Sanders lost me even before he announced his candidacy.

His criticism of Netanyahu's speech to Congress, despite Netanyahu being between a rock and a hard place in that refusing Boehner's invitation would have disaffected The Republicans who have been Israel's largest supporters.

Netanyahu voiced Israel's position as their leader is obligated to. Sanders' struck me as unfair and pandering to the anti-Israeli crowd.

He has continued the class warfare by attacking 'billionaires' and the 'solutions' merely concentrate even more power to organizations rather than individuals. Unions, media, political action groups and, of course, the federal gov't.

Fast forward to today's announcement offering free university tuition, if elected. Of course, at a later date, it will be found that it would be 'unfair' to make those who still have college debts to have to pay when it's would be free today and a whole new demographic has their votes purchased by even more federal freebies.

This is a particularly slick offer knowing full well it would never get past Congress without similar tactics as Obama's executive orders, of course. The result is no real risk of delivering while buying more votes from yet another demographic.

Any Republican candidate is a better option that anyone offered on the left.

Same old, same old. Class warfare, even more freebies, standard left wing/socialist agenda to garner more power.

Regressives should be made to start from scratch...


No house, no money, no weapons, no food, zilch...
Without a single helping hand nor progressive intuition to save you.

And be forced into DIY...



Not for any political reason...

Just my own personal amusement.


Bernie is too soft on the Zionists.
Bernie will soon become too soft on the billionaires...

Same old same old. Lying politicians, even more rhetoric, standard leftright paradigm pushers agenda to garner the flock's support.

Well, Bernie is an unapologetic socialist. And I like that. Apparently, many other Americans do as well. Though I'm withholding support for him for now.

That's the good thing about democracy. We're not forced to agree on topics & we have a choice in the candidates we choose to support (at least in theory). So it's perfectly fine for you not to support him.

It is only class warfare when you talk about the rich right?

But when you call the poor parasites and waste of breath it is just calling it how it is....

Bull poop, how about realizing that you have no business in our nations policies and coming and making a speech is clearly trying to put your nose in that.
Conservatives don't even like Boehner either, they wouldn't of disaffected anyone
Who is your horse in this race?

More of a pipedream than a rebuttal.

Let's just take solace in agreement that Bernie has all the attributes of a snake oil salesman.

Just keep marching ....left /right/left/right...surely you will get somewhere eventually


When a politician says something to the public he is looking for votes,its not like they have to follow through on any promises made,its all a farce to buy your vote and you are falling for it....




Same old, same old. Class warfare, even more freebies, standard left wing/socialist agenda to garner more power.




To play this game i would reply to you that is typical right winger nonsense

'Regressives' promote disarming the populace, taking their property, and squashing their free speech. Taking backward steps against personal liberty.

Those are tactics of the left.

Been there, did that. Builds character.

Would have to disagree, he has a record of backing up what he stands for and not just blowing hot air.

I do agree with thought process that we have all heard this before and it is just a optician being a politician though.

There's a lot of Jews even within Israel that are against Netenyahu. You should read the Jerusalem Post sometime or Haaretz or look up anti-Zionist Jews.

Free college.

FREE COLLEGE?

It'll only be "free" if we simply surrender all our assets and let government dictate what we should have, eat, where we should live.

Sure you did.

Any medical treatment in that time?
Any jobs?
Was you wearing clothing?
Did you wipe your arse on toilet paper?

Something tells me a little progression helped you out of your low times.
Maybe some social care too? Just a smidgen?

I never suggested otherwise. I never brought up...or even considered his religion in this threat...in other words, not germane.

What you've failed to noticed, or bother researching, is that Sanders, for most of his career, has been mostly nuetral when it comes to Israel but it wasn't until the 2014 Gaza conflict that killed thousands of Palestians that he had something to say about the current Israeli govt. Lo and behold, now you're holding that against him. Shocking.

But Sanders is a friend of Israel and isn't pandering to the anti Israel crowd, as you assume.

Anyone who believes people should be charged to be educated with knowledge that is freely available to all, either comes from a generation fooled into thinking its a commodity...
Or is just too right wing to be any benefit to a nation hoping to grow in all departments.
