Instead of presuming everyone coming to this website already understands all there is to know about Senator Bernie Sanders, we think it’s important to provide some background. What follows are online resources, articles and three videos starting with his talk at Georgetown University explaining democratic socialism. In the coming months, we may change these or add more videos. If you’d like to share this or any other page on this website, do not use the generic citizensagainstplutocracy.org URL. Instead, scroll down to the bottom and click on the Twitter button under “Share this:” (You do not need a Twitter account.) A little window will open that has a short URL in it. Highlight, copy and paste that into a Facebook or blog comment; and thank you!
An unbelievable amount of information is available at Bernie University dot com.
Sanders has a 50-year history of standing up for civil and minority rights.
