I’m a Bernie Sanders Supporter … Now What?

When I jumped head first into the political pond, which is actually more of an infested slimy swamp, I had few opinions. I caught wind of this senator from Vermont and he made me feel optimistic and since I was so taken aback by this guy, all along I assumed that majority of the American people would eventually jump on this Bernie train with me and we’d all ride off into the sunset…

Instead, I find myself wishing I lived in Australia where I could comfortably, with no fear of being shot by a stranger, be popping popcorn into my mouth while this madness unfolds. Never in my wildest dreams did I think I’d ever feel heartbroken over a political process.

I do feel like Bernie Sanders was treated unfairly and I do not care if you think I’m simply being a sore loser.

Harvard released a study that confirmed that while Bernie Sanders was out making history the majority of the republican nominees were the ones getting the coverage. Five Republican contenders—‘Trump, Bush, Cruz, Rubio, and Carson—each had more news coverage than Sanders during the invisible primary. Clinton got three times more coverage than he did.

I’ve watched Bernie Sanders speeches get cut off mid-sentence for commercial breaks – while he is talking to a stadium with record breaking attendance. Is that not news?

Meanwhile, Google suggests that perhaps you’re looking to find information regarding Hillary Clinton India rather than Hillary Clinton Indictment. Which is really ironic, considering if you dig into the public demographics of the Google searches, the number of people who search for Hillary Clinton India are significantly less than the other.

Go ahead and try it for yourselves.

I searched on Google first because it’s synced to my phone with Android which is also connected to my Chrome browser – I mean – who even uses Yahoo! anymore?

CNN quickly published an article explaining the logic. Basically, Google is super smart and the other search engines (every single one) do not meet Google’s level of technical filtering abilities. Or, just throwing this out there, it could be that Time Warner owns CNN and also happens to be a top contributor to Hillary Clinton’s campaign – investing over $600,000. But I’m no expert, just a crazy Bernie supporter.

Whether the process was rigged or fair and square, we now have to deal with the outcome. I do not want to place a vote for Hillary Clinton and I can say with confidence that I will never place a vote for Donald Trump. I’m left here hoping there is still another option. I trust the guy so I’ll wait for the convention, see what he has to say and go from there.

What I do know is that the revolution is not stopping with this election. We’ve got a progressive army ready to run for local and state government with these radical ideas in their pockets. Less than 24 hours after U.S. Sen. Bernie Sanders called on his supporters to run for office at the local or state level, nearly 6,700 people have signed up.

For those solely depending on mainstream media, you may have missed that part of Bernie’s plan.

The point is change can come about, but it only comes about when millions of people are actively involved in political struggle; the billionaires may have the money, but we have the people.

For now… I’m stickin’ with the #StillSanders crowd.

  1. And if enough people agree with you and opt out of voting for president, we’re looking at four years of Trump. Don’t believe me? Take a hard look at the campaign of 2000.

    I agree with Sanders. I’m so far to the left politically that I don’t talk politics for fear of alienating people. And I would have totally supported him had he clinched the nomination. I hope a lot of his supporters do go into local politics.

    But, I’m going with Hillary now. Because the alternative is too scary to contemplate. And she’s not as bad as you think. (I hope! Most politicians are awful. We’re at the least objectionable choice at this point.)

    1. I never once said or implied that I am not going to vote. I said I do not want to vote for Hillary Clinton, but I will never vote for Donald Trump. I’m going to listen to what Bernie Sanders says during and after the convention and go from there.
