USA: Sanders lauds benefits of Democratic Socialism in landmark speech

United States, Washington D.C
November 20, 2015 at 23:12 GMT +00:00 · Published

U.S presidential candidate Bernie Sanders gave a long-awaited speech on Democratic Socialism at Georgetown University in Washington DC, Thursday. Sanders talked to students of the university for over an hour, highlighting the pillars of his “political revolution”, based on socialist principles that hopes to bring economic fairness back to America.

During the Q and A session, a student asked about using the term 'socialist', to which Sanders replied that while he knows some people are uncomfortable with that term, "it is imperative that we create a political revolution, that millions of people get involved in the political process, and that we create a government that works for all not just the few."

Sanders was elected to the U.S. Senate in 2006 after serving 16 years in the House of Representatives. He is the longest serving independent member of Congress in U.S history.
