Why I Love Bernie Sanders

Comments from his fans during the 2020 campaign:

Diane B. - "I love his wild messy gray hair, his frumpy clothes, his worn shoes, his Brooklyn accent...why? Because I overwhelming love his honesty, his integrity, his straightforwardness, his compassion, his knowledge, his empathy and I really really love his big heart that beats even better now over this last month."

Patricia G. - "A once in a lifetime politician, I'm glad he was in my lifetime."

Dolores C. R. - "So true. He cares about us. No one else cares that much. I love Bernie."

I honestly love him so much he makes me cry. CRY, ya'll. He makes my heart ache.

I think Bernie speaks to the best part of us where compassion and empathy lives. Connecting with this part of ourselves is an emotional experience. I believe this is part of the reason so many of us feel so strongly about him. When we feel compassion for others we inadvertently feel it for ourselves as well and most of us could use a little more self-compassion!

This Senior Loves Bernie

Kathy M. Tells How Bernie Has Taken Over Her Life

"I have no life anymore. All my time is going to Bernie. If I'm not phone banking, I'm playing around with Bernie groups on facebook, if I'm not on Bernie groups, I am watching the Young Turks or Tom Hartmann or Robert Reich. If I'm not watching them, I am working with my local Bernie office. If I'm not working with my local Bernie office, I am gathering various memes and information bits to make kits to share to use as resources for all of us.

I stayed up and watched the whole caucus in Iowa.

And In between all that, I have to make time to babysit my grandson for 8 hours 3 days a week. I have no clean clothes. I don't have time to cook. I'm living on Cheerios, canned soup and Pizza Hut.

And I am loving every minute of it. I'll bet I'm not the only one."

I Love Bernie Sanders

"Do you ever just stare into the stars and think, I love Bernie Sanders."

      Homeplace Series - I hear where you are coming from, but don't think it is just a fantasy. When all European countries have universal health care, why can't we? Of course, the answer is because we've allowed insurance companies and drug companies to make big bucks on the health of our citizens. I'm sorry, but the gravy train is over if we can get Sanders into the presidency.

      It won't happen overnight, but we have to try, and we have to have a goal. Settling for the same old politics as usual, means that Americans continue to suffer just so big business can get rich.

      Bernie tells us, those of a progressive inclination, all the things we want to hear. It is a Wish List far exceeding any Christmas. I love to hear him share these wonderful, delightful fantasies. This is why he has so much appeal to the young, as well. The world he seeks is that of the idealist, without concern for the pragmatic realities he has faced all his life. 'Feel the Bern' while you can, and enjoy every moment. One day, in the not too distant future, this idyllic adventure will end. We need more 'good feelings' these days. Thanks to Bernie for providing them. What fun! ;-)
