25. You don't sound like a Bernie supporter to me

I couldn't care less about the Republican's tax and spend attacks. Let them. We either stand for things or we don't.

His college plan is taking us back to how it was not so long ago, a great idea and wonderful that he will fight for it.

The incarceration promise was an eye-opener, very ambituous. I don't know if he can reach those numbers. I sure woudn't trust the source you linked.

For one thing, he can decriminalize pot, which would have major impacts not only in the fedderal prisons but would riipple throughout the state prisons.

I also saw a report suggesting that he could work with Democratic governors to get their incarceration policies changed. and that there are so many people in state prisons in California and New York alone that getting just those two states to comply would go much of the way towards meeting his goals.

Comparing Obama's broken promises to Bernie is not right. Obama ran to Hillary's left, but it was mostly a campaign ploy, he saw a political opening and took it. Along the way he also took huge amounts of corporate money. As soon as he was elected he rewarded his large donors and named a progressve hater Rahm Emmanuel to be his chief of staff, who called disappointed leftists looking for their hope and change "f'n retards".

There is simply no comarison there to the Bernie campaign. Bernie is not positioning himself to the left of Hillary for political gain, he is reluctantly running fro POTUS to advance the issues he has a lifetime record of working for, and he correctly assessed that if he didn't run, nobody would give voice to those issues. He is not taking corporate money. He will be the same man when he assumes office.
