Bernie Sanders imageWatch Senator Sanders’ awesome speech blasting income-inequality in the US, where he goes so far as to identify it as a war (I concur).

Wikipedia says “Sanders is a self-described democratic socialist, and has praised European social democracy. He is the first person elected to the U.S. Senate to identify as a socialist.” So he’s the odd one out. Not a coincidence, probably. I hope he doesn’t end up assassinated, like the only catholic president they ever had, or harassed and demonised like their first openly black president (although apparently as many as five presidents before Obama likely had black ancestry, by the way)…
