The quote was from before the 2018 elections. thesquanderer Dec 2019 #17
It's closer to 900 than it is to 1,000 - why not use 900? And in one day in November 2018.... George II Dec 2019 #36
Actually, I just googled, and found a number of references that it was *over* a thousand. thesquanderer Dec 2019 #42

Sanders has a relatively poor legislative track record. yardwork Dec 2019 #20
I wonder what his vision of a Sanders presidency is PatSeg Dec 2019 #37
The vision is fairly authoritarian, I think. yardwork Dec 2019 #44
Yes, it would seem so PatSeg Dec 2019 #48
That's a nice way of putting it. George II Dec 2019 #38
He's like the loud guy at the end of the bar-- even when he's right, nobody of any... TreasonousBastard Dec 2019 #59

I'm curious, which candidate do you support? You only post OPs about Bernie, nothing positive Autumn Dec 2019 #18
Do you have anything to say about the post itself, rather than the poster? yardwork Dec 2019 #21
