Our Revolution: A Future to Believe In by Bernie Sanders

At last! A serious analysis moving toward the real truth, as we have known all along! This DNC elite is so brazen and now apparently oblivious, and I am not just writing here about missing the "economic pain of an increasingly large segment of the nation."

Sanders has started to nail it quite clearly. I wish he would go into far more specific details and speak more specifically about the blatant purging and cheating that went on in 12 states, and how to vigilantly prevent this in the midterms and in 2020. This was certainly equal as a factor in the lost to the DNC outright blindsiding the Democrat voters. Most prosecutors clearly recognize the syndrome wherein the victim stops complaining what happened to them!


Bernie Sanders speaks at Dominican University in San Rafael

By Richard Halstead, Marin Independent Journal

Here's a summary:

Bernie Sanders told a San Rafael crowd of about 850 that they shouldn't blame many of Trump's voters for his presidential victory. Instead, they should blame the elite leadership of the Democratic Party, which for years did too little to address the economic pain of an increasingly large segment of the nation.

"I look at this election not as a victory for Mr. Trump, who wins the election as the most unpopular candidate in perhaps the history of our country," Sanders said. "But as a loss for the Democratic Party."

Concentrating on economic inequality. Sanders said. "I think a lot of people ended up holding their noses and voting for Trump because they are in pain," noting that millions of Americans still lack health insurance and that many people with insurance have high deductibles that discourage them from seeing a doctor and can't afford the medicine they're prescribed if they do consult a physician.

Sanders said that half of people age 55 have no money saved for retirement, that on average men in West Virginia's affluent Fairfax County live 18 years longer than men in the state's economically disadvantaged McDowell County, and that tens of thousands of people living in Baltimore, Maryland, are addicted to heroin.
