    Guess in Indiana they would prefer a socialist to a crook.

    Hope Hitlery chokes on it.

    Sanders is the closest thing to an alternative offered by the two party dictatorship. That may not be saying much, but he does at least stand for something and has, consistently, for a long time. That is an admirable trait in a field where 'politicians' are so commonly contemptible. Especially, he had the correct vision and the courage to vote against the illegal invasion of Iraq.
    Many of us will, nonetheless, vote for other than one of the parties that have essentially effected a coup d'état, taking over the government and working against the interests of the people.

    Bernie would actually be better than Donald Dump.

    Bernie surely is, but Cankles is not.

    She will do the bidding of the elites/1% and has no strong convictions on anything other than her political viability, garnering power and wealth...you know? A typical corrupt lying politician, but worse than most.

    It is ironic that the D party that claims to be for the little guy, will likely nominate someone who couldn't careless about the little guy. Add in her warmongering Neocon past, and you have a disaster in the making.

    The Democrats need to dump super delegates and let the people decide who is best to lead their socialist party.

    The nation should give up the electoral college and let the people decide, as with every other elected post, who should be President.

    I heard that Bernie Sanders got kicked out of a commune because he sat around talking, but refused to do any work.

    I heard that Bernie Sanders could never hold down a job or support himself in the private sector, so he had to go into politics.

    I heard Bernie Sanders is a socialist, and therefore thinks lazy people like him should be paid by the government for not working.
