Reasons why I’m voting for Bernie Sanders in the California Primary

1. For the climate & future generations.

2. Because I am voting FOR, not AGAINST.

3. Because Neoliberal policies have failed us & we need to build an alternative. Now.

4. Because Bernie is the strongest candidate to stand against Donald Trump in the general election.

5. Because Bernie stands up for voices that are marginalized & ignored, not because he has to, but because he knows they matter.

6. Because Bernie is calling to honor the treaties and respect the sovereign rights of Native Americans.

7. Because we desperately need a new approach to foreign policy.

Exhibit A: Iraq War

Exhibit B: Haiti

Exhibit C: Libya & its aftereffects — including the coup in Mali

Exhibit D: Honduras

8. Because Bernie proves you don’t need corporate financing to win.

9. Because the US prison system is one of the greatest human rights travesties in the world, and we need to dismantle the prison industrial complex.

10. Because Bernie brings out the best in people. Bernie brings people together.
