I want to donate as much as possible, for me, to Bernie. What are the rules? I've gotten mailings from Bernie saying a limit of $200 per election cycle. Is that, like, once every 4 years for a senator or total for his presidetial run and anything else I've donated to him over some period of time? I could probably go the $200, but not much more unless I can do more over the whole period of the 2016 campaign. But I see other information saying I'm not limited to $200, but a much bigger amount, which unfortunately I can't swing. I'm one of those "small donors". I got emails from Bernie for 2016 and Friends of Bernie that are Act Blue and they have donation bullets for as much as $500. I'm confused. What are the rules? I tried to google question and got confusing links to fec rules. If anyone knows a simple answer for me and where my money would do the best good I'd totally appreciate it. Campaign finance isn't my strong point obviously. Sharon

I don't have the answer to your question but I too got the Act Blue email and donated. I wish Elizabeth Warren AND Berine Sanders were running TOGETHER but it seems that Elizabeth Warren isn't interested in becoming president even though I think she would be an awesome president especially with Bernie Sanders at her side.

So with that said, I WILL support Bernie Sanders!

"The Saddest Thing Is This Won't Be Breaking News"

Thom plus logo As the world burns, and more and more fossil fuels are being used every day planet-wide, atmospheric carbon dioxide levels passed 416 ppm this week at the Mauna Loa Observatory in Hawaii. In the 300,000 years since the emergence of modern humans, carbon dioxide levels have never been this high.
