Take a look at this, Compatriots,
July 9, 2015 - shortly after Jeb Bush announced that his super PAC had raised $114 million.
"We still don't know the details of who gave all that money, but we believe some of it came in the form of million - and even multimillion dollar checks from a small handful of right-wing mega-donors." - Clinton campaign manager Robby Mook
May 5, 2016 - shortly after Donald Trump becomes the presumptive Republican Party nominee.
"Hillary Clinton's supporters in recent days have been making a furious round of calls to top Bush family donors to try to convince them that she represents their values better than Donald Trump." - Politico
Bernie Sanders believes that you cannot change a corrupt system by taking its money.
We are funding our campaign a different way. And every vote we earn, delegate we claim, and state we win from now until the convention is only because people have come together to say they are SICK AND TIRED of the billionaire class buying our candidates and elections.
And that's why we ask:
Can Bernie count on you to make a $2.70 contribution today? Your donation, along with the thousands being made right now, will ensure we have the resources we need to fight for the values we share through the Democratic convention.
Donald Trump's nomination means the Democratic Party has a generational opportunity to establish itself as the party that will fight to provide health care as a right for every man, woman and child in this country.
The party that will lead the way to tuition-free college so kids can graduate without crushing debt. The party that takes our democracy back from the oligarchy that Trump and Jeb Bush represent.
That is what the political revolution is about, and why your contribution is so important.
