I fear that my generation is going to be remembered by history as the forgotten generation. Despite having lived during the Barack Obama and Bill Clinton presidencies, my generation has not breathed a breath of liberal air in our lifetimes. Take for example the list of Democratic people who are seen as *potential* candidates for the nomination in 2016: Hillary Clinton, Joe Biden, Jerry Brown, Elizabeth Warren, Bernie Sanders, John Kerry, and my personal favorite, Al Gore. What do all of these people have in common? They were all born before 1950. They all had lived through great Democratic eras, under FDR, JFK, and LBJ. They came of age in times when change and progress weren't stifled by a conservative congress, a Catholic Supreme Court, or a group of *** with teabags dropping from their hats. The Democratic leaders of tomorrow all are ironically past the retirement age of 65. Each of them were lucky to grow up in a world where hope outweighed fear. And what did my generation get? We got Ro ...
I think we're playing with fire to demand a constitutional convention to vote on things we're having trouble getting through Congress. With the possibility that EVERYTHING could be up for grabs at such a convention, we could find ourselves is quite a pickle -- dominated by big-spending Tea Party types and pushed into altering our constitution beyond all recognition. That scares me more than going along the way we are and struggling to win our government back from big money, frankly. I don't think we have the kind of statesmanly minds enjoying enough influence in public life right now to shepherd a decent constitution through the process. If people respected Bernie Sanders, Elizabeth Warren, and their like more than they do, I wouldn't be so scared. But if we have the likes of Mitch Mcconnell and Darrell Issa, the Koch Brothers and some of the crazies on the Supreme Court influencing changes in our constitution --- Eeeek.
Today's news from Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.): Sanders Packs the House: The Progressive Democrats of America kicked off their 10-year anniversary celebration with a public dialog featuring Sen.

I've just been reading about how the Supreme Court, half of whom are just paid corporate stooges put in place by George Bush, have devastated the last chance to have remotely fair elections in this country. Looking ahead to 2016 there are only three people I'd like to see as President at that time who would have the balls to try turning the country around. Bernie Sanders, U.S. Senator Elizabeth Warren and Edward Snowden. Yup, I'd sooner see Edward Snowden President of the United States, a man who has already proven that he is ready and willing to put his own life at risk for his country, than any of the corporate endorsed arsewipes who are selling the country, in fact the WORLD, out just so a few people can become so rich they can do anything they want without fear of repercussion. We're so far beyond Dems v GOP any more, we shouldn't be arguing any more. Both were once good parties that believed in certain principals, even if the two parties did switch positions time to time through history. Just over a ...
Discussion: On Jan. 21, 2010, Sen. Bernie Sanders predicted that the Supreme Court ruling on Citizen United would “give control of the political process in the United States to the wealthiest and most powerful institutions in the world and the candidates who support their agenda. Instead of democracy being about one-person one-vote, it will now be about the size of a company’s bank account." Was Bernie Sanders's right? With 2014 midterm Election looming, what do you think?
In his new report, America For Sale: A Report on Billionaires Buying the 2012 Election, Sen. Bernie Sanders named names and called out the billionaires who using Citizens United to buy our democracy. In front of a Senate panel today, Sen. Bernie Sanders outed the 26 billionaires who are members of 23 billionaire families that are using Citizens United to buy elections. Sen. Sanders estimated that these 26 billionaires are the tip of the iceberg. “My guess is that number is really much greater because many of these contributions are made in secret. In other words, not content to own our economy, the 1 percent want to own our government as well.” Sanders explained how the Supreme Court’s Citizens United decision put the government up for sale, “What the Supreme Court did in Citizens United is to say to these same billionaires and the corporations they control: ‘You own and control the economy, you own Wall Street, you own the coal companies, you own the oil companies. Now, for a very small percent ...

"Corporations are just people, my friend." -- Mitt Romney, 2011. Sorry Mitt, you are wrong. Corporations are NOT human--they are legal constructs designed to limit liability for wrong-doing. That is why they are called Ltd. in Britain. Corporations have no First Amendment rights as individual citizens do. The U.S. Supreme Court in January 2010 got it dead wrong. The only way to fix this wrong is to pass a Constitutional Amendment spelling out the rights of corporations versus the rights of individual citizens. I like Sen. Bernie Sanders language.

In a week with more political rhetoric than usual, Sen. Bernie Sanders offered facts to counter the fiction in Republican assaults on Social Security, Medicare and Medicaid. At the Republican National Convention, wealt hy donors hobnobbed Wednesday on a yacht flying a flag of the Cayman Islands, the tax haven where Mitt Romney and other wealthy individuals shelter their fortunes to avoid paying U.S. taxes. President Obama weighed in on Wednesday for a Constitutional Amendment to undo Citizens United. In the Senate, Sanders is the sponsor of an amendment to reverse the Supreme Court decision that let business and billionaires bankroll (mostly Republican) campaigns. Meanwhile, several states (with Republican governors) have put new laws on the books to discourage voting by young and old and poor people. A federal court on Thursday struck down one such an anti-democratic law in Texas. A Government Accountability Office investigation, which was requested by Sanders, is looking at similar laws in other states. ...
"I applaud President Obama for expressing support for a serious effort to restore the democratic foundations of our country that are under severe attack as a result of the disastrous Supreme Court ruling in Citizens United," Sen. Bernie Sanders said on Thursday.
Monday, on the 47th anniversary of the federal Voting Rights Act, long-time civil rights advocate and UN ambassador Andrew Young, said the country need a Voting Rights Act 2.0. Young said the promise of the original voting right law ' that it would remove the obstacles preventing all Americans from voting ' has fallen short because of newly enacted state barriers, the impact of money on campaigning and the resulting voter apathy. Vermont's congressional delegation has also raised red flags concerning voting. Last winter Sens. Bernie Sanders, I-Vt., Patrick Leahy, D-Vt., Richard Durbin, D-Ill., and Bill Nelson, D-Fla., asked for a Government Accountability Office investigation into the flurry of voter identification laws passed by state legislatures. As a threshold question, they asked GAO to determine whether there really is a problem with voter fraud. The GAO agreed to do a study. 'On one hand, the Supreme Court has allowed billionaires to buy elections,' Sanders said. 'On the other hand, what we're also ...

Of the Rich, By the Rich, For the RichBy Bernie Sanders, Reader Supported News 26 June 12 The Supreme Court on Monday reaffirmed its disastrous 2010 ruling that lifted limits on corporate spending to influence elections. Justices reversed the Montana Supreme Court and struck down a state law. "The U.S. Supreme Court's absurd 5-4 ruling two years ago in Citizens United was a major blow to American democratic traditions. Sadly, despite all of the evidence that Americans see every day, the court continues to believe that its decision makes sense," Sanders said. "In recent weeks, multi-billionaires such as the Koch Brothers and Sheldon Adelson have made it clear that, as a result of the Citizens United decision, they intend to spend hundreds of millions of dollars to buy this election for candidates who support the super-wealthy. This is not democracy. This is plutocracy. And that is why we must overturn Citizens United if we are serious about maintaining the foundations of American democracy. "I intend to wo ...
Sen. Bernie Sanders issued a blistering criticism of the Supreme Court after they strengthened Citizens United by overturning Montana’s campaign cash ban.
Franklin D. Roosevelt, who stood up to the banksters unlike any of today's leaders excepting Bernie Sanders and Elizabeth Warren, battled daily with the would be plutocrats of his day and beat them back with a constant salvo of verbiage buffered with pro-people legislation. He held them at bay. He knew that given the chance, powerful businessmen would take control of our government. He called it fascism. And that is where we are today. The Supreme Court's decision by its right wing majority in the case of Citizens United has opened the floodgates to a tsunami of corporate contributions without precedent in our dying democracy. America needs a new FDR to stand steadfast with the people or fascism is just around the corner.
