    I will say, I'm very very cautiously, skeptically intrigued by Sander's candidacy.

    However, one thing I am absolutely certain of... If there is a Clinton or a Bush (and we have both) in the mix, there are high level games being played that have nothing to do with anything being sold to the public.
    Do we have any choice but to move on?

    Obama's healthcare solution was born in conservative think tanks. The progressive solution would have been universal healthcare.

    He resonates because of the ignorance of the masses, the same fools that let Obama in the White House, that cheer for Hillary, that back "punishing the rich" as some sort of positive move for the country.

    I've got news for ya, the wealth redistribution happened when the "rich" were allowed to game the system and bleed out the middle class. Executives making 200-400 times their average paycheck to paycheck employee, are not being punished to ask them to pay the same tax rate or more... It's a return to balance.

    The wealthy stole it from the middle class through tax breaks unprecedented in U.S. history, driving free trade to outsource good jobs with good benefits to other countries, collapsing the economy and markets (more than once) with fraudulent investments and destroying middle class wealth and retirement while consolidating assets and buying up bankrupt assets...

    And you want to cry victim because we want it back? Amazing

    Please explain this to me. How does the existence of Warren Buffett or Bill Gates in any way inhibit your ability to live your life as you wish?

    Scandinavian Countries are turning RIGHT if you haven't noticed.

    Why is that ? And why do you people only use the small North European counties as a example ?

    Why not use Venezuela, Greece, Spain, Italy, France, Cuba and Argentina ?

    Could you specify which left wing policies have harmed the middle class? Please be sure to include how they've harmed the middle class.

    Wow... Not at all what I've said. When you can be intellectually honest and not distort the meaning and obvious context of what others say, I'll renegade you in conversation.

    I'm talking taxes, tariffs, free trade exodus of good jobs, economic collapses stripping wealth and assets from the middle class to give corporations welfare.... And you pull out the tired old gates and buffet dodge?

    Pathetic.
