Bernie Sanders has endorsed Hillary Clinton, and while there has been a little speculation raised that he was forced to do so, as per DNC rules, and that the campaign lives on, the mass media will not allow that. We have known since the beginning that the establishment does not support Bernie, and will do almost anything to stop this political movement. A movement of the people to take back their country. A movement of positive, progressive ideas, that restored the power to the people. Where does that movement go from here?
Does the movement continue with Hillary Clinton?
Like many Sanders supporters, I was a little disappointed when he formally endorsed Hilary Clinton. They couldn't be more different, and that is why many people are looking for an alternative. Bernie was the candidate for so many, due to his ideas. Bernie started building a political revolution, to take on the millionaire class, and give the country back to its people. Bernie's campaign was one of economic, political, environmental, and social justice. Taking on Wall Street, and a corrupt political finance system. Saying no to TPP, and yes to good American jobs. Tackling climate change, and providing tuition-free higher education. While in theory, Hilary has now supported many of the progressive ideas, and the Democratic party has the most progressive platform in its history, she is still part of the corporate establishment that the Sanders revolution was so against. Hilary was under FBI investigation, and every fact that she claimed has came back to be a lie. In a typical election season she would not be electable, however this is not a normal election season. Many people will hold their nose, and vote for the establishment, vote for nothing to change, they will vote for Hilary Clinton. However, many will not vote for her, many will never vote for someone who is in support of everything they are against. It is time for an alternative, and we may be seeing that.
