Bernie believes in the things he is saying, his entire political life he’s stood up for Left Wing issues and goals. He has CONSISTENTLY voted his conscience of matters that matter to his constituency and himself. Unlike most politicians, he doesn’t back away from his actual views when they are politically inconvenient. Sander’s entire political career has featured him aggressively championing political issues on the Left, unapologetically defending the progressive agenda and clearly defining himself as outside of the mainstream political process. Most politicians tack toward their base in the Primary to win the nomination and come back Center for the general, Bernie stays Bernie, and even if you don’t AGREE with him, you have to admire a politician who is not COMPLETELY full of shit.
