A big shout out to Robert B for the link to this post in The Nation.

The US needs Bernie in the White House to get things rolling in the right direction.

Go Bernie!

If you can carry out duties on a smaller scale, without alienating too many folks, the chances are you can replicate that on a larger scale.

Bernie is one to try to find the solution that works well and fairly for all the people concerned. He is time tested and as an Independent he receives both Parties votes as well as the Independents. As he said, don't underestimate in him his ability to do well.

Go Bernie.

Noted. Thanks so much for posting, Lynn.
Excellent article that I wish every single American could read. It would truly open their eyes, and we would have Pres. Bernie Sanders. Signed petition Dandelion posted, too.

I heard this on a Rick Perry campaign ad recently: “If we’re gonna reside in this American dream again, we need a president who tells the American people the truth. We need a president who has done the right thing; we need a president who bridges the partisan divide rather than wide—who brings people together! We must do right--”

At this point, I’m screaming, “Yeah! Yeah! Rick Perry is right! (for once!) WE NEED BERNIE SANDERS!! BER—NIE! BER—NIE! BER--NIE!”

See, Rick Perry ain’t so dumb!

--Whaddaya mean, he was talking about himself? No, no, that’d be STUPID! Rick Perry can’t be STUPID, look at him, he’s wearing glasses and everything!


--Okay, yeah, you got me, he’s an idiot.

I'm voting for Bernie, and this article confirmed all the good reasons why. Now, how do we get the masses to actually read/learn about the candidates, and then vote?

Sanders and Warren should serve as Co-Presidents of our beleaguered country. However, if Bernie wins the nomination, I will be more than fine with that!
