Every time I bring up my support for Bernie…

I get met with things like "he has no chance, it's going to be Biden", "he's too old", or the fun one today regarding cancelling student debt "too many people go to college", "fix the cost of tuition and books instead".

I'm not great at articulating statements back and get frustrated after a few attempts so I just end up dropping it, but I'm proud to support Bernie. It's just so frustrating.

Many voters I know, like parents and even a Democratic candidate for the HOR who ran in my district seem to all be adopting Bernie's message of Medicare for All and a Green New Deal, which is both exciting and reassuring. But when questioned about Bernie directly seem almost offended by him. I can run down a list of policies, examining their alignments on every issue and I find a voter who is almost entirely aligned with Bernie Sanders but finds the messenger himself to be the single-issue deal-breaker.

The case with the people I know and many self-described progressives nationwide is that the mainstream media has portrayed other candidates as more progressive than Sanders, like when Warren proposed her college debt plan and the media exclaimed how she's dashing to Bernie's left. Blind faith is placed in centrism-biased media outlets as they cloak themselves with a thin veil of false progressivism. I know people who were on team Clinton in 2016 who now back Booker, Harris, or some other establishment candidate because of their "staunch progressivism". There is a racial and age element in people believing Bernie should "pass the torch", perhaps that's the reason then.

Our revolution not only stands up to a collection of complacent, corrupt, and exploitative industries, but we face an ignorance manufactured by corporate media which will do all it can to silence us. The purpose of the media is to be a check on power. Now it is a slave to power. Bernie Sanders now has the vote of the overwhelming majority of the Democratic party in all but name.

Should the Sanders campaign work to generate support in states by showcasing how corporations have benefited from state tax policies over the past few decades?

Should the Sanders campaign work to generate support in states by showcasing how corporations have benefited from state tax policies over the past few decades? For Republicans and corporate Democrats, shift the tax burden at the state level to workers is a win-win. Corporations pay less, and the public becomes sensitized to high taxes and more receptive to pro-tax cut propaganda. Joe Biden and Republicans likes to talk about states rights when it suites them. Maybe it is time to talk corporate taxes at the state level too. As indicated in the 2016 link, "In 36 of 46 states collecting corporate income taxes, net corporate revenues grew at a slower rate than total revenue over the past 20 years." Some of the more extreme examples … In Ohio, corporate tax revenues dropped 81% versus a 64% overall increase. In Michigan, it was a 72% drop in corporate taxes versus a 56% overall increase. In Louisiana, it was a 54% drop in corporate taxes versus a 68% overall increase. So regular people are seeing their taxes going up while corporations, and their investors are going to be reaping the rewards … unless the corporations are paying their employees well, giving bonuses, etc. https://www.governing.com/topics/finance/gov-disappearing-corporate-taxes.html

Last night, we heard a lot of candidates talk about how much they support Bernie’s ideas/plans…which begs the question…why vote for people who support his plans when you can vote for the man himself? #Bernie2020

They all wanted to talk about medicare for all, tuition free college, a green new deal, etc.

Elizabeth Warren even gave Bernie props when asked about his Medicare for All Plan?

But why should we vote for people who merely support his ideas, and didn't dare do so until he had already made them wildly popular, when we can actually vote for the man behind the plan himself?

Talk to your friends. Donate. Engage. Be involved. Don't stop. Until we fucking win.
