Why medicare for all is a no brainer. Of course, it is the compassionate thing to do, but economically it works in every way.

Coulda, woulda, shoulda. Sad! Bernie has been out and about visiting many of the states that trump carried.
Lately, I've noticed the election is being rehashed (maybe it's because Hillary has written a book --'What Happened'). Personally, I think that could have waited a while longer. I've recently read a number of articles blaming Bernie and his supporters for trump's win. I would submit the blame should be owned by the Democratic party and HRC, herself. She was a flawed candidate from day one, especially considering the collective mentality of the American voter. She just didn't fit the need; that's the bottom line. In my opinion, the handwriting was on the wall. Practically anyone else could have trounced trump. With the correct opponent, trump should have failed miserably.
Anyway, whatever, we're in a world of shit with the madman in the oval office now.
Here's Bernie out and about. short video

Bernie's the most popular politician in the U.S.
Yeah, he could have won. For better or worse, we would not be dealing with the mentally, spiritually, ethically, morally, intellectually, socially damaged, fascist nut job president we have now, and we would not be watching the disintegration of whatever gains we, as a country and culture, have accrued over many, many decades. He is stripping all that is good/healthy from the framework of our society. He has unleashed and encouraged the demons that already, obviously, existed.

This is an excellent article that, definitively, correctly shows the difference between HRC and Bernie Sanders. I didn't think she could do anything else to make me dislike her more and and further erode my respect for her. But, boy, here it is. She has stated 2 of the things that got her through the election loss are yoga and chardonnay. It, certainly, sounds, to me, like she could use some more yoga and a lot more chardonnay. This is so damn ill timed, number one, and number two, it's, from what I've read, one long 500 page whine. Who the fuck has time to care when this country is being systematically torn asunder. Let's talk about that and find a remedy and present a unified front of some kind. Gee, that's what Sanders is and has been doing, for the most part.
I remember when she sent her daughter (early on in the campaign) to Chicago to blatantly lie about Bernie's health care position. I was alarmed and surprised. In Ohio, she stated she was not a progressive, but a pragmatic something or something "that gets things done". (there are videos--so she altered her pitch to assuage her audience--Bernie didn't). Sanders has been professing the same platform since he got into politics in Vermont--he hasn't deviated. When she went to W. Virginia, she completely absconded with and presented Bernie's infrastructure plan, verbatim. Bernie didn't tell her not to go to Wisconsin or Michigan. She didn't have to bring Obama into her loss.
She secured the votes of all the super delegates before the campaign. The Bernie Bro issue was, probably, bots to a great degree. It's now proven the russian hackers were very actively disparaging her (but she left herself wide open, totally). She was a never-never on single payer healthcare. Bernie brought her way to the left of her original positions. She was being honest in Ohio when she told that group she is "not a progressive". When did you ever here her talk about supporting unions--but she sure took their money. Why did she never, genuinely, fight for the poor while campaigning?
What a shame this is, and it is 100% self serving. Then let's think about the 2,000 dollar charge to hear her sell her book. Some things never change. This is disgusting. Yes, shameful.

Bernie brings it on, and he's garnering substantial support.
https://www.commondreams.org/news/2017/09/12/groundbreaking-democratic-co-sponsors-rush-aboard-bernies-medicare-all-train

This just blows my mind. During the '16 presidential campaign, Howard Dean was totally pro HRC. After clinton got the promise of almost all the super delegate votes BEFORE she even began campaigning, Howard Dean maintained that, despite Bernie Sanders winning a state, as in Vermont (both Sanders and Dean are from Vermont), those promised super delegate votes were to remain in clinton's column. Now he's so pro Sanders????

Bernie scoffs at HRC's attacks blaming him for her loss. Her shit is not going to change a thing. She's a sore loser--bottom line, tragically (now we have both a sore winner and a sore loser), and she feels the need to act out in public. Focusing on her isn't going to change a fucking thing. Focus right now needs to be elsewhere. Bernie took hits from her camp through the primary, but kept moving on--he even tried to make her email thing a nonissue in one of the first debates (and speaking of debates, she stringently controlled those--how many, where and when. Shame on her.

Bernie addresses foreign policy this Thursday.
http://www.huffingtonpost.com/entry/bernie-sanders-foreign-policy-establishment_us_59c2ee8be4b0c90504fb65cb

This is a very good critique of H. Clinton's book (and her), What Happened. It's just out and already has sold 300,000 copies--that's in a week. I have not read her book, nor will I (there are too many good books to read). She has been everywhere pushing her book and plight--mostly all vapid fluff, but Rachael Maddow did most of a full show interviewing Clinton, and it was good. I agree with this article in it's entirety.

Well, Here is Bernie Sanders foreign policy speech/approach. All I can say, is woulda, coulda, shoulda. It's over 1 hour long. It's excellent.

This is a 50 minute discussion on The Real News network with Thomas Frank talking about HRC's attack of Bernie Sanders and casting blame on Bernie for her election loss. This is before the release of her book, but she provided many accusations against Bernie in the lead up to that book release.
She has adamantly said she is "not going away", and contends she will never, again, be a candidate (we'll see). She has started her own PAC (political action committee) and intends to rule through that avenue (so she says, now). She intends to, still, push her political philosophy and will be fighting the left side of the democratic party. She, like trump, has a rabid 1/3 of the voters who can't move on.
Of course,I wish she would have won, because anybody is better than trump. But, at this point, I truly wish she would just go away. She is driven to be relevant--and she's not, and she really has it in for Bernie, and that's just a serious case of misplaced aggression.
Worth watching, but it is 50 minutes.

Bernie lays out the grim plan for massive theft of American tax payers by the republican party and their billionaire donors--at the expense of everyone other than them. Why is it billionaires and wealthy people want more, more money to hoard--especially when it will remove essentials from the working class? This is why trump was put there--to cut taxes and make the wealthy richer. Taking money and support away from people who really need it to give it to people who have way more than enough to last forever is some kind of sickness.
It is now understood, TRICKLE DOWN DOESN'T WORK, because once these wealthy folks get billions more, they will not put it to work to create more jobs, it will be put in off shore hidden funds, like in the Caimans--like they do now. And, why the hell would
anyone believe trump and his cronies when they are all serial liars. 6 minutes
https://www.democraticunderground.com/1017459711
and, Bernie/CNN interview 8 minutes
https://www.democraticunderground.com/1017459704
and, Republican tax cuts will be acheived by cutting medicare and medicaid. WTF!
https://www.democraticunderground.com/1017459724
and, yes, trump, the slob, has reached the point of being "unspeakable".

Bernie speaks at a small college in Vermont introducing his legislation in the Senate and and legislation in the the House that provides for free higher education (that includes college, vocational, apprenticeship, etc,). It's been done before, and is being done elsewhere. It is NOT a radical idea! about 1 hour and 20 minutes. This should be seen. Watch it and share it. Share it with others on facebook or any way you can get this information out.

Well, ain't this a trip. Bernie Sanders' political manifesto is a young adult best seller (it was written, expressly, for young adults). He is doing more for the progressive branch of the democratic party than all the rest of them put together. Coulda, woulda, shoulda.
