To be fair, the DNC states this as well. Although they use the term "socialist" in place of "communist". But you get the point.

Not sure how to take you. You think most Americans, those that value the second amendment, will just stand by and watch the country go to the crapper. No I do not think so. Communism then totalitarianism sneaks in via the big WE LOVE EVERY ONE SOCIALISM BANNER. Government has not once proven it can run anything so why should we think they can run our F-ing life. If you are so inclined to like it leave for a more suitable environment politically.

Many of us value this wonderful republic. Leave it alone. Many of us are willing to fight and give our lives to keep it that way. We like the good ole USA we do not want the USSA.

Strange, then, that in 2 states so far he got more votes than anyone else. Hm.

I didn't say he wouldn't win the Communist - er, Socialist - er, Democrat nomination during their primaries.

I said he wouldn't win the Presidency. He would get trounced by Trump.


Ah. I didn’t realize that Iowa and New Hampshire were such hotbeds I’d communist sympathizers. You have no clue how most Americans think or act, right? They will always surprise you. I knew well beforehand that Obama was going to win when he ran, and all the constant bombardment from right wingers about how he was going to turn us into a Muslim communist nation were so ridiculous, and yet they all fervently believed it. I wonder if they feel dumb now. Just as I wonder, if sanders wins, and the country does well, or stays the same, will all of them feel stupid as well? At any rate, these constant statements of “he can’t win” are just nonsense, similar I expect to how you all talk about your favorite football team or mma fighters next fight. He can win. It’s all undetermined.

Pretending the future is already decided is delusion.

First off, I value the second amendment.

Second off you’ve all watched the country go to the crapper for 40 years and ain’t done sht, just like you won’t do sht now.

Third off, no one wants government running everything. That’s your straw man not our platform or goals.

Lastly, plenty Americans feel like I do. So next election comes we will see which side has more. But I guarantee you this, my side is growing faster. You couldn’t even talk about these things 10 years ago, now it’s a primary platform with the massive support. So when the people decide, 9 months from now, it may be people like you that win, it may be people like me, but I’ll be fine either way, as I support the will if the majority as the right law of the land. You, however, may have a problem if sanders wins, because you apparently only think your will is relevant.

Awww, cute little snarky comment, I like it. I get the feeling I touched on a nerve. My comprehension is just fine, yours I'm not so sure about. In case you forgot this thread is about bernie running for president. These are your words that I replied to:



a reply to: pexx421 Are we all rich upper class because we can all get aluminum plates and silverware now? No. It doesn’t work like that.

yes it does. if you compare yourself with ACTUAL poor people. like the ones living in Africa or other 3rd world countries. your spoiled and entitled.

Yes. But the dnc is a corrupt establishment fully supportive of forever wars and oligarchs (much like the republicans) who are furious at seeing their platform subverted by actual progressives. They hate Bernie more than they do trump, because Bernie exposes the lie of their establishment. I mean, Bernie literally stands for everything they’ve given voice to for decades. If they were truly progressive or for the working class they would be behind him 100%. And then let’s take gabbard! For Christ’s sake, they couldn’t get a better poster child for what they supposedly stand for. Minority, female, veteran, anti war, gov of the one us state with socialized healthcare. They should have been behind her 200%!

The fact of the matter is that everything they purport to stand for is lies. Much like the rnc.

Good way to characterize 27% of us voters, who win national elections in equal amounts to your own party. I’d say any establishment party devotee is a loony.

Too much money is being redistributed to billionaires. The economy is rigged. It's organized crime.

Socialism is the only answer. Why is one type of theft better than the other type. The billionaires have been raping the workers for years. It's time for the pendulum to swing back the other way!

I think Bernie is great! I hope he wins!


I asked a Chinese friend what it was like living in Communist China once. He responded that it was a just a system of control for a bunch of criminals who funneled money to themselves. Socialism will be organized crime as well, just trading one group of criminals for another. Its simply a different system of control to achieve the same thing; wealth and power for those in control.

It’s as though he can enact socialism in America if elected. a reply to: 727Sky

Ah, so then we should just stay happy with the criminals we have, is that your take? No two governments are the same. Our capitalism isn’t Columbia’s capitalism (thank god), and chinas communism isn’t the same as Switzerland’s mixed economy with social safety nets. Not sure why you think we would model our gov after China’s. Look, you can take monarchy, for example. There were tons of monarchies. Some worked well for the people, some were despots, some fed their people, some starved their people. Some were beloved and some were hated. They were all monarchies.

Why do people act as though initiating a few social safety supports drives all nations to communism, gulags, and bread lines? We are not the same world that we were 80 years ago, or even 20 years ago. We’re not soviet Russia, which was state capitalism by the way, and we are not in an arms war with a massively more powerful foe, nor are we surrounded on all sides by credible enemies.

Americans are the most scaredy ass hegemon in history. I’m sure there’s a very good explanation for that. And I think it has to do with securing the status of the wealthy elite.

Veritas recorded hundreds, if not thousands, of hours of people working on Bernie's campaign and they could only come up with two people (one of whom wasn't even still part of the campaign when they released the video) saying these things and you think that they represent every Bernie supporter?

I guess Trump is definitely represented by all the neo-Nazis that supported him at Unite the Right.


Regardless who is right or wrong, the fact it a vast majority of Americans will not want to take the risk of letting communists into a seat of power through someone with Bernie's platform, so the question of "are there or aren't there Hardcore Commies infiltrating his campaign", is a moot point.
Got that on madeitup.com, along with all your other “facts” I see.


No, I got it from SimpleLogic.com...

But hey, if you think I'm wrong and American voters are very much on the side of Socialism/Communism, more power to you, just don't be too upset when you are proven wrong in the national elections.

How is Bernie socialist? you guys make no sense with this label. He is a democratic socialist. Is universal healthcare socialist? If so, France, Canada, Australia, Germany, Israel amongst many others have universal healthcare so they are socialist. Pure socialism is where the state controls every aspect of the economy so Bernie is no where close to this as he is not remotely suggesting taking over private enterprise other then where it applies to basic human rights so no he is not gonna take over any other services or industries. He wants to go after big corporations that screw us as in wall street banksters and the health care oligarchs. Implementing social programs is not socialist. If so, the USA is already socialist and has been for quite a while. If you don't like him fine but don't call him a socailist and compare him to mao and stalin cause you sound really unintelligent.

Logic doesn’t pretend that the future is ordained or you know what everyone else is thinking. I think American voters are moving to the side of reclaiming power over how their taxes are spent. However, I’ll be fine if trump is elected again because it won’t shatter my worldview. Sounds like many on here will suffer some serious cognitive dissonance if sanders wins though.

The type of social policies Bernie is proposing are already in place in most developed countries. Germany, France, Australia, Sweden, Switzerland, Finland, Israel, the Netherlands, Norway, Switzerland, and the United Kingdom to name a few. These countries figured out a long time ago that providing free healthcare to its citizens should be a right and not a privilege because the benefits far out weight all the costs. The US is slowly catching up to this and the younger generations are finally understanding that this is the way to go. Some of you are still resisting the idea but I think we will get there eventually. 

Btw if yall want have an intelligent and fair discussion about Bernies why not focus on the specific policies he is proposing? I mean instead of just shouting out "commie" like you have nothing of value to add except for ignorant and outdated knee jerk reactions.

Like shouting out ‘racist’ when discussing the extremely successful Trump presidency?

The reason people don’t need to have intelligent and fair discussion about Bernie’s communist ideology is because he has LESS than zero point zero percent chance of ever becoming president.

First, the Trump Presidency has not been successful, based on his inability to enact any of his promises from the campaign trail.

Second, all polls showed that, in the last election, had the Democrats run Sanders instead of Clinton, Trump would have gotten crushed. It wasn't even close. Go look at the numbers.

Third, and most importantly, Trump's Presidency is inherently racist, top to bottom. And, he's made no bones about that. The fact that his supporters still pretend to think to the contrary is evidence of not only the President's racism, but theirs, as well. Stop pretending to hide behind Trump's talking points that serve to change the actual narrative.

If you support Trump, you support racism. If you support Trump, you support bigotry. If you support Trump, you support intolerance. If you support Trump, you support the one percent that all of us on this website are not even close to being a part of.

Job well done, lemmings.
