#SoCS — Bernie 2020

Linda G. Hill is the host of Stream of Consciousness Saturday.  Linda says:

Your Friday prompt for Stream of Consciousness Saturday is “the last piece of mail you received.” Talk about the subject of the last piece of physical mail you received, i.e. a gas bill–talk about gas, not the bill itself. Have fun!

I don’t get a lot of snail mail anymore unless it is clothing catalogs that I don’t buy anything from anymore as I don’t need work clothes since retiring.  I frequently get solicitations from any charitable organization I’ve given even a dollar to for years afterwards.  What a waste of paper.  I am happy to say that the last solicitation in the snail mail was from…..  Bernie Sanders!  Yes, the video at the end of this post confirms that Bernie IS running for POTUS for the 2020 election.

3-23 bernie mail

In the 2016 election I wanted Bernie for Pres with every fiber of my being.  Come on, people, you can’t find a candidate with more integrity, who walks the walk, than Bernie Sanders.  Look at his voting record.  The day Bernie stepped aside and Hillary Rodham Clinton took the Democratic nomination was one of the saddest days of my life in a political context.  I got depressed and had to shut down for a few days after learning Bernie stepped out of the race.

My hopes that Bernie would run for the 2020 election were dim — until I got the solicitation in the mail this week.  Please watch the video below if you want to hear more about the plan for the campaign.  Are you sick of the top 3 billionaires having more net worth than the bottom 50% of the US population’s net worth?  It’s time to share the wealth.  We need to be active volunteers.  Bernie is hoping for a million grass-roots volunteers in each state.  Be one of those million and we CAN take our country back from the garbage that controls it now.

  1. He’s the ONLY choice for me. If Hillary would have had integrity, she would have stepped aside and let the most popular candidate win. Instead she played dirty tricks and got the nomination. I blame Hillary and I blame the Democratic party. Bernie has what this country needs right now!

  2. They spackled the old guy up pretty well for that video! 😀 (kidding…sort of) I am concerned with the age of some of the candidates, and while VP selection is always important, it is often overlooked. (Trump is horrendous, but I think Pence might actually be worse, in a lot of different ways.) Biden is another one. I’m not as big a fan of Bernie as you, but there’s a lot I like about him, and like you, wasn’t thrilled with Hillary. I just hope the Dems don’t shoot themselves in their various feet like they tend to do. I hope the country doesn’t do another “Oh there’s no way he (Trump) can get elected (again)!” things.

  3. I’m with you all the way on what you are saying, except that Bernie is in great shape and his mind is sharp as a tack. Life expectancy these days is close to 100. Bernie has a good 25 years left in him. More than enough to lead us into some balance in our country. There is no knowing if the Dems will support him. They hung him out to dry in 2016. He may have to break the tie between Tweedle Dee and Tweedle Dum, so we can get something positive going for WE the PEOPLE. We absolutely can try to find an excellent running mate for Bern.

  4. Exactly. I was happy to see the Clintons dumped for that alone. In the end I preferred trump as the unknown candidate but man what a absolute shit show that’s turned out to be…Sanders now has probably a better chance than ever
