"The times, they are a-changin'!" Today I envoke the lyrics of Bob Dylan to discuss the meteoric rise of Senator Bernie Sanders from his "Little Campaign That Could" to a real contender in the coming 2016 presidential race. I may not agree with all of Bernie's socialist views, but I believe that Senator Sanders may be exactly the president we need in 2016, just like Franklin Delano Roosevelt was precisely what the U.S. needed in the 1930s.

What do you think about electing a "democratic socialist" president?

IMHO, the spread of socialism in our government is what has us in the predicament that we are in right now, especially the decrease in work force participants.
I'll pass on the Bern.

I agree, Jesse! Feel the Bern! Happy Birthday, Bernie!

People like Bernie are the problem not the solution. If our Government hadn't obligated itself with entitlements beyond its means to pay back the economy and society would be stronger.

I like that Bernie goes against the established order and looks to shake things up, but his basic philosophy and idea of how things should be changed are flawed. Austerity is the answer.

I like what Bernie has to say about the banks and the Fed, but he clearly misses the real point.

Government perpetuated, and aided the criminal bankers and corporate oligarchs in creating this mess (possibly on purpose). He is a Senator, is he not? This all happened on his watch and he said nothing.

Bernie's solution? More government. More of what created the problem. That's exactly what we don't need in a future President.

Rand Paul stood for an entire day railing and gnashing teeth for what he believes in. Bernie mumbles something about government handouts here and there.

Jesse, you are so quick to decry both parties, but now you support someone who wants to grow the monstrosity.

Your position is vexing, to say the least. Hopefully it's not the Mexican water causing your confusion.

It's interesting that Bernie hasn't had to fight dirty or even get any media attention to gain enough support to pull neck and neck with Hillary going into Iowa and New Hampshire.

Hillary's email scandal dominating the headlines has made it easy for him to sit back and paint the picture of a lovable, grassroots, underdog candidate.

If nothing comes of Hillary's email scandal -- other than ruining her chances for the nomination -- then I raise my eyebrow at the picture that's been painted FOR him.

And If Joe Biden enters the race and splits the moderate democrat vote throwing the race to the liberal democrats, Bernie Sanders -- then I will tear that picture to pieces.

AND if Trump breaks with republicans and splits the conservative vote throwing the race to Bernie -- then I will burn the pieces.

If all the stars and planets continue to align for Bernie Sanders -- then I will know that Bernie Sanders is not the man he claims to be.

As far as socialism is concerned, I could get behind a socialist IF there is some serious government OVERSIGHT reform first. I don't think that is an unreasonable request. I have no doubt that Congress would love to spend a trillion dollars on phantom districts again under Bernie's stimulus plan.

Sigh. You guys saying Socialism is bad don't get it. Currently we have socialism for the rich and hard Capitalism for the rest. Sanders wants to redistribute wealth. i.e. real Socialism.

Oh, so we actually have a say who becomes the next POTUS?

I just can't believe that someone who has made a sizable living calling them all crooks is now supporting someone that wants to empower them.

Disgusted is too strong a word, maybe gravely disappointed is more appropriate.

Our CORRUPT federal government cannot be trusted to invest in the people in a socialist economy. Fix the corrupt federal government and perhaps socialism won't seem so scary to some people.

Also, Bernie claims to be a 'democratic socialist' and not a 'real socialist.'

ITA. I am just trying to figure out who will be foisted on us, at this point. I see no reason to invest any energy into supporting a candidate.

Who says anyone was overlooking corporate socialism?

And who has to believe that either one is a great thing?

Jessie you just turned me off to you forever. Bernie is not going to break the monopoly of the two party demo/repub style governorship. The socialists have captured the democrats and Bernie will be in their pockets mark my word. It will just before sacking of the middle class as his current proposals will reflect. Millions of average working people would have their retirement sacked and penalized with more taxation with his silly Robin Hood transaction tax. The bilderbergs in fact want that so is that what you want to see?

So true you said twice, and I starred you twice.

Dig the avatar. Where did you find that picture?

Years of misdirection has made it convenient for people to dismiss the fact that the founder of the Bilderberg Group, Joseph Retinger, was a Polish socialist (like Bernie) -- and he advocated Fabian socialism. The Elite are Fabian socialists.

So, if we have two parties infiltrated by Fabian socialists, we would not be privy to it. They operate covertly and reform government slowly -- one issue at a time. If all the stars and planets align to lead to a Bernie Sanders victory, I think it's a huge red flag.
