If it has to be a lib sanders over Hillary.


Silly sillies. Hillary is 100% behind a Bernie Sanders victory. So is Jeb! So is Trump!


As they say, ignore the talk watch the walk.
Follow the Money

Bernie is not backed by One Crony Capitalist Corporation or Bank in Funding unlike Bush, Obama,Hillary, Jeb and so on.
He is being backed by your average American.


And that is the reason he is gaining popularity, also the reason he will never be president. You want to be a big dog, you interact and establish yourself among the big dogs. You don't interact and establish yourself among the porch puppies. Probably not the best analogy but you get the point.


Agreed with that sadly.
But at the same time, me and many others that see the corrupt game for what it is when not be sheeple to their propganda

Free and Fair Elections in US ? All LIES from propagandists.
Most Free Country - All LIES from propagandists.
Wars of Liberation - All LIES from propagandists.

You get the point, until they take Free Speech away as well.

They LOVE that $$$Money$$$ is "Free Speech" but real speech by the lowly masses must be silenced.

No not like that at all I specifically said no on public financing, did you read what I posted or saw campaign finance reform and jumped to show he is doing something? Seems like the latter


This is what you said.


He really wants to help. Then he needs to push something along the lines of campaign finance reform.


So I provided you with his plan on Campaign Finance Reform. What did you expect, that his plan would match your plan???

Clearly you just want to b*tch about anything and everything and plan on doing it with a crap attitude toward me at the same time. So you can go argue with someone else now.

Granted you're probably a little upset because your little fit you're having about Sanders in this thread and the other one aren't working out the way you'd planned. Get over it.

I am really happy to see someone calling out Dave Cote of Honeyhell.

Wherever Obama goes out with open hands making "peace offerings" Honeyhell isn't far behind building research centers and production facilities. Then what do you know...Honeyhell gets hundreds of millions of dollars in contracts, and then lays off the comparable employees in the US - and brags about how effective his cost cutting and business streamlining measures are. Its outsourcing - regardless of what creative jargon is used to describe it.

I do not understand your thinking Neo. The Free Stuff meme is from Crony Capitalists. They want to give you "Free Stuff" to profit from and have others pay for it.


No. The stuff 'meme' comes from politciians trying to buy votes. Which should more appropriately be called the 'robbing hood' complex.

Politicians have been using it for decades. Rob from the rich, Give to the poor, So the poor can go out, and BUY more stuff.



Nice little story you have going there NEO. Keep believing that.
Obama for example promised many things to get votes to the people that picked him, didn't he?

Here are just a few

Transparent Government
Rein in Corruption on Wall Street.
If you like your doctor you can keep your doctor.
Reduce the cost of healthcare

And more

www.activistpost.com...

Obama's top donors were Banksters and Healthcare.
You do the math.

IT IS THEFT from the poor and middle class to the rich that own our government

So tell me how the voters were helped from his promises?
They weren't.
The wealthy parasites that are infesting our government did.

We should start by breaking up the to big to fail banks, if they're to big to fail, then they shouldn't exist with that much power to create instability.

Eliminate tax havens. Make corporations pay taxes. Repatriate the trillions of US dollars held offshore. Eliminate corporate welfare.

That equals hundreds of billions of dollars. This money could be used in rebuilding our infrastructure, in creating jobs, small business loans, community programs.

Incentives for entrepreneurs to open businesses in less advantaged areas. I mean they're plenty of things we could do.

------------------

Phase in a higher minimum wage, so those who are working and busting their behinds can live and not just survive one paycheck away from despair.

The wealth gap in my opinion is defined by the few having more collective wealth than billions of poor people; it's a global issue.

Richest 1% Will Own More Than All The Rest By 2016

And in the US the Walton family has more wealth than the bottom 30 to 40 percent.

Source

But this comparison of wealth desn’t show us quite what Mr. Goldberg thinks it does. If you’ve no debts and have $10 in your pocket you have more wealth than 25% of Americans. More than that 25% of Americans have collectively that is.


That's the inequality I'm talking about. Unless that changes, by 2016 the few will own more than the entire world combined.

I hate to break it to you, but it's not those CEOs faults, it's the politicians who opt to take their money then protect them by passing the laws that they are able to game and take advantage of. If you were one of those CEOs you seriously wouldn't do the same thing if it were legal? If you say no, I'm calling BS. Maybe if we had ANY politicians that had any integrity we wouldn't be where we are right now, but your buddy Bernie was there in DC, and ultimately that makes him responsible with the rest of them. Funny he starts to speak up about it now when it's too late.

I see your point, sort of. But I cant dismiss their actions simply because it wasn't illegal enough for them not to do it. There is a moral compass by which we are all guided - or at least there should be. Not to mention the ethical encroachment of certain professional activities that should never occur.

"Calling them out", huh? Let me know when they get arrested.

Government knows what side their bread is buttered on.


Those companies butter sanders' bread huh? How bout looking into the source of his donations, and specifically who he DOESN'T take donations from.

I didn't say him exclusively. Nice twist. You go right on believing (or promoting) current government et al, has the peoples over big business interest at heart.

Can't get fooled again.



No, yet you said it in relation to the ONE candidate who doesn't take donations from big corporations like that, which is..odd, to say the least.

We have service men and women at war out there fighting and dying right now all in the name of freedom. Yet these corporate weasels are bleeding this country dry. The no 1 contributor to Obama and Romneys campaign was JP Morgan. If I could I'd tie a rope around all of these CEO's necks and toss them from a tree. The stuff going on in this country is nothing more then treason at the Americans peoples expense. These people need to burn.

So throw the wounded veteran who can't work and needs disability to the dogs, it's just a bribe no one actually needs help.

May I ask what is the purpose of government anyway? Thought it was supposed to be, by the people, for the people. If it's not actually helping the people in any way what so ever? What exactly is it supposed to do?



Defend the national borders and uphold the rule of law.



In the very beginning.


We the people of the United States, in order to form a more perfect union, establish justice, insure domestic tranquility, provide for the common defense, promote the general welfare, and secure the blessings of liberty to ourselves and our posterity, do ordain and establish this Constitution for the United States of America.

‹ U.S. Constitution


Policies like NAFTA, TPP, China Trade and so on at the expense to this country goes against the Constitution.
Tariffs are Constuitutional and that is how you fight for the best interests of your nation.

The Global Corporate Fascists do not want national protections though. Only for them as seen in the TPP.

Prancing around the globe with our military to protect Corporate and Banking interests is unconstitutional.
That is their OWN responsibility, not the Tax Payers


Tariffs are constitutional (and destructive), I do concede their presence and their definition here isn't contested.

However, General Welfare as it was defined and intended at the time did not mean economic social assistance.

I am very much opposed to cronyism and any application of the power of the state for any purpose other than that which is clearly defined.

I am aware it never meant social assistance.
It meant passing economic policies beneficial to ALL in this nation and not just the few wealthy elite.

Trading with a country like Communist China, where workers have no rights and where they stole millions of peoples lands and forced them to move to the cities to make widgets should have been something everyone in this country was outraged about.

But when there is money to be made by the Corporate Fascists, we heard not a peep or outcry about it.
Not to mention the damage done to this country where we moved a lot of our infrastructure to China.

We can't do anything about China since it is their own country, but the corporate lobbyists for trade with China should be brought up on charges for human rights abuses.

Mainly because of foresight. I don't want to see a Sanders presidency because when he runs out of ivory towers to burn down, he'll turn to golden towers, then to silver towers, then to wooden towers... That's the problem with socialists, they just run down the ladder knocking people off until everyone is on the bottom, then they take away the ladder to keep you there.

I still have significant nationalist attitudes when it comes to necessary military defense but, I have none when it comes to economic warfare. The very same policies that we both abhor in cronyism are born of protectionism such as tariffs.

How Convenient.
And why is that?

It comes down to money doesn't it?
There is money to be made for defense contractors and there is money to be made off cheaper labor.

You want completely free trade I take it.
Both Workers and Owners need to be free in all countries we deal with then. Correct?

That crosses out China, since workers have no rights.

Also, if a country in Indonesia can produce a drug cheaper than Big Pharma in the US can, then they should be able to sell it to whomever they please.

That is Free Trade at work.

The TPP is anything but fair and free trade.

Corporate Fascists want complete freedom for themselves the world over but don't think workers and consumers should have complete freedom when working or buying goods elsewhere.

They want protections and they run to the big bad government with its military to enforce it.

Big Pharma and Monsanto come to mind right off the bat.

More power for them and no power for the consumer.

Theft eh ?

Government created fiat currency to begin with.

So basically the POLITICIANS created the MEANS to pay themselves with.

The more power they take. The more money they make.

Every single person, and business's alike is that the MERCY of fiat currency.

I do not know why some people refuse to see that.

Guess it just doesn't fit in to their false narrative that everything 'wrong' in this country is the 'evil' corporations fault.

All roads lead to Washington DC, and those SHILLS on capitol hill like Sanders playing to the masses perpetual ID complex.

And so, I'm going to switch it out. Instead of Sanders, we'll just put in another name....say....how about "Trump"?

Yeah.

So

I don't want to see a Trump presidency because when he needs to go "bankrupt" again, he'll turn to building more businesses in CHINA! China, China! China...china, CHINA!

Because China.

We have already ostracized and discouraged enough economic activity in the United States. The corporate tax rates are too high already and preferential treatment has made it even worse. Those who could have already left and our policies now serve only to harm our own innovators.

If you want to coax productive commerce back to our shores, demonizing them and chastising them hardly seems productive.

I see. So I'm sure you have some actual data to show that Sanders will do that huh??? Because that sure doesn't seem to be the case in his home state of Vermont.

Just because he's a democratic socialist who's actually done great things in his home state and earned the respect of many. Still, because of that title and nothing more you wont consider him???

Who else will you be choosing BTW???
