    In all fairness, he is right, and it happens so rarely that we should acknowledge it. Bernie Sanders is not a Democrat (although he caucuses with them), but a member of the Socialist Party.

    Now, what I'd love to do is compare Sanders' voting record with Obama's (for the brief period that Obama was a senator) and see how often those records diverged. If there's no difference, then perhaps someone can explain to me why Sanders is a Socialist, but Obama isn't.

    I did not say Sanders is a Democrat; I said he is a Democratic Socialist and is a proponent of EU governments.

    Secondly, We We said that this socialist should speak out more often. My response was; are you deaf, dumb and blind. Bernie Sanders runs his mouth off quite often.

    Call him what you want but he is the biggest fuck up since Jimmy Carter. The majority of Americans have that view.

    Right because nationalizing control of whole industries is a very capitalist thing to do. But you are right. He's not a socialist. He's a Fascist. He lets people keep ownership - and regulates and controls the industry by government fiat and regulation. It's socialism with a capitalist veneer.
    Stand up for what is right, even if you have to stand alone.

    The deal is, Obama wants the U.S. to be a European-style socialist country which is funny when you think about it. How is that style of socialism working out for Italy, Greece, and Spain?
    The Obama Administration: Deny. Deflect. Blame.

    Biggest fuck up is an understatement regarding Obumble.

    Much more dangerous than Carter. Carter was just an idiot. B Hussein obama is just smart enough to know what he wants to do. In my opinion, this administration is bordering on dictatorship. He's bypassing Congress at will with little criticism from them for his actions.

    We're one election from losing this Democratic Republic. We've got to have at least one House of Congress. If we don't take back majority in at least one in November to sidetrack his agenda, it could be over.

    This. Even if he's not a socialist... let's put it like this: I'm waiting for him to claim a rabbit attacked him.

    "The individual has always had to struggle to keep from being overwhelmed by the tribe. To be your own man is hard business. If you try it, you will be lonely often, and sometimes frightened. But no price is too high to pay for the privilege of owning yourself." Rudyard Kipling - (1865-1936)

    Context doesn't matter to this liberal it seems/ as long as it satisfies his godless dreams/ like monkeys throwing sh!t as castles in air/ as long as he throws/that is the extent of his care.
