    I won't vote for someone in the Presidential race because of, or in resistance to, their age, race, religion, or gender. That's far too limited in scope for me. As long as they are generally healthy, there is so much more that concerns me. What do I look at? 1) Is the candidate experienced? 2) Is the candidate steadfast? 3) Has their track-record been consistently on the right side of history concerning racism, climate change, economics, foreign policy, etc throughout their political career or have they been wishy-washy depending on what would get them votes? 4) Are they capable of igniting that same "right side of history" fire in voters regardless of their age, race, gender, religion, culture, etc? 5) Are they willing to go the extra mile even when it's tough? 6) Are they indebted to, or cultivate relationships with, Big Corporations, Lobbyists, Big Banks, and Super PACS to a large degree? 7) Do they care about, and encourage, grass-roots efforts by the average citizen and reinforcing the power of the people regardless of if it supports themselves? 8) Do they have the psychological and emotional disposition and stability necessary? The answer to these main questions are what's important to me. For myself, the answer was Bernie Sanders in 2016 and it's still Bernie Sanders today.

    Socialism means death. It’s what killed his family in the holocaust and it’s what fuels the racist Democrat ( KKK) party

    Liberals have an unfocused ideology when it comes to solving societal problems. If the remedy is simple and the masses will accept it and a political advantage for their advocates will be achieved, e.g., gun confiscation for mass shootings as the only solution will be articulated. In my opinion there needs to be specific solutions to specific societal problems and all remedies should be considered.

    Back in 2003, Bernie Sanders was educating high school students on how to change politics.
