Bernie Sanders' Old-Time Religion | Charles J. Reid, Jr. - Huffington Post - Huffington Post

Bernie Sanders' Old-Time Religion | Charles J. Reid, Jr. - Huffington Post - Huffington Post | Gender, Religion, & Politics | Scoop.it
Why such success, and why so soon? I will suggest that Bernie Sanders has tapped into something very deep in the American psyche: the realization that America is at its greatest, and at its best, when it is standing for progressive values.
DrSophi's insight:

"So why is Bernie Sanders so popular? I will submit that perhaps it is because many see this progressive legacy to be at grave risk. The Republican nominee for vice president in 2012, Paul Ryan, sought to convert Medicare into a voucher system as part of his Orwellian "Path to Prosperity" budget. And what about voting rights? In state after state, Republican-controlled legislatures have enacted so-called "voter identification laws" on the pretext that there is a crisis of ineligible voters casting ballots. There is no crisis. It is entirely imaginary, trumped-up. The real purpose behind these statutes, according to civil-rights organizations and the ACLU, is nothing less than voter suppression. ....
