After all, I was a senator from a small state with very little name recognition. Our campaign had no money, no political organization, and we were taking on the entire Democratic Party establishment. And, by the way, we were also running against the most powerful political operation in the country.
The Clinton machine had won the presidency for Bill Clinton twice and almost won the Democratic presidential nomination for Hillary Clinton in When our campaign finally came to a close in July , it turned out that the pundits had got it wrong—big-time. We had made history and run one of the most consequential campaigns in the modern history of the country—a campaign that would, in a very profound way, change America.
We received more than 13 million votes in primaries and caucuses throughout the country. We won twenty-two states, more than a few by landslide proportions. We won 1, pledged delegates to the Democratic Convention, 46 percent of the total. Importantly, in virtually every state, we won a strong majority of younger people—the future of America.
We won large percentages of the vote from white, black, Latino, Asian-American, and Native American youth. We set the agenda for the America of tomorrow. At a time when political apathy is high, voter turnout is abysmally low, and millions of Americans are giving up on the political process, our campaign attracted the energetic support of hundreds of thousands of volunteers in every state in the country.
We had the largest rallies of the campaign and, in total, more than 1. As a result of our victories in a number of states, there are now at least five new chairs of state Democratic parties who were elected as part of the political revolution.
Further, there are a number of progressive candidates, energized and supported by our campaign, running for office for everything from school board to the U. Congress—and many of them will win. New blood. New energy in the political process. And we showed—in a way that can change politics in America forever— that you can run a competitive national grassroots campaign without begging millionaires and billionaires for campaign contributions.
We, proudly, were the only campaign not to have a super PAC. In a manner unprecedented in American history, we received some 8 million individual campaign contributions. These donations came from 2. During the campaign, we forced discussion on issues the establishment had swept under the rug for far too long. We brought attention to the grotesque level of income and wealth inequality in this country and the importance of breaking up the large banks that brought our economy to the brink of collapse.
We addressed the global crisis of climate change , the need for real comprehensive immigration reform , the importance of developing a foreign policy that values diplomacy over war, and so much more. Importantly, the support that we won showed that our ideas were not outside of the mainstream. We showed that millions of Americans want a bold, progressive agenda that takes on the billionaire class and creates a government that works for all of us and not just for big campaign donors.
The widespread and popular support we received for our agenda helped transform the Democratic Party and forced Secretary Clinton to move her position closer to ours in a number of areas. She ended up being in opposition to both.
As a result of negotiations between the two camps after the campaign ended, Secretary Clinton adopted bold positions on higher education and health care that moved her closer to what we had advocated.
Our campaign also had a huge impact on the writing of the most progressive platform, by far, in the history of the Democratic Party. Despite being in the minority, our supporters ended up shaping much of that plat- form.
Here is some of what the Democratic Party of stands for:. During the fifteen months of the campaign there was one central point that I made over and over again, and let me repeat it here: This campaign was never just about electing a president of the United States—as enormously important as that was. This campaign was about transforming America. It was about the understanding that real change never takes place from the top on down.
It always takes place from the bottom on up. It takes place when ordinary people, by the millions, are prepared to stand up and fight for justice. I ended this campaign far more optimistic about the future of our country than when I began. How could it be otherwise? In fields in California, I spoke to thousands of working people from every conceivable background who came together determined to transform our country. They were farmworkers, environmentalists, gay activists, and students.
They know, and I know, that we are stronger when we stand together and do not allow demagogues to divide us up by race, gender, sexual orientation, or where we were born.
In Portland, Maine, on a cold day, my staff watched people wait outside on long lines for hours, determined to cast their votes at the caucus there. In Arizona, it took some people five hours to cast a vote—but they stayed and voted. All across this country, people are fighting back to create the vibrant democracy that we desperately need and to stop our drift toward oligarchy. In New York City, I walked the picket line with striking workers at Verizon who were determined not to see the company cut benefits and out- source jobs.
They stood up against outrageous corporate greed. They stood together as a proud union. And they won. In Washington, D. That we need to raise the minimum wage to a living wage. Their message and their fight is reverberating all across the country.
This book describes the history-making campaign that we ran. But more important, it looks to the future. It lays out a new path for America based on principles of economic, social, racial, and environmental justice. On be- half of our children and grandchildren, it is a path that must be followed and a fight that must be won. Shows Good Morning America. World News Tonight. This Week. The View. What Would You Do?

Our Revolution: A Future to Believe In
It was released on November 15, , a week after the election of Donald Trump. The book was written in the context of Sanders's presidential campaign and aimed to explain some of its rationale. In the book, Sanders sets out his position on climate change, free college tuition, income inequality, closing the gender wage gap and defeating Donald Trump while campaigning for Hillary Clinton during the last three months leading to the presidential election.

The memoir also covers how his campaign had no money, no political organization, and it was taking on the entire Democratic Party establishment.

Никогда еще получение разведывательной информации не было столь легким делом. Шифры, перехваченные АНБ, вводились в ТРАНСТЕКСТ и через несколько минуты выплевывались из машины в виде открытого текста. Секретов отныне больше не существовало.
Ради всего святого, зачем вы это сделали. Чтобы скрыть свою маленькую тайну. Стратмор сохранял спокойствие. - И что же это за секрет.

Его мечта была близка к осуществлению.
