As we all know, Bernie is an Independent.  He knows how to work with both parties and in my opinion, is noble in admitting his past mistakes, he has learned from them and is actually working for the individuals of the country....not a party.  He has to run on that ticket even though they used some very dirty tactics to try to eliminate him.  Stats shown back then that he probably would have won against the current.  People seem so scared of the term "democratic socialist", but what do you call this current administration, the normal?  Why are people so afraid of him and his platform, but too afraid to remove the current crisis in our democracy?  They have allowed this current crisis inducing management to run the country into total disarray, in my opinion.  So gee, thanks democrats for helping put us into this position by only allowing her to take the platform to compete. Oh and thanks republicans for setting the new norm precedence.

As Gina Raimondo one of the last centrist democrats left said she does not think a "lefty" can win in 2020 and I agree with her.  I personally do not want to see another 4 years of Trump, but the Democrats have to be very careful who they choose or this nightmare could continue on....

Not sure where it comes from, but Republicans seem compelled to take everything literally - perhaps its that prevasive Fundamentalist connection.

 

Whatever it is, it leads them down some very strange paths.

 

Medicare For All is jsut a shorthand for Universal Helath Care with a single payer, but GOPers insist on thinking they can attack it by pointing out opening Medicare to everybody won't work.

 

Same thing with Free College For All - just means Government needs to make all post-high school education and training affordable, like it was back in the 1960's and 70's.

 

Reason Republicans have all been ordered to attack those Slogans is the way we pay for them is to restore fairness to our tax code, and the GOPerLords issuing the orders do not want that to happen.

BERNIE SANDERS FOR PRESIDENT?

Message 95 of 95

Again, we see that Bernie has joined the group of Democrats that are running for President. I still believe that he is too much to the left to really win a national election.

HIs stance of Medicare for all, and free college for all are in many ways fantasies that will not be able to be implemented. 

We need to stop electing celebrities and stop with the emotional voting.
In order to win the next elections, we have to have a very strong individual that is experienced, and that has centrists positions to be able to attract the Mid States,  the Independents, the black and women's vote.

We all want a healthcare system that will insure all citizens, Medicare will never be that system and too many changes will have to happen and I am not too sure that they will be that good.

Free college for all? perhaps he can do that with State Universities, but what about all of those private Universities, Is he going to impose that to private enterprises? 
That will be very dangerous if he actually think that he can do that.  I for one will not support it.

First, not all individuals need a college degree and many will not even want to go to college.

We need to be very careful who is elected to beat Trump. I suggest to throw emotions to the side and start thinking of the policies that will really work. 

Bernie Sanders to me is similar to Trump and his wall. 

Medicare for all and free college for all.

Those are more slogan than things that can be implemented. We have had it with Trump and his idiotic ideas. Bernie was good in 2016  he needs to change a lot of his positions and will he?
