We started this website to make available information and resources for writing in Bernard Sanders for President of the United States of America on the November 2020 ballot.
Forty-three states provide space on their ballots for write-in candidates. At least six out of the seven states that do not accept write-in candidates are so-called “Red” states, meaning that most people who are allowed to vote were going to vote for the republican candidate regardless of who the candidate is at the time. Most of those states rely heavily on voter suppression.
It is our position that Joe “fingers” Biden will not win the 2020 election no matter what. The Democratic Establishment has shown itself to be as corrupt as any political establishment in the U.S. And that includes the present incumbent president. They will stop at nothing to preserve their power backed by all the monied reserves in the world, often called the oligarchy, or Wall Street. Neither Biden nor Trump have a platform, nor will they offer policies, because they intend to screw you with their royal sticks or fingers, as the case may be. And it’s going to hurt a great many people.
Nobody wants Biden for president, but only half (40–60 per cent) don’t want Trump. Voting for Biden is not going to work.
There is another branch of the people who would like blue folks to vote green. They know the Green Party will not win the election, but, they argue, if the Green Party gets five per cent of the vote the party will be eligible for federal funding in 2024. The Green Parry has been around for how long? Since 1996. And they have never gotten five per cent of the vote. Now is not the time to try for it based on fear. On the other hand, if someone is already connected to the Green Parry, previously committed to the Green Party, we are not trying to persuade you to vote otherwise. But to everyone else, this is not the time, do not vote Green Party out of fear, there is no good to come of it.
And there are people who are discusted with the whole electoral process, they are not motivated to vote at all.
We want to Breathe, not “hold our noses” and vote for the “lesser of two evils”. Biden is not the lesser of two evils, he is a variant of two evils. To Cornel West I say, voting for Biden is not radical.
Writing in Bernard Sanders on your 2020 ballot is radical. It could work if enough people do it.

The donation button is provided through Liberapay which makes any use anonymous to us. There are several options and it uses Stripe which we believe is the best and most secure payment provider on the planet at this time.
Of course, if you send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org we will have your email address but we will use it only to answer questions, or to send the requested information - ie. the printables we offer on the DIY page.
The petition is a little different. The petition host, Roots Action, will collect email addresses. We have no intention of using the email addresses because the campaign ends after the general election, November 3, 2020, and we do not have time to do anything with an email list.
