From the "Things he doesn't want you to know" file:

Bernie Sanders voted for and/or otherwise supported:
* Economic sanctions that killed more than a million Iraqi civilians
* Every U.S. bombing of Iraq from 1992 on
* The sending of U.S. military units to Kuwait and Saudi Arabia to threaten Iraq because “we cannot tolerate aggression”
* The objectively racist and mass-incarcerationist Federal Crime bill.
* Every US intervention since elected to Congress–Iraq, Somalia, Haiti, Bosnia, Liberia, Zaire (Congo), Albania, Sudan, Afghanistan and Yugoslavia.
Voted YES on Congressional pay raise. (Jul 2009)
Voted YES on instituting National Service (forced government service) as a new social invention. (Mar 2009)
Voted YES on continuing intelligence gathering without civil oversight. (Apr 2006)
Voted NO on allowing tribal Indians to opt out of federal healthcare. (Feb 2008)
Voted YES on authorizing states to collect Internet sales taxes. (May 2013)
Voted YES on $15.2 billion for foreign operations. (Nov 1999)
Impose sanctions and an import ban on Burma. (Oct 2007)
Voted NO on reducing tax payments on Social Security benefits. (Jul 2000)
Voted NO on eliminating the Estate Tax ("death tax"). (Apr 2001)
Voted NO on eliminating the "marriage penalty". (Jul 2000)
Voted YES on banning Internet gambling by credit card. (Jun 2003)
Voted YES on keeping Cuba travel ban. (Jul 2001)
Voted YES on regulating tobacco as a drug. (Jun 2009)
Voted YES on implementing the 9/11 Commission report. (Mar 2007)
Voted YES on $192 Billion additional "anti-recession" stimulus spending. (Jul 2009)
Voted YES on additional $825 Billion for economic "recovery" package. (Feb 2009)
Voted NO on protecting middle-income taxpayers from a national energy tax. (Apr 2009)
Voted NO on prohibiting eminent domain for use as parks or grazing land. (Dec 2007)
Voted NO on reducing Marriage Tax by $399B over 10 years. (Mar 2001)

Some things are not surprising, like that he voted against any tax reduction, but he doesn't want us to know about the taxes on the middle class that he voted not to reduce.

He's a fraud of course but the Democrats seem to like liars and frauds so, there it is.

Mod Edit: PredFan You need to source your information please.

Lots of issues here that you describe superficially.
Perhaps it would be clearer to focus on a couple issues that substantiate your simplified claim.

Senators have voting records. We have not had a Senator be elected to the Presidency since Kennedy, almost sixty years ago. So if we elect a Senator, I would rate them this way in favorability: Rubio, Sanders, Cruz.

Google and find the information yourself. You can use the internet as well he can and then put your own spin on the results. Win win.

Someone is getting scared a Socialist might win in November. So he is no better than 99.9% of other politicians. Are we supposed to be shocked?

This sort of thing is pure garbage. Bills that come up before Congress usually have a whole pile of riders and whatnot that may or may not have anything to do with the bill. The vote may be to support or defeat one of the unrelated riders, or it may be a quid pro quo for some other Senator's vote on something else.

Bernie is a lot of things, but not many people accuse him of being a hypocrite. His whole candidacy is a joke, so we should try to be entertained by it for as long as we can (maybe two more weeks).

That is reasonable, but things change when we are talking about a GOP Senators record.
