I don't think Bernie will run and I don't think trump will either. Both are having serious health issues.

The important races will be in the house and senate sack of clowns.


I suppose you have a link to Trump's serious health issues? We know Bernie got a stent, so what? He's better off now than before.


I base my trumps diagnoses on listening to him speak. Even a year ago his speech patterns were crisp and concise; now he sounds like he is strokin out. Sluring his words like he's drunk sounding confused and losing his train of thought.

You must not have heard him speak at the Daytona 500 two weekends ago. He was a clear and strong-speaking as he's ever been. I know from personal experience that being overly-tired can make you slur your speech.

Newsweek is a magazine, not a medical diagnosis. I didn't hear any slurring in that clip.

There are two billionaires running with him. Neither are giving up anything other than spending it for their own personal gain. Bloomberg said something about when he dies he will donate it...blah blah. Why not donate it right now then. Total nonsense. No billionaire is giving up anything.

Just pathetic people really truly believe Bernie is going to get their money. He won't get a dime of it. He is running his mouth and won't be able to back it up just like the keep your doctor sham. He will fall flat on his face. Only money he will get is from flogging the middle class and infuriating them because they don't have anywhere to hide. He won't be flogging me. I will retire. Screw you Bernie. Not getting their wealth or mine.

My understanding was you had to earn over a billion dollars in a tax year. New laws would have no impact on billions of dollars already stored up in wealth and equity. The fed/state can't go seize your existing assets retroactively.

The reality is whatever year the billion dollar income is taxed the USA will have zero people who earned over a billion dollars.

When democrats are promising free stuff and demonizing rich people it's just a sign that it's election season.

Promises promises.....

He can say anything but he will not have the ability to get it done.

One thing I can promise though... And I can get it done.... I will be dumping stocks like hot potatoes if bernie wins the election....


If you really have money tied up in the stock market you should have done that around a year ago.


Bzzzzzzz - wrong answer.

Gold & Silver just called, they want Coronavirus to stay.

In the last 48 hours, both are at 7-years highs, thanks to market volatility.

I told you (ATS) 12 months ago to purchase Silver - did anyone listen?

Gold and Silver - pwning humans since before the Egyptians.

LOL


Go easy, ,if he had any equity he wouldn't be rooting for Bernie

So it’s not even worth trying.

That seems to be the current thought process around here.

That Socialism or Communism shouldn't be tried?

Yes, that is absolutely the thought process around here (by anyone with more than two functioning brain cells).

That would only be a substantive factor if they thought Trump was going to loose, so you're basically supporting the notion that the smart money is on a Trump loss by citing anonymous twitter "analysts" as being accurate. If "Cigman Freud" says it, then it must be true!

Yeah...my concern with a Bernie presidency, isnt how billionaires faire.

My concern is our loss of freedom and wrapping a billion pound weight of debt around the neck of the USA


But yet you don't have a problem with the trillions of dollars of debt that your previous presidents (including the current one) have built up over the years?

How's that?

Yep, because the current system, which leaves around 15% of the population living in poverty is fantastic!!! How can we possibly come up with anything better.

I can't help it if some people choose to live in poverty.

Yes, in this country, it is a choice. PERIOD.

I have a problem with it, but, since it is mathematically impossible for anything else to happen under the current debt/usury based system system, I'm not sure what you expect any President to do. Kennedy's EO 11110 which authorized the Secretary of the Treasury to issue United States Notes (aka 'silver certificates') is rumored to be one of the many reasons he was assassinated. When Lincoln, did it, he was assassinated. When Jackson was working to 'kill the bank', there was an unsuccessful assassination attempt on his life, where two pistols misfired.

Our monetary system is the heart and soul of the stranglehold of power that the elites have over us.

that is so true, but you forgot to mention this, we are their employees or I would say "modern day slaves" and that is why both husband and wife have to work these days

Medicare for all proposal is 60 trillion. "billion pound weight" was a metaphor for crying out loud.

If he is elected it will have no impact on billionaires. For one, his plan still has to go through Congress and that Congress is fed by billionaires. Even if they do pass something the billionaires will have 2-3 years reaction time to move their operation, money and even themselves from the scene. And they may not even have to do that once they lobby to change tax laws to protect their money which they already have perfected.

I know it sounds great to a lot of people but this is NEVER GONNA HAPPEN. Bernie is not taking money from billionaires to fuel his nirvana so everyone can eat, wipe and just exist without any stress whatsoever ever again.

NOT GONNA HAPPEN



So to be clear, our government is corrupted so why even try to make it better.

Got it.

What a wonderful attitude. What’s the use of trying?

Just give up.


I think the op doesn't want it to happen.

Quite a lot of people don't want it to happen.

Personally, I don't want it to happen.

A maximum personal wealth quota was one of the cornerstones of Soviet Communism. And it didn't work, because those who acquired more than the cap just didn't admit it.

When the wall fell and 20 oligarchs suddenly emerged, do you really think they just cobbled that much wealth together on the fly?

No. They already had it embezzled. Technically most of it belonged to the state, but they were the only ones who knew the bank account numbers.

Possession is 90% of ownership. Under Bernie, 1% will still POSSESS all the wealth. (And probably even fewer than 1%).



We will all "own" it. But only 1% will be allowed to decide how to spend it.
