Will this finally be the year that the people stop siding with Republicrats and make that incredibly revolutionary decision to... um... give someone else a shot? lol.

"The reality of Washington, D.C., today is that we have one party, the Republican Party, completely dominated by big money and right wing folks. And you have another party, the Democratic Party, too much controlled by corporate money ... We have no president that can deal with that. Unless we mobilize the American people and create a strong grass-roots movement that says enough is enough, the billionaire class cannot have it all." (Bernie Sanders).

Hmmmm + I think that - http://www.gp.org/GreenNewDeal/ will be influencing Left / Liberal / Progressive thinking in the USA, for many years to come & as GS herself says ... "The big problem is not having an independent political party. It's a longer term struggle. I think many of Bernie's supporters will want a plan B [if he doesn't win the nomination] and we are building that now," Stein said. "That movement is alive and well out on the streets right now. We can see it in the fight for a $15 minimum wage. We see it with Black Lives Matter and the student fight for free public higher education and to stop student debt; in the movement for climate justice and immigrants rights and workers rights."

"Those movements are not going away because people are becoming more desperate all the time," she added. "The Democrats are not solving these problems. The Democrats are promoting things like the Trans Pacific Partnership as a solution."

Good forum-post.Good read.Thank you.

Bernie is a decent dude but the amount of faith people are putting on a situation that is in-establishment is totally insane.

This must have been what it was like to watch me in 2008 lol.

Consider, that it probably isn't so much ''faith'' - as it is a 'desperate desire' for ''hope and change'', imo. + see : http://www.truth-out.org/opinion/item/32429-criminalizing-the-history-of-us-radical-underground-movements for some deeper insights into how The Feds/PDs are behaving and why.

Oh look at that, another jack ass making fun of the biggest political movement we have seen in decades.

Were you that guy that would drive by and yell Get a Job?

Careful, your conservative Democrat emotions are rearing up.
