[–]bernie-sanders[S] 2677 points 5 days ago Thank you very much for your support. And we look forward to your ideas as to how we can run the most effective grassroots campaign possible. Certainly one of the areas that redditors can help on is in making sure that young people throughout this country understand the importance of politics and government. It is an American tragedy that in the last election, about 80 percent of young people did not vote. That is exactly what the ruling class of this country wants and we have got to change it. So mobilizing, educating and organizing young people is very much at the top of my agenda. permalinksaveparentreportgive goldREPLY load more comments (85 replies)

The government killed Aaron Swartz.

Interesting how Reddit would wonder why no one supports it.

America is a big country if there is going to be change there will have to be a big movement, we will see if all those people who visited the park really want change or was it just their moment and now they will be swallowed up by time, some because they fear being part of something big.

Is that why you refuse to help the Dems at 2910 N Central Ave, Phoenix, AZ 85012 ?

Fear? That combined with time swallowing you up?

Your posts are more projection than you realize.
