19. The problem for some of us older voters

is that we'very seen all this before (George McGovern, Jesse Jackson) and every time the good guy with impeccable leftist credentials lost and we got a horror of a Republican instead. Not going to fall for that again, now when the stakes are higher than they've ever been.

And while the socialist label may be offputting to some, what's offputting to some others is that Bernie's no more an actual socialist than Obama is. He's stuck the label on himself to bolster his image as a rebel and outsider, but it's nothing but political decor.

For us, there's the first and most obvious misrepresentation in his campaign. And I tell you true, if Bernie and his acolytes succeed in turning us all over to the Republicans, there will be hell to pay for generations.
