The money people have all the power. They'll just fix the machines if they don't like the way it's going.

And dislike others, and will certainly vote for him if he's the party nominee, but I doubt he'll be the Democratic nominee and think he'd probably lose to Walker (a catastrophe) or Bush (a mini-catastrophe).

Democracy,species, and Planet . Bernie Sanders stands alone in transparency, a comprehensive plan for the people and actions he will employ, short on rhetoric and slander , he's held more town meetings than any other candidate by far and talks about the other candidates the least, sticking to the issues and connecting issues, he truly explains the big picture .
