Bernie's Got Your Back

Bernie Sanders

Bernie Sanders for President 2016!

Why?

Bernie's got your back.  He is more concerned with you than with lobbyists.  He listens to The People instead of Big Money.

I love him so much.  He really tells it like it is.  Like he does in the Burlington Free Press:

"There are people in this world who, ever since they were 12 years of age, they decided they wanted to be president of the United States,” Sanders said.

“That is honestly not me,” he continued. “Anyone who really, really wants to be president is slightly crazy because this is an unbelievably difficult job given the crises that this country faces today.”

Wouldn't it be great to have a president who agrees with The People that the leader of the free world is slightly crazy?



It's not an academic question of walking into a room and saying "Gee, I think we should discuss this issue."  It's a question of reflecting what the American people want.  

Every poll that I have seen says overwhelmingly the American people do not want to cut Social Security, Medicare, and Medicaid.  They want the wealthy and large corporations to pay more in taxes.  In Washington, what people are saying "let's cut Social Security, Medicare, and Medicaid.  Let's give the rich and large corporations more tax breaks."

They're completely different sets of reality.  The American people want something.  Congress and the big money interests want something else.  So, I want to rally the American people to stand up and fight for their needs, and the needs of the middle class people, rather than just allowing the wealthy to have so much influence.

Wouldn't it be great to have a real president who understands real people's needs?
