The current government system takes care of the 1% who buys them. When the government works for 99% it is called socialism. I will take that.

One good example is what happened in Greece with Syriza.

The problem is not everyone wants to be 'taken care of'. Some people grow up and understand it's time to take care of themselves.

Well, Trump hasn't even agreed with himself 93% of the time.

I understand that independent feeling. That is american. But I also understand we come together in times of distress. such as World Wars, Attacks ie 9/11, floodings, tornadoes, hurricanes. Right now, we are in distress because too many are working full time or several part time jobs, and still can't afford the rent. That is why Bernie's time has come. If you have never needed a helping hand, that is too bad. Everyone should experience that side of human nature.

Another deceptive headline in yet another attempt to pigeonhole Sanders. In the instances where his voting record does overlap with Clinton's, it also matches virtually all the other lawmakers as well - there are numerous domestic issues that come up that both Dems and Repubs agree on. Voting the same on those issues does not mean they are cut from the same cloth. Sanders disagreed greatly with Clinton and the majority of politicians on major issues, and has the voting record to prove it.

What are you even talking about ???? Do you even know?


Ummm...well, it's all written down right there for ya. If you read it you'll know what I'm talking about. That's about as much as I can help ya.


Yeah your not saying a thing
That's evident you're hyper sensitive about Sanders and ignore anything when you think something negative was said. Is reading comprehension a problem among among his supporters or is it a select few?

I'd just like to point out that finding out that Bernie and Hillary voted the same 93% of the time doesn't make me like Bernie any less, but DOES make me like Hillary a little more. Not enough to vote for her over Bernie, but more, nonetheless. So thanks, OP.

Not at all shocking to me.

However, it's the 7% difference (his votes against the Iraq war, against the bank bailouts, against the Patriot Act, against the Patriot Act reauthorization, and against 2006 border fence legislation,) and the other areas in which he contrasts heavily with Clinton (he supports breaking up the banks, opposes foreign military intervention, opposes the death penalty, opposes the Keystone XL pipeline, opposes offshore drilling, 9/10 donors are unions versus Clinton's 6/10 banks, he has raised no Super-PAC funds, 80% of his donations are in amounts less than $200, only 1.2% of his contributions were the $2,700 maximum, and his personal net worth is $330K vs Clinton's $21 million) that will cause me to vote for him in my state's primary.

(All points taken from Politifact.) I also regard his civil rights record as being stronger than Clinton's to some extent (particularly their grassroots activities when younger, when compared to one another.)

Now, will I vote for him in the general election? That depends. Right now, I agree with 99.9% of his positions. If those positions change, if he flip flops, if he takes the path of political expediency over principle, and if it becomes clear he is just another facade that will be hamstrung (or worse still, in collusion with) the typical power brokers in Washington, then no... I will not vote for him. I will do what I always do in that case: vote for absolutely no one. I refuse to choose the lesser of several evils, as always.

Sanders is the first candidate I have ever even come close to voting for for president, as he is the first to truly represent (most of) my ideals. I don't think he has much chance of winning. And I am prepared to completely drop my support for him if he changes course. But I will do my minuscule part to at least give people the option of voting for him in the general election, by voting for him in the primary.

Peace.

I believe we just went over this. I've said plenty and comprehend you find too. I just don't agree with anything you've said.
Is that a problem for you???

Is that all??

Gotta love these thread titles

Maybe it is Clinton voted with Sanders, although it does not make much difference.

Per the OP quote:

"In fact, from January 2007 to January 2009, Mrs. Clinton, representing New York, voted with Mr. Sanders" ...

It titled to make Sanders look like he is controlled by Clinton. Just more mud.

93%, as a member of the same party, I'm guessing, makes them more dissimmilar than a human and a chimp.

Proving again.....they're all cut from the same cloth.


Absolute not. It proves that Sanders caucuses with the Dems in the Senate and that Sanders does not set the political agenda of the Democratic Senate leadership.

Look at his voting record on the issues. He's been dead consistent as opposed to Hillary who supported the war until people like Sanders made it ok for Dems to be against it.

This is thee first article I've ever read anyone of anyone trying to diss Sanders. It has a passive aggressive "stay camp Hillary" tone to it. She's bleeding in Iowa and outright losing by double digits in New Hampshire so expect more of these pieces (that talk about vote averages but avoid mentioning what votes they DIDN'T vote together on).

Bernie Sanders seems a down to earth kind of guy with good intentions, but beware, idealists these days are the first to fall once they sit in the chair and realize whats really going on, dont be easily decieved..


He's been a senator for a while. No need for innuendo just look at his voting record which is absolutely consistent over the years.

Perhaps that's why they call it a Caucus.

(You might be shocked to find that Republicans do the same thing.)


Well, there are only two candidates running who didn't vote with the rest 100% of the time.

Donald Trump
Ben Carson

One could make an argument for Rand Paul as well, but it wouldn't be 100%

I have voted Democrat before, I will NOT this time.

I'll be voting for a NON career politician this time.

Time for REAL change.

Their goals are the same, jst like Hill's and O's goals are the same. The CommunistPry has taken over the Democrat Party. It was a goal long ago. So many people don't want to believe it, or will deny it or say the Democrat Party are not real leftists or that we just don't know what socialsm is. I always have to at that that.
But a tee may be few differences like Hillary will push Universal childcare an Bernie is pushing the robin hood tansaction tax. Does anybody really think these things dont all come from he same flawed ideology that the Nanny state must take care of everybody?

Of course in addition to being "taken care of", the 99% would be micro-controlled by their Nanny, which a lot of people seem to want, because they believe their Nanny will protect them from all the evils of the world.

If you would vote for one why wouldn't you vote the other? They're nearly identical, which is the point of the article. They spend their entire campaigns trying to make themselves look different to the voters, but they aren't. At this point it just comes down to who you like more. I can't see Hillary being likable by anyone, so advantage Bernie.
