Surpise - Republican Focus Group finds Bernie Sanders has highest favorability rating.

Bernie Sanders is seen by voters as being honest, trustworthy, authentic and genuine.  People are not voting on policy but on persona or personality which matters most. To Republican strategist Frank Luntz's surprise the  focus group had a consensus that Bernie Sanders could be the "third party candidate" who could beat Trump, Clinton and others still in the race.  Bernie Sander's integrity is galvanizing the base of both democrats and republicans and national polls indicate that he has the most favorable rating.  

Watch the YouTube interview below.

Holy Moly! - A political revolution and a new "Peoples Party."

Robert Reich speculates on the emergence of a new "Peoples Party."

And Holy Moly -  In Boise,  Bernie Sanders on March 21, 2016 talked about "A Future to Believe In"  and asked us to be involved in a "Political Revolution."   Bernie has listened to women, young people, latinos, African, and Native Americans.  Saying what politicians hardly ever admit -  "First Americans have been lied to, cheated, treaties broken, yet we owe so much to First Americans.  They have taught us respect for environment and that we as people got to live as a part of nature - not destroy nature."  "Climate change is caused by human activity and it is real.  The future is bleak if we do not have the guts to tell the fossil fuel industry that their short term profits are not more important than the future of this planet."

"Everybody here knows that real change has never taken place from the top on down, it has always taken place from the bottom on up!  Please don't expect the status quo as being something that has to go on forever -  We can make change if we have a vision of where we want this country to go.  If we stand together as black and white and latino and asian American and native Americans and gay and straight, as men and women, if we stand together there is nothing we cannot accomplish."  Don't tell Bernie that we can' t solve our current health care, economic, environmental and other big problems.

I intend to post here as well as, or instead of on Facebook.

I have fallen into the practice of responding, sharing and posting my thoughts on Facebook, and sometimes on Google Plus, Twitter, etc.

However, I am not interested in the way Facebook handles my incoming feeds or my outgoing posts.

As time permits, I intend to repost some of my most personal posts from Facebook in the past over to this blog.  I also have numerous notes that I have archived for posting over the past few years that I will try to prepare for posting here.

The next post here will be about my Facebook post today regarding Robert Reich's idea for a new "Peoples Party" and Bernie Sanders promotion of a "political revolution."
