Why ALL Americans should support Bernie Sanders.

#FeelTheBern  
 
Unless you are among the Top 1% of American Incomes, I don't see why anyone wouldn't agree with Bernie Sanders. If I won the lottery today I would still support Sen. Sanders.
If you're at all curious about what's so appealing about Bernie, why so many people are fired up about this obscure socialist from Vermont, just watch him speaking truth to power:

I rarely plug a TV show, but this one is fascinating. I learned how to make a book from scratch last night.
Next Saturday the show will demonstrate how to make basic tools with your bare hands out of things you find in nature.

How Fox News might have reported rulings ending laws banning "race-mixing"

Loving v. Virginia, 388 U.S. 1 (1967) was a landmark civil rights case in the United States Supreme Court. ending all race-based legal restrictions on marriage in the United States.

We have obviously re-defined marriage many, many times. The (anti-SSM marriage) arguments put forward under that flag,, demonstrated to be fundamentally about animus, malice,  etc., are merely the fear and loathing expressed by those too-long accustomed to getting their own way--through the tolerance and good will of the rest of us.

Bernie Sanders states once again that he will not run as a Third-Party Candidate 
Bernie Sanders has repeatedly reminded us that he will support whoever the Democratic nominee is. This is the right thing to do, because no matter who wins the nomination process, we have to be united to fight the pretty openly proto-fascist conservative Republicans. Any GOP POTUS would make the Bush/Cheney regime look pleasant by comparison.

Further, there is a certainly political calculus to this too. When Bernie wins the nomination, we are going to need all those Hillary, O'Malley, Webb, etc. supporters to stand with us. We simply cannot afford to burn bridges by signing pledges to reject anyone but Bernie. He wouldn't want that, and has said so openly. 

Also, watch out for right wing infiltrators that are only trying to cause division. Be like Bernie. Don't go negative. It's OK to point out contrasts, but stay focused on the issues and stay positive.

It is over a year until the election and very important that Democrats don't badmouth and trash other Democrats. We can sit back and enjoy watching the Republicans bash, trash, badmouth and destroy each other.

On the 50th anniversary of #Medicare  +Bernie Sanders calls for  #SinglePayer  healthcare
I am one of the people that have healthcare for the first time in their adult life thanks to the Affordable Care Act (and Minnesota's even better state version of it). Yet, it is clear that our work is not done. The ACA was a good first step, but to truly fix what ails our health care system, we need a Single Payer system. We already have one for seniors called Medicare, now all we have to really do is just remove the age cap on it and make it available to everyone.

#FeelTheBern   #HealthCareReform   #HealthCare   #Health  
 
Yes, Obamacare brought a significant improvement in U.S. health coverage, but we must keep moving forward!  It's way past time for the US to join the vast majority of developed nations in providing universal healthcare to its people.    http://goo.gl/2HLZz

Here's Bernie Sanders speaking on the 50th anniversary of Medicare on why it's time to have Medicare for all:  http://goo.gl/Iq0ftw

I'm afraid it's going to take a lot of time before America finally wakes up and does what's beneficial to all of it's citizens. And it's not the only "civilized" and "democratic" country dealing with the problem these days.
This problem actually seems to be escalating around the globe.
The rich hoarding more wealth and power, leaving the general population with less of the same. Roughly speaking.

Florida US Senate Candidate +Alan Grayson calls for #Medicare  to cover Eyes, Ears, and Teeth
Because, you know, seniors usually still have their eyes, ears, and teeth, so why not cover them?

Income of richest o.1% compared to the Top Marginal Tax Rate
Economics For Dummies: when the rich aren't paying their fair share of taxes, they gobble up an increasing amount of the wealth

#Economics   #Taxes   #TaxTheRich   #Politics   #FeelTheBern  
While the graph in my previous post compared the Top 0.1 percent in different countries, here I made a direct comparison between the US Top Marginal Tax Rate and the Top 0.1 percent income share since 1913. This time just focusing on the United States. {Click on the graph to take a closer look} Again the effect by the two World Wars is there but what I wanted to emphasize is the relationship between the share of income going to the v...

Planned Parenthood is Not Selling Baby Parts, You Right Wing Idiots
If conservatives actually examined the evidence impartially, and allowed the facts to shape their view of things, they would be liberals. There's a reason why cons constantly fall for pseudoscandals that later prove to be bullshit (birthers, acorn, etc.), it's because their brains are psychologically proven to be hardwired to just blindly accept the narrative dictated to them by a central authority figure.   https://www.psychologytoday.com/articles/200612/the-ideological-animal
