Who am I to tell Bernie Sanders what he should do?
Just an American citizen like you.
Just an individual participating in government of the people, by the people, for the people.
Just one person reaching out to other like-minded people -- and there are a lot of us! -- who think America is on the wrong track, that we need real leadership who will truly speak for us.
Here is a video of me making the announcement Bernie Sanders needs to make in order to win the presidency and turn this country around. It's what I believe people need to hear. It's a way for Mr. Sanders to rise far above the rest of the mealy-mouthed, cheap-talking Republican and Democratic candidates and win the trust and loyalty of the voting public.
I don't pretend to be as forceful or eloquent as Mr. Sanders, please
cut me some slack here and just use your imaginations a bit.
Notice that the idea is NOT JUST ABOUT BERNIE.
He's only one man. We need to make ALL CANDIDATES ACCOUNTABLE TO US!
I am convinced we need to take the guess work out of campaigning.
I believe we need to replace sound bites and photo ops with firm commitments.
I believe that the days of the honor system -- trusting candidates and taking them at their word -- is over. But I believe that this actually works to the advantage of the "good ones", the ones we probably can trust, like Bernie. Thus . . .
believe Bernie should challenge vague promises and nice-sounding
campaign slogans of his competitors with a daring, LEGALLY-BINDING
CONTRACT WITH THE AMERICAN PEOPLE. Not because we don't trust him. But to show the voting public in very stark and unmistakable terms that Clinton, Trump, and the others are completely full of hot air. They're the ones who can't be trusted.
also believe Bernie needs to renounce some of his prior commitments on
foreign policy and support for military waste. He needs to affirm
himself to be a man of peace, so we don't have four more years of "talk"
about peace, while America just promotes more war. This commitment to
less military aggression, reducing the DOD budget, ending the war crimes
like drone bombing and illegal invasions, and getting the U.S. troops
out of Iraq, Afghanistan, and Syria, should be spelled out in clear
language in the contract.
Whatever the specifics, the basic idea is right there in the video.
