    Bernie Sanders

    Sad insomniac that I am i found myslef watching Bernie Sanders victory speech. It's anovelty hearing an american politician talking about stopping the right wing parties ruining the country (actuaklly it's a novelty here now). Does he have any chanc do you think or will he founder on the knuckle draggers of the bible belt.

    It must be a breath of fresh air listening to Bernie Sanders speak. He's a good speaker. Everything Trump is not. Trump makes a lot of noise and says a lot of words, without actually saying anything. Not of any value anyway.

    It would sad, in my opinion, if Sanders was thought of as a "wasted vote". It sounds like he's got much to offer, to particularly, those that need it most. Honest politics if that's not an oxymoron

    We have NOT evolved that far yet...........if Bernie, whose opinions I share, becomes the democratic nominee, he will be crucified as a communist. That's how stupid we are. Yesterday, I had a conversation with a woman who blames the defunct for decades Black Panthers for the ills of society. I felt like a moron after I politely set her straight. Facts don't change people's minds. My dilemma is how I keep my sanity surrounded by idiots and still have pleasant relations with the population.

    I don't know much about American Politics, but I know that Bernie Sanders has Jeremy Corbyn's support. That's good enough for me.

    That has been the challenge for decades, I believe.

    Re: Bernie Sanders

    I am liking Bernie, more and more.
    I don't care if the morons who have been wheezing on about our current president being Muslim, and Kenyan, and all that start in on Bernie being a Commie. If he gets into the WH, and he can handle it, I am sure that I can deal with it.

    Meanwhile, I've finally given up on the Republican Party. To toy with the Titanic analogy, While they have been busy arguing over how to arrange the deck chairs, I am joining the women and children in a lifeboat.

    It doesn't help Bernie here that (gasp!) Europeans are supporting him.

    PS--doesn't help him to be a Jew, either, since in many minds Jew is synonymous with 'COMMIE'. Oh, & we're also Capitalist Pigs for owning everything & controlling Hollywood (the media). Bernie is not religious, so the Evangelicals won't give him a pass.

    Voting for Bernie in the General is like voting for McGovern or Dukakis. I have real uneasy feelings.

    74 is old & his wife (though I find her lovely) is no Melania Trump, more like Mamie Eisenhower. That goes in the "Americans are Shallow & want to be Kardashian" category.
