What Bernie Sanders Gave to America Today | The Independent Thinker | July 12, 2016

This is one of the most beautifully written and touching pieces I've read in a long time. Whether you were for Bernie Sanders or against Bernie, this article is well worth the read. I hope you enjoy it as much as I did.

Nice sentiment. I hope this writer for the Independent Thinker is right. It's a balm on my emotions.

To see the endorsement as self-sacrifice for the small crumb of college aid only for low income families is generous. I can't quite get to the point I feel it's enough. I hope the writer is right that tens of thousands of sticks will be wielded, but I can't help but feel that we've been here before as a nation, and those sticks will be dropped because the more pressing need of survival for middle and low income families on a day to day basis do not allow the luxury of holding politicians to heel when they succumb to the siren call of corporate money, lobbying perks, and unlimited campaign contributions.

We had a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity and we were cheated out of it by a corrupt and rigged election process. Not because we didn't get enough votes, but because the establishment controls the process and the counting of the votes. Bernie did his best, I won't fault him. Only time will tell if people will remain awake and will continue to fight.

Where we are today...
2016 Primary Legacy gifted to the country by Senator Bernie Sanders.
If we're smart we will pursue the Revolution for political change and always remember.
With a pitched battle over ideas and policy looming at this July’s convention in Philadelphia, the angry chorus urging Bernie Sanders’ concession and “Democratic unity” grows deafening, even among some who voted for him. But the reality is, Bernie can’t (and shouldn't) concede—he would lose all his leverage to negotiate a more progressive Democratic Party and would be neglecting the very ideas that inspired his remarkable campaign with its 12 mil...

Socialism is not unknown to American History.
Democratic socialism used to be a vibrant force in American life. During the first two decades of the twentieth century, the Socialist Party of America, headed by the charismatic union leader, Eugene V.
