Frankly, I'm very impressed. DFA/ Democracy for America, founded with the mailing list of the Howard Dean campaign, seemed a lost cause, with Dean coming out endorsing Hillary Clinton, and introducing her request for support to the organizations million plus members. But, Dean and DFA have earned my respect. They ran a poll and went with the results-- an overwhelming 87% support for Bernie Sanders. Here's the press release the Sanders organization just put out.

Sen. Bernie Sanders Thursday welcomed the endorsement of Democracy for America, which is one of the biggest grassroots organizations in the country. Sanders won an unprecedented 87 percent of the 270,000 votes cast online from Dec. 7 through Tuesday.

"I'm proud to have DFA and its one-million members join our people powered campaign," Sanders said. "DFA's tireless focus on bringing people together through grassroots organizing is the best way we can fight back against the billionaires and oligarchs who have rigged our economy. I also want to congratulate DFA for its principled support for grassroots democracy and for its internal democratic process. It is no secret that the founder of DFA-- my friend and fellow Vermonter former Gov. Howard Dean-- has chosen not to support my candidacy. Yet the leadership of DFA allowed a fair and free vote to take place which we won. That's pretty impressive."

"Bernie Sanders is an unyielding populist progressive who decisively won Democracy for America members' first presidential primary endorsement because of his lifelong commitment to taking on income inequality and the wealthy and powerful interests who are responsible for it," DFA Executive Director Charles Chamberlain said. "Throughout his campaign, Bernie has repeatedly said that the huge problems of income inequality, money in politics, and structural racism that our country must confront are bigger than a single campaign -- they need a political revolution.

"With today's endorsement, DFA members are joining Bernie's 'political revolution' and working to take it both to the White House and up-and-down the ballot, in races coast to coast," Chamberlain said.

Rob Kall has spent his adult life as an awakener and empowerer-- first in the field of biofeedback, inventing products, developing software and a music recording label, MuPsych, within the company he founded in 1978-- Futurehealth, and founding, organizing and running 3 conferences: Winter Brain, on Neurofeedback and consciousness, Optimal Functioning and Positive Psychology (a pioneer in the field of Positive Psychology, first presenting workshops on it in 1985) and Storycon Summit Meeting on the Art Science and Application of Story-- each the first of their kind. Then, when he found the process of raising people's consciousness and empowering them to take more control of their lives one person at a time was too slow, he founded Opednews.com-- which has been the top search result on Google for the terms liberal news and progressive opinion for several years. Rob began his Bottom-up Radio show, broadcast on WNJC 1360 AM to Metro Philly, also available on iTunes, covering the transition of our culture, business and world from predominantly Top-down (hierarchical, centralized, authoritarian, patriarchal, big) to bottom-up (egalitarian, local, interdependent, grassroots, archetypal feminine and small.) Recent long-term projects include a book, Bottom-up-- The Connection Revolution, debillionairizing the planet and the Psychopathy Defense and Optimization Project.
