I'm 65, always supported Bernie. Never watch TV news. I trust Bernie's agenda.

I don't trust Hillary but I like her and the good she's managed to get done but we will not change much with her because she is a multimillionaire far removed from the common man or the middle class. She's been running for president for 10+ years and is a good campaigner. Bernie had to be talked into running and only did because he wanted to make Washington hear what the average man wanted...not what the millionaires wanted. Bernie is running to help Americans get what they want and to end income inequality and end this oligarchy and make America work for everyone again. Affordable health care for everyone. Bernie stands for what most Americans say they want...Hillary just wants to be president.

Not if we change our trade policies. Not aa "tax hit" to pay your fair share.

Before Reagan corporations paid 90%...Kennedy brought it down to 65% but closed loop holes. Profiteers want it all without paying any taxes. Sorry...it's the admission price for being in a democracy. We need to change our trade policies so it is just as expensive to make it or service it overseas and then bring it back here as it would be just to make it here in the first place...only the profits and the jobs stay in America. When we had tariffs and none of these ridiculous trade policies plus the 90% corporate tax rates, corporations put their money back in their businesses rather than let it go to Uncle Sam in taxes. Back when there was no income inequality killing the poor and the middle class The 90% tax rate only kicked in after the first 5 or 10 million in profits. "When does the greed stop" How many more billions does one have to have to quit bitching about paying $148 million in taxes. All corporations need to be regulated and quit manipulating and bribing our democracy.

Expectations can never be satisfied.What did u expect

All that is just is and all that is is God whose Being is made manifest by Being. What did you expect?

She will be surprised.But will she back Bernie

I too live in SW MO (Springfield). A huge Bernie supporter who urged him to run for president when he was reluctant to do so. Could only afford one Bernie yard sign but they are appearing all over my neighborhood. Claire shouldn't be running down a fellow democrat. If she supports Hillary then she needs to do that but not act like a republican and condemn a fellow dem who may be our candidate. Clinton did something similar in '08 when she ran against Obama siding with McCain saying the two of them at least have the experience necessary to be president but Obama doesn't and I though never side with a republican opponent against a dem candidate who might very well turn out to be the nominee. Here is McCaskill doing the same shallow thinking. She also said unemployment benefits and food stamps do not stimulate the economy. Ha. Just the opposite is true. Same with her Bernie comment...just the opposite is true. Bernie energizes the base and the majority making up the democratic party. Feel the Bern

Democratic Socialism ensures both our freedom AND our survival

We decide who our representatives are and we decide how we want our government to protect our freedoms and prevent the destruction of our environment by a greedy few to rich or to large to take on by ourselves individually but we can collectively. we can makes sure our American dream is there for all who want it. We can protect and help those of us who are down and we can encourage others to strive for greater progress.
Freedom AND Survival...to choose our path and to make sure the path remains.

U are not Christian. U are a Jesian.

Jesus is not what these hypocrites follow. They cherry pick the most edited-by-power grabbing idiots of the bronze age Book called the book of rage, condemnation, violence and murder or the Bible till Jesus came along and cursed a fig tree when figs were out of season cause he was hungry and there were no damn figs on it. Sorry didn't mean to cherry pic...or did I. Fuck the Bible...we are a moral nation tolerant of all beliefs so keep you're fucking indoctrinated religions out of my politics. native Americans called you crazy for such divisive beliefs. The bible says nothing about search and seizure. or discrimination etc. We should all rec this cause it says "Christian" or Bible...screw religious references. We are a moral nation, free to care for each other so we can live in harmony but also to make laws "we" decide will ensure our freedom, our survival, and the pursuit of happiness and maintain the general welfare of our democracy.

Candidate against free trade is gonna win?

Trump may be against it but so is Sanders. Trump was born with a silver spoon in his mouth and has no idea of the reality of the poor and working class and looks down on the 'needy', while sneering at anyone who disagrees or questions his authority...just like Romney. The GOP is the party of a-holes and sociopaths in its uncompromising extremism so of course they are gonna support one just like them like a Cruz Trump ticket but the majority of of non republicans see right through their fanaticism and complete lack of class. You just can't call people the names Trump has and expect to be President. So Take a Dump on Trump and Make America Great Again. It won't just be words on his hat

Nonsense. Who ever wins the democratic nomination will be president

Obstruction will continue no matter which dem sits in the WH. I believe dems will retake the senate as so many repub seats are up for re-election. My 1st choice is Sanders or Hillary if she is nominated as she is 10 Xs better than any of these GOP clowns. The repubs will have a hard time electing anyone without cheating because they lack substance or solutions and are without character. They actually want a repeat of GWBush while denying his actions.
Scandinavian countries are socialist but the impressive FDR was a Democratic Socialist and that is the only form of government which both ensures our Freedom and our Survival by voting to come together to prevent profiteers from destroying our environment our economy and our planet. The employer of last resort which is composed of "We the people" who vote to fix our infrastructure rather than give subsidies to Exxon-Mobile etc etc etc. A democratic government bent on protecting it's people and their social welfare as in "For, By, and Of the people" is the very definition of Democratic Socialism. Bernie is the Man of the people just like FDR.

Dem candidates don't fear each other. They want the same things.

They may have a different focus but I guarantee you whoever wins the dem nomination will be the next president. It's not about personalities it's about substance...what WE stand for and most of America stands for it too. The approach may be different but voters won't turn away if it's Bernie rather than Hillary. There is no logic to that statement. jk Remember who the first Democratic Socialist was...FDR who got elected to four terms. Democratic Socialism is the only form of government which both ensures our freedom and our survival. Free to vote how we want our government to work and free to decide how it can prevent a greedy few from destroying the planet, our environment and our economy. Deciding to make sure we all have what we need to survive (food, clean air and water) and decide to share the cost of being free with education, health care, voting rights, keeping jobs here at home and each paying their fair share in taxes.
Freedom from religious domination with separation of church and state. Bernie is the change and stands for what all the polls claim Americans want. He wins easily over all republican match ups...as does Clinton. The debates show...give a repub enough rope...

In disbelief the world says"Look what has happpened to America.Carnival barkers"

The repub party is completely un-American and unfit to lead.. Most like Huckabee are just trying to enrich themselves by running (look at all the speaker engagements he is getting now and all the huge fees he is charging). Rubio and Paul want their own shows and are following the Palin path. Not a single one of them is qualified to be president though Walker (Nixon incarnate) will be the nominee he won't win cause he lies about everything and is so deceitful and dishonest and Trump just threatened the moderator on national TV. "I don't care about being 'politically correct'...I just want to do what ever I feel like doing so shut up and do what I tell you or you'll get it".
That debate was a black eye to our democracy given by ignorant, self serving bullies. When will the people wake up and vote these people out of office...they are destroying our nation.
