Democrats want party unity to beat Trump? We agree: if you want to beat Trump, unite behind Bernie.

A lot of well-meaning centrist Democrats and even a couple progressive-minded activists talk about "Unity" claptrap and will re-elect Trump in the process: they believe we need to unite around a compromise candidate to beat Trump. But Bernie has a MUCH safer shot of beating Trump than Warren. People who look the other way and refuse to fully internalize this fact — centrist Dem voters nationwide, and DNC leaders — are doing the nation a huge disservice by not taking our warning seriously. If you want to beat Trump, you don't have a choice. Unite behind Bernie. Unite now.

Bernie can swing independents, Trump voters, conservatives; Warren can't. Bernie can win in the states that Clinton lost to Trump in 2016; Warren can't. Bernie can speak to the suffering of the poor and the Rust Belt states that were abandoned by the Democrats; Warren can't. Bernie doesn't have a host of ticking time bombs and scandals that, even if Democrats won't touch them now, Trump will ruthlessly use as ammo in the general election (systematically lying about her past in several different ways, being a registered Republican in the 80s); Warren does.

Trump would LOVE to go up against Warren instead of Bernie. If the Democrats are serious about beating Trump, they don't have a choice but to unite behind Bernie. Does the DNC want to win? Then, sorry, you don't get to keep the status quo. The energy of the party is with Bernie, the people that your party left behind are with Bernie, and Bernie is the safer choice against Trump. Unite or lose.

In case anyone is confused about the rules of the Democratic Party, Dollemore did a super thorough video back in February anticipating the attack and went through DP bylaws to dispute the claim that Bernie’s not a D. This video is an awesome rebuttal to the bullshit that’s about to come up AGAIN.

Sanders Merch Giveaway: Is this a good idea for a party?

I was going to donate a few hundred to Sanders, but then I thought it would be better to buy a bunch of merchandise and give most of it away as a means of attracting people to a local event. But is that potentially going to negate other people's donations if they receive the stuff for free?

I am feeling so energized this weekend!

Thank you to everyone who was able to attend my Plan to Win party! Here's the video, if you want to rewatch: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nWXc9bNk7cA

In summary, this campaign is a Mass Movement of 1+ Million individual contributions and just as many volunteers. We are mobilizing our personal social networks using the Bern app, to find allies in this struggle against the billionaires for a government that benefits everybody, not just the 1%.

Use the Bern app to add everybody you know or talk to, so you can mobilize them near election day. Use the Bern app to share #MyBernieStory and invite others to add themselves to your network. Use the Bern app to plug new people into the campaign in Community Canvass mode.

And beyond securing a plan for everybody you care about to vote for Bernie, we are the only campaign saying #NotMeUs- we need you to volunteer to phonebank, textbank, host parties, and canvass. Go wild with whatever you think would be most effective and energizing. This is much more important than donations.

Text win to 67760 to sign up to make calls for Bernie during the Nation Days of Calling. It will link you to https://bsanders.us/ctw

Please RSVP at https://map.berniesanders.com to an upcoming event, so we can continue our conversation and momentum.

The #ClimateStrike turnout is proof that a mass movement is ready. We just need to pass it on!

Please stay in touch with me: Twitter: @MaLaCoiD Countable: @MaLaCoiD … and invite me to all your Bernie events.

How much of an impact does losing the Workers’ Families Party Endorsement make to Sanders’ campaign?

I've personally never even heard of the contest prior to today and some people make it out to be a significant loss, whereas some others say that it doesn't at all matter.

Will this likely give Warren the edge over Bernie?
