Sen. Bernie Sanders: "My hope is to make Vermont a model for what a progressive grass-roots campaign can be." "Please donate today to support our progressive grass-roots campaign! Let me say a word about the national campaign. In the midst of all of the campaign hoopla, media superficiality, negativity and downright lies, it’s important for progressives not to forget what this election is all about. Today we are confronted with a Republican Party which, in the last few years, has become a right-wing extremist party. This is a party which, as a result of the disastrous Citizens United Supreme Court decision, is significantly financed by a small number of extremely wealthy individuals. Billionaires like the Koch Brothers and Sheldon Adelson have pledged to spend hundreds of millions of dollars to defeat President Obama -- and Senate and House candidates throughout the country who are fighting to protect middle-class and working families. These billionaires own coal companies, oil companies, gambling casi ...

No matter what your party affiliation shouldn't America be a FREE country ELECTING OUR leaders not selling out to the highest bidder to billionaires.

Bernie Sanders appears to be the only independent progressive voice in Congress ... we need Politicians with this viewpoint to move our country forward ... As the longest serving Independent in U.S. congressional history I want to take this opportunity to share with you my views about what I consider to be the most serious crisis we face: the need to defeat the effort of the wealthiest people in our country to convert our American democracy into an oligarchic form of government where virtually all economic and political power rests in the hands of a small number of enormously rich families. The history of this country has been the drive towards a more and more inclusive democracy -- a democracy that would fulfill Abraham Lincoln’s beautiful phraseology at Gettysburg in which he described America as a nation “of the people by the people for the people.” We all know American democracy has not always lived up to this ideal. When this country was founded, only white male property owners over age 21 coul ...
