Serious question: who are some candidates that could eventually replace bernie

There's gotta be someone else that can pick up the torch. Someone non-corruptible with a good record and similarly progressive values who motivates people to vote. Others like Warren and Yang just don't seem up to that level for one reason or another

In 2016 I ran in to Bernie & Jane Sanders on the streets of Philadelphia while protesting outside the DNC; given the news of delegate shenanigans, I have some reflections from that experience.

In 2016 I volunteered and donated alongside millions of other Berners during our first history-making campaign. I was not a delegate, but I felt called to go to Philadelphia to express my dissatisfaction with other marchers on the streets outside the DNConvention. Given the news today about the DNC and their allies in government removing Bernie from the ballot, giving his delegates away, and otherwise trying to crush our movement, I felt that this story was timely.

I remember those wild days more vividly than most things. Real popular unrest in the streets. Looking around and seeing the throngs of people there, all motivated by a vision of a better world and refusing to be silenced, coming together. It felt like the beginning of a revolutionary time.

I remember I ran in to Bernie & Jane standing on the ground floor just outside city hall. He must have just exited the building because it seemed like no one noticed him, standing maybe 30 feet away. Made eye contact briefly and all I could do was take my hat off to him. I’ll never forget the sadness in his eyes. I think he really felt he let us down.

From that painful moment he and Jane started walking back to their hotel a few blocks away. I didn’t know what to do but followed them from a respectful distance. Over time a few more supporters joined, and before long we had a small crowd that marched with them all the way back.

At the end, Bernie and Jane went inside to rest while we stayed on the street outside, chanting, smiling, meeting each other. I made good friends from that crowd who I continue to organize with today.

What I took away from that experience was that Bernie can only lead us so far, but ultimately the ones who will make change were left standing in the street, filled with renewed courage and ready to make the city shake with our voices. And shake it did.

I have some leftover stickers for anyone in a state yet to vote. Will mail them to you.

A shipment from the Bernie store came after California primaries, so I have a couple of stickers that I would be happy to mail to someone in a state yet to vote.

Additionally, I also have a few leftover stickers that /u/helium-balloon so graciously mailed me a while back that I can include.

I'll divide the stickers out and send a handful to 2 people. I imagine this offer may go quick – apologies to anyone who sees this after they've been claimed.

Please PM me your name and address and I'll get them mailed out Monday.

I also have some of the small cardboard signs, but it may not be feasible for me to mail them as I don't have large enough envelopes and am staying put at home (no post office trips for me).

Some observations as an European for M4A against the argument that ‘there are long waiting times’

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

So I saw The View (and don’t want to get more into that) and one of the hosts made the claim (which I’ve seen before) that under M4A there would be long waiting times to getting an appointment and what if you can’t wait for so long. I live in Europe and my country’s healthcare system is basically what Bernie is advocating. To some specialized doctors – yes, there can be waiting times up to a month or so.

However, what I haven’t seen anybody address is that even though some rare cases you might have to wait for a little amount of time is that in case you cannot wait, you can always go to the emergency care. Urgent care does not only cover the care for immediately life threatening cases but also cases in which you cannot get help from anywhere else in the necessary amount of time (thus some urgency is needed). E.g. there are eye infection emergency rooms separate from others. You just don’t call the emergency number but you just go to the emergency room yourself. I’ve never heard that anyone who really had any problem that needed to be addressed would have been denied care. We also have an alternative to face-to-face help – there is a 24H line you can call and general practicioners answer – they will help you based on your symptoms to choose where to turn to with your problem. Additionally, you can e-mail your own GP with pictures etc and they can write you a digital prescription, if they are sure of the diagnosis. You can get emergency help for all conditions – including mental.

Also I have to mention that if you are insured under your coutries policies then your country will usually cover your healthcare if anything is to happen to you in another EU country, so you don’t have to worry about having emergency care in other EU countries and receiving a huge bill for that.

Maybe you can use this as a counterpoint in a conversation or maybe this just helps to complete your understanding of (one of) Europe’s healthcare system(s). (Wrote this on my phone so excuse for any grammar/spelling mistakes)
