Bernie Sanders: Here's what we want What do we want? We want to end the rapid movement that we are currently experiencing toward oligarchic control of our economic and political life. As Lincoln put it at Gettysburg, we want a government of the people, by the people and for the people. That is what we want, and that is what we will continue fighting for.

Prepared Remarks...The Political Revolution Continues Real change never takes place from the top down, or in the living rooms of wealthy campaign contributors. It always occurs from the bottom on up -- when tens of millions of people say "enough is enough" and become engaged in the fight for justice. That's what the political revolution we helped start is all about. That's why the political revolution must continue.

Poverty In America When I talk about thinking big and outside the box, about rejecting incremental change, I am talking about the millions of Americans who live in poverty who have been tossed out, left behind, and abandoned by the rich and powerful. We need to create an economy that works for all of us, not just the 1 percent.

Prepared Remarks -- National Press Club It's incumbent upon super delegates to take a hard and objective look at which candidate stands the better chance of defeating Trump. And in that regard, I think the evidence is extremely clear that I would be the stronger candidate to defeat Trump or any other Republican. This is not just the subjective opinion of Bernie Sanders. This is based on virtually every national and state poll done in the last several months.

Inequality: The Great Political And Moral Issue Of Our Time Our very soul as a nation has suffered as the public lost faith in political and social institutions. As Pope Francis has stated: "Man is not in charge today, money is in charge, money rules." And the Pope has also stated: "We have created new idols. The worship of the golden calf of old has found a new and heartless image in the cult of money and the dictatorship of an economy which is faceless and lacking any humane goal."

America's Radical Transformation From a GM Economy to a Wal-Mart Economy Throughout my political career I have stood with workers and demanded that corporate America invest in this country. Secretary Clinton's position has been very different. Not only did she support the North American Free Trade Agreement and special trade status with China, she also supported disastrous trade deals with Vietnam, Colombia and Panama. Enough is enough!

Reforming Wall Street-- Breaking Up Big Banks, Making Ratings Agencies Non-Profit The American people are catching on. They understand that there is something profoundly wrong when, in our country today, the top one-tenth of 1 percent owns almost as much wealth as the bottom 90 percent. They understand that something is profoundly wrong when the 20 richest people in our country own more wealth than the bottom half of the American population -- 150 million people.

Rejecting the influence of billionaires on politics The economic and political systems of this country are stacked against ordinary Americans. The rich get richer and use their wealth to buy elections, and I believe that we cannot change this corrupt system by taking its money. If we're serious about creating jobs, health care for all, climate change, and the needs of our children and the elderly, we must be serious about campaign finance reform.

Single-Payer Health Care For All It is a national disgrace that the United States is the only major country that does not guarantee health care to all people as a right. Today, 29 million of our sisters and brothers are without care. Not only are deductibles rising, but the cost of prescription drugs is skyrocketing as well. There is a major crisis in primary health care in the United States.

Unfortunately, an institution that was created to serve all Americans has been hijacked by the very bankers it regulates.

Watch Bernie Sanders Speak on Morality and Justice at Liberty University I spoke at Liberty University because I believe that it is important for those with different views in our country to engage in civil discourse -- not just to shout at each other or make fun of each other. It is very easy for those in politics to talk to those who agree with us -- and I do that every day. It is harder, but not less important, to try and communicate with those who do not agree with us.

There's only one right answer on Keystone XL: NO Stopping the Keystone XL pipeline is not the only thing we must do to address climate change. Ultimately, we need to leave all fossil fuels in the ground and move to a 100 percent renewable energy economy. That's why I also oppose oil drilling in the Arctic, support the fossil fuel divestment movement, and have sponsored legislation in Congress to bring solar energy to ten million rooftops in America.

Why Not? We must send a simple message to the billionaire class: You can't have it all. They will argue, of course. So will the politicians who serve them. They will insist that we can't do better, that we can't have the same basic rights as citizens of other countries. It's time to ask them, and ourselves, a simple but very important question: Why not?

The result has been massive job losses in the United States and the shutting down of tens of thousands of factories.

If we stand together and fight for the interests of ALL Americans, we win.
