    Oh yes, the collectivist oligarchs are all the rage now, doncha know?

    All the things you're saying are true, but who would have ever guessed that this nation would elect a Black man named Barack Hussein Obama with a Kenyan father and a Black militant preacher for his best friend?

    Off all the candidates from both parties - I am most intrigued with Sanders. Alas , he is not in the monetary or political insiders club methinks. (Just a hunch as it doesn't ['feel'] like he has the slime factor. - you know the politics etc make for strange ________ factor)

    Because most Americans don't realize what they really want.

    To quote Thomas Friedman (of NYT), "Americans live in Russia, believe they live in Sweden, and think they should be living in Kibbutz."

    When you pander to the idiocracy you end up looking like an idiot.

    Bernie is someone, like Warren, who appeals to the left base, but who is too off center to get a nomination. His debates with Hillary will be worth watching, while the GOP debates will be the only comedy show on TV I'll watch.

    Good quote: "You know, I think many people have the mistaken impression that Congress regulates Wall Street. In truth that's not the case. The real truth is that Wall Street regulates the Congress."
    That is true. That is also why they US needs publicly financed campaigns.

    I'll vote for Hillary or Bernie. I haven't decided which.

    The great thing about Bernie is that he will force Hillary to move to the left In some areas. For me, that is a good thing.

    The Republican clown bus will force the Republican candidates to move so far to the right that they will become unelectable in the general election. They have so many candidates that a reasonable candidate will have to become very shrill to be heard.

    Bernie Sanders is hands down the best Presidential candidate.

    I just don't think that he can beat Hillary.
