I saw this posted on Facebook and was surprised to see no one had posted it on ATS.

Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) will launch a campaign seeking the Democratic nomination for president in 2016 on Thursday.

Sanders will be the first official challenger for the Democratic nomination to former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, who launched her campaign earlier this month.

Sanders' decision was first reported by Vermont Public Radio, and confirmed by The Huffington Post.



Finally, someone who I can vote for in 2016.


Sanders, who first entered the Senate in 2007, has criticized Clinton for being too soft on Wall Street and has doubted whether Clinton can address income inequality.

Sanders has been an outspoken critic of the Trans-Pacific Partnership, a trade deal the Obama administration is negotiating with 11 Pacific countries. Sanders is also a critic of the controversial Citizens United Supreme Court decision, which struck down corporate campaign contribution limits. Sanders has tried to pass a constitutional amendment to overturn the decision.


How do you all feel about this ATS?

Whether you like him or not it is good to have a challenger to any nomination instead of a presumptive corronation.

I wonder how hard the Clinton campaign will spin any jabs he takes at Hilbot.

I totally agree. And although I have always voted democratic in the past I will not be voting for Hillary this time around.

He seems like a real person to me, like you or me and not corrupt. I'd vote for him over Hillary in a heartbeat or Bush in a heartbeat.

I think he would be the one candidate most likely to try.

So he's fully committed himself as a Democrat with this, even though he was elected as an independent. Hopefully he'll become a stronger voice in the Democratic Party, even if he doesn't get close to the nomination. Now Hillary will have to say yes or no to a series of debates, and will have to do one or two of them. Those will be "must sees".

I approve of having more ideological disparity between candidates so that Americans can vote based on policy instead of personality.

In a Sanders/Paul race the choice would be very simple, socialism or liberty.

Unless he makes it a campaign platform, I ain't buying it.

Bernie's been a hero to me, a real dude not just a politician. He hasn't been bought and stands against the TPP, the NSA, he helped defeat the TWC/Comcast merger, works to protect internet freedom and continuously speaks to wealth inequality not just to pay it lip service. He's a democratic socialist which is not the same as socialist, he won't be seeking to undo Capitalism (unfortunately)... though the right-wing media will be screaming such 24/7.

Anywho, supporters get ready to put your money and your time where your mouth is, he's not accepting corporate donations and the media won't give him the time he deserves. And be ready to fight the barrage of incoming lies.

Bernie 2016!

He will be running an interference campaign in support of the selected nominee.

What he says in speeches and debates will have zero to do with real action.

He can afford the self-scapegoat masquerade.

I will be waiting for his answers to the level of authoritarian policies needed to get his ideals into reality.

He usually dodges and weaves and rarely gives a clear concise answer to anything.

Well, he'd repeal the patriot Act, so it's ether him or the Libertarian candidate.

I'm not screwing around anymore.

Between the two, Paul is the clear winner on that though Gary Johnson (L) even more so.

Rand Paul

Gary Johnson would be my first choice, I don't like Paul's flip-flop on drones and he's gotta SAY that he'll repeal the Patriot Act.

Sanders' would be a close 3rd.

I could give a hoot about anything else, really.

The Patriot Act will be the death of us.

I have come to consider public sector unions the greatest immediate threat to our country.

If I were a pragmatist, I would have to admit that the only candidate that has them in his sights is Scott Walker.
