I've been so upset. I could barely watch the Democrat's convention because watching Sanders speak in favor of Hillary was like getting slapped in the face over and over and over. When my mother called, during the speech, to talk about how great it was, I was fuming so bad I threw my phone into the wall and broke it. I had to call my mother on my roommate's phone to ask her if she could buy me another one.
Then came Our Revolution--the next version of Sander's movement. It was supposed to be this fantastically great thing where the original Sanders supporters (me!) would all keep working to defeat people like Hillary Clinton, take back our government, smash the banks and the billionaires, and basically overturn capitalism.
When it started? On day one? Sander's old campaign manger Jeff Weaver was running it. He set it up to accept all this dark money and stuff--just business as usual. It's like once Sanders betrayed us all by endorsing Hillary now everybody is free to do it. So half the staff walked out.
I had been planning on getting a job blogging for Our Revolution--any digital movement is going to need insightful, experienced bloggers, and I just knew that I would be in the top-tier (I bet Huffington Post's H.A. Goodman was really disappointed too--but he has a job). Well, when all the WEB-SAVVY people walked out, there went any HOPE of a blogging job.
I had even borrowed money from my roommate recently thinking I'd be able to pay her back.
I sent a bunch of that money to Tim Cannova in Florida so he could BEAT Debbie Wasserman Schultz. She's the ex-head of the DNC who robbed Sanders by rigging the election. It was in ALL THE EMAILS and no one did ANYTHING. I was sure she'd be kicked out--but last night . . . SHE GOT RE-ELECTED TO BE THE DEMOCRAT NOMINEE!!
HOW COULD THAT EVEN BE POSSIBLE WITHOUT CHEATING? HOW COULD ANY DEMOCRAT VOTE FOR SUCH AN OBVIOUSLY CORRUPT PERSON? HOW!! HOW!!??
I GUESS IF YOU'RE VOTING FOR CLINTON, YOU ALREADY ANSWERED THAT QUESTION.
I want to go work for Jill Stein--but I don't know if she needs bloggers or social media curators. Does anyone out there know? I'd only need a starter salary (maybe 40k per year? Could I get that?).
