Liberals see this and think their cynicism is vindicated. They get more defeatist, conservatives get more organized, and the cycle repeats.

Now along comes Sanders and he says all the things cynical liberals are thinking--the system is bought and rigged, your vote doesn't count.

Then he says, vote for me and I'll magically make it go away. And when he loses because smart people see through it, it's obviously rigged!

So Bernie is actually perpetuating the key reason Democrats lose: he's basically telling liberals if he loses, their voice doesn't matter.

When literally if they did the same thing Republicans do--register, vote, call and write to Congress--they would win back government.

Here's the truth, people: Citizens United did poison our political process, but not half as much as liberal voter apathy did.

Enough of the "both sides"ism. It's an illusion. Moneyed interests don't empower Republicans--Republicans empower moneyed interests.

Any special interests who are trying to sway Democrats--that happens because the law says they can. Who wrote the law that way? Republicans.

Enough. It's time to see through all the fraud and sanctimony the professional left has fallen for and foisted on us. We DO have a voice.

We are not really an oligarchy. We just look like one, because the only people who show up to vote support oligarchs. We can change that.

Thanks to her we have healthcare for poor kids, adoption reform, the last 2 hikes in the MW. She's DONE stuff. It's Bernie who did nothing.

Hillary would do much more to change the system than Bernie. She'd inspire loads of liberal women to run for office up and down the ballot.

Don't believe me? Studies show electing a women governor boosts women running down-ballot by 2%. A woman senator, 3%. Imagine a woman POTUS.

These cynical (and often thinly-veiled sexist) attacks on her do not make you liberal. They make you part of the reason liberals lose.

So for the umpteenth time: vote in every race, call your representatives every day, attend every meeting and rally. Make your voice heard.

Because the reason liberals have lost up and down the ballot is simple: GOP have made you blame everything but yourself for voter apathy.

that make me want to vote for Jill Stein. Not Hillary as much as her supporters. And they say WE'RE a cult? OY.

Stein is an antiscience crank and a dilettante with zero qualifications for political office.

And I'm sorry, but " is a dick" is not a valid reason to not vote for the clearly most qualified candidate.
