At the end of April break, my family and I attended a Bernie Sanders rally. It was a most awe-inspiring and invigorating event.
Senator Sanders continually shows that he is the best candidate in the race. His beliefs on drugs, guns, education and immigration match very closely that of my family.
The rally was very crowded, and I was sure that he was going to win Connecticut. Unfortunately, he only won Rhode Island. At the rally, Senator Sanders talked about many of today’s most important issues, such as those that I mentioned above.
If Bernie is elected, he will make college free and marijuana legal. Before you get nasty about that, marijuana (commonly known as “weed”) is one of the biggest reasons that African-Americans are incarcerated today. It is really not that much worse than smoking cigarettes, and it is useless to overflow our prisons because of it. Also, he has proposed a tax on carbon to improve the environment. He recognizes that the economy is collapsing, and that all the money flows to the top 1% of citizens.
A common opinion is that Bernie Sanders could not beat Trump in a general election, therefore people are inclined towards Hillary Clinton. However, this not the case. According to www.realclearpolitics.com, Bernie would beat Trump by a landslide.
I believe that Senator Sanders is the best choice in the upcoming election, and I hope that this article has encouraged you to reconsider.
