[The U.S. has] “become, in essence, the new Rome.”

– Former chief of staff to Secretary of State Colin Powell in the George W. Bush administration, and adjunct professor at the College of William and Mary, Colonel Lawrence Wilkerson in his sharp critique of U.S. “imperial power,” warfare and empire-building.”  He also sees Bernie Sanders as the only presidential candidate “who seems to understand, both intuitively and intellectually” the foreign policy crisis the country faces.

From an op-ed in The New York TimesWhy I’m Supporting Bernie Sanders:

By U.S. Senator Jeff Merkley (D-OR)

NO decision we make as Americans more dramatically affects the direction of our country than our choice for president. He or she is more than the manager of the executive branch, commander in chief or appointer of judges. The president reflects, but also helps define, our national values, priorities and direction.

After considering the biggest challenges facing our nation and the future I want for my children and our country, I have decided to become the first member of the Senate to support my colleague Bernie Sanders for president.
