    “How Else Could A Socialist Win 22 States?” Moore said.

    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lLsRFcgHkvA

    He claims that no one trusts Democrats anymore – because if they did a “socialist” (Bernie) would not have won 22 states.

    I don't agree with Micheal Moore very often but in the past couple of weeks I think he has stepped into reality ... moore.  He is a very intelligent guy and I give credit when it is due.

      This video surprises me in a lot of ways because in one his latest documentaries, "Capitalism:  A Love Story", he not only went out of his way to condemn capitalism as being the root of all evil, but he also praised socialism as well.  Granted, a man is perfectly fine to change his mind.  After all, I'm sure many of you here changed your stances on positions before.  Like ahorseback for instance once said in forums that he would never vote for Donald Trump, but a mere few months later I see he changed his tune.

      Granted, there's nothing wrong with that, as we're all free to change our minds.  I just find it a bit strange is all for him to say that.  hmm

        Ron Paul gets it right more often when he said Moore is mistaken by Corporatism, Capitalism is not the problem. A good degree of Capitalism is healthy for a nation. Corporatism are takers not givers to our people and the natural environment

        I understand him changing his mind when the only other choice is a murdering crook who should be in prison.....

        I'm surprised when I read my journals from years gone by to see how I have evolved. We are ever changing, and hopefully for the better individually and not the bitter.

      In case anyone missed it in any of my other Q&A or forums, I used to be a Democrat until I found out I had no idea what they stood for and now that I do (and Republicans not all that hot but still their standards are for something decent and godly) I would never vote Democrat and repent daily for the last Democrat I voted for that has turned this country into a chaos of all the bad possible and making sure it will only grow and multiply. God forgive me for that first vote!

      Is it any difference than Trump having trouble with the GOP establishment?

      Bernie is more true to the Progressive ideology.  Where more conservative Democrats cling to corporate and status quo, that lean much more toward the ideology of Republicans than we would like.

      The defection of so many toward Sanders is hardly an endorsement of conservatives in general, nor Republicans in particular.

        How can Democrats look over and forgive Hillary of all she has done and know in their hearts all Obama has done wrong she is promising to their faces to make worse!

          That is quite easy when you compare that with the agenda of GOP and conservatives.

        This is helpful, known as the Nolan Chart.
        Above the line = Progressive
        Below the line = Regressive

        Anyone above the center-line is ok in my book.  Freedom!
        Below the line is status quo, leading to dependency.  Slavery!

        No thank you, our Brexit is on the horizon.

    And the other half of democrats is so blind as to excuse the Clintons of their crimes against humanity .This is also the only time I agree with M.M.

      I really do feel sorry for people who are so brainwashed and confused that they wouldn't support Donald Trump. I mean Hillary Clinton loves killing Christians world wide, she loves putting al Qaeda and SIS in control, there is so much more I could say.  She is evil!

    Think about it. Bernie used the democratic party like Trump used the republican party. Had the DNC been as honest as the RNC and allowed the democratic process to proceed unhindered by back room shenanigans what might have happened?

    What you have is a country full of people disgusted with business as usual in Washington. We simply haven't found a way to unify against them yet.

      Yet Trump is the outsider ,  working outside of  even a semi -a friendly media !  The only candidate who has O experience and won the primaries .   Now will HE beat the Clinton Mafiosa !

        I heard someone talking one day that said Trump is a nationalist so he is the real insider.  That, Hillary and Obama are Globalists, so they are outsiders.  That made sense to me. 

        Is everything backwards and inverted with the politically correct mentally diseased?  wink

      You nailed the problem we have today. It use to be the Red, White and Blue that united us.  Unity is the best foundation we could have.  Now we are polarized under the divider-in-chief.

    As I Listen to Moore speak  about Trump , Sanders , Hilary ,   I hear him say ,    Vote for Hilary right ?
    and  as he  explains why   democrats voted for Sanders in the primary , why his state voted Sanders  Isn't it because they are sick of business as usual ,   And yet ,   Hilary isn't business as usual ????
    Please .   Michael Moore  comes through perfectly on what people ARE sick of ----but then drops the ball big time when he supports Hilary.

    That is what baffles me about those supporting her - Isn't that the same as voting for one of the Bushs'
    or any other "insider ' politician such as her ?

    Why do we all recognize the need to break the cycle of the rigged system and yet fail to see the fire escape  door ?

      PrettyPantherposted 2 months ago in reply to this

      We need to break the cycle.  Yes.  But not with a guy who IS the cycle and has never committed an unselfish act in his life.  What makes you think he would do so as president?  It will be business as usual, except with an incompetent toddler at the helm.

            Yet you don't see Hilary as defending a monster who rapes , drugs ,  molests , and probably has children outside their marriage , AND more so her defense of it ?

              I am not defending Bill, except to say that anything you are saying about him can also be said about Donald.  Hillary is running for president, not Bill.  Donald is running for president.

              By your logic, I'm supposed to be harder on the defender of the perpetrator than the perpetrator.  Why?

                And I'm sure you can show us all this womanizing evidence about Trump .  And how it  surpass the allegations of rape , sodomy , illegitimate  children ,   conspiracy to commit rape ,  Lying under oath before congress  ,  IMPEACHMENT  and disbarment from ever practicing law again ,    Allegations of murder ,of allegations  conspiracy to commit murder ,   Fraudulent fundraising  etc .

                Right !

                    And your voting for more of the same thing ! That sends a perfect message  to Bill and Hilary ,  "WHEN YOU GET BACK IN THE  CLOAK ROOM AGAIN ,  KEEP UP THE FINE WORK , hey Bill how about another BJ?!

      Moore did not like GW Bush and rightfully so. He liked Obama, then now he says the greatest thing Obama has contributed is being the 1st person of color to be President and gay marriage.

      People do change their mind, for most part Moore is honest. Who ever they select/elect it will be sure that they will be worst than the last President.
