NYS Democratic Delegation Meeting Goes Horribly Wrong

What happened in New York State may not be indicative of what’s happening in official Democratic Party proceedings across the United States, but some of us wouldn’t be surprised if this is representative of how Democrats are treating fellow Democrats elsewhere. I stumbled upon a story from one of my district’s delegates who will be attending the Democratic National Convention in July. (This story is developing and...

The One Big Difference Between Bernie Supporters and Hillary Supporters

I think I discovered what’s probably the single, biggest difference between Hillary supporters and Bernie supporters who have been lifelong Democrats. Many Bernie supporters have firsthand knowledge of exactly how one or more of our elected Democrats let us down when they voted in support of their corporate sponsors in opposition to the good of their constituents. Hillary supporters have not. And if you haven’t personally...

I remembered that night. But then I saw all the explanations of how the caucus back in February didn’t actually select the delegates who would go to the national convention, but that’s not the case. The delegates voters selected back...

Why So Negative? Aren’t We Supposed to be Above This, Democrats?

I love Bernie Sanders. I do not hate Hillary – I just do not trust her to do the right thing about certain issues at this point in time. My lack of trust based on her donor list is not a personal attack – it’s a political reality. Anyone’s donor list is fair game when running for office. Embed from Getty Images What I am hating is the sudden Bernie fan hate. Yes, some of his supporters are sexist jerks. I do...
