I just hope Bernie Sanders doesn't stop speaking out against both political parties. People need to wake up get involved!!I want All Americans to get educated about what big money in politics is doing to this country and their lives and their children and grandchildren's future's, or more likely "lack of a future"!

Bernie's history is fascinating, but I wasn't that thrilled with the author's writing style. I'm going to try another Bernie book from the many that are available.
