I’m sorry if this isn’t exactly Bernie related but it’s sub related and I desperately wanted to point it out.

I don’t know if you guys have realized how amazing you are. Since we hit the $ 500k mark a few days ago, you guys have raised $ 40k+ and on track for $ 50k by the end of tonight. For reference, this sub raised $ 57k in the entire second quarter.

Let’s freaking go!

To what extent were the 2016 primaries actually rigged against Sanders/ for Hillary?

This question was sparked by the fact that I've recently become aware of some outrage movements (some of which I have been a part of) that are actually based off false premises or ignore the details/nuance in the situations. Because of this I have become increasingly skeptical of any large claims that are easily stoked by anger, because I felt like I was cheated, tricked, and otherwise manipulated to feel a certain way about perceived slights.

Anyway, I had took it as a given from hearsay that the primaries were rigged against Bernie, but some googling gives me sources that say the primaries weren't rigged against him, and instead in some aspects actually favored him.

But then looking at a segment of a Michael Moore video, he says that Bernie had basically swept all the counties for a state, but Hillary somehow still got the votes for it, with similar situations happening across multiple states. The sources that say it wasn't rigged don't discuss this at all so I'm kind of confused.

I know that asking this in a Bernie subreddit will obviously give me biased info and probably a decent amount of low effort hive minded responses, but it's also the place I feel like I can get the most all round info without worrying about secret agendas and the like.

Thanks!

The memory of my mother: why I’m voting for Bernie

My mom didn’t have health insurance. My mom got diagnosed with breast cancer. They caught it early, very early – it was tiny and very treatable – no sentinel node involvement.

My mom made too much money to qualify for government supported health care but not enough money to afford out of pocket health care and she owned her own business so no company healthcare – especially after now having a “pre-existing condition.” My mom chose to forgo treatment and die instead of wracking up hundreds of thousands – if not millions of dollars – in health care debt. By the time she could claim disability which qualified her for government health care the cancer was in her brain, spinal cord, and bones. Her health insurance at that point was pointless other than providing hospice.

To reiterate that statement: my mom chose to die instead of going into debt to treat her breast cancer.

She died thinking it was her only option. She was an extraordinary woman. Left behind four kids, many friends and even some animals that loved her. She should and would still be here if our health care system wasn't so fucked.

So the next time you try and rationale that health care isn’t a human right – please look up my mom’s obituary and remember her choice was crippling debt or death from an otherwise treatable condition.
