Why Surprising Numbers of Republicans Vote for Bernie Sanders? Social Security, free college, breaking up the big banks, aren’t “progressive” policies, they’re just common sense, and 60 years ago they would have put Bernie Sanders smack dab in the mainstream of my father’s Republican Party.

Americans, do you really need the electoral college?

Hi there, Romanian here. The whole caucus-process is beyond my reasoning and seems to be extremely inefficient and unfair. Also, the whole "race to 271" seems extremely un-democratic to me, as an example 49% of Florida's voters could've stayed at home because their votes didn't matter at all in the end.

How about – Only primaries. – No threshold for delegates. – More votes, more delegates. – No exact number of delegates needed for the nom, just having the most. – The candidate with the most votes during the election wins.

I really respect the US and we admire your economy, but elections just aren't democratic imo.

Next time when people knock free college for all in favor of a system ‘where the rich pay more’, tell them this

At this time I would like to make argue for free college for all, and why it's better than having a system where richer families pay more (they actually would).

Income verification is a costly and time consuming process, for both the school and the recipients. I got some amazing financial aid, but every year we have to do a time of paperwork, and verifications, even into the school year. A lot of people don't get their financial aid until way after class registration begins, and so people who already have the money get first picks for classes. Finally, there are a lot of parents who are just assholes. There are many cases where people get kicked out cut off at age 18, especially among LGBTQ people.

There are also cases of families who may get some misconceptions about how much they would have to pay. That's what happened to me. It wasn't until I made some details plans about how I would pay for college that I applied, and found out that it really wasn't going to be anywhere as near as how much I thought it would be. I almost didn't apply for college at all, just because it was really unclear about how much I would have to end up paying, maybe even impossible without applying first. There will be many families who won't apply first.

Another issue is that colleges are jacking up prices across the country. Some of these costs come from resort style landscaping, logo designs from time design firms, PR firms (UC Davis paid 6 figures for damage control regarding the paper spray incident), and probably a lot of other things students may not want to pay for, especially for staying in college debt until your 50s like Barack and Michelle Obama did. But there's little collective forces to oppose these adminstristrations' decisions. Right now just the people attending or about to attend school. Once they graduate, everything's already paid for, and now they're just focusing on dealing with the debt. If the money is coming primarily from all the tax payers, there's much more leverage and tools to audit and negotiate with university spending.

The Rich not paying more for college in free college or all is a myth. They will pay more, to the IRS. We don't need to waste money on a separate income verification and distribution system at every single school. We already have a refined and robust system, the IRS.

Free college for all is not just something that we should pay for to 'invest in our kids'. It's the most economically efficient approach to college.

Free Bernie T-shirts for college students in select states!

Donate and support us on Patreon! https://www.patreon.com/bePatron?c=1785147

It's raining T-shirts for the youth vote! Any full-time college student age 25 or under may be eligible to receive free Bernie apparel. Winners must be currently attending school in person in one of the key states of Iowa, New Hampshire, Nevada, South Carolina, California, or Texas. The first 3 qualifying responses win the goods!

Rules and details:

  • Choose between the classic blue or white Bernie design.

  • You, yourself, have to be the student who will be wearing the shirt. You can't win one on behalf of a friend or family member.

  • Pledge to wear the shirt as much as practical while at school, when out doing errands, etc.

  • Proof of Bernie support is required. A donation flair here at Reddit is acceptable. Also acceptable is a phonebank flair or most other types of volunteering flairs. (If you don't have a phonebank flair, go get one and earn Bernie bucks at the same time!)

  • Other forms of Bernie support may also be acceptable, e.g. a photo of yourself at a Bernie rally or at a college Bernie club which matches a driver's license photo. (Cover any personal information, like your driver's license ID number and address, and send a photo to me privately, not publicly.)

  • Entries like, "I really like Bernie but don't have any money, can I still get one?" will not be accepted. I want these shirts to go to the most enthusiastic Bernie supporters. Go get a phonebank flair or do one of the countless other volunteer opportunities.

  • I reserve the right to check your Reddit post history and/or make judgment calls. Too many people are interested in free Bernie stuff, and I don't want it to end up in the hands of internet randos or trolls.

Respond to this thread, and I will privately contact the 3 winners for information about your shirt size, address, etc. Please be patient — I can only check this thread a couple times today. First come, first served!
