Well, umm, how do you feel about the actual criminal politicians currently in office? Btw, Sanders ain't one of them. Also, are you apart of the elite because he ain't looking to rob you, or them, just end corporate welfare and stop Wall Streets shenanigans!

Who do you support?

I'm an anarchist. I don't believe in one man's authority over another.

I think Bernie is trying to prevent criminals from taking all our money.....

No, he wants to be the criminal taking all of our money.

Theft is theft, whether it's perpetrated by a corporation, the state, or (ever increasingly) both working together to screw you.


Well.....I don't think you could call using our collective tax dollars to invest in America "theft" .... in fact millions of people are sending in their hard earned money to support Bernie's ideas.

Now banks on the other hand get outright CAUGHT laundering money , breaking the laws, crashing the economy and they are "fined"...lol....and the tax payers bail them out...now that is THEFT !

Citizens United is Theft of a fair Election. I already know it's unlikely you'll see things my way...but this nonsense that Bernie is out to "steal" all your money just doesn't jive IMO.

And where do the "tax dollars" come from, pray tell?

Were they charitably donated?

When did it become the responsibility of government to "invest" in America?

3.2 million people is a lot of people....I can't possibly imagine how the courts could not consider this, especially since besides the crazy deadline, there also seems to be some sort of "mistake" that changed people's party affiliation. This will be an important case to keep our eyes on. TY for posting.

I'm sure things will change for the next cycle but changing it by tomorrow morning? Unlikely.

So you don't believe in paying taxes then? OK...well, that's another way to go I guess. I like having schools, roads, parks, fire departments, etc. and I've been paying taxes since I was 16yrs. old. I am willing to contribute to the common good, I did not agree to give "charity" to pay off wall streets gambling debts.

Vermont senator and ostensible socialist Bernie Sanders is playing the sheepdog candidate for Hillary Clnton this year. Bernie's job is to warm up the crowd for Hillary, herding activist energies and the disaffected left back into the Democratic fold one more time. Bernie aims to tie up activist energies and resources till the summer of 2016 when the only remaining choice will be the usual lesser of two evils.

oilempire.us...

I would suggest to check this site out, has some nice info about Trump and Hillary as well.

I guess it became "their" responsibility when they take OUR money for the purpose of maintaining the Country. As a tax payer and American citizen I am being forced to be liable for dirty deals, dirty debts and dirty wars I never agreed to !

So giving them more money will make it better?

I've heard this said, but I'm not sure I agree.....Bernie is in this to win this. If this is the strategy I think it will backfire, Hillary is not going to get all Bernie's supporters, not this one at least. TY for posting.

I don't think we need to give them any more money, we need to re-claim the money that has been and is still being stolen. Corporate greed is destroying America...that is what this election is all about !

BTW, I think college should cost something, it's an important life lesson to value something you work for....but I don't think kids should have to go into high interest debt. to afford college.

You'll know it's right, when Trump loses the Republican nomination, and runs independent.

How to know we are being played? You see the candidates on the corporate-run television, correct?

I'm curious about "corporate greed".

Is it illegal to be greedy?

I understand what your saying, however I think corporate run TV has done their best to minimize Sander's without appearing to be completely biased. This movement is too big for them to completely control anymore, although they sure have tried. It's blatant, subliminal and dirty reporting. Part of what inspired this whole OP....Bernie's meeting the Pope and all we hear is how he SHOULD be campaigning in NY !

Clearly the Republican citizens want Trump as the nominee, and that's who it should be if he wins. I think Sanders and Trump are the people's choice. I would LOVE to see the two men debate and I believe Bernie would win...

Nope it's not illegal to be greedy, but it is illegal, not to mention unethical, to use "bribery" to influence public policy . White collar criminals have circumvented the Law, certainly the Spirit of the Law.

So you think the policy makers are going to punish the people that bribed the same policy makers that you want to punish those that bribe the policy makers?
