In 2016, I went to vote (registered Green Party) for president. This should’ve been an easy decision… it was Hilary vs. Trump.
My issue was, I wanted goddamn Bernie Sanders on that ballot. He stood for everything I cared for. Free healthcare for all Americans, among other things.
But, I had a choice between two evils, and I really didn’t want to vote for Hillary.
I left DUTCHESS community college (my intro to chemistry course) to vote. I got to veterans park in Montgomery, and I got my ballot and I stood in the ballot box… for what seemed like forever.
I voted for Sean Patrick Maloney. And other democrats… but when it came to President… I just couldn’t knowingly vote for Hillary. But my mom’s voice in my head, “choose Hillary”
So after what seemed forever, I bubbled in Hillary and hoped for the best.
The next morning I woke up and realized, Trump won.
This time, I am not going to fight with myself. This time, I don’t care what, I’m writing in Bernie Sanders.
Bernie is what we need.
He has great plans, and I think aside from foreign policy, he is pretty clear in what he wants to do.
So this year, I will be working for the Sanders campaign. Going out and getting signatures.
Let’s change the status quo.
