I have a little suggestion about creating content to support Bernie’s campaign…

First of all, I'd like to thank everyone doing work for the Sanders campaign. I think he is the most compassionate and sensible candidate running. And I think the GND is absolutely necessary to deal with a wide variety of serious problems.

That said, Bernie's support among older people is still lagging behind. I think this is largely due to the fact that older people consume more corporate media and have less ability to find information on the internet. Part of that needs to be addressed by Bernie's campaign with money spent on traditional advertising focused at older people. But, also, I think youtubers and other content creators can make content directed at older voters and then shown to those older voters by his younger supporters.

I think this would be easier for a lot of people than trying to convince grandma and grandpa with simple verbal engagement. Not saying verbal engagement is unimportant or totally ineffective, but it's not easy for everyone and sometimes older people don't give their grandkids the respect they deserve.

So I'm asking Bernie-supporting content creators to create some messages which speak to the concerns of older people and then I'm asking his other young supporters to go out of their way to share the best content with their older relatives.

We can do this! #Bernie2020

I’m frustrated with how people use being worried that M4A may not bode well with moderates/conservatives is a reason people don’t support Bernie

I just don't get it. You're going to support someone else because another person may not agree with you? Take a stand for what you believe in! Do you think republicans compromise on their beliefs because dems don't agree? No! they fight for what they believe in.

I was phone banking today, and this came up. I didn't think about this as a counter at the time, but I think if said in a respectful manner it could resonate. "Do you think republicans would compromise on their beliefs because of what we think?" or something like that.

Hope this will help your phone banking. Thoughts?

What videos should I show my parents to get them to support Bernie?

I've talked to them about Bernie quite a bit, and they agree on virtually everything, with the one exception being abortion. We live in a southern, rural, republican state (Arkansas) which would benefit quite greatly from Bernie's policies (yet ironically opposes him). We have one of the worse healthcare systems in the country, pay is terrible, and conditions are horrible.

My mother works three jobs (two of which are on commission) and has an insane amount of student loan and medical debt, and my stepdad works a lot of overtime (maybe 70 hours a week?!). My bio dad is also disabled and barely gets by. Should note my mother voted for Trump but now dislikes him, and my bio dad refuses to even be open to the idea of voting.

Taking all of this into consideration, what do you guys think would be the best videos to show my parents, specifically of Bernie speaking?

I couldn’t convince my TFG dad to support Bernie, but I did convince my mom!

My dad is so far down the MAGA rabbit hole that he can’t see the sun anymore. There’s no hope for him, I’ll just have to ask him in 4 years what he really thinks was the right decision.

But I did manage to bring in my mom! My mom was already a Democrat; she voted for Clinton in 2016. But she was really conflicted on who to vote for this election. She really didn’t want Trump to win another term, but she really didn’t want Biden to be president either. Her first choice, Kamala Harris, dropped out. I managed to catch her right in the “I don’t know who to vote for” stage to talk to her about Sanders. When asked, she said she’d support him but wasn’t sure about voting for him. She was under the impression he was polling poorly, but when I brought up the fact he was in second, she was totally on board supporting him!

I think her crowd, the 40-60 y/o Democrats might be a big factor in winning the primaries and election. So if you know anyone like that, talk to them! They probably support Bernie’s ideas but don’t know how much of a chance he has! We’re all in this together, that includes the young, elderly, and the middle aged.
