Feeling the Bern
I've never been very talkative about my political views, but this 2016 Presidential election is too important not to discuss my concerns and share support. Our country is being divided and stifled on so many levels socially, racially, economically, globally, and the next President will be pivotal in changing our lives for the better or worse. Reading through his campaign issues, solutions, and history, Senator Bernie Sanders is the only guiding and truthful nominee for president. He has fought for and stuck true to his convictions throughout the decades, and he will continue to do so as he cannot be bought by corporations. This means Bernie is fighting purely for the 99% of us Americans who are struggling and ready for change.
As the election draws nearer, it is imperative that Americans understand the importance and stand together behind a leader who is looking out for our best interests and safety. It truly disheartens me when Bernie support is reciprocated with "he's too idealistic," because I believe we deserve to be taken care of by a peaceful leader like him who believes in equal rights and the well-being of our world. We deserve a leader who will take on Wall Street, has the foresight to prevent conflict, cares about our planet, but mostly, a leader who inspires us to never give up on a better life.
I crocheted a little Bernie to endorse my support, and now he'll be available for purchase at leesasaur.storenvy.com where I'll be donating a portion of the proceeds to the Bernie Sanders campaign.
The GOP has gone to such extreme views, that it truly feel like it's Siths versus Jedis. More than ever our country needs a leader, and I urge you to not fall to the dark side. If the Siths win, we will continue to struggle, and lose the advancement of human rights and equality we fought these past decades for (that is, until the planet becomes engulfed by the fossil fuel toxins). But if the Jedis win, we have a chance to strengthen our nation's quality of life, and transform a more sustainable future. I encourage you to listen to what Bernie Sanders has to say, and be apart of the political revolution.
