How can you NOT AFFORD a Sanders presidency?
He's one man against a plutocratic legislative body that will wash the feet of those who will hire them as "consultants" should the political wind turn south...

It is the thought process that the middle class will be taxed to poverty to pay for those already in it.

Something that Bernie has never said, his goal is to bring back the middle class that we had back in the day, when our tax rates were much higher for those making much more then the middle class.

I think the fact that Sanders is getting a lot of young followers is the more important point of this campaign. Sanders has had more than one IAMA at reddit, a place where most politicians go down in flames in a very short time.

Could you imagine Jeb or Hilary doing an IAMA at reddit??? lmao

Not sure where this election is going, but it's obvious the younger voters are for Bernie Sanders.


He has also been on the radio every week on Thom Harman's show for years - fridays regular "Brunch with Bernie". He has been out there working on these issues (not his pocketbook) for years, his whole life really.

And so are millions of the Baby Boomers, Gen Xs, immigrants, and LOTS of others.

They all suck unfortunately, but LaRaza is a segregated racist organization that is pro Latino only,

Oh! And, so - is that why the audience contained people of EVERY ethnicity?

This is one of the darkest hours in American history... not THE darkest of course, but one of them


Bernie is a socially conservative person's worst nightmare.

Yes he is. I keep telling my fellow Christians that we need to start driving this socialism bus or we're gonna get run over by it, but no one's listening.

It means they are deathly afraid he has enough support for the win!

I know! Right??!!!

They aren't listening. You're right.....

Even Pope Francis is on board with all of this. In fact, Sanders even mentioned him!! (And I don't want to hear any flack from readers about how Catholics are not "Christians"....or not "Christian enough" (read: far-right enough to count) for the right-wing Christians - because Catholics ARE Christians.)

The Pope and the Dalai Lama are both SPOT ON....and the Dalai Lama is DEFINITELY not "Christian. (The "right-wing Evangelicals" are not "spot on".)

Brothers and sisters, throughout history, for whatever reason — and I’m not a psychiatrist — racism has been a stain on human existence…

This issue was raised, interestingly enough, just a few days ago when Pope Francis, one of the very great leaders in this world today, stated and I quote, “I humbly ask forgiveness. Not only for the offense of the church herself, but also for the crimes committed against the Native people during the so-called conquest of America.” End of quote. That’s Pope Francis. (applause)

I don't know what you mean by "driving the socialism bus" Why not listen to Sanders and debate the issues.

That Pope Francis is the real deal.

The amount of pantie bunching up he causes from those that subscribe to the religion he is the head of is great.

The Bernie Sanders President Scenario for success:

1. Bernie President.

2. Slight Republican or Democrat House of Representatives that leans Social Democrat.

3. The Senate would need a solid 60 Socialist Democrat seats.


Heavy (R)House majority and/or not 60 (SD)Senate seats = stalemate beyond belief. Maybe not a bad thing if they spend minimal dollars with out needed revenues.


(SD)House and 60 solid (SD)Senate would need necessary government revenues to sustain Social spending programs. Increasing government revenue would require massive jobs increase/higher business taxes to get the revenue.


Not easy.

Go Bernie !!

What is (SD)? Oh - Social Democrats, I see now.
????

Is that it?
Do you have a problem with people having food, housing, health care, etc.? Or a problem with stopping lobbying (a la Citizens United) and making corporations pay their fair share? With a decent wage for their employees? And not allowing a CEO of some global conglomerate to earn 300x (or more) than their front line workers?

*sigh*


Yeah.
GO BERNIE!!!!

All I hear is class warfare and racial division.

But what's truly disturbing is that there are people on ATS who still think anything is going to change for the better by participating in this ridiculous political "system".

Go ahead. Elect who yanks on your emotions the hardest. Four years from now we'll be having the same stupid conversations about the same damn things all over again. And four years after that. And four years after that.

You will continue to be led by dangling carrots to your own slaughter. You all should really know better by now. I have no sympathy anymore for the ills that are befalling the people of this country.

You're doing it to yourselves. I don't get it.

Might have a point about the class warfare, but I don't see the racial division.
Well I do, but only from a couple posters but not from the point being made.

Also the point about the shame that is our political system, and maybe I do have my blinders on with Bernie, but I guess it is worth a shot to me.
If some one is truly going to change things though, they would have to go through the system in place. How else would it happen?

I still don't think he has a shot against the Hill dog though tbh.
