Meet the essential Bernie Sanders an authentic and uncompromising champion of the people.

Independent United States Senator Bernie Sanders with a thirty-five-year career in public service, first as Burlington, Vermont s mayor, then as Vermont s sole representative to Congress, and currently as a United States senator is now campaigning to become president of the United States. His goal is to build a movement to take back our country from the rich and powerful, and return it to its rightful owners we, the American people.

Sanders common sense, populist message is resonating with Democrats, Republicans, independents, as well as ordinary working-and middle-class Americans from all walks of life, including millennials, seniors, veterans, immigrants, environmentalists, union workers, and more.

A national, single-payer health care system
Free public higher education
Taking on wealth and income inequality
Preserving Social Security
Caring for our veterans
Ensuring civil rights for all
Combatting climate change
Reforming Wall Street, and much more.

"The Essential Bernie Sanders and His Vision for America" is a must-listen for anyone who shares a vision for a forward-looking, sustainable, and more just United States of America, and is eager to change the course of history.
