The Struggle Continues… and I Am Not Okay

Jessica,

I was a Bernie delegate from Minnesota. I share your pain. I left that pit of hell after the roll call vote and I never went back. I knew that I could not submit myself to the lie, the charade and the brainwashing of America being perpetrated by those corporate whores. The Democratic Party is no longer democratic by any meaning of the word — and the convention was nothing but a crowning of the Corporate Queen of the Oligarchy. I spent the rest of my time surrounding myself with people who love this country and are still willing to stand up and fight — those who protested and rallied in Philly. It was GREAT therapy! I was able to attend a wonderful Occupy DNC rally at Love Park, where I was even invited to share my testimony. I also got to hear Chris Hedges and Jill Stein speak at the historic Friends Hall. I’ve decided to channel my outrage and energy into getting people to vote for the greater good, not the lesser of two evils - Jill Stein, who has had a platform like Bernie’s since she first ran in 2012. I think it’s vital that we do all we can to raise up alternative parties to bring down the 2 major evil parties that now control this country. Peace to you, my fellow former Bernie delegate!
