Wed Jun 8, 2016, 04:44 PM

Yesterday I cast my vote in NM for Bernie Sanders.

I'm so glad he ran and got a good amount of people to support him. Think about. A man that doesn't run from the word "Socialist" gave a former First Lady, Senator, and SOS a pretty good run for her money. I think the platform will reflect the more leftward tilt of the current Democratic Party.

That said, I'm now %100 a Hillary Clinton supporter against the wannabe fascist Donald Trump. We can't let a man who holds such bigoted, repugnant views into the WhiteHouse! If people doubt that Hillary is a true progressive, they should look at her website. Her positions are very much to the left, with the exception of foreign policy, which I would call centrist.

I'm with her, time to kick some Vulgar Yam ass!

3. Well said

I don't completely agree that policy proposals on a website are a perfect indicator of where a candidate actually stands politically. Who they have as advisors is often more telling than what they post on their website.

But like you, I am ready to get on board with Hillary. There's enough that I like about her and I am terrified of Trump as president.

Glad to see from your avatar that I am not the only Bernie supporter who still loves the president.

4. I know people that support Hillary...

who voted for Sanders in 'Hillary safe' states for this reason:

I think the platform will reflect the more leftward tilt of the current Democratic Party.


They want the party to move to the left and felt that Bernie getting the votes he did made a statement and would force it. But they support Hillary. I understood what they were saying. People make their decisions to cast their votes for all sorts of reasons.
