Why I’m Voting for Bernie Sanders

Healthcare- Universal Healthcare is not a new idea. Over 50 countries have Universal Healthcare. This is a good thing, I promise.

Kindness– Bernie has never posted a negative ad. This, more than anything, really reaches to my heart.

The Middle Class– I see this argument all the time; if you want more money, you should get a better job. If you want a better job, you should have gone to college. If you want to go to a good college, you should have done more in high school…

So let me address those issues going backwards. To be involved in high school and do well, you have to live in a wealthy, good community (this isn’t a rule, just a majority). You have to not come from a lower-class, black neighborhood. You have to come from a good family that cares about your education. You have to have access to technology at home. The list goes on and on. This shouldn’t be the case. Stop making it so people have to be wealthy to succeed! Education should be for all. And the government should be invested in the future of their country- the youth.

To go to a good college, you have to have money. And lots of it. You have to be prepared to take out loans and submit application after application for scholarships. You have to rely on your parents to be wealthy and well-off enough to help you pay for school. You have to be ready to invest in a school that still may not get you a good job (I went to a wonderful school and still see my friends struggle with finding a full-time job. It’s just the reality). You have to acknowledge that you will be living in debt and paying off loans for years and years to come. Why is this the case in America when the rest of the world seems to have it figured out? The youth are the future- the government should be investing in them by offering free education for all, so we can make our country a better place.

If you want a good job, you need nice clothes, transportation, prior experience… all while you’re working off that debt from college. You’ll submit job application after job application in a job market that isn’t exactly thriving. And minimum wage just isn’t cutting it with the cost of living- it’s not balancing out. The future of this country can’t afford this country. It’s the sad truth.

We need a government that will invest in our communities. Invest in our schools. Invest in our youth. Invest in our education. Invest in our soldiers. Invest in the people who make up this country! Bernie Sanders is the answer to getting us on the same page as the rest of the world, who seem to have figured this out already.

Corruption- Bernie can’t be bought. There’s a reason the news mostly talks about Trump and Clinton- it’s because they’re paying for it. And there’s a reason Bernie, who is one of the most talked about candidates everywhere BUT the news, isn’t receiving any media attention. Because the companies and corporations that are bought by Trump and Clinton are SCARED. Because they know a country with Bernie as President means change. The news coverage of this election is proof of the corruption in politics, wall street, and the media.

Not to the mention the “convenient” DNC scandal, right as Bernie hit a milestone in his campaign. But Bernie, the only Democratic candidate to report the breach in the firewall, was also the only one investigated and frozen out from his information (which was immediately put to an end when Bernie threatened to sue, as the DNC never would have won). Considering that the chair of the DNC, Debbie Wasserman Schultz, formerly worked for Clinton and is a supporter… It’s time to put these charades to an end. Bernie would put a stop to this, because he won’t be bought.

Honesty- Unlike Clinton, Bernie has been on the same page for years and years. He doesn’t conveniently change opinions based on what’s popular and what will gain him more votes. Because he knows the people. And he speaks for the people. He is the most honest politician I’ve ever seen, and he will stand by what he preaches.

The People- Most importantly, I’m voting for Bernie Sanders because I want America to belong to the people once more. And that is what Bernie Sanders stands for. This election is about us! Not about politicians!

If you’ve never been involved in politics before, or have been involved with politics for years, I encourage you to GET INVOLVED! Politics and laws influence our every day lives. They change lives. They can make your life better or worse. Vote for what and who will make America better. And that’s Bernie Sanders!

If you’re in Iowa today, I encourage you to get out there and VOTE! Grab your friends, family, neighbors… EVERYONE YOU CAN. This is so important. We can win this!
