A presidential campaign should be
          about the issues. Bernie's been right on the issues early and
          often.1962: As the Civil Rights Movement
          grew, Bernie led a sit-in to desegregate off-campus student
          housing at the University of Chicago1983: In the midst of public
          vitriol against gay rights, Bernie endorsed the first Gay
          Pride Day in Burlington, Vermont, calling it a civil rights
          issue1991: In his first term in
          Congress, Bernie voted to oppose the federal death penalty,
          and has opposed the death penalty his whole career1993: President Clinton promised
          hundreds of thousands of new jobs from NAFTA, but Bernie voted
          to protect American jobs by opposing the trade agreement.1996: Bernie voted against the
          anti-gay Defense of Marriage Act in order to stand up for
          legal rights of LGBT Americans.1999: While Congress rushed to
          deregulate Wall Street, promising new wealth for the country,
          Bernie opposed the effort, correctly predicting that it would
          lead to further concentration of power in our country2001: Bernie opposed the Patriot
          Act in spite of an overwhelming majority in favor of passing
          the bill that reduced civil liberties.2003: While President Bush and
          Congress rushed the country to war with Iraq, Bernie Sanders
          opposed the war, saying it would result in anti-Americanism,
          instability, and more terrorismAnd Bernie has always stood up for
          working families against the interests of the wealthy. We need
          a president who is right on the issues, not just now, but
          throughout their career.We want to know which issues you
