GeekNights Listener endorses Sanders

Sanders is my pick for the 2020 democratic candidate. Warren is my second pick of the remaining candidates and I would welcome here as VP or in a cabinet spot. My main reasons in no particular order:

  1. He is the most likely to defeat Donald Trump in a general election
  2. He is the strongest supporter of Medicare for All, without a public option, which a recent Yale study showed saves both lives and money
  3. He supports forgiving all student debt and free college tuition for public universities, without means-testing
  4. He demonstrated in Nevada (and to a lesser extent, the polls for South Carolina) that he can perform well in a diverse electorate, which will be key in securing the general election.

Feel free to share your reasons you support (or don’t support!) him in this thread as well, healthy debate encouraged.
