The Next President of the United States! [View all]



Bernie is in this to WIN. He is not in it to 'drag other candidates to the Left'.

History shows that when we need someone to come along just when it looks like all is lost, currently the fact that Corporate Money is buying our elections, our politicians, writing our laws, running our media, controlling the 'message', destroying the middle class, oppressing minorities, denying the people the right to participate in their democracy, someone comes along just when they are needed.

FDR was one such person.



Social Security, Medicare, Medicaid, Public School Education, Job Creation, are still among the most popular programs and policies in this country today, across the political divide.





Sen. Bernie Sanders imo, is the right person at the right time to carry on FDR's legacy. And he can and will be the next President of the United States



Job Creation!



Education!



Health Care



Women's Rights



It takes courage to stand up against the Powerful Corporations that control so much and own so much of this country.

I'm just grateful that Bernie Sanders has done so.




Bernie has answered those questions.

He can win this election.

All we have to do is vote for him.

Bernie's in. Are you in for Bernie?
