What do you expect Bernie to do, wave a magic wand and negate the current primary results in the blink of an eye? Levitate while summoning Hillary in a pentagram made of organic tofu while pixie sprites tickle her into peeing herself on national TV?
Hell, there were still 1.3 million CA ballots left to count as of yesterday. We need to do the ground game work that has been left untouched for the past 40 years!!
The DEMOCRATIC voters would be acting like we were beggars asking for crumbs when we knocked on their doors looking for signatures. You’d think we were trying to sell them nuclear waste pills!
Bernie is exactly effing right! If you want a government that works for you, get out there and BECOME THAT GOVERNMENT, and treat well those that make the effort to do so!
In a self-governing nation, #YouGetTheGovernmentYouAre. It’s long past due that Progressives dive whole-heartedly into #CivilService. (Notice that the first results that come up are in the UK, not the USA?)
Ok, so I’m down off my soap box. I love you Bernie Brigade people. You’re my people. Really and truly. All of the above is historical now. I believe over 11,000 people around the country have responded to Bernie’s call since last night’s live-stream address. I only wish it were a couple of million of us.
Finally we are getting to the local-level involvement in government that will shift the ground under the feet of the political establishment in an organized fashion.
We have a LOT of catching up to do. The Republicans have been at it for 30 years or more, maybe 40. This is why they have been able to drag the country so far to the right.
The good news is that a lot of people agree with us. We can do this. We must do this.
