What about Donald Trump?

I think Bernie can beat Trump in the general, what do you think?

Bernie Sanders is building a national movement of people in both red and blue states who are fed up with a corrupt system that is being controlled by a handful of billionaire donors.

I suppose the only question now is where is Sander's getting his money from. i.e. who is going to be pulling his strings?

It is a fact that there would have been no Iraq War if Nader had supported Gore.

You rationalize your shit any way you want to.

stop making airstrikes

[-] 1 points by factsrfun (8780) from Phoenix, AZ 2 years ago

get off your ass and vote

the difference between the two statements is you have the power to do one of them, if you want the bombing to stop, stop electing the GOP will that alone do it? no, but if the GOP hold power nothing else will matter people like W don't give a damn about your anti war talk, there is a way forward you are just too full of yourself to move forward

ain't waiting another party rigged elections

US makes 10 to 40 airstrikes a day yet no platform adressed this ?

[-] 0 points by factsrfun (8780) from Phoenix, AZ 2 years ago

I know for you it is all about airstrikes for some it is all about guns others abortion all you single issue voters are dumb as dirt.

Just keep in mind there would be no airstrikes today if Nader and the Greens had supported Gore, now we have another chance to deal with wealth inequality this time will we piss it away and end up in war with Iran next?

Hillary Clinton Can't Ignore Bernie Sanders

She doesn't have to - she has all the squawking head pundits of MSM doing it for her. Even though Bernie is drawing tens of thousands of people to hear him speak and HRC is not - the MSM is happy to keep calling her the front runner.

Its the same exact thing that happened to Ron Paul in 2012.

Its almost as if humans learn nothing from history and will continue to repeat it.

Oh wait, that is what happens. Bummer.

[-] 1 points by factsrfun (8780) from Phoenix, AZ 2 years ago

yeah same except Paul never had 28 thousand at his events because he's a lonely tune, exactly same only totally different, and Paul got more minutes than he ever pull in the polls with Bernie it is the exact opposite so the "same" except completely different

[-] 1 points by turbocharger (1756) 2 years ago

The crowds showing at Ron Paul rallys were huge. Basically the same as Bernie right now.

You are in for a rude awakening. It wont be your first but being the useful idiot you are, Im sure you'll come slobbering back for more lol.

[-] 0 points by factsrfun (8780) from Phoenix, AZ 2 years ago

I wonder why you feel the need to lie about the size of Ron Paul's crowds?

No matter Ron Paul is a conservative looney tune racist so who gives a shit about his coverage?

Here's the biggest i can find, a year later in the cycle and the crowd is half the size Bernie is already pulling.

http://www.usnews.com/news/blogs/washington-whispers/2012/08/27/ron-paul-rally-draws-11000-high-emotion

you are going to be so disappointed when your taxes go up

[-] 1 points by factsrfun (8780) from Phoenix, AZ 2 years ago

I did looks like he peaked at about 11,000 as best I could find if you found a bigger number send it along, Bernie passed that long ago and hit 28,000 and better already and he's just getting started. So yeah why do you feel the need to lie about the size of the crowds?

[-] 3 points by turbocharger (1756) 2 years ago

You are missing the point. So here it is again:

Two old dudes whom each party looks as pure, going out and campaigning and getting the biggest crowds out of any of them, all in the name of rallying the troops back to the party base.

Its a very simple strategy, its been used for ages, and yet there you are falling for it.

I am here to educate my friend. The propaganda is deep here.

[-] 0 points by factsrfun (8780) from Phoenix, AZ 2 years ago

MY point is that Ron Paul's crowds were never as big as Bernie's his poll numbers were never as high and Ron Paul was always crazy, so there is no comparison really it is you who thinks there is,and of course there is also the underlining general reality that you are a liar and any who read anything written by you should always consider the fact that you lie often.

[-] 1 points by turbocharger (1756) 2 years ago

I wonder why you find the need to take more of our money and funnel it into that cesspool of corruption in Washington DC?

[-] 1 points by factsrfun (8780) from Phoenix, AZ 2 years ago

"our" money?

from where I sit it looks like the 1% have took about all of the money are you saying you're one of them?

[-] 1 points by turbocharger (1756) 2 years ago

Lol not exactly. Which is why I dont know why you are so happy that our - as in mine and yours- taxes continue to go up?

[-] 1 points by factsrfun (8780) from Phoenix, AZ 2 years ago

Wealthy Americans pay very low taxes, we need more education, healthcare and higher pay in the front lines, the untaxed money of the wealthy is distorting our system to serve the very rich, MUCH higher taxes will be needed to create change.

I'll just bet that you were totally devastated, heartbroken and inconsolable when RP failed in his campaign.

[-] 2 points by turbocharger (1756) 2 years ago

I wasnt campaigning for him, but it was devastating to see how what we view as a democracy is actually a total sham.

Just like the video from the DNC during the convention, on the vote that passed to all the boos.

So with that being said, will you side with Wall St as usual?

[-] 1 points by MattHolck0 (3867) 2 years ago

we conduct 10 to 40 air strikes a day but MSM doesn't report that
