Okay, here's #MyBernieStory:
I went to college because you HAD to have a degree to make it in the world. $80k later, I have to live with my Mom, because my $1,200 rent payment is going to my loans instead. I can't default because my Mom co-signed. I WILL NOT destroy her credit!(1
...Plus it's impossible to declare bancruptcy anyways. I've worked for a non-profit for ~8 years hoping to get some of my loans forgiven. Turns out 99% who try that fail. So, with interest rates at 14% and ALWAYS rising, I will NEVER pay them off. (2
And that's not for lack of trying. I work a full time job on weekdays, cater as a 2nd on weekends and housesit for all my coworkers and friends consistently for extra cash in my "spare time." I am using my grandparents old car (blessed) & would be completely HOSED without it. (3
It's hard to imagine a way out. It's hard to "pull yourself up by the bootstraps" when you work, sometimes literally, every waking moment and STILL your loans don't go down.

It's been 8 years.

How can I imagine a house of my own? A family of my own? (4
...Hell, a CAR of my own! It's a joke to even think about being able to retire. And you know how people try to comfort me? By telling me
"There are thousands of people just like you. THOUSANDS of people with the same amount of debt. It's just how it is."

...Shockingly, these words do NOT comfort me. They do NOT bring me hope.

They bring me RAGE... (When I have the energy to rage)

But mostly they bring me despair. How long can somebody work their life away with literally nothing to show for it? Nothing to look forward to? (6

Along came #BernieSanders!

He introduced me to the first hope I've had in YEARS!

And you know what?? He's fucking ANGRY, and FED UP!!!!

It's REFRESHING to see somebody who's not complacent with the way these PREDATORS have been running this world!!! (7
He sees through the corporate governments greed. 🧐
He sees through the lobbyists' agendas. 🧐
He sees through Wall Street literally profiting off my struggling with student loans. 🧐He even sees through the corporate media propaganda brainwashing us all to STAY COMPLACENT! (8
Bernie has been creating a freaking modern marvel of a movement since 2016, but has been building the foundations for it his WHOLE LIFE and political career. He had the biggest grassroots army of people -- People who are in fact JUST LIKE ME -- just as everybody said 🤭🤭🤭 (9
Turns out this army of people are ALSO in dispair (GO FIGURE) and have been taken advantage of by the system for WAY too long! They too have been exploited by the greedy, soulless people profiteering on making them HELPLESS and HOPELESS by running them into the ground (10
AND turns out --


Odds are, if you are NOT angry, you most likely have been beaten into complacency and hopelessness,


There's a 1% chance you are the one profiteering off this dispair

...IF by chance you are the 1% reading this, I hope you know that


We are awake, and we are energized and


And with all of your FUCKERY towards this movement, we see too that you're SCARED AS SHIT!Don't think we can't smell your fear...
Nothing is going to stop #Bernie2020 because

It's not just him you have to defeat anymore.

It's #NotMeUs

He has been our voice so far.

He has awoken us all. And has given us HOPE and LIGHT and FIRE!!!

#FeelTheFUCKINBern 🔥

His #Revolution is well underway.

NOW in order to take him on, you have to take US on!

I am one drop in the #MyBernieStory. But there are SO MANY!
