How about this - you STOP telling lies about what he stands for --


Sure thing. Just as soon as Trump critics and Right wing critics stop spreading theirs.

uhm.....
I've been watching the debates.
I've been reading transcripts.

I even clicked on the "Infowars" interview.


So - if you'd like, kindly explain what am I not understanding about Trump.

So it looks like Saunders is the Democrat's "Tea Party " candidate.
At least as "Tea Party" is meant by the psudo-libertarian set.

Chris Matthews vs. Debbie Wasserman Schultz: "What's The Difference Between A Democrat And A Socialist?

Answer: None.

Only difference is Sanders is out of the closet.

So, now we have the same demograph of people who constantly whine and bicker about others "wanting teh free stuffs," - which isn't even true - complaining because they don't get why THEY want?

Oh my goodness - this election cycle is absolute golden.

There's a big difference between a democratic socialist and a communist, however.
You know that (or you should by now).

Would you like sources?

Here: I went to all this trouble, just for you.

Defining Capitalism, Communism, Fascism, Socialism

Accept it or not.
Up to you.
No worries, I probably won't get what I want (which is: for you and other benighted readers to investigate this stuff.)

At least I tried.

Again.

If you're talking about "Democrat" as in the party, then you're definitely right. The democrat party is extremely socialist, they just make sure the wealth flows up, not down. Though I'll mention that both parties are equally guilty of this. Reagan started the trend, after all.

$110 Billion.
To just 965 companies.

You also always forget to mention the gap between pure Socialism, and what Bernie is, which is a hybrid blend of Socialism and Capitalism.

Pure Socialism is definitely bad, I agree with that.
Pure Capitalism is also extremely bad.
Bernie is neither.

How about just link one of the fifty+ times Bernie Sanders has explicitly stated exactly what "Democratic Socialism," entails and means, and how it's not "Communism."

Attempting to explain the difference to the two to a Republican is about as intelligent as teaching someone who does not use a vaporizer the difference between Nickel/Titanium and standard coils.

They just "aren't going to get it," and won't care that they don't get it.

It's willful ignorance, and don't misconstrue me - it is not isolated to the right-wing, it's the entire bird that constantly #s all over America.

Hey, knock yourself out. Tired now -

I've posted bunches of them.

I've posted links and sources, and sites, and quotes, and videos.


Go ahead, please try.
Eventually, they might get it.

I'll try to regather my energy......

No one is telling lies regarding Trump.

It's not my fault the dude wants to bang his daughter, and that I think it's disgusting and provides a great basis for a many of hilarious jokes!

It wasn't my idea to "build a wall," or "make Muslims were ID badges."

Trump's very own words, gestures, and policies are what people are making fun of him for.

Many aren't telling lies, they're just talking about the ridiculous crap that comes out of his mouth.

I'm speaking liberal ephimistically in order to ask a question.
They are diametrically opposed I agree but it show a split in the Democrats like tea party candidates have done to the Rinos

LOL But why would someone else's actions dictate whether or not you can tell the truth? Just asking.

I am not going to silence my criticism of Sanders or the Clintons.

I don't go around telling people to basically amounts to 'shut up' because I don't like what they are saying.

Adults don't do that.

And we don't want you to. It's just that Trump has some issues that some of us think make him a bad Candidate or that might make him a worse president than Sanders.

Man, I've tried.

You may find this entertaining...

m.youtube.com...

"What Republicans hear," if you cannot laugh at this video, I feel bad for you.

And to cross the full spectrum, many people cannot even mention Trump without being labeled a "Nazi, xenophobic, racist," whatever it may be.

But the thing is, Trump has made that bed for himself to sleep in.

Bernie Sanders, however, has taken much heat and criticism by people who simply don't understand - or don't want to understand - his policies, because (gasp), the word socialism is in there.

I have compiled a list of thirty+ currently operating Socialist programs in the United States;

Public schools
Public libraries
Garbage pick-up/disposal
FBI/CIA/other alphabet agencies
Medicare
Highways/Interatates/Roads
Military/Defense
Police
Fire Department
Bridges
Postal Service
EPA
Museums
Social Security
- Business/corporate subsidies
- Jail/Prison system
All elected government officials
Sewer system
G.I Bill
Court System
City/State zoos
The Pentagon
FDA
State construction
- Corporate bailouts/welfare
State snow removal
FEMA

And if pressed, I could give at least twenty more.

All of these are socialist programs - notice how suddenly no one is associating these programs with full-blown communism, as (in some parallel dimension), Democratic Socialism is synonymous with Communism.

Many Republicans favored government programs such as police, military, prison, corporate welfare/bailouts, are Socialist in nature, yet they have no quarrel.

Many of these programs simply assist in the everyday lives of all Americans - regardless of race, gender, ethnicity, party-affiliation, what color your underwear is, etc etc.

I have tried, and TRIED, to shake it into people that Socialist programs have existed (and were implemented) under Republican cabinets... and that socialism is a very real, everyday part of America that everyone loves, and appreciates.

(THANK GOD FOR SNOW REMOVAL IN CENTRAL ILLINOIS)

No one but yourself has told you to "shut up," go play the victim card somewhere else.

Just as many won't stop their criticism to a potential presidential candidate who would like to have sexual relations with his daughter.

I would say, "adults don't do that," but clearly - I have no idea what it means to be an adult.

I'm having a hard time seeing this as having any meaning as far as the election is concerned. A poll of people in the tank for the beliefs of a small group is not informative in my opinion.

Sanders is not going to get the nomination, so this means nothing in the end I'm afraid.

With over 270,000 people polled, I would say this is a decent insight into the American populace, as opposed to "polls," on MSM consisting of maybe one to two thousand people.

How do you know Sanders won't get the nomination? Can you predict the future?

In the age of corporate-owned and influenced government/media, I would absolutely be surprised to see Sanders win the nomination, but that just gives even more reason why he should be a serious candidate.

This is a pretty good illustration of that.

@Neo: The issue I have isn't with you criticising Sanders or Clinton. The issue I have is that you seem to criticise them while making statements that are just... Well, wrong.
