As excitement builds for the 2016 U.S. presidential election, the people want to choose a candidate who speaks for them. Somebody who isn’t afraid to say what we’re all thinking. The GOP has their frontrunner, business mogul and former reality TV star Donald Trump, who is grabbing America by the balls with his fearless rhetoric. The Democrats, however, have a candidate who is taking the country by storm, and he’s doing it with the dankest memes imaginable: Sen. Barnie Sandlers.

Barnie Sandlers doesn’t cater to special interest groups. He’s fighting for the 99 percent of Americans who feel robbed by the top one percent—those with the majority of the wealth in the country—and he makes that point resoundingly clear with said dank memes.

Sandler’s message is clear: Americans who make memes together succeed together.

And Sandler is the only candidate with a realistic plan to beat and reverse climate change.

When Barnie Sandlers is president, he’ll make sure we can spend time doing the things that really make this country great.

Sandlers stands in strict opposition to “Dolan J. Tramp,” who’s running on a platform of “less memes.”

When it comes to dank memes, Sandlers’ primary opponent, “Hitlery Clintock,” isn’t even trying.

The only other candidate who comes close to Sandlers’ commitment to dank memes is New Jersey’s “Krisp Kristi,” who is “meming it like it is.”

The momentum is in Sandlers’ favor, however, as Americans band together to #FeelTheBarn.
