I’m Scared for My Home State
Today is Michigan’s primary election. The one that could boost Joe Biden so far ahead, it could be impossible for Bernie to catch up. Or, it could give Bernie the boost he needs to keep the election neck and neck between him and Biden.
In 2016, Bernie won Michigan. It was one of the biggest wins in his campaign in 2016. It’s also the state that turned red when Hilary won the nomination.
The last time Michigan turned red was in 1988 when George H.W. Bush was running for president.
Let me make something clear. I’m not hoping Michigan goes red again. I’d be sick to my stomach if it did that. I’m hoping the other states help Bernie get enough votes he can get ahead of Biden.
And, of course, I’m hoping Bernie wins Michigan once again.
Then he has a better chance of winning the Democratic nomination.
There’s no guarantee Bernie’s going to win Michigan again this year. I can hope, but I’m not so sure.
This time, I’m worried
Michigan isn’t the only state having an election today, but it is the state with the most delegates. Whoever wins the election can have as many as 125 delegates.
As of this article, Biden leads Bernie by almost 100 delegates. The thought of Biden taking the nomination from Bernie when Bernie’s been steadily rising until last week scares me.
It scares me because I believe Biden is the worst choice for a Democratic nominee. The way people are lapping him up reminds me all too well of the 2016 elections; how people went crazy to make sure Hilary got the nomination over Bernie.
Democrats like Biden because he’s considered a safe choice, even though he’s too conservative for the times we live in. Young people everywhere are screaming at the government to shut up and listen to us. If America is going to survive, we need radical change.
But instead of listening, the Democrats are pushing Biden in front of us, trying to gaslight us into believing Biden is a better choice than Bernie.
Is it 2016 all over again?
On Super Tuesday, Biden out of nowhere started surging in the polls, taking away Bernie’s lead he’d had so far in the election.
Since then, there’s been a fear that Biden will end up the Democratic nominee. Biden, the most unenthusiastic candidate in the primaries so far. Bloomberg was more energetic than Biden!
Social media is filled with Creepy Joe memes. Other memes show a genuine disdain for the potential nominee.
It was oddly familiar with the hate against Hilary in 2016, yet she won the nomination. And then she lost to Trump.
And then there are the scandals surrounding Hunter Biden, Joe’s little boy. Hunter Biden’s actions played a role in Trump’s impeachment proceedings. How do we know Little Biden’s efforts won’t come back to haunt Joe?
It reminds me of the email scandal of 2016. Hilary lost the 2016 presidential election.
If Biden wins the nomination, no one wins the election
No matter what way angle you view the election, it’s going to be a joke.
There’s the more concerned angle Politico shows. Both Trump and Biden could have dementia, and no one’s doing anything about it. I’ve seen claims of Biden having dementia all week on Twitter, and Politico is the first article I’ve seen talking about it.
Or, if you’re a Millennial with a dark sense of humor, it’s a creepy game of Would You Rather. Either way, it ends with a candidate that doesn’t like women.
The issues a lot of us care about aren’t going to change. If Biden wins the nomination, nothing will happen, regardless of who wins the election.
I’m still hoping for Bernie
I believe Bernie has the best chance to beat Trump. Not only beat Trump but to bring actual change in the country.
We could see a change in the issues we care about most, like health care and lowering the cost of education. Maybe we’ll see schools encouraging trades, too!
Maybe we could see wages increasing and schools treating their teachers better!
Maybe paid maternity leave will be a thing! And women can finally choose what’s right for her body without anyone telling her otherwise!
We could see a massive push for caring for the planet before the damage becomes irreversible.
Are Bernie’s changes radical? I don’t think they are, but centrists do.
However, the centrists are aging. They’re not going to last when the Millennials turn 70. So why not give us the change we’ve been screaming for since Obama?
Until Wednesday, all we can do is wait
I voted absentee, so I won’t be waiting in line at the polls. But for those that will, good luck. As long as you’re at the voting station before they close, they have to let you vote.
To Washington, Wisconsin, Idaho, and Missouri, I wish you good luck too. May the odds be ever in Bernie’s favor.
Plus, wouldn’t it be great if Bernie made Elizabeth Warren his running mate? They’d be unstoppable at that point!
