I am more confident about the future of this country at the end of this [book] than I was at the beginning.
-Bernie Sanders

Start with a quote. This one from Bernie sums up perfectly how inspiring Bernie Sanders has been for me personally and how amazing this book was. This campaign memoir is an amazing take on American politics in 2016, from the seemingly total blindness to suffering Americans from the big wigs at top like the Clintons to the downright evil tactics of the Republican party to keep the wealthy, wealthy and the poor discouraged and disenfranchised.

I voted in the primaries for Bernie and being a distopian at heart, proudly proclaimed the next day that by taking the primary from Bernie, Hilary was giving the office to Trump and I still believe this 100%. Bernie lays out clearly how toward the end, EVERYONE knew that he had a better shot of beating Trump, EVERYONE knew Hilary was going to have a hard time and Bernie would have clear shot. But damn Hilary if she didn't have to have her time to shine, the country be damned.

The second we lost Bernie as a candidate the liberal agenda was for the first time in almost 10 years, called into serious question. Hilary was practically doomed from the start. As people screamed for anti-establishment candidates, the Dems gave us another Clinton. We could be living in a world of free education, healthcare, flying cars, 100gb 6g internet and who knows what else if Bernie would have been ALLOWED to become president by Hillary, oh well.

This is a great book, Bernie is a great man, too bad we missed out on being a great country for another 8 years.
