Why you should vote for Bernie Sanders

Bernie Sanders is currently the longest-serving independent in Congress (16 years as a representative and the past 8 as a senator), with his past election winning 71% of the vote.

Many who like him point to his character:

  • He speaks very plainly, does not shy away from answering questions directly and avoids the ultra-careful vague-talk of many other candidates (see this interview as an example.)
  • He does not run attack ads
  • He refuses to fund his campaign with Super PACs

Others support him for his stance on issues (many follow Bernie because they found him to align with their views closer than any other candidate using isidewith.com - take the quiz and see for yourself):

  • He wants to help get money out of politics (by overturning Citizens United, make campaign donations more transparent)
  • Work to end our contribution to climate change (with carbon taxes, stopping the keystone XL pipeline, and shifting the country to more solar energy sources)
  • Lessen income and wealth inequality (with higher taxes on the wealthy)
  • Make a higher education more affordable (see his current attempt at this in congress)
  • Free universal access to quality healthcare (move the US to a single-payer system)
  • Make it mandatory for employers to offer paid sick and family leave (the US is the only developed country that does not guarantee paid maternity leave)

To keep this brief, I’ll stop here, though there is much more to him than this (I encourage you to look into why the Military Officers Association of America awarded him with a Congressional Leadership Award, or why labor unions have supported his campaign so much.) If you want to learn more, check out his wiki or campaign pages and compare where he gets his campaign financed from with other candidates using opensecrets. Support Sanders for president, 2016.

July 4th Weekend, in Chicago:

Shot & Killed: 10
Shot & Wounded: 55
Total Shot: 65
Total Homicides: 10

All with the strictest gun control laws on the books, and all without the presence of a Confederate Flag flapping around. Imagine that.

It honestly breaks my heart that pro-life blogs are attacked in such brutal ways. Anon after anon telling them to kill themselves and wishing rape upon them, just for voicing their pro-life beliefs. Y'all have serious issues. I can’t believe you guys brag about how accepting y'all are, then just spew waves of hate towards people who have different opinions.

Bernie Sanders Organizing a Sit In For Desegregated Student Housing Back in the 1960s When He Attended the University Of Chicago

To everyone so concerned with “strict interpretation” of the Constitution: when our Founders wrote the Second Amendment, the arms we had a right to bear were basically limited to muskets and rudimentary/mostly ineffective pistols, NOT assault rifles and semiautomatic handguns. 

That was the original intent. 

It wasn’t supposed to go down like this. In the aftermath of the 2014 midterm elections, when Democrats ceded control of the Senate and saw their deficit steepen in statehouses across the country, President Barack Obama was widely expected to set aside his ambitions and map out a more cautious agenda. That was eight months ago.  

After a thrilling and fraught week in Washington D.C., and South Carolina, Obama’s legacy is coming into plain view.

None of This Support Matters If We Do Not Show Up At The Polls In Both the Primary AND General Election.

President Obama signs law targeting boycotts of Israel

The new US-Israel Trade and Commercial Enhancement Act is specifically targeted “to discourage politically motivated actions to boycott, divest from, or sanction Israel by states, non-member states of the United Nations, international organisations, or affiliated agencies of international organisations that are politically motivated and are intended to penalise or otherwise limit commercial relations specifically with Israel or persons doing business in Israel or in Israeli- controlled territories.”
