I am very proud of how the left has become more excepted and doing so well in the polls.

My first vote was back in 1992 for Jerry Brown. Back in my childhood I loved Jessie Jackson and Jimmy Carter.
I voted for Clinton / Gore in 1992.
I don't want to post who I voted for in 1996 and 2000.
In 2004 I was a soul mate with Dennis Kucinich but supported Howard Dean.
In 2008 Barack Obama
This year I am thrilled to support Bernie Sanders.

I am very proud that the "unpopular left" that I have been a lifelong member of has finally become mainstream. Bernie Sanders has made a case against the DLC and has given the frontrunner Hillary Clinton some great competition. I doubt any of the GOP will do as well against Hillary Clinton as Bernie Sanders has done.

SO rejoice, leftist! We are on the cusp of a political revolution. We have the youth. We have the issues. And we have the passion.

Peace and Low Stress.
