|WHY I VOTED FOR BERNIE SANDERS
|We vote for our own best interests and we should.
The way I see it is - if the people around me were safer, less stressed, less threatened with loses and illnesses; if they could sleep better, not burdened with unpayable loans - they’d be kinder and definitely happier. Then, that would actually be better for me too.
I don’t give advice because I recognize that everyone has a valuable point of view. We all matter.
I am just one tree in the forest, wanting to belong. At heart, I am a conservative which is why I think progressively (maybe eliminating unnecessary steps). In order to go to Mars, you don’t aim at where Mars is now, you aim at where it will be. Sanders is where we will be.
What if we hadn’t succumbed to pressure, allowed or voted for the Iraq war?
How much quality schooling could 3 trillion dollars have bought us?
What other wishes of ours could have been fulfilled by now? What would you like to see improved?

I can survive. I am in the top 5% income bracket. Even at 37% tax, plus CA tax, plus 10% agent’s fee there is enough that I can do alright.
Even at a higher tax rate for me and others, it won’t stay that way.
It’s diabolical to let working people die from opioids in so obvious a condition of despair.
Other countries have handled the health crisis, why can’t we?
Some day we will have Medicare for All. To rebuild, it is easier to tear down your whole house than do it room by room. I’ve experienced that. You have to move out anyway.
Some day. . . is not very kind for millions of people.
