Not one political candidate touched on these topics, topics which are in my opinion popular with most Americans; ones we're inclined to agree with given the state of our current political system.

Any who, the most retweeted tweet of the GOP debate goes to Bernie Sanders. Although there are a few other issues he didn't mention, the majority of the ones he said, I agree with.

Source

There was no shortage of tweetable moments during last night's explosive Republican debate on Fox News, but the most retweeted moment actually came from a Democratic presidential candidate: Sen. Bernie Sanders.

"It's over. Not one word about economic inequality, climate change, Citizens United or student debt,” Sanders (I-Vt.) tweeted as the two-hour-long debate wrapped up. "That’s why the Rs are so out of touch.”


Feel the Bern!!!

He sounds about as relevant as Debbie Wasserman-Schultz getting upset that they somehow didn't relate every single issue back to women's health.

Please, every poll taken shows that Climate Change as an issue is about the least important thing in the list of priorities as far as the average American voter is concerned.

So? It's not like you're the only generation on the face of the earth. I believe there is X and Y and the baby boomers. We outnumber you.

Talk about narcissism if you think you're the only ones who matter.

with all due respect it was the FIRST debate

And the focus of the debate was to talk about the most recent remarks and policies proposed by the candidates....

Im sure they will get into the rest as we go along

Thats like watching a preview and then being pissed because you didnt get to see the whole movie

OMG!! Americans are tweeting about Bernie! Where's Bernie?!

You know if he ever actually won, the movie "Weekend at Bernies" would sum it up just right. A dead puppet....


What ever happened to Ron Paul. ....yup, exactly...we got his son. Figures.

No, no, I kid, I kid. Vote Bernie, he's our man, if he can't do it Clinton or Bush can.

As soon as we tire from this nonesense the sooner we're free. But I mean, come on. Who really wants that?

Isn't it funny that the oldest white guy in the room appeals most to the kiddies? They must have serious grandpa issues or something.

Fair enough. Having said that, I won't be selecting a candidate based on that alone.

I get the distinct impression that the young'uns aren't going to have any of it.

They see the policies and they also see the effects of those policies directly in their own lives.

Are you saying that Obama just never got around to his pièce de résistance and now finally, we can all rejoice in an even more socialist charlatan who will realize the dream?

Pashaw!

If true, *that* is a sad commentary right there. We'll see how they poll, oh, say, 20 years from now.

Remember the hanging Chad?

Remember the dude who died in a Cesna on his way to testify he stuffed the electronic vote in Ohio?

Remember when they labeled over 25,000 innocent black men "felons" when they weren't so they couldn't vote in a "swing state"

Remember when .....Ah never mind.

Go Bernie!!

That's interesting, but meaningless in the overall picture. Bernie has 524K followers on Twitter. Trump has 3.6 Million.

Just discovered you apparently have to be registered on Twitter to track retweet stats. No thanks! Never used it, never will.

I was not expecting important issues to be discussed in this debate.

This was a Republican debate afterall I'm glad they discussed important things like Abortion and God

I've been watching things closely over the past few months regarding the potential candidates and I am starting to really like this bloke.

You see, it's about keeping the bread & butter on the table, it's about jobs, it's about grossly insane budgetary allocations and political corruption across the board, it's about reigning in corporate oligarchies and transparent investigations regarding the miss-use of public funds. It's about looking after Americans instead of being corporate and banking driven global war-pigs come police, it's about looking after our beautiful planet - we only have this one.

It should not be about keeping dynastic political bloodlines accustomed to their way of life, it is not about race, colour, religion or one's individual bedroom preferences, it's not what the propaganda machine says it is about [insert subject of choice] - it would be closer to the opposite.

So, in 2016, I urge all voters to choose their candidate not based on the party they represent but based on the content of their individual character and their policies.

Collectively, we share more in similarities than differences, the propaganda machine is set-up and geared towards the negative amplification of those differences to keep good honest decent loving folks disliking, nay even hating each other.

We want to break free.

The really, really sad thing here is what you just posted above. Don't get me wrong,there has yet to be a statement you've made that I've disagreed with. That says something and certainly means a lot to me, if nothing else. You really are something special.


All that said, let's be honest here. What are the chances the "people" ever have a chance of RETAKING back their/our country through a rigged voting system? When really just about every single one of them who actually has a chance of winning, has likely killed or worse to get where they're at.

Just curious. And now, I digress.

As I said. Go Bernie!

"It's over. Not one word about economic inequality, climate change, Citizens United or student debt,”


Probably they didn't get a mention because those aren't issues that their constituency is interested in hearing about. I know that if one of them had mentioned climate change he would have lost my vote (not that they have it anyway). Why would they mention topics that would lose them their voters?

Bernie has enough problems of his own to worry about.
