PBS Vermont - Beyond Bernie 4. Burlington's Socialist Mayor

Published on May 9, 2018

The 1980s introduced Ronald Reagan and his conservative politics to the nation. But in true Vermont fashion, the state’s biggest city swung to the left voting Bernie Sanders, a self-proclaimed Socialist, into the mayor’s office by a mere 10 votes. Since then, Burlington has been a bastion of progressive politics setting an example for the state and the nation.

Explore the character of the ‘Brave Little State’ of Vermont and the shared values that matter most to Vermonters, regardless of party affiliation.

Bernie 2020 'Stamp' (printed envelope design)

WASHINGTON- In a stunning and controversial departure from standard practice dating back over two hundred years, the United States Postal Service has issued a Forever Stamp endorsing the 2020 presidential candidacy of Vermont Senator Bernie Sanders.

Adorned with the words “BERNIE 2020” the jumbo-sized stamp depicts the senator delivering a campaign speech amidst a colorful backdrop of American flags.

Or so is the illusion being created courtesy of a mischievously designed envelope that’s been showing up in thousands of mailboxes nationwide since its release just a few days ago, both fooling and delighting its recipients. (View Bernie Sanders Envelope)

The deception is accomplished by means of incorporating a USPS Forever Stamp (a flag) into the design printed in the upper-right corner of the envelope. When the Forever Stamp is affixed in its designated place, the Bernie Sanders ‘stamp’ image has been completed.

The ready-for-mailing envelope comes with a “Red, White, and Blue” Forever Stamp and requires no additional postage to be mailed first class anywhere in the U.S. (up to one ounce, like all Forever Stamps).
