[font style="font-family:Arial Black;" size=6 color=#08088A]Welcome to the Bernie Sanders Group![/font]

[font style="font-family:Arial;" size=3 color=#08088A]This group has been started at the request of DU members to learn more about our candidate for the Democratic Primary, foment active involvement in the campaign, promote financial support, discuss the merit of his points, and discuss his positive and negative aspects with the preponderance of the positive.

This is the current Bernie Sanders Group Statement of Purpose, active hosts will use this to help guide the groups discussions: [/font]

The mission of the Bernie Sanders Group is to discuss information and news about the life, career, accomplishments, and current campaign for the Democratic Party's Nomination in 2016 of Bernie Sanders. The Bernie Sanders Group will provide a haven for those members of Democratic Underground who support the Senator Sanders and his policies; to discuss his policy positions, speeches, interviews, and other public appearances; to discuss Senator Sanders 2016 Democratic nomination campaign; and to discuss the causes which Senator Sanders has championed.

The Bernie Sanders Group is not a forum. This group serves as safe haven for members who share similar interests and viewpoints. Individuals who post messages contrary to this group's stated purpose can be excluded from posting, these decisions will be made by the current group hosts. Any and all posts about supporters of other groups will be immediately locked.

[font style="font-family:Arial;" size=3 color=#08088A] Of special note: Jackpine Radical was posthumously made a mod of the Bernie Sanders group. In memory of Jackpine Radical, aka Jim Peterson, for his dedication and hard work for the Democratic Party. He met adversity with kindness, nonsense with facts, problems with humor. An avid Bernie Sanders supporter, this group is dedicated to him. [/font]
