Okay, I’ll admit it – I’m a big, fat, left-wing feminist. I have known this for quite some time, now, and I’m very much okay with it. I am pro LGBTQ* rights, pro abortion, pro marijuana legalization, pro Black Lives Matter, pro $15 minimum wage. When I was younger, my mother told me that everybody was created equal. It has become central to my belief system. Anymore I have learned that the media is biased, full of sensationalized bullshit, and lately it seems to be worse than I ever remember it being.
At this point you may be wondering Who does she want to be president? Hillary? Well, should my first pick not receive the nomination, yes, I would gladly take Clinton over any of the air-brained, racist, sexist republican candidates. BERNIE SANDERS, man. Bernie Fucking Sanders essentially stands for every single one of my political beliefs. He is the man I want to be president. He will help truly make the country a better place to live. What I enjoy about Bernie’s message more than any other candidate is that he wants to put a stop to corporations buying votes in congress. Having a female president would be amazing, and maybe in my mind, I’ll just pretend that Bernie Sanders is Bernice Sanders, a feisty grandmother after my own heart. That is how much I love Bernie. I feel the Bern. I yearn for the Bern (to be in The Oval Office).
If you haven’t decided where your loyalties lie in regard to the presidential election, do your research, and keep Bernie in your mind. His political campaign has accepted zero donations from big businesses and corporations, but from hundreds of thousands of working class individuals who have the desire to finally get ahead in the world. Personally, I have been struggling to make ends meet, living paycheck to paycheck, and I know I won’t get anywhere farther in life with dick-head Trump running the country. With Bernie, I have hope.
