IS BERNIE THE 3RD RAIL OF AMERICAN POLITICS?

A new, independently financed political party could make Sanders' call for "political revolution" and his claim that he is trying to build a movement more than a dream boldly proclaimed by an inspiring, if not quixotic, leader. It could deliberately seek to unify our currently fragmented movement cultures and operate as a vehicle for the substantive promise of Sanders' "political revolution": deep institutional and cultural reform. 


Doing so, it could begin to fulfill our country's lofty aspirations: a society truly ruled by the people with meaningful input available to everyone, absent discrimination on any basis -- race, gender, sexuality, nationality or religion.
