There are two things that really tick me off lately -- the constant pounding to vote blue no matter what - shouldn't that start near the end of the primary?
Also, the bombardment pushing Bernie to drop out - aimed at his supporters! Why? Are we supposed to give up our right to vote for our choice when the primaries have barely started? I don't remember this from previous elections. Is this new or just someone taking advantage of Facebook and the Internet to push out the propaganda?
Someone asked on a thread - why people would choose not to vote for Hilary. A reasonable question. People responded with things like -- I'm an independent, I'm with the Green Party, I'm a Republican. Essentially, voters that never would have gone to Hilary if Bernie was never in the race.
There is also a large number of disenfranchised Democrats -- those that see the DNC expecting their votes because there is no other place for them - the progressives. Who keep asking for change and see the Progressive Caucus told to behave and keep in line. It is only Elizabeth Warren that seems to have broken their oppressive mantle to be take n seriously by the party. The progressive voters see this and are not happy about being treated as lap dogs. Their expectations are ignored. I see this as part of the 'revolution' -- against the DNC refusing to stand for them.
Basically, this means that some of these voters - are not Hilary's to snag!
