I found myself doing something today that I have never done before. I went on line to: (www.berniesanders.com/phonebank) to call voters in the State of New York and elsewhere to try and encourage them to vote for Bernie Sanders in the April 19th primary. Despite having been told incessantly by the mainstream media from the beginning of the primary season that, "Bernie Sanders is not a serious candidate and he doesn't have a chance of winning," I nonetheless tried to point out to the people I talked with today how it is that somehow Bernie continues to keep racking up victory after victory with his latest on April 9th in Wyoming.
My goal was to do my own small part to conquer the public's artificial media nurtured apathy that has attempted to marginalize Sanders from the beginning of the primary season. I found myself pointing out to the folks I talked with that the millions of dollars the Sanders campaign has raised with an average donation of $37 per person continues to give Hillary Clinton a run for her- seemingly endless supply of corporate- money. Money derived from endless $350,000 speaking engagements and dinners with bankers, Wall Street, and other corporate interests sanctioned by Citizens United in their continuing coup over the reminents of America democracy. Was it really part of our Founding Fathers original intent to include corporations in "We the people"?
