The Revolution Continues — With Or Without Bernie — Probably With

The movement for fair elections, economy, society, and healthcare was always going to continue with or without Bernie (as long as too many people didn’t give up too early). No-one can stay around forever, after all.

Still, the very fact that Bernie all but conceded his own presidential nomination race last Tuesday in order to further nail down the goals of the Political Revolution (in fact putting Hillary on the spot for it), and the fact that he is moving forward with his campaign’s successor organizations whose purpose it is to pass the momentum of his campaign to a continuation of this people’s movement; it all means that, his health or other powerful circumstances not withstanding, he will be with the revolution for some time still to come — as will others, only some of whom we have yet seen. Some of whom we ourselves may become. Bernie kindled something wonderful.

And for those who are losing heart too soon: The lesson of all revolutions is: It’s up to us. Additionally, all major struggles come across heart-wrenching crossroads and defeats. It’s the long haul which counts. Take heart again, and continue the fight. We are not done, yet. When we’re done, you will know. When we’re done, you won’t be looking around at nothing but wreckage and a few distant palaces and private jets on the hazy horizon, but at a world that’s livable for all of us, beautiful and sustainable. And you’ll be running in a treadmill from your cradle to the grave no more. And in many parks there will be statues of an old man with a wild shock of hair.


Note: Also don’t discount the sly tactics someone like Bernie may use in political arm wrestling…

WE-HAVE-A-DREAM-with-links

Breathe easy, fellow awakened citizens! The war on our rigged system isn’t lost just yet.

Earlier this week, Bernie Sanders did what many of us feared the most: He endorsed Hillary Clinton. [Insert scream here!]

Many of us have agonized ever since. Let’s let out a deep breath and think. Like Bernie does. Continue reading “Amazing Game: An Old Fox Playing Political Chess-Poker with the Establishment”

His Flame Keeps Marching On – PS

This post is for all those who are dismayed by Bernie Sanders’ endorsement of Hillary Clinton. Or perhaps I should say, it is for all those who want our country reclaimed from the oligarchs and transformed into a country of the people, by the people, for the people. All others can go back to eating caviar, golfing at the country club, or whatever else you usually do.

OK, now that we are alone, hear this: Full article on Political Storm

2016 – Rage Against the Dying of the Light

BS-Feel-the-Bern

(This is a wonderfully written guest blog by Astranada Gamsey.)

Recently some of my family members have mentioned to me that people in my hometown have been commenting on my support for Bernie Sanders.

“Does your sister work for Bernie Sanders?” Or, “Why is your sister so angry?” Or “Hillary is not that bad, why doesn’t Astra like her?”

When I hear these comments secondhand, I laugh. My family can’t answer these questions. Only I can; so here goes… Continue reading “2016 – Rage Against the Dying of the Light”

The Year of Awakening and Change

An awakening public is beginning to fight back against the small layer of America’s society which is controlling everything. Many of us can join these efforts which make 2016 a year of much-awaited change and renewed hope. Read more about it in my full length article on Political Storm.

They Don’t Take Us Seriously

Even though we are always told we live in a democracy, there is now solid evidence that our elected officials don’t – to say it politely – give a rat’s ass about what we the people want. In a joint study scientists from Princeton and Northwestern University proved that “the preferences of the average American have a near-zero impact upon public policy.” Read more about it in my full length article or watch the above video for the short version.

Change is in the Air – Which Part will you Play?

Even people who have their heads stuck in the sand – which is to say they get all their “news” from the corporate media – must have noticed by now that something unusual is up this year. Indeed there is: Change is in the air. Real change. And the big question is: Who will be part of it? Continue reading “Change is in the Air – Which Part will you Play?”
