MSNBC and Pharm. companies display their overt corruption. We see you and we are going to change it all with our revolution.

This just happened on Hallie Jackson's show on MSNBC. Jeff Weaver was on the show (Bernie's campaign manager) and these were just some of the insanely biased questions she asked him: "Why doesn't Bernie have a plan like Kamala Harris to tax Wall Street for Medicare for All? No one will vote for him if he raises taxes." , "Bernie notably didn't prepare for the last debate, is the next debate going to be different?". Thankfully Weaver is sharp and shot back at both of those ridiculous statements: 1) Kamala, just as all the other candidates, have copied Bernie's M4A plan. His plan has always included taxing Wall Street, however Americans will also need to be taxed to pay for the plan or else it is not feasible. 2) Bernie did prepare what are you even saying?

The thing that disgusted me the most and moved me to make this post was how after Weaver was on, MSNBC played a Johnson and Johnson commercial. This commercial states how J&J are "curing AIDS, Cancer, and Depression and they care for Americans". This is the same Johnson and Johnson that manufactured the Opioid epidemic for profit (1). An epidemic that has cost innumerable lives, filled foster homes to capacity with America's next generation (2), and costs the U.S. healthcare and criminal justice systems $ 78.5 billion (3) each year. They don't understand that we see them. We see the truth. We see that their sociopathic corporations place profits before human lives. They also don't understand that their overt corruption and attempts to suppress Bernie only fuels the movement. They will understand when Bernie wins and the revolution has begun. There is much work to do, please do your part to help change our rotting society. Bernie can't do it alone.

Has anyone just not gotten their campaign stickers/merch?

I’ve donated a bunch of times the campaign has had a drive for stickers or Bernie’s books, and while that isn’t my main reason for donating, I wonder why I’ve never gotten any of them.

My address and everything is correct on ActBlue. I was wondering if anyone else has just not gotten anything they were supposed to, or if I have a political mailman intercepting stuff from the campaign (unlikely but possible).

Does anyone else feel some individuals in the Democratic Party identify as liberal, but their actions prove to be associated with conservatives?

I’ve seen so many comments from people claiming to be democrats, but show their true colors as conservatives. They say they are for liberal ideas, but when it comes down to actually pushing these ideas, many back off and find excuses. They just want to say and use liberal ideology almost as a mask/front, but when in reality their actual motives say otherwise. Ex) says they want to support lower income families or homeless, but encourages gentrification in their neighborhood for higher property value and don’t want shelters in their area.

From ageism, to corruption within the party, stereotypes, and being for big corporation control, it’s just insane to me how a group that’s suppose to stand for justice and equality really doesn’t. Just seems like if Trump didn’t mold the Republican Party to what it is today, I think many of these people would identify as Republican. These people fear being called racist, sexist etc. so they hide behind major liberal ideas.

Bernei needs to be more upfront about how his programs are going to be enacted and be direct with his answers. Only then can he stand out compared to politicians like Warren who try to veil their programs just so they seem “not so extreme”

In the debate, the moderator asked Bernie if he was going to raise taxes to help fund his programs, something no other candidate was asked, making it seem like only his programs would require a change in taxes. Regardless of how it was only targeted at him, he stumbled with his answers. He was not willing to directly say that,"Yes the programs will be paid for by increasing the taxes of everyone, but more for the rich than the poor." I believe that he needs to be more upfront about everything that his programs entail. This will make him seem like the honest one among a group of dishonest politicians who say anything and everything to get elected. Also, there will no longer be ground for criticizing his programs as "some socialist fairyland dream" and make them seem legitimate. He can also distinguish himself more from Warren (who he gets couched together with often) and expose how she has been advocating the same program in a sly manner just so she doesn't scare off people with irrational fear of a socialist takeover.

He should get the message of FDR out more and be more articulate in interviews and debates of how "other politicians want to enact the programs that he envisioned for America but without them costing a penny." RFK's answer when he was asked by a person from the crowd during his presidential run a out how his programs would be paid for also resonates. "From your pockets" was his simple yet profound honest answer.

If he does this, I believe it won't be difficult to topple all the phonies that share the stage with him.

Does anyone else wish Bernie was their grandpa (and also President)?

Does anyone else wish Bernie was their grandpa? He just seems like he’d be a good grandpa. His personality, his perspective and progressive view of the world, but also because he seems like he’d be loving and supportive.

Also I would like for him to be president.
