I see Bernie as one who challenges accepted views and transforms society, moving towards justice.

It's more holistic thinking, being able to see the big picture intuitively and inspiring change.

Bernie Sanders: It's time to complete the revolution we started

Opinion
Bernie Sanders

In 2016, our campaign began the political revolution. Now, it is time to defeat Donald Trump, complete that revolution and implement the vision we fought for

Mon 25 Feb 2019 08.31 EST


Excerpts:

The only way we will defeat Donald Trump and the special interests that support him is with a grassroots movement - the likes of which has never been seen in American history. We must stand together - women and men, black, white, Latino, Native American, Asian American, gay and straight, young and old, native born and immigrant - to address the challenges we face as a nation.

At a time when our infrastructure is crumbling and we have an affordable housing crisis, we can create millions of good paying jobs rebuilding our country. Together, we can raise the minimum wage to a living wage of $15 an hour, provide pay equity for women and guarantee all workers paid family and medical leave.

We cannot afford to wait any longer to address the existential threat of climate change. We must transform our energy system away from fossil fuels toward energy efficiency and sustainable energy, creating millions of jobs in the process.

While we spend almost twice as much per capita on health care as any nation, our health outcomes are worse and life expectancy is in decline. It is time for us to join every other major country and guarantee health care to all people as a right, not a privilege, through a Medicare-for-all program.

In 2016, our campaign began the political revolution. The ideas we fought for, which then were considered “radical” or “extreme,” are now supported by a majority of Americans. Now, it is time to defeat Donald Trump, complete that revolution and implement the vision we fought for.

🐦 MARCH 3 Bernie Sanders to Be Part of Bridge Crossing Jubilee in Selma

Excerpt:

Organizers of the Bridge Crossing Jubilee in Selma have announced that presidential candidate Sen. Bernie Sanders of Vermont will speak at the Martin and Coretta Scott King Unity Breakfast. The breakfast is one part of the annual event which remembers the 1965 Bloody Sunday march for civil rights.

“U.S. Sen. Bernie Sanders is a unique figure in the American electoral landscape,” organizer and former state Sen. Hank Sanders said in a statement. “He will join other presidential candidates, some of whom have already been announced. We look forward to each and every candidate sharing their visions with people from all over the nation and beyond,” Sanders said.

The 2019 Martin and Coretta King Unity Breakfast will be on Sunday, March 3, at 7:30 a.m. on the campus of Wallace Community College Selma. Former United States Secretary of State and 2016 Democratic Presidential Nominee Hillary Clinton is being honored at this year’s King Unity Breakfast. In addition, 2020 U.S. Presidential candidates U.S. Senator Sherrod Brown and former U.S. Secretary of HUD Julian Castro committed earlier this year to speak at the Unity Breakfast.
