Tuesday March 8th was an important day. I mentioned how crucial it may be for the future of the Democratic Party nominee. It would either mark a True surge for the Sanders’ campaign or it would most likely be the start of his demise. In the end Michigan was not a tremendous amount of delegates and it wasn’t so lopsided that it helped him in the total delegate count. What it did do was 3 things. First, it showed in a state that is more representative of how most democrats feel. It is a state that has a wide diversity and shows a lot of different views and opinions. Second was that it would show some momentum for either of them that might propel them into the Big day March 15th might be. On March 15th we will have 792 delegates assigned. That is about 50% amount of the delegates already declared. This means a strong performance can make a big difference. Third thing is that Bernie Sanders did what some have considered the biggest upset in a state in Primary history. He was as much as over 20% down to Hilary in some polls for Michigan. He also had, even in my own opinion, a weak debate performance right before. This was a monumental day if you are a Bernie Sanders supporter. It is by NO means over. He still has a LOT of work left to do to make up the lead she has from the South states. It also means it is not over in the sense he has a legitimate chance of getting the nomination. A guy who was behind by over 60% last year at this time has a chance at being the next President of the United States. A guy who stands for REAL progressives and REAL liberals, and less of the “defeatist Democrats” we are used to dealing with. America is starting to Feel the Bern, whether the Establishment likes it or not.
First I would like to apologize for my absence over the last couple weeks. I had a work trip I had to attend. I would also say I am very proud of my fellow people of Minnesota for going out and supporting Bernie Sanders and lead him to a big victory in a crucial state like our own. I was happy to see that even though I was unable to participate that others I have contact to were willing and able to go and be active members in the political system. We owe it to ourselves and each other, let alone the future generations to follow. We must stand up for our beliefs and help guide our country to be one that we are proud to be a part of.
