The New York Times bestseller!
When Bernie Sanders began his race for the presidency, it was considered by the political establishment and the media to be a “fringe” campaign, something not to be taken seriously. After all, he was just an Independent senator from a small state with little name recognition. His campaign had no money, no political organization, and it was taking on the entire Democratic Party establishment.
By the time Sanders’s campaign came to a close, however, it was clear that the pundits had gotten it wrong. Bernie had run one of the most consequential campaigns in the modern history of the country. He had received more than 13 million votes in primaries and caucuses throughout the country, won twenty-two states, and more than 1.4 million people had attended his public meetings. Most important, he showed that the American people were prepared to take on the greed and irresponsibility of corporate America and the 1 percent.
In Our Revolution, Sanders shares his personal experiences from the campaign trail, recounting the details of his historic primary fight and the people who made it possible. And for the millions looking to continue the political revolution, he outlines a progressive economic, environmental, racial, and social justice agenda that will create jobs, raise wages, protect the environment, and provide health care for all—and ultimately transform our country and our world for the better. For him, the political revolution has just started. The campaign may be over, but the struggle goes on.
I enjoyed the book - and I appreciate the man. I do not admire the man, in fact I believe the reader will find hope and encouragement only through the lense of gulability. I encourage the readers of this book to read the Federalist Papers and the Anti-Federalist response…Sanders understands both views and used the emotion generated long ago into a ‘new revoolution’ (it is amusing).
This isn’t radical stuff when the rest of the industrialized world does it!
Bernie is often looked at as radical but if you dig a bit deeper than the surface you realize that in other countries like France or Canada he’s really a moderate. The political system in the US has shifted too far to the right and it’s time to bring it back a bit left to restore the center.
A must read to turn this country around. I did not think of B Sanders as a serious candidate during the election because of his progressive views. After reading this book, I now realize that I was wrong. Even though we lost the election and Trump is in office doing who knows what this is a real blue print for change. I can't help but think that Trump has read this book and taken what B. Sanders has argued about and turned it into his mishmash of garbage because he is not smart enough to come with this stuff on his own. Read the book and search deeper. Let's get to work, B. Sanders is the real deal and this is where we can make change, thank God.
