Feel the Bern! Get a Free Bernie Sanders Tattoo! Video!

By Robert Paul Reyes

"The race to the White House is gaining more attention from an even younger audience.

Most of that audience is showing support for the oldest candidate in the race " Bernie Sanders. Now a tattoo shop in Vermont is giving folks a unique way to show their support.

At 74 Bernie Sanders is the oldest presidential candidate from a major party ever to  hit the campaign trail.

But the democratic socialist septuagenarian from Vermont has a political platform of universal healthcare, raising the minimum wage to $15, and free college tuition for state colleges and universities that appeals to a youthful demographic.

A Sanders political rally has the same vibe as a rock concert: Thousands of young people cheering encouragement to their hero, and buying T-shirts, bumper stickers -- anything that bears his visage or moniker.

Now Sanders` devotees can show their allegiance and support by getting a Sanders tattoo  -- for free.

At 69 Hillary Clinton is almost as old as Bernie Sanders, but her appeal to young voters is almost nonexistent. I can`t see fans of the former Secretary of State getting a Hillary tattoo, they might plaster their walkers with political stickers, but a Hillary tattoo, don`t think so.

I`m too old to be getting any new tattoos, but I would certainly vote for Sanders over Hillary.
