“Not Me. Us!”

by Jackie Dee King, Cole Harrison, and Brian Garvey That stirring slogan of the Bernie Sanders movement has never been more important, now that he has suspended his campaign for president. While we—his millions of supporters—are still grieving, we also have much to be proud […]

Bernie Won New Hampshire! On to Massachusetts and Beyond!

by John Ratliff

Last week we celebrated an historic victory in New Hampshire. For many, the fact that Sen. Sanders stood apart from the rest of the field as the most resolute and outspoken champion of Peace in the aftermath of Trump’s murder of Iranian General Suleimani encouraged a rise in support for him which has not stopped.

Thousands of volunteers from Massachusetts made the journey to the Granite State to knock on doors in the rain, the snow, and the cold to make the victory possible. Thousands more made calls or chipped in a few dollars. Thanks to the strategy, “Not Me. Us.” Senator Bernie Sanders of Vermont, the most progressive and pro-peace presidential candidate, is now the frontrunner in the race to unseat the most dangerous president in the history of the United States. But it will only happen if we don’t let up now… […]

The Candidate We Have Always Deserved

by Marcelle Grair

If you are a worker or poor person in this country, then Bernie Sanders is your candidate. I come from a family of sharecroppers, domestic workers, retail employees, postal workers, and sanitation workers. Their work was directly connected to their quality of life. My maternal grandfather, a sanitation worker, left very early every morning and got home late. My grandfather retired at the age of 64, and one year later he died. Sanitation workers have a dangerous and stressful job. As a union organizer, I hear stories every day of workers not being valued, being overworked and underpaid. The working class and poor deserve better. We deserve Bernie Sanders. […]

A Day in the Life of Two Sanders Volunteers in New Hampshire

by Andrea Burns

My mom and I have been canvassing in New Hampshire most Saturdays since November for Senator Sanders. My brother owns a home in Hartand, Vermont, a 20-minute drive from the campaign office in West Lebanon. We usually go door-to-door or drive campaign volunteers without cars to canvass. On this particular Saturday, toward the end of the canvassing, we headed to the Wal-Mart in West Lebanon. The overwhelming majority of those we met said they liked Bernie and a few had personal stories about him. A dairy farmer and his sister from Randolph told me that once, during a bad snowstorm, Sanders had shoveled the snow from her friend’s driveway. […]

Threat of War with Iran: Why we need Bernie Sanders for President in 2020

by John Ratliff

Bernie Sanders is the only presidential candidate who has come out unequivocally and forcefully against War with Iran. While other Democratic candidates have reinforced Trump’s narrative about the “just” death of a supposed monster and criticized only the failure to consult Congress or the impulsiveness of the timing, Sanders has staunchly opposed the drive to war itself and called for negotiations and a return to the Iran nuclear deal. This stance is a continuation of his lifelong commitment to peace and opposition to US imperial wars abroad. […]
