What Do We Do Now That the DNC Rigged & Stole the Primary. That's the big question. I comment on this then include video's from Glen Ford, Kshama Sawant, Jill Stein and Nina Turner.

I think all of them and I agree that the corporations have two parties and we, the 99%, the middle class, the workers in America need one-- a party for the 99%.

Here are some of the questions and considerations:

There are 14 million Bernie supporters, yuuge mailing and donor lists that Bernie has not yet and may not ever share with Hillary or the DNC-- I hope he doesn't. What happens next.

The purportedly progressive organizations are all clamoring for your support and money. Some are supporting Hillary. Some Bernie supporters are saying we have to vote Hillary to prevent the boogeyman-- I mean Trump.

During the four days I spent in Philly, of the six days of the DNC conventions and its pre-convention events, 99% of the Bernie supporters said they'd be voting Green, for Jill Stein, or writing in Bernie's name, or staying home.

Occupy 2.0?

Bernie's revolution has given us incredible momentum. While I was covering the protests at the DNC and in Center City Philly, at Occupy DNC, it felt a real lot like Occupy (I covered six different Occupy locales.) It is very possible that we can turn Bernie's revolution into the next metamorphic stage after Occupy. Call it Occupy 2.0? Some are calling it Democracy Spring. We have built something. We must hold on to and maintain the momentum. Bernie ALWAYS said, at every event, that change happens from the bottom up. We should not expect Bernie to do the work for the next stage. He did an incredible, amazing, yuuuge job getting us this far. We must continue his historic project and build upon it. That means starting now and also planning to continue after the November vote, no matter what happens.

What's Bernie Doing:

There's talk about him starting Our Revolution, at, but so far it simply asks for your email and zipcode and then offers you an option to donate. I made a small donation and it does not take you to anywhere else. I'll wait to see if I get anything in the email. There's also talk of a Bernie Sanders Institute which will train activists. We'll see. Meanwhile, word is that he will return to the senate as an independent.

What Bernie Accomplished

I wrote this article describing why I think his changes to the DNC platform made a difference:
