    Are you feeling the Bern?

    Are you feeling the Bern?  I certainly am feeling the Bern. The Bern of another Republican president destroying the economy again.The economy that took the democrats eight years to rebuild after the republicans drove into the greatest recession in history and if not for the election of a Democratic president another Great Depression.Just as I felt Donald Trump was a Clinton mole to ensure a Democratic win in 2016, the democrats return the favor with a Bernie Sanders candidacy presenting a candidate that has absolutely no chance of winning a presidential election.

    Communism has been proven by history not to work. Take the incentive away from the entrepeneur and your economy fails. Vietnam, North Korea and even now China is turning to a free based economy and USSR failed miserably. The Bern is not a socialist he is outright a take from the rich and give to the government dude -- communist. He will never be elected.
    He is a nice fellow. He is a good man. But he stands for something that in unamerican. Good for him, we need to clean up Washington and Wall Street. I like him. But I hate communism.
    My wife is an immigrant from a communist state that is clearly wanting to change into a global economy of note, and they dang sure will. But first they had to realize that communism is a failure. I speak of Vietnam. The people are fierce free enterprise and the government is playing catch up. It ain't going the other way like the bern would like.
    Hot damned we are not rich, but we are free. I like it and my four children like it. I want my neighbor to do great, but I do not want to pay for it.
    Long live Bernie and long live free enterprise. They are both awesome.

    Not so fast, Mr. Sanders has at least a good of a chance as any of the GOP frontrunners. Who would have thought that anybody like Donald Trump would be considered a viable candidate, but here we are.

    Sanders has a background that says he is more capitalist than people believe. I want the excesses of unregulated capitalism reined in and Bernie is the only candidate with the track record and intent on doing just that.

    As we have seen, the reality of politics changes very quickly. Bernie is now a viable candidates when a month or two ago, he was on the fringe.

      that is my point,he is viable to win the nomination. There is zero chance he can win a general election, even if his republican rival is the ineffable Donald.

      I can't see why Sanders would have less of a chance winning the general election over a man like Donald Trump? I think that Sanders speaks to a lot of voter frustration today

      Credence2 - I agree with you. The NH primary where Sanders drew many more voters than Trump or Clinton shows that everyone was underestimating this candidate. He's the peoples' champion.

    I thought I was feeling The Bern, but it turned out to be just The Burp. I guess I gotta lay off the Pabst Blue Ribbon.
