CONSCIENCE OF A PROGRESSIVE is a comprehensive collection of congressional speeches over the last 25 years by Bernie Sanders. In 2016, those speeches have made Mr. Sanders a surging, underdog presidential candidate.
Mr. Sanders has a moral authenticity, unchanged across the years. He is what he is, a decent man trying to do good, and willing to risk it all for the progressive cause.
This collection includes key excerpts of his celebrated oration in 2010, known as THE SPEECH, which made Mr. Sanders a national celebrity.
Not to be missed: A breath-taking series of stunning prophecies made 25 years ago, as a freshman congressman.
In the early 1990s, Mr. Sanders warned that the then popular First Iraq War would lead to more wars; that America was headed to a crisis in health care; that U.S. banks were dangerously undemocratic; and that export of jobs to low-wage China and Mexico threatened the American middle-class.
From his earliest days, Bernie Sanders has advocated for the oppressed, the disadvantaged, and the voiceless. He has been for peace in a time of war, and a voice of reason in a time of extremism.
Above all, Mr. Sanders has been the unflinching defender of the American middle-class and their American Dream. He has repeatedly warned of a growing inequality that threatens all that is good in America.
Bernie Sanders has made thousands of speeches in Congress over a quarter century. Boston Hill Press abridges and annotates excerpts from 50 of these addresses. Their skill and power confirm his lifelong sincerity. He has told truth to power, and endured the lonely consequences, rather than sell his soul.
Bernie Sanders is not just the conscience of a progressive—he is the conscience of America.
