Ready to Lead


Senator Bernie Sanders, Democratic presidential candidate, offers motivation, inspiration, and leadership. He also brings the power of honesty, integrity, and commitment, tempered with knowledge, experience, and judgment. Sen. Sanders has served in the government at all levels, from city mayor of Burlington, Vermont, to congressmember to senator: about 30 years. He is now ready to lead the country as president.

When Bernie was in college, he was a civil rights activist; he has worked for social justice all his life. This is reflected in his voting records, speeches, and writings. In April, Sen. Sanders was invited by the Pope to address the Vatican on the moral economy. Having been in the Legislature for so many years, he has great knowledge of international relations and foreign policy, giving him the wisdom and judgment to keep America safe.

Unlike his opponent, who has taken millions of dollars from corporate and Wall Street special interests where she has given exorbitantly paid speeches as well as held fundraisers for as high as $350,000 dollars a ticket, Bernie Sanders does not have a Super PAC nor take corporate money at all. He accepts small, individual donations averaging $27 so he is free to represent the people and not “big business.” A vote for Bernie Sanders is a vote for greater democracy and a “future to believe in”!
