Bernie Sanders is the “change” everyone thought they were voting for in 2008 when we put Obama in office. We’ve been waiting decades to reverse the corporate takeover of America that took a huge leap forward with Ronald Reagan’s ascendancy.
We really thought Obama could do it. But he got plowed under by the same forces that have turned this country back to a new gilded age. A whole lot of Bernie Sanders voters pulled the lever for Donald Trump for the same reason they voted for Obama; he told them he was going to change things. Hardly anyone is happy with the outcome but very few think Hillary would have taken us in a better direction. It would have more of the same corporatism.
We’re ready for an actual political revolution. Even if Fox, MSNBC and the powers that be all think we need a more “moderate” Democrat in office. Yes, they’re scared but the tsunami is coming. They aren’t going to be able to hold it back much longer.
