The Cynical Times endorses peaceful revolution at The Bernie Box

I respectfully disagree with those who say choosing Bernie Sanders over Hillary Rodham Clinton is solely the province of the young and naive. I feel the same way as the kids do and I'm 51. Many of my age-mates are of a similar mind.

That’s why The Cynical Times is endorsing Bernie Sanders for president. It's the first real endorsement in the history of this news and satire website devoted to the faltering middle class.

I worked in the mainstream news media for more than 30 years before it was taken over by right-wing monied interests. During that time I covered both politics and economics in Washington, D.C., rubbing elbows with everyone from Alan Greenspan to Jeb Bush to Cory Booker; covered cops and courts in Newark, the Bronx and South Florida; covered energy, insurance and banking at the national and global level; and our military overseas.

I am wholly convinced that the naive view right now in America is held by those who believe they can present our shrinking middle class with another choice between two Wall Street agents and call it a proper election. Because that's what the U.S. has had every year since Jimmy Carter ran for our nation's highest office in 1976 and that's why our voter turnout is among the lowest in the so-called developed world.

Most Americans want to vote against both the Wall Street money machine and against the K-Street political lobbyists, and have been wanting to do so for some time. However, there's usually no meaningful way to do so. Until now.

That's why The Cynical Times is feeling The Bern.
