    I completely dislike him on a personal level and I detest that cult of personality that has developed around him. When see and hear him, what I see is a con man who is telling his followers everything they want to hear and offering them pie in the sky that he in no way has any intention of delivering on. He reminds me of Trump in many ways. He is obviously not running for the Democratic nomination because he want to serve the people, he is doing it to fed his own ego. The Democratic party doesn't need him, he is divisive and he need to go away. Screw you Bernie bros, I will not ever vote for him.

    Are you sure you not talking about Trump? Because what you just described is how Trump is acting and speaking

    I vote for st francis. I mean how is that worse"omg we are leaderless what to do". Hell we have managed so far dead alive so what!

    I know st francis has catholic issues and those could be a problem. I am sure the secular atheist crowd would really be annoyed. I am sure the republican evangelicals would have a problem with it, they probably would want to run billy graham on the ticket. Now the science crowd einstein? Hell scientists didnt even understand him really. Popular but i think it makes them feel smart to like him they arent. There are a whole bunch of great untapped canidatds. Its not unconstitutional. I am sure st francis cant actually run, not native born so he is out. Damn i was all excited now i dont care since my canidate cant run. Bogus system elitist crap.

    He has every intention of delivering on his boasts. It's just no guarantee that congress would let him.

    Kind of unrelated, but I was randomly searching the internet and realized Bernie and Trump are both getting up there in actual age. Trump's only a few years younger than Bernie.

    All his talk is nothing but a bunch of sailor's promises and lip service. I can tell when a con artist is being patronizing in order to gain people's trust. Bernie is an expert at it.

    I voted for Godzillary because I thought she more able to deliver on Sanders' promises than Sanders. He had no clout. That Clinton ***** had clout from hell, she could have gotten some stuff done.

    I like Bernie because he's very bright and he speaks his mind in an intelligent way, but I don't think he's got a snowball's chance in hell to get the nomination let alone the presidency.

    And another thing him and his whole cult of Bernie bros remind me of that whole Lyndon la Rouche cult that pop up everywhere.

    Donald J. Trump is in a league of his own when it comes to keeping or earnestly seeking to keep most of his campaign promises. Anyways, Bob, your misgivings towards Bernie Sanders are justifiable. We privilege class people as well as hard-working middle class folks would pay dearly if Bernie Sanders were to significantly deliver on his promises of student loan debt forgiveness, tuition-free colleges, paid family leave, slave reparations, reliance on mostly green energy, open borders, Medicare-for-all as well as single payer dental and vision care insurance,.

    Back in 2015, Bernie Sanders had proposed $18 trillion of new government spending over the course of a decade. I suppose the cost of all his proposed new government spending programs by now has probably doubled to $36 trillion over the course of the next decade. ...:eek:

    Price Tag of Bernie Sanders’s Proposals: $18 Trillion

    Of all the Democratic 2020 presidential hopefuls, I like Andrew Yang the best. However, I believe Yang's ideas are a bit ahead of our time. I doubt our nation would be ready for his proposed 1K monthly universal basic income benefit, 10 percent Value Added Tax, and universal health care beginning in 2021 at a time when there is full employment. However, I do believe Andrew Yang's proposed 1K monthly universal basic income benefit, 10 percent Value Added Tax, and universal health care system might become what our nation greatly needs beginning in 2026. when millions of people's jobs have been replaced by automation.
