Just posted this on Facebook to a boomer friend. They are scared to lose to Trump. We need them.

In response to this comment:

"Forced to choose between a Democratic Senate and Trump vs Biden and a Republican senate I will howl in agony. We need to pile high and hard to achieve both wins. Warren for VP might be a good idea."

I wrote the following:

It saddens me to see that people are already resigned to Biden being the nominee. My generation overwhelmingly supports Bernie Sanders. He won the under-30 vote on Tuesday with 60% of the vote, compared to Biden's 17%. Once California finishes counting Bernie will be trailing Biden by just a handful of delegates (a similar place to where Barack Obama was against Clinton in 2008). Bernie is actually still on track to win if he is able to maintain his current margins over what he got four years ago (source: https://preview.redd.it/ap21oehakwk41.gif?format=mp4…). Biden’s only advantage is that people are starting to believe he is inevitable, when two weeks ago he looked to be almost out of the running. Most of the country still has not voted. They have not seen the two finalists debate 1-on-1 where the distinctions can be highlighted most clearly.

Democrats have been putting their idealism on hold election after election out of fear of losing to the right, yet the so-called moderates have lost nearly every time. Joe Biden is Gore, Kerry, and Hillary Clinton. There is no enthusiasm behind him, and Trump is the incumbent. This is 2004 all over again.

I know you are both deeply thoughtful and caring people. But if my generation cannot garner the support of the idealists in yours, we are doomed to failure – not just in this election, but in the next and the next. Please consider supporting Bernie. We need you.

IF you find this helpful I will be happy. But I would not recommend using facebook as your primary outreach. It's simply a toxic environment. We need everyone to call their parents, their grandparents, their aunts and uncles. We need to reach out to the older folks, because they are scared, and fear turns people into misguided pragmatists. Please please always be respectful of their views. But remember the number 1 reason people support Joe Biden: fear of losing.

Why Surprising Numbers of Republicans Vote for Bernie Sanders? Social Security, free college, breaking up the big banks, aren’t “progressive” policies, they’re just common sense, and 60 years ago they would have put Bernie Sanders smack dab in the mainstream of my father’s Republican Party.

I’m half Hispanic but didn’t formally learn Spanish until adolescence. As someone who is SUPER self-conscious and anxious about my grasp on the Spanish language, I took the leap today and registered to Text For Bernie en español (since they need more volunteers). Here’s to winning the latinx vote!!

When people ask how can we afford universal healthcare remind them that the UK implemented single payer universal healthcare only three years after they were devastated by World War II

If the UK can implement universal healthcare only a few years after they were on the frontlines of the most destructive war in human history then the US, which is going through an economic boom, can implement universal healthcare too. The civilian population of the UK was still on war rations when they got universal healthcare.
