I am posting this to declare my support to you guys!

I am a housing activist in Europe fighting against racist privatisation housing politics. Activism takes all of my time, so I haven't been able to phonebank for Bernie. However, when time comes to getting the vote out in Iowa and NH, I will do my damn best to help out (as long as there isn't something really urgent happening in our housing fight).

While I believe fighting with one's own community is the most important thing to do, I also recognise that the big pressure that Capital Funds and landlords are exerting to privatise public housing is not going to end until the US puts a stop to their limitless power. US politics have a huge effect of the whole world. The neoliberal wave that Regan in the US and Thatcher in the UK have put into force has affected the whole world.

So I will be helping you guys out, and I may even organise a phonebank party and get my friend to join. Your fight is just too important that we all have to join forces to help Bernie win.

I want to vote for Bernie, but I don’t think I agree with raising the minimum wage to $15/hr. Can someone explain to me how the positive effects of raising the minimum wage will outweigh the negatives?

The way I see it, raising the minimum wage significantly will have more negative impact than positive in our current economy.

The first issue being that large corporations aren't going to take a pay cut to implement it unless they are forced to, i.e. they will pass the cost off onto the consumer as much as possible. General cost of living will go up for everyone as prices are increased to compensate for lost profits. This would hit hardest for people that are already making $ 15 or more hourly and are still struggling. Someone who makes exactly 15$ an hour right now surely won't be getting a raise just because they're now making minimum wage.

Second, loss of jobs. I imagine if Bernie gets elected many businesses that employ entry level workers will begin preparing for an increasing minimum wage by shrinking their work force to only essential employees, many might lose jobs.

And third, the impact on small business. Many many small businesses struggle to get by as it is. Large corporations have more cushion and will survive, but a significant increase in labor costs could really hurt small businesses and startups.

Anyway, thanks for your input. Big fan of Bernie and his healthcare plan, also a big fan of his proposed speculation tax, I just would like to know how the minimum wage increase is proposed to work.

As a Libertarian, I think I’m voting for Bernie. I don’t agree with his entire platform and the thought of having to register as a Democrat to vote in the primaries has me throwing up in my mouth a little but I think he can actually make some significant change and that’s exciting!

My two issues really are gun control and taxes but to be honest, I see him as a mostly positive change in the right direction. Our version of capitalism at this point is so tilted to favor the wealthy, I feel that even if he accomplished half of what he wants to, we would end up with a much more fair system.

There is no first amendment without the second amendment. Slowly strip away the second amendment and you will see the first amendment follow. Mass shootings are absolutely a mental heath issue and we need to apply our efforts and resources towards helping sick people manage their illnesses.

Bernie 2020!

Ive never voted. I never thought i would ever see a candidate that i wanted to run this country. After looking at the things Berine Sanders has done consistently. And how he has never changed even since the beginning, I want this man to make the changes i know he will do his best to do. He is truly an amazing human being.

Bernie may lose my vote (Bernie Tax)

Went to the BernieTax website( BernieTax). After I typed in my information, it said we would lose ~$ 1,500 a year in disposable income. I'm a teacher and my wife is an office manager. Student loan and house payments are always on time. Taxes paid in full and filed early. We're as middle class as it gets, and I feel like we're being punished for it, based on the above site. $ 1,500 is a hard pill to swallow when stacked on top of all the other taxes we have to pay =/
