Today is Super Tuesday, or as some call, "Fat Tuesday" where 12 states all have their primary elections.
Alabama, Arkansas, Colorado (with caucuses), Georgia, Massachusetts, Minnesota (with caucuses), Oklahoma, Tennessee, Texas, Vermont, and Virginia.
1) Bernie has raised a grassroots campaign from the ground up, all without accepting money from the big banks, rather relying on donations from actual people.
2) Bernie has a long standing record of trying to help people such as his time as Mayor of Burlington where he successfully sued the cable companies for lower rates for customers, and saved a local waterfront from being paved over (and turned it into a community hub).
3) As a member of the House, he voted against the resolutions authorizing the use of force against Iraq in 1991 and 2002, and opposed the 2003 invasion of Iraq. Hillary voted to invade.
4) Wealth inequality has reached an all time peak where currently the richest 1% hold 38% of all privately held wealth in the United States, while the richest 5% hold over 61%. Bernie has made his lifetime career about speaking out and fighting against this, and would have the actual power to try to change this if he takes the presidency.
Why not Hillary?
1) Hillary Clinton has taken numerous donations from the big banks she supposedly will remain neutral to.
2) The Republicans are like a dog with a bone, and they will hound out the words "Ben Ghazi" and "e-mail scandal" over and over, regardless of any substantial facts.
3) Hillary has been eager to repeatedly point out that she would be the first female president, essentially pandering for votes. Obama was never one to campaign on being "the first black president" or Bernie on being "the first Jewish president". It's in bad taste, and it isn't a real qualification.
4) Her husband having been president before is clearly an advantage in this election phase, but having her in the presidency would have her inherit his enemies and baggage.
5) The system is unfairly rigged in her favor. A Superdelegate is a person who is a delegate to the national nominating convention but who is not “bound” to a candidate, meaning they may vote for anyone they wish, regardless of the outcome of the popular vote in the states they represent. Hillary currently has 452 superdelegate votes to Sanders' 19. These numbers mean Clinton had already gotten 15 percent of the delegates needed for party nomination— two months before any voting has begun. That isn't democratic at all.
Moreover, how hilarious would it be if she lost to two relatively unknowns twice in a row?
He's voting for Bernie, too!
(But don't tell you know who)
