Lately there have been too many posts here and everywhere Bernie supporters gather that simply repost Tweets or suggest various ideas about starting a new social media campaign or holding a demonstration. As a longtime organizer these posts are frustrating to me, because the campaign has a sound strategy that is based on actually going out and talking face to face (or phoning) individual voters, and it is this strategy that will build the movement we need to win. In today's Washington Post, another experienced voice made this point as sharply as possible, although the author was campaigning for progressive issues in general, not specifically the Sanders campaign. I hope this piece will encourage those who are shy or just inexperienced to go get the training and go talk to live humans where they live.

I tried once and I will try again

With all respect to Mr. Sanders, I do not see him as a viable presidential candidate, and one of the main reasons being his position on the minimum wage. I do not understand the benefits of it, and currently almost exclusively know the negatives, and in a respectful to all manner, I would love to hear thoughts on why a fifteen dollar minimum wage would work.

For the mods: I am not only disagreeing here, just trying to gain a more nuanced and well rounded perspective on the issue.
