A Sanders/Gabbard Ticket: The Best Available Combination This is an argument for a Sanders/Gabbard ticket. The 2 are philosophically in synch like no 2 other democratic contenders, such that they could be vastly more effective together than apart over time. Gabbard would continue their work after Sanders has had to bow out due to age.

Alan Simpson, Social Security, and the Welfare Barons of the Livestock Industry Spotlights taxpayer subsidizing of a minority of Western ranchers who graze their livestock on millions of acres of public land at a fraction or market.

It's The Two-Party System Stupid! The Two-Party System has succeeded in keeping alternative political viewpoints away from public consideration. Populist Sanders has an opportunity to run as an independent or under an "alternate" party banner and lessen the stranglehold the two major parties enjoy.
