I have watched many speeches by Bernie Sanders on Youtube. His strong views and convictions are based on his core values, which I identify to be:
a) Honesty and integrity. He speaks the truth about what is good for America and what is bad.
b) Justice and fairness. He is strong about social and economic justice and believes in treating people fairly regardless of race, gender, sexual orientation and age.
c) Courage. He has the courage to come forward and serve the nation, and to put forward an agenda of what needs to be done to change the current system of governance.
d) Positive. For each of the problems that is faced in America, he puts forward a solution. This reflects his positive attitude.
e) Public service. He believes in public service and that publicly elected officials should serve the people, rather than enrich themselves.
These are the same core values that have guided me throughout the years. I can identify with the values of Bernie Sanders.
I wish him all the best in overcoming the big obstacles to be elected as President of the United States and to solve the daunting challenges faced by the country.
