America's populist Dream Ticket?
        or too progressive to win?

Some say Bernie Sanders will need a more-centrist running mate to counterbalance him.  Or would a 'power-populist' team of Sanders/Warren be just the ticket to engage millions of fed-up voters in the election?  

Here's a quick run-down of how they stand together on some of today's most pressing issues:

➤Cancel or reduce the burden of student loan debt
➤Pay equity for women
➤Ensure that billionaires and large corporations pay their fair share of taxes
➤Institute single-payer, universal health care for all
➤Break up banks that are 'too big to fail' and hold them accountable
➤Tax corporate polluters
➤Expand and strengthen federal social insurance programs (Social Security, Medicare and Medicaid)
➤Free college education for all qualified students
➤Make it easier for workers to join unions
➤End the corrosive influence of Citizens United

Hmmmm, those seem like mainstream American positions to me!

My opinion is that a Sanders/Warren ticket would energize the American  public like no other team possibly could.  They both are incorruptible, powerful speakers with long records of advocating for ordinary Americans.  They both have masses of super-dedicated supporters who will turn out in droves to volunteer.  Could their synergy be unbeatable?

Our country is so demoralized, so cynical of the political process.  To counter this, we will need TWO politicians who are on the same-page, and support one-another's positions. I think this could be just the ticket to bring to fruition a true populist revolution in America!

What do you think?

Story
Tagline
I'm a barrel of fun, creativity, debate and adventure. Come take a ride..
Introduction
I'm a creative geek. Pretty good way to sum it up in a short line. I enjoy reading, writing, webpage development, gaming, drinking, anything that involves nature and the outdoors, women, politics, space, and socializing. The order does not mean I like any of these things more than the others.

Obviously my days are pretty busy, because if I'm not doing one of these things then I'm doing another. I always have time to make a new friend or meet someone who just might be able to capture my imagination for a while.

Currently I work as a front-end developer for an up-and-coming social network, and I am the owner and developer of The Den of Amateur Writing (A social network for writers of all skills and ages.)

G+ me up!
Bragging rights
I have 2 educations, I've lived in 4 provinces of Canada, and around 15 cities.
