The media may be slow to acknowledge it, but Bernie Sanders is offering us the chance of a lifetime to elect a “people’s president.”
It’s only possible, however, if we flood America with proof that Sanders' positions are mainstream. If we focus on issues that matter, the next presidential race could be between the people’s candidate and the Koch brothers' pick.
We know they can’t buy Sanders. The question is, “Can they buy us?”
To the timid who say, “I would vote for Bernie, but . . ." understand that this is not Ralph Nader II, as some naysayers suggest. The game and the playing field have changed dramatically. The Internet has placed more power in the hands of the masses than we’ve ever possessed before, and the stakes for democracy have never been higher.
Never miss a local story.
If we don’t make a stand now, then when?
