Hello, everyone.

Recently, I’ve been wondering exactly this: If public universities become free under a President Sanders, would that mean colleges like UVA and Michigan would be free for anyone regardless of the state you come from?

If you don’t know already, UVA and Michigan are both arguably the top two public universities in the USA. But, would they be made free for anyone regardless of the state under a President Sanders? Or would it be free only for in state students?

Thank you!

Sanders didn’t transform the party by himself in 2016, his supporters worked like hell.

Sanders didn't transform the party in 2016 by himself, his supporters worked themselves to the bone: phone banking, going door to door, massive marches, helping register new voters, talking to family and friends, and donating even when they had little.

We overcame the media, we closed a 40 point lead despite the Super Delegates giving Clinton am insurmountable lead, and changed the party's platform going into 2020 to Medicare, a living wage, and Climate Change.

This is a grass root campaign, no corporate bribes.

Not me, Us.

Bernei needs to be more upfront about how his programs are going to be enacted and be direct with his answers. Only then can he stand out compared to politicians like Warren who try to veil their programs just so they seem “not so extreme”

In the debate, the moderator asked Bernie if he was going to raise taxes to help fund his programs, something no other candidate was asked, making it seem like only his programs would require a change in taxes. Regardless of how it was only targeted at him, he stumbled with his answers. He was not willing to directly say that,"Yes the programs will be paid for by increasing the taxes of everyone, but more for the rich than the poor." I believe that he needs to be more upfront about everything that his programs entail. This will make him seem like the honest one among a group of dishonest politicians who say anything and everything to get elected. Also, there will no longer be ground for criticizing his programs as "some socialist fairyland dream" and make them seem legitimate. He can also distinguish himself more from Warren (who he gets couched together with often) and expose how she has been advocating the same program in a sly manner just so she doesn't scare off people with irrational fear of a socialist takeover.

He should get the message of FDR out more and be more articulate in interviews and debates of how "other politicians want to enact the programs that he envisioned for America but without them costing a penny." RFK's answer when he was asked by a person from the crowd during his presidential run a out how his programs would be paid for also resonates. "From your pockets" was his simple yet profound honest answer.

If he does this, I believe it won't be difficult to topple all the phonies that share the stage with him.

My favorite interview w/ Bernie. It’s like a greatest hits album

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

in October of 2014 Bernie Sanders sat down w/ Bill Moyers for an interview about campaign finance corrupting every level of politics and how to fight back. Contrasting this interview w/ the current state of our media is shocking. We need more Bill Moyers out there taking politics seriously instead of treating it like sports teams and entertainment

I wish Bernie would say something like this in his opening or closing statement in at least one of the debates. I’m not sure how accurate I am so feel free to suggest changes

America was founded on the principles of freedom and equality. But as time has gone by these rights seem to be reserved for the few that can horde wealth and influence. I have made it my life’s work to call out these injustices. As a 21 year old I chained myself to a black student to protest student housing segregation – long before Kamala was being bussed. I started a gay parade in Vermont the year after Buttigieg was born. I led the opposition against the crime bill and the Iraq war that Biden voted for. I started the call for $ 15 minimum wage when my colleagues on this stage thought it was too high. And today I stand as the only candidate on this stage who believes that every American citizen deserves quality healthcare without being gouged by private insurers. We must protect our inalienable rights but we can only do so when millions of us come together to defend it.

Just some thoughts this go round and things I’d like to see in this sub

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

I was here for all of 2015/2016 and I see/feel a difference in this sub this time around.

I know it's early – BUT- the volunteering has BEGUN and needs to amp up. I don't come in here nearly as often as I did the last time because most of what I see is the same polls, memes, articles being talked about. I check in once a day – scan – and pretty much leave the sub.

Volunteering or poll posts barely get commented on or upvoted.

The MoveOn straw poll happened and Warren beat out Bernie big time- I didn't even see it posted here (maybe it was, but if so, it didn't make it to the front page that I saw)…..last time we were all over these things. Granted I didn't know about the poll, found it in my spam folder too late – BUT- I did post about the WFP – working families party Poll last week and it got 2 comments and like hardly any upvotes. These polls may seem silly – but they are used on social media and the news to gauge support. Warren cleaned our clock with MoveOne….and these are also important because these orgs ENDORSE. Last time both MoveOn and WFP endorsed Bernie – and were a BIG help in trying to get him elected. We need orgs like this when we are fighting so many other establishment Pacs. People pushed that silly straw poll from DailyKos like crazy – because they can't stand the guy running it, and it's talked about on MSM – But they don't endorse/help – orgs like MoveON and WFP DO.

Also- would love to see the mods push volunteering a bit more. Did you know the Bernie dialer is already up and running? We are already phonebanking into early states like Iowa, NH AND California…..can we get the link across the top of the page again? Have contests and such like before to get people to start volunteering and stop just talking about Biden and Warren? It was a lot of fun watching the red dots ping across the Bernie dialer map and having it light up.

Would also be cool to see like the new Bernie App link at the top that volunteers created (available for iPhone on iTunes right now – android coming soon) and the Bern App as well….maybe start a competition of some sorts for people to get into using the Bern app – whoever gets the most peer-to-peer canvasing points in a given time gets a cool flair?

I also haven't been seeing hardly any money bombs being organized on here….the last one was I think when Biden announced? This is the largest platform of Bernie supporters and we can make a big difference if we are strategic and use this for more than looking at the most recent poll and speculating if AOC is going to endorse Sanders.

I'm not saying we can't have fun but man it really is upsetting when I see Harry and Nate Silver on Twitter basically laughing at Bernie because Warren won a MoveOn poll that Bernie should have cleaned up on (Nate was delighted to point this out)

Anyway – just my 2 cents…I run a local Bernie group here on the ground – and it's hard and time consuming….and trying to even just get people to RSVP to the debate watch party is like pulling teeth. We need to be promoting the important stuff. Many on the ground aren't even paying attention right now. It's the best time to get them engaged. We can do that, if we organize on here – and get ourselves out into the streets/on the phones.

Mods…we need to shift this place into Volunteer mode…these next few months are going to go FAST – and we need to put this army into action now – Biden is still leading in the polls, Warren is getting pushed in the MSM – so we all are it…it's US that will make it so Bernie wins.

(and thank you to those I have seen posting about volunteering and tabling and such – I have seen some of those posts and try to comment/upvote them as much as I can)

Ok- end of rant – please don't be mad at me – I want this to be a fun place too – but man – we need to get our butts moving is all I'm saying.
