The one ray of hope in your presidential elections next year is Bernie Sanders.

As the writer of the piece says in closing:


You've got to rebuild your long-gone American left.


And the sooner the better.

Bernie the Socialist will not be the Democratic presidential candidate for president.


Hillary has already won that for demoncrats (actually we know that was appointed to her before this "election" started).


My guess is that Hillary will choose Bernie as her VP candidate, that way she can solidify all Far-Left and Socialist votes together.

When are you going to accept the fact that Bernie is not the chosen one. 


Hillary has had the DNC wrapped for a long time.

Not until it is done...we heard the same things about Obama vs. Hillary. I think it is a longer shot this time around, but I won't give up on the best candidate until he gives up.

I like Bernie Sanders as I think he is an honest guy, relatively speaking.


However,  in no way can I vote for a socialist.  I have no faith in socialism and I have a hard time respecting the oppinion of people that see it as a positive.



Still,  if by some fluke he is able to win the presidency I will do my best to keep an open mind and be supportive.

I respect Sanders brand of Democratic Socialism much more than I respect Republican Capitalism...which I have zero 'faith' in.


I like him because he is the best politician/person we have as a 'choice'...bar none...and he is the perfect contrast to the Donald, which I believe is the perfect example of the primary thing wrong with this society and nation at the moment.

Well, if you think this country is in debt now, wait until you have that dream when Bernie becomes president.


Just add 18 trillion dollars to our debt now...

LOL...Wall Street would be the last place I would look for accurate analysis of Sander's policies. I especially respect his views of them over Clinton's pandering and selling out to them...and forget about the Republicans in that respect.


I'm looking for balance...and Sanders would provide that. Not that I think he would be able to change Washington or even get most of his policy ideas passed...but if the Republicans maintain majority, I think Sanders would be the perfect balance.


I'm under no illusions that the President can change Washington...not matter who he is.

or so the media tells us.     Just as Trump has a 20 something% base as I read last night but 90% of the media press,    turn off the pundits,   they are not saying anything worthwhile.     

Human nature leads people to put each other in neat boxes. Some put all women into one category, even though Sarah Palin and Hillary Clinton both exist. Black Lives Matter activists are arrested for civil disobedience nationwide, but we talk about “the black vote” as though Republican Ben Carson isn’t running for president and conservative Clarence Thomas isn’t a justice of the Supreme Court.

The Right Wing and the Left Wing come from the same bird.
