SMOKINCHOICES (and other musings)

DNC This is over the line of decency!


The American DEMOCRATIC PARTY  headed up by Debbie Wasserman Schultz must have gone  over the hill and for all I know – “Out-of-their-minds”  if they believe they can pull the wool over so many, many of us who TOTALLY, precisely HAVE MADE A DECISION about our voting choice,  and unwilling to give up that right;  will NOT BE COERCED!     It is too bad that you are so accustomed to having  complete control and shaping all outcomes  to suit  your personal pre-conceived ideas of how things  aught to be.  WON’T WORK THIS TIME.  Incidentally,  this is one of the reasons we are so enamored with Bernie Sanders  – – his vision suits our needs better than anyone else who is running and he’s got our vote.    

I haven’t a spare minute of time let alone money to ‘donate’ to the DNC because my experience has shown me they no longer represent me or my interests  nationally or locally.  This is supposed  to be fair,  independent and impartial with the presidential hopefuls . . . yet it is anything but that.    Shultz has demonstrated that it’s nothing more than part of that “BIG MACHINERY”  we are all so opposed to.. . . the one where the FIX is in and serving only the big (corrupt, corporate) design.     D.S. Schultz should have been disqualified from a”leadership” role,  if for no other reason than her blind intolerance of anyone but Hillary  (still carrying her water  since Hillary’s first run, which she apparently never got over).   This woman has no shame;  that’s on her!  However, she has no legal right to keep trying to run the show by her own manipulative plans.  What do people  love most about Bernie (besides his excellent ideas)?    We admire his authenticity.  He is straight up, honest and legitimate. . .for a very  long time. Has no need to play games, cheat or throw dirty punches.   Not his style and everyone knows that.  

This latest ruse is unconscionable and if necessary – a couple hundred million of us will say so — IN COURT!     America, be on guard – seems we ARE under attack – from within.  Just wanted any who might be interested to know where I stand  and I feel this is a terrible way to run a zoo. . . or U can stand against it!   Jan


Bernie Sanders for President

Jan –

Here’s the truth: from the first day of this campaign, our success has shocked many of the Democratic Party Establishment who would have preferred a coronation over a competitive campaign.

And the reality is that the huge turnouts that we’ve had at our meetings, our strong fundraising, our volunteer base, and quick rise in the polls have caused the Democratic National Committee to place its thumb on the scales in support of Hillary Clinton’s campaign. You see that fact evidenced in their decision to bury he Democratic debates on weekends during nationally televised football games. It’s more or less an open secret.

This week, due to a fault in their own technology platforms, the DNC took unprecedented steps to take away our access to data accumulated through tens of thousands of voter contacts made by our volunteers — supporters like you who power our political revolution. In essence, the Democratic Establishment is effectively shutting down our ability to access the information we need for field campaigns and volunteer activities just six weeks before the Iowa Caucuses. And they haven’t told us when they will turn it back on.

In other words, the leadership of the Democratic National Committee is attempting to undermine our insurgent campaign. This is not acceptable. We can and must respond.

Sign our petition telling the Democratic National Committee — in no uncertain terms — that you expect a level playing field in this primary campaign. This is important.

That the Democratic Party would deny our staff and volunteers access to data needed to contact voters in Iowa and New Hampshire on the day we reached two million individual contributions and received two of our most prominent endorsements is disconcerting.

We hope they’ll do the right thing for us, and for our supporters, quickly. But so far they haven’t listened to our campaign. But I am hopeful they’ll listen to you.

Send a powerful message to the DNC by adding your name to our petition today:

We’ll be in touch soon as this situation evolves. You are the power behind this campaign. We are doing something unprecedented, and that has a lot of people scared.

In solidarity,

Jeff Weaver
Campaign Manager
Bernie 2016
