What a narrow perspective you have. Bernie is a socialist which means bigger gov't which means you can never end corruption?

You're a glass is half empty kinda person. That, and you're always gonna be resistant because of your political bias. This response of yours I would totally expect.

Who are you rooting for? Trump? Cruz? What do you think they're gonna do to fight corruption? You really think the gov't won't continue to expand under a Republican pres? Oh please!

So things will get better under Bernie?

Why? Because he said so?

Because those that endorse him said so?

Wait a minute...I'm trying to remember......let's see......8 years ago I seem to remember a politician promising the same thing....yah, it was all about "Hope and Change".......

And look where we're sitting. Enjoying that transparency now?

It really won't mater who wins. Anyone promising you anything right now is full of crap. Full of cow manure. Promises by any politician is nothing more than a tool to get one popular for the dullards that buy into those promises and will vote for them.

Any political figure's promises are worth as much as a tin penny....actually, they are not even worth that.

It won't mater who gets elected. They will be looking out for those with the money, and themselves.

Period.

Anyone that thinks otherwise are deluding themselves. The only promises that any politician keeps are those they've made privately with their financial backers. The ones that spent their money to get their person into power.

Bernie isn't promising a damn thing, period, other than promising to fight for us, and asking for our help to make that happen.

Unlike Obama who took super-PACS and was a corporate stooge all along, Bernie refuses to let them collar him that way like a common domesticated corporate/banker dog.

Bernie, unlike Obama is realistic, he tells us what he wants to do, what he stands for, what can be done to make it happen, and admits that without our support, not just during this election, but in electing our representatives and demanding our representatives support him, this can't happen.

He's not just throwing empty promises he knows he can't fulfill, he's promising to fight WITH our support to make these changes happen. Obama was "Hope and Change." That's not what Bernie is actually representing and calling for.

Bernie is far closer to "Political Revolution" which requires us to continue fighting after the election, which he knows and admits and calls for. He's not just making promises to get elected, he's making the call to political arms. This is a nonviolent attempt at a political revolution, not just "hope and change" could it flop? Of course it can, without our support it will flop. Which Bernie has straight up said.

So you support Trump and his wall because you think he will be better for your wallet? You know what's bad for your wallet? War. Right now we're spending over 14 million a minute in the Middle East and if a conservative gets back into power war will be on.

I'll vote for the guy who doesn't jump to war and voted against Iraq.

You can't compare Sanders to Obama. That's literally comparing apples to oranges. If you want the same old same old then by all means for the war mongering puppets and I'm sure things will get better...

No indication Trump would be out there fighting imperialistic wars as past presidents have, but regardless, you're wrong. The American economy grows massively and the middle class have historically made a ton of money during wars. This wasn't the case during the latest Iraq war, but we fought that war like morons, not really trying to win so much as trying to level their country then rebuild it at taxpayer cost... as if that was magically going to make the US popular in Iraq. Trump, if he did get us into a war, would fight smart... destroy everything in your path and let them deal with the aftermath, reconstruction, etc. US dollars should NEVER be wasted rebuilding our enemies.

Yep and the only reason I've crawled out of the political grave I buried myself in when my belief in any political change via politics died. Bernie being beholden to us and no one else has brought me and many others back to life.

If you are voting for someone because "Flea" backs them, you are a moron.
