At the risk of pissing off new followers, I'm going to share my stance on why I can't support ANY of the females running for the Democrat nominee in 2020 (even though I am female, and would love to be alive for the first female US President). 1/8
None of the female candidates have the proven history of fighting truth to power. Our country is in dire need of structural government change. We need a President with a proven history of fighting the powers that be. By 'powers that be', I'm including @TheDemocrats insiders 2/8
who have shown their cowardice by not starting an #ImpeachmentInquiry immediately after the Mueller Report was released. By 'powers that be', I'm including the media superstars (e.g. @Maddow) who have shown their lack of will to call a #Fascist when he presents himself 3/8
By 'powers that be', I'm including the health insurance and big pharma industries who are clearly shoving their talking points to the media and current candidates who have shifted their previously stated position on #MedicareForAll (e.g. Harris and Warren). Without a history 4/8
of proven independence from the current powers in government, we have no hope of shifting away from oligarchy and back to democracy. The only female politician at this moment I could support for President isn't old enough to run and hasn't been tested (@AOC) so I'm 5/8
choosing to support the one and only candidate with a proven history of fighting truth to power

#BernieSanders

All other candidates will be compared to him on every issue and every vote they've taken. I value integrity and proven principles above all else.

Bernie is 6/8
not perfect, but he has the proven record of fighting for social, economic and racial justice I value, and has shown the political courage required to do what is needed to fix the structural problems we have.

I will do everything in my power to help him get elected. 7/8
When he screws up, I will call him out on it. I'm not a "BernieBro" or a cult member; but I do vote my values, and only my values.
