Bernie Sanders is the ONE!
I chose this picture of Bernie Sanders because of the masses of people that show up for him and his message for a better America. One million online contributors have donated to his campaign. Bernie Sanders does not want or ever need to have a Super PAC. We the people are his Super PAC. We the people are the political revolution. If you care to find out who Bernie Sanders is then you need to Google what his positions are on any issue. He has voted consistently for the same issues he backs today for his run for President of the United States of America for decades. He doesn't flip and flop because it polls better to be for or against anything. Little known fact, Bernie does not pay for polling from his campaign. It would not change his mind so why spend the money to ask?
I am an online news junkie and for the life of me I can not see how the main stream media is not picking up on the fact that Bernie Sanders is beating the hell out of Hillary Clinton across the country? Hillary shows up in Boston and a few folks show up. Bernie Sanders shows up and the facility can not hold the 32,000 people that want to see him speak. This is not the first time this has happened. Seattle maxed out capacity, LA maxed out capacity, and the list goes on. Everywhere Bernie Sanders wants to speak they have to upgrade capacity sites and still make room for people that can not fit into the facility. If I were the person with the job of booking Bernie after the first debate, I would be looking at huge football stadiums and asking the recently tax free NFL to support democracy for free. Cause this is America, the land of the free (bernie sanders is against citizens united decisions by the the supreme court that allows billionaires to buy elections).
Anywho, back to Bernie Sanders. People put this label on him that he is a Socialist. Wake up! Teddy Roosevelt, a Republican, was a Socialist! He broke up the big lobbies that controlled everything. (bernie wants to break up the too big to fail banks and wall street firms) Teddy even protected land by starting the National Parks program. (bernie knows that global warming is proven by SCIENCE and we need to confront it now as a nation)
Then we have FDR that served four terms because America was broken and broke from the Great Depression. Franklin Delano Roosevelt tried every idea that came across his desk to get America back on its feet. The New Deal was a work in progress. He put people to work building bridges, building damns, building our infrastructure that we all take for granted today (bernie sanders is proposing creating 13 million jobs to rebuild our crumbling infrastructure). FDR created the first safety net called Social (socialist) Security to take care of our elderly that at the time were shuttered off to poor farms or cast into the street if they had no family to care for them. That would be the check our retired friends and family get every month to support themselves after paying into a system that is OUTSIDE the federal government budget (bernie sanders wants to expand social security not repeal it). Then FDR created the GI Bill for all of those that returned from WWII. One of the most successful programs in history where 5.6 million veterans went to school or got other training to become part of the boom in future years (bernie sanders will pay for his college for all for free is by putting a tax on speculation on wall street. we bailed them all out, time for pay back).
We can't fail to mention Republican Dwight D. Eisenhower, the man that created the boom of the 50's by building our highway system that started right here in Saint Charles, MO. Then went on to expand Social Security to people that are disabled (bernie sanders wants to expand social security and medicare and not cut it).
Fast forward to LBJ creating Medicare. July 30th, 1965. Holy crap, socialism hit America again. If you are poor and elderly, this is your medical plan. Medicare is one of the most efficient healthcare plans in the world today. You may get away with double or triple billing an insurance company but Medicare with fine your ass for being incompetent. Fast forward to Obama and he creates the Affordable Care Act that our friends on the right like to call Obama Care. It is an amazing plan that despite all the doom and gloom opponents has actually dropped the rising costs of healthcare insurance. 17 million people have been added since it inception and the writing of this post. If more states signed up for expanding Medicare then the number would triple or more of new people paying into the market (bernie sanders wants a Medicare for all system that is paid for)(everything bernie sanders proposes is paid for)
Last but not least, Bernie Sanders has been in the forefront for veterans and fighting to get them the benefits they all deserve for all of his political career. Most of those bills were killed by the GOP controlled congress because they are such Hawks but do not care about the people coming back home that need care. Send you to war and forget you after they put the flag down to accept a check from the companies that profited from you service to America.
Rock ON Bernie Sanders! Loving what you are saying and backing you 100%. You are picking up the momentum and pulling the centrist people on the right like Morning Joe your way as well. (you don't have any hidden email accounts I hope???).
For all you young college kids and high school kids that want a future that is better than what your parents had, scream at the top of your lungs who you support! Vote for Bernie Sanders. Make your generation the one that made a difference. Show up at every event in massive numbers. Bernie can not do this alone. He needs your voice now and he will need you voice once he is President. He can't do it alone. Be a part of the political revolution!
