Donald Trump, Bernie Sanders, And Why The Youth Shall Win

Donald Trump, Bernie Sanders, And The November 2020 Election Prediction

Donald Trump is in the news often. I figure it’s time we chat about him. I believe that Bernie Sanders is going to demolish Donald Trump in the November 2020 USA election for president. Let me explain why!

As we approach the upcoming election in November, it will become more important to speak critically of the president and share opinions on his policies. Personally, I do not believe that now is the time for such conversation.

Now is the time for conversation about a better future rather than the current present.

Donald Trump is only as relevant as we make him.

If we want to defeat the demons in our world, a good place to begin might be to stop promoting every Tweet they send out.

Can you imagine if every single Tweet that you Tweeted made a 24/hr news cycle? Doesn’t it get even weirder when you think about how the common demographic for such a news cycle is elderly people?

I believe that Bernie Sanders is going to win in November, 2020, and it will not even be a contest.

Here’s an episode of the Beyond Homo Sapien Podcast where I breakdown why this is the case:

At the moment, the most important vote for any candidate is the vote for folks aged 18-30. At this time, as far as I can tell, Bernie Sanders seems to have captured that vote. There does not seem to be a close second place.

I’m not sure if anyone is really convinced that Joe Biden is a frontrunner. I have yet to meet a single person from my generation who talks about Joe Biden, let alone votes for him. Just about anyone I meet is going to pick Bernie Sanders over Donald Trump any day of the week.

An important distinction: if the election hypothetically happened today, I am not sure who would win. There are too many candidates for president at the moment. What I’m suggesting is that Bernie Sanders and Donald Trump will square off in the November, 2020, presidential election.

When their policies and rhetoric are matched head to head, the victor will be clear. As we found on this episode with Joe Rogan, when Bernie Sanders is given genuine time to speak, he crushes. He also manages to attract 10 million views over the course of three months. Personally, this interview convinced me to vote for Bernie. It is clear that this is an incredibly smart, talented, and kind hearted individual who certainly does not intend to lead us in the same direction as Stalin or Hitler. We would be lucky to have such a leader as Bernie Sanders.

At the moment, thankfully, the types of people who would vote for Bernie Sanders are in the overwhelming majority. We have already achieved victory. A majority of people in the USA all think, believe, and feel alike enough that such a political victory is quite possible. In fact, the only reason it would not happen is if we don’t vote.

Unfortunately, that is a real possibility! For whatever reason, Americans have trouble getting to the voting booths and practicing these “freedoms” we seem to love so much.

Imagine if your boss gave you a chance to change the ENTIRE rules of the game every few years? All you and your coworkers had to do was come together and decide amongst yourselves what you actually wanted.

Well, our “boss” kind’ve does.

In fact, the fact that people do not believe their vote “counts” is a big part of the problem.

Of course your vote counts.

That’s the whole point. It counts as much as you make it count. If YOU believe your vote doesn’t count, then it will not count.

If you believe that it does count, then you will behave and act accordingly.

I believe my vote counts.

That is why I am writing this blog post.

Bernie Sanders Will Crush Donald Trump In 2020

Prediction time: Bernie Sanders will win in a landslide victory against Donald Trump in the November, 2020, USA elections.

The result will be action towards the following three ends:

  1. Free medicare for all. At long last, Americans will get the healthcare system they voted for back in 2008 when Obama ran on a healthcare-based platform. People, the fact that we did not get free healthcare back in 2008-2012 is testimony to the bullshit system in which we live.
  2. Decreased student loan pressure. Bernie’s voter base is driven in large degree on the issue of student loan debt. At the moment, the student loan crisis is crippling many college students and making it difficult for them to have a decent quality of life. Of course, there are plenty of folks who are handling their student loans with ease. However, from what I have observed, they appear to be in the minority. If Bernie is elected, I believe we will see action on this direction given the amount of motivation.
  3. Legal marijuana. At long last, we will see cannabis legal at the federal level once again. With hope, we might see pardons and reparations for those imprisoned unjustly for using a healing plant that grows out of the earth.

Although Bernie Sanders’ platform heavily emphases the “Green New Deal”, I feel that this might end up being the least effective aspect of Bernie’s administration.

Why? Because ultimately the problem’s facing our environment are a global crisis. At this moment, we do not have a great solution for reversing the damage we have done to the environment. Although Bernie’s plan might help slow further decline, it will take a more entrepreneurial spirit to invent the solution that the world needs.

I believe that those changes combined with an overall more caring system of government will lead the United States to becoming a more entrepreneurial nation.

If folks don’t have to worry so much about healthcare and student loans, they’ll be more able to quit their 9-5 and start to freelance, open a business, or live a more alternative lifestyle. The USA already has an entrepreneurial spirit and such administrative changes would encourage people of my generation to take action. Finally, there could be a proper safety net to catch entrepreneurs who fail.

Here’s what most people miss: we WANT such a safety net to exist. When that safety net is combined with the entrepreneurial spirit of American youth, the world could change quickly. The innovations we need to reverse climate change would be invented. We could perhaps go even much further.

Bernie Sanders Is Not A Socialist

I think it’s time we acknowledge something related to this topic:

Bernie Sanders is not a socialist.

If you still feel that way, you obviously have not taken the time to google and read the definition of a “democratic socialist”. Spoiler alert: they’re two different things.

As Bernie has been saying for most of his life, he is a democratic socialist. He goes to great lengths to make this abundantly clear and has done so for years. If you still think he’s a socialist, you are simply not informed. Go hop on over to google and start to edgucamate yourself.

A democratic socialist believes that we should have some socialist systems but that such systems should be created as a result of a democratic process (aka voting). In other words: a democratic socialist thinks we should have a safety net and that the terms and conditions of aforementioned safety net should be voted on (and changed if necessary) by the people.

A regular socialist thinks that the government should control the safety net.

In fact, a democratic socialist and a socialist would probably disagree on many key points.

It’s essential that you understand the difference.

It is time that we learn to love our enemies and see them as ourselves.

Christ Consciousness and true empathy is about looking out for others. I believe wholeheartedly that Jesus Christ would have been a democratic socialist, or something similar. In fact, if you study the early church, you will find that they lived a very socialist existence. Jesus and his disciples didn’t seem to have jobs and they spent most of their day traveling around the countryside, talking with people. It is safe to assume that Jesus and his disciples may have benefited from some sort of social safety net. In their case, it was probably the care and hospitality of friends and a local network of an emerging church. In other words: they crashed at people’s houses.

In fact, if you study certain texts, you’ll find that Mary Magdelene was oftentimes the hostess for Jesus and his disciples. Although I do not believe that Jesus and Mary were a thing, I certainly think she played a crucial role in that social safety net. Oftentimes, it was her house where the disciples and Jesus would rest after a long day of teaching and healing.

If we are to live as Jesus lived, then should we not embrace a more democratic socialist president?

Why do we join ourselves with this embarrassing figure who only drags us further behind?

Let us join together in November, 2020, and vote correctly.
