I ENDORSE BERNIE SANDERS.
I have lived through the McCarthy years, through the 60's, the Cuban Missile Crisis, through the assassinations, through the Nixon years, Watergate, Viet Nam; through Iran Contra; through the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan. I could list all the 'brush fire wars', the scandals, the 'Bring it ons' but I have never seen anything so obstructionist in Congress, so rude and violent as the Republican candidates. I cannot tolerate the fluctuations of what Hillary says she 'stands for' depending on the trend of the day, or what Bernie says.
Sanders is an honest man; not bought by corporations. He has a life long record of standing up for The People. If we have a chance at a future for our children and theirs, then Bernie is the man we need.
We must save ourselves from our own fears, intolerance, and work once again as a nation, not as red or blue states, but as Americans recognizing that at one time we were immigrants unless we are of Native American descent. And in line with that, we must act together to protect the indigenous culture from further abuse and incursion.
We are THE FORCE if we use it well, and to do that, we must use it for all of us regardless of sex, color, origins, or faith.
SPREAD THE BERN: OUR FUTURE IS AT STAKE.

Rhea and Jordan Devereaux had it all: undying devotion, a tender love, and a grand passion. And then the Vietnam War separated them. Follow the course of their love across time and space. Journey with them through the steaming jungle; dance with the Mardi Gras revelers while revolution unseats Louis XVI and protestors on the Washington Mall scream, Hell, NO. We won't Go. Sail with Laffite's pirates into Devil's Isle and rejoice as an unconditional and timeless love emerges victorious.
