    Your truth is false! The fact of the matter is nothing is free, ever. Someone has to work to produce an income that can be taxed. If you haven’t noticed we are already overtaxed because the government has overspent. Even if you adapt your crazy notion of taking ALL the money the rich has, it would not begin to pay for what you Bernie’s want.

    The fact is that Bernie will have to borrow trillions to pay for the freebies he wants to give away. The fact is, there is just not enough money to buy the votes he wants to purchase by pandering to the entitlement crowd.

    You bullies that will take money away from hard working middle class people are just plum wrong in your belief that the American working stiff is going to sit by idly and let you left wingers walk all over them.

    And, everybody has the same rights to education and healthcare. We only need to go out and apply ourselves!

    Bernie is such a BAD idea!!!

      I really hope he gets elected and you can see how wrong you are. Of course you won’t admit it, but you will be wrong. Yes, those of us in the middle – which isn’t really the middle anymore, it’s the lower middle because the middle class is evaporating – are paying our fair share. But, there are people who aren’t. The Donald Trump’s of this nation aren’t paying a fair share. The 1% own more wealth than the great majority of this country. Why? How? They have gained on the backs of the middle class you supposedly champion. Do you know any lobbyist who is working for the middle class? Well, there aren’t any. Have our wonderful representatives in Washington done anything lately that benefits you directly? Most likely not unless you earn over a million a year. Why have executive salaries far surpassed workers earnings in the last 20 years? Not everyone has an equal playing field here buddy. You are the reason that the middle class is shrinking because you don’t know jack about Bernie.

        I should not say it but I will. He does have the best plan for Social Security and Medicare that I have seen. It just makes good sense to raise the cap for funding. It is pretty painless for the middle class and makes the rich pay their fair share. It just goes to show that a insane person can have a good idea once in awhile too.

    The amount of hatred that surfaces at election time makes me sick.

    No one has to agree with each other, but if you’re going to disagree-try not sounding like big fat cry babies making sh#t up to discredit someone.

    The truth is nothing is free with Sanders. It’s fairly taxed. The only difference is he wants EVERY ONE to have the same rights to education and healthcare. The rich shouldn’t get richer in corrupt tax breaks, and the poor deserve a fighting chance to at the very least have health standards.

    The majority of closely compared countries have sucessful socialized medicine, and education.

    If you want to state your political point, try sounding less like a over zealous psychopath, and be reasonable with your words.

        The site leans towards opinion, rather than news. This makes it a blog site to attack people. Real news surces state the facts and give you the information to form opinion. the number one reason I’m not a paid member of this site, is I’m not going to pay to be trolled by the same 4 or 5 overly opinionated people that just like to attack people.

    That blog was total bobbly goop. Your made up definition is just that, made up!

    Your foolish notion that 5% is in control is way off base. While there are a lot of wealthy people in the markets, their are a huge percentage (95%) of our population that go to work every day and their 401k, pensions, and savings are invested in the very markets you would destroy and blame for our counties success.

    You Bernies want to shit in your own nest.

    You are foolish and very misguided! Don’t be dragging the rest us down the sewer with you.

    Socialism as a dirty word means those who believe it to be aren’t comprehending what constitutes as a “Socialized” mechanism. They pick and choose what attributes of socialism they’ll allow versus those they won’t allow…favoring large corporate interests which they worship as the apex triangle idol foundation which the entire nation’s soul rests on. This has been skillful voodoo manipulation by the 5% who control everything and the minds of everyone. For example…give land to logging companies, gas drilling companies and oil companies out of the public coffers but refuse land to poor people who want to homestead. Give public money to massive law enforcement agencies for hi-tech military toys, but refuse money to citizen police review boards. It’s all found in the skillful manipulation of allocation and attribution.

    While grammar and spelling is important when expressing oneself, it does not create wisdom.

    @buffalobill70 and you other Bernies

    To support Bernie Sanders defies any understanding of economics and how our American way of business is accomplished. Currently we call it Capitalism. What Mr. Sanders proposes only serves to continue the destruction of ambition and the American work ethic.

    Free College? Really? Private colleges cost about $40,000 per year while Public College cost about $10,000 per year. (Give or take)
    The taxpayers are already subsidizing that $30,000 per year per student difference in Public Colleges. Is it unrealistic to expect an individual to contribute to their own future and well being? After all, self esteem is something you earn.

    I too am a war vet, 70 years young, registered independent and could never vote for a devout Socialist.

    We have both lived long enough to see the destruction that Socialism has caused around the world. IT JUST DON’T WORK and never will!

    He’s been in government for 25 years. He’s part of the problem people. He was there when they all voted themselves a massive pay raise and Obamacare exemptions. Now he whines about income inequality. He created it!!

    Not to mention the fact that he will be 75 years old when the election rolls around.

    If you take advice from Susan Sarandon, you deserve what you get.

      You are patently wrong. I am not on welfare, never have been and never will be. I supported Bernie before he even announced his candidacy. He knows how the government works and has plans in place to pay for what he is asking. Even the economist whose figures were used in a Wall Street Journal article against Sanders says Sanders’ proposals will SAVE the U.S. 5 trillion dollars. http://www.huffingtonpost.com/gerald-friedman/the-wall-street-journal-k_b_8143062.html

            LOL at asking these clowns to “read” and “learn”. Their only defense against Bernie is to scream SOCIALIST as loud as they can. Luckily the number of young, educated voters out there is rising and the number of ignorant old conservatives keeps dwindling as they die off. The young and educated can see through the lies of everyday politics and realize the system is fundamentally broken and working only to favor the super rich and their corporate buddies. The young haven’t bought the lie that the poor are their worst enemy.

      First off “week” is a time of period equal to 7 days. While “weak” is “lacking the power to perform physically demanding tasks; lacking physical strength and energy” or “liable to break or give way under pressure; easily damaged” or “lacking intensity or brightness” or “contrasted with strong.” If you are going to troll at least learn to troll with the proper wording for it makes a better statement and shows that your at least educated.

      Next, you show look at what the candidates are not saying. It says more then what they are saying. Look at Trump his silence speaks volumes. Then look at what they are saying about what matters to you. I would say that education isn’t high on your list but, welfare and food stamps are so you might want to see where they stand on that. Then look to see exactly how likely their ideas are to be put into action. I mean they can say just about anything to get your vote but getting through congress is another matter all together. I mean you might be a my daddy/mommy was a Republican and my daddy’s daddy/ my mommy’s mommy was a Republican and we have been a Republican since we first stepped foot here in American but that doesn’t mean that you have to look at the candidates through party glasses. Looks at them as candidates who do you think would be the best? Not based on party. Not based on any but the way you think….. oh wait that would be Trump for you wouldn’t it I see the writing on the post. You can improve with a little work on your part.

      But, really learn to troll better for next time okay!

        Just Saying… Maybe you should check your grammar and spelling before you attack someone else for what they wrote. In your first paragraph you used “your” where you clearly needed to use “you’re”. Then the beginning of the second paragraph you used “show” when it clearly should have been “should”. So, practice what you preach or you just come off looking like an asshat.
