If you're a liberal that isn't drinking Hillary's Koolaid this may be of interest you:


Sanders said that he would center a possible campaign on the “collapse of the middle class” and “income and wealth inequality,” which he calls a “huge issue from a moral sense and a political sense.



Sanders is one of several Democrats eyeing a primary campaign against Clinton. Others include former Virginia senator Jim Webb and Gov. Martin O’Malley (D-Md.). Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.) has been courted by prominent liberals to enter the race, but she has resisted those entreaties and does not appear to be gearing up for a national run.

Bernie is a good guy, he stood up against TARPS. I met him at the Vermont State Fair in RutVegas (Rutland) a few year back, when was just making his first senate run, I shook his hand and called him Senator, he cocked his head to the side kind a shrugged his shoulders and kind a said well we'll see? I like him. Then I was off onto the Fair, ate some EYE-talian sausage with onions and peppers and watched the pig races.

I like Bernie, I hope he does run. Hillary is frightening. We need new Parties, the Dems and the Republican are 2 Parties with 1 Agenda. Oh, and fug Jeb.

Oh that would make me so, so happy.

We could finally, finally get a real liberal on the ballot.

I would love to see him on the ballots of all 50 states as an independent candidate for President.

I think Bernie could truly make a change!

It is also time to update our antiquated congressional system from the current system of two parties and winner takes all, to one of proportional representation.

I've been having a 'progressive' fantasy lately.

Last couple of years Ralph Nader has been talking about points of convergence between populist progressives and populist, let's say, libertarians. He wrote a book on the subject I've yet to read. "Unstoppable: The Emerging Left-Right Alliance to Dismantle the Corporate State"

Those point of convergence include: Repeal of the Patriot Act, Money out of Politics, No Wars, Freedom to Choose and others.

My fantasy. There are a number of well known and respected 'progressives' out there (don't know about respected libertarians so much) that have been forced out of jobs (Dennis Kucinich was redistricted out of his congressional seat) or are out of the public eye that could - just could build a colilition party. With a very well defined platform that all would agree to as basic principles for running the country (state and local).

There is a lot of brain power out there that just will not sell-out to corporatie interests that we need to meet the challenges of today. It could work.

Probably not - as money rules everything - we need publically funded elections.

If Sanders ever got the Democratic nomination (in an alternate universe so far far away and sandwiched in-between two kind-of-alternate universes that you'd need a quantum-telescope to see it) the Repubs would just blast ad after ad about socialism, scare the people further into idiocracy, and demonize him until horns grew out of his head in obedient shame. I'd vote for him.

EDIT: If Sanders runs as an independent he'd just throw the election to another Bush, Nader-style (yep, that's all we need, a third ding-bat from the same family using lies to lead the U.S. into a sandy oily country somewhere), gum up the works, and do nothing more than offer truth to the low-information American people before they wander into the polls in stupors of coffee and donut highs to give the ballot a look-see. I'd vote for him.

I'd be worried about him blowing a blood vessel, but yes, I can support him tremendously more than Mrs. Clinton.

Similarly to Mrs. Barbara Bush, I think we've had enough Clintons in the White House.

I hope I don't have to eat those words; go Bernie Go!

I don't know much about him but I support anyone on either side of the aisle who isn't a Clinton or a Bush. This isn't a country where we're supposed to have a ruling family and those two families have been in charge for 30 out of the 32 years I've been alive.

It's time for a change.

Do you mean Bernie Sanders, the dual Israeli citizen, closet Zionist, and AIPAC fifth columnist wants to run for president of the United States?

Where does this two-faced career politician stand on 9/11 truth?

And it's already started! LOL!

Go, Bernie! You've got the opposition coming after your citizenship and religion! Just like Obama.

And I think Elizabeth Warren would be a GREAT choice for VP...

Uhgh...

I had to go splash water on my face...

You would support an evil progressive? After railing against them for all of these years?

Good for you. Not all conservatives are evil. Not all progressives are evil.
there are a few diamond in the rough politicians out there.
Go Bernie Go!

There's more to it than what you think.

Educate your fellow voting age people now, then. With enough momentum, he wouldn't have to be a demmycrat and could run outright as an Independent which is what he wants to do. This isn't Nader or Perot all over again. We have the time to educate the masses. I've already gathered at least 50-100 votes for him no matter how he runs and many of this people have forwarded on the message to their circles. If we can keep the mainstream media from giving an overplayed Howard Dean moment...we may have a movement.

So you want president Walker?
Bush won't be there, Cruz is too much of a Constitutional nightmare after Obama's Hawaiian birth certificate and Cruz's Canadian birth, Rand Paul will say anything for a dollar and has lost his tea cred. Leaving only Walker...
for now.

Who is "president Walker"?

You seem confused about something.

I think you missed the point - he was hoping Bernie would run and drain votes from dems.

That would be one point the Republicans would cherish for sure.

My points go above that however.
