He really offers no actual plans and remedies.

I see your point, but to if he came out and openly proclaimed that he would be a dictator, would that make him more palatable than the others?
I don't disagree with everything the guy says, but the things that I do disagree with, are fairly big topics for me.
Sometimes, he just feels like he wants to carbon copy the style of government that they have in European countries, and quite frankly, I don't want that.

In one sentence, straight off of his campaign website, I will never vote for Bernie Sanders:
Introduced the gold standard for climate change legislation with Sen. Barbara Boxer to tax carbon and methane emissions.
Why is that? We know Climate change is real, most of the scientists in the world are telling us that. Google it. That gives me even more reason to vote for him. He believes in Science.

One of Bernie's goals is to overturn Citizens United and get big money out of politics.
Citizens United v. Federal Election Commission, No. 08-205, 558 U.S. 310 (2010), is a U.S. constitutional law case dealing with the regulation of campaign spending by organizations. The United States Supreme Court held that the First Amendment prohibited the government from restricting independent political expenditures by a nonprofit corporation. The principles articulated by the Supreme Court in the case have also been extended to for-profit corporations, labor unions and other associations.
Corporate personhood is an American legal concept that a corporation, as a group of people, may be recognized as having some of the same legal rights and responsibilities as an individual. For example, corporations may contract with other parties and sue or be sued in court in the same way as natural persons or unincorporated associations of persons. The doctrine does not hold that corporations are flesh and blood "people" apart from their shareholders, executives, and managers, nor does it grant to corporations all of the rights of citizens.

Bernie's Pervy Essay
According to a survey conducted by Pace University in 2004, the Post was rated the least-credible major news outlet in New York, and the only news outlet to receive more responses calling it "not credible" than credible (44% not credible to 39% credible).

Sounds nice, but yelling "this is wrong, this needs to happen, this can happen" doesn't cut it anymore.
I want the nuts and bolts of HOW. If you can't explain HOW, you got nothing.

The point is to stop anyone from buying elections. Unions, Corporations, etc.
Citizens United can be repealed without effecting whether or not you can sue a Corp. also since Person hood would still be in place.
I do agree that others should read it for themselves though. If they would they wouldn't fall victim to believing some of the things you just said.

Doesn't make a damn bit a difference until the people stop being for sale.
