Bernie Sanders continues to advocate for Warnock and Ossoff


Ē...to my friends in Georgia, that is what this election is about. Itís about electing two strong, progressive senators in Rev. Warnock and Jon Ossoff. People who are going to fight for you. But it is also about which party controls the United States Senate. And that is a very, very big deal.Ē - Bernie Sanders

Itís great to see Bernie Sanders joining in and campaigning for our two wonderful candidates in the GA runoffs. I know there is a very small subset who donít like Bernie some of the time, but I think we can all agree that it is great to have him supporting Warnock and Ossoff in GA.

Everyone must vote and every vote must count!

Call it Defund the Police or call it something else ... it's still the right thing to do.

Here are some truths:

1. We have limited resources and limited budgets.
2. Police departments account for huge portions of municipal budgets.
3. Policing is largely ineffective at preventing crime and we cannot incarcerate our way to safer communities.

We must reallocate police funding to social programs that work on treating addiction, housing the homeless, and feeding the hungry.

On a national level we must enact single payer healthcare or Medicare for All, ensuring that everyone has access to mental healthcare whenever they may need it.

We also must enact progressive policies that limit the wealth disparity and eliminate chronic poverty.

These changes to our society will greatly reduce the need for police in the first place by treating the societal diseases that are responsible for crime in the first place.
