The choice is yours: either have __ trumpeting to make America great again, or else(!)
Thanks, but NO thanks.
I think on a broader scale we're better off with Bernie Sanders.

Populist has a negative connotation for me as this is usually linked to right wing politics in Europe. And it's hardly populist if he talks for the 95%. America in general will be better of with Bernie Sanders in the lead and a Congress that is backing him.

Bernie is going to be hit with every "negative" word they can think of in order to scare voters away - but I hope people are smarter than that because we surely need Bernie...

I am 65, disabled, and I vote. Also, I am a revolutionist; a political revolutionist. I'm with Bernie all the way!

Noted. Thanks, Cal.
It's the Corporate media that allows Bernie to be sidelined. Yes, they will back the 'establishment' candidate. As a female, I was insulted at the comments made by both Gloria Steinem and Madeleine Albright. As if we weren't smart enough to THINK and educate ourselves regarding the FACTS about the candidates.
Media loves to hop on the bandwagon that Bernie is 'weak' on foreign policy---which he definitely is NOT. When he says he voted against the Iraq War, he is alluding to the fact that he is against the Military-Industrial-Corporate complex. It is difficult for him to explain that in so many words because the mainstream media is all for more unending wars---great for business! They continue to fearmonger about ISIS and keep viewers involved with this massive scale of war. Just another industry that is scared to death of the possibility of a Pres. Sanders.
In fact, I was thinking the other day that the Sanders campaign is, in many ways, picking up where RFK's campaign left off in the 60's. We who are for peaceful resolutions, equity and equality, environmental justice, etc. have been The Silent Majority for too many decades. Now is our time to speak up and speak out and vote for Bernie.

At last you have a man who is the voice of the people and not the tool of the the big corporations .He is his own man.He is going to have a hard battle and needs al the support he can get from from supporters.His opponent's are going to fight dirty I've already noticed some negative false criticisms. I imagine sooner or later his opponents will try to raise the old communist bogie stating socialist equals communist and some will be stupid enough to fall for it.He is your best hope for a fairer democratic country,there is no alternative to him Look at the alternatives ,Hilary or one of your Republiczan ratbgs.What a miserabls choice of alternatives

So refreshing to hear to hear those views from a politician.

Walter F, I've seen the 'communist bogie' raised many times already. When I can, I just point to happy, healthy Scandinavian countries as an example of socialism that really works for everyone.
