The Classic Ethos Apeal: The Middle Class
Bernie Sanders, like many politicians, has strong feelings about the middle class. He knows that gearing his argument towards the middle class will give him more votes in the end than the wealthy 1%. Sanders says that congress is focusing on the interests of the billionaires in America and not the lower classes. Sander says what the "political revolution is about is bringing people together to finally say enough is enough, this government belongs to us not just the billionaires." Sanders strongly emphasizes the interest's of the middle class and the degradation of congressional values. Instead of looking out for the good of the country, Sanders says congress focuses too much on the wealthy. By aligning himself with the middle class, Sanders has a good stake in the middle classes' vote.
