THINGS ARE GETTING BAD IN PHILADELPHIA
We’ve been writing for months about both major political parties and their “base problems.” Originally, we believed both “Republicans” and Democrats would face similar issues with their core constituencies during the 2016 election – but it’s looking increasingly as though the Democrats are the ones with the real problem.
Take U.S. Senator Bernie Sanders of Vermont – the independent socialist who gave Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton a run for her money this year.
(Hell … Sanders probably would have won the nomination had Clinton not been getting all sorts of secret help from supposedly “impartial” party leaders).
Sanders – a “progressive” hero – took the stage in Philadelphia this week to address California Democratic delegates.

That’s some deep-seated rage ..
How will the government-media-hollywood complex respond to this, we wonder?
UPDATE: Like this, apparently …
