I’m officially joining the Bernie Sanders “political revolution”

Back in 2013, Vermont Senator Bernie Sanders, when asked if he’d consider making a run for President, said that he might have to, if, during the campaign, “the collapse of the middle class, growing wealth and income inequality, growth in poverty, (and) global warming” were not being discussed in any significant way.
