Preliminary Thoughts -- Primary April, 26, 2016
Hillary did well. She is, in my eye, the Democratic presumptive nominee. BUT ALL Democrats must UNITE lest the enthusiasm Trump engenders, god forbid, wins the presidency for him. A few of Sanders's supporters incredulously even have said they might vote for Trump. That, if true is, yes, hard to believe.
Sanders's supporters, whose hearts are in the right place, must embrace the rest of those in the Democratic Party who supported Hillary. We are ALL in one Party -- the Democratic Party. Either we rise with Hillary Clinton or sink to the depths of an explosive perhaps even nuclear swamp with unqualified Trump.
Reality speaks. I loved much of what Sanders said but thought him too old. He now, after the grueling primary pace, looks even older. The arduously demanding job of the presidency significantly ages even the youngest who occupy it. More importantly, though, I thought Sanders's rant was ear numbing preachy, sermonizing, didactic and a one track record. He was, to a large degree, a one issue candidate, most importantly, with little foreign policy experience and no plan as to how he would get that for which he advocated done.
I do, though, understand why he engendered the support he did. He speaks truth on the issue of economic inequality and the 1% usurpers of our national wealth. We must embrace that truth, be our own citizens united and elect the Democratic Party's soon to be nominee, Hillary Clinton. She has experience in all venues and will not eviscerate the sacred Constitutional and Bill of Rights principles of our nation -- liberty and justice for all men, for all women, for all minorities, immigrants, the disabled and those LGBT citizens of this nation who have fought so long and so hard for those rights that should be increased and not taken away!
NOW GO OUT, WORK FOR HER AND ALL DOWN TICKET DEMOCRATIC CANDIDATES. LET'S TAKE THE PRESIDENCY, TAKE BACK THE SENATE AND MAKE GAINS OR EVEN TAKE BACK THE HOUSE. WE CAN DO ALL OF THAT IF WE STICK TOGETHER AND GET OUT THE DEMOCRATIC VOTE!
