Keep up the good work! Any other candidate who did that would make sure it was front page news - helping the taxpayers keep more money in their pockets. I'm sure Trump would be trumpeting himself to the skies, except that it would never cross whatever it is that passes for Trump's mind to do such a thing.

23. That is not surprising, which is precisely why Bernie is surprising the beltway insiders.

They live in the bubble and talk to each other in the echo chamber.
They have become utterly tone deaf and unable to relate to the rest of us.

I can't say I'm surprised...if you are Bill or Hillary Clinton and your speaking fees yield an hourly income around $30,000 it has to be hard to maintain perspective and understand what real humanity looks like and does. To burden small Iowa communities with bills due to the campaigning and NOT kick in to pay for it is more than amoral...it begs the question, what exactly DO campaign contributions to them go for?

71. Nice insight -- Bernie does not feel entitled to special treatment

This simple fact speaks to so much of what makes him special. Yet, he probably does not consider himself special.

Meanwhile, the entitled ones, the Hillaries, the Trumps, are a dime a dozen -- and are certain they're special.

I hope there's enough love, hope, energy, creativity, persistence, courage, honesty, generosity, versatility, cleverness, guts, strength, good fortune, and vision to take us all the way to a Sanders presidency.

55. My pet peeve as well, which meant I had to send an e-mail:

Regarding your article about Candidate visit costs

Dear Mr. Donahey,

I'm currently a speech-language pathologist, but my first degree/career was in journalism. Your above-mentioned article has two errors that I saw: First, you refer to Hillary Clinton as "Secreatary of State," most likely a typo, and second, you refer to Senator Sanders as seeking the nomination of the "Democrat" party. As you used it properly in a previous paragraph, you know it is the "Democratic" party. A person or candidate can be a Democrat, the party is the Democratic party.

I'm not sure if you have an editor, but if so, he or she should also be informed of the correct usage.


Sincerely,

I am sure that, as far as the expenses incurred by these various departments, she will be 'looking into it...' and no doubt has plans to 'get back to them later...'

probably with an 'offer' to pay her expenses as long as all the other candidates have paid theirs....

79. Socialism. Spreading the misery equally...

... unlike, you know, capitalism, which spreads the misery unequally.

83. Example of Privatists vs Socialists


http://www.democraticunderground.com/1280112858

This is an example of the difference between capitalism's privatists and capitalism's socialists. Bernie Sanders is the only candidate who saw the need to reimburse the city, because he is a democratic socialist and that is what democratic socialists do. Privatism's capitalists destroy the USA money supply and the USA economy; and socialism and socialists replenish the USA money supply and the USA economy in the same way as Bernie Sanders did in Marshalltown, Iowa. A good example and a good contrast of privatist vs socialist behavior.
