How Bernie Won Jeff Weaver epub

The brilliant manager of Bernie Sanders’s 2016 presidential campaign shows how Bernie took on the entire establishment and changed modern American politics for good.

When Jeff Weaver hopped in a car with Bernie Sanders in the summer of 1986, he had no idea the Vermont backroads would lead them all the way to the 2016 presidential campaign.

In How Bernie Won, Weaver shows how Bernie sparked a movement that would sweep America and inspire millions. He vowed not to run a negative campaign. He would focus on policies, not personalities. He would not be beholden to big money. He would actually make America work for ordinary people. Weaver also shows how they overcame significant challenges: A media that thrived on negative campaigns. A party controlled by insiders. And a political system dependent on big money. Weaver explains how Bernie beat them all and, in doing so, went from having little national name recognition when he entered to the race to being one of the most respected and well-known people in the world by its end—because, Weaver argues, Bernie won the race.

He moved the discussion from the concerns of the 1% to those of the 99%. He forced the Democrats to remember their populist roots. And he showed that an outsider with real ideas and ways to get them done could compete and win against the establishment’s hand-picked candidate.

From holding bags of “Bernie buttons” and picket-stick signs, to managing thousands of campaign workers, to looking ahead to 2020, Weaver chronicles the birth of a revolution that didn’t end in November 2016. It’s only just begun.

    How Bernie Won by Jeff Weaver is an interesting, engaging, candid and intelligent exposé of the political campaign of Bernie Sanders as 2016 candidate for US President. It is a documentary exegesis, a work of high integrity and offers valuable insights into 2016 US political campaign processes. Without meaningful campaign finance reforms, US election reforms and Wall St reforms in the US, were elections fair? Did the Democratic Party and its Superdelegates actually operate fairly and effectively in 2016 elections? Are future Democratic Party changes warranted, or will progressive and independent voters need to support a Progressive Party, Green Party or Working Families Party if the Democratic Party does not evolve or progress, narrowly ceding elections to Donald Trump, Republicans and oligarchic candidates funded by Wall St and big corporations? This book is highly recommended for all readers and should be of great interest to US voters of all political parties to improve the US election process, to maintain democracy, to foster world peace and to improve the environment and the quality of life on this planet.
