Bernie Sanders doesn’t practice organized religion. He comes from a Jewish background but he is secular in his beliefs. He has nothing against religion but just doesn’t personally use it in his life. He doesn’t have many hobbies as work is his passion.
Bernie Sanders is a self-proclaimed ‘Democratic Socialist’ and is the only socialist member of Congress. He ran for the 2016 Presidential Election and gained a ton of support from young Democrats. He aimed to make college free and break up big banking. He wants to launch universal healthcare and tax the wealthier citizens. He is also against unnecessary wars.
Bernie was born in September making him a Virgo.
Some of his hobbies include, working and working. “He has no hobbies. He works. He doesn’t take time off. Bernie doesn’t even eat lunch. The idea of building a fire and reading a book and going on vacation, that’s not something he does”. Being a part of politics isn’t just a job for Bernie, it’s his passion. He also enjoys some leisure activities like shooting basketballs (here he is shooting some hoops) and reading. He might now have to add “bird whisperer” to his list of hobbies. Here’s a video of a bird landing on the podium while Bernie Sanders was talking: Video.
He Feels the Bern when he is working….which is all the time. He’s been seen shooting some hoops before so maybe he likes playing basketball.
Sanders admits he can’t carry a tune, but that didn’t stop him from becoming a recording artist. He recorded his first song in 1987 with the former White Crow Studios. Owner Todd Lockwood wanted to get to know the mayor at the time more, so decided to ask Bernie if he’d be willing. “The very first thing he said when I sat down in his office was, ‘I have to admit to you, right up front, that this appeals to my ego’ — and we both laughed,”. Listen below to hear Bernie singing!
Sanders was ahead of his time in supporting gay rights. In 1983, as mayor of Burlington, he signed a Gay Pride Day proclamation calling it a civil rights issue. He was one of just 67 members in the House of Representatives to vote against the Defense of Marriage Act, a politically tough decision he prides himself on.
“There is far too little discussion in Washington about the collapse of the middle class, almost no discussion at all about the incredible income inequality and wealth inequality in this country, and the fact that we’re moving toward an oligarch form of society.”
