In the discussion thread: WHY Do You SUPPORT Bernie Sanders? [View all]

28. A Bernie Sanders comes along about once every 100 years. Bernie is a true transformative candidate

who is honest and authentic with a 40 year history demonstrating those qualities. Barack Obama wished to be a transformative candidate; Bernie IS a transformative candidate. Given the very real crisis we are experiencing, with a corrupt oligarchy having replaced our democracy, with the immediate crisis of global warming driving an imperative to transform our energy systems away from fossil fuels, with income inequality surpassing even that of the Gilded Age, with a corrupt criminal justice system design to oppress the citizenry (if POC), we must stop the madness and seek a new humane, just, and fair direction. So, as things go, I have waited since RFK was killed for a Bernie Sanders to come along and I will stick with and provide my small voice of support to Bernie Sanders at least until November when I will place my vote for Bernie Sanders for President - for my children and grand children.

Signed, a lifelong FDR Democrat.
