Here’s what musicians think about Bernie Sanders’ campaign suspension
Bernie Sanders just suspended his presidential campaign. This essentially paves the way for Joe Biden to grab the Democratic nomination. That being said, musicians are expressing their concerns on social media.
While some are simply lamenting the fact that four more years of Donald Trump may be more likely, others are thanking Sanders for everything he has accomplished and attempted thus far.
Unfortunately, the Vermont senator suspended his campaign Wednesday. Sanders announced the news on Twitter.
Today I am suspending my campaign. But while the campaign ends, the struggle for justice continues on.
He addressed the public in a stream that aired at 11:45 a.m. EST. The full video can be seen here.
Musicians, actors and regular joes all endorsed Sanders. Many supported his stances on the economy, healthcare, and environmentalism, hoping he would usher in a political revolution for the betterment of the United States.
Now, with Bernie Sanders suspending his campaign, many of his supporters are expressing their grief on social media. We Are The In Crowd's Rob Chianelli, Periphery's Jake Bowen and Handguns' Brandon Pagano have all chimed in.
While Sanders suspending his presidential campaign is heartbreaking, it is still important to register to vote and participate in democracy in order to create change. Sanders is still working to gather delegates and will stay on the ballots of remaining states.
"I will stay on the ballot in all remaining states and continue to gather delegates... We must continue working to assemble as many delegates as possible at the Democratic Convention, where we will be able to exert significant functions."
Many of Sanders supporters, including Every Time I Die's Keith Buckley, grandson and the Wonder Years' Dan Campbell understand that participating in the election is still the only way to force real, positive change on the establishment.
Please remember that just like Sanders' campaign, things can start small and snowball into something much greater. Vote in your local elections, appoint delegates that you want to represent you and those you care about. With Sanders out, it may seem pointless to vote. However, that is the only way to let your voice be heard and support the ideas that you want to be implemented in the future.
