List Rules Vote up the events and policies you think would have come to pass if Bernie Sanders had been elected.
Unfortunately, when it comes to U.S. politics, no time turners or do-overs exist, so citizens can only dream of what America would look like if Bernie Sanders were president. For a couple of years it appeared Sanders might be the last great hope for keeping America from falling by the wayside. But now that Trump holds office and leans into his Bond villain schtick all too well, one can only wonder, "what if Bernie Sanders was president?" It’s entirely possible a Sanders presidency would have been met with stalwart Republicans blocking his every move, but you would probably feel slightly more at ease than you do about potential nuclear war.
Though it's difficult to pinpoint exactly what President Bernie Sanders' policies would have looked like, his brief run suggests he would have essentially done the opposite of President Trump; he would definitely be stringing more than two sentences together that actually made sense. To throw salt in the wound, he seems like a politician you can trust, maybe even a politician you can share a beer with before he espoused about the necessity for universal healthcare - that’s the kind of president you want. What if Bernie Sanders was president right now? How would you feel? It wouldn’t matter because you could go to the doctor, and wouldn’t have to worry about being drafted because your leader sent an incendiary tweet while at Mar-A-Lago.
