One can only hope that Bernie wins. We certainly need a president who has Washington experience and a BRAIN!

Bernie and The Donald are tapping into the same things, just from different angles. I for one am glad to see them out there.

Americans are sick of the groomed/bought politicians. Think about it! People are willing to give a Socialist and a loud-mouthed real estate developer their attention.

Unfortunately if they gain much more ground, the media machine will have to swing into action. Bernie drowns puppies. Trump wants to ban the NFL. Hillary wants to save puppies. Jeb loves football.

He'll be nearly 76 years old when he's sworn in. Doubtful this will happen.

I'd like to see common sense prevail and the only thing that should matter is what we the people want, not some 'from on high' (take that as it may) self-interested politicians who would plunge this country into muddier, albeit more troubled and deeper water.

So far, it's wackjobs and idiots. Bernie, the old cow, is a little of both. But to be fair, I've *not* seen one hopeful I've agreed with...

310 million people in the US (700 million if you count the illegals) and this crop of candidates is the best we can do?

I factored in the wind chill and carbon credits to get the number.

It's Common Core maths!

Not sure if that is the best we can do,but apparently that’s the best the lobbyist and mega corporations can do.

Than again, the system doesn't appear to be broken for the Oligopolies and Mega corporations in charge, just we the people. So I think they are picking the right candidates for themselves just not us.

But you are right, its sad anyway you look at it. Although, if it was up to me I would pick you Groot.

Most people I know are not even remotely qued into what's happening.

Just making money and worried about their tv's or some other ego building activity

Personality-wise, Bernie Sanders is a more seasoned and restrained version of Donald Trump. That's why people are drawn to him. Bernie embodies the modern-day American spirit. Not the old-fashioned spirit that believes minorities should be treated well, as long as they stay in the kitchen and avoid eye contact.

As for Hillary, she's starting to lose her borderline supporters because she's just sitting on her arse, waiting for her coronation day.

My feeling is Hillary and jeb aren't worried because they know the corporations that donate to them also own most of the media or have connections for them.

All they have to do is sit around and wait for the debates. They get all the press and eventually one of them wins.

Because of how our voting system works we all think that they have been elect by the people and go on about our days building bigger weapons and enslaving ourselves for no good reason.

As good as what comes out of Sanders mouth is and even though he may have the best intentions, I plead that everyone think about what has just happened in Greece.

Politicians promised the world to their people. Nice pensions and social programs but they did not have enough revenue thus the debt skyrocketed. Now Greece is broke and is reliant on the IMF and the Eurozone for bailing them out. If a certain measure of austerity is not taken in Greece they will crumble and be kicked out of the Eurozone.

America is on the same path. Since Bush our debt has skyrocketed. The economy is one rate hike away from going to crap again, if it does another round of bailouts and stimulus is a given. Now everyones favorite candidate is another one promising hope and change by handing out more free stuff such as college?

I agree that we need to watch out for those less fortunate and housing and college is too expensive. But I have a feeling his policies will just exasperate the problem not help it.

Do you suggest we continue the same thing we have done for the last 40 years?

Bernie is proposing real change that the country desperately needs, it is not time to be conservative and bank on the statue quo, it isn't working!!!!!

Bernie is polling and beating all the republican candidates, the closest is Bush 47% against Sanders 48%, Sanders is beating Walker 48% to 42% and he is beating Trump 59% to 38% according to the most recent CNN poll numbers.
CNN Poll: Bernie Sanders Leads All Republican Candidates

An overflowing crowd of 200 or so people crammed outside the Crum Box Gastgarden in Railroad Square, and more supporters rallied at the Leon County Public Library downtown. The events coincided with 3,500 other grass-roots gatherings across the country attracting more than 100,000 people, the campaign said.

Sanders, a 73-year-old independent from Vermont, addressed the crowds himself in a live-stream video, touching on issues from income disparity to campaign-finance reform, health care and college-student debt. He pledged, among other things, to overturn the U.S. Supreme Court decision Citizens United, which allows corporations to give unlimited campaign contributions, and to increase the minimum wage.

"The American people are saying loudly and clearly enough is enough," he said. "This great country and our government belongs to all of us and not just a handful of millionaires."

Bernie Sanders rallies draw crowds in Tallahassee

“Tonight really is an historic night,” said Sanders. “To the best of our knowledge, there has never been a political online organizing event this early in the campaign which involved 100,000 people in 3,500 locations in every state in the United States of America. And that’s pretty impressive."

While those numbers could not be independently verified, there was a good deal of online chatter leading up to the live broadcast.

The events were held in bars, backyards and basements. The number of people who RSVP'd to each ranged from four to hundreds of people. A few hundred people gathered at a downtown bar in New York City on 4th Avenue in what was hailed as one of the largest gatherings. Prior to Sanders' speech the crowd shouted out the reasons they were supporting Sanders, citing paid family leave, free college and overturning Citizens United.

Well Rand needs to get the same treatment.

That he is just saying the right things to get elected.

That isn't exclusive to one side.

except Rand actually has some policies he wants to implement and has a history of taking action so........

Hes more than talk

I'd vote for Trump just because Rob Ford isn't eligible to be our President and four years of laughs are greatly needed.

Be careful what you wish for. We had 8 years of laughs with Bush jr. (he only launched the carriers of a thousand comedians and several television shows making fun of him) and look where that got all of us.

I mean I'd vote for Bernie if he gets the nomination, it's just that I'm really worried that he's just going to end up like the Democrat version of Ron Paul and get pushed out of the election when the establishment Democrats realize he's a threat.

You can facepalm as much as you want but requiring background checks for every single purchase wouldn't matter if criminals don't obey that law. It also won't matter if mental cases aren't reported to the system.

You won't believe this but: guns are not the problem.

Yes, I know that. Thanks for reiterating my point.
Criminals already don't obey the law.
