Sanders campaign demonstrates the beauty of leftism. Yes, the doorknockers of the great Democratic socialist Sanders unionized, signed contracts for a salary. Then two weeks later came back demanding more again...and again... and again. The whole story is beautiful.


This chick runs it down pretty good.

I don't know many Sanders supporters on the left.

I supported him in the 2016 primary, but was turned off to him and the BernieBros when they didn't fall in line after Hillary won.

that and the fact he's an Independent until it's convenient for him to switch to Democrat when convenient for an election. I think most of his supporters aren't Dems either.

There's at least 10 Dem candidates I'd vote for before I'd vote for him.

Youtube videos habitually provide no citation for their claims. Too many of them focus too much on hyperbolic exaggeration.

The reality in this country is that while unions have become weaker, the income inequality has continually widened, even under Trump. A boss can make changing demands and insist on new tasks, but workers are criticized if they unilaterally push for commensurate increases?

And a description on the work that campaign workers are expected to do...
The idea didn’t gain traction until the 2018 midterm elections, when a group of campaign workers launched the Campaign Workers Guild in Washington, DC. The new labor group worked with Democratic campaigns to try to remake the brutal work culture.
“We regularly work more than ten hours a day, seven days a week for low pay, often without health coverage. We usually don’t get sick days, much less a day off — and we’re fed up,” the guild explains on its website.
Campaign organizers often are expected to accept exploitative work conditions as a sign of their commitment to a political movement. That dynamic helps candidates, but not necessarily their staff, which the guild describes this way:
We are expected to sacrifice ourselves for the cause. For many years, the prevailing viewpoint among campaign staff has been that terrible work conditions are the price we must pay for the future we believe in. That future has never materialized for campaign workers. We are demanding it now.​
Bernie Sanders’s campaign staff just signed a historic union contract. Here’s what’s in it.

Just wait for the next Left wing demagogue to come along to latch onto that you don't know that much about.

I feel the hype for a "left wing demagogue" has died down. Bernie was exciting to me in 16 because he was going against the norm and the establishment.

Now there are a few Dem candidates that have similar progressive ideas (many better), and actual plans to implement them

Bernie is not cutting edge.

He just wants bigger centralized government which has been going on for over a century thanks to Progressivism.

He is just more vocal about it is all.

I think the idea is, he is the parrot in the cave to see if it is hip to be for big centralized government or stay in the closet.

Free health care and college? Yea, nothing is free Bernie.

Count the cost America.

Yeah, they never have the actual stories they are talking about on screen w/ direct references and/or links embedded. Especially the ones I post.
