    List of Berniecrats as Down Ticket Races Now More Important Than WH.

    It’s clear that the fix was in, probably going back years, for the installment of a Corporate Approved ‘winner’ of the 2016 Presidential Election.

    Things became a bit more difficult than the plotters of the outcome of that race, had anticipated.

    For one thing, they are so completely out of touch with the voters they were in shock when two ‘outsiders’ to THEM, managed to become a huge threat to their pre-selected candidates.

    But in the end they are likely to ‘win’ by any means so with the picture so clear now and many people feeling that voting is a waste of time, something they WANT us to believe, we the people have to continue to fight them in any way we can.

    We know now that of the two remaining candidates,  whoever ‘wins’ won’t matter, both will be controlled policy-wise by the real rulers of this country.

    So, now it has become obvious that the Down Ticket Races are more important than the WH race which has already been determined. 

    So here is a comprehensive list of  candidates running for public office from all over the country.
    They are running for Local, State and Federal offices. Some have already won their primary races.

    THIS is one of Bernie’s greatest gifts to us and now we need to start using it to at least begin the process of removing the corporate tools from our government and to make the job of their installed CEO of the Corporate State a whole lot more difficult.

    http://berniecrats.net/#CO

    .
    This website provides a complete* listing of individuals who endorse Bernie Sanders and are active candidates for a public office. These are people who will do all they can to support and promote Bernie’s progressive plans. As Bernie says .. he can’t do it alone! If we want real change we need to make sure there are enough progressive leaders in office to actually pass the legislation to make those changes happen.

    Being a Berniecrat is not about party affiliation; it’s about the issues. Any candidate who publicly endorses Bernie (Twitter, Facebook, website) and supports his platform, qualifies for this list. You don’t have to agree with Bernie on everything, you just have to believe that he’s the right person for the job, and together we’ll get this country headed back in the right direction! To be added, Tweet me at @Bernie2016Yes.

    Remember that this page only includes people running for office, people who need your support (financial and otherwise). For other endorsements and information, see:

    Berniecrats subreddit – Discussions about Berniecrats!
    Other websites listing Bernie’s endorsements
    Berniecrats Network—Random Issues for Discussion (blog)
    Pending Berniecrats – awaiting confirmation for inclusion
    If you’re looking for an easy way to support a number of Berniecrats in one fell swoop, you might consider using the BlueAmerica “Bernie Congress” donation page through ActBlue ..

    BlueAmerica’s “Bernie Congress”

    Just as we’ve come out in YUUUGE numbers to support Bernie, we also need to support these candidates to make sure the right people are in office!

    Each entry lists the candidate’s name and office along with additional information as available:

    wcampaign website
    tTwitter
    fFacebook
    iendorsement info
    mgraphic meme (from @EndorseBernie!)

    Incumbents are listed with the year they are up for election. This is a “work in progress” and will may change over time .. please report any errors or omissions by sending a Tweet to @Bernie2016Yes.

    We’re collaborating with @EndorseBernie to add memes to the tweets for candidates. A yuuge thanks to @EndorseBernie for these great memes!

    The site is set up very nicely making it easy to find candidates in each state. 

    Eg,  in my state, NY, we have several great candidates running and it looks like a few of them, Zephyr Teachout eg running for Congress are likely to win, having already won their primaries.

    Nearly all Congressional Candidates are up for reelection this year.

    Imagine if we could replace at least a few of the Corporate Representatives and then repeat the process in 2018.

    Not all these candidates are running as Democrats. But all of them have expressed huge support for Bernie Sanders’ platform.

      5. i took the liberty to start a CA state roll call and a request to fill in gaps.

      hopefully others in their states will do the same for the next 49.

      we need more than just berniecrats within the democratic party; we need all the allies we can get. we need to fill in names so people can vote their conscience down-ballot and not feel defeated.

      want more than just impotent anger? well time for us to be the change and provide real options to excite our vote!

        6. I absolutely agree that it's up to us. There is no Democratic Party

        left so anyone the current Third Way party would put up for election would not be of interest to most of  people since a majority now despise both parties.

        Our job now is to begin the process of removing every single Corporate Funded member of Congress from both parties.

          17. ben looking up my state's voter registrar to see if the GE slate is up.

          not yet. seems like we gotta check by parties and primary results per our slice of the USA. time consuming, but we know our little bits of the world best!

          keep researching people! :)

      7. Arizona, backwards as always

      is going to make me wait until August 20 to vote downticket and then #DemExit .  It sticks in my craw to be associated with the Democrats until then.

      I checked with Beck and Lee, and members of the DNC Fraud class action suit do not have to maintain their Dem registration for purposes of the suit, they can reregister at any time.

      Stealing my primary and then asking for party unity is like a rapist saying I must now MARRY him because he'll hurt me less than that other rapist over there that I wasn't going to marry either.

        8. I think we have the same situation here in NY. I wish more candidates would

        start running as Independents. We will most likely have to wait until the GE to #DemExit, but we can do it symbolically on July 29th.

        Re the lawsuit, seems they now have a much stronger case with the new leaks. Are they still taking on Plaintiffs?

        11. Thanks for that, I saw it on RT the other night and was glad to see someone

        on the media letting people know they do have choices.

          12. Many folks esp. younger are following RT and Lee Camp who's terrific. Tim Canova

          should have been interviewed today by cable, alas no way. But soon I think we’ll be seeing more of Tim and others.

            13. I've been watching RT since 2012 when their coverage of OWS was excellent.

            Also where you get real news, from all over the world, and incredible interviews without all the commercials or talking head interruptions. Their documentaries are excellent, and RT is where you can actually see Progressives. Ed Schultz’s show is now on RT, so is Chris Hedges.

            Greg Palast and other actual journalists are allowed on RT but not on the tabloid MSM.

            I also watch other news media, BBC online if possible, not as good as it used to be but still a whole lot better than our excuse for a news media.

            I love CrossTalk where people actually give different views on important issues, and Max Keiser has a show on RT also, he used to post on the old forums, but gave up due to the noise from trolls etc.

            Thom Hartmann and Larry King also have shows on RT.

            After watching real journalists it’s even harder to watch the ‘stenographers’ on our Corp  Media

              14. Same here! I follow all those programs and began with wild Max and Thom.

              Since the Purge, the Other Place has really ramped up bashing and banning (‘they way we used to’) all RT programs and posts for their usual reasons. I rarely go there now, but today they’re really on the warpath due to the email leaks. Just noticed a long, ugly OP trashing Ed Schultz, every six ways to Sunday, even though he was cut by MSNBC. There’s no mercy with that grim group.

                15. Their opinions are worth as much as the Freepers', same motivation, fear of the

                truth and a psychopathic hatred for Progressives. They got Progressives off the air on the MSM and are wildly angry at RT for bringing them back on.

                I love that Progressives being on the air annoys them so much. Like the Freepers everything to them is the old ’50s McCarthyite ‘commies’ everywhere. I wonder if they know how alike they are?  It’s amazing.

                  16. Their influence in removing progressives from MSNBC especially I can believe.

                  Yet weasel, low talent Capehart who trashed the Univ. of Chicago Bernie pics still hangs around due to his connections I’ve read. When Chris Hayes came on around 6, it was like a switch had flipped– the script was almost all about the Kaine pick, the convention lineup and few comments absent any real truth on the emails story.

                  Die hard clique champ Karen Finney was brought on to add some usual ‘upbeat’ words for The Team, and said gruffly about the emails, ‘that’s all done now.’ She seemed mildly perturbed and maybe gritting her teeth when she said ‘yes, Bernie Sanders will be speaking tmrw’, along with Warren and Michelle Obama, a rockstar. Can’t do that network anymore, today was an exception..

      19. Is there a way other than Twitter to submit new Berniecrats?…

      I’ve been avoiding twitter recently for various reasons, but have two good Bernie supporting candidates for Oregon state offices that should be on this list.

      Janeen Sollman – the Dem candidate to replace my current rep Joe Gallegos in District 30 legislature slot, is scheduled to speak to Bernie groups in a week or so, and has been a good Bernie supporter for a long time now.  We need her elected to the state legislature!  She would be my best elected rep to represent me other than possibly Jeff Merkley.

      Ross Swartzendruber – I just met him at a Bernie meeting a week ago or so, and he’s running for the State Senate position in District 12, which also encompasses Benton County where Dems and Greens are working together to get a local Ranked Choice Voting proposition passed there.

       

      Vote AGAINST the race to the bottom by both corporate parties who seek to screw workers over globally!

        20. Thanks Cascadience. I am hoping we can create a forum here for every state

        where people can search for  good candidates, such as the two you just listed, and/or add any who are not yet on the list.

        To get their names out there twitter is a great tool which has worked very well for Tim Canova eg who started out there with just a few followers but had his campaign promoted on Social Media to the point where he is now a major threat to DWS.

        I don’t know if you can email the site I linked to with names of new candidates, if they are not already on the list.

        I will check that in a few minutes.

        These sound like people who should be getting exposure so we can start getting good people into office.

        I don’t know if it’s possible to create a forum here which could then be linked to on Social Media so people can start working in their states to start changing the government at local, state and federal levels.

        To me this is the most important part of the election season right now. We know already that whoever the ‘winner’ of the WH is, they will need to be reigned in seriously and our current Corporate Congress isn’t going to do it.

      I’m proud to fight as a Berniecrat, but I’m disheartened by Bernie’s new OurRevolution org appearing only to support Democrats at the expense of Green and Independent Progressives currently running.

        33. It's obvious now that we must change Congress as fast as possible because they

        OWN the White House, for now. But beginning the process of replacing all their tools in Congress is absolutely necessary now, imo.

          34. Yes, we do not have time to waste. We may not be totally satisfied with

          everything about the available candidates but we need the best congress we can get at this late date. And I don’t care what is behind their name. I want people who will be honest and work for us.

            35. I agree, the letter is no longer important to a huge number of people now, more

            than ever before. The largest voting bloc in the country right now are registered Independents, for the first time in history I believe, or at least in the living memories of most people.

            I am now of the opinion that all candidates should run outside of the parties, as Bernie has for his entire career. It seems that once they win on a party ticket, they are CAPTIVES of the parties and not free to do as they believe is right.

            Feels very good to be finally free of ‘party loyalty’ for the first time.
