We Are Bernie Sanders
We Are Bernie Sanders
By Justin Akers / justinakersblog.wordpress.com

If Bernie Sanders becomes the next President of the United States, it will be more than an upset. It will be an American Revolution.

Bernie Sanders can’t win the election himself. Only we the people can win the election.

We, the people, by declaring Bernie Sanders our President, will win the greatest victory in the history of American politics, and with our victory we will create a new government of the people, by the people, and for the people. A victory for Bernie Sanders will be a new birth of freedom.

Bernie Sanders will bring our movement with him to The White House. In Washington, the power elite will look out their windows and see us marching. They will see us marching and they will know that we have declared, at last, our independence from the billionaire class.

Bernie Sanders is not a savior. No President can be a savior. The problems that we face can’t be fixed by a single individual. Only we can fix our problems, collectively, with a mass movement that brings about fundamental, systematic changes in American society.

We Americans have revolution in our blood. No matter what they tell you, remember that we are not complacent by nature, we are not helpless by nature, we are not passive victims waiting for our next President to be anointed by the power elite.

No, we will choose our fate. We will march in the streets. We will go out and vote in record numbers. We will take this country back from those who stole it from us.

We don’t need a miracle. We don’t need an upset. We need a revolution. Our votes will be the revolution. We are Bernie Sanders.

When Bernie wins in 2016, the billionaire class will be confronted by a teeming mass of people who are yearning to breathe free, with revolution in their blood.

One day, whether we are rich or poor, we will all have access to health care.

One day, rich or poor, we will all be able to go to college without becoming buried in debt for the rest of our lives.

One day, we will invest trillions of dollars to improve our country’s infrastructure and create millions of jobs instead of throwing away trillions of dollars and thousands of lives on needless wars.

One day, we will have the courage to face climate change and make a sincere effort to save our planet before it’s too late.

One day, we will all be able to exercise our right to marry.

One day, it will be self-evident to all that black lives matter.

One day, we will revitalize poverty-stricken neighborhoods long ago abandoned by capital.

One day, we will de-militarize the police.

One day, we will tear down the walls of the prison state and build a new nation of liberty and equality, where rich and poor alike will be free to pursue happiness.

But only a revolution will make our dream a reality. We are at a point in the course of American events when revolution becomes necessary. We must sever the destructive bond that chains the American political system to the billionaire class.

We believe in this country’s potential to radically transform itself. We will unite to overthrow the financial tyranny that oppresses us. We will not tolerate this sickening inequality any longer. We will win the election in 2016, and We Will Occupy The White House.

We declare that the American citizens, not the billionaire class, will henceforth be in charge of determining America’s future. We declare that a victory for Bernie Sanders is a victory for all the American people. We declare our commitment to the revolutionary, democratic spirit that beats in the the heart of all Americans, no matter their race or creed.

We declare that we will be free at last from the billionaire class’s grip on our nation’s future.

We will be free at last.
