Bernie Sanders and the American Flag

I have always admired the American flag.

And now, with Bernie Sanders running, I feel the flag is even more strongly representing the ideals of opportunity for all, freedom for all, and peace on earth.

The flag has been used as a symbol of a war machine, most recently the middle east wars over the last quarter century.

For the good of all (except the .01% corporate militarists), Bernie turns that on its head.

To take it even further, in a real sense, Bernie's approach is a refresh from all the wars that have taken place in our history. His entire outlook and campaign seems to be rooted in Eisenhower's warning about the military industrial complex. I loved Wellstone, and I love Bernie.
