6 Soundbytes From Bernie’s Historic Georgetown Speech on Democratic Socialism

Bernie Sanders went to Georgetown University on Thursday November 19, 2015 to explain to the American what Democratic Socialism is and what it means to him. He explained how it informs his views on higher education, poverty, health care, the minimum wage and more.

If Bernie Sanders proves the pundits wrong(and we think he will) and gets elected as President, today’s speech will go down in American history as an event that helped bring about a way of life that a vast majority of people agree would be better than what we have now.

Here are 6 soundbytes from the speech courtesy of NPR, who are clearly not the biggest Bernie fans in the world. So much for having fair and unbiased reporting, NPR clearly has an agenda but regardless, we’ll take a moment to thank them and who knows maybe they, like many others can stop being afraid of the word Democratic Socialism.

    Agreed. Looking back from a vantage point of the near future, Bernie’s Georgetown University speech will be seen in retrospect to have been one of the early defining moments of the political revolution. During both of Bernie’s major media events of the past week – the second Democratic presidential debate, as well as yesterday’s speech at Georgetown University – I’ve never before seen him more authoritative and more statesmanlike.

    This is leadership – to articulate a clear and compelling vision of progress, combined with the moral authority and the moral courage necessary to bring it to fruition. This is why Bernie Sanders deserves to become the 45th President of the United States.
