Fresh off a huge victory in New Hampshire, Bernie Sanders just keeps getting better and better. This most recent campaign video, Matador Network reports, provides a powerful message to voters about what Sanders’ intentions as a candidate are for the United States.
The video is simple, yet stylized, and makes it very clear what Bernie’s goals are for America. It begins with this quote:
‘Our job is not to divide. Our job is to bring people together.’
The video then continues with flashes of images of all kinds of people: men and women of every age, race, and presumably, background, sexuality, and gender identity. The images are then shown being torn in half, as Sanders talks about not allowing ourselves to be divided. Finally, the faces that have been torn in half are put together with a different half, as he talks again about bring people together.
This new video runs one minute long, and every second of that minute is used effectively. The message is simple: With Bernie Sanders as president, the country will become united rather than continuing to divide itself further.
Sanders, who has described himself as a Democratic Socialist and progressive, is all about bringing people together and taking big money out of politics. He is a voice for the people, rather than corporations, as is evidenced by his decision to raise money for his campaign without the help of a Super PAC. Instead, his campaign has been funded by the people he wants to serve. Sanders has received 3.5 million individual contributions from voters, averaging $27 each.
With the inclusion of a variety of people, the creators of the video seem to be attempting to make up for their last ad, which was criticized for featuring predominantly white men and women. This new ad, with its obvious diversity, shows that Sanders and the men and women working on his campaign, are listening to criticism from the American people, which is more than we can say for any of the other presidential candidates.
