Though he is not American, Isaksen said he still actively follows U. politics because of the influence the country has on the rest of the world."Bernie Sanders is a democratic socialist, and I happen to live in a democratic socialist country," Isaksen said."I believe that you Americans also deserve well-spent money, also known by Republicans as 'free stuff.'"Although Isaksen has flirted with some Bernie Singles members, he said he mainly uses the site to make friends with fellow Sanders supporters.Nathan Bradham, another Bernie Singles member, said he has supported Sanders since he first announced his candidacy, and he found Bernie Singles through the Bernie Sanders Dank Meme Singles Facebook page.
Bernard "Bernie" Sanders (born September 8, 1941) is an American politician, serving as the junior United States Senator from Vermont since 2007. Sanders' campaign against Hillary Clinton for the party's 2016 Presidential nomination raised more money in small, individual contributions than any other in American history, and helped Sanders to rise to international recognition.
Sanders became the ranking minority member on the Senate Budget Committee in January 2015; he had previously served for two years as chair of the Senate Veterans' Affairs Committee.
Since his election to the House in 1991, he has caucused with the Democratic Party, which has entitled him to committee assignments and at times given Democrats a majority.
This was the only time in Sanders' career that he publicly identified as a Democrat, and he has since announced he will return to the Senate as an independent.
Sanders was born and raised in the Brooklyn borough of New York and graduated from the University of Chicago in 1964.
While a student he was an active civil rights protest organizer for the Congress of Racial Equality and the Student Nonviolent Coordinating Committee. As an independent, he was elected mayor of Burlington—Vermont's most populous city—in 1981, where he was reelected three times.
After settling in Vermont in 1968, Sanders ran unsuccessful third-party campaigns for governor and U. In 1990 he was elected to represent Vermont's at-large congressional district in the U. House of Representatives, where he co-founded the Congressional Progressive Caucus in 1991. In 2012, he was reelected with 71% of the popular vote.
He served as a congressman for 16 years before being elected to the U. Polls indicate that he is among the senators most popular with their constituents, ranking third in 2014 and first in both 20.
Many millennials are supporting Bernie Sanders this election season, and now there is a place for them to meet: Bernie Singles.com, a dating site for young liberals who are looking to "feel the Bern."ASU political science sophomore Colten Caudle created the site a few weeks ago after getting the idea from Bernie Sanders Dank Meme Singles and Bernie Sanders Dank Meme Stash, which are two popular Facebook pages for Bernie Sanders supporters.
"I made a post joking about making an actual dating website to speed up matches," Caudle wrote in an email.
"After seeing tons of actual interest, I took on the project."Caudle wrote that he met his current girlfriend through the Bernie Sanders Dank Meme Singles Facebook group, and she became one of his biggest supporters throughout the process of creating the site."She was a major motivation for me to take on the project, so that others could connect the way we did," Caudle wrote.
