This Is For Anyone Who Is Against The #BernieOrBust Movement (Op-Ed)

This is for anyone who is against the ‪#‎BernieOrBust‬ movement.

This is for anyone who has ever used the phrase “guarantee a Trump presidency.”

This is for anyone who wants to unify the Democrats.

This is for anyone who thinks Hillary would be a good president.

This is for anyone who thinks Trump would be a good president.

This is for anyone who thinks ‘splitting the ticket’ should be a concern when I step into the voting booth to cast the most important ballot of my life.

 

Once again, my friend The Devout Atheist, wants to share some thoughts with the world:

You’re not blaming me. This isn’t my doing. I didn’t screw this system up, and I’m actively trying to fix it.

An honest guy is running, and I voted for him.
I rallied for him.
I donated to him, several times.
I’ve made t-shirts.
I’ve covered my vehicle in stickers.
I have never been so energized or excited about an election in my life, and I don’t expect to be for a long time to come.
I am a well informed voter, keeping myself abreast of the political climate, the economy, foreign policy, domestic policy, equal rights, workers rights, and every other political issue that I can possibly think of. I like to stay informed. I like to learn. I like to know that when I cast my vote, I am doing the absolute best for my country that I can. It’s the only power I have. I want to use it well.

So don’t talk to me like I don’t understand what voting for anybody but the main two party candidates can do to the system.

You make the mistake of thinking I don’t actually want to do that to your system.

You cannot complain about the system while turning your head away from the very thing that keeps the system going.

Voting for one of the main party candidates will result only in perpetuating the system. I have no interest in that. I’m stunned that you do.

I’m not casting a vote for Bernie Sanders because I want to shake up the system. I’m casting a vote for Bernie Sanders because I want to dismantle it.

I’m not casting a vote for Bernie Sanders to send a message to the DNC. I’m casting a vote for Bernie Sanders to send a message to the entire political system.

I’m not casting a vote for Bernie Sanders as a protest. I’m casting a vote for Bernie Sanders as a hope.

I’m not casting a vote for Bernie Sanders because I want free stuff. I’m casting a vote for Bernie Sanders because I want the stuff I’ve already paid for.

I’m not casting a vote for Bernie Sanders because I don’t like Hillary (although I don’t).
I’m voting for Bernie Sanders because I love him.
