After his claim that white people don't know what it's like to live in poverty, I lost what little respect I had left for him.

I thought he was better than to use identity politics, but I guess the two women who stole his podium last year (BLM) whipped him into a slave.

true, I think the time he spent "learning" about such things and from martin luther king? that made him see only this way or something only they can have (more or less).

Not really steal but I guess they where quite rude and much of it seemed "just because his white", while its a bit dispointing that he had to control things as well (don't think he was in the "lead" to say when and what to do like closing it down afterwards, and wish he could atleast try a better approache to the teens/youngsters that was there)

He probably is the best thing that could happen to the US. At least out of the available options it is an easy choice.

Compared to the choices from the Democratic and Republican side he seems to be the best choice (Don't like any of them, but hey the lesser of evils I guess). Though Gary Johnson and Jill Stein have caught my eye, just need to do some more research on them.

Where are his foreign policies?


There are some foreign policy statements on his campaign website: berniesanders.com/issues/

You can find his voting record in Congress at: www.congress.gov/member/bernard-sanders/S000033

There are lots of articles about his foreign policy views online, such as this one against Sanders' position that Saudi Arabia should have a larger role in the Syrian civil war and the Middle East, which I also think is a bad idea: www.counterpunch.org/2015/08/27/foreign-policy-sanders-style-backing-saudi-intervention/

lets see. he is against war. which is a plus, I do not see why it is so bad for America to mind its own business.
he is for blacks, hello he was arrested for protesting and marching with MLK. if that is not for blacks idk what is
unlike Hillary who called you guys criminals in the 90s and had a high incarceration rate along with her husband. she has now simply BOUGHT the black vote. if she gets in office she will probably forget about you guys. sorry. its just to get votes
he is for the environment, which unfortunately we are past the point of no return, the least we can to is pro long the consequences.
every republican is against the environment and some even want to get rid of the environmental protection agency and undo the agreement between the usa and like over 100 other countries to help that got agreed on a few months ago. you cant just do that. do you have any idea how much damage that could do if we got rid of the EPA?
for those of you who don't believe it, which is bloody moronic imo, think of it this way at least. it is a business opportunity, with new technology to be made that will create new jobs
Bernie is for women , and higher minimum wage. sorry but the cost of practically EVERYTHING has gone up, from food , to rent to collage, some of you will say "well it has gone up a dollar or 2" well that is not enough to pay for what we need now. yes I understand "well what about fire men etc etc"
well, their wages should go up too. of course they shouldn't stay the same.
as for education. oh for god sake. you still have to study and pass , but if no one can get in or will go in debt without a doubt ,people cant get the education they NEED for a job besides mcdonalds . because every thing now a days requires you to have had a college education.


yet it is nearly impossible or extremely hard and you are fucked for a good portion of your life if not all of it paying off debt

even 20-30 years ago people could work1-2 jobs and pay for college


so yes, I am pro bernie

I think Bernie is a genuinely nice guy and as honest a politician as you will get. That being said, I think his policies are too radical. I've voted for Republican presidential candidates 3 out of 4 times in my life but this year, I would vote for Hilary and Bernie over any of the Republican candidates still running. Of Rubio, Trump, and Cruz, I would vote for Rubio. The only person I would never vote for is Cruz- that dude is a psychopath.

Bernie is probably the lesser evil of all the choices. As I said in some other post however, the gridlocked house/senate/congress will cause any president to be completely useless. So that's a thing.
Bernie has also been put down a lot by media, and ignored. . . . Which is kind of sad. The truth is totally masked by the media.

Just a worse version of a 'tax and spend' democrat. The U.S. already has a national debt we can't possibly pay off. Mr. 'Redistribute Wealth' won't do a thing to fix that. If I personally managed my money the way the U.S. Government does, my creditors would have cut up my credit cards and repossessed everything I own by now.

His heart seems to be in the right place for a lot of issues...and honestly, f**k Clinton for Bengazi.

But he won't get it. America wants either NuHitler or someone who will probably ban all anime because JESUS before they let a socialist in.
