Feel the Bern

Is voting a duty or a privilege?  I consider it both.  Nothing deters me from casting my ballot.  Political apathy concerns me greatly.  It baffles me how people can be so laissez faire when it comes to something as crucial as government.  Elections at every level affect all aspects of our daily lives.  How can anyone complain when they don’t make their voice heard?!  Individuals who ask questions, do the research, weight their options, and most importantly– show up and VOTE– earn my respect regardless of their candidate of choice.

I voted for Bernie Sanders today.

Super Tuesday

With that being said I’ll keep this short and sweet.  Republicans staunchly oppose the issues about which I am most passionate.  If you can’t say something nice…

Bernie’s beliefs align closely with mine.  More so than those of Hillary Clinton.  Unlike some who identify with democrats I do not despise Hillary.  I think she’s qualified and would be a fine president.  It’s just that I prefer Bernie.  Both have their pros and cons.  Either way I’ll be voting for the democratic candidate in the presidential election and that person will have my total support.

Overall I find myself disillusioned with the entire political process.  Words like ‘establishment’ and ‘revolution’ have been tossed around this election.  Money and machines.  Clearly much of the population feels this way too.  The fact that Bernie has come this far and Donald Trump looks to be the Republican front runner speaks volumes– the American people demand change.

With infinite love, gratitude, and respect,

About Cocktails With Hemingway

I'm blunt and opinionated. Virtually everything I say or do is a contradiction but I'm not a hypocrite. I never hesitate to speak my mind and never fail to leave an impression wherever I go. You love me, you hate me, but you'll never forget me.
