I am still trying to figure out how Sanders can run as a Democrat when he is a self claimed socialist.


How can he claim to be a true Progressive, when as a registered Democrat, the Democrat Party and the DNC takes big money from banking firms and corporate donors.



Well... just because you've been told Progressive means something other than it's actual definition doesn't mean it's so. It's another broad word but generally in America it means a person who believes that government should work for all people to the betterment of society.

Just going by Bernie's words to Hillary from last night:

"I do not know any progressive who has a super PAC and takes $15 million from Wall Street", Sanders told CNN moderator Anderson Cooper on Wednesday night."


Doesn't the Democrat Party and the DNC get money from Wall Street?...and Isn't Sanders a member of the Democrat Party?

Bernie has already said that when congress refuses to act he will use presidential executive orders to accomplish his goals.

Someone doesn't want Hilary to become POTUS. Why else would all these stories regarding e-mails be out in the public domain?

She will be strong until the end, she's a Bilderberg, she has support in high places.

All will be forgiven. Right?

Nope.
We're out of forgiveness......!!!!!!

But doesn't he enjoy all the rights and privileges of membership in an organization heavily funded by Wall Street and big corporate interests? These days he's got a capital (D) after his name; Isn't he indirectly benefiting from Wall Street money through his association and membership with the Democrat Party?

Seeing this new poll all over this morning, put a huge smile on my face!

After the first two Dem debates, I checked my google news and not a mention of Sen Sanders. The second debate the headline was Hillary crossed swords with her opponents and came away with a victory.

We have come along way and MSM is finding it harder, to just ignore Sen Sanders and his supporters.

What rights and privileges are you even talking about?

In case you hadn't noticed, the entire DNC is supporting Hillary Clinton!

Do you mean he gets to enjoy the privilege of having the DNC do everything in their power to see that he's defeated?

He has use of the DNC voter data, for this access they charge a percent of his donations.

So he is paying the DNC for their service, no freebie from Wall Street!

Nice try! (:

The conservatives are running scared of Bernie now. The fear tactic of evil "socialism" threads have started. Not surprising!

Then what's the point of having separation of powers? Why don't we just elect a king if its fine to undermine the constitution.

I'm not sure what rights and privileges you're talking about. The Democratic Party is becoming as Wall Street as the Republican Party but in the Senate, Bernie wouldn't enjoy whatever perks you're talking about because he isn't affiliated with the Party at all.

As for a Presidential campaign his decision to run on the Democrat ticket had nothing to do with money it had to do with not dividing non-GOP voters because when that happens no one but the GOP benefits. The reverse is true also.

Bernie is against the Super Pacs.

But some of the Super Pacs are "supporting" him with some big outside dough-ray-me.

There are some

What's unconstitutional about Executive Orders? And how does using them go against Separation of Powers? The Power of the Supreme Court of the United States is that they can negate a law. Any law, including Executive Orders. That keeps both the Executive and Legislative in check. Their power is limited by their inability to create law.

Franklin D. Roosevelt issued 3,522 Executive Orders


Just think what President Sanders could do!

The Supreme Court can only challenge an executive order if congress asks them too and the SC chooses to take the case ( they've only ever challenged 2) Congress does not have any power over EOs the only thing they can do is defund the EO that the pres signs, but he can in turn veto the defunding.

So my question is when does it stop? It might be a candidate that you support but would you still support rule by executive fiat if it was an ultra right winger? what if they reversed gay marriage, the ACA, the keystone pipeline and affirmative action?
Would you still sit back, shrug your shoulders and say "oh well." That's what the libs are doing now, but I don't think they understand the slippery slope that Obama has created.
