The only reason that's to his advantage is because it makes the people at the bottom stupid enough to think that Bernie can confiscate enough from the ones at the top to give them all that stuff for free.


Politics is a game of perception. It's in Bernie's favor. The GOP is scared ****less of Sanders message/game. He would be a fool not to use his HUGE political trump card.

Trump plays the tough guy perception game, Cruz plays the "chosen by God" game...see what I mean?

Intellectual Honesty in politics.....

You can almost hear the inflation growing and the prices rising along with the bureaucracy.

How many 'Bernie for Prez.' Rah-Rah threads does this make so far today?

OP...99.9% of all liberal/Democrat/Progressive/Socialist/Communists on ATS are already Sandernistas (except for those two Hillary lovers).


Nobody forces you to click on any Bernie threads.

I'm not really a believer of Bigfoot but I don't go into any new Bigfoot threads complaining about them

Do you think the Republicans will fix all that?

Conservatives say they want to make America great again.

To make America great again we need to go back to the things that MADE America great again, and those things include living wages, and raising taxes on corporations and CEO's.

This experiment of trickle down economics does not work, these past 30 years are proof of that.

I don't. Politicians should stay out of the economy.

But they don't...

The Republicans use war to pump up the economy and the Democrats use social programs. Take your pick....

I'm surprised you haven't noticed....

It just might.

Soar momentarily as inflation goes out of control, mortgage rates skyrocket and then crash and burn. Inject the system with a drug, get the momentary high and there is a price to pay when the drug wears off, as it would. Money is finite.

Not sure how you can pull that off in a service based economy...

while we had a large manufacturing base it was easy, we made things the world wanted and they paid big time to get it, which transferred into good wages.

Now we primarily offer services... the same things many other countries offer ..

I could be wildly wrong, but I personally doubt we will ever see a serious increase in wages till we start to build things once more.

Your right because their corruption is causing our country a hell of a lot of money. I bet there are many fixes to the economy, we just have to stop giving it away to the corporations.

That's why Bernie gets my vote if he is nominated. Not his economic plan, not his immigration plan, not his healthcare plan, etc. Don't get me wrong, I do love how transparent he is with his policies. The problem is, I'm not an economist. So, his stance against corruption is enough for me and more politicians need to follow suit in that regard in my opinion of course.

But actually... that's the way the US Constitution was written (originally at that).

A constitution is not an economy. I'm not sure of your point.

Even the article has contrary views:


"The 5.3% number is a fantasy," said Jim Kessler, senior vice president at Third Way, a centrist think tank.


I wouldn't take this as gospel until a few other economists have a chance to look at it.

Did we not have similar growth under Bill Clinton? I am voting for Sanders and hope we do have this prosperity.


Presidents are quick to take credit during economic growth if it happens on their watch, but if it doesn't, they blame the past president, like Obama blames Bush. Economic policies take awhile to percolate through the economy. Clinton's good fortune economically was a result of the presidents before him, especially Ronald Reagan.


While Clinton got a surge from NAFTA too (though im not a fan of it), a lot of Reagon's policies started the trend toward the bubble economies we have now. We saw it with Asia it the late 80's and Mexico under Clinton before the housing bubble burst on us.

Another note since a previous poster mentions the like of Venezuela, Sanders is more a proponent of a socialist welfare system (he calls it Democratic Socialism for campaogn purposes) similar to the European countries. Thats not what Venezuela has.

You don't understand that the Constitution is the law of the land in the US or you don't understand how the Constitution grants Congress the authority to regulate commerce?

According to the Constitution Congress has the authority to regulate commerce, they also have the authority to provide for the general welfare of the United States. What's so ambiguous about my point?
