Are you Berning Yet?

Have you heard of Bernie Sanders yet? If not I suggest you remove your head underneath that rock you’ve been allowing it to live. Now let me make this clear, I’m a Hillary 2016’er but I can’t ignore the force that is Bernie Sanders. I’ve actually been a fan of long before he ever sought to run for President, he won my heart when I first saw him advocate free college and shining a light on the hardships that student loans in the country have created. One of the reasons I love this man, is his unrelenting consistency, I have still yet to find him flip flopping like most politicians on social matters or bills; which is rare(insert prayer emoji here).

This man is starting a revolution amongst my generation, and its inspiring to see them get excited about politics again. I’ve been waiting for them to come to the span side for some time. To see how he’s able to captivate republicans and democrats as well as the stragglers aka independents all at once. I haven’t seen this since Obama and its pretty awesome that I get too witness this twice in my life time, crossing my fingers for 3x but I won’t be to impractical.

But I digress if you’re on the fence about why Politics, voting and knowing what going on in your country matters take a look at Bernie Sanders. He doesn’t have any of that mucky politician stain you usually run away from and blame your naivety or lack of interest in whats going on in our country. He makes you pay attention because there’s nothing but genuine concern in hiss voice and frustration in his eyes something you also happens to feel when this country crosses your mind.

You know like most Americans know that if we could just change the way Government is run, and legislation is made that America could truly be amazing. You too believe that equal rights are jet equal rights that EVERYONE deserves, you believe that Marriage isn’t  a privilege anymore when it’s something you can do at a drive thru in Vegas and find it ridiculous that there are people still trying to claim it as theirs instead of everyone’s personal decision that they make me with one other person. Unless you plan on moving into every married couples home, their lives are none of your business.

You too believe that the fact the Women are still paid less than Men is absolutely archaic and needs to change immediately. You believe that the fact that Men who truly believe that they are entitled to tell a Woman what she’s allowed to do with her own body but won’t supply her with food stamps is a complete joke. You believe that having to go into debt just to educate yourself and become a more valuable citizen makes no sense, you believe that healthcare is important and caring about our veterans is pretty much common sense considering the fact that they risked their lives for our country.

If you believe this sounds like you but you can’t seem to get with the Hillary Clinton 2016 train, you might wanna catch the Bernie Sanders train, it’s still at the station but is probably taking off soon.
