Bernie Sanders, one of two Democrat contenders for the next President of the United States of America, is officially on the Delaware Primary ballot. While Delaware only awards 16 delegates, every single one counts. Hillary Clinton took a very big lead yesterday on “Super Tuesday”, but as some have said, she won in states where she was expected to win. It is now the 2nd quarter in this high-stakes political presidential primary season, and anything could happen. Donald Trump does appear to be on the fast track towards a Republican nomination with Ted Cruz and Marco Rubio trailing behind in the primaries. Delaware’s presidential primary is April 26th.
I am hereby endorsing Bernie Sanders as the Democrat candidate for the 45th President of the United States of America. I do not support Hillary Clinton as I believe she is far too embedded in the Educational-Industrial-Military Complex and we would see more of the same with education under a Hillary presidency. Donald Trump as President just scares the hell out of me.
A gentleman by the name of Floyd McDowell is a huge Bernie Sanders fan. He wants him on the primary ballot so all registered Democrats in Delaware have the opportunity to vote for him should they choose. Here is the message from Mr. McDowell:
This message is a request for the assistance of all who are registered to vote as Democrats in the Delaware 2016 primary and general elections. As one helping to obtain the needed signatures from these registered Democrats to ensure that Senator Bernie Sanders is on our 2016 primary election ballot in our state. It would be a national shame for him or any other national candidate for President not to be on our Delaware ballot.
Signing a petition merely means the person signing agrees that Senator Sanders should be on our 2016 Delaware ballot. Here’s what we ask of registered Democrats receiving this message. If you or others contact me at (302) 832-2799 or via email at email@example.com and ask for a petition sheet (or more), I will quickly mail one or more to you if you give me your name and postal address. Each petition sheet has space for ten signatures. I will include a stamped envelope addressed to me so the sheets can be returned. Even if you only give your signature and those of family members and friends, this will help our signature count. I will need to receive these mailed signatures by Friday, January 15th so I can get them to Dr. Philip Pollner of Newark who is leading this important project. He will then get all of these signatures notarized as required.
If anyone simply asked me to sign and get signatures to make sure candidates Hillary Clinton and Martin O’Malley were on our Delaware 2016 ballot, I would gladly help as our Delaware citizens need to have all national candidates for President on our state’s ballot as they decide who they want as our nation’s leader in the forthcoming election. One of the key reasons I fought in WWII and the Korean Conflict as a young enlisted man and officer, along with millions of others.
For those who have requested petition sheets to obtain signatures, I thank you on behalf of our movement to do what is right and just in this important civic responsibility area of our collective lives.
Editor’s Note: This is not an official endorsement for Bernie Sanders. This is just an attempt to get him on the primary ballot. This blog has not officially endorsed their candidate for United States of America President at this point in time.
