The Democrats have a deep bench this cycle: A likely felon and a ne'er-do-well bum

    I'll gladly take any of the GOP candidates over the losers being offered by the Democrats. Today, let's look at Bern under the microscope:

    Bernie Sanders, The Bum Who Wants Your Money

    An angry radical and agitator who never accomplished much of anything. UPI/Newscom

    2016: Democratic presidential hopeful Bernie Sanders said Monday his parents would never have thought their son would end up in the Senate and running for president. No kidding. He was a ne’er-do-well into his late 30s.
    ...
    It wasn’t as bad as he says. His family managed to send him to the University of Chicago. Despite a prestigious degree, however, Sanders failed to earn a living, even as an adult. It took him 40 years to collect his first steady paycheck — and it was a government check.

    “I never had any money my entire life,” Sanders told Vermont public TV in 1985, after settling into his first real job as mayor of Burlington.

    Sanders spent most of his life as an angry radical and agitator who never accomplished much of anything. And yet now he thinks he deserves the power to run your life and your finances — “We will raise taxes;” he confirmed Monday, “yes, we will.”
    ...
    Sanders took his first bride to live in a maple sugar shack with a dirt floor, and she soon left him. Penniless, he went on unemployment. Then he had a child out of wedlock. Desperate, he tried carpentry but could barely sink a nail. “He was a shi**y carpenter,” a friend told Politico Magazine. “His carpentry was not going to support him, and didn’t.”

    Then he tried his hand freelancing for leftist rags, writing about “masturbation and rape” and other crudities for $50 a story. He drove around in a rusted-out, Bondo-covered VW bug with no working windshield wipers. Friends said he was “always poor” and his “electricity was turned off a lot.” They described him as a slob who kept a messy apartment — and this is what his friends had to say about him.
    ...
    So he tried politics, starting his own socialist party. Four times he ran for Vermont public office, and four times he lost — badly. He never attracted more than single-digit support — even in the People’s Republic of Vermont. In his 1971 bid for U.S. Senate, the local press said the 30-year-old “Sanders describes himself as a carpenter who has worked with ‘disturbed children.’ ” In other words, a real winner.

    He finally wormed his way into the Senate in 2006, where he still ranks as one of the poorest members of Congress. Save for a municipal pension, Sanders lists no assets in his name. All the assets provided in his financial disclosure form are his second wife’s. He does, however, have as much as $65,000 in credit-card debt.
    ...
    The choice in this election is shaping up to be a very clear one. It will likely boil down to a battle between those who create and produce wealth, and those who take it and redistribute it.
    The American voters, having been badly burned by Obama, know who the takers are in this election cycle, and who the makers are.

    well you have shown how low your standards are. I would need a micrometer to measure them.

    That's nothing. You measure everything with a micrometer. Or so I've heard.

    The American voters also know that the makers look out for one thing: the other makers.

    My faves won't get the nod, but I'd be satisfied with Cruz. If he doesn't win, Trump would be acceptable. Not interested in Rubio because of his wobbly immigration stand, but I'll vote for him.

    Who's you pick if you could vote here?

    They also know the takers look to make more takers.

    Out of every candidate running Bernie is the best one. The republican field is a side show of horrors. And Hillary is just seedy.

    Yup, this race is full of takers. Mainly Hillary and every R candidate. They want to take everything from the American people and sell them out to multinational corporations.

    Rape and pillage the American middle class for profit... then distract the sheep from this by blaming it on darker skinned poor people. That's the Republican way!

    Somehow I find it hard to believe you are capable of doing anything "gladly."

    It's funny to see how scared the Rs are becoming of Bernie now that he's been surging in the polls and generating a huge support base.

    The best part though is that they can't even attack his positions factually (because the majority of Americans agree with most of them). They have to resort to pathetic ad hominem attacks against the man's character and straight up lies.

    All is fair in love and war and politics. Lol. Trump is getting absolutely hammered, especially on this forum and he is the front runner. Have to wonder if the non-Trumpers are really the people who don't get it...or deserve it.

    Maybe that's more the result of an uneducated and ignorant electorate (as I've said before)? We are a country that is very good at glorifying stupidity and ridiculousness. I mean, people actually watch the Kardashians, and have for years. Does their popularity mean that we should take them more seriously?

    Or maybe the other options in his party are just that much worse...

    No doubt, he is making the rules. Exactly what this country now needs.

    Trump has done everything in his power to lose votes and become the villain. But everything he does just rallies his supporters more. The guy can't even bow out of the race gracefully. It won't end well for Trump. When he officially says screw you ****ers I don't want to do this anymore and his people turn on him.

    More people have heard his name than yours. So if he's an agitator that accomplished nothing, what does that make you? Especially as one needn't do anything except sell an image to make it famous, so why would you - if nothing else, and based on your own source material - do nothing more than hate successful people because we thought only liberals are hateful and jealous of successful people when they did nothing differently, so only now for one person it becomes an issue to you?

    Which rules and for whom, just to make sure we're all on the same page since even you would agree an informed populace is a good thing?

    Yet, you said you'd vote for Trump. What on earth does THAT say? You know, hypothetically., since this is all a ruse.
