Bernie Supporters

It is recent news that Bernie Sander, dropped out of the presidential election and before him and his base fall off the map, I want to look at his group of supporters and how they think. While they do nothing but talk about how evil and deranged trump supporters are, Bernie supporters also have some interesting quirks about them. Also, the way they think is very counter intuitive, especially for a group that considers themselves intellectual. In this post I will be looking at how I believe these ideologies are form, how they are used, and what the result is.

It’s important to note that this ideology of a Bernie supporter, started growing well before Bernie Sanders ever ran for office. One should note that one reason he was able to get a large base, so quickly is because in away his base was being formed for years. Most people who did well in high school with in the past twenty years, remembers how nothing but “college after high school was pushed.” There is nothing wrong with this notion of furthering your education, and I’m a big believer in this, yet there are cheaper ways to gain knowledge, with out going to college. There are some great jobs that do require degrees, but a lot of degrees are pretty much useless, like gender studies, philosophy, and art. Something interesting is when people are leaving high school, they are never mentioned trades. Anyway, what happens is someone goes through four years of high school and hears nothing but “go to college.” They work hard to get into the school of their dreams, only to find out they can’t afford it. But there is away…student loans! Finally, the young student finds away to pay for college, with the idea that they will be able to pay the loan back later, when they get their job. Medical and STEM fields need degrees but are in demand. Other studies, like dance therapy and feminist studies, are not in demand. Usually these people who pick this degree, learn that there are no jobs that require these weird degrees. They learn that the best they can do is get a job flipping burgers.  They learn that paying their debt off is much tougher than they ever thought, yet they think they are intellectual compared to everyone else. Bernie Sanders capitalized on this.

To understand a Bernie Supporter, we must first look at Bernie Sanders. He spent a lot of time in college but didn’t do anything with his career in politics. He didn’t pass any note worthy bills, and through out his career was always back communist dictators. Bernie Sanders campaign was based on handout and how moral communism was. Bernie is a multi-millionaire, but he’s for “the small guy.” Bernie was for gays, sex workers, and welfare, things which would of get someone shot is Soviet Russia. But his supporters bought into it, and he did have two very successful campaigns, he dropped out twice even though he had more backing than any other Democratic Candidate. But there where a few gems that came out of his group of supporters (I saved the best for last:)
