Desperate Conservatives Break Out The Nazi References In An Attempt To Stop Bernie Sanders http://www.politicususa.com/2015/07/21/desperate-conservatives-break-nazi-references-attempt-stop-bernie-sanders.html
Why Radicals Like Bernie Sanders Should Run As Democrats, Not Independents
The Left should take a page from the Tea Party’s playbook and take power from within the Democratic Party.
Senator Bernie Sanders, the socialist from Vermont, is running for president. Even more ambitiously, he told ABC’s George Stephanopoulos that he wants to lead “a political revolution in this country.” And he’s doing it as a Democrat. (CONTINUED:)
Bernie Sanders: The Independent Candidate the Democratic Party Desperately Needs
Bernie Sanders (I-VT) has never been a registered Democrat, but he is exactly what the party needs to save itself. A race against Hillary Clinton in the 2016 primaries would be a tough one, but if anyone can shine a light on her pro-Wall Street, pro-wealthy, pro-big business tendencies, it’s Sanders. (CONTINUED:)

In preparation for the 2016 presidential election, Democrats appear united around one candidate, while the Republican contest remains far from secured. Many on the left, who view Hillary Clinton’s stances as a tame brand of liberalism, have attempted to draft Sen. Elizabeth Warren, D-Mass., to run. But the progressives do not need a charismatic leader. Instead, they need to invest in unleashing the disgruntled progressive majority. A longer-term strategy for progressives should be to strengthen unions and boost turnout among politically marginalized populations.
6 Ways Bernie Sanders Will Challenge Hillary Clinton
Sanders has said he intends to challenge the wealthy who have gained power in the country. “Are we prepared to take on the enormous economic and political power of the billionaire class, or do we continue to slide into economic and political oligarchy?” he said on his website.
Though he isn’t likely to win the party’s nomination — he currently trails Clinton by 55.1 percentage points in polls — his presence in the campaign field will shift the debate left on a number of issues, from the economy to the environment. Here are a few ways Sanders could shape Clinton’s campaign:
Bernie Sanders: Cutting Taxes for the Rich While Slashing Social Programs Is Insane
Vermont's Senator Bernie Sanders, author of the new book, The Speech, appeared on The Daily Show last night to explain why he delivered an eight and a half hour "filibuster" on the Senate floor last year. "We have a middle class, which in many cases is collapsing," says Sanders, and the 400 wealthiest individuals in the country own more wealth than the bottom 150 million. "It's insane to think the only way to move toward a balanced budget is by slashing college Pell grants" and making devastating cuts to Medicare, Medicaid and other programs. "And at the same time," Sanders concludes, "our Republican friends say, we're going to do all these terrible things to the most vulnerable Americans, but you know what? We're not going to ask billionaires to pay a nickel more in taxes."
Can Bernie Sanders Break Through the Status Quo?
He may have already done it, with his unapologetic defense of social democracy and assaults on the “billionaire class.”
Bernie Sanders is running a very different campaign for the presidency than Americans have come to expect from Democratic contenders. The first sign of that came when Sanders appeared on ABC’s This Week the Sunday after he announced his candidacy. The Vermont senator had just explained his democratic socialism by reminding host George Stephanopoulos that in the social-democratic countries of Scandinavia, “by and large, government works for ordinary people in the middle class rather than, as is the case right now in our country, for the billionaire class.”
“I can hear the Republican attack ad right now,” Stephanopoulos interrupted: “‘He wants America to look more like Scandinavia.’ ”
“That’s right,” Sanders replied without blinking. “What’s wrong with that? What’s wrong when [they] have more income and wealth equality? What’s wrong when they have a stronger middle class, in many ways, than we do; a higher minimum wage than we do; and they’re stronger on the environment than we [are]? Look, the fact of the matter is that we do a lot in our country, which is good, but we can learn from other countries. We have, George, the highest rate of childhood poverty of any major country on earth at the same time as we’re seeing a proliferation of millionaires and billionaires. Frankly, I don’t think that’s sustainable. I don’t think that’s what America is about.”
Bernie Sanders Turns The Tables On The Republican Plan To Cut Financial Aid For Students
In contrast to the Republican plan to cut financial aid and make college more expensive for students, Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT) is set to propose legislation that would give students free tuition at four-year public colleges and universities.
The Republican budget would end mandatory funding for Pell grants, the end of the in-school subsidy on Stafford loans, and the budget would also end income-based student loan repayment programs.
Sen. Sanders is going in the opposite direction.
In a statement, Sen. Sanders said:
Bernie Sanders’ Koch Killing Movement Grows To $4 Million Raised and 100,000 Contributors
