Senator Bernie Sanders (I-VT) energized the Democratic base and the nation with his populist movement. Now, he’s thrown his backing squarely behind Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton – and he has a dire warning for those tempted to write him in or make a protest vote for a third party.
If you sit this election out and Trump wins by a few votes, many people are going to be dealing with that reality for their entire lives.

Sanders is absolutely right. This is not the election to make a throwaway vote. While it might be very easy for many white Americans to say that they could deal with four years of Trump, millions of Latino, black, and Muslim Americans cannot say the same. There is far too much at risk this election. Our Republic as we know it is at stake, and it’s up to you to do the right thing for your country.
