I believe the credit should go to Senator Sanders. He's the one authentic candidate in the race for president. The GOP offerings are ludicrous.. at best. Secretary Clinton would govern more to the right than President Obama - by a country mile, God only knows what Middle East endeavors are waiting to be implemented the minute she's sworn in. Without Sanders in this fight - we're absolutely sunk, because we all know HRC has only moved her positions left from being "forced" by the populist Vermont Senator..and us.
The challenges millennials have in front of them - range from absurd to cruel; they have no choice but to push opposite or face many phases of self destruction. This Bernie phenomenon teaches us, as a people highly significant lessons. First and foremost: We do indeed have the means and power to effect change through small consistent donations. And by doing our research to become informed and staying engaged. Secondly: From their woeful under reporting of Senator Sanders popularity it is certain big media is against representative government, and by extension, the well being of citizens whom live under the guise of democracy. Only by a Sanders victory in conjunction with retaking the house and senate - would we have the capacity to pass legislation to remove the profit motive from election coverage and force networks to provide accurate non editorialized reporting equally to all candidates. It may shock them but, perhaps they'd experience an uptick in viewers, 'should word get out the news agencies were actually taking the lead on doing their jobs.'
Should the Sanders movement put him at residence at 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue - the reclamation of this country only just begins. Senator Sanders is the only candidate clearly, truthfully, pointing out 'we NOT just he', will determine our collective fate. As Senator Bill Bradley so eloquently stated "democracy is not a vicarious experience." Perhaps this has finally sunk in.
