    Bernie gives a pretty lucid description of his policies and his platform here. Defines the corporate welfare and oligarchy he's running against and explains his vision of 21st century US democratic socialism. I've enabled location based shadow bans to keep spoiled Canadians from posting in this thread.

    Call me what you will but no way in hell is the country going to elect someone for 4 years with that damn NY Jewish accent. I can't take 30 seconds of it.

    I'm bringing up the accent thing. Trumpito has one of the most grating NY accents I've ever heard in real life, and I'm from New York!

    Can't watch right now but it better be specific, as his peers are arguing against "money in politics" etc without naming names. WIll watch tonight regardless as I need to learn how to make sure he doesn't win the nomination. ;)

    You don’t like him because he’s got the eye of the Jew.

    I think it's a preference thing. Trump's accent is the Queens/Long Island accent that you usually hear among nouveau riche women named Edna or Susan who are someone's mother in laws that go to Fisher's Island to get away from "those people" so she can rest. Bernie sounds like a guy who worked slicing meat in a Brooklyn butcher shop his whole life and takes the bus instead of the subway because he doesn't want to hear it when he gets home.

    I was pretty good until he lost it around 22:00 when he lumps "deportations" into the "path of hatred".

    Enforcing sovereign borders is not a path of hatred and even Julian Castro, who has the dead on arrival most liberal immigration policy of the current candidates so far, supports deportations.

    Beyond that, I find that Bernie is easily undercut in politics by continuing to demonize the 'haves' by either intent or just his usual tone. Bang the drum that inequality builds an unstable economy, not that those 1% are some evil doers. Most of America does not hate the rich and trying to get them to do so isn't a win. Same with "the right to a good job". That's just not something that is being painted in a way that enough of the voting block will support policies to implement it. Most people don't feel you have a RIGHT to a good job.

    Bernie's need to brand this and win the "democratic socialism" argument might win a long term battle in culture wars, but might also lose him the presidency. I think it's a bad move if he wants to be President, where such a bully pulpit would be a much louder megaphone to sell the brand.


    38:00 on about freedom is his strongest argument in this whole video that no one will ever watch, and he hides it at the end after putting everyone to sleep for half an hour.

    There's something about his inflection that just make me glaze over even when trying to listen. Just droning on and on and on like my 8am college professor.
