All we need is a government willing to work for the people, and not for the 1%. Thanks Dandelion.

Noted. Thanks, Dandelion.
Dr. Stein says "The Democratic party is toxic." Absolutely correct. But, Bernie didn't have a choice to go form a different party, or even go with the Green Party, because the presidential debates are limited to only 2 parties.
"We are at the edge of the cliff; and we need to push back."
But, she said we need masses in the streets. We had that with Occupy; it was a Global Revolution. Thousands of cities around the world took part. And, they were dismantled. But, good did come from it. Those who worked hard within Occupy formed many groups focused on various issues. Social media helped to gather these people together.

So, I will still be voting for Bernie in our "presidential preferential primary" here Mar. 22nd---which won't really mean much by that time. But here in AZ, the Green Party is on the ballot. And, I will be voting for Jill Stein if the Dem. nominee is Clinton.

They all do need promotion, support, publicity. Bernie surely represents them, but was forced as mentioned to declare democrat. If he gets blocked or destroyed---consider voting for Jill Stein. This is a message to acknowledge, support a third and green party. The rest of the message includes that you don't see a significant difference between Hillary and any Republican. Most think it is wisdom to vote for her if Bernie loses, as she might stand a bigger chance of actually beating Trump and becoming prez. As she and Trump both belong to "The Machine", and to other "Machines"---Trump out-machines her there!! She'd not win. So, that alone is good enough reasoning and reason to vote for Jill Stein--if you truly believe in Bernie.

"Après nous le déluge" - ("After us, the deluge") is a French expression, attributed to Marquise de Pompadour, the lover of King Louis XV of France.An alternative form is "Après moi le déluge" ("After me, the deluge").
The expression has two possible meanings: 'After me, the deluge will come,' asserting that if the revolution ended his reign, the nation would be plunged into chaos; or 'After me, let the deluge come,' implying "I don't care what happens after I'm gone."

I truly wish Jill Stein could get some actual footing in national politics, she's been trying for so long, in years past when I took little quizzes about issues I always came out matching up with her nearly 100%. But the two party oligarchic system we have just leaves no room for great ideas because great ideas rarely come from the "establishment" and no matter who carries the republican or democratic banner, they are always professional politicians with establishment backgrounds despite their fiery talk, they will not upset the apple cart. Jill Stein would or die trying. Our two party system does not serve us any longer, if ever it did. That is one of the changes no one but for people like Jill ever are spoken of. Our system is part of the problem but it won't change from within so here we sit always accepting, it seems, the lesser of two evils, when we could really be doing some good in our world, including our part of it.

Hillary is Toxic and I pity those who are not hearing what she says and then watch what she does. She is another Marionette with the money pulling her strings. F the Dems & I can't stand Act Blue

Well i finally got to watching this though meant to earlier. As Hedges says, "But we don't live in a functioning democracy". I agree with the point he's making about when the Dem party co-opts resistance, but it's still not a reason not to support Sanders.Hedges sees what we're up against, which is more of a reason to support Sanders as realistic means of making some change.

The SOLUTION is not too buy into the multi-million dollar advertising compaigns predicated by the Republicans and Democrats.

Agree Bryan, this is our best chance at this time is with Bernie and then grow from there. Too many were not involved are now becoming takes a while to get to Chris Hedges thinking, of which I find is admirable.

I concur with you as well Darren.
