Remember when I used to write a blog? I’ve been too busy lately, but sometimes I feel compelled…
From the beginning of this circus of an election, I have been a Bernie Sanders supporter. Whether you were for him or not, you had to respect him, if for no other reason than the fact that he was willing to speak the truth about what is seriously wrong in our country. Even the Republicans said he is honest, and they’re not even sure what honesty is. But now that he conceded to his stolen election and is behind Hillary, this is how I feel regarding voting in November:
If Bernie is a big enough person to get behind Hillary after what was done to him (and made known thanks to the Russians LOL), along with the Obamas (who I love) and Elizabeth Warren, I feel that it’s the right thing to do for the country. Bernie is not stupid, he’s been in politics for many years and knows it’s dirty. I understand resisting voting for Hillary, but we are living in historical times right now and I do not want to be on the side that voted for Hitler….oops, I meant Trump. And whether you like it or not, if you vote independently, it won’t help anyone. This isn’t the election to vote on your own personal principles. As Noam Chomsky said, “Hold your nose and vote Democrat.” There’s too much at stake…and I don’t think the “Great Wall of China” is going to be built. Have you heard Donald Trump say “China”? It’s hilarious.

Here’s the most important thing for me; Last night during Obama’s speech at the DNC (who I now refer to as Dirty Nasty C…Ts), he recognized that the Sanders supporters were the ones who have brought real change to this election, therefore changing the platform of the Democratic Party. WE made a difference! Not Hillary’s supporters, not Trump’s supporters, BERNIE’S supporters! I am proud of that. He started a revolution and we made history people! That’s exciting. I can totally tell my grandkids if I ever adopt a kid and they grow up and have a kid…which most likely won’t happen, but I can tell the people in my retirement home! The one fully equipped with golf carts, spas and illegal immigrant workers.
By the way, I’ve always felt that Bernie’s struggle first started when he claimed himself a Democratic socialist. As soon as the capitalism-loving Americans heard the word “socialist,” they put their hands over their ears and stopped listening to anything he said. I believe if he didn’t say that, he would be wiping the floors with Donald Trump’s wig right now. It’s sad and disheartening when people don’t educate themselves. But let’s not get started on education…that’s a whole other problem.
Thank you to Bernie and all my fellow Bernie supporters. We know we were right and we made a difference! :)
