Bernie is not racist and neither are his followers

I don't support bernie for a number of reasons but one thing I am sure of he and his followers are not racist.

new deal and Reaganism

All movements die. I constantly hear this pining for FDR. The FDR coalition had run its course. It was dying in 1976 and the only reason why Carter won was because of Watergate. By 1980 it was DOA. We got slaughtered in 80,84 and 88.

Reaganism is dying and may be DOA right now. The republicans are trying one last time but I think Trump is drowning it in a bathtub.

Is is possible that democratic socialism is the next movement. It may be but Bernie will not lead it. Someone young has too. Someone who can speak to youth and is not 75 years old. Bernie may be the start but someone new and youthful must emerge to take it over.

Free College- really

This is a joke and doesn't even really deal with our economic issues. Public Universities are a state issue. each state has different tuition's and different fees. It also has no bearing on the economic issue
same with the $15.00 minimum wage

The real issue is we don't make anything. Our manufacturing jobs are gone. If you really wanted to impact our economy then you would lay out an incentive plan to bring jobs back. Germany out produces us with finished goods with 81 million people an they are not paying skinflint wages.
How come i hear nothing from bernie about this. He sells anger.

Lifetime appt. is antiquated

Rehnquist and Scalia both died in office. It is time to change yhis antiquated term. Perhaps 20 years. 75 is just too old.

To everyone who thinks I am an anti semite

I issue you a $1,000 wager. I will provide my most recent email(1/24/2016)was from my 13 jewish friends I grew up with. These email have been going on for many years. My friend just became a grandfather and everyone was wishing the baby mazel tov.

We will confirm all emails and correspondence with an arbitrator.

I have been friends with these guys since 1963. This is basically a guys group. there are an additional 4 or 5 women on facebook am connected with.

Also, my grandmother who was german was arrested in 1910 for cavorting with Chinese men. I have the newspaper article. Any takers on that for another $500.

Any takers if not please don't call me an anti semite again.

My wife's response to Bernie

My wife was a bit more active but not so much anymore. She is quite aware of Bernie and likes him. When I told her he was 74 years old her reply was " are you kidding me'?. She then so eloquently put it "He has no chance in the general"and he is just too old. I personally think Hilary is pushing it. We have an ageism problem in this country and it is not going away.

Watched Bernie on the news

That is one crabby guy. His demeanor was let's say "crabby". The electorate in general does not like a crabby guy. One of the most important part of sales is presentation. Whether anyone on this site wants to admit it people want to vote for someone they like. Reagan, Clinton and Obama all had sunny dispositions.That is how you win over people. Bernie talks to the true believers.
