Eleanor Martinez:

The GOP tactics used by the Democratic Party, a party I've been a member of since 1974, has disgusted and angered me so thoroughly that, after the convention, I will be permanently leaving this party. I will not associated myself with such a reprehensible organization.

Maybe the Democratic Party NEEDS to die. Or at least be seriously gutted. There are way more than enough of us to form our own party--a party that represents US, and listens to US, not Wall Street or Big Pharma or other moneyed interests, and, Bernie Sanders has the support of a majority of Independent voters, nearly half of the present Democrats and, believe it or not, about 20% of disgruntled Republicans. I cannot and will not be part of a party that does not listen to me and operates without a moral compass.

Dr. Jan Kirsch: I find this letter compelling and believe that you are beyond reproach in terms of credibility. I am glad that you document this well. Some Bernie followers will hurl expletives at you, or worse - say that you have sold out or lost moral stamina. But you already know this. Those of us who know you understand that you are striving to make the most of Sanders' determined efforts for real change. I would easily support this alternative before allowing Trump to triumph. I have already smelled the Reichstag burning.

Susan Sarabasha:

Very well written and a clear cogent argument. However, I disagree. I have seen most VP's become silenced in that position. They are in the wings waiting for something to happen to the POTUS, not much more. Bernie would have way more power IN the Senate than as the titular head of it. He is also hinting at more. We need to wait and see. Bernie is a brilliant man who forecasts well.

Susan Larson: I think Bernie Sanders as VP would be the most healing thing for our country at this time. I am appalled at some of the comments that I have read from 'former' Bernie supporters and at the wise age of 71, I sit and contemplate that this may be another source of what is wrong with our country, at the moment. If I don't get my way, I will lash out and Trump comments all over the place. I am very sad about this. I am also appalled at how quickly a person that some say they 'revered' can be thrown under the bus.

Now that this is off my chest, I am not sure how I will vote come November. I still hope for a miracle at the convention. Whatever, Bernie has definitely begun a movement that I pray will continue. President Obama did as well, but I think many of us were ignorant to the fact that the President has his hands tied if the Congress is not in line.
