Bernie Sanders


American politician who currently serves as the junior United States Senator from Vermont.

Sanders is the longest-serving independent in U.S. congressional history. A self-described democratic socialist, he favors policies similar to those of social democratic parties in Europe, particularly those instituted by the Nordic countries. He caucuses with the Democratic Party and has been the ranking minority member on the Senate Budget Committee since January 2015.

Sanders settled in Vermont in 1968, and ran unsuccessfully for Governor and U.S. Senator in the early to mid-1970s as a member of the Liberty Union Party. As an independent, Sanders was elected mayor of Burlington, Vermont's most populous city, in 1981. He was reelected to three more two-year mayoral terms before being elected to represent Vermont's at-large congressional district in the United States House of Representatives in 1990. He served as a congressman for 16 years before being elected to succeed the retiring Republican-turned-independent Jim Jeffords in the U.S. Senate in 2006. In 2012, he was reelected by a large margin, capturing almost 71% of the popular vote.

Since his election to the Senate, Sanders has emerged as a leading progressive voice on issues such as income inequality, universal healthcare, parental leave, climate change, LGBT rights, and campaign finance reform. He rose to national prominence on the heels of his 2010 filibuster of the proposed extension of the Bush-era tax rates for the wealthy. Sanders is also outspoken on civil rights and civil liberties, and has been particularly critical of mass surveillance policies such as the USA PATRIOT Act, as well as racial discrimination in the criminal justice system. He has long been critical of U.S. foreign policy, and was an early and outspoken opponent of the Iraq War.

Sanders announced his intention to seek the Democratic Party's nomination for president on 30 April 2015, in an address on the Capitol lawn. His campaign was officially launched on 26 May in Burlington.

In the first primary election vote in Iowa on 1 February 2016, he arrived at nearly 50%, the same result as Hilary Clinton.

Source Notes

Isaac Starkman quoted Donald Clayton's blog: "The birth of Bernard Sanders occurs in New York City, Borough of Brooklyn, New York. He is born at 00:00 A./P.M. on September 8, 1941. His mother is Dorothy Glassburg (married name Dorothy Sanders). His father is Eli Sanders. Certification of Live Birth – State of New York – No information or document appears to publicly exist". Kanon McAfee reports per email: Donald Clayton, on whose Qala bist blog appears the 0:00 a./p.m. time has told me directly via twitter, "... the 0:00 is a space-saver entry for information that is not known ..."

Starkman quotes "Bernie Sanders' birth time is not entirely certain. I talked with a man who campaigned with Bernie Sanders in the Burlington, Vermont races 35 years ago, and was also an astrology enthusiast. According to him, working off of his memory, Bernie's birth time was 12:27 PM EDT"

Sy Scholfield quotes an interview in which Sanders says he does not know his rising sign: "Jessica Pels: I know you’re a Virgo, just like me, which explains a lot. But do you know your Rising sign? Bernie Sanders: No. Sam Feher, assistant to the editor-in-chief [of Cosmopolitan magazine]: Scorpio! BS: Oh, Scorpio!" ("Cosmo Asks Bernie Sanders the Questions Young Women Want Answered," by Jessica Pels, Cosmopolitan, 27 Sept 2019 [1]).

There exists no reliable source, it is all hearsay and speculation. The time has to be considered unknown, until substantial evidence comes forward.
