Senator Bernie Sanders Speaks about the High Cost of Prescription Drugs
Senator Bernie Sanders speaks about how he was one of the first organizers of a group of senior citizens, mostly women who were dealing with breast cancer, who traveled to Canada to buy prescription drugs. Senator Sanders makes a very good point by asking the question, why should a drug manufactured in the United States cost ten times more than it does in Canada.
As anyone who has followed Senator Bernie Sanders can tell you, he has always been a strong advocate for lower prices of prescription drugs. Big pharmaceutical companies (big Pharma) is actually contributing a large amount of funding to his opponent, Hillary Clinton.
What’s in the Bernie Sanders says makes a lot of sense. He articulates his point very well, if you take the time to watch this video. Senator Bernie Sanders advocacy in favor of lowering the ridiculous and exploitative high price of prescription drugs, imposed on people by big Pharma, is exemplary. His advocacy is a perfect example of how consistent he has been on advocating for consumers.
Everyone knows that big Pharma hates Senator Bernie Sanders because he is a direct threat to the gravy train that they presently enjoy. Senator Bernie Sanders is elected president of the United States, they know very well that this gravy train will stop.
Meet Bernie Sanders
About. Meet Bernie. Bernie Sanders is a Democratic candidate for President of the United States. In 2006, he was elected to the U.S. Senate after 16 years as …
One of the ways you can get a sense of our momentum and the nervousness within the Clinton campaign is by seeing that they are now using massive amounts of super PAC money, funded largely by Wall Street, against our campaign.
One of those super PACs raised $15 million from Wall Street and the financial industry in the last half of 2015, and is now spending millions of dollars to try and tip the balance of a number of upcoming primaries and caucuses in Hillary Clinton’s favor. And just yesterday alone they reported spending nearly another $500,000.
I don’t have a super PAC, and I won’t go around asking millionaires and billionaires for money. I am humbled that this campaign is funded by more than 4 million contributions made by working people who have had ENOUGH of the billionaire class buying our candidates and elections.
But I am here to tell you that if we are going to win this primary and the White House, we’re going to have to stand together against the influence of Hillary Clinton’s super PACs in this race.
Contribute to our campaign to help us win on Super Tuesday and as a way of saying you have had ENOUGH of the billionaire class buying our candidates and elections.

What is happening in these final days before Super Tuesday is that in state after state, the gap is narrowing or we are now forging ahead. Three recent national polls actually show us in the lead. The reason we have so much momentum, and the reason we are doing so well, is because people know that Washington is too busy representing the interests of wealthy campaign contributors to worry about the middle class.
We are going to change that through this campaign, and through our political revolution. Add your contribution here.

Bernie Sanders: A Consistent Viewpoint for Many Years
Then Representative Bernie Sanders speaking out and against and condemning the first Persian Gulf War (1/17/1991). Unfortunately, most of the ill conditions that he talks about are still very much with us. This shows how consistent he has been over the years. It also shows that he has a good grasp of foreign policy, despite his critics who say otherwise.
Bernie Sanders has also been consistent in his viewpoint for many years. He has never supported the idea that far too many Americans seem to support; going to war is a practical solution to a problem. It seems that most Americans a raise are raised with what I call a “gunslinger mentality” that usually never accomplishes anything other than to bring pain and misery to others. Nothing tangible is ever accomplished with violence. I could never figure out why so many Americans seem to think the only way to solve a problem is taking up arms and killing other human beings. He is a refreshing breath of fresh air in his pacifist ideas.
Yet, I still think that Bernie Sanders would still keep this nation secure. He would just do so by using diplomacy first. However, if he was ever pushed into a corner by any country that tried to harm us, he would go to war if necessary. However, too many people in this country mistake Bernie Sanders antiwar ideals as weakness, despite the fact that they are his strengths. It takes a lot more strength to negotiate a solution to a problem than it does to kill the person causing the problem.
After all, it always seems easier to solve a problem with a weapon than a pen or by having a discussion with whomever you may have a difference with. This is just one of many reasons that I am very enthusiastic about the prospect of Bernie Sanders becoming president of the United States.

Bernie Sanders Committing Civil Disobedience – 1963
This video shows Senator Senator Sanders committing civil disobedience in 1963. Hopefully, this video will lay to rest the rumors, started by supporters of Hillary Clinton that Senator Sanders actually was not a part of the civil rights movement, as he says he was. I believe Senator Sanders.
Despite that many notable members of the civil rights movement, most notably Rep. John Lewis, himself a key player in the civil rights movement, says that he does not remember Senator Sanders as being a part of the movement. This is a totally ludicrous statement by Rep. Lewis. The civil rights movement, as anyone who has studied the history knows, was huge. It also contained many people who were not African-Americans. There is no way that Congressman Lewis would have remembered everyone who was involved in the civil rights movement.
In a movement as big as the civil rights movement was, how is it that Rep John Lewis would try to make us believe that he remembers everyone involved in the movement. On the other hand, Congressman Jim Clyburn of South Carolina also says that he remembers Senator Sanders’ involvement in the summer rights movement, even though he supports Hillary Clinton. Senator Sanders has also been endorsed by both Harry Belafonte and Spike Lee. In fact, Senator Sanders has been endorsed by a number of African-American celebrities
My helping to cast these aspersions on Bernie Sanders, Rep. Lewis is obviously guilty of playing partisan politics, and shows himself to me an obvious supporter of Hillary Clinton. As someone who has great respect for Congressman Jim Clyburn, I am quite appalled that he would take such a part in mind to downgrade Bernie Sanders to the point of almost calling him a liar. Congressman Clyburn is better than that, or at least I thought he was.
The best thing that he could do would be would be to tell the truth, and just say that he doesn’t remember all of the details about whether Senator Sanders was involved in the movement.
