Re: “Sanders' rebellion is alive

I helped sponsor Mr. Hightower to speak to the Democrats in Tom Green County, TX prior to the 2012 election - I'm a huge fan, and I think he's exactly right. Bernie 'spoke' to all of us when he belabored the system for being corrupt and rigged for the rich. I would have voted for him without reservation. Now we have to avoid a Trump presidency and there is no way I'm going to split the vote. What would our world be like if the new President was favored by Vladimir Putin, his puppet master Aleksandr Dugin and owes millions to the Chinese banking system.

I strongly agree with NewTom that Bernie has had a positive influence on the Democratic platform and I would remind other readers that this country has always been something of a socialist democracy. We all pay for common services and infrastructure...as long as some anti-tax, debt-addled sequestering fool doesn't shut the government down again (are you listening, Ted Cruz?)

Re: “Sanders' rebellion is alive

That's a reassuring thought. He strongly influenced the platform's Hopefully we'll get a election results that will put the government back to work rather than obstructing every good idea

Re: “ColoradoCare, Donald Trump, Palmer Park improvements, and more

Kyle, one other thought after I posted my last ...again, long response, sorry about that.

Tulsi Gabbard, whom I love, has strong native Samoan blood lines.

There are other Native people running down ballot.

Let's support them.

They had it right, it was the white man, wacicu that screwed things up. Let's put our government back in their hands.

Don't give up on being a liberal or progressive, we need folks like you to help right the ship..so to speak.

Just a though my friend. :)

Re: “ColoradoCare, Donald Trump, Palmer Park improvements, and more

KyleJs,

I can totally relate to what you are saying. I don't think there was anything you wrote that I would disagree with.

I was a "berner" for the reasons you wrote.

I agree with the use of taxes, our means of giving back and what I really liked is you didn't seem to have an issue with using taxes to help lift Americans out of poverty, to help give all Americans good health care. I had read that the dental health of middle class Americans is equivalent to third world nations. If someone questions that, I will look that up to get some references.

Those uses are what seems to give conservatives so much heart burn. Calling it a "nanny state', or takers vs. makers.

I would love to see less money going to the military, I think we spend more than enough. Stop paying for regime changes and nation building and into the hands of middle class Americans.

I think we are in agreement.

I don't love Hillary, neither do I dislike her. :) I have a lot of issues with Hillary. I do dislike Trump.

Like it or not, one of those two will be leading this nation for at least the next 4 years. Trump frightens me much more than Hillary.

Lesser of two evils....sure.

It would be nice to change our system to where 3rd or more party candidates would have a real chance of a real run in this country. But we are still in a place where 3rd or more party candidates will give the election to either the Republican or Democratic candidate. That's the problem with voting for one of them.

I don't think Dr. Stein is really qualified to run a country like this, I like what she says, but some I think is simply impractical at this point in time.

I will never vote for a libertarian, as in my opinion, they don't like "community". They want to be left alone to take of themselves and the rest of us to fend for ourselves. Obviously, from my last post, that is a problem for me. I believe in community.

I don't mind calling myself a liberal or progressive. I am an independent as far a political parties go, being a Vermonter, it is implicit to be an Independent as we don't affiliate to a party, because they don't ask.

The other reason I would vote for Hillary, is we still have the Bern! He is not going anywhere and is going to be very involved now with transforming the Democratic party. He has already made a huge difference in the platform and with some of Hillary's positions. She has moved a bit to the left on some issues thanks to the Berne.

To move this country more to where you would like to see it go, support the Revolution, support candidates like Tulsi Gabbard and other more progressive folks down ballot and it will help to continue to move Hillary to the left, ones who will push back on her more hawkish tendencies and less into building bombs and nations

Who knows what we would get with Trump. It scares the crap out of me and makes me feel good I am less than two hours from Canada. Just in case.

I think you rock, Kyle.

Stay involved, work with the revolution, the revolution needs you and I believe even with Hillary in the white house, we can move in the direction you and I would like to go. I don't think we have that hope with Trump.

Pilamaya Yelo my friend....Mitakue Oyasin.

Re: “10-year-old is seizure-free after one year of cannabis oil

I am unable to post this in the Success Stories for whatever reason, so I posted here. I was diagnosed with prostate cancer on October 18, 2013. I was advised by my doctor that my only options were to have radiation seeds implanted in my prostate or receive regular external beam radiation. I declined. I knew there had to be other options.
I scoured the Internet and discovered a wealth of information about cannabis oil curing cancer. I was able to obtain some medical marijuana Dr. Mike Williams (Cannabis Oil Treatment) from it and consumed the recommended dosage by mid January.
On January 26th I had a cancer reassessment which consisted of an MRI with a state of the art Tesla 3 MRI machine. Results – NO SIGN OF CANCER! CANCER FREE!
One of the things that helped me while going through all this was reading the testimonials and the success stories of those who have used the oil and were cured And with good food diet. Now that this wonderful oil has cured me, I feel I need to let others know as well. Please feel free to contact me, ask anything should you like more information or directly contact Dr. mike Williams at: cannabisoiltreatment@hotmailcom or Cannabisoiltreatment@gmail.com were i purchased from. Thank you, Jay Lynn Rucker

Re: “10-year-old is seizure-free after one year of cannabis oil

OMG! I never knew CANNABIS OIL could cure cancer, i thought it was only meant to eliminate leukaemia and Illinois paralyses, until 2 months ago, When i got a bottle of the oil, I bought them pretty expensive though, but had no option and didn't want to loose my life just because of money..It turned out to be what i was looking for over 17 months, a week after buying the CANNABIS OIL it was like a reborn for me. Even my doctors were so amazed by its potency. I seriously advise that you also get yours, I am a living testimony of the wonder works of the cannabis oil and avoid going through life risking surgerys. its 100% potent i swear..
I got mine through "Cannabisoiltreatment@hotmail.com" . Godbless you all and i wish you a quck recovery//
