If you could ask Bernie a question at a town hall, what would your question be?

Here is mine:

My brother took his own life due to the financial collapse of 2008, hit with the triple whammy of being downsized, having a home loan that was underwater and being unable to defer his student loan payments any longer.

Needless to say I am angry at the people who perpetrated the fraud that caused the financial collapse and I was looking forward to the Obama administration prosecuting, fining and imprisoning them. It didn’t happen.

The trump administration has committed crimes against humanity, treason and obstruction of justice just as a beginning of a list of their transgressions.

If elected, what will you do to hold these monsters accountable? Can you promise that you won’t pull a Ford and let all of these jackals free?

As a different method of explaining the absurdity of total college costs to the older generations, would anyone be able to tell me what the average price of a car would be today if such priced had risen at the same rate as college tuition over the past 30+ years?

I feel like general inflation numbers don't do it justice. Maybe it would be helpful to have such a statistic on hand when people try to trivialize the exploding price of receiving a college education. I would like to be able to say, "how would you feel if your car cost $ X," but would also be open to other price comparisons that describe the same idea

Edit: *fat fingers… meant 'prices' not 'priced' in the title

Bernie is willing to go on Fox News when Warren won’t – these different approaches show why Bernie would be a more effective President and also more likely to beat Trump.

I read the other day that Warren said she wouldn't go on Fox News, calling it a "hate for profit" racket. You know, I agree with that. Fox News sucks.

But you also know what? Fox News is one of the most popular news channels in America. Whether we like it or not, millions of voters watch it. And as that post about Bernie speaking at Liberty University said, it is important to go out and talk to people with whom you disagree. You can't change minds by only preaching to the choir.

So while going on Fox News may not help Bernie win the Democratic primary, it definitely helps him 1) win the general election against Trump, and 2) change minds that need to be changed. We cannot change America without changing minds. Bernie is clearly the best candidate for changing minds.

If the Democrats want to beat Trump, they will nominate Sanders. Bernie will win in states Democrats haven't won in 50 years. He will rewrite the red-blue state divide and usher in Democratic dominance for the next 20 years.

How would Medicare for All affect businesses (big and small)?

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

A lot of the messaging on Medicare for All is about how much it will save the consumers. What I haven't heard much about is how it affects business. Would businesses pay into Medicare for All the way they do currently with private insurers? I'm curious what the economic impact would be on business especially small businesses that struggle to provide insurance. If Medicare for All would save them money, this seems like something that should be talked about more often.

Important: we need to show sample estimates of how much people in diff income groups would save/pay under Medicare4All vs how much they currently pay

I believe this is crucial for the policy platform to gain popularity despite all the media/pundit/Democratic establishment obstacles and smokescreens and misrepresentations. And we need to do this fast – to win the battle of ideas and policy early.

It'll also make it easier for our volunteers to help inform voters of how they'd benefit. If voters see it before getting in touch with volunteers, well, it's easier for us to deal with an informed voter – a more reliable voter who won't switch sides easily.

It'll also be of help in getting republican and independent voters on our side – and make it easier for them to make up their minds. And easier for us to convince them that not only will M4À make their insurance cheaper, but it will make healthcare costs cheaper as a whole too.

We just need some samples of, say, people from 6-7 income groups, how much they pay annually currently under pri and how much they'd have to pay under M4A single payer.

Can someone on the campaign team publicise that and all of us make it go viral?

Unpopular opinion: The general would be a cakewalk for Bernie. Upwards of 35 to 40 states would be “blue” for him and here is the reason why I’m saying that

Because everyone needs to bust ass during the primary (donate/volunteer/network/discredit false naratives, slander, smears, etc.).

The establishment knows that Bernie as the democratic nominee is going to be the end of a lot of the corruption that has gone on. Loopholes will close, regulation will be re-instated, and people will begin to gain the power, influence, and representation that they've been losing year by year to the point of being entirely powerless now.

However, we have to win the primary. Trump has all but already lost the general. We just need Bernie as the nominee and ever DNC and corporate operative under the sun is going to try to stop that.

!. Expect concern trolling–>Bernie has to win

  1. Expect attacks–>Bernie has to win

  2. Expect "I'll vote for anyone against Trump" tactics–>Bernie has to win

  3. Expect "Don't criticize other candidates"–>Bernie has to win

  4. Expect deceptive polls, data, overlooked shenanigans by the media–>Bernie has to win

The fight is now and, if we don't win the democratic primary, then nothing changes in the corrupt political system and nothing likely will Bernie is our best shot at transformative change and the country and people will suffer even more if we don't succeed.
