Bernie Sanders is campaigning for president again, officially entering the crowded 2020 Democratic presidential field on Tuesday with a vow to finish what he started in his last race for the White House.
When I was in school back in the 1970’s, they taught us about Socialism in history class. It was presented to us as an inherent form of evil tyranny, akin to it’s older brother of Communism, and something that was to be avoided at all costs. Socialism, we were told, was a precursor to the collapse of a formerly free nation as it slid down into despotism. In 2019, things have radically changed for the worse.
America was founded on freedom and capitalism, while Socialism and Communism are the sworn enemy of both those ideals. America in 2019 is flirting with making a switch to Socialism as we have seen with the red rise of people like Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez. Even if the nearly 80 year old Sanders doesn’t get very far, the Left is stacking their deck with hardcore Democratic Socialists. Which do you prefer, the frying pan or the fire?
Bernie Sanders enters 2020 presidential race: ‘Complete the revolution’
FROM NBC NEWS: “Together, you and I and our 2016 campaign began the political revolution. Now, it is time to complete that revolution and implement the vision that we fought for,” Sanders said in an email to supporters and a video announcing his candidacy.
The 77-year-old independent senator from Vermont, who started his political career as a gadfly perennial candidate, remains a pacesetter of progressive politics in America, helping to craft a liberal agenda that includes everything from Medicare for All to a $15 minimum wage to free college tuition.
HE BROKE THE NEWS CONFIRMING ANOTHER PRESIDENTIAL BID EARLY TUESDAY ON VERMONT PUBLIC RADIO, SAYING IN AN INTERVIEW THAT HE PROMISES TO “TAKE THE VALUES THAT ALL OF US IN VERMONT ARE PROUD OF — A BELIEF IN JUSTICE, IN COMMUNITY, IN GRASSROOTS POLITICS, IN TOWN MEETINGS — THAT’S WHAT I’M GOING TO CARRY ALL OVER THIS COUNTRY.”
Early polls show him far ahead of the rest of the pack and trailing only former Vice President Joe Biden in the nascent 2020 field.
“Three years ago, during our 2016 campaign, when we brought forth our progressive agenda we were told that our ideas were ‘radical,’ and ‘extreme,’” Sanders said in the email. “These policies and more are now supported by a majority of Americans.” READ MORE
