    Here's the "successor organization" Bernie has been talking about

    From Bernie 2016 - Digital Media Director

    Hi Everyone – the new org will be living here: https://ourrevolution.com/ Bernie's said it since the beginning: he can't do it alone, it's not about him, and change takes place from the bottom up. If this campaign has shown anything, it is that 12 million voters and millions more truly believe in these "radical" progressive ideas that Bernie has been talking about for 30+ years. While the media keeps treating politics like a baseball game, the American people (and especially the community here on Reddit) wants to talk about the real issues. It just so happens that the "radical" solutions to these issues are supported by the majority of Americans but the establishment doesn't like them. We need real change. We didn't win the presidency and no one fought harder for the past 15 months than Bernie Sanders (trust me, as a 28-year-old staffer I had a lot of trouble keeping up with him). But we must move forward and remember what Bernie has said throughout this campaign: real change does not take place without struggle, it does not happen from the top on down, and we need to realize a POLITICAL REVOLUTION to make it happen. It was never just about the presidency, it was about a larger movement – our movement – to transform America. Let's help realize that real change. Let's continue this movement and make a revolution. We need to stick together, unite around a common cause and move forward. It's not gonna be easy, but we have a real chance to do this.

    He was bought and paid for by the crook just like she buys and pays off everyone who stands in her way!

    WestCoastJock saidThat is interesting that they are still trying to trick people into following Bernie even after he sold out to Hillary and is supporting her even though she stands for everything we are against. I will ask at our Vote for Bernie neighborhood club tomorrow if any body else knows about this organization.


    You think Bernie's a sell-out and a trickster, and yet you're still attending his neighborhood club. Doesn't really make sense.

    When Bernie sold out he killed the movement . I don't blame him . Threat of death my mysterious robbery /murder the Clinton MO or well funded retirement . Not much choice there.

    But no one will even mention Jill Stein's name and by ignoring a third party you effectively end any political reform.

    We are meeting today to decide who we will be voting for and it is very likely it will be the Green party. Your point is a good one and I will suggest that we change the name of the club to maybe something likeBernie Sold Us Out neighborhood club.


    You mean, the club decides who its members will be voting for? That doesn't sound very democratic. Can't you just make up your own minds? You do know most Sanders supporters are going to end up voting for Clinton anyway, right?

    Eighty-five percent of Sanders supporters intend to vote for Clinton

    A survey by Pew Research Center shows Sanders supporters aren’t necessarily happy with their general election options, but most would choose Clinton

    Pew Research is wrong as usual so I don't pay any attention to their horribly flawed polls. Most Bernie supporters have no intention of voting for the hapless Hillary ho. Most will end up either voting Green Party or staying home.

    Sounds like Bernie is copying "Obama for America" which morphed into "Organizing for Action" (OFA) after Pres. Obama's reelection. I hope that Bernie's volunteers continue to do important progressive policy work and not simply disappear into oblivion.

    I am so disappointed because Bernie Sanders supports Hillary Clinton for the White House after losing the Democratic primary election.

    He did NOT sell out. He stood by his word and did not run as an independent--to avoid breaking up the party, thus giving the presidency to Trump.

    I voted for Bernie in NY's primary. He had the ability to be one of the greats in my opinion.

    He was huge on advancing mental health care, as well as fighting against major pharmaceutical companies. Having an aunt with dementia, I found his support in brain research admirable.

    Senator Sanders is an amazing man; it still upsets me he isn't the Democrats nominee...

    BUT he has not "sold out". The "Bernie or Bust" movement and other issues are why Bernie had to publicly show support towards Hillary's campaign.

    Face harsh, unpleasant reality, the revolution ended when Bernie threw us all into the path of an oncoming high speed train when he endorsed the Wicked Witch of Wall Street, Hillary rotten Clinton. It is all over folks. The crooked, entrenched, political establishment won the battle. Fuck it!
