    I liked Bernie before. But he took it on the chin like a republican when he should have dug in his heels. I still don't trust polls, so I look at performance and pedigree. Biden is the only logical choice I see against Trump unless someone else has been groomed as a ringer. This guy from Indiana maybe.

    I don't think democrats (the voters) have the time to vet out experimental candidates. Remember how Trump made all those republicans look like fools? He even had the gall to mock Ben Carson. These new candidates may think they're ready for his show, but nobody else was. Assuming Trump is "stupid" is precisely why the republican candidates folded so fast. Even Jeb (who happens to actually BE stupid) didn't get adequate support for facing Trump.

    Bernie acts like a grown-up. But that isn't respected in a nation where everyone acts like children all the time.

    People refuse to accept that socialism does work. The poorest people who need it the most worship the 1% and assume any tax means 100% tax. Bernie's ideas are not going away and that terrifies them.

    He is a grown up with established economic ideas. He and AOC are much more qualified to discuss this than Fox news and the average viewer.

    If you too write a book you too can be a socialist millionaire. They can not wrap their head around the idea of being "rich" and paying tax.

    I don't know why anyone should pay taxes when we learn that not only do the largest corporations pay NO taxes--they even get taxpayer money BACK from the government. Talk about one sided chickenshit republican gifts!

    Welcome my son--welcome to the machine.

    1. Write a book to talk shit about capitalism
    2. Use capitalism to sell that book en masse
    3. Become a millionaire

    Pure genius I tell you!

    Are you sure that's what the book says? Again you show how little you understand of economics.

    That's how socialist writers get rich. Talking shit about capitalism, while using capitalism for themselves.

    See my above post. You don't understand what socialism is. And you clearly have never heard Bernie speak about the capitalist parts of his goverment plans. People still have pay grades and compensation for skills.

    You don't read the book you feel you understand it already. I doubt you have even read Marx for the same reason.

    Bernie isnt against capitalism, he's for a capitalist society with social programs that work for everyone

    You know, a mixed market economy. We've talked about this many times before

    He's a broken record. On the other hand, repetition works.
    So if one doesn't has suitable facts (or cares much about integrity on these matters) why not resort to this :p

    Yet he describes himself a socialist over and over again, then when called out on it, his supporters always backpedal to "mixed economy"

    People mock Bernie for allowing those two black girls to speak, but it won points with me. What other politician gives people with no voice his own time to have their voices heard? I don't get how that makes him a beta cuck or whatever. It makes him exceptionally noble in my eyes.
