It ain’t over, not by a long shot. Sure Bernie Sanders has lost the Democratic primary, but Bernie Sanders run for the US presidency was never about Bernie Sanders. It was about creating a massive social movement. Mission accomplished.
Bernie’s run for the presidency was about organizing a grassroots movement to take the US government away the uber rich who control it, and who use that clout to redistribute trillions of dollars of income from the 99 to the 1 percent.
The 1 percent have stolen 99 percent of all income growth since 2009. That means they’re stealing 37 percent of all income produced in the United States on a yearly basis, up from 8 percent in 1980.
“Real change never takes place from the top,” Bernie says in the video above, “it never takes place in the living rooms of the rich. It always comes from the bottom up.”
Bernie also said we need to go to the Democratic Convention to change the Democratic platform into the most progressive platform of all time. Among other things, Bernie said we need to increase Social Security payments, not decrease them.
We have a movement. Now don’t let go. Our time is approaching with this massive great depression fast approaching. This is just the beginning, not the end.
