Are You With Sen. Bernie Sanders?

Sen. Bernie Sanders will only run for president if The People are prepared to take on the billionaire class with him.

When you run on the platform I’m giving thought to running on, that is, taking on the military industrial complex, taking on Wall Street, taking on the insurance companies, taking on everybody – I have to ascertain if there is support in this country. Are there people prepared to take on the billionaire class? {…} Are people so demoralized, or are they prepared to jump into the political process?

No one else is going to tell you this. It may be that we are at a stage where we can’t beat these guys [billionaire class]. They’re just too powerful. But I believe in what I have got to do, and many of us, we got to continue the fight. We cannot let a handful of billionaires control the future of this country.

Are you with Sen. Bernie Sanders and his fight to restore American democracy? You need to let him know. You need to spread the word.

Many people want Sen. Elizabeth Warren to run for President in 2016. But she consistently refutes that idea. She likes her job as Senator. She would have to leave that office to run for President. What would we do if we didn’t have Sen. Warren in the Senate? As a Democrat, she is (almost single-handedly) shifting the Democratic Party to a more progressive stand. (Where it needs to be, if it wants to differentiate itself from the Republican Party.)

Now, Sen. Bernie Sanders is considering running for President in 2016. He is an Independent, and therefore uniquely free of special interest campaign money. He will need huge grassroots support in order to run. Are we The People going to support him? Are we The People ready to stand up against the billionaire class? Here is a strong man who cares enough to lead us in the battle – but he needs us to care also.

    Bernie is OK, but I think former Gov. of Maryland Martin O’Malley may have more appeal as the “left-of-Hillary” candidate.

    O’Malley has been visiting New Hampshire and Iowa and may have some momentum.

    Bernie Sanders and Dennis Kucinich are the only people I’ve supported for president for about 15 years. (I always write in my vote). Bernie’s only weakness in my book is his support of Israel as an ally, but on all other issues his stance coincides with exactly what the country needs.

    Hopefully, more people will see the necessity to make a stand and forget about the “lesser of two evis” compromise. It’s still evil and look what it’s brought us – two corporate subsidiaries of Wall Street.

    Thanks. Always good to see something about Bernie making the rounds.

    Bernie Sanders, in this this particularly transformational generation of human history, is the moral, obvious choice for President of the United States in 2016.
