SANDERS = POLITICAL REVOLUTION = TRANSFORM AMERICA = MAKE AMERICA A PLACE FOR ALL AMERICANS NOT JUST THE SUPER-RICH = CALLS ON DISENGAGED YOUNG PEOPLE (30 and YOUNGER) TO BELIEVE IN NEW AMERICA + VOTE IN 2016 and BEYOND
“What this campaign is about is not just electing a president, it is transforming America. To do that we need millions of people–people who have given up on the political process, people who are demoralized, people who don’t believe that government listens to them. We need to bring those people together to stand up loudly and clearly and to say ‘Enough is enough.’ This country belongs to all of us, not just wealthy campaign donors.”
— Bernie Sanders
The “immediate and complete emancipation of all slaves…I am aware that many object to the severity of my language; but is there not cause for severity?…I will be as harsh as truth, and as uncompromising as justice. On this subject, I do not wish to think, or to speak, or write, with moderation. No! No! Tell a man whose house is on fire to give a moderate alarm; tell him to moderately rescue his wife from the hands of the ravisher; tell the mother to gradually extricate her babe from the fire into which it has fallen; but urge me not to use moderation in a cause like the present. I am in earnest—I will not equivocate—I will not excuse—I will not retreat a single inch—AND I WILL BE HEARD.”
— William Lloyd Garrison — Crusade of abolitionist 1831
Sanders = Like Garrison will FIGHT and wage an edgier, more aggressive campaign that will not equivocate
Sanders = Will do Some compare-and-contrast campaigning with Clinton, the constant liar.
SANDERS = “I pledge to you that every day I will fight for the public interest not the corporate interests…I will not abandon any segment of American society–whether you’re gay or black or Latino, poor or working class–just because it is politically expedient at a given time.”
Sanders speech = Critique of contemporary politics that spoke to the frustration among especially young people frustrated with EVERYTHING FOR Wall Street rather than Main Street.
Clinton = FLIP-FLOPPING LIES and she PRETENDS to follow Sander’s Agenda = PRETENDING TO BE FOR THE 98% BUT REALL Y FOR THE O.O1%.
