Bernie Sanders, Hillary Clinton and billionaires

This video from the USA says about itself:

I Prefer Wisconsin to the Homes of Billionaires | Bernie Sanders

29 March 2016

This campaign is speaking to thousands of people, not going to billionaires’ homes and begging for donations and contributions.

Bernie Sanders supporters interviewed: here.

The most striking feature of the 2016 US election campaign is the virtual absence of discussion of what is by far the most serious issue facing the people of the United States and the world, looming over everything else: the escalating military conflict that threatens to plunge the entire planet into a new world war: here.

  1. I don’t think I’m too far off to say that this is a headline few in the political establishment would have thought possible even a couple months ago:

    Bernie Sanders outraises Hillary Clinton for third month straight; aims to win Wisconsin on Tuesday

    If we all pull together today, we could wake up to that headline tomorrow. And based on the response already today, I think it’s very possible. These are all real contributions from folks who chipped in earlier for tonight’s final FEC fundraising deadline before Wisconsin and New York vote.

    These are contributions that our supporters have made to our campaign. Join them by adding your contribution now.

    Let’s be real: at the beginning of this contest, it wasn’t really a fair fight. We were up against an opponent with millionaires, billionaires, super PACs, and a good chunk of Wall Street in her corner.

    What we’ve proven is that millions of people standing together in a political revolution can take on the billionaire class. And when we hit our goal tonight, we are going to send a powerful message to those who have yet to vote that we have what it takes to defeat the billionaire class in this election. That’s why we have to ask:

    Can Bernie count on you to make a $3 contribution for tonight’s FEC fundraising deadline? You can do that here.

    Every single contribution we receive before midnight should be seen as a declaration of support for the values we share. People should not underestimate us.

  2. More important numbers for you on a very important day before our midnight FEC deadline.

    Check ’em out:

    In the next 27 days, eight more states will vote with 731 delegates up for grabs. That’s 3 times as many delegates as we need to overtake Hillary Clinton’s lead.

    In those same 27 days, Hillary Clinton and her campaign are hosting at least 46 high-dollar fundraising events, including one event where people contribute as much as $353,400.

    The average contribution to our campaign is just $27 – a figure that is important because it speaks to the fact that we are powered by working families, not the billionaire class.

    Add your $27 contribution right now before our midnight FEC fundraising deadline to show that you are part of our political revolution, not the billionaire class.

    Contribute $27

    Why does Bernie always mention the fact that the average contribution to our campaign is $27? It’s because what we’re doing is actually pretty unprecedented in modern American politics.

    Since Citizens United, all of the incentive for politicians is to raise money from millionaires and billionaires and give their blessing to super PACs. We’re doing it a different way.

    We don’t have a super PAC. There are no oligarchs waiting in the wings. No Wall Street fundraisers.

    It’s you, Linda, your $27 contribution, and our political revolution. Make your contribution right now before our midnight FEC fundraising deadline.

  5. Have you seen the latest polling on Wisconsin?

    Public Policy Polling (March 31, 2016)
    Bernie Sanders: 49%
    Hillary Clinton: 43%
    Undecided: 8%

    This poll has us up, but that’s no reason to stop. We need to fight for every vote and call every voter.

    With 86 pledged delegates at stake, Wisconsin is a critical state for our political revolution. When Wisconsin votes on Tuesday, not only do we have the chance to rack up another win, but – even more critically – we have the opportunity to chip away at our opponent’s delegate lead and bring our campaign closer to the nomination.

    With polls showing eight percent of voters still undecided just four days out, we urgently need your help reaching Wisconsin voters in time before Tuesday. Can you help us bring Bernie’s message to Wisconsin voters today?

    Call Wisconsin voters from home »

    Or join a phonebank event near you to call Wisconsin voters with other volunteers:

    Phone banking for Bernie:
    Saturday, April 2ⁿᵈ at 6:00 pm CDT in Dallas

    Phone banking for Bernie – Dallas, TX:
    Sunday, April 3ʳᵈ at 6:00 pm CDT in Dallas

    Phone banking for Bernie:
    Monday, April 4ᵗʰ at 6:00 pm CDT in Dallas

    Phone banking for Bernie – Dallax, TX:
    Tuesday, April 5ᵗʰ at 5:00 pm CDT in Dallas

    This campaign has already defied the laws of political gravity and grabbed the attention of the political, financial, and media establishment. And we’re not through yet.

    On Tuesday, we’ll get another chance to show the world that we won’t stop fighting until we take our country back from the billionaire class. But we can’t do it without your help delivering this message to the voters in the most effective way possible – one by one.

    Let’s do this.
