  1. TYT not covering the election results is so dumb.. Literally no one else is covering it so the fact that they aren't bringing any awareness to the fact Bernie is crushing just a few days after interviewing him is awful… Easter, y u do dis

  2. Can anyone help me find cheap round trip travel from Memphis ,TN. Sadly even with working60-70 hours a week I am unable to afford such a trip.

  3. I've gone to the website listed in the doobly doo. However, it is still unclear what exactly you are trying to accomplish. What, exactly, is the action that will define victory or defeat with this movement?

  4. I want to do this! The action is a march and sit-in for all americans to have the right to vote. State Picture IDs and proof of address should be all you need to vote. When there are malfunctions that interrupt the process, those voters prevented from voting should be given the right to submit their votes! #DemocracySpring #ArizonaVoterSuppression #BernieOrBust #Trump2016 – Both Sanders and Trump voters should join in D.C. for this event. Anti-Establishment – We Are Many

  5. Sweet I don't have to work that day, was planning on going to dc soon anyways, I'm only four hours away, I'll be there!!!!

  6. If you want Killer Mike on The Young Turks, sign this petition!

  7. beware of false flags. seems to me the powers that be would consider this a prime opportunity for 'isis' to strike america

  8. Dude Im skipping calculus for this. Im getting me a selfie with cenk. Watch out for two college hijabis holding almond milk lattes. Its goin be LITTT

  9. Democracy spring, wow thats a terrible name. First off it just sounds bad, and second, maybe we shouldn't relate our uprising with the uprising that destabilized a region even further.

  10. why dont you go back to turkey with your other islamic fighting friends and get in a rea argument with real guns. we dont want you in the u.s. just stirring up sh_t

  11. this is nice but you should be more clear about what you want, what are "free and fair elections" exactly? taken out of context most people would say you already have them, in fact a lot of people around the world would kill to have the democracy you have. I'm not saying this is "first world problems", but by this description it kinda sounds like it

  12. Best of luck Cenk! Hope some of them weasels pay attention. Just remember to bring some water along wash out the pepper spray.

  13. Love it Cenk. Can you fill all of us in on what happened in Arizona hearings regarding voter suppression yesterday??

  14. wait why april? I'm still in school at that time. plus I won't have enough time to buy a gas mask to filler out the tear gas or a Kevlar jackets to them rubber bullets!

  15. You were the one who can be the voice of reason, facts and wisdom. You have turned into the Glen Beck of left. You can be successful without being arrogant. WTF is this? A publicity stunt? I was your fan but after that cheap shot at Anderson Cooper and a lot of other none sense arrogant comments like Fox News i got disappointed.

  17. Preferential Voting! Preferential Voting! The whole Citizens United decision actually has some valid First Amendment backing. Changing from a FPTP system to a Preferential System, lowering barriers to run for office, fixes the issue while avoiding a first amendment debate. LET'S FIND OUT if the Koch Bros. can buy everyone with their free speech. I will run for office under a system where I can easily get my name on the ballot. Contribute to my campaign, Kochs!

  18. Watch out for Corporate Provocateurs…They will try to cause a scene and paint the gathering as violent hippie communist socialists.

  19. Like many others, I would dearly love to "March on Washington" and sit in solidarity with you all! My wife and I cannot afford to, as retirees, but we will spread the word and encourage those who can. Finally! This will be the first of many! Thank you!

  20. Can't have a fair election when the candidates are allowed to go back on everything they suggest. Google Voter Consumer Rights and don't consider anyone who things they deserve they are a suitable representative when they either have no ideas they have the conviction to support, or you have no right to hold them accountable for lying.

  21. There is a staff of volunteers to answer your questions and what not. Go to the website, sign up, look for ride sharing or couch serfing if needed
    Im not sure if you have to login to access, but here is the ride sharing stuff http://www.democracyspring.org/ridesharing

    Housing ? http://www.democracyspring.org/housing_board

    Who do I ask locally? http://www.democracyspring.org/localorganizing

  22. anyone remember the last time Cenk organised a protest? the vid is probably still on this channel. for those that haven't seen it, there was Cenk trying to lead about 12 people in a chant lol, all the participants looked like middle aged losers. The event was so low energy it made a Jeb Bush event look like a rock concert.

  23. Many of Bernie supporters are the educated youth. When spring break ends, they go back to school. Comon guys a week earlier woulda made a huge difference

  24. NOOOOO!!!! I had to sell my car two years ago and won't be able to make it there!!!!! If I had the money and the time though I would walk from Georgia all the way to Washington just to support the message}:

  25. Just signed up and chose the 'I'm ready to risk arrest' option! Cenk I've been watching you fools for almost 10 years now so if I walk up to you a little star-struck, and mumble some indecipherable shit, I'm just sayin hey and I apologize in advance for being a weirdo haha! See ya's there!

  26. You should invite Jeremy Corbyn from the UK to speak at this event. Socialism across international borders is needed to bring Multi National Corporations & Establishment Politics to heel. Plus the easiest way to control global tax avoidance.

  27. it's about time people organize and show these bastards pocket fillers who have the real power. The more people show up the more they can reach.

  28. The Congressional Act of 2016:

    1. No Tenure / No Pension. A Congressman collects a salary while in office and receives no pay when they are out of office.
    2. Congress (past, present & future) participates in Social Security. All funds in the Congressional retirement fund move to the Social Security system immediately. All future funds flow into the Social Security system, and Congress participates with the American people. It may not be used for any other purpose.
    3. Congress can purchase their own retirement plan, just as all Americans do.
    4. Congress will no longer vote themselves a pay raise. Congressional pay will rise by the lower of CPI or 3%.
    5. Congress loses their current health care system and participates in the same health care system as the American people.
    6. Congress must equally abide by all laws they impose on the American people.
    7. All contracts with past and present Congressmen are void effective 1/1/17. The American people did not make this contract with Congressmen. Congressmen made all these contracts for themselves. Serving in Congress is an honor, not a career. The Founding Fathers envisioned citizen legislators, so ours should serve their term's), then go home and back to work.
    8) Pass a law that says that anytime there is a deficit of more than 3% of GDP, all sitting members of Congress (both the House of Representatives & the Senate) are ineligible for re-election.
    9) Enforce no insider trading legislation for Congressmen

  29. not gonna lie, that seems very radical, awesome but radical. i would love to occupy house or senate, but yeah.

  30. Question. If citizens united gives corporations rights of an individual, can corporations vote? What I'm thinking is there must be millions of small businesses which could vote, as a mass protest?

  31. BECAUSE OF AGEISM I CANT GO TO THE DEMOCRACY SPRING MY DREAM TO FIGHT FOR THIS COUNTRY IS BEING CRUSHED BY MY AGE

  32. ohhh how I wish I could go! I love being canadian, but its times like these I wish I could join the fight in America!
