Ben and Jerry: Bernie Will Win!

Ben and Jerry came to Iowa to stump for Bernie Sanders. The event was the Progress Iowa Corn Feed. Ben and Jerry of course arrived with Ice Cream and personally served free ice cream to the crowd and Bernie's table. I had a chance to sit down with them before the event, and filmed their speech to the crowd, which ended with Jerry shouting: "Bernie Will Win!"

Scott Galindez attended Syracuse University, where he first became politically active. The writings of El Salvador's slain archbishop Oscar Romero and the on-campus South Africa divestment movement converted him from a Reagan supporter to an activist for Peace and Justice. Over the years he has been influenced by the likes of Philip Berrigan, William Thomas, Mitch Snyder, Don White, Lisa Fithian, and Paul Wellstone. Scott met Marc Ash while organizing counterinaugural events after George W. Bush's first stolen election. Scott will be spending a year covering the presidential election from Iowa.

A note of caution regarding our comment sections:

For months a stream of media reports have warned of coordinated propaganda efforts targeting political websites based in the U.S., particularly in the run-up to the 2016 presidential election.

We too were alarmed at the patterns we were, and still are, seeing. It is clear that the provocateurs are far more savvy, disciplined, and purposeful than anything we have ever experienced before.

It is also clear that we still have elements of the same activity in our article discussion forums at this time.

We have hosted and encouraged reader expression since the turn of the century. The comments of our readers are the most vibrant, best-used interactive feature at Reader Supported News. Accordingly, we are strongly resistant to interrupting those services.

It is, however, important to note that in all likelihood hardened operatives are attempting to shape the dialog our community seeks to engage in.

Adapt and overcome.

Yes, when "Bernie" wins, we will see change. He'll shut down the M.I.C., and serve AMERICA ahead of AIPAC. The perpetrators of 9/11 will be brought to justice, when "Bernie" wins!! :)

And just how do you see that Bernie will get his agenda enacted? through legislation? Through the House that is dominated by Republicans who oppose everything progressive and reasonable and shut the government down when they don't get their way?

Bernie or any other progressive, populist or Democratic elected official need for their supporters to start figuring out how to get voters to the polls in midterm elections so we can win the seats in Congress needed to pass progressive legislation.

I love Bernie but one elected official cannot change much.

I heard it. Finally my computer does something special. Ben and Jerry say it with flavor. Hopefully people will stop and listen to this man from Vermont. He is speaking to everyone in this country and if people in other lands read or hear him, I imagine they think its a dream. It is not. It can happen.

A synopsis of Ben's comments:

Bernie tells the truth that our system of government is broken.

He stands for:

*End the cap on Social Security;
*Restore the estate tax;
*Pass a financial tax on Wall Street of 41%;
*Close off-shore tax havens;
*Make it illegal for million $ corporations
to pay no or low taxes;

*Provide universal health care for everyone;
*Provide access to education for everyone;
*Real unemployment figures for whites is at 30%; for blacks it's 50%.
*Provide a living wage of $15/hour to shift
people out of poverty;
*Infrastructure repairs need to be made;
*Shift subsidies from oil and gas to renewables;
*Tax methane and carbon fuels;
*Establish REAL family values - Paid Parental Leave; Paid sick days; Paid vacation;
*Too big to fail banks are too big to exist -- break them up;
*Fairness and equality for all;

People have always said that Bernie could never be elected -- throughout his career as Mayor, his elections as House Rep and then in the Senate. BERNIE IS ELECTABLE if WE work to help him!

It's no accident that Bernie is drawing thousands to campaign stops. He's the only major candidate addressing US political and governmental corruption, the ONLY candidate standing up for us.
