    Re: Liberal Vermont Senator Sanders may seek U.S. presidency in 2016

    IMHO, This is just more of the curtain being pulled back on liberal progressivism. Look at the progs in here that support, and even yearn for a truly "socialist" lurch in this country.

    Kind of reminds me of the early 20th century, where you had Wilson's "goon squads" out there beating up dissenters, and total reprobate's like Sanger, and Shaw calling for people to "justify their existence" to a board...Truly American, right?
    Americans are so enamored of equality that they would rather be equal in slavery than unequal in freedom.

    Discussion?

    Article is here.
    I find it hard to believe that a progressive actually has a shot at the presidency.... The only hope the democrats have is Billary and she will be a long shot at best, just as long as republicans can find a way to nominate a libertarian leaning candidate.

    IF these clowns even think of nominating a progressive or RINO then they meet the criteria for insanity...... Those philosophies have been tried and failed from both sides. It's time for something new....

    And libertarians really need to stop running and associating themselves with Republicans - that within itself is a good way to destroy your chances....

    At work?! Or you have a stand by at home? You're always stressing those knees, sorry dude, hope it's not too bad.

    Sorry...Sanders is simply a myopic liberal hack. He doesnt want to stop excessive campaign contributions and involvement, he wants to stop republican donors. He isnt opposed to bankers and brokers and special interest groups...he is just opposed to the ones that support GOP causes. He is no different than all the rich democrats living in their mansions separated from the masses and bemoaning all the 'little people' and how unfair the world is for them.

    That being said...I TRULY hope he does run. It should make for an interesting primary to see which one of their own the democrats start eating because they represent a threat to the party choice. I can see a rerun of 1992. Run Jesse Run!!!
    Yes well, you don't think that GOPer's eat their own during a primary?

    And there's this.

    Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) said today he will introduce legislation to break up banks that have grown so big that the Justice Department has not pursued prosecutions for fear an indictment would harm the financial system.

    The 10 largest banks in the United States are bigger now than before a taxpayer bailout following the 2008 financial crisis. At the time Congress, over Sanders' objection, approved a $700 billion bank rescue because of concerns by some that the financial institutions were too big to fail. Another $16 trillion from the Federal Reserve propped up financial institutions.

    Senator Bernie Sanders Bill Would Break Up Big Banks
    Of course they do. Its always a freak show. As a registered libertarian and one who doesnt vote major party, dont I deserve a little bit of entertainment along the way? Hell...maybe we can get Dennis Kucenich to enter the race too.

    Wonderful. Now...make sure you post all of Bernies comments specifically targeting the rich DEMOCRATS and those democrats that receive that PAC money or the rich democrats that are working every bit as hard as the Koch brothers.

    Yes, I suppose you do deserve a little entertainment. Do you have some Bernie quotes where he targets republicans and gives dem's a pass?

    Why do those on the left think that idiots like Hillary and Barack are like Republicans if they aren't voting like socialists? Maybe it's because there are so many RINO's, afraid of their own shadows, that vote like Democrats?

    Try EVERY quote he ever makes on 'the problem'. Oh...he is QUICK to point out the other guys. But he doesnt point out the 'in' crowd.

    Start with his own website.

    What Do the Koch Brothers Want? - Senator Bernie Sanders of Vermont

    notice there isnt a link to "George Soros"? Or any other wealthy democrat contributors? PACs?
