Senator Sanders is an Outsider, thankfully!

This discussion thread was locked as off-topic by Sissyk (a host of the General Discussion forum).

I don't see this as off-topic. It's commentary on politics in general, not this election.

You could point out that it benefits Senator Sanders, but that's not a Campaign promotion.

So let's see whether the 2 recommendations from the locked version will find their way with that link. Thanks.

1. Sanders is an outsider to Americans: he not a Dem: or a GOP

10. Wow, a red bait comment on DU, who'd have thought?

 

Am I mistaken, were you perhaps being facetious?

Otherwise, thank you ever so much for "enlightening" us.

4. You made a separate thread just to link to your own thread?

9. And the introduction doesn't explain that?

 

Please try to be more creative about tactics used when dismissing supportive comments about Bernie S.

The one you've just posted entirely too transparent, although presented as something else.

6. Why the Eff did you waste so much space to get to the point?

FFS, this is the immediate reward society we live in. As Democrats we have two choices ideology or pragmatism in the primary. Vote your heart in the primary and vote your best interest in thew general.
Enough said!

7. As per the colloquial definition of 'Washington outsider', I think your premise is inaccurate...

"A Washington Outsider is a candidate who has not served in Congress or has connections to special interest groups or lobbyists who seek to influence public policy in Washington."

8. This is pasted directly from that link, think it addresses that comment, no?

 


Bernie? He's an Outsider who's not either Stupid or a Bigot. ( See Donald Trump )

AND he seems to realize that it's to his advantage while running for office to REMAIN an outsider, hence he's not taking money from the usual corruptive influences. Instead, he's getting media attention (and money) thru Grass Roots support, limited money from private donors.

He's also using Social Media feeds to gain support, as President Obama did while running for office (Go ActBlue!).

NO Corporate or Wall Street money like Hillary, NO Super PAC money like the Tea Publican GOP primary insiders.

Because of that, there's another VERY large difference between "The Donald" and Senator Sanders, one that should serve all of us once he's in office. This difference applies to Hillary Clinton, also.

Senator Sanders has ALWAYS been an outsider, and is actually running on that premise. In fact, he's been elected on that platform for his entire political career, and Big Money sources haven't ever purchase an election for him. Hence, he's not a Sock Puppet for any of those Special Interests.

In his case it's actually Integrity that defines him as an outsider, not politics as usual to support an election campaign.

12. Locking.

Everything related to Bernie Sanders, Hillary Clinton, Martin OMalley is a part of the Primary Discussion.

Please consider re-posting in General Discussion: Primaries.

General Discussion is for repub candidates only!

Thank you!
