Funny you use the term tyrannical for Trump when one of the anagrams for Hilary Clinton is " il tyrannical ho "

I am inspired by how committed he has been to shaping a much more transformative platform for the Democrat Party. He has had real impact on a progressive platform over the past month. While politics around him has been insane, reactionary, and venomous, he has maintained his focus on the very issues and changes people say are needed.

The vision that he articulates, the peace and compassion he has championed, the cooperation rather than competition that is truly built into our DNA, has had a strong, competent statesman's voice.

He stayed about the causes. For that, I am thankful. He understands that it is a million positive actions by more and more inspired people that will help humanity, over time, value our interconnectedness, rather than greed.

Thank you Sen. Sanders. Each person that helps carry these ideas forward is a victory now. It is the message, not just the messenger, though we have been blessed that he chose to give so much that all may share someday in a better world than when we arrived.

Democrats that booed him will someday understand the shortsightedness clouding their vision. He has been doing the people's work.

Bless you Bernie, for being a reminder that human nature, at our core, is cooperative and compassionate. Indeed, they are the only living traits that lead to survival.

If they're booing sanders, then he's obviously the right man for the job!

I like a lot of Bernie's ideas. I don't particularly agree with him on energy policy. It could directly affect my life, the changes he wants to make. I also don't agree with how he wants to approach climate change. I also don't agree that the "college for all program" is a good idea. I think that college can be a valuable tool for certain people, but I am more in agreement with people like Gerald Celente on college. He says it is better to be a craftsman or tradesman in the economy of the future. I agree with him there. The colleges that are trade schools (diesel mechanics, machine shop, wood working, pluming, trades like these...) are the colleges that count. Administrative office type jobs are falling by the wayside with the advancement of automated AI type business management and automated IT tools. Computers are even taking out cashier type jobs, and other things.

Other than that, I agree with him on his stance with cannabis legalization, freeing many non-violent criminal drug offenders from prison sentences, and a lot of his policy.

Hillary doesn't have my support whatsoever. The only reason the economy was good with Bill was because he continued Bushes' National American Free Traded Agreement (NAFTA). Ultimately, NAFTA exported many millions of jobs outside the USA. It in my humble opinion was the precursor to the Trans-Pacific Partnership. It did boost the economy in those years, but it greatly raised the joblessness in America.

I am not in support of Trump. I think he says a lot of decent ideas, but we all pretty much know that whoever ends up in there is going to be taking orders from the shadow gov't.

As far as socialized medicine goes, I think that should be something that should be approved in America in the future. Health problems don't get cured or go away in the USA. Big-pharma has made dead-sure of that. Therefore, if the gov't has to start paying for it across the board, maybe we will see some of these diseases cured (heard disease, diabetes, cancer, etc., etc., etc.).

The only candidate in America that will 100% have my support is the one who will by Executive Order bypass the FDA and approve the cell-pouch types of diabetes cures that are proven to work already with a good safety rating and cultured cells harvested from pigs, and are ready to be moved to the mass market. I think that program should also be gov't subsidized to help our country be a healthier USA! I don't think there are any in support of that with all the big-pharma donations.

I will admire his principles when he goes the whole election WITHOUT throwing his support behind Hillary.

a reply to: IAMTAT you think Bernie will eventually endorse Frau Clinton?

I honestly don't know, politics is such a nonsensical can of worms.

I really hope he does not endorse hilley, no matter what I will not vote for her.

You have mistaken socialism for capitalism.

As someone who has lived during the times of communism, socialism, and now capitalism, I can assure you, the past has been 100000000000000% times better.

That ain't right.

They showed why they are in Washington - for the power, while he showed why he is there - to transform America for the better.

Whatever you think of his platform, you have to admire his principles.

I hate his platform but he's the far better choice. I think he at least cares.

He is not a socialist. Having a smattering of vague, somewhat left-wing ideas does not make you a socialist.

It certainly doesn't make you a Marxist or a communist.

If he labels himself that way it just shows that he is as clueless about the concept of socialism as the rest of America.
