Hi @egg509!

I feel as though we need to have a discussion about your 3 tweets below 👇🏾

I invite you to have an adult conversation with me. Allow me to address your tweets directly, mmk? /1

#Bernie2020 #FeelTheBern #NoMiddleGround
Let's tackle your tweet about how us Berners have no respect, morals, integrity etc.

We actually do! And a LOT of it!

Bernie's movement is a moral movement which has lots of similarities to MLK's #PoorPeoplesCampaign.

#Benie2020 /2
We believe in human rights that many Democrats themselves don't believe, like giving those incarcerated the right to vote as example. We also believe things like EDU are human rights along with housing.

#Bernie2020 /3
In fact, Bernie supporters are moralist in nature. So much so that we'll fight for YOU to have health care & never feat bankruptcy with #MedicareForAll. And we do it despite you not liking Bernie.

I'd say that is pretty good, eh?
#Bernie2020 /4
Integrity.

Well, we support Bernie who has been fighting for US for over 4 decades. We come from all walks of life & we're organized to give America what FDR wanted to; FDR's 2nd.

How often do Dems talk about that & why is it just Bernie? #Bernie2020 /5
You say that you don't want us in your party. Well, let's think about this for a second....

Democrats are just 27% of the total electorate. That's it! Many of us who support Bernie Sanders are not Democrats but indies & third party. Bernie lots of Dems too!
#Bernie2020 /6
In order to win the White House you must build a coalition of voters. "Only Democrats" is a fast way to wind up in a landslide situation in a general.

I'm a Green who is reaching across party lines to volunteer, support & vote for Bernie. That's outreach! #Bernie2020 /7
And there are millions more just like me who are voting for Bernie who's running as a Democrat!

In 2016, more people sat home than voted for Hillary & Trump. Ask why. Solve the problem. Instead of vote shaming, converse, talk, discourse is good! #Bernie2020 /8
The tweet calling us "bitches" and "tards".

I'm rather appalled, disgusted really.
You say you're "Christian" & a Dem but you're acting like a fake for Jesus Trumper.

Why would a Lib use a misogynistic word & one which is a pejorative for the mentally disabled? #Bernie2020 /9
Words like that are very unbecoming of someone who identifies as a "Democrat", and it's an awful look which doesn't do anything to help you, your cause, or your candidate. You also damage your party directly & play into the hands of Trumpers. #Bernie2020 /10
I would like you to think about what I said above. Doing what you did only drives people away from your party which needs every vote it can get to beat Trump. That's a fact.
#Bernie2020 /11
Lastly I want to explain our movement to you. I understand passions can run high & they often do. There's lots of noise & that can down out lots.

Have you taken the time to read the hashtag #MyBernieStory? Have you watched the videos? Read the tweets? #Bernie2020 /12
I urge you to do so if you've not. Like myself, many of us are very poor & sick. For many of us, this is a life or death election. And Bernie is who helps us the most.

Many of us can't afford our meds. We are dying without insulin because we can't afford it. #Bernie2020 /13
And under ANY Dem running aside from Bernie, we still wouldn't be able to afford it & would still be dying.

Do you think that's right? Do you think that's "moral"? I don't.

Let's compare Warren to Bernie here 👇🏾
#Bernie2020 /14
Warren - $500/mo cap

Bernie - $200/YEAR cap

The differences here are very stark. I literally can't afford Warren's plan. It would be disaster for millions of us.

Bernie however helps us!
#Bernie2020 /15
Many Berners are in a world of hurt & guess what? We have been for a long time. We've lost so much & many of us can't afford even the basics anymore. We're fight for our existence & survival. That's why so many of us are passionate.
#Bernie2020 /16
Understand that for us who support Bernie, we see politics as this; people > party.

We vote for progressives whose policies help people. ONLY.

Party affiliation to us is meaningless. Issues matter to us the most & we'll vote for anyone who will help others. #Bernie2020 /17
After all, why should we support a Democrat who will vote against our interests. Like that governor in LA who signed that abortion bill into law. Why? nbcnews.com/news/us-news/l…
#Bernie2020 /17
Us Bernie Supporters have standards. These standards are pretty straight forward things.

The problem is standards have become incredibly for Democrats. 👇🏾 thehill.com/homenews/house…

We're changing this when we elect Bernie Sanders!

I hope this all makes sense.
