THE STRUGGLE CONTINUES &SIMPLY AMAZING: Bernie Sanders FANTASTIC Rally in Washington, DC. Thank You Bernie 8&9JUN16

And one day we must ask the question, "Why are there forty million poor people in America?" And when you begin to ask that question, you are raising questions about the economic system, about a broader distribution of wealth. When you ask that question, you begin to question the capitalistic economy. 

- Martin Luther King Jr.

NOW that Hillary Clinton is the presumptive Democratic presidential nominee we all look to the convention and the final draft of the party's campaign platform. Bernie Sanders' campaign must have a major role in determining the policies of the party to obtain the unity the DNC will be achieved. One major point of contention is debbie wasserman-schultz. Her "leadership" of the DNC has favored the 1%, the corporate, bank-financial cabal and the military-industrial comlex, the very people and organizations who have controlled the politics of this country no matter the party in power, to the detriment of the poor, working class and middle class. The 99% is still struggling to recover from the 2008 recession caused by the greed of the 1%. The DNC must present a presidential platform that represents the needs of the 99%, and Hillary Clinton MUST endorse the platform and MUST deliver when she is elected president on 8 NOV 16. This from BERNIE 
The struggle continues 8JUN16
When we began this campaign a little over a year ago we were considered to be a fringe campaign. But over the last year, I think that has changed just a little bit.
As of last night, we have won 22 state primaries and caucuses with more than 11 million votes.
What we understand, and what every one of us has always understood, is that real change never occurs from the top on down, always from the bottom on up.
That is the history of America. Our fight is to transform our country and to understand that we are in this together. That is what OUR movement is about.
The struggle continues. We are going to fight for every vote in Tuesday'sprimary in Washington, DC, and then we will bring our political revolution to the Democratic convention in Philadelphia.
I am pretty good at arithmetic, and I know that the fight in front of us is a very, very steep fight, but we will continue to fight for every vote and every delegate we can get.
But you know that what we are doing is about more than Bernie Sanders. It is all of us together. It is what this movement is about. It is millions of people from coast to coast standing up and looking around them and knowing that we can do much, much better as a nation.
That whether Wall Street likes it, whether corporate America likes it, whether wealthy campaign contributors like it, whether the corporate media likes it, we together know what our job is. And that is to bring the American people together to create a government that works for us, not the 1 percent.
Our fight is to transform our country and to understand that we are in this together. To understand that all of what we believe is what the majority of the American people believe. And to understand that the struggle continues.
Thank you all. The struggle continues.
In solidarity,
