Sen. Bernard Sanders has to be highly commended for the role he played in the Democratic primaries, and its convention in Philadelphia. In terms of moral courage and intellectual honesty, he surpassed all of the people involved the presidential elections.
Even after discovering that the Democratic establishment violated its own rules by favoring Secretary Hillary Clinton over Sanders, he showed his superior character in such a profound way. He asked his followers to give their support to Clinton. What a magnanimous thing to do; he put the “We” above the “I.”
I saw Sanders’ statements referring to the social political situation in the nation as profound and honest, and he based his “social revolution” on democratic principles and humanistic ideals. We are fortunate that he continues to devote his life to public service.
