Cornell West spoke in South Bend today; he talked about knowing Pete as a baby, since Pete’s dad is also an academic and they spent summers in Italy together doing research in the early 80s. Someone asked him about the future of the Democratic Party and he said, “Well, Pete is family, but that doesn’t mean I’m going to vote for him. I love my mom, but I don’t think she should be in office.” He went on to talk about “corporatist milquetoast” Democrats that don’t motivate people to get out and vote. (Can confirm, Pete likes to say he won with 80% of the vote, but only 10% of the town voted.) Then he went into talking about Bernie, how he’s consistent, and consistently on the side of justice. It was beautiful, and made me so glad to have such an orator with us.

Been on the verge of becoming homeless due to being taken advantage of by landlord and can’t donate right now but still very much enthused to help.

I know this isn't the legal sub but In the vein of transparency I've felt awful not being able to contribute financially so far and will donate as soon as I find a more permanent housing situation.

I am still very much encouraged by the campaign and enthused as much as 2016.

I hope when Bernie becomes president we can tackle and close some housing loop holes that exist so people such as myself have stronger renting rights and such.

How do you feel about many on the Left who abandoned Bernie and are still Hillary apologists all of a sudden now are enamored with AOC?

I love Ocasio-Cortez and really hope she will reach the presidency in the future and is a great person to spread Bernie's original message however what bothers me is many now who still continue to bash Bernie and still love Hillary claiming her loss was the result of anything but her being a bad corporate candidate now love AOC isn't that hypocritical/poorly educated? I feel like that's our {The Left's} major flaw right now disunity and lack of knowledge of the core beliefs of our canidates. It seems now we are to quickly to decide we like someone based solely on gender/race/age etc. I've seen so many people bashing Bernie for no apparent reason yet hail AOC as the hero of the democratic party when their ideologies are nearly exactly the same. I'm really afraid this kind of mindset might scew us over in the election this year especially seeing the bad media already throwing hits at the likes of Bernie and Tulsi Gabbard.

I am DONE voting for lesser of two evils. I voted for Jill Stein in 2016, because writing in Bernie Sanders' name on my ballot wouldn't be counted.

I won't even vote for Warren. She already PROVED she's weak and abandons us when it's difficult to fight for what's right. She shut her mouth for TWO YEARS, about the Democratic Party's Presidential Nomination rigging, and she refused to stand up for for Bernie AND US, when Bernie was fighting for what she professes to believe. WE DON'T HAVE TIME FOR HER WEAKNESS OR OTHER POLITICIANS' CORRUPTION. #BernieOrBust!
