    Only economically stable folks can afford to help the poor. So the wealth isn't a problem. I do agree he gets a pass from the "class warfare" crowd BECAUSE he is a Socialist. No other wealthy people not properly politically would get that.

    But Bernie has a very consistent political compass. I and other Libertarians love about 50% of what he fights for. But the other 50% is class, race, sex division and just bad math and economics.

    That's why I say he ran on PRINCIPLE and NOT just for the power.

    You know what I do to help people get out of poverty? I don't give them a dollar and tell them to vote for me, but educate them on how they can work themselves into being business owners and self sufficiency. But Bernie who has 3 very expensive houses tells the rest of US that we must do without, then he goes out of his way, so he can have HIS...That is what Socialist do all the time..

    This is the season to go find out how they act. I have not been involved for a good many years but it is convention seasom. I guess I could get a suite and tie on and go to a few that I used to go to and see how they act. I have been to a few county engineer golf outings this summer. I know they are going cra cra about the highway fun d drying up in a couple of years. That is all they talk about. I have not attended much else to see how the rest are acting, but I will go to some and see how they are acting toward each other. the people in power are fairly easy to access if youi are willing to get out your check book or willing to volunteer. I sugest you all go out and find out for your selves.

    The majority of them think they are all on the same basic team, patricians, vs, the rest of us, the plebians.

    It's about power and getting their way, nothing more or less.
