Bernie Sanders: “I Am Prepared To Run for President of the United States”


Truthout has the article from The Nation Bernie Sanders: “I Am Prepared To Run for President of the United States”.

In some senses, Sanders is the unlikeliest of prospects: an independent who caucuses with the Democrats in the Senate but has never joined the party, a democratic socialist in a country where many politicians fear the label “liberal,” an outspoken critic of the economic, environmental and social status quo who rips “the ruling class” and calls out the Koch brothers by name. Yet, he has served as the mayor of his state’s largest city, beaten a Republican incumbent for the US House, won and held a historically Republican Senate seat and served longer as an independent member of Congress than anyone else. And he says his political instincts tell him America is ready for a “political revolution.”

And they laughed when I said that Bernie Sanders could be the President to rein in the NSA. Reining in the NSA is probably the least significant positive change that a Sanders/Warren or Warren/Sanders administration would accomplish.
