BERNIE SANDERS FOR PRESIDENT!

Sanders-021507-18335- 0004

By Brian Flagg,

“There is something profoundly wrong” when so much of the nation’s income goes to the top 1 percent of all earners.

“This grotesque level of inequality is immoral.”

Bernie Sanders is the Vermont Senator who yesterday spoke these words to 5,000 supporters along the shore of Lake Champlain as he kicked off his presidential campaign (Star, May 27, 2015).

I liked how he said “now is not the time for thinking small” and that we need a revolution to transform our country economically, politically, socially and environmentally.

Most politicos are posturing or outright lying when saying things like this.

Not Bernie Sanders. For decades he has been on the front lines of the struggle for peace and justice. And he has always proudly proclaimed his belief in socialism.

Por Brian Flagg,

“Hay algo profundamente equivocado,” cuando muchos de los ingresos de la nación van hacia el 1 por ciento de los asalariados.

“Este grotesco nivel de desigualdad es inmoral.”

Bernie Sanders es el Senador de Vermont quien dijo estas palabras ayer a 5,000 partidarios, a orillas del Lago Champlain, mientras dio inicio a su campaña presidencial (Star, Mayo 27, 2015).

Me gusta como él dijo “ahora no es el momento de pensar en pequeño,” y que necesitamos una revolución para transformar a nuestro país económica, política, social y ambientalmente.

La mayoría de los políticos solo están posando o de plano mintiendo cuando dicen cosas como estas.

No Bernie Sanders. Por décadas él ha estado al frente de lucha por la paz y la justicia. El siempre orgullosamente ha proclamado su creencia en el socialismo.

  1. Good that you trust him, Brian! I don’t follow politics enough to know what each policy-maker’s track record is…now, to watch the campaigns unfold!
