FDR, Reagan ...Bernie.

FDR was a loud and proud Democratic Socialist. Every single president after him until Reagan was influenced by him and essentially carried on his legacy.

Reagan was a loud and proud Conservative Republican. Every single president after him (until Sanders?) was influenced by him and essentially carried on his legacy.

Like FDR, Bernie is a loud and proud Democratic Socialist.

We are poised for a major shift back to the polices that saw wages keep pace with productivity. Under the false "trickle down" era (sold by corporates to an unbeknownst populace from 1980 to 2016), productivity has skyrocketed and wages have stagnated.

Bernie Sanders is poised to be one of the three central presidential figures in the 85-year timespan since the election of FDR, with all other presidents as sideline figures in comparison.

As we all know, Bernie is a true liberal.

And unlike perhaps any President in history, Bernie is literally beholden to NO ONE BUT THE ACTUAL PEOPLE OF THIS COUNTRY.

Viva President Sanders!!!!!
