For a Political Revolution   


by Senator Bernie Sanders

Snippet 1
Quote
Meanwhile, as the rich become much richer, the level of income and wealth inequality has reached obscene and unimaginable levels. In the United States, we have the most unequal level of wealth and income distribution of any major country on earth, and worse now then at any other time since the 1920s. Today, the top one-tenth of 1 percent of our nation owns almost as much wealth as the bottom 90 percent, and one family owns more wealth than the bottom 42 percent. In terms of income, 99 percent of all new income is going to the top 1 percent.

This is what a rigged economic system looks like. At a time when millions of American workers have seen declines in their incomes and are working longer hours for lower wages, the wealth of the billionaire class is soaring in a way that few can imagine. If you can believe it, between 2013 and 2015, the 14 wealthiest individuals in the country saw their net worth increase by over $157 billion dollars. Children go hungry, veterans sleep out on the streets, senior citizens cannot afford their prescription drugs -- and 14 individuals saw a $157 billion dollar increase in their wealth over a two-year period.

And, by the way, if you think that the Republican Party's refusal to acknowledge that climate change is real, is caused by human activity and is a severe threat to our planet, is not related to how we finance campaigns, you would be sorely mistaken. With the Koch brothers (who make much of their money in the fossil fuel industry) and big energy companies strongly supporting Republican candidates, it should not surprise anyone that my Republican colleagues reject the views of the overwhelming majorit y of scientists who study climate issues.

Agelbert NOTE: I agree with much of what Senator Sanders says. However, I DO NOT agree that the "economy today is much better than it was six years ago  when George W. Bush left office"  (unless you are an oligarch ).

This is NOT about Republicans versus Democrats
, as Bernie wants us to believe.  That's mutt and jeff, bad cop, good cop gaming of the masses in defense of the corrupt satus quo.

What part of "The U.S.A. is a M.I.C. dictatorship with Representative Republic/Democracy lipstick" does Senator Sanders NOT understand?

Some might say he doesn't WANT to understand it because his role is that of a TOKEN to make people believe the lipstick is the reality. As much as I like Senator Sanders, I think that hypothesis has merit.   :(
This poor man cried, and the Lord heard him, and saved him out of all his troubles.. -- Psalm 34:6
