Bernie Sanders has recently announced his candidacy for president and I can honestly say from what I have heard of him, he gives me a glimmer of hope in what has been a depressing time for american politics.
He hit the nail on the head when he says that no president can be successful without the backing of millions of people who are actively engaged in the political process. The people in power simply have too much money and influence that the only thing that can have an impact on them is when millions of people unite and demand real change and this seems to be what Sanders is asking for.
He also demands that we take a serious look at how money and politics mix. There is simply too much money involved in the political process and the billionaires are the ones who are calling the shots.
So far Bernie has my vote. Does he have yours? Let us know in the comments below.
