If you have a Republican Senator write a letter telling them to do their job. We have a right that the Constitution is followed. The President has done his job and nominated a candidate to the Supreme Court. Now it is time for the Senators to do their job.

Democracy is about depth of participation, not about winning and losing. And something is happening this election cycle that is opening up a participatory consciousness I haven’t felt, at least at the national level, in four decades.
Bernie can win every debate and every election from now on, but only if he decides to clearly demonstrate he will accountable to the American people. All he needs to do is to sign the pledge of honor provided on my web site, and substitute monthly town hall meetings with televised monthly state of the union meetings with Congress.
I was going to respond in loganonenation's thread to disagree with his claim the GOP would become a backwater party unable to win presidential elections. I've seen enough of such The GOP Is Dead articles over the years to know it's nonsense. After all, many believed this when Goldwater bombed out... only to have Nixon win 4 years later. Many were saying the same after Obama was elected. Today the House and Senate are held by the GOP. Sure part of the problem is ineptitude and incompetence on the part of Dems... but that's another story.
as i've been posting for 5 weeks now, i'm not a fortune teller, but here it is.
1. hillary has never been ATTACK Ad so the current polls of her beating Trump 8% are meaningless. i said there is too much material out there in hillarys own words showing her corruption and lies... wait until the "factual" attack ads start running and the american public will quickly sour on hillary and trump will win.
From the Nancy Reagan funeral.
Caitlyn Jenner says she wants to be Ted Cruz's trans ambassador and he should call her. "I think he would be good for women's issues" "but I don't know how". Did she hit her head in the pole vault during Bruce's decathalon? Cruz's endorsement preacher wants girl scout leaders killed because girl scouts and their cookies promote homosexuality. Another nutter thought Teletubbies' Tinky Winky and Sponge Bob promote gay lifestyles too.
New Grijalva Ad supporting Bernie in Arizona
Hillary and her NeoCon backers will be starting WWIII promptly as soon as she is elected. Her centrist/liberal flunkies will all be rah rah rah let's GO TO WAR!!!
Yet Hillary isn't the problem...
Obama's centrist/liberal flunkies all 100% rubber stamped everything he did with ZERO introspection. When progressives opposed these policies, we were ridiculed, diminished and called "Republican", "conspiracy theorists" and "fake" Democrats.
The Internet, Presidential Candidates' positions guide
Hillary "Called for censoring social media to fight terrorism: “You’re going to hear all of the usual complaints, you know, freedom of speech, etc. But if we truly are in a war ... we’ve got to shut off their means of communicating.”
Bernie "Sanders opposed PIPA, saying, “It is absolutely essential that the Internet remain open and free of censorship or the chilling effects that result in self-censorship.”
you can guess where the Fascist GOP stand.

I'm not in any way a fan of Dodd Frank but it includes ways to unwind large but failing banks. Do we have any similar plans for unwinding or negating Free Trade agreements like NAFTA?
Or are they traps?
Bernie is ahead of where Obama was at this point.
How the 'New York Times' Sandbagged Bernie Sanders
The New York Times ran a piece about Bernie Sanders Monday, a sort of left-handed compliment of a legislative profile. It was called "Bernie Sanders Scored Victories for Years Via Legislative Side Doors."
Cable News Covers Everyone’s Speech but Sanders–Who Made the Mistake of Discussing Policy
