This is the biggest reason I will most likely vote for Bernie. Every single issue he goes on about, you can find videos of hime going on about 50 years ago. The guy has been fighting for gay rights, women’s rights, workers’ rights, rights for non-whites, for healthcare, and for an economic system that benefits everyone for 50 years. His message hasn’t changed, he hasn’t been bought out by a corporation or a foreign government.
The thing is, I can see how/why some people voted for Trump. The political correctness *is* out of hand, when you can be accused of a hate crime for referring to someone who clearly appears male as “him”. When you make shitty remakes of classic films with all-female casts, just because. When men’s lives can be ruined by unfounded accusations, because the culture is that men are guilty if an accustaion is made. Also, the government is corrupt as shit.
Trump said he’d drain the swamp. Trump said he’d surround himself with the best and brightest. So, if you BELIEVED what he told you, I could see why you may have voted for him.
The thing is, he’s a liar. Many of us could see that. I don’t know how reasonable people can’t see it now:
He didn’t drain the swamp. For the most part, he appointed people who were either unqualified but gave him money (like Sondland) or people with a direct interest in gutting an agency (like DeVos). He chose an EXXON CEO for Secretary of State for Christ’s sake.
Even in the few instances he did choose someone qualified, he either fired them or quit. I have the utmost respect for James Mattis, and I appluaded that appointment. Mattis ended up leaving, because he coudln’t convice Trump that doing whatever China and Russia want us to do is a bad idea.
Trump repeatedly promised he’d investigate and lock up Hillary. That didn’t happen.
Trump said he’d build a wall. He didn’t.
Trump said Mexico would pay for the wall. Mexico laughed in our faces.
Trump ragged Obama for taking vacations, and has taken mroe vacations than any President.
Imagine what republicans would have done if Barrack Obama had suggested that the US cozy up to Vladamir Putin and Kim Jong Un. They would have labeled Obama a Communist. But that’s exactly what Trump has done.
The United States President has literally, on video, been laughed at by other world leaders at MULTIPLE summits. He has actually, literally, made the US the laughing stock of the world, and somehow most republicans still defend him.
Sorry, that got way longer than I planned.
TL;DR – I support Bernie, because he is fighting for the same thigns he’s been fighting for for 50 years, anmd I actually believe him when he says he’ll do those things.
