and abandon Hillary! I'm sure her polling numbers will start falling like they did when the GOP had their last Benghazi fest.

you get a star.

HRC favors the 1% but I'm guessing you know that and approve. The 1% will take good care of us, right?

And the hell with the 16,000,000 children living in poverty. They take back seat to profits for your idol, Goldman-Sachs.

There are an additional 16,000,000 children living in low income homes. Doesn't that even get your attention? (Rhetorical)

Two sides to this class war and it's obvious which side you are on.

It makes abudently clear the shitstorm of disinformation here about college tuition, Medicare expansion, social security etc.

As a matter of fact, I think they don't even compare. It's clear Bernie actually cares about the poor and middle class, and has a way better perspective as what we should do for a better future.

"very close" ??? Care to explain that??? How is $15 an hour even close to $12?? Free college tuition for state colleges, compared to "grants"??? UNIVERSAL healthcare compared with maintaining the status quo ACA??? Bringing all our troops back as opposed to leaving troops there??

Please explain, I'm listening.

Plus I can trust him to fight for everything here as hard as he can. With Hillary, not only is her platform not nearly as appealing, but I suspect she'll back down from most of these as soon as it becomes politically expedient.

Let the record stand on it's own. I'd only add that Sanders has not wandered away from doing his homework on this issues consistently, and is not a "Johnny come lately" on any of them.

think that Bernie influenced Hillary to move somewhat to the left. She possibly felt
that she had to, in order to remain competitive. I see that Bernie supports re-
instatement of the Glass-Steagall Act, which would prevent the big banks from their
crooked deals which helped to bring about the national economic collapse of 2008,
while Hillary would not support it. Yep, let's keep on robbing the American middle
class.
