I am a strong, life long Democrat. I intend to support

Bernie Sanders in the primary.

Why?

I support Bernie because of his stand up, progressive values and his stellar history of never wavering from his values.

Voting for him will demonstrate that the progressive movement is large and loud. Not some fringe, hippy element. We need our progressive values represented.

If Bernie's numbers are shockingly high then he will be able to leverage that into policy.

If Hillary is the nominee, then she can stand on the shoulders of the progressive movement knowing there are millions who support such values.

2. No matter who the nominee is

He/she will need the others supporters in the GE.

3. Not even an option to not vote for our nominee. I will work any way I can to

see that the Democtat is elected. I don't care what their name is.

4. The question isn't whether Sanders supporters will vote for Hillary in 2016...

 

But whether they will do so in 2020.

We do need progressive values represented.
