Indeed he did, not just beating them, crushing them all.




It seems many on ATS that supported Ron have gone over to Trump or Sanders, only a few support his son.
These types of websites don't represent the general populace, look who actually won he was at 2% (Mitt)
Santorum was at .46% and he won Iowa.


There are a lot of foreigners who cannot even vote represented in this poll and pile them on with the hate America socialists you find posting in every topic and you get Bernie Sanders numbers.

Nope similar numbers in different poles are reflected among likely registered voters , and IMO ATSrs are perhaps slightly more Conservative than average.

WHO IN THEIR RIGHT MIND WANTS THAT COMMIE SANDERS IN THE WH?

ARE YOU PEOPLE INSANE?!


Definitely not people who haven't learned what communism is. Most of them would be voting for Trump if they could - but those who haven't made it to the grade in elementary school where you learn about different forms of government aren't old enough to vote.

You would be right if Burnie was a.....COMMIE!! but he is not and many here with a high school to college education knows the different and will never conflate democratic socialism with Communism.

I would deduce that would mean a big slice of the poll voters want to see (Ta-Da)
Sanders finish off the USA in a one term: Coup de Gras

Bernie wants to expand social programs, he also wants to increase taxes to pay for it. But when you pay taxes, those taxes dont go to the debt. They pay for interest on the debt. So if he gets his way, the national debt will increase exponentially. He wants to expand these social programs like his new healthcare plan. That alone is going to speed up the amount the USA borrows. Its bad now, he'll only make it worse. This will also flood the market with printed monies. Each dollar that is printed, makes the next dollar even worth less.

Lets say you have 20 dollars. That 20 dollars next year will be worth (for example purposes) 19 dollars. You still have 20 dollars, but it only has the purchasing power of 19. Now fast forward 10 or 20 years. Your 20 dollars today will be worth 5 dollars 20 years from now.

20-30 years ago you could fill your shopping cart with 20 dollars. Now you need like 100 to match what you couldve purchased today. That's the hidden tax. You think his plan is great and all, but its long term effects will hurt everyones wallet. Socialism lite like america has today like you said is true. We have it, its also one of the reasons why the dollar is worth less and less each year. Bernie wants to accelerate it to insane levels.

So again, i stand where i stand. No. No more new spending for social programs We need to balance the budget, pay off the debt, and let the free markets, free trade, and capitalism do the rest.


It is true that increases in the monetary supply decrease the value of the dollar, but right now? If we hadn't had all of that "quantitative easing", the dollar would be far too strong for the good of the economy, and it's still rising RAPIDLY. There's multiple sides to the equation regarding dollar value and inflation. A couple of the other major considerations are DEMAND and RELATIVITY (to other world currencies.)

20-30 years ago you could fill your shopping cart with more like $150. Complete and total elimination of "Social Programs" wouldn't even balance the budget and "Free Trade" doesn't help US Workers one bit, but it does help US corporations earn additional money by outsourcing their manufacturing jobs to other nations where labor is cheap.

I didn’t vote seeing as I would not have had the vote in the USA so seems bad form for me to vote here.

But I am disappointed Rand Paul is so low as he seems the most level headed of the candidates.

Interesting. What, exactly, is a "hate america Socialist"? LOL

I like Bernie Sanders but I'm not a stereotypical socialist or a communist. I don't think Sander's hates America, I think he wants to make it better by trying to do what's good for the poor and working class.

Give me someone else running for president now, that loves America more? Trump? He loves money. Doesn't care one bit for poor people. Cruz? Nope. Carson, maybe but would he love me if I told him I'm not a Christian? Would I be a second class cititzen in his eyes? Hillary? Nope. Bush? Nope. Graham? Nope. There's just not a whole lot of good people running.

All the presidential Candidates are going to raise taxes on both sides. The difference between sanders and them is sander's isn't lying.

Somewhere i read some really interesting definitions of the word "Santorum", it would be against the T&C's to post them here though.

Communism and Socialism are very similar. To me they're all Commies.

This poll means nothing without a "None of the above/abstain" choice.

Now, if the poll said, "Who would you vote for if I held a gun to your head", then maybe I'd make a choice.

For those who don't see the poll options you probably have to enable tracking. On Firefox you have to click the security icon on the far left side of the URL bar and click "Disable protection for this site". Use at your own risk. Firefox automatically blocks website tracking now for your protection so you have to enable it on each page you visit where it requires it.
Once I did that the page refreshed and showed the poll choices.

Automatic and Semi-automatic are very similar. To me they're all automatic.

Change the subject, see how absolutely ridiculous that logic is?

Nice analogy. To take it a bit further: Pedophiles and someone who likes children are similar. To me, they're all pedophiles.

Anyway, Socialism 'aint Communism, yada yada.

I don't really like Winston Churchill.
