Questions you might want to ask yourself...

1.Is Sanders Pro Socialism?

2.Who does he work for?

3.Who does he answer to?

4.Does he bend over for people like Soros? and Is he an Old Boys Club Member looking for Brownie Points just like every other 'past President'?

If you answered Yes to any of these, then it's time to question what you believe is the truth and what your values are.

I'm definitely all for Bernie Sanders as president - He gets my vote, and I'm constantly alerting others around me about him if they aren't in the know about him and the issues he represents.

One question - Isn't FDR one of the guys that F**ked our nation, when it comes to banks? I thought he essentially banned private ownership of gold and bailed out the federal reserve - The federal reserve being one of the biggest problems/inequality of today ( ownership by global elites and all.. ) ? Correct me if I'm getting my history lesson wrong or mixed up, and I realize the quote is still a good one, but definitely not a good man to emulate if I'm thinking of history in the right context.

"Socialism" has been used in many different contexts thee days.

He is not for government ownership of businesses, goods, land, etc.

He is for equality, equality that's legislated rather than "natural", because the "natural" route is NOT working. We are promised trickle down when businesses thrive - But even when they pay NEGATIVE taxes ( corporate subsidies ) the average does NOT see the money.

I believe that if anything, this shows how dissatisfied the American people are with the political process, on both sides of the aisle. To have candidates like Donald Trump and Bernie Sanders gain so much support is unprecedented. But please young people!! Don't fall for it, anything that starts out as a "bern" ends up an itchy rash, maybe if its really bad some sort of discharge..

There's nothing to "fall for."
Either he wins, or he doesn't. Neither outcome changes the facts.....

and also -
trying to dissuade "young people" at this point is a futile endeavor.
They're already hooked. Because they have integrity, and know what they believe.....and Bernie speaks to it.

Questions you might want to ask yourself...

Already have, but - sure, let's review:



1.Is Sanders Pro Socialism?

As was stated above - the definition is what matters. He is "pro democratic social safety net" and "pro private property"...... So - nice try, but he's no Communist, and doesn't want government to "own everything." So: no, not the kind that many try to pin on him.


2.Who does he work for?

Currently, the people of Vermont.


3.Who does he answer to?

Currently, the people of Vermont.


4.Does he bend over for people like Soros?

No.


and Is he an Old Boys Club Member looking for Brownie Points just like every other 'past President'?

No.


If you answered Yes to any of these, then it's time to question what you believe is the truth and what your values are.


If you think any of those questions would be answered "yes" (not all of which were 'yes' or 'no' questions) or point to big-money lobbying, then -- sage advice though it might be you are trying to offer -- , it doesn't apply.

Last night he reached 3,000,000 (Three Million) contributions from the public.....
no SuperPACs, no corporate donors, just regular people who aren't afraid to try what works in so many other countries as an alternative to what is not working here.

So, how about you answer the questions you asked? Show us your assessment....
as in: "here are my answers to the questions I asked above."

Your turn.
Go.

Amusing...


...in a rather pathetic way.

The young grew up in a broken US of A and they see what needs to be done to fix it for all future Americans, rather than our continued subservience to the 1%.

Feel the Bern!

a reply to: BuzzyWigs>>> I gave a protest vote for Ralph Nader when he ran as an independent. Not that I thought he would make a good President and wasn't way too liberal,but he was the only honest guy running and wasn't compromised. This Sanders is similar, maybe he's more of a political animal and part of the problem and has some truly warped views but I don't think he's compromised like Hillary. The same goes fro Trump. He might be legit. I hope he's not just out for a big payoff( like Al Gore was) and isn't a sell out like John McCain was. An honest crazy beats a sane crook anyday. And after 16 years of a stooge ( make that 24) who isn't supposed to do anything but sign whatever they tell him to, a loose canon that bucks the system is needed.

I believe he is aware that the time has come for this storm to dump rain on the parade of the status quo. He has also made a speech about how no one person - not ANY person who is elected - can do anything at all without bipartisan discussion.

It's been going on for 3 generations now....first his, then mine (the Boomers), and now the Millennials.....
what's new is social media. But of course, you know that. I understand that he's asking to be put in the amphitheatre with the lions (or worse, "Monday Night Rehabilitation").....but the support he's getting is truly phenomenal.






Phenomenal support on social media ?

Let us know where to find it, cause no one can see that either.

I think you are abit excited about this, in fact it can be seen that actually the millennials really could care less about the entire event.

Furthermore, why do you think social media is somehow going to overthrow the entire system dedicated to NOT doing what people like Sanders are saying is good for the country, and yet what would be bad for all those currently in power, and who have trillions of dollars on the line.

I marvel at the fact that you think the system that has brought not ONCE a victory in these areas, will somehow now because people post on social media somewhere.

I marvel at how you can pretend to be unaware of the size of the crowds this man is attracting, and the fact that he has had Three Million individuals contribute to his campaign.

You don't have to like it - or want to - you just have to recognize it.

Why are you surprised? He is as much an outsider to the establishment as Ted Cruz is. Honestly Rubio made the best comment of the night on the GOP debate.


He's been in Congress for 26 years, has caucused with the Dems for every one of those years, and has been endorsed by Democrats. How is that an 'outsider to the establishment'?

The closest comparison to an elected politician who was an outsider to DC politics would be Obama, to be honest. But Chicago politics is its own establishment.

He's nothing to ignore, and Rubio may have to face him. How would he beat him on policies?


Simple. Ask him 'how do you pay for that?' and 'why do you think the American people want to be taxed so much?'

No. I would vote for a three-year expired can of cream of asparagus before voting for Sanders as President. Or Trump, which is about as bad.

And he says "you pay for it by imposing a fraction of a percent tax on Wall Street speculative transactions."



Gah!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

You know what? You're deliberately obfuscating, and deliberately IGNORING the available information.

You know what that is called?

DISINFORMATION.
SPIN.

and if you're just truly that unaware, it is called:

WILLFUL IGNORANCE

Yes, I marvel at the substandard education that the youth have been exposed to. Good job, Department of Education! We have an entire generation of non-critical thinking useful idiots, just as planned.
