There is no book that’s been more inspirational for me than The Lorax. There is no politician that’s ever inspired me more than Bernie Sanders. So when Saturday Night Live made a joke about Bernie Sanders being “The Human Lorax,” you can imagine just how inspired I was. At that moment, I knew that I would have to make something like this.
If you’ve not heard of him, Bernie Sanders is a senator from Vermont who has spent his life in politics standing up for the middle class and the working poor, struggling mightily to ensure the rich and powerful people and corporations in this country pay their fair share, and don't gain excessive control of our political process.
I’ve never known another politician who not only claims to share my values so closely, but also has such a clear record of honesty and sincerity. You may not believe in all of the things he says, but you know that he certainly does. He clearly does not say things just to get elected, he says them because he believes them to be true, and he believes them to be important for the good of America and all of its citizens.
I agree with everything Bernie has to say, and I believe that the policies he is promoting will make America a happier, healthier place, with more security, more freedom and more prosperity, enjoyed together by more people. And I’m not the only one who has been inspired. When he started his campaign he was widely dismissed as a radical without any hope of victory. Not any more. His campaign has now received more contributions from more people than any in history.
So, if you haven’t already, please visit berniesanders.com/issues and read what he has to say. Or watch a speech or an interview. If you like what he’s saying, please consider supporting him, even if it’s just with a few bucks.
