Senator Bernie Sanders demands that the United States’ elected government represent us, its people. He observes a disturbing trend where the average citizen is disenfranchised, and fears that we are losing what makes America great — our system of democracy.He’s done more to raise his profile in the last 18 months than he’s done in over 30 years in the House and Senate. He’s managed to drag the Democratic Party left after years of centrist posturing by Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama. The need for real campaign finance reform is not a progressive issue. It is not a conservative issue. It is an American issue.
Bernie has said:
“We are moving rapidly away from our democratic heritage into an oligarchic form of society where today we are experiencing a government of the billionaires, by the billionaires, and for the billionaires.”
Let’s be honest and acknowledge what we are talking about. We are talking about a rapid movement in this country toward a political system in which a handful of very wealthy people and special interests will determine who gets elected or who does not get elected. That is not what this country is supposed to be about. That was not Abraham Lincoln’s vision of a government of the people, by the people, and for the people.
As former President Jimmy Carter recently said, unlimited money in politics, “violates the essence of what made America a great country in its political system. Now, it’s just an oligarchy, with unlimited political bribery being the essence of getting the nominations for president or to elect the president. And the same thing applies to governors and U.S. Senators and congress members. So now we’ve just seen a complete subversion of our political system as a payoff to major contributors, who want and expect and sometimes get favors for themselves after the election’s over.”
But as Bernie said you can’t change a corrupt system by taking his money :
So what do we do :
We need to work together to fix our government. Bernie believes we can do so:
“We need people who are ready to take on the handful of billionaires holding the power, to tell them, ‘Enough is enough. This country belongs to us. This government belongs to us.”
Bernie only one to lead a revolution that will overthrow the oligarchy, which will eliminate much of the corruption. Implementing enhanced transparency requirements will cut corruption down even more. A promise of jail time to those who insist on trying to buy influence and/or votes would keep what remains at a minimum.Bernie fights for what he believe is right he has done it in the past in the 60’s when he was arrested while staging a civil rights sit-in but that didn’t stop him it make him even stronger.
But Bernie can’t do this alone fir better future he has to have the support of his followers ,would you let Bernie stand alone in his fight the fight for the future. Is this a fight of a One Man Against Corrupt System or a fight of a millions who stand behind Bernie the system is rigged and it is trying to stop the revolution bur they can’t stop millions? If you think that this story would help Bernie revolution share this as a support for Bernie!
