Correcting the Record: Bernie Wins
While everyone is overly focused on distractionist drama and election results, America's real victories are being won without media fanfare. The political landscape is changing- and the establishment doesn't want you to notice.

Despite the constant back and forth about it, the truth is, Bernie Sanders has already won. How, you ask?

-By running a populace-loved campaign of integrity, truth, and principle, he has proven that the American people do not want to be coddled, manipulated, or told what they want to hear. We're sick of the bullshit. We demand and deserve real respect.

-By refusing to pander to corporate sponsorship, instead continually making (and breaking) fund-raising records through populace-supported small donor contributions, he's proved that big money in politics is not in fact a necessary evil, simply a bad choice.

-By refusing to sink to slander and attack ads against his opponents, instead only highlighting factual differences in their history and policy, Bernie has shown that a higher moral standard and issue-oriented campaigning are the most effective political offenses.

-By remaining consistent in his lifelong humanitarian values, civil rights causes, and pragmatic foresight, Bernie has demonstrated that making the right choice in the first place is infinitely more valuable than continually evolving or poll-chasing political expediency.

-By refusing to stop running until every last vote is counted, he shows the commitment and drive to keep fighting for us even when things aren't easy- as he always has. He welcomes every chance to empower voters with the truth- his goal regardless of nomination.

In Bernie, we see a rare example of a politician with nothing to hide. No backroom deals, no doublespeak, no patience or pandering to the media's constant 'gotcha' questions and skewed narrative. He's a civil servant and a genuinely good man, husband, and grandfather.


But if that wasn't enough, his competition has conveniently doubled down to ensure we see the disturbingly stark difference between his FDR-esque honest common sense approach vs the typical short-sighted greedy super-capitalist 'lesser of two evils' politician:


-Hillary's campaign last year started out as a Neoliberal/Republican platform in Democrat clothing. Every talking point she's using now was an eventual 'evolvement', as Bernie's message and resulting poll numbers reluctantly pulled her (verbally) to the left.

-Having lost to Obama in 2008, in large part due to Superdelegates, campaign finance laws were therefore changed. This enabled her to build an undemocratic pyramid scheme, securing most delegates ahead of time with political and financial incentive.

-Hillary's establishment campaign strategy has been similar to Trumps' - "say whatever gets votes, truth is just an inconvenient restraint." From campaign speeches to tv debates, she's done her best to inaccurately paint Sanders (and his supporters) with any possible baseless spin.

-The attitude and ego of Hillary and her campaign are astoundingly smug. The go-to counterattack for badly losing the youth vote is to call them "ignorant" or "misled". For someone blatantly using our society's biggest tools of ignorance and deception, this is beyond insulting.

-Hillary has a well-documented history of saying one thing and doing another, proved by her voting record, her emails, and anyone who has been paying attention this election cycle. Her trust and likeability factor are negative nationwide. America is sick of bad political actors.

-Now Hillary's billionaire, corporate, for-profit prison, and Wall Street funded SuperPAC are paying millions to flood the internet with paid trolls, misinformation, and sponsored attack articles under the ironic guise of "Correcting the Record". To me, this is the last straw.

What is this, China? North Korea? Stalin's Russia? When media control and manipulation, PR orchestration, establishment-funded immoral false narratives, lies and propaganda are the only 'winning' tools for your election, it's time to admit it's over. The #NeverHillary / #ImNotWithHer movements are valid commentary on how she is inevitably viewed by the increasing majority of informed Americans. Most of us are quite aware that what's portrayed on television isn't reality, it's a corporate-backed infotainment tool for setting narratives and manipulating the masses. The youth- ironically in part through institutionalized poverty- largely cut the cord, got online, got factually educated, and are now Hillary's biggest (and growing) road block. Her voting base is the cultist Democrats, the clueless / uncaring rich, and the CNN-watching elderly (which her campaign mass-mailed surrogate forms to months before the race even began to further rig the outcome). Her success thus far has been frankly more about name recognition, closed primaries, rigging the game, and financing voter ignorance than anything else. Between continual election mismanagement / fraud, having Bill illegally but repeatedly show up at voting locations, protecting her high-dollar rah-rah bank speeches more than her emails, and now actively trying to censor and bury truth on the web... only the truly sociopathic could continue to support her.


This is our time to reject establishment politics, its selfish goals of money and power, and the undermining mockery to our nation's values it has become. This is the time for Americans to unite and with one voice of #Solidarity state firmly and with permanent conviction, #EnoughIsEnough. No more. It's time we had a real democracy. It's time our voices and votes counted. It's time to stop accepting the games, greed and corruption as inevitable. It's time to get money out of politics, time to start supporting only candidates and legislation that serve our country, not just enable the wealthy few who think we're gullible enough to keep being manipulated against our own best interests. It's time we demanded that our representatives actually represented us. It's time for real change. It's time for a #PoliticalRevolution.
