    Which was my point. Sanders view of the economy is hardly "Independent". He supports the Democratic agenda in that regard without counterpoints. You're correct, I already knew that. Apparently others didn't.

    That's because you probably fall somewhere in the middle. One party doesn't want to "punish" the rich, the other doesn't want to "punish" the poor. So the rest of us get squeezed harder and harder.

    It sure does--you feel like you are TEA--I agree.
    Take a look at the trillions that have been given to the rich and corporations your party supports.

    Sen. Coburn-R-OK is for cutting off these loopholes and tax giveaways.
    He supports current GOP Ways and Means Chair Dave Camp's tax rewrite bill that TEAs and McConnell have directed Boehner to sit on.
    A tax rewrite that everyone in DC agrees we need .

    You mean in the middle politically? That I do. I fall above the middle financially. If my taxes were raised again, it wouldn't be right. I'm not looking to punish anyone, including myself.

    What other Democrats push the trickle down economic theory that he's countering?
    You can r ead a thread like this and not conclude that Sanders is a controversial character?

    Trickle down economics has been the order of the day for some time now, regardless of whether the Tweedledumocrats or the Tweedledeeblicans were in power.

    Please return to the topic, which is Bernie Sanders. Thanks.

    You can start another thread about trillions that the Libertarian party has given to the rich and the corporations. I'll see you in that one.

    Sure they do--yer just twisting their words as you commonly do.
    You know damn well that trickle-down has been an abject disaster given to us by your GOP.

    It's been more like a torrential up since the GOP hedge-funders like Romney came to town during Reagan .

    Forget the politics, the financials don't work at all. You have to know you would be voting for a terrible outcome down the road.
    As far as the debt thing goes, it's because it's so hard for us to imagine it going anywhere. When you hear how much in debt we are, at some point, your eyes just start to gloss over.

    He's not a controversial character. In fact, he's one of the least controversial because he admits to being a socialist, something most of them who are can't admit to.

    He doesn't oppose the Democrats on much, and never has. He's a Democrat to the core when it comes to his voting. People who pretend otherwise and cheer him like he's some Maverick are clueless. If he was elected POTUS, it would be no different than Elizabeth Warren or Hillary Clinton or Joe Biden. And like Obama, his hand would be forced to do things he wouldn't want to do because we don't elect dictators in this country, as you know.

    He's an interesting old guy, but he's a Democrat vote from top to bottom. Nothing independent about him.
