As much as I'd like to see a woman president, I'm voting for Bernie

To The Daily Sun,

Bernie Sanders is the best candidate for president.

I visited his website to see his position on various issues, particularly the environment. It was divided into five parts: Agriculture, Animal Welfare, Climate Change, Energy Policy, and Environmental Protection, all described in detail. I chose the Environment because if it fails to sustain us, nothing else matters.

On Hillary Clinton's website, there was nothing titled Environment, but there was Climate Warming, with a plan for massive amounts of solar collectors. Very impressive, but simplistic compared to the Sanders' version.

The Republican candidates seem to have renewed their membership in the Flat Earth Society. Business as usual, trumping environment.

Much as I'd like to see a woman elected president, I'm voting for Bernie on Tuesday, Feb. 9.
