we cannot defeat a corrupt political system and fix a rigged economy. but i believe we need p above the obstacles in place and lookr to the american horizon. to a nation where every child can not only dream of going to college, but attend one.
where quality healthcare will be a birthright of every citizen. where a good job is not a wish,
where women receive equal pay and a living wage is paid to all. an americapwhere after a
lifetime of labor, there is timep for rest and grandchildren. a nation that defendsrour people and our values, but no longer carriesp so much of that burden alone. i knowrwe can create that america if we listen to our consciencet and our hearts and not to the punditstand the naysayers. r i'm bernie sanders. i approve this message,
