Elizabeth Warren on The View: "Bernie Sanders is out there, generating an enormous amount of interest"
Nobody asked her about Bernie, she wanted to give him a shout-out. Kudos to Elizabeth.
They kept asking her about Trump though. She had some nice things to say about The Donald... before she took a sledgehammer to him and all Republicans. Me likey.
Well, look at that! /r/SandersForPresident’s second MONEYBOMB is here. And we're off to a great start! Look here for extra fun stuff!
So it looks like I've been forced down from my secluded mountain retreat again in order to post this oh so special mod post...
As of midnight, the Bernie Birthday Moneybomb has begun! So, let's all get out our purses, our coin jars, our sweaty rolled up dollars bills normally stashed in our socks, our piggy banks, our tax refunds, our treasure boxes, whatever we've got (again), and head over to the official donation page for the moneybomb and donate (at least) $8 or more on September 8th in support of Bernie Sanders' Birthday!
As you can see, the cream rises to the top, oh yeah and we're already at $15,207! Let's keep this train going!
Also, there is this fun thing, everyone should go find the #HappyBirthdayBernie hashtag on Twitter and RETWEET IT LIKE CRAZY. Like, cray.
But wait, there's more! (again) Because we're all fun people and like to do fun things, we're keeping the Bernie Squad promotions rolling. If you show us proof of your donation by posting a screen shot of the donation confirmation page in this thread. All members of the Bernie Squad will receive shiny new flair properly indicating their new rank in the Bernie Squad. You'll be able to show off your fancy flair to all your Reddit 'friends'! in /sub/sandersforpresident (This may take time, as we will be doing it manually.)
Oh and one more thing! You can follow along today and watch the amount we've raised today in real time. The thermometer on the donation page and in the sidebar was reset at midnight EST last night! Woo!So get to that donation page and donate! '#BernDownForWhat'

Edit: So, uh, 13 minutes later and we're at $17,424. Choo, choo!
Edit 2: 42 minutes later and we're at $21,294!
Edit 3: 92 minutes later and we're at $27,057!
Following the HUGE success of BERNing Manhattan... Chicago, San Francisco, Seattle, DC, Boston, Portland and all other pedestrian intense cities, it's our turn!
Let's get this show happening all across the US. Think of it as a massive flash mob across many cities in the US for Bernie. We're taking the first step of collecting eager organizers to BERN more pedestrian intense cities and setting up slacks for each of them. Please contact me if you're interested in making this happen all across the US!
If you are from any of the cities and already have a slack and team set up, please let me know! Also, if you think we should add your city to the list of cities to BERN please comment below.
30 DAYS LEFT to register as a democrat and vote for Bernie in NY, please join our global phone banking team to call all non-dem non-gop voters today!
As you might have already heard, New York has a (special and absurd) upcoming register to vote for the democratic primaries deadline of October 9. After this date, green party, working families party, non affiliated, and all other voters not registered as democrat will NOT be able to vote for Bernie for the New York democratic primaries.
These voters make up ~20% of voters in New York state and they are very likely future Bernie supporters if they knew about him. Too bad the first democratic debate will be after this deadline.
That's why we're stepping up to call all non-dem non-gop voters. Regardless of where you live, if you:
Love talking to people about Bernie
Speak English (Spanish and other languages a plus too!)
Have internet connection and / or a telephone
...please join us! You can sign up here, also please email us at email@example.com to ensure that we don't end up in your SPAM folder and we will send you instructions on how to phone bank for Bernie and phone numbers to start calling today! (6pm to 9pm)
You can also organize a phone banking party! Just let us know at firstname.lastname@example.org and we'll help you get set up!
We've already started making calls and are making good progress but we need more help! Check out our progress in real-time! Let's get to our first goal of 40,000 calls!
Remember, you don't need to be in New York or even in the US to volunteer, see FEC guidelines.
Also, HAPPY BIRTHDAY BERNIE!
