You definitely sound like a fan. The thing that I appreciate most about Bernie is this:
During one of the debates he had with Hillary he said (in so many words): “If you want to reform government, there will no other reforms until you take big money out of politics.”
No other candidate that I’ve seen, left or right, has ever said that the way he did, so explicitly, and without reservation or hesitation. That is why I support Bernie Sanders.
So I’m #stillsanders, too.
And as to forgiveness, well, I’ve forgiven them. Not for them, but for me. I forgave them so that I can let them go and focus on the positive changes I can make to the party, and to political discourse, in general.
