On the other hand, Sander's message is one that inspires and motivates Americans to join the rapidly growing movement to bring positive and constructive change to this government. For each element of his criticisms of failed government policies he puts forth specific recommendations on what he would do differently.

For some time now we have seen these elections being contaminated by massive funding provided by Super Pacs who support candidates who will advance their interests in Washington. All of the Republican candidates as well as Hillary Clinton rely heavily on Super Pac funding; Trump the billionaire funds his own campaign.

Sanders is unique in this election in that he is taking an entirely different approach with regard to campaign funding. He refuses to have anything to do with Super Pacs or corporate money. His campaign is, instead, fueled by many millions of Americans, who have had enough of the political incompetence and corruption in D.C.; who have been waiting and are ready for such a revolution; those who want to restore their right to have a voice in how this government functions and the direction it takes.

What we're seeing is a clear indication that, when properly motivated and energized, the formidable power of the American people can go up against the mighty power brokers that currently control this government and they can prevail. The movement is gathering momentum; if it can be sustained it could prove to be unstoppable.
