Winning over Warren Voters: Honey, not Vinegar… or “hook em with kindness”.

Donate and support us on Patreon! https://www.patreon.com/bePatron?c=1785147

It's no secret that Bernie and Warren do have at least some overlap, and with the recent "Bernie Surge", it seems inevitable that Bernie will pass Warren again in the national polls at some point in the not to distant future.

I know that feels good, and I know people have told us "Bernie should drop out" a lot since Warren has passed Bernie in the polls.. but think about how that felt.. did that make you want to change over to Warren? I know it didn't for me.

I just ask that we keep that in mind, we can win this thing… but we need to be the campaign that everybody feels moved to get on board with.

I personally will share the polls, but I won't rub them in peoples faces… for example.

I pretty much put the main point of my post in the title (catch flies with honey, not vinegar), but I just wanted to share this.

Together forward! Not me, US!

Looking for a clip/image “I don’t have beef with billionaires” – Warren

Donate and support us on Patreon! https://www.patreon.com/bePatron?c=1785147

Hey family. I saw an image of Warren stating, “I don’t have beef with billionaires” and Bernie saying after, “I do.” This was a few weeks ago and now I can’t find it anywhere.

It might have been during the debate. I didn’t watch the debates live and it seems access to the whole thing is limited. I can’t find a video or image of this exchange but I swear I’ve seen it on here. Does anyone know if this was an actual thing stated, was it just an edited image, or was it a dream I had??

Thank you friends, I love you all.

Just got a Twitter notification “Elizabeth Warren releases plan to fund Medicare for All”

I've only gotten notifications for Bernie when he fell in the shower, when he released his taxes, and when he had a heart attack. Seriously? I got nothing for his environmental plan, nothing for his housing plan, and really nothing substantial like that. But Warren gets a special notification sent out to twitter users like this? Come on

Twitter Wouldn’t Have Banned Political Ads if AOC Had Endorsed Warren (Which She Would Never)

So now that fans are making ads for candidates they love, and those ads are going viral, BAM! Door to the airwaves slams shut. Right. And will they also censor free speech about people getting excited to hear free concerts at rallies? This is just wrong. Corporations are people but people’s voices aren’t voices? Fix the first first and come talk to us about the second. This is China.

More Bernies Please & Case for Warren backup option

Donate and support us on Patreon! https://www.patreon.com/bePatron?c=1785147

Before you jump on me for being anti-Bernie, or Warren infiltrator, or Russian bot, or whatever – just hear me out.

I supported Bernie in 2016, and I am still with him now.

But one thing has been disturbing me as of late. When Berners are asked if they would support Warren, in the event of Bernie dropping out, they are saying no.

Which leads me to believe that it has become more about Bernie the man, than about furthering the anti-est progressive movement. I care about Bernie, and nobody has his decades-long track record. You literally will not find that politician – given how long he's been in politics, and how consistent he has been. But a movement cannot rest on the shoulders of one person.

So here's my message in a nutshell:

  1. Bernie should stay in and fight to the bitter end. And if the voters decide, he should win and lead the party. I would be very excited if that happened. Even if I have my doubts about him being able to win the general.
  2. If Bernie decided he couldn't continue the race, I hope Berners think long and hard about the prog movement, even as they mourn the loss of Bernie as their political leader.
  3. This movement cannot rest on the shoulders of one man. It must be laser focused on finding, vetting, developing, more Bernies! They won't have the decades-long track record. They might not have exactly the same views. And they will have to work much harder to win your trust.
    But if this movement is going to keep the momentum, and translate into more power and influence, we need more genuine, anti-est progressives in DNC, both houses, all levels of Gov, and in case we lose 2020, we need more candidates in 2024.
  4. I'm still not sure about Warren, but as I write this, I am leaning towards her being an acceptable backup to Bernie. I genuinely feel that she would be an effective progressive leader and President. She is wonky. She tries too hard. She can be annoying. She can flip-flop in places. And she is more compromising than Bernie. But there is no doubt she would be far more progressive than Obama was. Just look at her platform. Obama never would have touched many of those positions, even if he wanted to. She would be the first truly progressive President – even though not as hard-core as Bernie. She would be the first female President. And she would pave the way for more Progressivism at all levels of society. She would help to normalize that kind of Admin, that kind of platform, and so on. I don't like how she can flip flop in places. I don't like some of her votes. I don't like some of her instincts/impulses. But I believe she would still be a strong leader and President. I don't agree at all, that she's just a fake and will become an Est centrist if she wins the primary and/or WH. Or that MSM, Wall Street, Elites etc are getting behind her. They aren't. They are actually very concerned about her winning. People have a right to be suspicious, but there's a lot of paranoia going on in the Bernie camp too. And keep in mind, all of this is only if Bernie drops out or loses. I hope Berners will seriously contemplate what staying at home could result in. You love to make a case against Warren. But you rarely make a comparative case including Biden/Buttigieg/Trump. This is revealing for me. You are so invested in Bernie, that you refuse to consider that a backup option could still be much better than the alternatives. There isn't much emotional or mental flexibility there imo. That Berners would stay at home, and likely hand the primary to Biden or Butti. And leave the general a toss up between the nightmare that is Trump, or the slap in the face that is more Dem, establishment, centrist bullshit.

Thanks for listening.
