Myself being pretty much a life long Democrat (I tried the Republican party and it didn't take me long to give up on them) I am personally disgusted with most of the Democrat politicians. I have said all along we have a few here in New Mexico that I will back no matter what as I think they have a great record of standing up for the working people here in New Mexico. But for the most part, I am tired of their lies, their lack of interest in what the party used to represent. Such is the reason for my interest in Bernie.

At the time, it was easy to dismiss talk of revolution as the rallying cry of a 74-year-old democratic socialist who clings too dearly to memories of the 1960s. Eleven months and more than six million votes later, Sanders’ call for revolution is harder to ignore.

But what, exactly, would this political revolution look like? It’s not hard to imagine Sanders marching in the streets with the masses—he’s walked plenty of picket lines, most recently alongside Verizon workers in New York City last October—but that’s not the revolution he’s calling for. For Sanders, political revolution means shifting control of American politics away from corporate interests, convincing non-voters to go to the polls and attracting white working-class voters back to the Democratic Party, all while moving the party left enough to embrace democratic socialist policies.
A political revolution of that kind is going to require two things: a wave of candidates committed to a bold set of progressive ideas and a mass of voters with the political will to elect them. There’s evidence both of these are already here.
