Be Nice, It’s contagious.

If there is a positive thing that I have seen come out of the current presidential race, it has to do with the attitude of the people who are supporting Bernie Sanders.  For the first time in a long time, people who are posting on social media are generally posting positive remarks.  People are looking for a positive message and they are repeating a positive message.  People are getting fed up with the popularity contest that politics has become.  They are also looking for a person they could believe in and not just pick the lesser of two evils.  I still do not know if his campaign has long term staying power, but the longer he stays in the greater the following he is going to get.  For the first time in a very long time, maybe even ever, I am really impressed with someone who is running for President.  You really get the feeling he is doing it for the right reasons, not just for the power and prestige, but because he wants to make a different in the lives of ordinary people who have been forgotten due to the vast amounts of money that is being thrown around.  I don’t know how far he will get but I like the precedent he is setting with talking about issues, not just talking badly about everyone around them and using shock value to win points.  Eventually the shock value wears down and you become just another idiot yelling into a microphone.  If you talk about the issues, you could never go wrong.  So many others could learn that lesson.
