Please don't change the topic.

You said, we came close, Bernie Sanders almost won. My point is that No, he was not the answer. NO politicians are the answer. Changing the system might be the answer, but it is not realistic.

By the way, In 2001, Sanders did not support the vote in Congress to oppose the war in Afghanistan. Congresswoman Barbara Lee stood alone! This vote was followed by his support for appropriations to support boththe war in Afghanistan and Iraq. In 2003 he supported the resolution that gave support to George W. Bush in both Iraq and in the larger war against terrorism, although Sanders has been a critic of the Iraq War.

Then Sanders supported only a gradual withdrawal from Iraq. When impeachment was on the so-called table against George W. Bush in 2006, he said that impeachment was “impractical.”

If you destroyed your neighbors house, you are coming out of your house one way or the other.

Quit destroying theirs and they don't demand something in return.

I'm certainly not inviting him in to kill me in my living room, even if I got it coming.

You sound like a parrot. No matter what others say and no matter what point others are making, you repeat the same thing over and over.

That poster did not disagree with you, sheesh. He said, it is the main reason why we cannot let them in.

You said a president can not make a difference. It is not changing the subject to show that a president can end a war.

Unfortunately starting stupid wars isn't impeachable. Granted it should be.

It's not going to stop them. When you insist on doing stupid things, bad things happen.

I think you have a weird way of debating. LOL You took one sentence out of the entire post without understanding or addressing the point the poster is making.

well, maybe you have the magic power to let us know which president we should pick next time.

All you said is based on hindsight, with all due respect. and Hindsight is always 20/20.
