OPINION: Our country's future is brighter under a Sanders presidency

By ENRIQUE E. FIGUEROA

I was a political appointee in the second Clinton administration. It was an honor and privilege to serve our country in such a senior position, and I forever will be thankful and loyal to President Bill Clinton.

I was a supporter of Hillary Clinton in 2008, as well as during the beginning of 2015, but I no longer can be her supporter. Why? Integrity, money, electability and Sen. Bernie Sanders. This has been a quite difficult decision for me, but it is the right decision, and one that I hope others make as well.

"I don't like her, I don't trust her, but I got to vote for her," is what I hear from my good friends and fellow Clinton voters. Until now, I felt I had to vote for her because of my loyalty to her husband and to the "establishment" that I was a part of during my service in our nation's capital, but given that I champion integrity to my students, I cannot do what my fellow voters may do.

1. More from this piece

Finally, it should be clear that the Latino vote is not disproportionately in Clinton's camp, even though the media may want us to believe such an assertion. Large numbers of Latinos supported Sanders in Nevada, Colorado, Michigan, Illinois and Arizona.

So, it is with some trepidation out of respect and some fear from my good friends and Clinton supporters that I wrote this piece, but it is one that I had to write. Our country's future is brighter under a Sanders' presidency

6. No Rocket Science Required Here... Exponentially Worse Under The Clinton Banner One Would Think?
