The ‘Nones’ are 23% of the US

“… a massive group of Americans … reject any label or affiliation to describe their faith. At 23 percent of the U.S. population, this left-leaning group called ‘Nones’ are the Democratic parallel to the GOP’s white evangelicals — except without organization, PACs, leadership and a clear agenda. They do, however, have one big expectation of political candidates: Be ethical, and go light on the God talk.” - Michelle Boorstein of the Washington Post

I am a ‘none’. Is it time ‘nones’ get organized and politically active?

Honestly I think Bernie is highly idealistic about his proposals, but then again so is having an independent democratic socialist run for office who runs his campaign from the proceeds of his supports and not succumbing to corporate leadership and super PAC funding.

And YET he’s made it this far and kept true to his word back when he was serving as governor of Vermont and when he served as member of US House of Representatives. He has just as much- if not more experience- than Hilary and although he doesn’t get much media attention, he’s persevered and even surpassed Hilary in recent polls of registered Democrats, women and older voters while holding onto his lead among registered independents, men and younger voters.

Even with his mic rigged during last night’s debate, he stayed on top of the agenda, spoke truthfully and hammered down on his critics. With all that being said, he’s not your average politician.

If you vote for Hilary just because you think she’s more likely to win the democratic primary - let me just say this simply: You suck. If you don’t believe in government, then why vote? You are wasting your time regardless and putting to waste all the hard work and dedication others have put towards a campaign that actually gives a damn about the increasingly diminishing middle class and lower class that represents you.
