[Y]ou [Bernie] have gone on to accomplish what I don’t remember anyone else in American politics having done to such an extent: You have moved the entire spectrum of discussion dramatically more to the left, on every issue...

Your radical ideas ...  have nothing in common with Warren’s technocratic planner’s perspective, which ultimately refuses to place the people at the center and is just as elite-driven as anything it wishes to take on. This sense of last-minute urgency, which we could all feel so palpably in the spring of 2016, is missing so far from your campaign, despite the large crowds and the increasingly reverential attitude toward you from the candidates in the lower tiers.

In my opinion he should consolidate the "left"candidates by bringing them into his shadow government. That would quicken the debate and cause the vermin to crawl from under their rocks. In addition positions begin to get solidified and a contract can be devised for down ticket and a shadow cabinet can emerge. Someone such as Colonel Lawrence Wilkerson can scare the crap out of the war mongering section pushing them aside while creating a planning team to neutralize the CIA, FBI and State and a team to go top to bottom on the NSA and survellance apparatus and reestablish civilian control.

Elizabeth wouldn't have to hide behind trying to garner capitalist money and instead can work on building teams to dismantle the protection racket for wall street and with a new congress inact legislation to move them swiftly into Gitmo.

I believe this would drive turnout to cause an inordinate amount of overt fraud to deny the franchise. Once that is done we hit the streets and burn down capitalist state capitals across this great American nation...maybe not the last part.

Come on people let us take over this election and drive our own message with CSpan as our cable media outlet instead of the narrative from the elites' debate employees!!! Yeeeiii hiiii!!!
