    Bernie is proud to be a Democratic socialist, as I am. Only on Fox News is promoting socialist values seen as scary.

  2. The corporate-controlled media dog whistle term, “Socialist,” is being attached to anyone not entirely sold-out to current far right-wing control and influences being constantly stuffed down our throats here in the U.S.

    Senadate Bernie Sanders is the closest semblance to an Eisenhower Republican seen in many years in the U.S. political arena.

    Striking a balance between the interests of our average hard working citizens, their families and the interests’ of industry and commerce made our country great.

    The current IMBALANCE on behalf of a greedy bunch of oligarchs is now having an opposite and dangerous effect to everyone in our country.

    For example – Does anyone remember PRIVACY?!

  3. “Sanders fails to confront the American Empire and military state, and, (Chris Hedges) adds, has unforgivably “abandoned the Palestinians and given carte blanche to Israel”

    Sanders is shaking up the establishment as corbyn is doing in UK .. but .. unlike corbyn … he won’t distance himself from the fascist thugs of likud who have killed 2000 Palestinian children in the last 14 years.

  4. OK- Bernie’s not perfect, but are you willing to take a pass while one of the Trumpists of the Republican brigade is elected?

    • @Ron – Lesser of the two evils has always been a terrible reason to pick one candidate over the other. Don’t vote just to stain your hands with blood

      • JC – PROVE that ANY politician is not “evil” to one extent or the other (goes for advisors, too) and that politician will get my vote.

        Good luck.

      • John- I am well aware of that. I guess I prefer to say that I’m voting for the candidate I fear the least. None of them are actually making the important decisions anyway. The polling process is simply the ruling oligarchy determining how far they can push the populace without starting a revolution. They get together in their secret places to fight about how they are going to carve up the world. It’s the politicians’ job to sell that BS to the public.

  5. If he criticized or didn’t vote appropriately, he would be buried with an avalanche of negative campaign ads by A.I.P.A.C He knows it as does every other legislator.

    • He’s still going to cut US military funding to Israel if he gets elected, because he’s going to cut *all* the wasteful US military funding.

      • Nate – Israel and Egypt are by far the largest recipients of U.S. foreign aid.

        Israel has a population of around 8 million people. As a comparison, Los Angeles County has a million or two more inhabitants than Israel.

        If every person in L.A. County received the foreign aid ceded continuously to Israel or Egypt equally divided, there would be far less poverty which is rife there now.

        Senator Sanders is correct. Bribing any two countries to prevent their historical conflicts is no longer sustainable, as is, carrying on our back those many special interests based in the multi-national corporate spider web of greed and diversion aka “foreign aid.”

        The concepts espoused by Senator Sanders jump squarely into the face of an oligarchy which is in the process of morphing our once great country into a personal possession for a handful of knowing madmen and their henchpersons.

        Unless these voting appliances are fixed, voter suppression is suppressed and actual facts are made available THIS YEAR, the U.S. democracy which became a great country and could be, again, will vanish into obscured history. Merely another point of history omitted from “the test” which is being substituted for an actual education in our country.

  6. Do the Israeli Zionists have any better friend than Hillary Clinton? She panders to Jewish big money as much as any Republican.

    • The same problem exists in the UK where 80% of the ruling conservative politicians are ‘friends of Israel’ yet Jews represent less than 1% of the electorate. But I will be called anti semitic for even mentioning this anomaly let alone asking why Conservative politicians feel it necessary to join their club.
