I noticed that Mr Sanders is listed as an Independent Senator.

I assume that he would have beaten the Democratic guy to win his seat.

How can he stand as a Democrat in this election ?

Democrats have no standards whatsoever, they've had a KKK Grand Kleagle as the "Conscious of the Senate"

Sanders is a professional bum....

Bernie Sanders, The Bum Who Wants Your Money

16: 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’s certainly something that I don’t think they ever believed would’ve happened,” the unabashed socialist remarked during CNN’s Democratic town hall forum, as polls show him taking the lead in Iowa and New Hampshire.

He explained his family couldn’t imagine his “success,” because “my brother and I and Mom and Dad grew up in a three-and-a-half-room rent-controlled apartment in Brooklyn, and we never had a whole lot of money.”

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.

That Bernie is neck and neck with the Killier of Benghazi tells you a whole lot about the Killer.

Sanders' seat in the Senate was held by Jim Jeffords, a republican turned independent.

Sander's candidacy for Jeffords' seat was endorsed by Senate democrats.

That Sanders is not a democrat is one of many reasons he won't be the nominee.

While an Independent Senator he caucused with the democrats.
To run for nomination on the democratic ticket all that was needed was for him to change his party affiliation.

This sort of stupidity, ignorance, and lack of political acumen common to most on the right is truly amusing and unsurprising.

You're so annoying, trying to type eloquent and then running away when confronted reveals much about you.

Pretty much nails it.....

If socialism isn’t workable when it’s sold to us in a shiny, articulate package, what makes you think socialism will be any more workable when sold by a loud, irritable, constipated septuagenarian?

If a polished turd couldn’t make socialism work, do you people really think a crusty old turd like Bernie Sanders will do any better?

Feeling the Bern? There’s an ointment for that. It’s called Reality.

Snap out of it!

And am I correct in thinking that Mr Trump is not a Republican ? Did I read that he would stand as an independent if he wasnt nominated ? That doesnt sound like a party man.

Sanders at least always was an Independent, and Trump has changed with the wind. Trump was all for universal healthcare in 2001 and universal healthcare is not socialism, and also having progressive taxation is not socialism either, before Reagan the top bracket was 70%. Its time the filthy rich start to pay, and most of them have no problem with it.

Vermont recently ditched Sander's idea of healthcare, it would have bankrupted the state.

Because he's using the party for what parties function as --- a machine to organize.

Yes, Bernie has defeated a string of both Republicans and Democrats in elections for Senate, Congress and Mayor of Burlington. At least one time the Rs and Ds ran a joint candidate endorsed by both parties, against him. And he still won. :thup:

We have universal healthcare, you just don't know it. Most counties have Medicaid for low income, and if one goes to the Hosp, without ins, they take care of that person.

The ACA which I think is better than putting everyone on Medicare, at least the lower income people do pay something for their health ins.

The issue is there are 18 or so states that have not expanded Medicaid, and they are all Rep Governors. So now we have people falling through the cracks, except they can still get on the ACA if they file a form. Or they an just go to the hosp ER.

The wealthy don't like it, because it forces them to have health ins. Most of the filthy rich travel abroad for healthcare or are use to picking and choosing what healthcare they want. They have no issues with pre existing conditions due to they can pay the ins. costs. How in the hell did Cheney get a heart at the age of 70. Tell me.
