Bernie supporters believe the system is rigged, talk to them......Bernie was convinced to step down and you know it!
One calls himself a revolutionary. Since when does a revolutionary want "bigger" government? That's new. Revolutionary's usually want to oust overbearing government, instead Bernie joined in to partake.

Is using political power to raise taxes on small businesses helping or hurting big business. It's help big business both on the employment scene (less jobs resulting in lower wages) so that hurts the worker bee. It helps big business because the little guy gets crushed. The thing that makes me laugh is the very people who rant against big business support the very policies that hurt the little guy and they still haven't figured it out.

It can go both ways you know. Yes I agree there are people who are paid way more than they are worth. I'd consider giving 1 hours speeches to big banks to be one example. What could one person say in an hour that would be worth $100k or more?

If you work hard, you will also have a great life. I'm sorry that some of you make poor life decisions, but that is all on you. No, Trump will not help you. Sorry.

The hardest worker I know works five days a week in a foundry and the other two days in a convenience store. So much for hard work producing six-figure incomes.
