Hello my fellow Bernie brothers / sisters

I'm glad to be here and am pulling for us all to get Bernie in the white house, I have an idea for making a u tube film that would expose the right wing for their goals while ending it with one of Bernie's great speeches, but alas I lack the technical skill to do so If anyone is interested in helping me see this happen please let me know the title would be " Right wing paradise" " a pictionary" we could give any proceeds to Bernie's campaign if the thought peeks your interest please contact me through D. U.

PS. I really believe that this could make a difference if done right, As corny or crazy as it sounds the idea came to me in a dream , so either the cheese has slid off my cracker or it is meant to happen, For now I'm going with meant to happen.

If you elaborate, and people join in, maybe there will be a synergy, and ideas could turn into a video. I'd love to think about it, and share, even if I can't help much more than that. I don't recall anything like this taking shape before, so I wouldn't get too hopeful. But I always thought that's what a forum was about.

My basic concept is to juxtapose the way the right wing corporatists agenda would actually look against what a progressive democratic socialist agenda would look like using clips from speeches of republicans pushing their crazy agenda with appropriate pictures of what the country might look like if they got their way then doing the same with the progressive agenda showing the stark difference of the two choices finished with a Bernie speech, it needs to be done ASAP for the desired effect to get to the public as long before the election as possible.

Actual visuals of the world resulting from the visions and concepts implemented by a Bernie Sanders administration.

It would not only have examples of how someone could take public transportation to get real medical help without having to pay and arm and a leg, but it would also have to include addressing the imagined negatives that would result. For example, bankers would still be making money, just not hoarding it at our expense.

He has pros who know marketing, but I still think we could contribute to the effort.

In fact, I think Bernie has done this with his mentioning the Scandinavian countries. That sends a visual of happier people in a society with less cruelty.

We have time. And I think we should hit up this forum with threads asking for this kind of contribution from time to time. Sooner or later we'll get some participation. And in the meantime we might get people just thinking about this.

And there are other means by which Bernie's message can be made super clear, but I'm not sure what they are. I have resources in the form of a brilliant art forum. They're all super bright in the political department, and often make digital art that is so perfect. Unfortunately they frown on people asking them for help. But maybe I can get some communication going with them.

I recently ordered some magnetic signs for my pathfinder they say " Give 'EM' Hell Bernie " on top with a picture of Bernie and below the picture it says "Real Change for real people" below that it says " Vote 2016" , should be delivered by Wednesday I'll post a pic when they are on my ride.

would these have to be approved with Bernie before release? Rogue videos using Bernie's speeches could run into problems

Are these considered donations to the campaign?

I vaguely remember MoveOn having a contest for political ads bypassing the costly ad agencies.

Any positive adding voters to Bernie's cause gets my support.

… by your permission, and his, this kind of grassroots design is what it's all about.

Makes me wish I was retired, because I think I'd be good at the technical using my next Mac. Others must be better than I am.
