Questions You Should be Asking the World Around You
Why do I like Bernie? Well for one thing, Bernie stands to gain nothing by being elected President. He’s in there to help Americans. Helping people help each other to make things better as a team, that’s always a win win. The poor, the middle class, even the wealthy, all benefit when the nation isn’t plagued by the stupid. It’s all about equitable solutions.
It isn’t about left vs right either. The left have been in power for eight years, but they misused that opportunity by not tackling income inequality. The right played the role of token obstructionist, and the left retaliated by pushing for the things which the right feared most (mainly homosexuality, marijuana, and illegal immigrants). Not surprisingly, both sides profited from war. (Libya, Egypt, Syria, Ukraine, China, Russia, Yemen, Iran.) What America was left with is conflict.
They didn’t cure the disease, they treated the symptoms. They thrive in conflict, that’s their business.
You might have read my posts about Hillary and thought, “well this guy must hate Hillary, look at all the things he said about her!” The truth is I don’t. I just don’t like her track record of mishandling responsibilities.
Then you look at Bernie Sanders, a man who isn’t raking in millions upon millions of dollars from lobbyists. He has consistently fought for the poor, the middle class, and minorities. He wants students to get the education they need without having to take out insane loans. He has put his gifts to good use.
He’s a secular Jew who agrees with Pope Francis. That doesn’t sound like much to most but that’s actually a pretty big thing. You can’t get any more neutral than that.
When the poor are not unhappy, there are no clashes with law. When the middle class are proud to help the poor, that drives society towards the positive. When the wealthy provide opportunities for the middle class, they generate more revenue. More money, more opportunities, it creates stability.
When you’ve got stability, homosexuality, drugs, and immigrants aren’t used as salvos to drive political conflict. You’re given the space and the breathing room to figure out fair and responsible solutions that benefit all parties equitably. At least, that’s the way I see it.
The only problem left I suppose is war. The biggest problem on the planet.
Writing is all about finding the courage to write. And courage is all about realizing that some things are more important than fear.
