Hello, I a brit who also lives in the UK. I am also someone who really wants you guys to succeed with Burnie, it's amazing to see how much crap you all go through and I'd like to see your lives get better.

That being said it seems there isn't much I can do to help. I understand I cannot contribute financially as someone outside the USA. And I have a wife and young family so I can't do what some do in the UK and volunteer my time in the states.

Is there a way I can help?

As an aside, just imagine how great it would feel to see a US UK joint press conference of Bernie Sanders and Jeremy Corbyn.

Some math advice that may help all of you

Hey everyone, I am leaning toward Bernie at the moment. I also hold a public office locally, and saw something interesting happen while I was running for office, and see the same thing happening now in regards to M4A, so I thought I'd drop some fairly obvious knowledge on you that may help you win and argument or sway a skeptical voter.

While percentages are generally the best way to represent numbers (because they normalize the scale) they are also hard for some people to understand, and easy for others to take advantage of.

What I'm specifically talking about is adding percentages. I don't know what the supposed added tax is for M4A, but I saw 14% on another thread, so I'm going to go with that here. The actual number is irrelevant.

As a scare tactic, people will say "You taxes will go up by 14%!!!" Now, what many, many people do in their heads is think "well shit, I already by 30% of my gross pay in taxes, so now I'll have to pay 44%!!! NO WAY!"

As I said, it should be obvious why this is wrong, but it's not to a lot of people. Of course, a 14% increase means 145 more than you're paying now. So, if you are paying 30% of your pay in taxes, a 14% increase is (30% + (14% of 30%) = (30% + 4.2%) = 34.2%

This seems stupid to some of you I'm sure, but it's real. I had a local town administrator tell the community at a public meeting that since a budget went up 7% each year, it had gone up 28%, when in reality it had gone up 31%. Using small numbers like 7% can mask the issue, because the difference really is small, but when you're talking larger numbers like 14% and 30%, as you can see above the difference in actual amounts and what people perceive can be large.

To put a finer point on it, take a person that makes $ 75k/year. @ 30% they are currently paying $ 22,500 in taxes. If they don't understand how adding percentages works, they could *think* they are going to pay 44% or $ 33,000, when in reality to would be 34.2% or $ 25,650.

Sorry if this was rambling, I"m having trouble getting my point across. I guess bottom line is, don't let numbers scare people.

Help me wrap my head around student loan forgiveness!

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

Hello,

I want to start off by saying I’m a very strong Bernie supporter! I’ve hosted one phone bank event for Bernie and have been talking to my friends and family about why they should vote for him. I am also going to drive to California and start doing canvassing events soon (live in arizona)

I do have an honest question on Bernie Sanders student loan forgiveness program. I graduated with $ 59,000 in student loans and I have been living very frugally for the past 7 years. I have paid off so much that I currently only owe $ 18,000 and plan to have that paid by end of next year! I also paid thousands in interest so it’s really more then $ 59k.

Yes I’ve been fortunate to have a good job but I have also made a lot of sacrifices. I have been driving the same car I’ve had since junior year of high school (no car payments and insurance is $ 50 a month) while my peers have mostly treated themselves to newer cars. I’ve been living with two roommates in an apartment while most of my peers have their own apartment and some even in better places in town. I make an effort to not eat out almost anytime except once or twice a week while I see a lot of my colleagues going out to lunch every single day. The list goes on and on.

I see lots of friends deferring their loans and “wasting” their money on non necessities while I work to be really strict with my spending.

Does Bernie’s plan account for people that have Been working hard to finish their loans earlier?

If not, how do I justify this as a good thing even for people like myself. I know overall the country will be better if people are able to have freedom over their money but I can’t help but think how unfair it is to those of us that have been grinding away while I see others spending $ 300 at bars and restaurants every weekend. Why should they get this help?

I hate to sound selfish and I’m coming from a place of love. I would still be happy if student loans are forgiven but I would have a little sour taste in my mouth

The campaign NEEDS help!!

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

Looks like the campaign is doing phone banking to voters in NY regarding the soon approaching NY voter registration switch deadline.

I saw this tweet about the push that the campaign is doing to “call every registered independent, Green, or WFP voter in New York with a phone number to ask them to change their party registration if they support Bernie.”

This is EXCELLENT and exciting that the dialer will open for this on Saturday but when I looked on the sign up site and there are TON of shifts still available. 😦 It’s so sad to see. If this is the state of the campaign, I’m confused and disheartened, we really need to get moving here!

I don’t understand, we have a community here this large and supposedly 1 million volunteers and we can’t fill a week of call shifts for this MOST IMPORTANT effort? New York is a gigantic pile of delegates and independents feel the Bern. It makes me wonder what the heck is going on. Are people not getting the info to do this stuff (campaign needs better marketing/outreach) or are people just not that engaged to volunteer??

Hosting events to help raise money for campaign.

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

Hi all. Long time supporter but new to this sub. Just curious about what the title indicates. Is there anyway to host events where "entry fees" can be then donated to the campaign? If this would be possible, any pertinent info would be greatly appreciated. Would getting in touch with local/state organizers be the first step to get them involved so everything is legit (cross the t's and dot the lowercase j's)? Thinking I would really like to get involved somehow and just thinking through logistics of fundraiser events. Had some ideas in mind. Thanks!

I will help get the vote out for Iowa and NH

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

I am posting this to declare my support to you guys!

I am a housing activist in Europe fighting against racist privatisation housing politics. Activism takes all of my time, so I haven't been able to phonebank for Bernie. However, when time comes to getting the vote out in Iowa and NH, I will do my damn best to help out (as long as there isn't something really urgent happening in our housing fight).

While I believe fighting with one's own community is the most important thing to do, I also recognise that the big pressure that Capital Funds and landlords are exerting to privatise public housing is not going to end until the US puts a stop to their limitless power. US politics have a huge effect of the whole world. The neoliberal wave that Regan in the US and Thatcher in the UK have put into force has affected the whole world.

So I will be helping you guys out, and I may even organise a phonebank party and get my friend to join. Your fight is just too important that we all have to join forces to help Bernie win.

When President Bernie Sanders takes office in January 2021 what are YOU going to do to help the movement?

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

Bernie always says he can’t do this alone. He doesn’t have a really good answer yet to how this going to happen. It’s going to take a mass movement of people to get

  • Medicare for All.

  • Reform the criminal justice system.

  • Effectively address Climate Change.

  • Restore the rights of working people.

And the rest.

What does that mass movement look like?

What can we do?

What tactics do we use?

What structures do we have and what structures do we need to build?

Let’s help Bernie now by discussing and organizing what WE plan to do to make his/our platform happen.
