I majored in English and yet I love technology and design. I am currently a stay-at-home mom but I've become pretty concerned about the state of our world, with the threats posted by Climate Change, corporations that act as if they can buy the government they want, and the resulting dysfunction because our politicians don't represent the best interests of people but rather that of profiteering corporations. I am really attracted to what Bernie has to say but I don't see him offering workable solutions, given our politican reality. Plus, as vibrant as he is, I don't think he would have the stamina to be our president.
