Now, here we are, and we’re sitting down with Bernie Sanders and we’re sitting down with the revolutionary turn – things have evidenced it is campaigning and giving opportunity for young people, and for all people, to have a choice, to be able to turn this Ship of State, called America, around and place it on a new course.
That’s why I’ve endorsed Bernie Sanders. I think he represents opportunity, I think he represents a moral imperative, I think he represents a certain kind of truth that’s not often evidenced in the course of politics. I would suggest that to those of you who have not yet made up your mind, or maybe even some of you who have made up your minds to maybe consider and reconsider what it is that Bernie Sanders offers.
He offers a chance to declare, unequivocally, that there is an America, that there is a group of citizens who gave a deep caring for where our nation goes and what it does in the process of going.
