What really needs to change - well before you worry about the economy - is, um, brain functioning.
Or, alternatively, you can continue to tune in your AM dial and catch the latest from anonymous Venezuelians.
Do you realize that being a pretentious pseudo-intellectual is extremely off-putting? And that many Dems are turned off by the type and are gravitating towards Hillary even though she is worse than Bernie.

I anxiously (don't) your reply, because as always, the pseudo-intellectual crowd needs to get the last word in. Always.

Glad to oblige. I am a high school drop out, ex-military combat vet, blue-collar, retired self-employed guy. Can't keep up with my rational, logical observations? So far, you haven't been able to parse out a single issue or contribute to actual discourse. Let me know if you have supportable information to contest.

I thought many Dems turned off by that crowd are going with Trump.

Bernie supporters have been polled in this regard. The % willing to even consider Trump in the event Sanders does not win the Dem nomination is: 12%.

So no, not "many" at all.

Note, however, that should Hillary somehow manage to lose her nomination, exactly none of her supporters will go to Trump. A percentage might refuse to vote for Bernie in protest, but most will.

thats the thing, many young americans think socialism is "cute", while many citizens in these socialist countries are literally starving...

and yes, i know Sanders says he's a "democratic" socialist, but please, save me the BS.......

granted, the economy needs to change, but not the way bernie wants...

o and a poll was conducted that said over 60% of bernie's followers would not support tax increases?! lol don't they know that is how allllll of bernie's wishlist will be paid?! dumb (but bernie supporters are educated, right?) lmao

Why is it that everyone who feels the need to crap on Bernie is so uninformed and uninterested in becoming informed?

Again, I'm not a hardcore Berner - I just like him considerably better than Hillary.

Personally, I consider myself a highly informed voter because I've decided to focus on third-party coverage of American elections. The only way you can get truly impartial information is to ask someone who has absolutely no skin in the game - that is to say, international news outlets are far less concerned with the outcome of our election than we are, and have much less motivation to manipulate their coverage. IMO, Al-Jazeera English and BBC have the best US election coverage.

You are uninformed. You heard some random, unknown person on talk radio say "Bernie is like Hugo Chavez" and decided it must be true because you heard it on the radio. You clearly know nothing about Bernie or Chavez.
