Bernie Sanders- Full Speech in Minneapolis - HQ Video

More than 3,700 people squeezed into a Minneapolis gym to hear presidential candidate Senator Bernie Sanders lay out his campaign agenda. More people were left standing outside. Upon arrival, Sanders said he would like to ask people in the gym to sit down, but there were no more chairs.

Sanders said his campaign had scheduled the Minnesota stop as almost an afterthought - it was on the way to Iowa. But the event which was scheduled to be a gathering for two hundred at a union headquarters quickly drew thousands of RSVPs and was moved to the larger gym at the Minneapolis American Indian Center.

People are calling for "a political revolution in this country," said Sanders. He said it will take more than him to fight back against the powerful "billionaire class" that runs Washington, D.C. politics and uses its money to get middle class people to vote against their own best interests.

Sanders says the economy is "rigged" to benefit the most wealthy and that has to change so it works for everyone and not just a privileged few.

?Enough is enough, we want that wealth to come back to the working families."

Sanders called for a federal government jobs program to rebuild the country's decaying infrastructure. He also wants a higher minimum wage, pay equity for women, guaranteed sick leave and vacation, and free tuition at every college and university in the United States.

Sanders said people need to realize that we are the richest most powerful nation in the world and can afford to do what's right for its people.

He then turned to the environment, stating unequivocally that science has shown climate change is real, man made, and has devastating consequences. He faulted the Koch brothers and other corporations that fund climate change deniers. "?We are not going to allow them to destroy this planet for their short term profits.

Huge Bernie Sanders Crowds Surprise Everybody -- Hillary Worried?

Published on Jun 1, 2015
"A mere 240 people live in the rural northeast Iowa town of Kensett, so when more than 300 crowded into the community center on Saturday night to hear Senator Bernie Sanders of Vermont, many driving 50 miles, the cellphones of Democratic leaders statewide began to buzz.

Kurt Meyer, the county party chairman who organized the event, sent a text message to Troy Price, the Iowa political director for Hillary Rodham Clinton. Mr. Price called back immediately.

“Objects in your rearview mirror are closer than they appear,” Mr. Meyer said he had told Mr. Price about Mr. Sanders. “Mrs. Clinton had better get out here.”

The first evidence that Mrs. Clinton could face a credible challenge in the Iowa presidential caucuses appeared late last week in the form of overflow crowds at Mr. Sanders’s first swing through that state since declaring his candidacy for the Democratic nomination."

Rachel Maddow - Bernie Sanders proposes more, and bipartisan, primary debates

Rachel Maddow describes the trouble Republican candidates will have making their voices heard in such a crowded field and describes a proposal by Democratic presidential candidate Bernie Sanders to hold more debates between parties in more locations.


The first time Clinton ran for POTUS, the one difference between her and Obama that stood out to me was he talked to me while she talked at me. Now she's not talking but Sanders is talking to me and for me!!!

+Vote Bernie Sanders 2016 If you didn't see the speech Sanders gave announcing his candidacy look for it on YT, it's a MUST SEE!!
Bernie Sanders is changing the face of US politics for the better, if you haven't already, begin to educate yourself because he does not receive the amount of media time that he deserves and the majority of the time he is not taken very seriously. Listen to what he has to say, you will not regret it.

+Nick Wright I was a punk of the 80s/90s, as apathetic on politics as it gets... and have found myself watching HOURS of Bernie's speeches, when I got the chance! Time very well spent!

+Glenn Jerome Everette Well, I'm sticking with the Bernie camp for now. I honestly think this country is so fickle and can't stand prosperity. Nothing happens fast enough or is ever good enough for us no matter how "good" things have been. I say that to say that I think we will elect a Republican POTUS. Sucks, but that's just the American way. After 2000 anything can happen. I would have bet my life savings that Al Gore was a shoe in. I still go back to watch those debates at times just to reaffirm how stupid America has become.
Bernie Sanders' letter to DNC Chair requesting more debates emphasized this most important point: ".... I believe we need to go beyond the bounds of traditional party debates. I am extremely concerned by the fact  that many working class Americans are voting against their best economic interests by supporting rightwing Republicans whose agenda represents the interests of the billionaire class, and not the needs of working Americans. Why are millions of struggling Americans voting for Republican candidates who want to cut Social Security, Medicare, Medicaid and education while giving huge tax breaks to the very richest people in this country?"  Bernie is mesmerizing. We the People have a voice with Bernie Sanders!
