This weekends caucus in Washington State proved that the people want Bernie Sanders! Why we want Bernie is so simple, I really don’t think I need to get into detail. My issue is still with the way the electoral credits work in this country. Why should a state with a smaller population have more say than the majority of voters? Then I hear stories about polling places being shut down or people being turned away to feel like their vote doesn’t matter. Then we see videos of Trump rallies where people are being assaulted and the crowd is cheering on the attack! What is happening to this once great country? Have we all become so completely detached from our humanity that this has become acceptable behavior?
I can honestly say that right now I’m afraid! I fear for the future that awaits my children if we continue to allow such a small percentage of people continue to impoverish the entire nation for their own personal profit. How long can we really afford to have a majority of the population on some form of assistance program, when the real problem is allowing corporations to pay employees low wages at the same time as paying stockholders and CEO’s millions and even billions! The fact that this country doesn’t have a federal minimum wage that is actually a living wage.
