We need to make a choice this election season. Do we want the rich to continue to rule this nation for their own purposes? Or do we want to call the shots and take back our government? Do we want the government to continue redistributing our income to the rich via international income redistribution agreements, falsely marketed as international trade agreements, such as the Trans Pacific Partnership? Hillary has been for it 45 times, and against it twice. The rich now steal 37 percent of all the income produced in the USA. They seemed pretty well off back in 1980 when they only stole 8 percent of all income. How much do they need in order to pay the bills?

Do we want a government of Wall Street, by Wall Street, or for Wall Street? Hillary has received over $2 million from Wall Street investment corporations since leaving office less than two years ago. That exceeds Bernie Sanders net worth by a factor of over five. Do we want to continue exporting jobs overseas, like Wall Street Senator Ron Wyden enjoys doing? And like Hillary and Bill Clinton has voted to do. Do we want more and more citizens of the 99 percent to work four and five jobs in order to make ends kind of sort of meet, like the woman in the video above?

There really is only one answer for Democrats if you don’t like redistributing middle class income to the rich, if you don’t like it when the USA signs agreements to ship jobs overseas, and you think the crimes of Wall Street executives and their underlings should be brought to justice, and that one person is Bernie Sanders.

Okay, fine, vote for Hillary because she’s a woman, but there isn’t going to be hope and change with her if she’s elected.

US Middle Class Senator Bernie Sanders unleashed his first presidential campaign advertisement on Sunday. It’s playing in Iowa and New Hampshire.

As is common for campaigns, this first ad is thoroughly positive, introducing voters who may not be familiar with Sanders to his biography and background. It begins by calling Sanders “the son of a Polish immigrant who grew up in a Brooklyn tenement,” and displays some shots of him as a child and teenager.

The advertisement plays up Sanders constant battle in the US senate against the war waged by the 1 percent against the middle class. The ad also points out that Sanders voted against the Iraq war, which anybody who wasn’t dumb, corrupt, or naive would have done. The ad doesn’t mention that Sanders main democratic opponent (and darling of Wall Street), Hillary Rodham Clinton, voted for the war without reservation.

Republican presidential candidates turned on Mitt Romney in a nationally televised debate on Sunday in a desperate attempt to cut into his huge poll ahead of Tuesday’s New Hampshire primary.

The GOP debate in Concord, New Hampshire, and another held just 10 hours earlier in Manchester, was marked by personal, abusive and frequently petty exchanges that highlighted the fractured nature of the modern Republican party, and raised President Barack Obama’s hopes for re-election in November.
