6. In the era of the Great Depression the socialist party was growing to be quite a threat to the Rs

and the corporations/rich. That is one reason that FDR was elected and why the social programs went through after he was elected. I hope the corps and the rich are running scared right now. Bernie is just the first volley of the revolution.

21. Bernie's party is not socialist but Democratic Socialist. There is a big difference.

Also, he has run as an independed since 1979.

29. I'm aware of that but I doubt that makes any difference to the corporations and the rich. I

suspect that many of those called socialists in the Great Depression were dictionary socialists either.

30. If you're aware of it, why post something that is not true?

That corporations and the rich may lie is no reason for DUers to do as they do.

No clue what a dictionary Socialist is.

23. Its wealthiest special interest group, but its smallest and least important.

As long as we have a clean vote, we outvote them.

Demand a clean vote and don't vote for anyone who sells out our interests.

28. Bernie is not a Roos Perot

 

Perot had no chance of winning.He was just a candidate that pissed off voters could vote for.
Bernie tells the truth and he is the working class candidate and he can win. If he is elected he won't fill his cabinet with Wall Street rejects or former corporate mafia members.

38. Yes Bernie can win!

I worry about fair vote tallying (Die-bold and all hackable voting systems) and the still ongoing republican laws and tricks
that prevent non-elites (often Democrats) from voting.
Seriously, IMO Bernie and his record will reverberate loudly with the majority of Americans. In 2000 we saw the overt cheating and lying by the republicans when they lost the presidency. They had Boosh coronated King by the neo-con SCOTUS.
That "voting block of 85" are ruthless, wealthy criminals who will do anything to prevent an ideal candidate like Bernie Sanders from becoming President.
I consider Bernie "ideal" because of his integrity and dedication to serve his constituents rather than determine (with an
account full of money) what "is best for America ."

grand dream of total control of the earth and they're not about to have it taken from them.

42. To those that still think a Bernie win is impossible..

...the impossible just happened in Alberta, Canada. The New Democratic Party won a majority. They are a party further to the left than your Democratic Party. Bernie would fit in well.

Alberta is Canada's Texas. Complete with cowboys, Big Oil...oh and a non-stop Conservative Party majority for the last 43 f'n years.
Its where our asshole Con Prime Minister is from. He who was fear mongering about a terrible disaster this would be for his home province when it started to look like an NDP win.

People deep down want real change. Look how fast support for legal marijuana and same sex marriage flipped over in your country. The tide can change quickly. Hillary better quickly start taking her liberal base seriously, or she may be run over again. Don't think they didn't notice this turn of events in their neighbour to the north.
