H.A. Goodman is a national treasure:

I recently had the great pleasure of appearing on the Benjamin Dixon Show, where I explained that Bernie Sanders could easily win a landslide victory in 2016. If you enjoyed my latest article on the subject, just watch my discussion with Benjamin Dixon.

Benjamin Dixon is becoming a national presence, and I thank him for giving me the opportunity to explain why my conscience will only allow me to vote for Bernie Sanders, and not Donald Trump or Clinton.

Also, although I didn’t mention this alternate scenario, the FBI might give Bernie Sanders a landslide victory in 2016. Not many people understand the severity of hackers in other countries attempting to hack into a Secretary of State’s private server (a server that Wired stated was a “Security Fail”), and along with the man who set up Clinton’s server pleading the Fifth, we’re nowhere near an ending to this saga. It could easily derail Clinton’s campaign.

I don’t write for Facebook likes, but that Huffington Post article is currently at 726,000 Facebook likes and on its way to 1 million.

Remember, we’re only talking about an article on Bernie Sanders, not a music video. Its popularity is a testament to an immense undercurrent of nationwide support ignored by media and pundits. Only Bernie Sanders could catapult an article on politics to almost 1 million Facebook likes.

On June 29, 2015, Clinton still enjoyed an enormous 58.4% advantage, while Sanders had surged to a whopping 15.9%. On that day, I wrote a piece titled Why Bernie Sanders Will Become the Democratic Nominee and Defeat Any Republican in 2016. The article quickly surged to 157,000 Facebook likes.

On July 6, 2015, Clinton still had a gigantic 57.8% advantage, while Sanders had increased only to 16.8%. Two days later, I wrote a piece in The Hill titled Sanders’s integrity and honesty worth more than Clinton’s billions. It garnered 114,000 Facebook Likes.

No, I don’t write for Facebook Likes, and some of my better writing hasn’t even been noticed by readers. One of my best articles is titled Dick Cheney’s 1994 Gulf War Interview Proves Why Jeb Bush Can’t Blame Obama or Intelligence Failures that earned only 103 likes and one comment. The article did result, however, in a Ring of Fire appearance explaining how Dick Cheney destabilized the Middle East.

This “Facebook likes” methodology is highly compelling, but I’m afraid I’m going to need more data from college straw polls before I’ll be fully convinced.

To go higher on the web publishing food chain, get a load of this #Slatepitch. You might be tempted to click and see if the article is better than its transparently idiotic and offensive headline. Trust me: it’s not.
