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.

Bernie is the ONLY candidate not using corporate money. Warren’s already running on corporate money (and lying about it!)

Bernie's campaign is fueled by small-dollar contributions by regular people. Warren, unlike Bernie, took high-dollar contributions in 2018 for her Senate run from Biden's 2020 corporate donors. THE EXACT SAME PEOPLE. Then she transferred approx. 10 million of those corporate funds to her current campaign. Also, approx. 4.9 million came from the Elizabeth Warren Action Fund, which accepted PAC and industry donations through last year. And she continues to pretend like she doesn't run on corporate cash.

One very critical reason why Bernie >>>> Warren. Stick with Bernie. He's the only candidate who can be trusted to do what he says he will do. He's the only one with a massive, grassroots movement behind him to engage in pressure politics to make sure the job gets done.
