He seems like a good guy but why wasn't he popular enough to beat a Shillary Clinton?
He was popular enough, the backlash vote that got Trump in would have been more than enough to get Bernie in but he got torpedoed by the Dems for that very reason. People didn't vote for Trump they voted against the establishment.
What was the reason Democrats didn't want Bernie?
I forget the other things at the moment but he was imo right on a few other things that I felt were pretty important.
He wears a Dem badge out of necessity but he is at heart a Maverick they can't control, hence they backed Killary which is no misnomer by the way the Clinton's are murderous cunts.
What like basic healthcare and education for all? And the idea of a society where birthright privilege isn't the be all and all of a person's available opportunities. The crazy commie bastard how dare he?
He didn't have enough political recognition at the start of the campaign and by the time people started to find out more about him it was too late. He was also up against the Democratic National Comittee which had made backroom deals with Hillary for her to be the nominee, and as such they pulled out every dirty trick in the book to stack the odds in Hillary's favour. One major way they stacked the deck was to use superdelegates, which are party members that get the same vote as a whole area of the country towards who the nominee is, by having them all listed for Hillary before any actual voting had taken place despite them not actually declaring who they will vote for until after all voting is done. Using their media contacts and lackeys this helped them create the illusion that Hillary had massive backing and was inevitably going to win.
As the campaign went on more and more people found out about him his popularity increased and increased, but it was too late to change the result because of the superdelegates and the lead they helped to create. Now he is the most popular politician in the U.S. but because he represents a danger to the centrists that run the Democratic Party and their consultant class they will do everything they can to stop him winning the nomination.
I like you for a reason zephyr.
He uses 11 secret herbs and spices
@Banchan - would you like a free pony? If so, you'd love Bernie Sanders.
How masculine is it to get in bed with the Saudis and let the Sheik poop on your face? That's the kind if presidenting you got going for you now.
Don't get me wrong, he's still better than Hillary who would also do the same but Bernie seems to be the only one with balls to say no to the Saudis.
5/10 you would have been better off not giving up your lying dog faced pony soldier so fast.
Bernie Sanders would have been president if it wasn't for those meddling Democrats.
Bernie's platform is popular in most parts of the US. He wanted to expand access to healthcare, education, employment, infrastructure, and other basic needs. Fiscal hawks in the Democratic party marginalized his campaign, but the advantage is it caused a lot of change within the party. The superdelegate system is gone. There's new party and precinct leadership in some influential posts, and candidates with more interest in listening directly to the citizenry's needs are running in elections nationwide.
I'm not sure if Bernie runs again, but I think it's possible Tulsi Gabbard does and if so, she'll likely be representing some aspects of his platform.
im surprised hillary didnt have him killed
Yes, that horrid bitch would have had him tortured, murdered, and made Bill leave wearing Bernie's clothes to cover it up.
Just wait until you find out what he's doing to Trudeau.
he was a running back for the detroit lions.
I was posting at wr for many years before being here. The topic of regular western women prostituting there and getting pooped on entered many middle east topics over there. How true this is I dont know but also how they like young boys over there also entered the topics many many times.
You ask to know everything about Bernie and then you argue he is only one with balls. If you know enough to argue for him you didn't need this thread. Nice try and it could have been a slow build up to someone melting down had you not revealed your lying dog faced pony soldier.
