Definitely. I still think he's part of the machine. Kinda hard to talk like he is with your name attached to the USA Freedom Act like it previously was.

I'm guessing his group is hoping people will only look at the 2015 vote and not anything previous.


Well, I don't know if I'd take it that far exactly. I've looked into his voting record and his history of politics and he's been very consistent for over 20 years. Been spouting the same message, fighting the same causes and pushing the same policy ideas. That is one of the most identifying features about him is his consistency.

That is also why for the past 20 years he's been either ignored or looked at as a fringe politician by the establishment. The insiders all think he's nuts because he's an open socialist and independent and he's pushing for changes they wouldn't have the balls to ever push publicly. The establishment ignores him because he wants to redistribute their money by helping the common working man/woman. The people of Vermont at first didn't want him either but once elected they learned to love him over the years for what he's done for them and that state. But at first they thought he was too radical too.

So I'll have to investigate why he was a supporter of such a thing before I make any final decision on it. Because it doesn't fit his typical MO at all.


Bernie is known to reevaluate his stance on different topics and go for the best solutions. That is probably why, but I didn't research it so don't take my word for it.

Bernie is the authentic Ron Paul. If you love Ron Paul, Bernie is the real thing. Give him a listen.

Oh whoever it was up there that said they voted for change and got shafted, I hope you realize it was john Boehner who shafted you and prevented Obama from changing anything. In the Senate it was republicans engaging in more filibusters than any president had in history. More than all the presidents before him put together. So don't tell me how Obama failed, he was blocked by republicans who cared more about power than the country.


Actually, it was Obama who can not work with the Republicans. And most Democrats. Or other people in general.

Don't blame other people for one man's inability to compromise.

Total BS. Republicans did everything they could to ruin his first term in a attempt for him to not get reelected. He worked with the Republicans and what they wanted far more than they did on what he wanted.

Man oh man, Bernie seems to be catching on. Even if he gets elected and can't fulfill his promises, I know it's in his heart, where it counts.
Take it away Bernie.


He's a sellout... he supported and voted for the USA Freedom Act. Done, and DONE! He is not the candidate for the people, he's a candidate that knows what to say TO the people.

No he did not vote for the Freedom Act.

Buster, we already covered this starting here: Back 1 Page

Sanders actually was the co-sponsor of the USA Freedom Act 2014. By 2015 he dropped his name off the co-sponsors list. Due to mOjOm's diligence he pointed out the same thing that you are.

My assumption was based on my previously researched knowledge which I (admittedly) did not verify upon the 2015 vote. Typically the purpose of finding co-sponsors is to drum up support and votes for one's proposed legislation.

I stand by my belief that Sanders is playing the American people for a fool (like the rest of them). I believe the only reason he dropped his support for the USA Freedom Act was his desire to be a candidate for the POTUS. It's politics as usual.

I noticed that MSNBC announced Bernie's victory over Hillary in Wyoming's caucuses with unusual glee. That network used to root for Hillary, and would pretty much downplay Bernie Sander's victories. I wonder what happened to make MSNBC pivot from Hillary to Bernie?

The MSM is like a clock pendulum. Now they're saying that Hillary has the nomination locked up. Why hasn't Bernie Sanders played hard-ball with Clinton. Trump calls her a crook, but Bernie has yet to bring up any of her most heinous transgressions in any of the debates. Isn't it time for Bernie Sanders to pull out all the stops?

Afraid it would be a case of too little, too late.

The only thing that is going to stop the nomination of Hillary is an indictment. ...and, well, the odds on that happening are long, indeed.
