What is Bernie Sanders number one issue.

Not a full member so I can't post a poll apparently. And I'd rather hear peoples own opinions rather than funneling them into a few choices.

I'll start.

I see Bernie standing for economic justice first and foremost. Breaking up the banks, reining in Wall Street, the $15 minimum wage, single pater, and free college are all rooted in economic justice.

The first two are obvious imho, the third is not only about justice but also about economic success as a stronger working class makes for a stronger economy for everyone.

Single payer and free college are also obviously about economic justice. We don't want people dying because they can't afford a platinum health care plan and we don't want people to fore go an education because their parents don't belong to a country club.

So what's your position? What would you say is Sanders number one issue?

2. Yep

 

And the way to that is via a political revolution

The political revolution is one that has everyone voting and everyone participating in grassroots democracy.

4. Or counter revolution

Overturning Citizens United and ending corporate personhood is counter revolutionary. We've had a silent revolution in America in which wealth and power has taken control. Ending that revolution will do a lot toward bringing America back on track.

8. + 2008

No Justice. No Democracy.

Why I voted for Obama.

Still waiting for it, along with Don Siegelman.

6. Welcome to DU!

 

I'd say he's got 2-3 big issues (that are related).

A rigged economy that's destroying our society.

Corruption in politics.

The lack of real action on climate change.

Basically though, that boils down to him aiming at the shadow government.
