Thousands turn out in Santa Cruz to see and hear Bernie Sanders! Many could not get in to see Bernie, but prior to speaking inside the auditorium he spoke to the overflow large crowd outside!

Bernie spoke of many things, including The Political Revolution! Bernie was introduced by the Mayor of Watsonville Felipe Hernandez. Bernie started by thanking Santa Cruz and welcoming Santa Cruz to the Political Revolution! He spoke of many things including, How 90% of Americans, both democrats and republicans, are dissatisfied with the system and how they feel that there vote does not count! About open primaries! Healthcare and woman's rights! Equal pay for woman! The broken criminal system! Not building jail, but building universities! Taking the military out of local police departments, and how the police need to be accountable if they shoot someone and that shooting someone should be a last resort! That local police departments need to reflect the diversity of the community! He spoke of taking a new look at the current drug policies! Marijuana and being for the lagalatio0n of it, while saying there are to many overdosing on heavier drugs! He spoke re: mental health and the need to change the way it doesn't work! He also spoke of (something I am also very concerned with) The Hispanics and workers in the fields and (closest to my heart) the Native Americans and there treatment! I can not list everything, but if you would like to hear all of his speech in Santa Cruz, you can go to https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zggxh4uhXiQ on YouTube to here his whole speech! Thank you Bernie Sanders!

It was a shopper's extravaganza that brought what can only be described as sports arena/rock show merchandisers from all over the US who follow these things like camp whores. Some are slick.

One guy said his buttons were "Limited Edition" and "Official"... at least he LOOKED official.

Another was hawking t-shirts as "Made in USA, showing the label.

I said "Saipan, right?"

He blank stared me and walked off.

It all hearkens back to something Frank Zappa said in an interview in the 60s when asked if he thought the 'hippies' had caused any change in US society. His response was: "When you see a shirt for sale in a shop using the word 'psychedelic' you KNOW the hippies have had an effect on American society."

Bernie has changed American Society. Socialism sells. Which IS the antithesis of what Socialism is.

My point being is there is no Socialism in the US.

...and no, Libraries are NOT socialist. Government management of public services is NOT socialism.

Socialism is a worldview.

Socialism is defined below ... Note what Bernie's idol Eugene Debs puts first. Bernie doesn't believe that. No politician believes that. Americans don't believe it either despite the fact they pay LIP SERVICE to it, as the rich get richer, the poor get poorer, and EVEN IF YOU MANAGED TO ELECT BERNIE, the bombs would not only keep falling, but using Obama as a measure, Bernie the not-a-socialist would drop even MORE bombs.

Because if you want jobs and 'prosperity' the only thing America manufactures of any major monetary value today is ... Bombs. And there are no T-shirts manufactured in the US anymore except for private labelled stuff SOMETIMES, like American Apparel, who have sweatshops in LA that meet US government sweatshop standards. Sometimes. To wit: https://duckduckgo.com/?t=lm&q=american+apparel+labor+dispute
