Electing President Bernie Sanders: Patience and Time

I support Bernie Sanders for President.
On Facebook, a few misguided souls, claiming to be Hillary Clinton supporters, have attacked some of my friends and me.
As FDR said of the one percenters, whom he called "economic royalists, we "welcome their hatred."
I attended a discussion meeting at our St. Johns County, Florida Democratic Executive Committee tonight (President's Day, February 15, 2016) with some 102 people -- standing room only -- most of us were for Berne Sanders, at an enlightening forum chaired by former CNN International correspondent, Brian James Nelson our friend and neighbor here, interviewing two able Democratic women making the case for their candidates: Shirley Rawls for Secretary Clinton and Carolyn Wolfe for Senator Sanders.
We Florida Democrats are well-motivated, and we are working together, resolving differences in Presidential and Senate primaries.
The forces of We, the People are behind Senator Sanders and we are winning.
I reckon that in a few months those few angry putative Hillary Clinton people on FB will change their tune.
As General Kutuzov advised in Tolstoy's "War and Peace": "patience and time."
