My mom and I disagree on politics, help me form a strong argument against hers:

She believes that cutting student loans/student loan interest by taxing corporate america/wall street will harm the average citizen more than it will help them. She believes this because in the past corporations have tended to offset losses like new taxes by paying their workers less thus punishing the workforce.

Is there any truth to this?

She also believes that other countries that have used socialism have failed and thus we are bound to fail with more socialist programs are added. While I understand that Sanders is a Democratic-socialist, it’s hard to find a good counter argument besides arguing that the other countries had bad leaders and that they weren’t democratic-socialist countries. Specifically she has named Russia as a socialist country. From what I recall they were a communist country first however, and they aren’t anywhere near a true Democratic nation.

I just need help making a good argument to convince my mother that she should be open to changes like this. She believes that if the Democrats brought in someone more conservative that they would have the best chance of winning the upcoming election. I tend to think that Trump is doomed in the reelection, but if the Democrats don’t endorse Sanders that they’ll give Trump a better shot at winning by splitting the democratic vote.

Thanks for any advice, suggestions, or comments,

You know that Key & Peele “angry Obama” skit? If Gravel qualifies for the next debate, he will be Key to Bernie’s Peele — especially against Biden. This helps Bernie, which is the purpose of this sub.

Every Gravel post gets taken down, so I'll try posting with no link. Gravel needs fewer than 7k unique donors by Tuesday to reach the 65k requirement for the upcoming debate.

Why are people against Bernie?

Many of his positions are being endorsed by the other candidates. So why are average Americans so against him? He is pushing for the middle class, and yet I see so many middle class voters believing the billionaire narrative about him.

Truly would love to hear and understand why you or someone you know is against/dislikes Bernie. Thank you.

Who we need to fight against

OK, judging by the title of this reddit and many of the posts, the vast majority of the people here support Bernie Sanders winning his presidential bid in 2020. But here’s the real question: who do we need to fight against hardest for him to win. The answer is not the Republicans, it is the Democrats.

The group able to do the most damage to him at the current time is the Democratic national committee and their methods for picking a nominee. Currently, I am confident that if Bernie Sanders were to go against Donald Trump in the general election, Bernie Sanders would win. But the hardest part now, is now the primary. The Democratic Party is running over 20 candidates as of now. The number may go up. As the situation happens now, I believe that no candidate will gain a majority of the delegates during the primary; I think it’ll fall down to maybe four or five who will get a substantial amount of delegates. But, if no candidate gets a majority of the delegates, the superdelegates get to choose who the nominee is. And they’re sure as hell not choosing Bernie Sanders. So as the situation stands now, the greatest threat to progressivism is not Donald Trump. It’s Joe Biden. Joe Biden, the almost identical copy of Donald Trump, but with a D next to his name.

Our main fights against Joe Biden. Now what are some ways we can go over fighting him? His voting record is certainly a method for this. Perhaps Mike Gravel can do some damage to him on the debate stage.

But all in all, what are your thoughts?

I love feelthebern.org. It is very helpful in getting useful information about Bernie out. Do you guys know any other useful website to support arguments for Bernie and counter arguments against Bernie? In particular, to debunk baseless smears and prove how the DNC actively tilled the field in Clinton’s favor.
