Fantastic poster alert!

Thanks to those who shared this yesterday. Was just too good to not do an encore.

Two days before California joins 13 other states to parcel out a huge number of delegates in the Democratic presidential race, Sen. Bernie Sanders will appear in Los Angeles with Public Enemy Radio, plus comedian Sarah Silverman and TV legend Dick Van Dyke, the Sanders campaign announced Wednesday night. They even made a poster for the March 1 rally.

They’re either speaking or performing in LA for Bernie, I heard.

But there is only one candidate who can electrify the electorate enough to beat Donald Trump, and that’s Senator Bernard Sanders of Vermont.
The SECB did not come to this decision lightly or without debate. But after pounding a bunch of alarmingly caffeinated seltzers and wolfing down handfuls of gluten-free cookies, we found ourselves largely united behind Bernie Sanders.

When it comes to this particular presidential race, Sanders has the strongest platform, the biggest grassroots network, and the best chance of sending the Cheeto-in-chief back to his gaudy suite in Midtown Manhattan. (Or, better yet, to prison.)

It’s a good article.

We’re a polarized country, and moderates—along with Mitch McConnell—hold their fair share of the blame. Though Barack Obama made progress on health care, years of trying to find middle ground with Republicans and conservative Democrats led to weak-tea policies that failed to slow rising income inequities, failed to cool a warming planet, and failed to bring troops home for good. In 2016, too many people felt like the government wasn’t meaningfully addressing their problems, so they threw a bunch of grenades into the system or else sat the fuck out. That got us Donald Trump, and it cannot happen this time around.

Democrats need to start bringing their own grenades to this fight. And if we want to end this era of polarization, we need to win this race and then work to implement major changes that improve people’s daily lives so deeply that Republicans would sooner die than try to cut them out. The only candidate who can do all that is our brother from Brooklyn. On primary day, vote for Bernie Sanders. The SECB, and the future, demand it.
