Dear Friends,

If you watched any of the Republican convention last night then you know they’re on fire.

Now we have to be on fire too.

So here is the plan…

The Democratic Party is giving us mixed messages: party leaders are saying they’re privately trying to convince the President to release his delegates, while the DNC is actually trying to lock in President Biden’s nomination as soon as possible. In fact, they’re having a Rules and Bylaws meeting this Friday in order to create a virtual roll call to nominate the President as early as next week.

We must not let this happen.

That’s why I created the video above, for those of you who might be delegates to the convention – or know anyone who is that you could send it to. The only chance to stop the virtual roll call is for enough delegates to step in – to say they are no longer automatically committed to the President’s nomination, according to the dictates of their conscience and their conviction that the process must now be opened up.

Please support this effort in any way you can. Our team is at work spreading the video and the information – remember, the Open The Convention HOTLINE is 301-244-9057, or people can write for further information to [email protected].

For some inspiration, remember these words of Winston Churchill:

Never, ever ever ever ever give up. As long as we have faith in our own cause and an unconquerable will to win, victory will not be denied us. You create your own universe as you go along.

If you’re not a convention delegate but you still want to help get the convention opened up, please call your Democratic Congressperson or Senators plus your state Democratic party to express your opinion.

Your support is so appreciated. LET’S DO THIS.

All my best,

Marianne Signature

If I make it, it won’t be because of power brokers within the Democratic Party and it won’t be because of billionaire donors.

It will be because of the single mother with two kids, one of whom has special needs but Mom has to work two jobs and she can’t afford health care.

It will be because of the community college students who are living out of their cars and selling their blood plasma to make it all work.

It will be because of young adults – and their aging parents – who know something is wrong when they’ve done everything right but the kids in their twenties and thirties can’t afford a place to live on their own.

For Marianne Williamson,
the Bernie Sanders Lane Looks Wide Open

May 25, 2023 | Mini Racker

Four years ago, before Gabriela Orozco was old enough to vote, she knew Bernie Sanders was her candidate to take on Donald Trump. She liked how the Vermont Senator wanted to remake the federal government to help those most in need.

A New Day for America

A new kind of American—a new kind of thinker and a new kind of citizen—needs to arise now. And quickly. We the Problem, We the Promise, We the People.

Dear Friends,

As of today, I am unsuspending my Presidential campaign.

All of us have noticed America’s political dynamics are moving in a disturbing direction. Donald Trump’s power is on the incline, and President Biden’s is on the decline. More and more people are saying the quiet part out loud: that despite the fact that the President deserves credit for many of his accomplishments, he is clearly a weak candidate to defeat Donald Trump in 2024.

I, however, am not. My ability to arouse in Americans the angels of our better nature is the most powerful antidote to Trump’s dark and authoritarian vision.

I suspended my campaign because we were losing the horse race. But there is something much bigger than the horse race that’s at stake here. In the words of Mohammed Ali, ‘When the mission is right, the odds don’t matter.”

We cannot sit idly by while the  D.C. political class sleepwalks this country into disaster. Too many have followed the directives of the status quo for too long, but we are awakening now. We are ready to act, to take the wheel of history into our hands and turn it in another direction.

We need a President who stands for a new beginning in America, and whether I can help do that as President or in some other way, unsuspending the campaign is a necessary next step.

We will win on the promise of restoring America’s middle class and waging peace both domestically and internationally. From #MedicareForAll to #CeasefireNow in exchange for the hostages, from tuition free college and tech school to a guaranteed living wage, from waging peace to repudiating America’s forever war machine, from subsidized child care to ending America’s War on Drugs, our platform is the winning one.

I will respond to the cult-like personality of Donald Trump with a light-filled vision of hope and possibility. We will become once again a “government of the people, by the people, and for the people” at a time when corporate interests have taken Washington hostage.

I hope you are as moved by this vision as I am. You have supported the campaign before, and I hope you feel moved to support it again.

We must rise to the occasion like never before; so much is riding on what we do now. Even if the most I can do is influence the President, that in itself is a goal worth striving for.  For those of us who are deeply committed to Trump not returning to the White House, it’s imperative that we do everything possible to help mount a winning campaign in 2024.

I hope you will help me do this. There is no time to waste. Please give generously so we can restart the engines and race to the top.

With gratitude and conviction, 

Marianne Signature

Dear Friends,

In 2016, there were two candidates telling people their pain was legitimate and their rage was valid – that the system indeed had been rigged against them. They were Bernie Sanders and Donald Trump.

Only one of them, however, wanted to do something about it. The other mainly sought to harness all that anger for his own political purposes.

And here we are.

The rage that people were feeling then is still felt today. Has the system improved economically in the last two years? In some ways, yes. But in fundamental ways, no. It’s now baked into the cake that our corrupted political system is at the service of the few at the expense of the many. And it will not disrupt itself.

One in four Americans still live with medical debt. A third of America’s workforce work for less than $15 an hour; half can’t afford a one bedroom apartment. Half our seniors live on less than $25,000 a year. The United States has the highest poverty rate of any advanced democracy.

If you’re in the top 20 per cent of American earners, the economy works well. And for that we can be grateful. But that 20 per cent live on an island that is surrounded by a sea of economic despair. Within that sea, a myriad of personal and societal dysfunctions breed easily – from chronic anxiety and addiction to ideological capture by genuinely psychotic, even fascist elements of our society.

We must respond to this situation, for it represents an unsustainable disquiet.

Franklin Roosevelt said we wouldn’t have to worry about a fascist takeover in America so long as democracy delivered on its promises. Yes, there is a genuine fascist threat in America today. But we can’t just fight the disease; we must build up our societal immune system, as well. That means we must build up our people.

We must provide a massive infusion of economic hope and opportunity to the over 70 per cent of Americans who say they feel no economic hope, who simply do what they can to survive what they know is an inherently unjust economic system. Their dreams, and the dreams of their children, are limited. They are depressed and angry about it, and if those feelings are not assuaged – if their needs are not met – then America will be in even bigger trouble than we are now.

That is why I am running for President. I have had a forty year career working up close and personal with people whose lives are in trouble, and too many are in trouble now.

Our government “of the people, by the people, and for the people” has become a government “of the corporations, by the corporations, and for the corporations.” Our public policies regularly do more to serve the goal of short-term profit maximization for corporate and billionaire donors, than to serve the goal of safety, health and well-being of the American people.

The humanitarian values at the core of our Declaration of Independence have been replaced by a soulless economics as the governing principle of our civilization.  The tentacles of hyper-capitalism, devoid of any ethical or moral consideration, now reach greedily into every corner of our society. A Second Gilded Age is upon us, income disparity as great as at any time in our history, and everything from climate catastrophe to AI catastrophe to nuclear catastrophe now loom as genuine threats to our civilization.

It is time to turn around.

In the words of President John F. Kennedy, “Those who make peaceful revolution impossible make violent revolution inevitable.” In the years ahead of us, America is going to change. It is up to us to make the change a conscious, wise and responsible one.  As President, I will make sure we do.

A corporate aristocracy – from insurance and pharmaceutical companies to Big Ag to Big Food to chemical companies to gun manufacturers to Big Oil to Big Tech to defense contractors – now tyrannize this country, and the days of their overreach and entitlement must end. No one thing is going to make that happen, but a president who is willing to use the power of the executive branch to stand up to what Roosevelt called the “economic royalists” is a good solid beginning. And I will be that.

As Americans, we need a season of repair, a new beginning, a renewed faith in what’s possible. Our political imaginations can flourish once more, if we allow the better angels of our nature to emerge among us. I dedicate this campaign to the people, to the spirit in our hearts, and to the possibility of fundamental change.

With your help, we can spread this message far and wide and set America on the path of a new beginning.
