The day has finally arrived! Bernie Sanders has announced that he's running for president, to save the country and the Democratic party. He's a brave man with a big heart, a sharp mind and unshakeable morals, the kind of person we've always wanted to support. And unlike any other candidate, there's no doubt he's on our side. He might just be the only politician in Washington I really trust, even though I won't always agree with him.
distraught has put up a wonderful action diary quoting Bernie's strong, unambiguous, bullshit-free stands on the most important issues of our time. Links to Bernie's campaign page are there:
Bernie 2016: Volunteer link, Issues Page, petition to end Citizens United, Donate, etc.
I'd like to invite members of this community who support Bernie Sanders to join me in donating to his campaign. To give you a sweetener, I will match the first $500 in donations you make in this diary. It's a 2-for-1, folks!
Contribute right here!
Join the Campaign!
