It might not seem like a fair fight

Bernie Sanders for President

Here is the truth at the heart of this campaign: we will never be able to change a corrupt political system by taking its money.

Hillary Clinton receives a tremendous amount of money from Wall Street. This morning, Christine from Brookline, Massachusetts contributed $3 to our political revolution because she’s had enough of billionaires buying elections. Health care and pharmaceutical companies have contributed millions of dollars to the Clinton campaigns. Thomas, a laid-off welder from Ohio with no health care contributed a few bucks because he believes in Bernie.

On the surface it might not seem like a fair fight, but when people come together anything is possible. And the response since Bernie’s challenge to help our campaign raise $40 million in the month of February has been incredible. These are all real contributions from people helping us reach our goal. Add yours before our midnight FEC fundraising deadline.

Real contributions from Bernie supporters helping us reach our goal
Contribute

With Super Tuesday tomorrow, we are entering the most important stretch of this campaign. Our opponent’s largest super PAC has really stepped up their spending after receiving more than $15 million in Wall Street money during their final fundraising report of 2015.

But what we are going to demonstrate in this election is that their enormous wealth and power is their weakness. When we hit our goal tonight, we are going to send a powerful message to those who have yet to vote that we have what it takes to defeat the billionaire class in this election. That’s why we have to ask:

Can Bernie count on you to make a $50 contribution for the final FEC fundraising deadline before Super Tuesday? You can do that here.

Every single contribution we receive before midnight should be seen as a declaration of support for the values we share. People should not underestimate us.

An Unmistakable Message

Bernie Sanders for President

When I first decided to run for president, my greatest fear was that if I were to run a poor campaign or did not do well, that it would be a setback not just for me, but for the ideas driving our campaign.

A lot of people said we had no chance. Our ideas are too big. The billionaire class is too powerful.

But we kept at it. We came to a virtual tie in Iowa, had a big win in New Hampshire, and made huge progress in Nevada.

What you’re doing is working. Every contribution, every phone call and every door knocked is bringing our political revolution one step closer to winning the White House.

Now there’s another big deadline, and it’s Monday night: the final FEC reporting deadline before Super Tuesday. It’s a huge opportunity to show the strength of our movement.

Please make a contribution to our campaign and send an unmistakable message that you have had ENOUGH of the corrupt billionaire class buying our candidates and elections.

 

There are twenty-six primaries and caucuses over the next three weeks, with thousands of delegates at stake. We’re up against a billionaire class that doesn’t want us to succeed, and they’re willing to do anything it takes to stop our movement.

I’m so glad to have you at our side, Blane.

In solidarity,

Bernie Sanders

 

 

 

Senator Bernie Sanders Speaks about the High Cost of Prescription Drugs

Senator Bernie Sanders Speaks about the High Cost of Prescription Drugs

Senator Bernie Sanders speaks about how he was one of the first organizers of a group of senior citizens, mostly women who were dealing with breast cancer, who traveled to Canada to buy prescription drugs. Senator Sanders makes a very good point by asking the question, why should a drug manufactured in the United States cost ten times more than it does in Canada.

As anyone who has followed Senator Bernie Sanders can tell you, he has always been a strong advocate for lower prices of prescription drugs. Big pharmaceutical companies (big Pharma) is actually contributing a large amount of funding to his opponent, Hillary Clinton.

What’s in the Bernie Sanders says makes a lot of sense. He articulates his point very well, if you take the time to watch this video. Senator Bernie Sanders advocacy in favor of lowering the ridiculous and exploitative high price of prescription drugs, imposed on people by big Pharma, is exemplary. His advocacy is a perfect example of how consistent he has been on advocating for consumers.

Everyone knows that big Pharma hates Senator Bernie Sanders because he is a direct threat to the gravy train that they presently enjoy. Senator Bernie Sanders is elected president of the United States, they know very well that this gravy train will stop.

The Clinton campaign is nervous

Bernie Sanders for President

 

One of the ways you can get a sense of our momentum and the nervousness within the Clinton campaign is by seeing that they are now using massive amounts of super PAC money, funded largely by Wall Street, against our campaign.

One of those super PACs raised $15 million from Wall Street and the financial industry in the last half of 2015, and is now spending millions of dollars to try and tip the balance of a number of upcoming primaries and caucuses in Hillary Clinton’s favor. And just yesterday alone they reported spending nearly another $500,000.

I don’t have a super PAC, and I won’t go around asking millionaires and billionaires for money. I am humbled that this campaign is funded by more than 4 million contributions made by working people who have had ENOUGH of the billionaire class buying our candidates and elections.

But I am here to tell you that if we are going to win this primary and the White House, we’re going to have to stand together against the influence of Hillary Clinton’s super PACs in this race.

Contribute to our campaign to help us win on Super Tuesday and as a way of saying you have had ENOUGH of the billionaire class buying our candidates and elections.

What is happening in these final days before Super Tuesday is that in state after state, the gap is narrowing or we are now forging ahead. Three recent national polls actually show us in the lead. The reason we have so much momentum, and the reason we are doing so well, is because people know that Washington is too busy representing the interests of wealthy campaign contributors to worry about the middle class.

We are going to change that through this campaign, and through our political revolution. Add your contribution here.

Bernie Sanders: A Consistent Viewpoint for Many Years

Bernie Sanders: A Consistent Viewpoint for Many Years

Then Representative Bernie Sanders speaking out and against and condemning the first Persian Gulf War (1/17/1991). Unfortunately, most of the ill conditions that he talks about are still very much with us. This shows how consistent he has been over the years. It also shows that he has a good grasp of foreign policy, despite his critics who say otherwise.

Bernie Sanders has also been consistent in his viewpoint for many years. He has never supported the idea that far too many Americans seem to support; going to war is a practical solution to a problem. It seems that most Americans a raise are raised with what I call a “gunslinger mentality” that usually never accomplishes anything other than to bring pain and misery to others. Nothing tangible is ever accomplished with violence. I could never figure out why so many Americans seem to think the only way to solve a problem is taking up arms and killing other human beings. He is a refreshing breath of fresh air in his pacifist ideas.

Yet, I still think that Bernie Sanders would still keep this nation secure. He would just do so by using diplomacy first. However, if he was ever pushed into a corner by any country that tried to harm us, he would go to war if necessary. However, too many people in this country mistake Bernie Sanders antiwar ideals as weakness, despite the fact that they are his strengths. It takes a lot more strength to negotiate a solution to a problem than it does to kill the person causing the problem.

After all, it always seems easier to solve a problem with a weapon than a pen or by having a discussion with whomever you may have a difference with. This is just one of many reasons that I am very enthusiastic about the prospect of Bernie Sanders becoming president of the United States.

An Uncomfortable Truth about Donald Trump

Bernie Sanders for President

 

Given the state of the Republican presidential race, it’s time to acknowledge a very uncomfortable truth: Donald Trump is probably going to be the Republican nominee.

The question for Democrats is simple. Who has the best chance to defeat Trump? And by any objective measure, the answer is Bernie Sanders. In almost every recent head-to-head poll against Trump, Bernie leads by a wide margin while Hillary Clinton either trails or is within the margin of error. Take a look at these recent polling averages:

Huffington Post Average of Recent Polls
Sanders: 51% to Trump: 41%
Clinton: 48% to Trump: 44%

We have momentum, we have one less pledged delegate than Hillary Clinton, and we’re closing the gap in the national polls. But with 26 primaries and caucuses in the next three weeks, Bernie needs you now:

Contribute to our campaign today. It could mean the difference between victory and defeat — between taking back our country from the billionaire class, or President Donald Trump.

 

The truth is, it’s going to take more than establishment politics and establishment thinking to beat Donald Trump.

But together, we are building something unprecedented. That is why we’re doing so well in the polls, and why we’ve seen grassroots enthusiasm unmatched by any candidate on either side of this primary. Only Trump comes close. And that is why what we are building is what will be required to defeat him.

Bernie Sanders Committing Civil Disobedience – 1963

Bernie Sanders Committing Civil Disobedience – 1963

This video shows Senator Senator Sanders committing civil disobedience in 1963. Hopefully, this video will lay to rest the rumors, started by supporters of Hillary Clinton that Senator Sanders actually was not a part of the civil rights movement, as he says he was. I believe Senator Sanders.

Despite that many notable members of the civil rights movement, most notably Rep. John Lewis, himself a key player in the civil rights movement, says that he does not remember Senator Sanders as being a part of the movement. This is a totally ludicrous statement by Rep. Lewis. The civil rights movement, as anyone who has studied the history knows, was huge. It also contained many people who were not African-Americans. There is no way that Congressman Lewis would have remembered everyone who was involved in the civil rights movement.

In a movement as big as the civil rights movement was, how is it that Rep John Lewis would try to make us believe that he remembers everyone involved in the movement.  On the other hand, Congressman Jim Clyburn of South Carolina also says that he remembers  Senator Sanders’ involvement in the summer rights movement, even though he supports Hillary Clinton. Senator Sanders has also been endorsed by both Harry Belafonte and Spike Lee. In fact, Senator Sanders has been endorsed by a number of African-American celebrities

My helping to cast these aspersions on Bernie Sanders, Rep. Lewis is obviously guilty of playing partisan politics, and shows himself to me an obvious supporter of Hillary Clinton. As someone who has great respect for Congressman Jim Clyburn, I am quite appalled that he would take such a part in mind to downgrade Bernie Sanders to the point of almost calling him a liar. Congressman Clyburn is better than that, or at least I thought he was.

The best thing that he could do would be would be to tell the truth, and just say that he doesn’t remember all of the details about whether Senator Sanders was involved in the movement.
