Why Sanders Lost my Vote and Trump Never had a Chance to Gain it


In the beginning, I was a Bernie fan through and through. I loved his ideas especially on health care. But as time went on, Bernie began to sound monotonous, almost militant in his message – not that much different than Trump but on the opposite side of the spectrum.

Trump has never done anything for anyone but himself. Until I have proof, I will have no choice but to believe that Trump never paid taxes, doesn’t give to charities, never held public office, doesn’t have a clue of how to be a father and cannot take criticism, which is a virtue that comes with being an adult.

Humans are complex beings. We sway from one emotion to the other. One day we crave one thing then something else the next. The world is not one sided – so I don’t believe that policies should be one sided. I chose her because I believed that she possessed the ability to govern closer to the middle than her opponents – That she had a better chance at governing in a way so that at least all parties would be somewhat represented.

Clearly, I didn’t get what I wanted. However, I have the feeling that neither did anyone else.
