The American political system is rotten to the core. Donald Trump is evidence of this as he is the prime example of the American bourgeoise: Aggressively capitalist, woefully ignorant, casually racist, and made his fortune off the exploitation of the working class. Massive upheaval is needed to reprogram the United States from an enemy of the working class across the world, to a force for it.
In my lifetime, all I have seen is a government that purposely misleads its people into wars in the name of "freedom" to really expand the American Empire. I remember the news reports from 2003, showing the faces of thousands of young, misled men, who were told they were "defending" their country by invading another one 7,000 miles away. Never did they show the faces of the thousands of Iraqis the United States killed in the name of "democracy". I remember in 2008 watching the stock market crash. For me this would eventually lead to my family's home being foreclosed on, the same as millions of other Americans at this time. I remember hearing hundreds of stories of people's lives being ruined by banks and corporations, while the heads of those banks and corporations were granted bailouts and bonuses for their exploitation of the American people.
Bernie Sanders is a self-described Democratic Socialist. For some in this country, that makes him essentially Stalin. For others (many on this page) that means he does not go far enough. The reality is that yes, American politics need a massive upheaval. I may hold more extreme views than Sanders but I accept that we need pragmatic solutions to move the United States to the left, and people can become truly informed of the problems facing the working class. I believe Bernie Sanders becoming President in 2020 would be the best possible (realistic) thing to happen to this country. Sanders is well-versed on Socialism and probably holds more extreme views than he has publicly, but he understands there is a limit to what the general American population will be able to accept and understand at the current time. That is why I plan on voting for Bernie in 2020.
