We Need Bernie!

We Need Bernie!

Senator Bernie Sanders (I-Vermont) has announced that he is considering a candidacy for President in 2016 to further a desperately needed political revolution in the USA.

Senator Sanders is a lifelong champion of the public programs and democratic rights that empower working class people. His candidacy could help expand both the progressive movement and the democratic socialist voice within that movement.



Democratic Socialists of America strongly encourages Senator Sanders to officially announce his candidacy for President of the United States. We further encourage him to meet with grassroots activists throughout the country to discuss how his candidacy might effectively promote their varied struggles for social and economic justice, human rights, world peace and a healthy environment.

By running in Democratic Party primaries, Independent Senator Sanders would challenge the dominant discourse of the neoliberal Democrats that privilege corporate business interests over those of all working people. Thus he would contribute to building a strong movement to halt the vicious attacks of Tea Party Republicans at all governmental levels on workers' rights, voting rights, and people of color in general.

Those who wish to promote the goals of this petition should consider taking concrete and specific actions at the grassroots level that would promote a Sanders run. Note that you are interested in volunteering with us to stand and say: #WeNeedBernie

10 years a DUer. Thanks DU, and thanks Skinner!!!

With the holidays, I totally blew by my 10 years date that happened a couple weeks ago - Dec 23, 2004.

I had planned on writing a long op about all of the changes and permutations of DU over the years, but those that have been here that long are aware of how this place has changed.

In the dark days of Dean's campaign's demise, Air America and DU were the two shining lights that made me think things could turn around. Sadly, I am still waiting 10 years later.

I hope to be here to see the pendulum swing left again.

Thank you Skinner.
