I just watched the Warren townhall on CNN and compared the questions to the Bernie townhall

Warren:

  • White supremacists have become more emboldened; what are your plans to unite the country?

  • How would your administration publicly apologize to the African-American community for slavery?

  • Can you explain how "Medicare for All" would be better for workers than simply improving the ACA?

  • How did your familiy's financial problems during your childhood shape who you are today?

  • What will you do to control immigration?

  • How will you lower rents to help those who are struggling to find affordable housing?

  • How do you respond to those who think your handling of your Native American heritage was tone deaf?

  • How will you expand voting rights to the formerly incarcerated, ensure online voter registration and no-excuse early voting?

  • What is your position on impeaching Trump?

  • How would you improve the education system and also make it fair to all Americans?

  • What role does faith play in your life?

Sanders:

  • How will you defeat Trump if you're the Democratic nominee and will you help defeat him if someone else is nominated?

  • How would you pay for your ambitious policy ideals?

  • Do you think you'll get a fair shake in the Democratic nominating process given your history as an Indepentent?

  • When will you release your taxes?

  • Can you make a simple, persuasive case why socialism is preferable to capitalism?

  • How can Democratic voters be confident in you given your response to sexual harassment claims in your 2016 campaign?

  • If you're on the debate stage with Donald Trump, how will you engage with him?

  • Would Americans who like their private insurance be able to keep it under your "M4A" plan?

  • As president, would you meet with North Korea's dictator Kim Jong Un?

  • How do you address African-American voters' concern about you?

  • Why have you stopped short of calling Venezuela's Maduro a dictator?

  • What would you do to help Washington DC voters get representation in Congress?

-one of Sanders weaknesses from last time was foreign policy

-he studied up on it, so he's stronger on it now, but he's not talking any different in rallies/speeches so far

-tulsi is talking so much on foreign policy, possibly 90%

-plan could be that sanders stays focused on US policy which worked so well in 2016, and tulsi handles most of foreign policy, and together it's a great mix

I’d like some thoughts on this interaction I just had with another liberal

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

I can't get it out of my head. It's obviously bothering me. So we were all having a good time, getting ready to all go home, trump comes up and we're all venting a little. Then somehow, I forget exactly how, this person realizes that I'm a bernie supporter and goes from 0-100 instantly, furious at me.

I'm pretty damn far from a "bernie bro", whether that's a mythical thing or not, but I do support the guy and I hope he manages a really compelling case for the 2020 nomination.

So here are the claims that were levied against him:

  1. Yes he was arrested once for protesting civil rights, but he's done absolutely nothing aside from that. What does it matter what he did in the 60's if he's done nothing since?
  2. He's a strong supporter of the NRA and has an A+ rating with them, how can you support that?
  3. He has three houses, oh totally he understands the plight of the working class.
  4. He wrote an essay about women fantasizing about being raped, what a complete asshole.
  5. He lied about marching with MLK, it's a complete fabrication.
  6. That he didn't vote until he was 40 years old.

And some other more minor things. I want to make clear that this is someone incredibly intelligent and who I respect a lot, which I think is why this bothers me so much. I wasn't aware of any of these accusations previously and I looked into them and aside from that weird ass essay he wrote about sexual deviance (he seemed to be arguing that society is promoting sexual deviancy, not that people are naturally this way) I can't find any evidence for the other things.

My main question, I guess, is that I just felt completely at a loss to discuss these issues and I don't know how we're supposed to talk about this. Any ideas? I was trying to be chill and polite but I was being half yelled at, and despite me giving her the benefit of the doubt it seems like the majority of the accusations are just straight up false information.

Any thoughts? I'm sorry if this breaks any rules and I promise I'm not a concern troll, I donated the day bernie announced, I just feel very frustrated over this interaction.

What democratic socialism means to Bernie Sanders: ✅ Reforming our corrupt political system ✅ An economy that works for all, not just the few What it does NOT mean: ❌ Authoritarianism ❌ Totalitarianism ❌ Overturn the free market He made that clear 40 years ago. #Bernie2020

Silly question, was Bernie being “unlikable” a smear just like Bernie Bros.?

I've seen many people say he puts people off, but I find him extremely charismatic and likable. I'm obviously biased, but I feel like anyone meeting him (with zero political leanings), they would find him quite a likable guy. I don't know, it's repeated enough that I just assumed that it was true, but I've seen so many interviews and speeches and he seems extremely charismatic. He jokes in an appropriate way, he's personable, and he interacts even during speeches.

What do you guys think about Bernie supporting the Just Act?

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

From what I understand the act pays reparations to holocaust survivors and their ancestors for land lost. I just don’t understand why the US has to pay since we didn’t cause their suffering. Any thoughts and comments on this would be appreciated. I can’t wait to vote for this man in the primary!

“We are going to bring people together – black, white, Latino, Native American, Asian American, gay, straight, young, old, men, women, native born and immigrant. When we do that, we are going to create an economy and government which works for all Americans, and not just the 1 percent” – Team Bernie

From the most recent email (Subject Line "[Photos] Our YUUUGE events in Brooklyn and Chicago"):

While Donald Trump wants to divide us up by the color of our skin, our country of origin, our gender, our religion and our sexual orientation – we are going to do exactly the opposite. We are going to bring our people together – black, white, Latino, Native American, Asian American, gay and straight, young and old, men and women, native born and immigrant.

Because when we do that, we are going to finally create an economy and a government which works for all Americans, and not just the 1 percent.
