Simple question, but you never hear anything about Bernie Sanders trip to the old Soviet Union/Russia during the height of the Cold War in the 1980s? Im also curious if Bernie Sanders met with or unknowingly met with Soviet Russian Intelligence Officers during his stay in the Soviet Union.

My political views are Center-Right, but I dont care for fake news from the Left or Right, personal opinions, that are passed off as news/facts or straight up lying about whatever issue. I just want the facts, in order to come up with what I believe or how I interpret an issue, for myself.

If Trump did have any dealings with Russian government officials, Id like to know and this goes for anybody running against him from the Democrat side of the fence as well... This also includes any dealings with any Communist Chinese government officials that can be viewed as questionable.

I feel that this is an important issue and an issue that the American people should know prior to casting a vote for whoever and for whatever office.

Bernie is an old school, New York, Secular, Jewish BOLSHEVIK steeped in the Communist tradition. However, the media doesn't want us to talk about that or even know about it. It's ok for him to have his Dacha on the lake, and great wealth, but nobody else should.

Because its stupid and silly. Especially at a time when anyone with a brain in America knew that the Soviet Union was opening up to the outside world at that time.

Sanders is to the right of people like Franklin D Roosevelt. There is nothing "communist" advocating for a stronger public safety net for the disabled, the elderly, the sick and the poor, regardless of race, gender and creed like Sanders is doing. Its just human decency.

No, you've been brainwashed. It is not "for the people". It is to create dependency, and control of the populace. Sanders is advocating for every "free" program for ILLEGAL ALIENS, Reparations, etc. It is a extreme economic shift like Obama wanted, by putting total control of the economy into the hands of GOVERNMENT.

This is not about a safety net. WE ALREADY HAVE THAT. This is about the consolidation of wealth and power.

And we never heard anything about bill clinton's trip to the old Soviet Union/Russia during the height of the Cold War when he dropped out of his Rhodes's Scholarship.


Why would that be the FIRST thing he did?

Why is it you guys see a commie under the bed of everyone you don't like?

IIRC, back when the Eisenhower and the Chamber of Commerce had this sister city thing going is when a delegation from Bernie's town went to Russia.

Be interesting to see how many other American towns had sister cities. Just check out Sister Cities International.

Obama was owned by Wall Street, what are you talking about?

No, we dont have a proper public safety net. If you're born disabled you get a maximum of $700 a month to survive on. Thats appalling. Do you think its great?

There is nothing communist about any part of his policy platform. By your logic, most of the world is communist.

Russia switched from being a left wing dictatorship to a right wing dictatorship. Now, when Russia gives orders, half of Americans obey by following Russia’s installed puppet regime in Putingrad D.C.
