Bernie Sanders vs. the billionaires: Why Vermont’s socialist senator may run for president

Bernie Sanders vs. the billionaires: Why Vermont’s socialist senator may run for president | Green Forward | Scoop.it
He's spent decades warning America that it's drifting toward oligarchy. Could this be his moment?
Josh Marks's insight:

"Though Bernie Sanders has never been a member of the Democratic Party, he's considering challenging Hillary Clinton for the Democratic presidential nomination. He believes the central issue in America today is that the nation is drifting toward oligarchy. To stop this, he hopes to mobilize the American public — including traditionally Republican constituencies like elderly, rural, and white voters — to back an explicit, full-on challenge to the power of billionaires and corporate interests. With Thomas Piketty's book becoming a bestseller, and politicians like Elizabeth Warren and Bill de Blasio winning enthusiastic support for campaigning on inequality, could the Democratic electorate be ready for Bernie Sanders' pitch?"

In Minnesota, thousands of Native Americans protest Redskins’ name | Green Forward | Scoop.it
People opposed to the “Redskins” name descend before Sunday’s game on the Minnesota Vikings’ field.
Josh Marks's insight:

This is why the Washington professional football team name will change.
