This issue has personal relevance for me.  I'm super-glad to support a candidate who didn't need to "evolve" to support my right to marry my sweetheart.

Don't get me wrong, I'm glad that Obama did evolve, and has turned out to be an excellent advocate for LGBT rights.  I'm seeing progress in my lifetime that I frankly never expected to see.  But to have a candidate that has recognized me as an equal human being for, well, forever....it feels really good.

Not only does +Bernie Sanders support marriage equality, he has been doing so for 50+ years! How many other politicians do you know who are like that? Special shot-out to +National LGBTQ Task Force.

Bernie Sanders recognizes that real family values are those that serve to love and protect the LGBTQ members of our nation. There is never a good reason to punish humans for their sexual orientation or gender identity. These people deserve the same rights as everyone else – including the right to adopt children and raise their own families.
Bernie Sanders has been consistent in his belief that the LGBTQ community deserves equal rights, and has long supported them.

The United States of America is a facing a huge turning point in racial justice and +Bernie Sanders is leading the way. Learn about how racial equality, economic equality, and legal equality are all closely related. Special shot-out to the +Center for American Racial Equality (CARE).

We need to make sure we eliminate all forms of systemic and institutional racism – especially for African Americans and Latinos. We must reform our incredibly skewed criminal justice system and combat racial wage discrepancies perpetuated by unethical corporate executives.
Bernie has long worked to address intrinsic and explicit racism from multiple angles.

+David Bee​ And that's as it should be. The rights of people are meaningless. We live in a Corporate Fascist State. The will of the Corporation must be accepted. They are the source of our jobs, our economic power through salaries, and have the power over whether we live or die relative to the cost of insurance. People. Lol. If you need anything, beg. Maybe the corporation will throw you a bone.

End Legalized Bribery
There is a cancer eating away at our political system: it is the corruption that is caused by corporations and billionaires buying politicians. 

Bernie Sanders is the only candidate for president who is clearly and passionately talking about putting an end to this "legalized bribery".  

Check it out!

Well Worth Reading
Cautionary tale:  This is how right-wing media uses "racial politics" to divide people, and destroy activists who are fighting for criminal justice reform.  Don't fall into their trap (like CNN did)!

#IsupportShaunKing   #ShaunKing   #BlackLivesMatter   #CriminalJusticeReform  
The right's campaign to take down a Black Lives Matter leader is transparently bogus. So why did CNN take the bait?

Trump and Sanders:  They're both 'populists', so what's the difference?

There's a lot of chatter in the media these days, about how Bernie Sanders and Donald Trump are appealing to the same dissatisfaction that Americans have with government.  So what's the difference between these two guys?  Charles P. Pierce of Esquire breaks it down for us:   http://goo.gl/vIlBoS

"It is not enough to claim that both men are "populists" or that they are both appealing to some amorphous general dissatisfaction with "government." First of all, the only problem Sanders has with government is that it hasn't done enough to fix a rigged financial system and to stop the erosion of a viable middle class. The problem Trump has with government is that he's not running it. One is asking for a revival of grassroots democratic activism. The other is appealing for applause. One campaign's vision is a guy knocking on doors. The second campaign's vision is a strongman on a balcony. One is LaFollette. The other is Peron or, at best, Berlusconi. The first is the way democracy is supposed to work. The second is how democracy always manages to con itself."

Well said!

Bernie Sanders, taking his message of fairness to Columbia, South Carolina.

Bernie had two rallies on Friday in South Carolina. He could have easily called it a day, but nope. After the two rallies, he wanted to give callers in South Carolina the chance to ask him questions directly.

Check out the Q & A session here ☛ https://goo.gl/vhIeSW 

Thanks to C-SPAN for live streaming the rally, and hosting the Q & A session.   
Go Bernie, Go!

This whole idea about a politician caring about someone besides himself is very disquieting. The idea is revolutionary and it scares me. Not.

Time for an excellent civics lesson courtesy of +Ole Olson
 
The info you need to defeat the S-word attack on Bernie Sanders
Brace yourselves. The better +Bernie Sanders does in upcoming polls, the more the rabid right wing nut jobs are going to shift their fear, hatred, and lies from Hillary to Bernie. We know these attacks are coming. We've seen their playbook. Get educated so you can properly debunk these conservative liars before when they swarm in!

1.  Right wingers conditioned by conservative propaganda (Fox, Rush, Redstate, etc.) will never understand the difference. They think anything "government" is the same as "socialism". Mock their ignorance by pointing out that public schools, roads, fire departments, the military, National Parks, the Postal Service, libraries, farm subsidies, social security, the VA, medicare, NASA, law enforcement, etc. would all fit under their broad definition of "socialism". Think about how disastrous it would be if we let them privatize/profitize those too.

They can all move to Somalia if they really hate all public services that much:  http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7QDv4sYwjO0

If these things are called "socialist", we are all socialists:  http://imgur.com/a/q4JXD


2.  Despite the labels and fear mongering, Bernie's positions all enjoy broad support with the American public.  America's Views Align Surprisingly Well With Those of "Socialist" Bernie Sanders  http://www.motherjones.com/politics/2015/05/senator-bernie-sanders-policy-platform-presidential-campaign

Sanders’s positions are quite mainstream from the point of view of the stances of the American public in general  http://www.juancole.com/2015/05/mainstream-bernie-sanders.html

Many of Bernie's stances on the issues received 70% support or more  http://www.salon.com/2015/07/11/america_is_ready_for_socialism_massive_majorities_back_bernie_sanders_on_the_issues_and_disdain_donald_trump/


3. Bernie does not want to abolish capitalism.  He describes himself as a Democratic Socialist, but his policies are actually more on par with Social Democracy like Nordic Countries (Norway, Sweden, Denmark, Finland, and Iceland) where life is free and good:  https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Nordic_model

Social Democracy vs. Democratic Socialism
 http://liamchingliu.wordpress.com/2012/12/21/social-democracy-vs-democratic-socialism/

Stop Calling Bernie Sanders a Socialist! The Vermont senator is a "democratic socialist"—and yes, there's a difference  http://www.newrepublic.com/article/121680/bernie-sanders-democratic-socialist-not-just-socialist

A solid video that describes the differences between Socialism, Democratic Socialism, and Social Democracy:  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kVgrirpu0Ns&feature=youtu.be&t=2m41s


4. Deregulated corporate Capitalism has failed America. Everything we feared about Communism, that we would lose our houses and savings and be forced to labor eternally for meager wages with no voice in the system has come true under capitalism  http://twitter.com/OccupyWallSt/status/447770699919142912/photo/1

Bernie describes the disaster of unfettered "cowboy" capitalism http://youtu.be/ktbOOKOSQJw?t=19s

Deregulation caused the Great Bush Recession:  http://www.nytimes.com/2009/12/14/opinion/14krugman.html


5. Wealth Inequality has turned the American Dream into a nightmare.  Something MUST be done: Wealth Inequality is far worse than Americans realize  http://www.youtube.com/watch?&v=QPKKQnijnsM

From 1935-1980 70% of the income gains in America went to the "poorest" 90%  http://www.stateofworkingamerica.org/who-gains/#/?start=1935&end=1980  Since 1980, 100% of the income gains have gone to the richest 10% http://www.politifact.com/truth-o-meter/statements/2015/jan/13/elizabeth-warren/warren-average-family-bottom-90-percent-made-more-/

400 Americans have more wealth than half of all Americans combined  http://www.politifact.com/wisconsin/statements/2011/mar/10/michael-moore/michael-moore-says-400-americans-have-more-wealth-/
