As a different method of explaining the absurdity of total college costs to the older generations, would anyone be able to tell me what the average price of a car would be today if such priced had risen at the same rate as college tuition over the past 30+ years?

I feel like general inflation numbers don't do it justice. Maybe it would be helpful to have such a statistic on hand when people try to trivialize the exploding price of receiving a college education. I would like to be able to say, "how would you feel if your car cost $ X," but would also be open to other price comparisons that describe the same idea

Edit: *fat fingers… meant 'prices' not 'priced' in the title

Convincing your friends and families to back Bernie over Warren

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

I want to preface with saying that Warren is my 2nd choice in this race and I would vote for her with some qualms. Also, obviously pulling from Biden is way more important at this point.

Here's the facts, we need Warren's supporters to defeat Biden. Divided we fall. The major thing that is eating into Bernie's support is that Warren went on a media blitz and is putting out several policies to see whatever sticks. The media with it's billionaire masters, obviously wants to push this divide in the left-wing of the democratic party as far as it can. Now you might ask yourself, how do you combat this? The simple answer is we have to push the facts.

Some people who are convinced on Warren say that she is the quintessential policy candidate. I really don't have faith in the person who called herself a "capitalist to my bones" and didn't take a stand to endorse Bernie in 2016 to actually get some of these things accomplished without doing some form of capitulating (she is already doing it with M4A).

Here are just some things to consider:

1.Bernie has been consistent his whole life on all his policies and fighting for the little guy, Warren was mostly a moderate-republican intill 1996.

2.Bernie helped Amazon workers get $ 15 by continued pressure on Bezos since 2016,, helping 100,000's of workers overnight. He will bring the same ferocity to the White House.

  1. In August 2016, Bernie joined the standing rock protest against the Dakota Access Pipeline, Warren waited till after the fact in December to show support after the Army Corps of Engineers would not grant the final easement, It was plain exploitation for political points.

  1. In 2014, Warren supported Israel's war on Gaza, where 547 civilians were killed by bombing, 250 of who were minors. Bernie was against that war calling it a "disproportionate response".

Now, obviously Warren might have "evolved" in some of these points, but having the correct view after the fact are not the qualities of a good leader, but are hallmarks of the standard politician. Bernie is creating a movement to change America, that started in 2015. Since then, he has changed the political landscape that has allowed even democratic socialists to run for office and win. We need someone to inspire the United States to become politically active.

If you guys have anymore examples, please post them below

Fox News Viewers Supporting Bernie over MSNBC Viewers is GOOD!

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

Everyone, this alone proves that Bernie is by far the most electable candidate. Him getting Fox News viewers on his side should worry Trump about a potential general election against him. How liberals could dare to say he isn't the most electable after this is beyond me. We NEED to hammer this home. And once again, stop trying to convert centrists. They are impeding progress and the largest obstacle to progress in this country. Talk to Republicans and talk to your friends that may be Republicans. THEY support Bernie.
