Thom Hartmann warns that corporate dems are using media to say

the progressive dems are not what the democratic party really wants despite all the evidence to the contrary. I've been a dem since birth and have always thought the democratic party was the party of the people not wealthy corporate donors which is why Thom Perez, president of the DNC has said only those candidates whose major donations come from multiple small donations should participate in the debates. I see the democratic party moving away from mega corporate donors , the banksters, wall street and fossil fuel donors which began on steroids with Pres. Clinton and back to multiple small donors like what has driven the progressive candidates recently. One thought, you can't claim to want something and then attack those trying to get it for you. The Democratic party remains the party of the people, the working class, the poor and the elderly. Makes me wonder: Is Skinner et al corporate conservadems or progressives?...or cannot be so easily classified lol.

Yes, he has my vote.He represents what a president should be

Even if he doesn't get the nomination he will make the entire venture more progressive for the entire party. A great candidate on any ticket and let us not forget according to all the polls he would have beaten Trump by a far greater margin than any other candidate uniting dems, independents and republicans. He made single payer a national agenda as well as free public college and income equality. He's an honest man of the people so he's good for what we all want with a tremendous energy level. But it's a long way off and I will wait till we have actual candidates to choose between. But yeah, he should run.

More unites us than divides us but Trump pushes what divides us

All the polls on the main issues show by a huge margin that we want single payer; free public college; environmental protections; renewable energy; rebuilding our infrastructure; income equality; free child care; increased SS benefits;Immigration reform etc etc etc. Merry Christmas to all of us. Children are taught not to act like Trump. Someone forgot to teach Trump. This PINO is a thug who stole the election and turned the presidency into a criminal enterprise and is now going about the country recruiting loyalists and brownshirts for his coming attempt to become a dictator. 100 people with guns think they are tough until they come up against a thousand people with guns. Then they are just stupid.

Not Obama like, it's Trump like when all his generals, state dept, advisors & allies

are telling him not to. He just wants money for real estate from the Saudi's by abandoning the Kerds who fought side by side with us against ISIS. Erdowon(sp) in Turkey will ride in and slaughter the Kerds as soon as Trump pulls the troops out. It makes no sense. Thomm Hartmann claims it's in response to get Turkey to shut up about Kassaggi murder and Trump can get the loans from the Saudis, he and Kushner, for their hotel deals. Trump is too stupid to have any sense of the subject so you can be sure it's for a personal profit motive as how he justifies this action.

All polls show the public agreeing on things we want for our society

Like Medicare for all. free public higher ed, ending wealth inequality, rebuilding our infrastructure, making the 1% pay their fair share and the list goes on. More unites us than divides us and radical extremists, and racists will not divide us if we stay firm to what unites us.

That's not what happens. 1st, it depends on thhe gravity of the charges

2nd) Trump is self destructive and impeachment might cause his head to explode before he hung himself. 3rd)It is a duty and responsibility of the House and should never be ignored because of political reasons. 4th) Trump is already tearing this country apart while making it an embarrassment to the world and must be stopped and regulated. Impeachment would tie his hands while showing our citizens how self serving and destructive this PINO actually is. If the charges show criminal overreach...we must impeach. Trump has a history of losing. especially in court and his white supremacist supporters will always be here trying to divide the nation. We outnumber them 5-1 and the more they disrupt and try to divide the number opposing them increases in power and force.
So don't be paranoid. If we have reason to impeach we will not feed hypocrisy. We will stand strong that no one is above the law.

What a farce. A he said she said without a prior investigation is

just a soap opera or republican grand standing on a victim of abuse. Kavanaugh is the only nominee out of 35 who went to the press during confirmation hearings which proves his guilt. Plus it was on a partisan republican network. The voice of the majority of Americans never matter to republicans in power.

Wrong on all counts. He did label himself a 'Social Democrat'

Some programs should be socialized which meant it was available to all by our tax dollar rather than individuals bearing the entire burden like education, healthcare (like Medicare for all) These are all social democratic programs and listed in our party platform. Bernie has no long term goal of a "Nationalized economy", only income equality. Democratic socialism is not antithetic to capitalism and never was. Republicans tried to equate the mention of socialism with communisms but only those uninformed would try to equate democratic socialism as government controlled rather than regulated per the people's vote through elected representatives. We already have democratic socialism which we the people regulate by our democratic freedom to choose.

Not a member in name only as he always caucuses with the dems

I always find very petty comments demeaning Bernie Sanders frivolous. Why bother making them? It's like commenting on someone's hair.
I saw Obama as a man first and primarily of good character with integrity and very inspirational...oh and by the way...he also happened to be black. That's how much him being black influenced me concerning anything about him. I feel sorry for those who get stuck on on a person's features. Bernie is a good man who has done more for the democratic party than most people who call themselves democrats. I hope we don't start hearing "it's a shame we don't have Hillary to beat up on anymore", or slandering her comments etc. It's divisive and petty. These are progressive people who are for the people and side with the democratic party platform. And I welcome them no matter what they call themselves because the opposition belong in the shop of horrors as a cult of fascist tyranny.

No republican has been legititmatly elected President since Esienhower

Nixon committed treason to get elected. Reagan did to. Bush Sr was running a Criminal regime and Bush Jr. was installed by the SC after officially losing the election once all the votes were actually counted. Trump was installed by the electoral college Russian style.

The popular vote, the real will of the people all elected democrats for president but were thwarted.
