"I want confirmation of what I believe is true.... that all over this country--in so-called Red States and in so-called Blue States--people are profoundly disgusted about what is happening and that they want real change."

Noted and shared with a comment. I registered Green and vote that way locally. I've moved, so have to re-register before the deadline for November.

Anything that make the Democrats unelectable helps.

I'd definitely prefer Bernie to Hillary but I don't know that he can win. His ideas certainly can. But the machine that backs candidates will find him altogether too reasonable to support. Sigh.

Noted, Bernie I have been fighting for a long time, but feel most people prefer to moan than act.

Gladly noted. Thanks Judy and Ashley. Bernie may not be able to win, but a couple of debates between him and Hillary would be fascinating, and illuminating, as well!

Thanks everyone. At least, if nothing else, Bernie Sanders will give voice to some sane ideas that badly need to be heard.

Noted. Thank you, Judy.

I love Bernie. Of course he won't have the mountains of corporate cash that HRC will. Duh. That should tell us something.

If the people could only hear Bernie his popularity would soar.

Ordinary people have been standing and fighting bureaucracy for the majority of their lives...but the government (Congress) just refuses to listen. Thanks Bernie for your effort....Judy for posting and Ashley H. for the forward.

Sorry I'm late for the Bernie party....family commitments. I LOVE Bernie Sanders for everything that Ed said on the video and more. Those of us who have been listening to Bernie now for a long time, understands he is correct in many ways and he speaks truth to power in a simple way that everyone can understand.....he talks clearly and down to earth.

But the right will pound upon him.....oh that Socialist.......even worse than the Socialist Obama.....who isn't any type of Socialist, but the Right has so many people convinced of it. Will have us waving the Communist flag so on and so forth. Can Bernie cut through all the propaganda that will be tossed out there? Can he compete with the Big Money that people like the Koch Brothers will flood into the media and every city and hamlet around in the USA? Can he get the poor Republicans who have been voting against their own best interest to actually in fact "hear" HIS message through all the years of indoctrination they have hooked onto? All that will be seen if he runs.

And then, if he runs as an Independent will we get the same old crap we got back with Romney/Obama when we had two terrific Candidates running that were pushing the policies that Bernie Sanders has been speaking about. We had the Green Party and the Justice Party........but all I hear is.......if you vote for them you'll allow in fact the Republicans to win.......or the other side was saying.....you'll let the Democrats win.

My personal feelings, link Bernie Sanders and Elizabeth Warren together and Hillary, sorry dear, if you care for this Country you'll move out of the way. Her husband was tied to Corporate by passing NAFTA, removing the Glass-Steagall and sending many women into DEEP poverty with the Welfare Reform Act of 1996. I know that she isn't he but I'm afraid there is too much similarities and she is very hawkish as well.

So it comes down to what I've always said and how Dennis Kucinich spoke most eloqently on, is to vote with your heart instead of traveling down the same old road to disaster election after election with the same two parties that got you here to begin with......and if he runs Democrat, get out there and work for him and vote!
Dennis Vote With Your Heart
