Let's Get Bernie Elected! In ten minutes or less.

Disclosure: I believe Bernie Sanders is the leader we need, and the only viable person running for president. Yes, he's human and we're not likely to ever find a "political messiah," except to ultimately be our own messiah to the extent we can.

The two problems I see preventing Bernie from being elected to the U.S. Presidency are: 1) Even now not enough people know about him; 2) the mainstream media will be doing him no favors. I suppose I should note a third problem--directly connected to the above and perhaps the largest one we need to work around--Big Money is not behind him.

Thus my proposed solution to enable a Sanders' presidency: I will avoid the term "bumper stickers," since for whatever reason these things seem to have largely fallen out of style. I won't speculate on the reasons, though I frankly miss the things and imagine we all have our own thoughts on this.

I will refer to my solution as "awareness labels." I call them that because it's a more accurate description of what they are, and of course, to avoid those immediate turn-offs to the term "bumper stickers." Physically, these labels are a mere 1 by 7 inches, as the picture below will show. Also, they actually send people to Bernie's official site, where folks with a few functional brain cells can learn Sanders' position on issues that seriously matter. I will go a step further and say I these labels are more valuable than sending $$$ to the Sanders' campaign, to pay for MSM advertising and other traditional money holes (though I have pledged $10 a month for a year myself, and certainly have no problem with people doing that; as for the domain name on the labels, I purchased that some months back and recently pointed it to Bernie's site).

These labels come off easily, don't block your view in any way, and, presumably and hopefully, send intelligent or curious people to Bernie's official website.

The cost to you? A stamp and small envelope, sent to the address below, namely my own, and less than five minutes to stick the thing on your car, or other prominent place where it would seem appropriate (kindly avoiding places that might cause palpitations for store owners or such). Any donations are accepted and welcomed, and will go toward the purchase of yet more labels.

So if you want to pick up your small slack in what I hope becomes a very large chain (hey, it is already pretty damn large!), send a self-addressed stamped envelope to the address below and I'll promptly send you "an awareness label" for your car, bike, skis, coat, front window, forehead, toilet seat, or whatever is your preference for spreading awareness (if my reply isn't prompt, it's because I'm in the process of ordering more, but even that doesn't take long).

As for myself, I see no need to hyperventilate, read tomes of articles on who the next president is "likely" to be, "what Bernie should or should not do next," or even give the topic a second thought. Get one of these skinny little numbers, post it on your car, and be proud that you are quite possibly helping bend the arc of history, in a direction we can actually live with. That one small act is infinitely more worthwhile than reading the bzillion depressing articles that see each day, imvso.

A simple URL that you drive around for 13,476 miles or so a year (the average, according to American Automobile Association, equaling 259 miles a week or 37 miles a day), will get far more "mileage" in telling the world what this amazing man is all about.

Thanks in advance for your interest and support for a better earth; I look forward to returning your SASE.

In my run for U.S. Senate against Utah's Orrin Hatch, I posted many progressive ideas and principles that I internalized over the years. I'm leaving that site up indefinitely, since it describes what I believe most members of our species truly (more...)
