Why Americans Should Support Bernie Sanders, A Letter

-Sean Lee

Dear United States Citizen,

Every once in a while someone comes along who wants to change the world for the better and they are in the right place at the right time. That someone is Bernie Sanders, the place is the United States, and the time is now. Bernie needs our help. We all have busy lives, I get it. I have a busy life too, but we need to take some time out of our busy lives to make a difference. If we seriously want a better country for ourselves, and the majority of Americans, we need to help Bernie get elected. We need to volunteer, we need to spread his message, and we need to inform people about why they should vote for Bernie.

Change doesn't always come quickly. But if we educate ourselves and others about the issues Bernie is talking about, we can change America for the better.

There was a time in our nation's history when the rest of the world thought our democracy would fail. Well, it hasn't yet, but it will if we don't do something about big money in politics. Not 20 years from now, not even 10, we have to do something now.

Bernie Sanders is educating the American people as well as trying to become our next president. We have been fed lies, little and big, by so many politicians who make promises they don't keep. Politicians who will say whatever it takes to get elected. Once they are in office they will do whatever their big money donors want. Why? Because, if they don't, big money will not fund their reelection.

What is the goal of the one percent? To remain in the one percent. Why have the 99% not risen up? Because of a little carrot dangled in front of us, becoming a member of the one percent. A candidate has risen above big money politics and greed; his name is Bernie Sanders. Will you join Bernie in an attempt to make a difference? We must, like Bernie, care more about our fellow Americans than money. I believe Bernie Sanders is the richest person running for president, because of how he lives his life and what he stands for. Bernie is counting on all of us to join his revolution to take this country back from the 1%.
