… Bernie's des Moines interview, on my cell.

I need to make my way to the bedroom without waking up my spouse, so i use my phone's screen, playing the interview on YouTube, to shine a little light ahead of me.

Then it hit me: Bernie was literally my beacon of light showing the way.

Please, PLEASE caucus, Iowa, the eyes of the world are on you.

The campaign has been saying that they need a little more money to fully enact their strategy in the first few states. If we post massive fundraising tomorrow, swing voters will take notice.

The campaign needs cash to fund the grassroots groundgame that will win the election.

A win for Bernie in Iowa will completely redefine the race in his favor. Right now is probably the most important 2 week stretch of the campaign.

If there were ever a time to donate, it's right now while the campaign is surging but needs that extra kick to get out the vote and the mobilize volunteers. Last week I gave $ 20 for the first time and today, I gave another $ 2.70. Bernie's campaign doesn't have billionaire donors or a Super PAC. It's up to us.

Over the past 6 weeks or so I have made an effort to donate at least once a week. Most of the time it's only $ 2.70, but i feel with consistency and more of the same we can continue to build support not only for Bernie, but for everything he has always stood for. Thank you all for being such a supportive community! See you all in November!

Why I, a Bernie 2016 supporter who has been uncommitted in this primary until recently, think it’s important we remain positive and act with integrity

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

A year ago I didn't even know if I wanted to get involved in the Democratic primary, or who I would support. I supported and even campaigned for Bernie in 2016, but I wasn't terribly excited for his campaign last year. To be frank, the radical and/or extremely negative Bernie supporters really turned me off. And no, please don't drop the "russians/bots" excuse. I was there in 2016, finding myself slinging mud at Hillary because I was so worked up. I know plenty of it comes from real supporters. But I digress.

Early in 2019, Mayor Pete felt refreshing. He talked about democratic reform more than any candidate, he could talk off the cuff about a lot of issues that other candidates were less willing to, and he had a calm demeanor and articulate speaking voice that felt very Presidential. Eventually, he showed his colors when his campaign started losing steam and he needed ways to build it back up, largely by attacking other candidates, as well as finding new sources of funding (spoilers: not small donors).

Around the time that Pete was coming down, Warren was hitting her stride. She had a great progressive message, came at a more compassionate angle than Bernie, and just felt like a very well-rounded candidate. I've always been fond of her, so I was getting very excited for her instead of Pete. Eventually, she showed her colors when her campaign started losing steam, first by backing off on some of her progressive positions, and now by feeding into this awful smear "leaked" by her staffers.

For the last few weeks I haven't actually been "feeling the Bern" but instead remembering why I had felt it in the first place back in 2015: there's simply no one else. Bernie isn't perfect, no one is, but the dude has more integrity than any other politician, just, like, period. His consistency is unrivaled for someone who has been in politics for this long. So if you give me a "he said, she said" involving Bernie, the answer is always gonna be Bernie.

The claim is so ludicrous that it's dead on arrival to me without any evidence, but I also don't want to have to call Warren a liar. I think she would make a great President, and you can dig through my history–I think if she had run in 2016 she would actually be President right now and I would have loved to have voted for her. But she's just not as honest and consistent as Bernie. No one is. People like him aren't meant to survive the corrupt political system that has pervaded this country.

It's not a coincidence that in the span of a week, Trump tweets about "crazy Bernie's" surge, the media suddenly starts spamming stories about him (both good and bad, but by this point, mostly bad), and Warren chooses not to take the high road but instead double-down on a claim that can't be proven to be true and would be insanely out of character for Bernie to say.

What's truly disappointing is how so many people with different views and in different positions of power all fear the popularity of someone who has such an unapologetically positive message. I'm just tired of all of the negativity. I implore all of you to be positive. Don't attack people. We can see no matter how positive these other campaigns started out, they all went negative when they start to struggle. DON'T fall into that trap. Be better.

If Bernie wins it will be because WE helped convince a majority of the party and a majority of the country that Bernie represents them. Negativity won't change people's minds. Remember that every time you engage with someone.

Be Gentle, It’s My First Time (Donating)

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

I'm 45. I've been a registered republican since I was 18, though the last time I voted for a republican president was the first time "W" ran. I did not vote for him the second time and haven't voted republican since.

I feel like the republican party has shifted way to far right for me to be remotely comfortable with their positions and policies. I'm more fiscally conservative but socially liberal, and the republican part of today sickens me. The rhetoric from family members parroting Fox news talking points all over Facebook sickens me. Legit sick to my stomach feeling interacting with my own family members who can't even see the republican policies they defend so rabidly are having a huge negative impact on their own lives, on their own children's lives.

I've been told, by my own family members that only people who can't provide for themselves or their families vote democrat, yet I'm relatively successful in my eyes, and much more successful in my career than any of those family members.

I've been told that democrats are cowards, and couldn't defend out nation if needed, that only republicans are true patriots. I've been told this by my own family members who never served in the military, the irony lost on them that I spent 5 years on active duty in the Marines.

I've been told that college is dangerous, I've had family members tell me they hope their child doesn't go to college. This from family members who bounce from job to job while struggling financially or being supported by their spouse.

I can't take it any more. Today was the final straw in bs, hypocritical nonsense from family members. So today I decided to make a change. Instead of addressing their nonsense head on, which has proven to be pointless, I've decided to counteract their ignorance in another manner.

Today is the first time in my life that I've ever made political contributions. I donated $ 100 to the cause.

Every time I feel like I've reached the end of my patience dealing with their nonsense, I'll make another contribution!

Good luck Bernie. You have my support!

New ridiculous smear against Bernie by AP. Here’s why it’s bull

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

https://apnews.com/345bbd1af529cfb1e41305fa3ab1e604

Basically, they are calling Our Revolution, a grassroots-funded PAC for downballot progressives, "dark money" and a "super pac"

Now, it's AP, so they've got to have some good evidence before writing a piece, right?

Nope.

Their literal entire point is that because PACs don't have to disclose their donors, a billionaire could theoretically put a bunch of money into it and then they could put it into Bernie's campaign. And they say that any money Our Revolution raises is "dark money" because they don't have to disclose the donors. So literally the 99% small donors are dark money now, I guess.

Now I don't think any billionaires are putting any massive amounts of money into a group that works to elect progressives that want billionaires to not exist. How ridiculous of an assumption, AP.

This is the most botched, vague article I've ever come across from AP and is a blatant smear article. Beware.
