Those votes are certainly not going to come from Republicans that's for sure. But don't let the Democrat's fool you, no matter who they nominate they all march to the same tune as the little communist curmudgeon from Vermont. Oh sure they'll try and distance themselves from him but if elected they'll go right along with the same policies that he espouses.

You just wait and see what happens when some 155 million people or so are forced to give up their *employer based healthcare coverage to government run healthcare. When they're all lumped together with the illegal invaders and those who never put a dime into the system such as single mothers with a dozen children. Whoopee, we'll all be on medicaid and become wards of the state. This doesn't even take into consideration the hit that the middle class will take when they are forced to pay for it. There will be no way around that as there are not enough rich people to tax into oblivion to fund it.

The little communist curmudgeon doesn't care about people. All he cares about is power, control and his own personal aggrandizement. Indeed he is condescending, arrogant and a hypocrite of the worst order. What amazes me is that there are people in this country that support him? Just the sound of his voice makes me want to puke. Whenever he speaks I either change the channel or turn off the volume. How in the world did this country come to this? I'm sure that both you and I know the answer to that.
But you hit on the problem....too many liberals are young and dumb, and they don't understand that there's no free lunch. They like the sound of "health care for all! Fee college! Reparations!" without comprehending that free stuff is unaffordable.

Thats why he is advocating for higher taxes on himself and refuses to be bought off by the Wall Street donor class. Unlike the rich and the powerful who overwhelmingly dominate Congress today.

It really takes integrity to get where he has gotten and still fight for the common man without buying into the corrupt ways of DC.

But he gladly took money from Hillary Clinton who was bought off by the Wall Street donor class.

Well, good for you, because 2018 left the stock market in the red, but maybe Trump loyalists use a different market

It is a verifiable fact that the stock market did a heck of a lot better under Obama than Trump.

Sounds like a lot of sour grapes to me.



I've made a lot of money in the stock market since Trump was elected. Maybe you listened to the idiots at the NYT and sold out when, like they told you to, when Trump won.

Trump donates his entire salary and donated more in one donation that Benie has in his entire life? Where do moonbats come up with stupid chit like this? Quit allowing rich liberals to manage your life for you and do some research for Christís sake.

Look almost all of the FBI leadership and DOJ under Obama are going to jail. Trump wasnít charged with anything after Muller and his band of moonbats turning over every rock. The chickens are coming to roost for the Obama DOJ, FBI AND Hillary. Itís OVER!

Why look only to 2018? I mean since Trumo took over - up around 30%.

And Obama couldn't help but see the market rise. It was coming off a deep recession.

I recently received an email claiming that Bernie Sanders bought a $600,000 summer home shortly after endorsing Hillary Clinton. Did Clinton pay him for his support?

It is true that Sanders bought a $600,000 summer home, but there is no evidence at all that Clinton paid for his endorsement, according to the fact-checkers TruthOrFiction.com and Snopes.com. Nor could we find any indication that Sanders has been unethical in this regard.

Trump fans will buy ANYTHING which was what Trump counted on...

So how do you feel about Trump and the charity funds that were meant for kids with cancer? You never did address it.

And every time you utilize public infrastructure, rely upon law enforcement, visit a library, etc., etc., etc... you are being socialist.
