In addition to having an international family, people to pay attention (not pol junkies) know him...

These comments are taken from the actual reader's -

The USA is a country with unrivalled potential, and it is currently a country that works very well for the very rich (who seem to actually own your government, including Hilary Clinton) but it is not a country that works well for the poor (or even many of the middle class). For the 'American Dream' to remain alive, working class people need some sort of basic standard of living as a platform to build on.

With the support we're seeing for Sanders (and even the support for Trump, although I think this is misguided) it is clear that large portions of the American people have had enough with the current state of affairs. For those who don't think a change is needed, I would implore you to have a look at the rights (be they financial, employment-related or social) that other people in other countries around the world benefit from and what a bad deal Americans get by comparison. Then remember that you are the richest country in the world and it is well within your means to have the greatest society in the world also.
