there are those who say we cannot defeat a corrupt political system and fix a rigged economy. but i believe we need to lift our vision above the obstacles in place and look to the american horizon. to a nation where every child can not only dream of going to college, but attend one. where quality healthcare will be a birthright of every citizen. where a good job is not a wish, but a reality. where women receive equal pay and a living wage is paid to all.

there is time for rest and grandchildren. a nation that defends our people and our values, but no longer carries so much of that burden alone. i know we can create that america if we listen to our conscience and our hearts and not to the pundits and the naysayers. i'm bernie sanders. i approve this message,

6:41 am
it took firefighters no longer than 15 minutes to pull houdini safely from the icy water. firefighters thank houdini's owner for choosing to call 9-1-1 instead of attempting a rescue on his own. and ohio educators can't figure out why a teenager showed up at a high school and lied to officials... all to pose as a state lawmaker. it happened recently in sycamore, ohio... where state senator david burke was scheduled to speak at mohawk high. but in late december, 18- year-old isaiah akins drove up and said the senator asked him
