Now to be fair the reporter made no pretension of being anything but Liberally Biased, then again neither did the FOX news hosts or moderators.
with their soft ball questions.
Notice no one mentioned Hillary.

Same reporter interviewing Jeb Bush.

I agree with the kid in the Green jumper. Rand Paul the best bet.

Still the kids can see through Trumps BS.

Well, one day ever further in the future, when these kids hopefully can eat from their own pocket, the soviet socialistic style Sanders may not seem so fine choice.

I can eat from my own pocket and I am a Sanders supporter. You know, not everyone cares solely about their OWN paychecks and can think about issues pertaining to people other than themselves right?

The other thing is that Sanders style Socialism isn't anything even close to the Soviet one. Yet another person who doesn't really know what they're talking about.

I'd like to say I'm surprised.

Well... That is refreshing.

Some of those kids have a pretty well developed sense of things, and yet we are told that millennials in general are a group of feckless, shiftless, thoughtless Facebook zombies. Nice to see that the rumours are just that!

There are many of us whom are like that, many of us whom are not. You merely have to sift through the coal to find the diamonds. They are well hidden, but they are indeed there.

Still, I weep for those of us who have become as such. They are a product of their time, and of things far beyond their control - or mine. I was... Fortunate. Strictly speaking I am a millennial - barely yet eighteen - but my mind is and has always been, in another place. Somewhere else. The same, but different.

Day dreamers, we used to be called. Then it was lazy, followed later by "probably autistic".

I was like that when I was a young lad. Older than my years. These days, people just accuse me of being a young Gandalf, and leave it at that. What you are, is special. You have your head in several things at once, and all of them are deeper than the things people think they are teaching you. Never change, and always question the data you are fed. The world needs more folk like you.

What BS.....

Do you honestly think that a president can change the Corporate Oligarchy?

I am not lazy, I am apathetic. With despair from sole to head. I look to the world all around me, what I see just fills me with dread.

I am sincerely happy for your words, and the egotistical part of me most certainly reads them with great delight. However, there is one thing I would like to propose. I am not "special", I am "activated." Conveying this idea in eloquent detail is taxing, but I will attempt to do so. After much contemplation, I have come to the conclusion that the majority of our species possess the ability to become far much more than they are. I am only one of the lucky few who, through great serendipity, have been granted that "possibility" and have thus far followed the right thread. I am not yet what I wish to become. I am still highly flawed - narcissistic, envious, hubristic, apathetic, melancholic - the list goes on and on - but at some point in my life there awakened a desire, a " ravenous curiosity." "I want to see everything," is what I thought. "I want to be better. I want to be more. Surely this is not the end of my potential. I could be smarter, I could be kinder, I could be more understanding, I could be more graceful, I could speak in sharper words."
I think that everyone could be like that. I think they have only not been so fortunate as I.

Yet perhaps this is merely overt optimism, or perhaps it is simply conceit.

Hmm, this post will likely be quite embarrassing. It is fairly uncommon that I talk so much about myself, or in such... Stark detail. I was taken by a "mood", I suppose.

Sanders is more than a presidential candidate. He is an Idea. He is a Hope. He is the wind of change that will blow the curtains away and expose the lies that lay behind them.

This is a story with a foregone conclusion that reaches far beyond you or I. We are simply watching it unfold. This is History, and we are observing it be written before our eyes.

Well, that is just the point. The fact that you consider these things, are aware of your imperfections and unafraid of those imperfections, that you strive to better yourself by absorbing more data, more knowledge, and assimilate that knowledge into your outlook, is what makes you special. Your being aware enough to see these things at all marks you apart from many others, not just in your age group, but universally.

Never doubt that you are in a minority, and one to be proud of, in that regard.

Unfortunately as much I think of Sanders as the ideal politician from an outside perspective watching America from the UK, he just isn't going to cut it for the masses.

The reality is the majority of people are just too stupid, they'll buy into whatever crap they are fed by the loudest and most obnoxious speaker (in this case Trump) because they see that type of behaviour of being "Alpha" meaning top dog, so they think he is best to lead. Because he comes across as strong and powerful, someone who won't take any crap

Sanders on the other hand comes across as soft, caring and gentle, qualities we need in all our world leaders BUT unfortunately are deemed weaknesses by society in the grand scheme of things.

The election is a just a massive cliche of "The nice guy finishes last"

Sure the more refined and intelligent will look beyond the typical animalistic pack mentality and see that he (Trump) doesn't have much to offer beyond bravado, but those types are in the minority and even though the voting process is inherently flawed where it is based on regions instead of overall populace (like here in the UK, 48% is considered majority, go figure) I can't see a majority voting for Sanders, when he could be the best president since Lincoln

I am aware that I am in a minority, but the question to which the answer of I am currently searching for is "Why?" I have already established that the vast majority of people should have the same capacity as myself - though perhaps I am like a bird that wonders why the fish does not fly. That, too, is possible. It is, however, far too sad for me to yet consider.

It appears initially to be obvious, "some people just aren't like that, they're ignoramuses" but the more I contemplate the more I come to the conclusion that such is not the case. I simply cannot understand it, it seems so obvious. The "awareness" I possess should not be "special", it should be "regular."
Why are we cruel?
Why do we not seek to better ourselves?
Why is it that we are not so much more than what we are?
The embers are there, the sparks of potential are burning bright, but why is it that the kindling does not catch alight?
I do not comprehend it. It is alien to me. Why? Why? It's not only wrong, it's illogical. It doesn't make sense.
There must be some terrible truth I am missing. That is the only thing I can possibly believe

But I am tired, and ranting. Goodnight.

Sanders has to get elected. To do so, he first has to beat Hilary and then has to survive the convention. The party will determine the platform and Bernie will have to adjust his public persona to reflect that until he is elected. Bernie is really stubborn and may not make it in a brokered convention. He is like the Tea Party in that he doesn't seem ready to negotiate. If he is elected, will the GOP Congress let him do anything? He can have all the wonderful ideas in the world but, as is often said, the ship of state is slow to change course.

I still think Warren will be the VP candidate regardless of whether Bernie or Biden runs. I don't think she'd go for VP with Hilary and Hilary wouldn't want a female VP anyway for tactical reasons. The VP spot would set her up for POTUS after maybe a term wears out either of the others.

Well adults generally said that about every generation of young folks that they are slackers and what not.

It only seemed like that because Trump is in the headlines and so are his supporters most people are not Mercians!! I think most are Americans.

I don't think you understand. He already has been elected. It is a foregone conclusion, and we are merely waiting for reality to catch up.
