This July 4th weekend Bernie Sanders released a statement which said something that many Americans have been thinking and wishing for years.
Today, while the very rich become richer, the poor become poorer and the middle class disappears, the top 1% owns more wealth than the bottom 90%, and 95% of all new income goes to the top 1%
Today, while it is projected that 60% of the electorate will not vote in the next national election because they don’t see much to vote for, the top 1% will be spending hundreds of millions to elect candidates to make them even richer.
Now is the time to alter our government. Now is the time to stop the movement toward oligarchy. Now is the time to create a government which represents all Americans, and not just the 1%.
Bernie Sanders (I-VT) has been considering a run for the White House in 2016, and is a shoe-in for the progressive vote. He has consistently represented the voice of the working class, calling out the oligarchy and ruling class without reservation. The looming question seems to be how much he will appeal to the rest of the nation.
Politics has become so fractured that hearing a voice like Sanders breaking through the rhetoric is refreshing.
