Who Do I Vote For?

I still feel the Bern.

Who Do I Vote For?
Root House Studio

As I filled out my vote-by-mail ballot I had no problem voting, until all that was left was president. I struggle because I don't truly support any presidential candidate. I was a Bernie Sanders supporter from day 1 when he announced his candidacy. How am I expected to now vote for someone who I do not feel happy with?

My MacBook case had a Bernie sticker that faded because of its everyday use. My Students For Bernie button getting more loose. I felt the Bern in my heart. Sanders started something. He started a conversation amongst youth. Young people actually started to join the conversation that for so long, they ignored.

Some may try to have me vote for Jill Stein, but why? Because her platform is similar to Sanders? No. I can't feel confident voting for a president who would be stuck because of the two party majority system if she were to win. As a candidate for the Green Party Stein would face 100% opposition and all votes would be gridlocked.

All these thoughts don't help me. I still have no idea who I am voting for, for president. Bernie Sanders, I am sorry. I want you as my president. The Bern will always be strong in me. I had the opportunity to witness an underdog make it to the end. Who would have thought? The revolution Bernie Sanders started will always be something that will stick with us millennials. We are a voice that will cause the world to shake. We will shout when we are ignored. We will do what we need to, to help the world grow. Bernie Sanders this is for you.
