Dear Democratic Underground for Bernie... signed Bernie Sanders US Senator

Last edited Wed Oct 14, 2015, 08:43 PM - Edit history (1)


This has been sitting in my email since Oct. 2. I missed it thanks to my dementia. I'm truly sorry for the delay. Please forgive me.

This is for every DUer that Supports Bernie. This isn't just for donations as you can plainly see.

Handing out flyers, hosting little get togethers, phone calls, word of mouth, baking cookies, etc.

We also have three contacts on Bernie's upper staff for communication.

You ALL earned this.

Enjoy,

OS

17. And even if Bernie has a lot on his plate, and might have had his staff write this,

it shows a fantastic sense of organization, follow-up, and responsiveness.

I'm sure the Hillary/republican super-pacs also have ways of telling their rich friends how much they appreciate the $100,000++ contribution. Maybe a nice dinner/drinks or a quid-pro-quo.

The thing about Bernie's supporters is that they don't expect to be given ambassador-ships or served caviar in some invite-only venue. All of us know that what we are giving is because we believe in Bernie and his message.

Steve - it's been great knowing you during my limited time on DU. I hope there will be lots more interactions in the future.

29. This confirms that he's been listening to us the people!!! So awesome in my book...

 

As noted in this earlier DU post where I reference my earlier platform suggestions I put for Bernie around the day he announced running, I had wondered how much his campaign might have looked at that post and other posts here to help build the things he was working on for all of us, when he subsequently espoused a war tax provision for the wealthy that I had put forth as an issue recently and even many years earlier.

http://www.democraticunderground.com/10026841834#post4

With this letter here, I think it all but confirms that this is a grass roots campaign that REALLY counts on us being a part of that government that is supposed to work for us! Just love Bernie and those on his campaign staff!

20. 1st Post here in DU

This is my first ever post on DU. Usually just lurking as I do on Reddit. But just wanted to post that I made a contribution to Sen. Bernie Sanders campaign through the above link.

I was excited about HRC for President 2016 until I discovered Sen. Bernie Sanders and what he's about here on DU and I've been following him ever since. Even went to his Dallas Rally and convinced my wife to go; sit behind him on stage and be able to shake his hand twice (It was awesome!).

This is going to be exciting! Bernie Sanders for President 2016!

32. Does his communications staff read DU?

I posted a few comments on his FB page about his debate performance. I support him 100%. But he needs to explain his Congressional gun control votes, in person, as a statement on his web site. People should get information directly from him and not from distorted press reports or Hillary saying he voted 5x for the Brady Bill. These gun bills are complex, and I trust him enough to know he had good reasons for those votes.

He also needs to put in more time for debate prep. Most of the time, he was very good with his answers but seemed to have been caught by surprise by at least two occasions: (1) when Hillary went after him on gun control, (2) when asked about how he would handle the Syria-Putin problem.

I really want him to win. Really really want him to win.

37. THANX For Sharing This OS, You & I Have ALWAYS Seen

eye to eye on almost every issue and candidate. This is simply super and just ONE of the reasons I'm so dedicated to this man called Bernie Sanders!

What he's going to have to endure in the coming months will be almost too much for me to bear. I've been a political activist since the Viet Nam War and there are VERY FEW candidates I really gave my heart to. I was never an Obama supporter but I thought "maybe" I could go to bat for him, so I did. Yes, the odds were stacked against him from day one, he still did make some some progress and broke new ground. His star rose and then set quickly for me for reasons that are my own. I told myself NEVER AGAIN can I dig deep down enough to go through anymore crap!

I do realize changes are part of life, but the changes I've seen in this country when it comes to politics have spiraled so far down it's been hard for me to see UP.

Then there was Bernie and many months ago I got on board. I honestly feel if anyone can bring this country back to some sort of sanity it's this man. Not alone but with hungry eager Americans. He needs us and wants us. But TPTB don't want this to happen so I'm very afraid we'll miss the best chance this country might have to start back up in a very long time.

We all know who THEY are and I've seen it happening all day long. People are trying to speak, THEY don't want to hear and this is going to be a very heavy lift.

So "she" said she wasn't going to write a book, but I could say so very much more. Let's just keep on keeping on and thank you again OS, but THANK YOU BERNIE for making me care again!

Thanks to Bernie, for heading up this revolution.

But remember, my friends, it is not the end when Bernie gets elected. It would be the START of a very long war against those who want EVERYTHING, and will not be satisfied until they have it.

44. No mention of the environment? Medicare for all? Food inspections? Unions? Charter schools? Nukes?

Isil? Reproductive rights? Immigrants?

Only issues that relate directly to using money from individuals, such as donors to DU Act Blue, rather than having to depend on raising money from billionaires and millionaires with special interests?

I can't believe Bernie wrote such an awful thank you letter. The Thank You letters that other candidates have been sending their Act Blue donor groups have obviously been much more detailed, just in invisible ink. No doubt now that Bernie has led the way on this, other candidates will stop writing their thank you letters in invisible ink, so we can see how far superior their thank you letters have been to Bernie's all along.

Now is the time for a real progressive populist movement, but the message needs to be clear and not overly complex and it needs to be repeated over and over to drive it home into the minds of the people.

Then Bernie will win.

56. I have no money for anything but basics. I will donate what I can.

I am embarrassed about my current situation. Never expected old age to be so stressful. In am fortunate to have had a wonderful husband, we worked for years to bring up and educate our children. Since I am now widow and survive on SS, things are rough.

Just read that the government has decided there will be no COLA this year. Based a lot on gas usage? Give me a freaking break. Most of us old timers spend very little on gas. We can't afford to shop!!

We seniors(as do others) are facing huge increases in things like house and car insurance, Medicare, utilities, ad infinitum. Since we are now out of the workplace, there is nothing to help us but whatever our SS brings. Paid for years, screwed when it is imperative.
I have no confidence in government. I will donate to Bernie Sanders. I wish I could do more but the dollars are not there.

I hope Bernie is elected. His message hits home. I no longer believe that the government is 'for the people'.
His message is closer to my personal thoughts and beliefs.
