Post Debate Pep Talk (Thoughts and Criticism Welcome)

For those of us hosting debate parties, I think we should give a pep talk if we can to our fellow supporters. Here’s the gist of what I plan to say to whoever comes to my debate party.

“Before everyone goes I’d like to say a few words. Look around at what’s going, truly horrific things are going on in this world. Blistering egos are in power from Brazil, the UK, Poland, Russia, the United States. They will usher in a new dark age unless we stop them. People might ask, why did we have to live through these horrible times. But the answer is simple, that is not up to us what sort of times we live in , it is up to us what to do with the time that is given us.

Now it’s not the time for despair but for hope. We will defeat all these global threats. And we will, starting with the Prez himself. We shall overcame. So when you go out there to phone bank or to knock on doors, be sure to say that our movement is not about the Democratic Party, it’s not about purity, its not even about Bernie himself, it’s not even about politics when it comes down to it, it’s about our basic humanity and the fact that there is more that binds us than divides us.

Just imagine what would happen if instead of fighting each other, we fight for each other instead. In this election it’s about the survival of our species and our humanity, it’s about rejecting our petty self interests and acting together in solidarity for the good of our species and our planet.

Trump is just a passing thing, the last gasp of hate and intolerance. To quote an ancient Hebrew teaching, “This too shall pass” We’re gonna win this primary and beat Donald Trump in the general election because our humanitarianism is stronger than corporate money, stronger than the forces of greed and political expedience, stronger than fascism. We’re going to win this thing if we put our hearts into this, and Trump will just be a footnote in history. Yes we can.”

TLDR: I think those of us hosting debate parties have to give pep talks to our fellow supporters. What I plan to say whoever comes to my debate part is that this movement isn’t just politics but a humanitarian movement. That our common bonds as humans are stronger than corporate greed and stronger than the hate spewed on a daily basis. We will beat Trump.

We need to talk about the NY primary, and all elections, and the need for election judges

Brooklyn admitted to criminal rigging of the 2016 primary, and Iowa was won by Clinton via a "coin flip". Everyone needs to look into taking the election judge class in their area so that they can save the election for Bernie.

Here’s an idea I had to help Bernie reach out to older voters: A 1-800 number people can call to hear him talk about his policies.

Like the title says, have an automated 1-800 number/Bernie hotline for people to call, and they can listen to different policy positions using the key pad. To make it easy, have 9 issues explained by Bernie, and limit them to issues that appeal to older voters. Have it set up so every number that calls is logged, and volunteers can use the log to follow up with them and make sure we get their vote. To get the word out about the hotline, make a cheesy retro "CALL NOW!" short commercial featuring Bernie and run it during Judge Judy, Matlock, etc.

I realize this is low-tech outreach, but I think this would be a better way to reach elderly voters than an app or a website.

What do you think? Good idea? Bad idea? Any suggestions? Also, if this could work, how do I suggest this to the campaign?

Bernie should talk about closing Guantanamo Bay, where migrants are being sent..

Looks like migrants are being put in gitmo, for profit. I remember in 2016 Bernie was pretty tough on this issue. From FeelTheBeen.org:

"Bernie supports closing the Guantánamo Bay detention camp that the United States maintains on the Cuban island, noting it has “significantly damaged the United States’ moral standing, undermined our foreign policy, and encourage terrorism rather than effectively combated it.” His opinion refers to abuse and torture, as well as the unlawful detention of inmates at the military prison that Amnesty International has called a “gulag of our times.” In 2009, Bernie voted against the proposals the Obama administration suggested for closing the prison. The bill was defeated with strong bipartisan support (90-6). Given Bernie’s human rights concerns regarding the facility, he voted against it because the plans did not address the human rights violations — including prisoners being held indefinitely without trial — that he and so many other Americans are most concerned about with regard to Guantánamo.

As a gunowning lefty Bernie voter, I’m confused why there’s always so much talk in the left about “universal background checks” every election. From my experience, that’s already a thing

I’m not here to say anybodies wrong. I’m just curious why this seems to be such a reoccurring stance politicians talk about.

Maybe it’s just in my state, but anytime I’ve gone to purchase a gun it’s a 20-30 minute process while I’m filling out paperwork and they are running my processing through government criminal background checks.

This is at big box stores. Local gun shops. And gun shows. Same deal every time.

So I’m just here to ask and learn, is it different in other states? I assumed it was a federal law and enforced country wide.

It’s really confusing to hear calls for back ground checks when I see that happen constantly here.
