Good thing America knows better than elect somebody with a true mental disorder (socialism) right?

 

Bernie's message, that he's gonna fleece ' the rich ' in order to shower free stuff onto the deserving proletariat, is as old as the hills themselves. 

 

Unfortunately the prollies still fall for it and dream of the day that they, the down trodden, the ' people ', will rise up to stick it to wealthy.

Clinton would be closer but trump would body her soundly. Bernie would not even be in the race, that would be the most one sided win in history. Not like he has even a 1% chance of getting the nomination though

 

You should have stahped after the OP. You know nothing, literally NOTHING about politics.

Agreed, but he earned my respect for keeping it real in the debate. I'm glad he exposed Rubio. Somebody that was gaining a lot of undeserved momentum. 

lol I don't know why Christie is even still in the race. He managed to suicide bomb Rubio on the way out doe.

Thats what i dont get.

 

He kept it real there, and i loved it. 

 

But the entire race leading up to that was him placating to the GOP. Totally tried to shill his way through. 

 

Should have been himself and he likely would have done better.

I'm surprised Christie had such a lack of support. To me his answers throughout the debates seemed to contain a lot of common sense. He also came across as someone with a pragmatic approach to resolving issue's.

This. I saw Christie as the #4 or #5, always did very well in the debates

Not surprising really. Hard to forget 6 years of a s*** gubernatorial track record. To liken it to MMA for people that don't follow politics. People don't remember Tito for his recent drivel trying to convince everybody he's one of the best of all time. They remember 6 years of him being a can.

And in response to WTG's ridiculous assertion that it "wouldn't" be a race, Sanders is beating Trump by 8 points in an average of all polls conducted. I'd expect that gap to widen considering Sanders is becoming more popular as the race continues and Trump is becoming less so.

Seriously, this thread is the perfect example of why I have no hope for America as a whole. The grossly ignorant are becoming increasingly louder (on both sides), and the world is noticing. This OP is a prime example of why I think voting should be a privilege and not a right. If a person chooses to vote, I think they should have to take a basic test showing that they actually know a bit about all the parties running, and the definitions of certain words.

Before our last general election a short test did the rounds where you had to match three views on several different topics with the three main parties.

 

The average score was well under 50%....

 

If it was feasible (which maybe it isn't), I'd love the electorate to be able to vote on principles rather than parties or individuals. That way a lot of the personality and hubris would be removed. Of course the huge and possibly insurmountable challenge would be to keep the whole thing neutral. A pre-qualifying test would be the next best thing.

Personally like Bernie.

 

He seems like he has not just good but humane ideas and generally wants to make improvements across the board to the whole country. E.g. Healthcare, gun crime, taxes, veterans.

 

 

People seem dead against him because of taxes but he seems like he's doing this to try and persevere and grow your country's economy and also try and give poorer people a better standard of life. Was originally for Hilary but all for Bernie now.

 

Especially when the alternative is that lunatic Trump.

 

 

 

 

P.S Weidman is a can

Bit of an overstatement but I agree with a pre-vote required test. What exactly about TS reposting somebody else's drawing leads you to believe everybody in the country is ignorant?

The use of the word communist. Even someone simply describing Sanders as a pure socialist, should bar them from voting. <--- semi-sarcasm. Notice, I did not say everybody...

We already have something like this, it's called the electoral college.

That's exactly something a socialist commie would say

If folks are so appalled by the idea of "free" public university, why aren't they protesting "free" public grade school and high school? Bernie is simply proposing to extend public education beyond high school -- to college. Like many other countries do.

 

You know what? I'll tell you what-- I gain nothing from any of this -- I'm already doing fine career-wise. I'm voting for Bernie and if he doesn't win, I'll crack a beer and have some surf and turf and finish with a j like always.

That is not what the electoral college is.

 

It is similar to what you said. The people can't be trusted to vote correctly, so the electoral college was created to assure idiot voters didn't matter. This is how I perceive it anyways.
