Senator Bernie Sanders is one of the Democratic candidates running for Presidency for the United States for the 2016 election. In 2006, he was elected U.S senate after 16 years of Vermont’s sole man in the House Of Representatives. For 35 years, Bernie Sanders has fought tirelessly for working families and gender equality. Regardless of the many candidates running for the presidency, Bernie Sanders is the fittest candidate running with many well thought out ideas involving economic inequality, women’s right, and immigration due to the fact that it provides people with more opportunities.

One major political issue candidates discuss is economic inequality, also known as income inequality. Economic inequality refers to how the money

Together Bernie and Hillary will work together to pass the Paycheck Fairness Act to end wage discrimination. Along with that, Clinton will work to promote pay transparency across the economy. Another approach Clinton makes is to fight to protect the Affordable Healthcare Act which will ban insurance companies from discriminating against women and provide women with access to safe preventive care. In a recent political ad released by The Clinton Campaign, Clinton vocalizes that “when politicians talk about defunding planned parenthood they talk about blocking millions of women, men, and young people from prevent healthcare.” (Political Ad: Support & Stand with Planned Parenthood). Sexual and domestic violence is something faced every day in America, and there’s something that needs to be done about it.

For starters, Trump states on his campaign website a “nation without borders is not a nation.” (Trump Make America Great Again, Immigration). Trump also includes ideas about building a wall on the US border, making Mexico pay for the wall, and the mandatory return of illegal aliens, 11 million illegal immigrants. Unlike Trump, Sanders has a different alternative on immigration. Although both candidates have plans on how to tackle immigration, Trump 's plans to deport 11 million aliens seems too unrealistic to accomplish. Not only would it take the US billions of dollars to make that happen but it would also be unfair to the children and families who came here for a better life. On the other hand, Sanders stances make more sense because they provide aliens with a way to becoming US Citizens, that protects undocumented workers from labor and exploitation while providing immigrants with economic opportunity.

In conclusion, all candidates such as Bernie Sanders, Ben Carson, Hillary Clinton, and Donald Trump all include interesting approaches on different issues. Bernie Sanders includes great approaches relating to economic inequality and immigration while Hillary includes detailed plans relating to women’s right. Nevertheless, of the many political candidates running, Bernie Sanders is the fittest candidate running with well thought out plans involving economic
