FEEL THE BERN
Oh, I feel the Bern, do you? I feel it in my heart, body, and soul. Bernie Sanders speaks to the modern millennial, in my opinion, even more than Barack Obama did. And as polls would show, more than Hillary Clinton, too.
The Iowa Caucus was last week and not only did THE BERN and Hillary tie, he won the millennial vote HANDS DOWN. Did you know 83% of people under 30 voted for Bernie? Yeah, that’s quite a majority. Bernie’s views on social, economic and political issues are resonating HARD CORE. There’s a really good reason why too….
Bernie’s religion is Judaism, but that doesn’t stray him far from the spirituality train. In fact, I strongly urge you to check out this article from the Huffington Post, on his thoughts about spirituality.
"My Spirituality Is That We Are All in This Together" –Bernie Sanders
DING, DING, DING. Oneness; the belief that we are all connected by our souls. This is spirituality at its finest. No one is better than anyone, and every action has a direct consequence.
"I believe that, as a human being, the pain that one person feels, if we have children who are hungry in America, if we have elderly people who can't afford their prescription drugs, you know what, that impacts you, that impacts me," –Bernie Sanders
Is my man Bernie Sanders an empath just like myself? This explains a lot. Empaths feel WAY more deeply than the average soul. When someone is hurting, you hurt too.
Bernie Sanders is against big banks and big establishments. He is against higher taxes for the middle class, against student loan debt and of course, one of my favorites, against the criminalization of marijuana.
When I tell anti-Bernie lovers that I feel the BERN, I continue to get the same responses; 'He can never win an election without backing from the Super PACs; He’s a senile old man; He’ll never beat Hillary.' Ahh, my friend, never say never. Take a look at the Iowa Caucus results, and Hillary, you better be scared.
Why I particularly love Bernie Sanders
I love Bernie. Let me count the ways….
- When Bernie speaks, he speaks with compassion. In fact, I am very in-tuned with my feelings and I am blessed that I have the superpower of determining who is genuine and who is not. Bernie is VERY genuine. I’ve heard some people say that this is just an act, to win over voters. But Bernie hasn’t changed in character one bit. In fact, he is the longest running Independent politician in Congress. The people of Vermont loved him for so long, and now all of America is falling in love with him too.
- Bernie is my favorite type of person, THE UNDERDOG. I relate SOOOO much with this. I’m sure I’m not the only person on this planet that has been told, ‘YOU CAN’T DO THIS, YOU CAN’T DO THAT.’ All I have to say is, WATCH ME. I see miracles happen every single day. Don’t believe him, JUST WATCH.
- I mentioned earlier, HIS SPIRITUALITY. My oh my, there’s nothing more beautiful than a man who is CONSCIOUS, COMPASSIONATE, and ETHICAL. How many politicians can you think of that fit that criteria? He has said many, many, times; white collar criminals walk freely every single day, while those who get caught with marijuana can be imprisoned for life. SOMETHING JUST DOESN’T ADD UP, AND BERNIE IS SICK AND TIRED OF THIS SHIT (and frankly, so am I).
Don’t talk about Mr. Sanders that way...
I do vow to not jump down non-Bernie lovers’ throats, but I have to tell you, I feel HELLA strongly about him and his campaign. I am not particularly political except during Presidential campaigns (something I’m working on) but when it comes to the leader of the free world, this is some really important stuff. So keep your eyes and ears open, get involved, get educated, and get INSPIRED. This is YOUR future. But in my opinion, if you want something you never had, you must do something you’ve never done…..
Bernie is the man. That is all.
