I was raised by conservatives, later drifted to libertarian views in my adolescence. 2016 is the first election I can vote in and I was originally planning on voting for Rand Paul, but now I'm leaning towards Bernie because I feel like he could implicate a socialist system in America and actually make it work unlike Obama or Hillary. Bernie wants a truly free America, where everyone is treated the same, and no one gets special privileges. A government that doesn't intrude on its people unlike the government that most of the Republicans want to keep. People would be able to actually smoke a joint and not rot in prison. Electing Bernie would be an awesome "fuck you" to the corporations and billionaires like the Koch brothers. Bernie Sanders has my first vote and my support.

Bernie Sanders is exactly what America needs in a President. He is honest, hardworking, leadership material. His campaign is funded by regular people, not big money, so you know who he's held accountable to - us. He wants the public to fund elections, so you can guarantee that the cycles will be much shorter and the TV coverage less like a reality show. He wants to overturn Citizens United and break up the big banks. He wants to stop the oil companies from building a dirty oil pipeline when we're supposed to instead be working away from fossil fuels and toward clean energy. He understands the youth. He disdains the same shameful truths that I do about our existence on this planet in inequality and strife. He's another old white man, sure, but he's actually conscious of black issues (he marched with MLK and has been fighting for civil rights his whole life), women's issues, family issues, and he knows what it's like to grow up poor.

Bernie Sanders possesses a cornucopia of traits backed by his long running honesty, sincerity and humanness. He's human!
