After excusing Clinton for e-mail issue, #feelthebern is over

To The Daily Sun,

During the Democratic/socialist debate, Bernie Sanders made the following statement in regards to Hillary Clinton's e-mails: "Let me say something that may not be great politics. But I think the secretary is right, and that is that the American people are sick and tired of hearing about your damn e-mails."

With this statement, the socialist excused Hillary Clinton for 1. violating State Department policy on private e-mail use; 2. disposing of public records without authority; 3. misappropriating classified information; and 3. covering up possible misconduct and conflicts of interest.

With this statement, the socialist ended his campaign. There was only one path for the socialist to win the nomination. Bernie had to convince the Democratic Party that Hillary Clinton is too plagued in scandals to win the general election and he failed to do that.

It is ironic that the socialist excuses Hillary Clinton and her scandalous ways. After all, the e-mail scandal is similar to the type of corruption Sanders promises to fight on Wall Street. Hillary raked in foreign cash for her family foundation while conducting the countries business. There are even reports Clinton allowed Russia to gain control of a huge chunk of America's uranium deposits in return for a donation to her foundation.

#feelthebern is over. Hillary Clinton will be the Democratic Party nominee and as a nation we will be bombarded with more class envy and division as Hillary Clinton is another student of Saul Alinsky and his "Rules for Radicals", just as Barack Obama is.

Hillary will attempt to convince women of the mirage that is "equal pay for equal work", as she takes in $500,000 a speech. Hillary will drone on about "women's rights are human rights", as the Clinton foundation takes massive "donations" from counties that oppress women. Hillary will attempt to be a voice for the LGBT community, all the while the Clinton foundation takes large donations from governments who kill gay people or those suspected of being gay.

In true Clinton fashion, Hillary will do or say anything to be elected president. I pray that the good people of the greatest nation on earth do not fall for it like they did with Barack Obama.
