I marched with DS 140 miles last spring, with a non partisan organization…and I respected that because I respected its goals and was ready to take bold action like they proposed. I am 61 years old, I got sick as a dog but pressed on…because I believed so much in our end game, and the spirit I felt along the way and in Washington was unparalleled in my lifetime. Noncompliance was the thing that drove me, I am absolutely done with ‘business as usual’. I have grandchildren that may never breathe clean air or drink clean water. Done…never means NEVER, and I will never vote for the Shill. Pragmatism has to at some point take a back seat to activism, and I personally believe the time is now…at least MY time is now. Please, I appreciate what the ‘millennials’ have done to inject energy into our cause. And eventually, “I believe that we will win !”. However, I will NOT vote for the Shill, nor support this DS manifesto…fuck no. I have seen this bullshit for 3–4 more decades than most of you. I was a Union rep’ when Reagan bust the Patco union, and we have been reeling since. The $7.25 minimum wage is directly attributed to the ‘trickle down’ or supply side economics that the SOB forced down our throats. Fuck his dead soul, and anybody who bought into the fleecing of America. So, now you believe that Shillary will be true to her politically expedient ‘all new’ stances ? Pffft…I will not have footprints on MY back by laying down, and capitulating before the tribunal. I need to sleep at night. As we see her ‘walk back’ her softened stances on the TPP already, and the fracking which we know she promoted worldwide…are you absolutely sure she is better than a bloviating ignoramous that just may be a closet Liberal ? I HEAR what he says, but I have SEEN what the Shill has done…a lying chicken hawk and environmental terrorist who is responsible for hundreds of thousands of deaths. Fuck no, it ain’t happening. I’m sorry, but DS has lost me right here…fuck ‘incremental change’ that will never come. I love Bernie, and I love DS…but you have both folded like an old accordion. This what ‘they’ wanted, and why they let us get arrested without kicking our asses. I am still ready to get my ass kicked, and freely accept that outcome. Peace and love to all, but I will follow my own path.
