With all due respect to Hillary supporters, I cannot enthusiastically support her bid at this time, and will be #WaitingForBernie to announce (likely within a couple weeks).
Sanders is the only real progressive in the race. Sanders understands that the pillaging of working Americans by corporate demons and the ruling elites is the worst it has ever been in this country, and that it takes truly bold reforms to fight back against this onslaught. Bernie Sanders has the clarity of our situation, the strength of conviction to fix our problems, and the solutions we need.
Hillary Clinton announced her candidacy for President of the United States of America a week ago. If she ends up getting the parties endorsement, I will support her 100% since every single Republican who has or will potentially declare is a regressive monster who will do horrific damage to America. But until that time I support Sanders.
Hillary is pro-choice, pro-LGBT marriage equality, pro-equal pay for women, pro-education, pro-science, pro-green energy, pro-infrastructure repair, pro-immigration reform, pro-voting rights, pro-civil rights, pro-conservation, etc. However she also has uncomfortably close ties to Wall Street, corporate tyrants, and the bloated military-industrial complex. Even though conservatives to the right of Hitler will name call Hillary a "soicalst!!" like they did with Obama, the truth is that Hillary is at best a centrist, probably even leaning center-right when everything is accounted for.
However, I will be waiting for Bernie Sanders to announce his candidacy for POTUS, and will give him my full support. Bernie Sanders is a true progressive and a strong leader. He speaks truth to power and deserves our unwavering support.

I mentioned yesterday, in writing about students learning about Islam in a world history class, that the Bible contains the same requirements as Islam regarding non-believers and others found objectionable: that they be killed.
I'll bet his employee turnover rate is nil.
Thanks to for the heads up.
So cool that Kluwe dressed this casual. He spoke for about a half hour about the importance of standing up to fight for equality, then fielded questions from the audience for about 45 minutes to an hour. Chris Kluwe has a deep passion that it is all of our duties to save civilization from internal divisions that will destroy us. The centerpiece of that division is the exclusionary belief that the majority often holds that they deserve special rights they deny others. That's at the heart of why Kluwe fights for equal rights for LGBT folks, as well as other suppressed groups.
