Sanders Supporters, I'm Sorry [View all]

I voted for Sanders when the primaries came to my state (actually the caucus in Utah) but I never had much passion for him. I liked his message but I felt fairly neutral on him. Being busy, I never paid much attention to his message. I had a fair understanding what he stood for but was fine with Hillary or Bernie. I see now why you love him but more importantly his message. I understand that almost none of you are blindly following him and that his message is more important than the man. I think a few of Sanders' supporters are misguided or angry at the wrong people but I see that almost all had good intentions by backing him. Tonight I see that he doesn't only have a great message but that he is a man of honor and integrity. I have made threads and posts that were anti-Sanders and that questions his motivations and his supporters in the past and for that I apologize. He's a great man and we are lucky that someone like him came along to influence our politics.
