THIS IS NOT A DRILL: There are less than 100 days left until the primaries, we need to make sure that we’re doing everything we can to get Bernie into the white house.

tl;dr Make sure that you're putting in the work to make your voice heard. The media isn't going to give Bernie fair coverage so we have to do our best to spread the word, we need to make sure that everyone knows what Bernie is about, and how much support he has. Volunteer for the campaign, donate, phonebank, go door to door, tell everyone you know about Bernie, make sure that they're all registered to vote. Go set up a booth somewhere and talk to anyone who wants to. Even if it's just upvotes, likes and retweets, this is the time to put in work and every little bit helps. Even just subscribing and following all of Bernie's social media accounts helps. So whatever you choose to do, get out there and let them hear you loud and clear!

This is getting down to crunch time and we need to act like it. We're in the home stretch and we need to put in extra work spreading the word and doing whatever it takes. Make sure to do something every day that helps the campaign, even if it's just checking reddit to see if there are any Bernie threads that you can check. Do your best to correct misinformation and fight back against smears. Post comments to show people info that they might not see otherwise, like how much support Bernie really has, how he has most of the youth vote, how he has a record-breaking number of donations, all that good stuff. Post news articles and opinion pieces and any other links you think would be good. Ideally there would be at least one Bernie post on the front page every day.

But if you're up for it, volunteering is probably the best thing you can do. No matter where you are, you can phonebank (and text) to spread the word, even if you're not in the US. Due to our silly electoral process, if you're in an early primary state like Iowa or New Hampshire than you can have a bigger impact than most people, and you can make a bigger difference by going door to door or setting up a booth.

I know that there are a lot of people who aren't doing as much as they can, but I also know that many of you are working incredibly hard and I'm not trying to diminish that. Keep up the good work 🙂

Are there any good arguments against the criticisms of Bernie’s Federal Jobs Guarantee?

Donate and support us on Patreon!

Hi everyone! I've recently been cycling through the Sanders, Yang, and Warren platforms. Not sure who I'll vote for yet, but I think some compelling arguments have been made against Bernie's Federal Jobs guarantee that I haven't seen addressed. Just hoping you guys can offer me a perspective I haven't seen, and clear up any possible confusion I might have 🙂

  1. What if you don't like the job the government assigns you? When you're at the point of being assigned a job by the gov, it seems you have no other options.
  2. What if you're a bad worker? This is intended to combat unemployment, so I'm assuming it would be very hard for a person to be fired. And having a bunch of unproductive workers on staff is harmful to the programs they are a part of.
  3. This is a bit of a multi-parter. What are the long-term prospects of such a federal program, when the data shows that 47% of total employment in the United States is at “high risk” of automation (i.e. in an occupation with at least a 70% chance of automation) in the next decade or two? What is the purpose of hiring humans to perform jobs where AI/robots are cheaper and more efficient? What jobs is Bernie envisioning being available that wouldn't be more easily and cheaply handled by private contractors? And thinking long term, would there even be enough jobs available a decade or two down the line for such a large program to be useful?
  4. Why create more complicated bureaucracy, rather than just giving people the resources they need and allowing them to make their own decisions (such as with a UBI)? It seems that under Sanders' Jobs and housing plans, people in poverty are no longer capable of individualistic decision-making (at least in terms of their core needs, such as jobs and housing), and most of their life is at the mercy of the federal government.

Sorry if any of these have already been debunked; just looking to ensure I have all the information and points of view before I make any final decisions 🙂

Go talk to people there is a lot of people waiting until the field narrows.

From my experience doing community canvassing people haven’t decided yet or waiting until later to decide. For every person we bring to the polls that that doesn’t normally vote in the primaries is one more person that will help prove the polls wrong.

IOWANS: Please make social media pages for these cities/universities if you live there, we’re missing presence.

Donate and support us on Patreon!

I started making a list of cities that don't have "X City for Bernie Sanders" or "X City for Bernie 2020" pages on facebook/instagram, but it's better to list the ones that do simply because so many don't. So if you live in or are from a city in Iowa that ISN'T one of these cities, please make a facebook group/page:

  • Des Moines
  • Quad Cities (I still think Davenport could have its own page)
  • North Liberty

Similarly, if you went to a college/university in Iowa that ISN'T one of these, please make a facebook group/page:

  • University of Iowa (Hawkeyes for Bernie FB, uiowastudentsforbernie IG)
  • Iowa State University (ISU for Bernie FB)

If you make a page, let me know, and I can help grow it and get the people in who join to be more involved and engaged with the campaign. ALSO – if you're not from Iowa, you can just check facebook and see if your hometown/current town/university/college has a page, and do the same thing. This is an easy way to collect people in one place so we can tell them to volunteer, register, and get out to vote.
