... and doing it on a shoestring (for non-English speakers - that mean very inexpensively)....


Presidential candidate Bernie Sanders addressed an estimated 100,000 supporters at more than 3,500 house parties in all 50 states on Wednesday night, at what is being called the largest campaign event of the 2016 election cycle thus far.


....


The man himself spoke from what the Burlington Free Press described as "a modest, steamy apartment" in the nation's capitol. His remarks were delivered "off a yellow legal pad balanced precariously on a wobbly music stand," added Salon.


Go Bernie.

I didn't support Obama in 2008, but I knew he would win based on the huge crowds he was drawing. The only candidate to date drawing huge crowds is Bernie.

Bernie Sanders running as a Democratic Socialist could cause the republican party to abandon the only catering to the far right and conservatives, this group will not win you a national election. Time will tell.

I hope he wins. I'm not a democrat or a republican, I just respect honest men and this man is. Ron paul was and I supported him and now Berny is and he's got my vote. To have Hillary or bush there again is the most sour sick taste in my mouth. I believe Sanders will actually change things for the better.

Have you noticed that bush and hillary are kind of laid back, well, this is how the came works in politics. It's all about the media after the hot air is all let loose (Rose Perot comes to mine, dude was good). I will say this,the game is rigged, Bush is going to be the next president, hillary is too weak to continue her campaine, and Sander, well, we all know the good guys dont win in politics.

From someone on the outside not exposed to the US propaganda machine.

If you want a good left candidate go for Bernie

If you want a good right candidate go for Rand paul

If you are a idiot or a banker and like the status quo and want the USA to continue with crony capitlism and banker wars go for Bush or Hillary.

And if you want to hand the USA directly over to the corperations and banks and bypass the middleman vote Trump.

Though Bernie seems like a great candidate I have a question


How is this the largest event ?

How is this any different then any televised deal?

and how did they get their estimates?

I like both Bernie and Rand.

They both seem level headed and seem to want what is best even if there views are opposites

I see potential for the USA people with either. Both offer diffrent but promising roads.


Bush and Hillary are just banker and defence contract puppets like Obama and Bush

And Trumps just a idiot.

He is an Independent. Democratic Socialist, throughout his career.

For purposes of his campaign he is " caucusing" with Dems.

Exactly like what Rand Paul is doing, too - (running as a Republican).....even though he's a Libertarian.

edit on 7/31/2015 by BuzzyWigs because: spelling, sorry. Independent.

Oh ok nice, Ill be fully honest with you I don't know anything about sanders , I kind of gave up on all politicians save for rand paul. I have been so focused on his campaign ....

I am currently now looking up sanders political history ,he seems solid .


It seems him and paul are on the same path.

Paul and sanders 2016 POTUS VPOTUS what say you ?

in a perfect political world it shouldn't matter ,however we are not in a perfect world are we ?


EDT: my inquiry about his party position was a serious question , but it seems you were unable to answer it .

I assumed by your previous post you had knowledge of him , apparently i was mistaken.

damit. Made a reply and then it disappeared.

I think it is plausible that it is a 'protege/coach' situation.
I'd have no issue at all with Sanders/Paul.
But "Rand" needs to mature into his role.

I am perfectly open to the idea that this is a ruse that started 20 years ago.

Still - Bernie is picking up steam, and that is GOOD ENOUGH for me.

I agree , but i have to add that i feel paul is mature enough for his roll , I watched his most of his 8hr + fillibuster , i must say he has what it takes to change this gov if elected . now if they are both elected .....even better .

I had knowlefge of him and thought he was a democrat until someone said he was a indi.

But I was only really paying attention to what his policys ect were.

End of the day it makes little diffrence what lable you give him.

Maybe. It's very plausible that Rand is being groomed, and Bernie is the coach to help him learn the ropes

Thank you for your post, S&F. I have never been this excited about a presidential candidate. Bernie Sanders is just what this country needs.

Sorry to rain on everyone's parade but...


Even if 99.9% of Americans voted for Sanders, he won't get in.

He's not a member of the Boys' Club, and he's not a corporate puppet.

The poor bugger hasn't a hope in hell.
