Hi, folks! I’ve been reading a lot of blogs and essays on FB about how I am going to scuttle Sec’y. Clinton’s chances for winning the White House if I vote for Sen. Sanders. By my vote, you say, I will end up placing a fascist there by default instead.
I can’t speak for all of Sen. Sanders’ supporters, but I do know that many of us support him because we aspire to more than what the DNC offers us. You want us to settle for just another version of the status quo, and the status quo is slowly strangling us to death.
We are tired of settling and we want to breathe again, which is why we are voting for the Democratic Socialist. Please don’t try to shame us into voting against our consciences. Have some respect for our freedom of conscience. I know you do. Please show it.
And the notion that Sen. Sanders won’t get anything done because he’s an outsider? Many said the same thing about President Obama. He’s done pretty well. I hope after this note, we can still be friends. Thank you.
