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

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.
