bernie sanders for credit unionsHave you seen the CU Times poll asking “Which presidential candidate would be best for credit unions?”

First there’s the obvious rhetoric of his speeches. When I hear these words, I can’t help but feel there’s a natural connection to the philosophy of “people helping people” and the cooperative values I’ve believed in long before people were feelin’ the Bern:

“Our job is not to divide; our job is to bring people together. If we do not allow them to divide us up by race, by sexual orientation, by gender; by not allowing them to divide us up by whether or not we were born in America or whether we’re immigrants; when we stand together as white, and black, and Hispanic, and gay, and straight, and woman, and man; when we stand together and demand that this country works for all of us rather than the few, we will transform America, and that is what this campaign is all about; it’s bringing people together.”
