see? This is why fundamentalism is such a bad idea. I totally get where you would dislike the notion of an "old white man" in the white house. Especially after the colored one and now a strong female candidate.
By all accounts Bernie should not exist. Really, if anyone came up to me and said "the capricious old gods of Greece are pulling our leg again" I would look at Bernie and have no problem believing in that.
But here he is. The candidate who has a PROVEN track record of really caring and practicing what he preaches (pun intended). The one candidate who would go out of his way to do the right thing. The only candidate who actually, demonstrably knows what that is. Doing the right thing and sticking to it.
And he might not win only because he is an old white man. Because he is judged, by a large group of you guys, on his age, color/race and sex/gender.
The staggering mountain of irony behind this should blow your mind.
If he loses and the candidate that wins turns out to fuck you over even more then you are fucked now you know who to blame and why they are to blame. Don't be one of them. Give Bernie a chance. He IS your best option.
All of the above obviously makes me a regressive sexist by the 'logic' of Clinton supporters.
I refuse to support a candidate solely on their gender or their ethnicity; Instead I support them based upon their convictions and their track record. To do otherwise is to be part of the problem.
