I like Bernie Sanders for President because he is an experienced lawmaker and seems to be honest. He is the longest serving Independent in the United States Senate who is running for President as a democrat. He is gaining popularity daily and is within ten points needed for New Hampshire. Where he speaks they have to find larger places because he is gaining popularity. It must be because he has the right message from the first time he opens his mouth. Apparently he has very radical ideas.
He simply says that he is going to tell the truth. The truth is that for the past 40 years, the middle class has been disappearing. There has been a huge transfer of wealth from these families to the one tenth of one percent of wealthiest people in the world. The people of this country has said enough is enough our government and our country belong to all of us and not to just the wealthiest people in America. Is he just going to represent the older men vote because he is an older man?
Being from Vermont, he might be able to lure young voters in because he has a very active internet presence and has many friends on Facebook more than any other in the Senate. Go to Sanders.Senare.Gov where you can see how aggressive he is reaching out for young people. He wants to tap into the idealism of young people and what they are saying is that we should lead the world in transforming our energy system in dealing with climate change. The Republicans got us into all these wars and forgot to figure out how to pay for them and all they suggest now is new wars.
In Germany and many other countries a college education is free. Bernie Sanders has already introduced legislation to make all public colleges and universities in this country tuition free. We are the wealthiest country in the history of the world. America is not sustainable when so much wealth lies in the hands of a few. He wants to redistribute the wealth to the middle class families. In reference to ISIS and the problems in the Middle East. Let Saudi Arabia the place that has the third richest Army in the world, the biggest defense budget there police their own region. We need to stop supplying the world with weapons.
Bernie wants the trade agreements halted and for manufacturing and jobs to remain in this country.
After all the trade agreements in the past there were still unresolved issues like child labor laws, environmental laws of which there are no laws that these countries follow. The trade pact with 11 other nations , almost a $500 billion dollar thing involving 500 million workers overseas, is an enormous thing to police. Keep our manufacturing in America and forget about that enormous nightmare. So far he sounds like my new President.
