What is Bernie Sanders number one issue?

This discussion thread was locked as off-topic by In_The_Wind (a host of the General Discussion forum).

Not a full member so I can't post a poll apparently. And I'd rather hear peoples own opinions rather than funneling them into a few choices.

I'll start.

I see Bernie standing for economic justice first and foremost. Breaking up the banks, reining in Wall Street, the $15 minimum wage, single pater, and free college are all rooted in economic justice.

The first two are obvious imho, the third is not only about justice but also about economic success as a stronger working class makes for a stronger economy for everyone.

Single payer and free college are also obviously about economic justice. We don't want people dying because they can't afford a platinum health care plan and we don't want people to fore go an education because their parents don't belong to a country club.

So what's your position? What would you say is Sanders number one issue?

4. My point is that this topic doesn't belong in GD, it belongs in GDP.

6. I disagree

GDP is about the competition, the horse race. People tend to be more combative there.

The question I'm asking should be answerable even if he never threw his hat in the ring.

8. In which case, you'd want either the Democrats general forum, or his specific group.

If you're really looking for a answer, post and look in those forums.

...GD/GDP rule doesn't apply to you or what?

Why not just move it to the forum it belongs in?

7. Because this is not about the primaries.

This is about one issue. Not about the contest.
