Teddy Roosevelt had The Square Deal. FDR had The New Deal. Bernie Sanders has The Real Deal.In the context of historical political realignments, Bernie will be as much of a game changer as TR and FDR.
I think this meme puts Bernie Sanders’s platform and this entire movement in a perfect historical perspective. Like Teddy Roosevelt and Franklin Delano Roosevelt, Bernie is also a visionary leader who is daring to take on an entrenched system of greed and destruction that has gone too far. For more historical context, watch Ken Burns’ The Roosevelts
TR's Square Deal https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Square_Deal
had "the 3 C's"
: Conservation of natural resources, Control of corporations, and Consumer protection.
FDR's New Deal https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/New_Deal
had "the 3 R's"
: Relief, Recovery, and Reform. That is Relief for the unemployed and poor; Recovery of the economy to normal levels; and Reform of the financial system to prevent a repeat depression.
Bernie's Real Deal
has The 3 E's
: Economy, Equality, and Environment roughly based on his 3 central issues https://berniesanders.com/issues/
Income and Wealth Inequality, Getting Big Money Out of Politics, and Climate Change & Environment.
It is important that we understand how significant this is, and frame it properly before the corporate media and conservative propagandists try to define Bernie in a negative light. And you know
those attacks will start to happen the moment they realize he is not just a dark horse candidate, but is actually going to win the Democratic nomination.
