imho No not Hillary:


The Independent Senator from Vermont said in a wide-ranging interview with TIME that Clinton is a "very, very intelligent person" but doubts that she will help bring about the "political revolution in America" that Sanders says the country desperately needs

source

But then there is this scary new poll:

Hillary Clinton Leads Jeb Bush, Chris Christie, Ted Cruz By Wide Margins In Presidential Poll


The poll, conducted by Fox News from March 2-4, shows Clinton leading Bush 51 percent to 38 percent. The margin between Clinton and Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) is even wider, at 52 percent to 36 percent. The head-to-head matchup that produced the closest margin in the poll is between Clinton and New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie (R): 49 percent would pick Clinton, while 38 percent would vote for Christie.

As a liberal I ask others to say no to Hillary!

That's all I have to say about Hillary's Chances.

At least Bernie is honest about himself and his positions in life. He's a socialist and doesn't hide from it. I don't agree with a thing he stands for and I'd fight everything to the last breath on principle alone (and yes..I have looked into this guy, as an individual, in some depth...it's not a general catch all statement). Still........ Saying what you are and staying true to it does earn some points on it's own merit.

Bernie Sanders: America's No1 socialist makes his move into the mainstream

That honesty would be like a tall glass of fresh cold water right now, despite coming from Wayyyyy across the political street.

Oh GOD, Oh God, Oh God, Oh God.....That is the response running through my mind when I read these names for PRESIDENT!!!

Why can't we get a freaking normal, hard working person in office for once?

We are trapped in picking the lesser of all evils....Instead of the best for the job!

I hate our election process....

Quite often Bernie hits the nail on the head and because of this I feel hes has been an important voice in our congress. But while I do not think he is the right person to be our next president, I do feel in the Time article he brought up some very important points that we as voters should be considering when we choose our next leader.

At least he'd be different.

The US has essentially had the same POTUS since 1981.

I have a friend who likes to make a good argument that we would be better off drafting joe american to the presidency with a lottery than we are having professional politicians and the baggage they bring with them.

Don't underestimate the MSM, the same people who portrayed Obama as "sort of a god" and got him elected twice.

On topic, no thanks Bernie. One Socialist in the WH is enough for me. We can do better than Hillary and Bernie, or the rest of the lot, can't we?



I can already imagine campaign ads against Bernie if he were to run for office: "Bernie Sanders is BS".

Aww, Wrabbit, you know that's not entirely true. You don't agree with a single thing he stands for? Sanders voted against the Patriot Act and is very much against NSA surveillance. He also believes that the entire US should be a free speech zone. He actually uploaded a video discussing the former things that was titled "1984".

He's against Wall Street and its influence in our government. He thinks Walmart is terribly damaging to the economy. He wants to see the middle class working and being paid well. Maybe I'm misunderstanding your statement but those things, I think, are things that you actually share a similar opinion on as Sanders.

He is a democratic socialist but he does not run under the banner of any of the Socialist Parties. I think he's too far right of them for that. His stances tend to be more middle of the road, non-specific to any political spectrum or as an outlier. Overall, the guy is brutally honest and doesn't mince words. It'd be a nice change.

I must agree with your friend! I can assure you that I would do better for the people and I know absolutely nothing about the job they do! I would bet my life on it, even a trial period of 6 months....It is sad that we have to pick these pathetic wastes of human life to run our country! Every time, every single time we find a person who would fit the bill better than the rest, they are swept under the rug and basically run off! IE - Ron Paul...There have been others as well but that is a conversation for another day.

ANYBODY would make a better president than Hillary.

Hillary or if she should lose the nomination, doubtful, would be Biden. On the Right we have Christie...not bad...a little shady...Cruz...I like that he opposes the NSA and wants more transparency but some of the things he says go way to far...Jeb Bush.. God we sure don't need another Bush...But those three aren't as loony tunes as Romney, Perry, Bachman or the rest.

I don't think we can win here.

The thing is that is not going to happen. To enact such a change to the Constitution would require a 2/3rds vote in both the House and Senate. Now look at our political system. Do you think they would allow that? No, they wouldn't. Pipe dreams aren't going to save this country. The reality is that we can either continue on and hope that at some point, the offerings are going to actually represent the people or we can give them a big old shot across the bow that reminds them that we have power. If we can vote them in, we can vote them out.

I see a common problem with the politicians you have named, I do not feel any of the represent us "the people" but rather we have a collection of corporate owned whores [s]running[/s] stealing our country.

I'm a fan of Ted Cruz, and i'm hoping he gets the nod. However, I'm sure his NSA stance will quickly change after taking office.

Sanders isn't corporate owned:
At the 1:13 minute mark is where he cuts to the chase in a very, very clear manner.


He's not going to have many--if any--corporate backers, lol, for that one. He wanted to correct the issue of "corporations are people" through amendment. He is deeply concerned about the effects of undisclosed and unprecedented campaign donations coming in from corporations into the government.

Agreed! But why do we have to stick to only a 2 party system? I think a 5-10 party system would work much better. This way, if an idea is really good across everyone's ideals....Then it is put into action....If not, then it isn't simple as that! This way, we have multiple parties FIGHTING to make everything better FOR THE PEOPLE!

When we limit this to 2 parties, this makes them fight over how it benefits THEM, not US! If it doesn't benefit them, the president can still overrule the decision and make it happen, this is not right! In a multiple party system, it would be a majority vote or nothing...This way, they can get the people to back them on their decision also and get input from us!

I still feel like every bill that is trying to get passed should be required to be sent to every citizen to review and vote on like the census! It could even be electronic, but I don't see any reason this can't happen!
