    Bernie Sanders packs thousands into a Denver gymnasium

    It's truly encouraging to know Bernie's message is reaching so many people. Maybe it's not too late for us to stop our overlords and their conservative minions.

    Bernie Sanders packs thousands into a Denver gymnasium - The Washington Post

    Bernie Sanders, who’s emerged as Hillary Rodham Clinton’s chief rival for the Democratic presidential nomination, drew an estimated crowd of more than 5,000 people to the University of Denver on Saturday night for what appeared to be one of the largest political rallies of the 2016 cycle. Sanders, the self-described democratic socialist senator from Vermont, delivered a fiery speech in a packed university gymnasium, where he decried the greed of the billionaire class, saying it is “destroying this nation.” Besides the more than 3,000 people in the gym, others listened in an adjacent atrium, where speakers were set up, and on a nearby lacrosse field, where the speech was streamed on the scoreboard, according to university officials and campaign aides.

    Climate, changes. It takes a particularly uneducated population to buy into the idea that it's their fault climate is changing and further political solutions can fix it.

    I thought you said Sanders was in Denver, not Scandinavia.

    Sanders wants the United States to emulate the Scandinavian countries. If we want to see what his world looks like we need only look at those countries.

    Great to hear. And I bet nearly every one of those people is like myself - a person who campaigned for Obama in 08 and was led to believe he would be the second coming of FDR. Instead we got the second coming of Jimmy Carter.

    **shrugs*** you allowed yourselves to be duped. There were lots of warnings prior to his election. Though Hillary would have been much worse.

    I have not followed Bernie Sanders too long, but what he has to say resonates with a significant number in the middle class and minorities. I love his stance on climate change especially. I hope I have not misunderstood your post. Are you saying Sanders' ideology advocates a world of "tyranny"? Or he sees Republican's objection to his ideals one of ruthlessness? "Tyranny" means despotism, absolute power, dictatorship, cruelty, brutality, and etc etc. Senator Sanders is a decent human being and politician. Unfortunately, his brand of liberalism is not exactly mainstream and I do not believe he will get the nomination in this lifetime. He is, however, a wakeup call, the person alerting others to future dangers and approaching problems unless change is made. Would you be so gracious as to clarify exactly what you do mean? I'm still a little foggy from a lack of sleep so bear with me. Thank you.
