Recorded June 23, 2016. House Democrats sitting on the floor in protest to push gun legislation four months before a general election seems like more than a coincidence. Perhaps they should've stood up after any of the 30+ mass shootings since 2008, or before hundreds of thousands of Americans were killed by guns since that time. Bernie says "it appears he is not going to be the Democratic nominee," and his supporters start jumping ship. One reason we admire Bernie is that he is above all a realist, in contrast to establishment Democrats who've been downright embarrassing in their display of desperation to distract us from Hillary Clinton's disastrous record. And just because he's not going to be the nominee doesn't mean Bernie is backing down. In his Op-Ed for The Washington Post, Bernie offers a laundry list of what he wants....except, of course, he offers a list of "What We Want." And "What We Want" appears to be in direct opposition to what Hillary Clinton wants. Finally, Clinton's potential Pentagon head Michele Flournoy is "Ready for Hillary," which means she's also "Ready for War." We contrast her chilling foreign policy approach with that of Congresswoman and Iraq War veteran Tulsi Gabbard. Tulsi's clarity shows why she and Bernie might indeed be our only hope. The struggle continues but not without us--put your energy into participating in the system and Be The Bern!
