a few good reasons, in my view:
1.I believe in Universal Healthcare, for one. (I think it should be a human right, globally, in fact)
2.I also think education should be free. I think paying for degrees is basically a scam and a con -if libraries are free, then so should be education -it could ALL go online, as I see it. Bernie supports making public colleges and universities free (for those who get in), which I think is spot on.
(Education is basically just moving information from some people's brains to others' (through conversations, instruction, reading books, online); I actually think all books should be online, free, for everyone, too, like the free courses that are already available, as well as -of course- Wikipedia. Expensive textbooks could be free, accessible online, in my book. You agree, right?
3.I think we should keep billionaires from buying our elections.
4.Society would benefit greatly if corporations responsibly paid their share of taxes.
5. (well paying) jobs from improving U.S. infrastructure.
6. He's not Republican, not Hillary, and not Trump.
BS over b.s.!
7. He's the most liberal (which is a good thing, in my opinion (except for abortion). He's got the right idea. You know where he stands. He's not a flip flopper, and doesn't waffle. He's had the same views forever. He supports a healthy debate, a national conversation, and puts the "social" in socialism, which is what a healthy democracy should be all about.
Tomorrow night is the democratic debate, 5:30pm.
I'll be at the Bernie party at Ohmega Salvage, in Berkeley.
He strikes me as ornery, grumpy, a bit crotchety, lol
but that's not really all that bad, and possibly what we need, anyway.
fire in his belly, as they say.
