Every single age argument that the media made applies to Bernie.


Not every one. The biggest one was that if he had died then Palin would have been in charge and that scared a lot of people away from the vote.

Bernie voted the same as Hillary 93% of the time.

They are nearly identical.

Does that make Bernie a democrat or Hillary a socialist?

How did Hillary get to vote in the Senate after 2009?

ignore the paid disinfo trolls, they are scared of bernie

reagan was part of a contested convention, it doesn't mean the party is divided or weak, it means the candidates are using every tool at their disposal.

Bernie is hoping to crush Hillary in California and get some of these super delegates to wise up and support him.

Hillary vs. Trump is a 50/50 shot.

Bernie vs. Trump is a win.

Hillary only does well against Sanders in states that have failed hacking inspections on their voting machines, coincidence? I think not.

Hillary is going to find it a lot harder to rig the national election than the primaries.


How do you think a communist will get elected in this country?

Best thing we can hope for is Hillary nomination, then Hillary indicted, then it'll be Trump vs Johnson. Johnson is a great candidate but gets no publicity. With Hillary gone, he'll get enough publicity to have a shot at winning.

Just need to knock out the commie and the crooked psychopath, Johnson will have an easy time grabbing liberal voters AND stealing Trump voters.

For example, his wife's financial mismanagement broke the college she was president of


The college only ended up failing around 5 or so years after Mrs. Sanders was no longer involved, as far as I recall. While she was there I believe its financial health was rated a reasonable degree higher than the national average, too.

What that implies is that Mrs. Sanders is actually excellent with money, or she was decent and her successor was awful. Neither of those is really a black mark.

Ooo, who's paying me? When does my check arrive in the mail?! How much am I making?! I need that money ... I am still waiting for the Kochs to pay me appearing at some local TEA Party rallies mind you since everyone swears that people only showed up there for the money too.


Anyone with half a brain is worried about socialism.

The college could not pay it's debts that were racked up during her tenure. That is a fact. She grew the college on a series of loans. Things look good when you have plenty of other people's money in your accounts, but now the loans are coming due with interest and the university cannot pay them, so they had to close their doors.

Or does that mean that Hillary had a decent voting record outside of the 7% of cases where it really mattered and their votes differed? Y'know, like the Iraq war.

How does Ron Paul's voting compare to Bernie and Hillary's? I'm actually quite curious, but wouldn't know how to check.

A 7% voting discrepancy doesn't give you important details. For instance, saying that 93% of the time Hillary didn't murder someone (she murdered 7 people), just like Bernie (who didn't murder someone 100% of the time) is "nearly identical" wouldn't really be a good idea.

This is the first I've heard of any loans. Do you have details?

No, McCain is older than Bernie.

Bernie is very tech savy considering he's has a lot of internet support and the youth vote. He's even made videos for Reddit thanking their users for their support and been on the number 1 news channel on YouTube, the TYT.

Considering he was known as "Dr. No" in the House, I doubt they aligned very much. Hard to say, considering they served different chambers of Congress.

But if there is ANY site out there that qualitatively compares voting records like this, especially across chambers, I'd be very interested to know as well!

Jane Sanders' former college closes doors citing burden of land deal she orchestrated

www.cnn.com...


Burlington College, the small private liberal arts school in Vermont once headed by Jane Sanders -- wife of Democratic presidential candidate Bernie Sanders -- has announced it will close its doors permanently at the end of this month due to the "crushing weight" of debt incurred from a real estate deal during her time as president.


In the loan document, signed by Sanders, People's United Bank requires that the college "receive commitments of a minimum of $2.27 million of grants and donations prior to closing." Audits obtained by VT digger show that the school only took in $676,000.

This is definitely one thing I will give Bernie. His Internet presence is impressive and his subreddits, while I don't frequent, are the biggest campaign subs I've seen.

When ever someone's candidate is losing his supporters claim rigged or fraud. It's pathetic really.
I agree yet I think this is a huge problem that someone needs to address.


As for actually rigging machines. That is the most ludicrous thing ever.

Voter fraud where people go and vote as someone else does happen.
So just know that all these cries of rigged are the death throes of the Sanders campaign.

Voter fraud, someone voting under a false name, almost never happens.

The Brennan Center’s ongoing examination of voter fraud claims reveal that voter fraud is very rare, voter impersonation is nearly non-existent, and much of the problems associated with alleged fraud in elections relates to unintentional mistakes by voters or election administrators.
Brennan Center For Justice


A comprehensive investigation of voter impersonation finds 31 credible incidents out of one billion ballots cast

Washington Post

As for election fraud and electric voting machine tampering evidence has been reported that fraud is very active and wide spread.

It's ironic that the very delegates that Democrats claim as their "bread and butter voters", are borrowing or begging funds to attend this year's Philadelphia convention, because of the exorbitant costs.

Is "hypocrisy" the appropriate word to use here?
