  • Bernie says he's a candidate

    Yesterday Bernie Sanders, famous Vermont socialist senator, said that he would again run for president. What do you think his chances are in such a crowded Democrat field? Does he get extra points for almost winning over HRC in the 2016 Dem primary? Are his 'grassroots' supporters as numerous, or have they pledged their votes to other socialistas who have already proclaimed that they should lead our country into the liberalism and 'class equality' that the lower echelon of our society wish for? Please justify your answers.

    I think Sanders is the only DNC candidate who might be a threat, but because of his history (the 2016 backstab) the million-dollar question is will the DNC brass trust and back him? If they don't (again) and get caught (again) it could have serious repercussions; I believe part of Trump's win stemmed from the DNC's treatment of Sanders.

    Sanders had a heavy draw from young people in 2016, but that same base now has other young Dems to focus upon, and not incidentally they are aging into the post-college non-voting demographics.

    Any man can hold his place when the bands play and women throw flowers; it is when the enemy presses close and metal shears through the ranks that one can acertain which are soldiers, and which are not.

      Rimmer , i normally disagree with but in this one case you are right on. i think he bernie has moved the goal post to the left. what people thought as as to far to the left, they would now accept as normal. for example socialised medicine, free community college, ect

            How about you first justify all of your questions?

            Sanders is but one of many Democrats sensing an opportunity to move up if he/she can just find the right platform to fool the public with. The Dums are increasingly desperate to recover from the disaster they have created, and we can expect this next election to be particularly underhanded, full of smear campaigns and just plain corrupt and dirty - in other words, The Dummycrats at their finest. If they fail to win this one, they may never recover the ground lost trying to constantly attack, threaten and smear Trump, even though the Republicans have become total non-entities.

            For potential candidates the field is wide open, since there is no clear leader anymore among the Dums, so expect them to come out of the woodwork and out from under their rocks in droves. After all, wouldn't you do anything to get a job that lets you retire for life after working only four years?

                He can move to Hollyweird. There is an entire colony of people there who promised they would leave but never did - he can hang out with them.

                  Sanders should not run, he cost Clinton the election last time around even though Mrs Clinton won the popular vote. Without Sanders even more people would have voted for H Clinton. Some of the Sanders supporters turned to Trump after Bernie dropped out.

                  Donald Trump, the Celebrity Apprentice and fast talking big time business man is our POTUS..its stunning beyond belief but that is the world we live in. Nothing against Trump, but now the floodgates are open we might have a rap star or Celebrity Chief as a POTUS in the future.

                  I was surprised that so many Southern Americans would vote for Trump in 2016. I have in my times in Las Vegas meant some good Americans from Alabama and Texas and I wonder if those folks voted for Trump, I know one of them I meant at the Orleans was a massive Trump supporter and this was a few months before Trumps election...me and him went back and fourth arguing while some timid onlooker was surprised to see two Americans engage in free speech. I think the timid onlooker was offended because me and this guy were voicing our free speech right at the Casino bar which is the American way. I told the guy I was talking to that its H Clinton that will win in 2016, Im still totally surprised that Trump became POTUS in 2016.

                  These the same people of the South whom claim to stand for family and being married to the same person for ones whole life, the same people that talk of gun owner rights and going to Church each Sunday...and yet many of them supported the NYC business man in Trump in the 2016 POTUS election.

                    You as most seem to mix up universal care with socialized medicine. Germany has universal care but it isn't controlled by the government. Free schooling??? Have you ever considered the real pro's and con's? I can't afford to go to college and forced into a low paying job category. I earn less so I pay less tax. Or I get a college degree, get a better paying job, pay more taxes, covering the cost of my school. That seems like a win-win to me.

                          Yeah, Sanders has that Hillary tinge to him. He's going to run, and everyone will be thinking, "The Democrats rigged this against him last time. What are they up to now? Who are they leaking debate questions to? What do their emails say?"

                            Sanders is coming out with the racist, sexist name calling. It doesn't work on The Don. You can try that only on the Romney-McCain types. Frankly, it makes Bernie look like a follower.

                              Isn't that obvious? Lizzie Warren.
