How many Democratic Socialists are running for Congress this year?




Two Clinton and Sanders.

After Clintons comments tonite.

'Cradle to grave pipeline'

Yeah, I get it. I already said that Sanders mistake was making it too broad of a statement. I said that like 3 pages ago. What I disagree with is that it's the most offensive statement or the most racist statement by any candidate so far. It's not by a long shot so I find it ridiculous that so many people are losing their collective sh*t over it.

Yes, it's not an accurate statement. But if you use common sense like any normal person would you'd realize his statement wasn't some absolute about "ALL WHITE PEOPLE". It's pretty obvious and people do it all the time. But of course when it is said by someone who you don't like then it's a problem.

You cannot have a war without innocent people dying. It is a very sad fact, but it is fact nonetheless. No war has ever been fought where no innocent person died. None in the history of humanity.

Now, while not ever having another war is a nice thought, there are bad people in the world whom we must defend ourselves against. This is another fact of life, and regardless of all the he said she said factors, this one wont be solved with roses.

His statement wasn't about war. It was "We need to go after terrorists families." That's a direct statement.

That is the same kind of mentality that the terrorists themselves have. Ya know, that there are no innocent Americans so it's justified in killing them all the same.

I don't support that kind of thinking from anyone whether it's a Muslim Terrorist or a Presidential Candidate. If you think it's ok to think like that, go for it. But I don't find the direct targeting of potentially innocent people as ok.

Since I have already discussed in detail and with plenty of facts the supposedly racist things Trump said twice today, I just don't feel like doing it again tonight. Tomorrow, I will link you to my comments on the topic if you like.

But this is the most racist thing said by any candidate so far this race, and it was overtly racist against an entire race of people. Not even Trump has done that.

Do you mean under the name of Democratic Socialists, or by similar policies?

First a win by Sen Sanders will send a message to the corporate politicians.

Second if Tim Canova beats DWS they will be asking how can two corporate darlings have been voted out.

Just an FYI for you, have fun!

All you Bern Victims know is "Corporate" and "Oligarchy". You almost literally have no other answers deeper than that.

While you ignore the MYRIAD of other facts about him.

Corporate! HAND WAVE! OLIGARCHY! HAND WAVE. Fair share! Hand wave! Social Justice! Waving hands still...

You can go after people different ways, it does not refer specifically to murdering people in their beds.

One of the perks these terrorists have, is financial benefit to their families, among other benefits given by the organizations.

So, one can go after the family to make sure they reap no financial benefits and others, and the reply was based originally on a hypothetical argument, to which Trump gave a logical and hypothetical reply, but after that hypothetical, he did say it would be politically expedient and perhaps save life if we were to target the one thing terrorists hold dear, if they even hold their families dear.

That I am not personally so sure about.

Ya know alot of people love to bash Sanders. I don't necessarily love all of his policies but at least the guy is consistent and appears to be honest...


Consistently and honestly BAD for Americans other than Urban poor Blacks, and Illegal Immigrants and their families. Otherwise, good luck!

So yeah, partly true.


Again not really a fan of all of his "policies" which he will never be able to actually implement but his consistency conveys honesty IMO. At least he would be a good place holder until this country could find a real leader because Hillary, Trump, Cruz et al are not it. Again IMO.

I just don't fear Sen Sanders, we could do much better for US citizens than we have been.

Both the current corporate parties are responsible for what todays US of A has become, I do not see either of them making things better!

With the upcoming advances in AI and robotics, blue collar jobs as we know them will soon be a thing of the past.

No it's not. You can claim it is all day long but it's still just your opinion. My opinion is the opposite of yours. Since they are both just our opinions they really aren't even up for debate.

You think it's the most racist thing ever said, fine, think that all you want. I disagree completely. Guess what, nobody gives a sh*t about what you or I think about it either. Except you and me. So why argue about it??? Have whatever opinion you want and I'll have mine. I think you're making way too big of a deal out of it. You disagree with me. So what.

So we disagree. Who gives a damn really??? Neither one of us is going to agree with the other. Just live with it.

So you're able to speculate that Trump might have meant "Go after their families" to mean something other than "Kill their families". Yet you're not able to see how Sanders statement wasn't directed at "All white People".

Could it be that when it comes to someone who you don't like there is no margin of error in what they say but when it's someone you like you'll bend over backwards in making excuses for what they say???

You could also use that argument back at me as well. Just thought I'd point that out ahead of time to save you some time.

'go after', is not 'kill'. the words are different, and have different meanings. I went after my husband this morning, and I will guarantee you I did not kill him. The phrase go after is not equal in meaning to kill and can be either good or bad, or have a variety of different connotations.

When You're White You Don't Know What It's Like To Be Poor - can actually only have one meaning if it is not qualified somehow, and there was no qualification to the phrase at the end of the phrase. It was a direct statement of race alone, not knowing anything about poverty without any qualification.

He was pretty specific about killing them. He did not mean financially. Trump believes in murdering them even innocent. Thats his belief and clearly others agree with him. Which is pretty dispicable. So here on the subject of race would it be so much of a stretch that someone who paints with such broad strokes and believes in the killing of innocents would also hold racist beliefs.

Bernie is pandering to Hillary's 'Blacks' and Hillary is pandering to Bernie's 'Millennials'.
Pander Pander Pander...

Bernie stomped the flaming turd-bag the other day...and I'm not talking about beating Hillary in the debate.

Like Sanders painting with a broad brush about White people not know what it's like to be poor ?

Like Sanders painting with a broad brush whining about billionaires ?

Like Sanders broad brush that all guns that are 'not' for hunting be banned?

Like those BROAD strokes of the socialist brush?

Inquiring minds want to know.

I particularly liked Sanders that 'stand up' guy supporting the killing of innocents hiding behind womens skirts.

Since WE ALL come from the Same place.

I particularly like Sanders broad brush that we are 'killing' the planet so don't step on that sapling.

But it's right as rain to kill a fetus.

Ya know a person that would eventually be born one day, and could find out how awesome 'free' college, and healthcare is.

Er wait Sanders doesn't have a problem denying a fetus health care. but,but,but it's a 'human RIGHT'.
