Bernie Sanders

Data de nascimento: 8. Setembro 1941

Bernard "Bernie" Sanders é um político estadunidense, atualmente servindo como senador júnior dos EUA pelo estado de Vermont. Filiado ao Partido Democrata entre 2015 e 2016, ele foi o político independente com mais tempo de mandato na história do Congresso dos Estados Unidos, embora sua coligação com os democratas tenha permitido-lhe postos em comissões parlamentares e, por vezes, dado maioria ao partido em votações. Sanders representa a minoria na Comissão de Orçamento do Senado desde janeiro de 2015 e, anteriormente, serviu por dois anos como presidente da Comissão dos Veteranos de Guerra. Sanders concorreu às eleições primárias que definiram o candidato democrata à presidência dos Estados Unidos no pleito de 2016. Derrotado nas urnas pelos eleitores de Hillary Clinton, Sanders acabou reconhecendo a derrota em julho de 2016 e declarou apoio à ex-Secretária de Estado nas eleições presidenciais daquele ano.Sanders nasceu e foi criado na cidade de Nova Iorque. Graduou-se na Universidade de Chicago em 1964. Na universidade, se filiou à Liga Socialista dos Jovens e organizou protestos a favor do movimento dos direitos civis para o Congresso da Igualdade Racial e para o Comitê Coordenador Estudantil Não-Violento. Após fixar residência em Vermont em 1968, Sanders foi candidato ao governo do estado e ao Senado dos EUA no início dos anos 1970, sem sucesso. Como político independente, foi eleito prefeito de Burlington, a maior cidade do estado, em 1981. Foi reeleito três vezes. Em 1990, foi eleito para representar o distrito único de Vermont na Câmara dos Representantes. Serviu na câmara baixa do Congresso por 16 anos, até ser eleito para o Senado dos Estados Unidos em 2006. Em 2012, foi reeleito com 71% dos votos.

Sanders ascendeu à proeminência nacional em 2010, quando obstruiu a pauta do Senado em protesto à expansão das isenções fiscais da era Bush. As políticas defendidas pelo senador são similares às dos partidos social-democratas europeus, em especial àquelas implementadas nos países nórdicos. Sanders é uma das principais vozes do progressismo estadunidense no que diz respeito a desigualdade de renda, sistema universal de saúde, licença-maternidade, aquecimento global, direitos LGBT e reforma eleitoral. Sanders é um crítico de longa data da política externa dos Estados Unidos e um dos primeiros opositores da Guerra do Iraque. Também defende os direitos civis de minorias e as liberdades civis, sendo crítico da discriminação racial no poder judiciário, e de políticas de espionagem como o Patriot Act e os programas de vigilância da NSA.

Citações Bernie Sanders

„There are no "human" oppressors. Oppressors have lost their humanity.“

—  Bernie Sanders

"Man – and Woman" in Vermont Freeman (Mid-February 1972)
1970s
Contexto: There are no "human" oppressors. Oppressors have lost their humanity. On one hand "slavishness," on the other hand "pigness." Six of one, half dozen of the other. Who wins?
Many women seem to be walking a tightrope now. Their qualities of love, openness, and gentleness were too deeply enmeshed with qualities of dependency, subservience, and masochism. How do you love — without being subservient? How do you maintain a relationship without giving up your identity and without getting strung out? How do you reach out and give your heart to your lover, but maintain the soul which is you?

„This idea of suddenly, one day or maybe a night, rounding up 11 million people and taking them outside of this country is a vulgar, absurd idea that I would hope very few people in America support.“

—  Bernie Sanders

2010s, 2016, Democratic Presidential Debate in Miami (9 March 2016)
Contexto: Poverty is increasing. And if wages are going down, I don’t know why we need millions of people to be coming into this country as guestworkers who will work for lower wages than American workers and drive wages down even lower than they are right now.... You have guestworker programs that have been described by the.... In this country, immigration reform is a very hot debate. It’s divided the country. But I would hope very much, that as we have that debate, we do not, as Donald Trump and others have done, resort to racism and xenophobia and bigotry. This idea of suddenly, one day or maybe a night, rounding up 11 million people and taking them outside of this country is a vulgar, absurd idea that I would hope very few people in America support.

„Violence of any kind is unacceptable in our society and I condemn this action in the strongest possible terms. Real change can only come about through nonviolent action, and anything else runs against our most deeply held American values.“

—  Bernie Sanders

Remarks regarding the shooting at practice for a congressional baseball game in Alexandria, Virginia (14 June 2017) https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GcH2i7um5sw
2010s, 2017
Contexto: I have just been informed that the alleged shooter at the Republican baseball practice is someone who apparently volunteered on my presidential campaign. I am sickened by this despicable act, and let me be as clear as I can be: Violence of any kind is unacceptable in our society and I condemn this action in the strongest possible terms. Real change can only come about through nonviolent action, and anything else runs against our most deeply held American values.
My hopes and prayers are that Representative Scalise, congressional staff and the Capitol Police Officers who were wounded make a quick and full recovery. I also want to thank the Capitol Police for their heroic actions to prevent further harm.

„The bottom line is when Senator Inhofe says global warming is a hoax, he is just dead wrong, according to the vast majority of climate scientists.“

„You can’t become a billionaire stepping over children sleeping on the street.“

—  Bernie Sanders

Fonte: The Speech: A Historic Filibuster on Corporate Greed and the Decline of Our Middle Class

„The real issue is not whether you're black or white, whether you're a woman or a man. In my view, a woman could be elected president of the United States. The real issue is whose side are you on? Are you on the side of workers and poor people, or are you on the side of big money and the corporations?“

„Let's talk about democratic socialism. We are living in many ways in a socialist society right now. The problem is, as Dr. Martin Luther King reminded us, "We have socialism for the very rich, rugged individualism for the poor."“

—  Bernie Sanders

When Donald Trump gets $800 million in tax breaks and subsidies to build luxury condominiums, that's socialism for the rich. We have to subsidize Walmart’s workers on Medicaid and food stamps because the wealthiest family in America pays starvation wages. That's socialism for the rich. I believe in democratic socialism for working people. Not billionaires. Health care for all. Educational opportunity for all.
