For all those disappointed by the pardonings here at DU, may I make a suggestion? [View all]

Spend less time on reading juvenile posts by immature authoritarian lovers and WAY more time phone banking for Bernie. Every half hour you waste on DU can be spent on phone banking. We have gotten this far, which NOBODY thought would happen, by phone banking and canvassing. Not only do we need to continue, we need to kick it into high gear.

If you haven't done any phone banking there are several resources available. You can go to www.berniesanders.com/phonebanking. There you will find everything you need by way of training. If you have questions, there is a live chat. You can also sign on to live webinars in which experienced phone bankers are live and will walk you through the process -- it's sort of like sitting in a virtual classroom. Another option is to go to map.berniesanders.com, plug in your zip code, a radius, and find a phone banking event if you feel there is strength in numbers. If there's not an event, create one. Is it scary at first? Yes. But like anything else, after the first few calls, you stop stuttering and stepping on your tongue and each succeeding call gets better. At some point it's going to feel like the most natural thing in the world.

Sitting on social media and DU, frankly, does NOTHING for the campaign. Only action advances the campaign.

There are amazing activists on this site. Use them. Ask questions. All of us are here to help.

So, enough with the hand-wringing about DU and WAY more on phone banking and canvassing if your caucus or primary is coming up.
