Yes, Senator Bernie Sanders made it clear from the beginning of his campaign for the the Democratic Party's nomination for president. He was in this race for many reasons but, win or lose the Party's presidential nomination, the overriding reason was the creation of an ongoing organization, a political revolution to bring about the populist programs he had been advocating for at least 30 years. That organization now bears the name, "Our Revolution."

I had been involved in some way with every presidential election since 1948, but never before with the emotional and financial support I gave to the Bernie campaign. As some evidence, here's a list of some 14 blog essays I wrote, starting in June of 2015.

" "On Being, Doing and 'Compromise;' What's Next for Senator Sanders' Revolution? Here's My Suggestion," June 9, 2016

" "When 'The Morning After' Looks Even Worse," June 8, 2016

" "Searching for the Media's Soul," June 7, 2016

" "Why Won't Media Give Bernie a Break?" March 23, 2016

" "The State of the Media," February 28, 2016

" "Bernie's Extraordinary, Unacknowledged Accomplishment," February 3, 2016

" Why Nobody 'Wins' the Iowa Caucus," February 1, 2016

" "Caucus With Your Heart AndHead -- For Bernie," January 28, 2016

" "Why I'm Caucusing for Sanders and You Should Too," January 22, 2016

" "Feeling the Bern at The Mill," December 9, 2015
