Bernie Sanders is all Riled Up! You Should Be Too!

Here is his pitch

“The truth is, and I think anyone who objectively assesses the situation has to appreciate, that the model the Democrats have followed for the last 10 to 20 years has been an ultimate failure,” Sanders said in an interview with The Huffington Post from his Senate office in Washington.

And Bernie argues that voters who went for Trump did so against their self-interest. Why?

… Part of it, he explains, is that Trump has effectively turned one set of voters (working-class whites) against another (immigrants and refugees) to the point the real culprits (bottom-line-driven CEOs) skate by without reprimand or punishment.

“That’s what demagogues have always done,” he says of Trump. “You pick on the weak and the powerless and you turn a majority against them and you deflect attention from the real causes of the problems that we face.”

Whether you agree with Bernie or not, you have to admit that he has some spunk!

  1. Well, he is right. Correct, that is. Whether or not he was electable or would have governed well, he sees the world with clarity.
