Love him or Loathe him, Bernie Sanders is a force to be reckoned with. If not for the role of POTUS or Commander in Chief, but the hand on the pulse
that is the youth of this country. Hillary Clinton is established, I'll give her that, but established in what? Corporate pandering for the highest
In this country we do have a shift, a radical realization by the younger generations that the mantle is being passed and guess what, it's your turn.
To the Bernie supporters (like me), he seeks to soothe an open nerve that keeps throbbing in your jaw, if only for but a moment. People by the
millions are coming out to speak against the corporate establishments and lobbyists on both sides. Sanders and Trump are both "renegade" long shots,
but in both cases they have proved people wrong again and again and again. Media bias, lies via omission and fraud are just but a few things that
propagate this election cycle. On the right side, Trump seeks to further his own ego while avoiding actual questions. Trump's own staffers speak out
against him for continuing a charade of a campaign designed to evoke anger and division among us all while painting himself as lord high commander
here to save you all from the enemy he so clearly points the finger at depending on the situation. He ignores actual policy questions in favor of
repeating "I'm building a wall," as if that's somehow going to make everything better. Didn't work for China, not going to work here.
On the left you have Bernie, who his ideas seem radical, and for the uneducated and easily offended/intimated, they seem like lunacy. The media love
to paint him as maniacal as Ron Paul, and as potentially evil as Stalin, completely ignoring the fact that he has garnered support against numerous
odds in a deck clearly stacked against him. If you examine his actual policies and stop for one second to think about what he's trying to say, you'll
realize that he's not any different from the New Deal politics of FDR's era. These New Deal policies are the same ones that created more prosperity
and benefits for the American people than any other point in our countries history. But let's not focus on what he says, lets instead look at what he
does. Bernie is the one thing vacant from politics - He's honest. Bernie is consistent to a fault, he says what he believes and never strays from it.
Then you have Hillary, who changes her mind, ideas and the things that she supports at her core and that "make up who she is" whenever it is
financially or politically beneficial. She is a proven liar, a flip-flopper, a panderer and a corporate sellout. Hillary at her core is as pro-wall
street and big brother as they come. Looking more at her policies, Hillary is pro war, pro corporate interest and somehow she garners support for
being a "strong woman." I can't in good conscience understand how a person, regardless of gender, can run for POTUS and be under federal
There will be those of you who say to give up, that he's crazy, he should just stop! But isn't that the point? Isn't that what the entire DNC has been
doing since the beginning? Hasn't the DNC put debates on during football games to prevent Bernie's message from getting out, all why limiting the
debates to just a handful? Hasn't the MSM refused to show the tens of thousands of people showing up to Bernie rallies, filling up stadiums and lining
up streets for miles, but they'll show a cropped room of Hillary supporters in a high school gym that is half empty. Hasn't the MSM continued to add
the "super-delegate" totals from 8 months prior to the first vote in an effort to fluff up Hillary's numbers? Despite rampant voter fraud, proven and
even ADMITTED fraud, refusals to cast re-votes, delegates being awarded to Hillary despite losing by double digits in a primary, and the last hurrah,
California. Her planned "winning announcement" days prior to the vote even being cast in an effort to disenfranchise Bernie supporters from turning up
to vote for him? Unfortunately it worked.
After all of this, all of the bias, the sleazy tricks and dirty games that have been played, Bernie should just stop right? What kind of man would
stand in the way of a woman trying to get into the white house? He must be sexist right? I'm sure his "communist ideas" will never work here, so just
step down right? What kind of person could stand against all of this, remain positive, not stoop to negative attacks and still connect with the
American people on a level not seen in decades? Bernie Sanders.
All of us, no matter which of the triad you are supporting are frogs in the pot, and the water is getting warmer. Some of us have figured out why that
person keeps turning the knob up every time we look at why they are doing what they are doing, and some of us are simply blaming the pot. As I said
before, Bernie has touched a nerve of the younger generations of this country, and this is motivating people to take interest in why the water is
getting warmer. We cannot survive if we continue like this. I will not concede to Hillary, nor will I invest in Trump to spite her, I simply will not.
I am glad Bernie is continuing, because there is always a chance, despite what the MSM, the DNC and all of the right have to say, Bernie is a force to
be reckoned with.
Bernie is not the force alone however, it's you that has all of the power, he is just the end of the sledgehammer trying to break down the walls that
have been so carefully built around you while you were sleeping. The American people have the voice, they have the power, and no one candidate will
save them from everything. There will always be concession, compromise and failures on promises, and anyone who thinks differently is delusional. We
still have the power to speak up, to march into Philadelphia and shout at the top of our lungs that we no longer support those at the top telling us
what to do while picking our pockets, the question is, are we really ready for the revolution?
I hope so, but if not, i hope you enjoy your pot full of water.
