Obviously I don't expect exact numbers but is there any info about donations vs store purchases?

I want to give money to the campaign, after last nights debate, but unsure if I should purchase a shirt I want or donate. Can't do both.

Is there a big difference between the two?

(Also side note: Does the bernie hat fit small on anyone else?)

Just wanna note the IMMENSE difference in online presence for Bern,just on Reddit.

Warren's most populous reddit? Has around 27,000 members. Just this reddit for Bernard? Over 300, 000 members, I think. He has such a massive advantage, man. I'm hoping his ground game crushes Warren and Biden and everyone else, right to the nomination on the first DNC ballot.

IMO: the difference between democratic socialism and “human-centered capitalism”

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

Bernie Sanders is a left-wing populist, someone who isn't afraid to call out the ruling class. Listen to him, it's always the rhetoric of "we" rather than "I," and he openly talks about a "political revolution." His policies may be social democratic, but when asked if he is a capitalist in an interview, he flatly says "no, I'm a democratic socialist." I feel like if we develop a strong enough movement over the years, he would support actual socialism. He also doesn't frame politics as being about Big Men With Solutions. He genuinely wants masses of ordinary people like us to join him in fighting for economic, social, political rights. He embraces class conflict and struggle.

On other hand, I never hear Yang call out ruling class in militant terms. Yeah, he talks about "getting big money out of politics," but his solution isn't actually developing a movement to challenge elite power. He has a plan for "Democracy Dollars," i.e. just giving a 100 bucks to each voter to donate to campaigns. But this isn't systemic change, it's not about changing power relations at a structural level. And that's my whole problem with Yang. He basically is an advocate of technocracy, i.e. where a group of smart policymakers change the system from within, rather than all of us rising in a mass movement. His UBI proposal also appeals to libertarians, and he wants everyone to come to the middle. Yang is trying to keep all us proles from revolting against the system when automation hits.

TLDR; Bernie is for left-wing people power, Yang is a center-left technocrat who sees politics in a more top-down way

Bernie laying out the difference between he & Trump when it comes to criticizing the media

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

"My criticism of the corporate media is not that it is 'fake news," that it lies all the time or tries to destroy people-which is what Trump believes. My critique is that the corporate media pays relatively little attention to the most important issues facing the working people of our country and increasingly treats politics as if they were entertainment or a football game."

The difference between polling the general public and those who will actually participate in the primary

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

We shouldn't allow ourselves to get discouraged by polling one bit. Polling already has some issues, but what's more is that they poll the general public, usually people that identify as democrats. These people have average interest in politics. But, the people that actually turn out to vote in the primaries are those people that are very interested in politics.

In 2016, there were an estimated 61 million registered democrats in the USA. Only 30 million turned out to participate in the primaries, whereas almost 66 million people voted for Clinton. My point is that there is a difference in voting groups, and I think that it is a fair assumption that Biden has a larger following among voters with a passing interest in politics, and will have the largest loss in voting strength come primary time.

Bernie was consistently 10 to 30 points behind Clinton in the polls in 2016, and yet Bernie got 43% of votes. Hell at this time in the campaign cycle in 2016, Bernie was trailing Clinton by 40 to 60 points. 12 points back is a lot better than that.

We have 1,000,000 volunteers and more donors than any candidate in history. We need to remember that it's the active few that are going to determine this race, not the docile many.

“The greater the belief that participation in the political process doesn’t make a difference, the more likely it is that people will give up hope that we can ever attain a just society and a decent standard of living” – Bernie Sanders ‘Outsider in the White House’

“Access to Healthcare” vs “Healthcare Security”. (Bernie staff please emphasize this difference in debates)

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

One means you get to send money to a private company run with a profit motive. They may or maynot cover your expenses when you get really sick. The other means every individual is guaranteed healthcare if they need it!

Some hard-hitting stats:

  • 646,812 Americans per year declare medical bankruptcy

  • 42% of new cancer patients lose their entire life savings in two years

  • 62% of cancer patients are in debt because of their treatment

  • 28.5 million did not have health insurance at any point during 2017

  • Among adults who were insured all year, 29 percent were underinsured in 2018

  • 41 percent of underinsured adults said they delayed needed care because of cost

  • 47% of underinsured adults report medical bill and debt problems

What are some major policy differences that would make a difference in who I vote for between Sanders and Warren?

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

I’m not as educated on all their ideas as I could be, but they both seem to represent similar ideas and I’m wondering what would make me choose one or the other. At this point I could probably take either as Democratic Nominee.

Talk to me about the difference between democratic socialism and Cuba socialism?

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

My fiance's grandpa is very anti Bernie. He grew up under Castro's regime in Cuba so he thinks a nation under Bernie could lead to the same outcome. Just wondering if someone who is more well-versed on the differences between Bernie socialism and Castro socialism can educate me?
