The more right wing hit pieces we get on Bernie the more I think he's the right candidate this nation needs, his platforms remind me a lot of FDR and Teddy Roosevelt's platforms to restore the faith of people. This nation desperately needs a president that will slash military spending and invest it right back into our infrastructure and schools.

He's the only candidate that hasn't relied on smear campaigns against his opponents, he doesn't need to rile his base up by telling them how many groups of people he's going to round up and deport, he doesn't rely on hate to appeal to voters and I think that's why neocons and right wingers hate him so much. He's not about war, he's not about hate, and he's not about fear.



Instead of a constant stream of hit pieces on Bernie from the right, why don't they tell us who the better alternatives are?

Bush?
Trump?
Jindal?
Fiorina?

When they have to rely on untruthful smear pieces to make their side look better, it says a lot.



The fact that they're constantly attacking him is proof that they're taking him seriously. I don't hear them saying crap about O'Malley. lol

Also, they don't have better alternatives because they want to maintain the status quo. After all these years of attacking the ACA/"Obamacare", what alternative have they presented to provide health insurance for the Americans who'd lose their coverage if the ACA was repealed?

They just want to keep things as they are, since their corporate masters are making a killing under the status quo. That's the real reason why this Congress keeps focusing on issues that will never pass. They provide the illusion of "fighting against something" while actually making sure the business environment stays the same for their masters.

(And for the record, Hillary and the national Democratic establishment serve the same powerbrokers.)

The only reason I'd want to see Sanders become president is to watch people from BLM make him step aside and take over while making his inauguration speech....

And what would you classify private healthcare as?



And that doesn't include all of the subsidies private for profit healthcare companies receive from the very same tax payers they are fleecing

Bernie is definitely a breath of fresh air and neocons are terrified of him...that's enough for me to conclude that he would make a great president.


I am wholly non-partisan and cynical of both parties and I am terrified of Bernie. Why? Because I have been around long enough to realize that you don't even get to be a contender for one of the two parties unless you are willing to serve the completely untransparent global Establishmment.

On behalf of nonpartisans everywhere -- thank yooooou to the partisans who operate solely on hate and the enjoyment of the misery of other Americans simply because they root for the 'wrong' team. *heavy sarcasm*

Muse ?

The largest health care provider there is currently is the US Government.

Medicare/Medicaid/VA.

There is no single 'private' health insurance corporation that has over 100 million people on their sheets.

That is a monopoly already.

I am going to whole heartedly agree with you, not terrified of Bernie, but terrified of the whole process.

l Bernie is although a man of integrity, he too can be easily manipulated if somehow pulls through as the POTUS anyway.



Bernie may not be the man of integrity you believe him to be. In my experience, no candidate is the product they advertised. I have to go with that over the impressions of his supporters. I have to.

Once you see the truth, you cannot unsee it.

Maybe his donors sucked because during his 30 years as a Senator he NEVER sponsored a bill? As far as I am aware his biggest accomplishment as an INDEPENDENT, was he caucused with the Democrats.

Show me a bill he sponsored to benefit our country that fell in line with our Constitution. Bet you can't find one, cause I sure as hell can't!

WTF? 30 years as a politician and nothing! I guess term limits are DEFINATELY IN ORDER?



You can't be serious.

Really?? Then why would those same corporations give him the money in the first place? After all, he's a long time, self-announced socialist....unless of course his rhetoric will not harm them whatsoever as it's no better and as much B.S. as the rest of them....

Apparently your math is messed up, that would be less than 1/3 of the US population, not sure how you define that as a monopoly.

Because I actually served my country, I don't have to look up VA, they send it to me every year. To give VA some kudos, my care at VA has been awesome.

Because they think he may get traction and may have an in with him? That's the Washington 2 Step. Doesn't mean he's going to dance. Well, until he gets shot.

Huh? Trump has the most support out of all of the Republican candidates. Therefore, people are taking him seriously and are attacking him to try to take down his candidacy. That goes perfectly with what I said.

Did you, by any chance, narrow your 356 results down to the six passed by the House, resolved, and enacted?

There is not one profoundly novel, powerful, innovative, or helpful piece of legislation among them.

He inspired nothing in our corrupt, uninspired Congress. Bernie doesn't have my confidence and that is a fair statement, not a malicious smear.
