Senator Bernie Sanders (I) Vermont is in my view one of the most admired politician icons that has surfaced in the minds and hearts of the Daily Kos community since the last presidential elections. Comments written on him confirm my belief.
I too have noticed this Independent political lion who leans to the left opposing the right wing Republicans and their agenda against the poor, against women`s right to a fair-pay wage and reproduction needs and his lion`s roar goes on and on and on. Here in this video I note what I have suspected about `all` politicians for some time, including about Bernie Sander`s political ambitions.
I admire Bernie Sanders, I do. He speaks volumes of what is wrong not only in today`s politics but is right-on when assailing the Republican`s racist ideology and war on the poor, their hell-bent economic or political theory and policy obstructionism, including their assault on Social Security, Medicare, Food Stamps just to name a few.
It is what I`ve said, here and to anyone who listens. He is just another politician in the long line I have mentioned - that wants to be president. For his sake, and mine I hope he succeeds.
And who would argue against his wish to occupy the oval office. No one I guess, except of course the Republicans. I know I wouldn`t. I was just waiting for him to cop out to his desire to be the top honcho. He has what it takes. I have spied on him, in my own wild imagination.
Ed Shultz on his MSNBC show pried from Senator Sanders mouth what I have always suspected. The Senator told Ed Shultz that what was needed was a candidate who would stand up for the American people against the Republicans, wealthy and corporations. Sanders said he is prepared to run for President of the United States.
“One out of four corporations pay zero in taxes,” he continued, “they want to give even more tax breaks for large corporations. Meanwhile the people who are hurting, the middle class, the working class, low income people, what the Republican proposal in the Ryan budget is about and what all of these guys believe, is massive cuts to Medicare, transforming it from the program it is today, Medicaid, Pell Grants and education horrendous cuts to Food Stamps.”Duh, I thought.
While I would actually vote for this man as President, I carry my own personal views on what type of politician and ideological mind set he uses to woo the average Democrat leaning voters. He roars his loudest blast about the Republicans agenda this way:
“So their definition of freedom is is that if you are 70 years of age and you are poor and you have no health insurance, you’re going to have the freedom literally to die,” he concluded.OUCH! Come on Bernie, cut the fear mongering and getting me scared. I mean really bat-shit scared..But I give it to you Bernie. Good call.
I`m sure you will wince when I tell you about my comparison of how I view Bernie Sanders to another well known former political speaker of our time and how he strolls up to the podiums to speak his mind to talk about the ills of the country of what is wrong and what must be done.
Here it is: (Note: wild imagination).
I think of a Ronald Reagan type of speaker -- but in reverse.
Senator Bernie Sanders is a great speaker, a great orator who masters the ability to capture the attention of the average listener, including this community who mostly agree with him. He speaks of what the policies initiated by the former Ronald Reagan`s administration has done to create the chaos and inequalities without bashing Reagan by name. To me personally I see as I hear Bernie Sanders speak in my wildest dreams, the evil face that created the ills in this country we now fight to cure.
If you listen closely to Senator Bernie Sanders in this video, listen and tell me if what he speaks of, the damage that Republicans continue to inflict on this country and to the poor, just tell me those words are not meant to repel the very nightmare created when Ronald Wilson Reagan who became the 40th President of the United States (1981–1989).
For whatever reasons, I have yet to see or hear any other of those `good Democrats`
we vote for roar like this independent lion. Perhaps because he owes no political party any favors, he speaks truisms without fear of back lashes from other good Democrats.
If you have ever seen a video more compelling than this one on Bernie Sanders I have not. Not to imply that I watch for or care what most politicians preach, my view today on politician`s political ambitions is all good in favor of Senator Sanders My wild imagination seeing Senator Sanders as a Ronald Reagan in reverse becomes more vivid.
Everything he touches with words, are the very things Roland Reagan and his existing Republican Junta demolished. Bernie Sanders appears to want to walk those burned bridges in reverse - without getting burned. And what better way than doing it from the oval office podium.
And I agree.
Run Bernie, Run.
