Bernie Sanders has managed to generate a lot of wealth for himself during his crusade against the "one percent." The self-proclaimed democratic socialist has raised 26 million dollars in voluntary donations. Bernie sure has gained a lot from capitalism for a socialist. Bernie Sanders likes to speak about the greed of the one percent and the fat cat capitalist profiting of the explotation of others. However, Bernie could of helped feed 107,928 starving children with these proceeds. It is time to expose the hypocrisy of Bernie and his supporters. Bernie Sanders supporters are not just economically illiterate, but they are hypocrites.
Sanders is willing to spread everyone elses wealth at gunpoint, but he is unwilling to redistribute his own wealth. Check out this article to learn more:

You have also successfully described most, if not every single communist party member in the Chinese (PRC) communist party.
They don't even believe in the crud they swear to abide by. They only pretend to so they can make a lot of money.
Chairman Mao and subsequent commies in Chinese government have all sent their own kids to live in the USA and go to school over here because life is better here. You would think if they really valued communism they would never want their children learning and enjoying our American way of life. But they certainly do.

It is funny how only the right wing blog sites are putting Sander's wife at the stake when she had the boards confidence at the time.

Did she mess up? Sounds like it, good think it isn't her running for president huh

This is unrealistic, if he wants to run for President, he needs to have funds. Once he is President he can make changes that affect the lives of others in a positive manner.

The others are right, leave the poor guy alone.

As an expert in Human Development, I watched the
debate with the sound off to evaluate body language
and physical condition of the candidates.

There are 3 categories of old
young old
old old

Movement between categories is not really
based on actual years but on physical traits.
actual years do play a part but physical
traits play a larger part. These categories
also give one an indication of lifespan.

Bernie is entering the old old category.
While Biden who is very close to Bernie's birthday age
is still in young old (I've seen him enough other
places to make the comparison)
Hillary is in the old category.

Bernie held on to the podium for support
and gripped it tight for support.
He fumbled and had to search below the
podium for what he fumbled (the camera
was on Hillary but it could be seen in
a far left small part of the picture)
Bernie on a long shot to commercial
actually cupped his ear and leaned forward.
Bernie either didn't hear or didn't get one
of Coopers questions and had him repeat it.
His thinning and uncontrollable hair along
with coming perilously close to drooling
many times show that his physical condition
is entering old old.

All this adds up to,
he most likely will not survive one term as President.

Presidents normally age 10 or more years
per term. Bernie's physical condition
means he would probably not last the stress
of a full term. I can say with a fair amount
of certainty that he would not last 2 terms.
I would put his physical age
at around early 80's based on what I saw in
the debate.

So leave the poor guy alone, and pay
close close attention to who he chooses
as VP.

In case you wonder, Hillary's condition
is close to her birthday age, maybe a few
more years, close to the same as
Biden's birthday age.

Biden on the other hand is much
younger physically than his birthday
age by about 10 years.

Hillary is in her late 60's, birthday wise
Biden and Bernie in their early 70's, birthday wise;
I estimate, and this is a gross estimate
(not to be considered accurate since I
don't know other details about their health)
Biden's physical condition age (not birthday age) 65
Hillary's physical condition age, 73
Bernie's physical condition age, 82

Your post makes no sense! LOL! Except to say that you are probably a conservative who sees Bernie's popularity as a YOOGE threat to the Donald.

Election donations from the people of the US are not considered 'personal wealth'. It will be spent on the campaign. In fact, every other candidate, D or R, is MUCH more wealthy than Bernie. Bernie's net worth is about $460,000. Source

And this is the like of thing he does:

Bernie Rejects Donation from Drug CEO

Senator Bernie Sanders says he doesn't want the $2,700 campaign donation from the pharma drug executive he once called the "poster child of greed," but he won't give it back either.

Instead, Sanders said he is sending a check for the same amount to the Whitman-Walker Heath, a clinic in Washington, D.C.

Bern, Baby, Bern!

Good lord, you make it sound like Bernie had to use a walker to get to the podium. I can show you a hundred photos of him at a podium where he isn't holding on for dear life.

If you don't mind, I'd rather wait for a real doctor to assess his health after a thorough professional examination, not just some random person who watches TV with the sound off.

I wonder if people are that worried about previous candidates who have created wars; killing and displacing millions.

I don't hear any people, I hear birds chirping.

What a sad, feable attempt at an attack.

I had not heard of this until last night. I followed the bread crumbs posted by another member and found the information. I am not attacking Bernie. As I said in my post, until last night I had a fair amount of respect for Bernie even though I disagree with him. Don't blame me for following up on information someone else provided. It's not my fault the information provided is factual.

The shear amount of national debt this man is going to generate is going to be amazing to see. I'll grab some marshmallows to watch Rome burn.

Better to vote for a Pro American against Crony Capitalism like Bernie than a vote for A Globalist Multinational supporting Fascist of which DC is infested with.

Can Crony Capitalists be successful without buying our government?

His plan isn't just to write blank checks for this stuff, he is going to raise taxes but on the top 1-2% of the richest people and start taxing wall street.

No it's not your fault, I'm just calling it for how I see it.

Start countless wars, rack up the national deficit, send kids overseas, privatize healthcare, pass and continue draconian legislature, appoint former lobbyists to government seats, and last but not least - arm, train, and fund "moderate rebels" (who aren't terrorists) who then become terrorists so then arm, train, and find more "moderate rebels" (who aren't terrorists) - and you're up for re-election! Nobel peace prizes!

It's a laughing stock, man, and compared to some of the chicken-hawks who profit off of human suffering, this really shouldn't have much of an effect in my opinion.

In the game of politics, mud-slinging is about the spine of all issues and matters.

I don't see anyone talking about Jeb Bush's family dynasty and connections with the Nazi's, how Trump has cozy relations with the Clintons, or how Hilary has been involved in scandals since the '70's - but people have to find that dirt on Bernie.

At least have some logical consistency and include ALL running candidates portfolio of BS and corruption.

Obama can't run again

I'm quite aware of the two-term presidential limit?

What point are you trying to make?

(I voted for Gary Johnson in '12 and wasn't old enough in '08)

So again, your point? I wouldn't vote for Obummer for reasons having nothing to do with him personally. He stands for all that is wrong with America, big government, big corporations that write their own legislation - that can testify in court regarding profit-margins being downgraded due to environmental restrictions/regulations - the continuation of, how many wars again? the NDAA, the Patriot Act, the illegilization of marihuana despite how many states legalizing it? And I could list some more if you'd like.

Again, what was your point?

Even more so, he has proposed to restrict corporations from hoarding their profits in off-shore accounts that legally don't have to be taxed by the U.S. Government, that way that money has to be taxed.

After all, the same people who believe in and support Reagononics, trickle-down theory, seem to have no quarrel with "the wealthy job creators," not investing their money into the American economy. How is that wealth supposed to "trickle-down" when it's not even a part of our economy, and is legally protected?

The same people who claim that government-welfare and the likes are the burden on our economy, yet still support and buy from Wal-Mart - who pays at minimum wage, mostly part-time, and still has over half of its full-time workforce on government assistance.

So then these people say, "go to college to get a better job than entry-level, low paying," yet fail to see the expensives needed to afford and pursue a higher education.

The "bootstrap" crowd is tried and dried, and it resulted in a national deficit of $18 trillion.

And these same people think that the system is working.

We need change.

I don't disagree with you! Everything you said is absolutely true but this particular thread is about Bernie and since he is married, his wife and her baggage gets included. Each candidate could have their own thread airing all their dirty laundry and I would probably post on each one about how corrupt and greedy they are but bringing those issues to this thread is called 'thread drift'. I'll stick to the subject of this thread for now and when those other threads are posted I will happily agree with you about the Bush family or Rubio or Clinton. I'm an equal opportunity politician basher!

I would say that it is best to not vote at all.

posted on Oct, 17 2015 @ 08:40 PM
a reply to: jacobe001 I would say it is best to not vote at all. And since when was Bernie pro American? If anything his platform would cost so much he would bankrupt America and drive it into the ground. None of the politicians are looking out for the interest of the American public.

Oh wow. Look everyone. Another lame Attack on Sanders by a new member. Can you say Troll Thread???

If this is the best you can do you need to try harder. Bernie raised campaign money!! OOoooohhhhh, what a scandal.


So running a clean old school campaign and collecting individual donations the hard way to fund your campaign makes him a 1%er and all his supporters hypocrites now???

Damn, that's a weak argument. Even from a troll.

And you know what he's going to do with all that money he raises? Probably turn it into a PAC and give it to Clinton when she is given the Democratic nomination for president.

All politicians are hypocrites, that's the only failure in your argument. ALL. None of them have our best interest at heart.
