He may not win but it's a sign that Americans are getting comfortable with socialism



“Tonight we have made a little bit of history,” the white-haired socialist Bernie Sanders said at a podium positioned between Wisconsin and United States flags at the outset of his hourlong speech before a boisterous crowd. “Tonight, we have more people at any meeting for a candidate of president of the United States than any other candidate.”

Sanders, a 73-year-old self-described democratic socialist, is trying to appeal to the most liberal Democrats with his message of raising the minimum wage to $15 an hour, bridging the gap between rich and poor, criminal justice reform and raising taxes on the wealthy and Wall Street.

“When you deny the right of workers to come together in collective bargaining, that’s extremism,” Sanders said to rousing cheers. “When you tell a woman that she cannot control her own body, that’s extremism.”

Sanders has built his underdog campaign to succeed President Barack Obama on blunt talk about the economy. In addition to advocating a $15-an-hour minimum wage and raising taxes on the rich, he also supports a massive government-led jobs program to fix roads and bridges, a single-payer health care system, an expansion of Social Security benefits and debt-free college.

10,000? There are millions of Communists in Madison, WI. That's a pretty small turnout.

It's like only getting 10% of the kids at fat camp to show up at the ice cream truck. Must be some really shitty ice cream.

No shit liberals filled up a stadium in Madison . Every time a stadium is used there it gets filled up with liberals. Those people are fucking delusional.

So, if this libtard gets elected, he will be 75 before entering office. Will we be able to save tax dollars on senior citizen discounts for everything he does?

He would be big time trouble as president, but I still think Hillary would be worse. Sanders did at least vote against the Brady bill and voted for the PLCAA. He is still bad news on guns but I don't think he is a rabid zealot gun grabber, just typical democrat gun grabber.

I'll say it again to be clear, that socialist fuck should not be president.

No, it's a sign that Democrats are getting uncomfortable with Hillary Clinton.

Everyone should be cheering Bernie because it's a way of weakening or even blocking Hillary.

He, as all Lefties, should be Guevara'd. That said, at least he's honest about his communism.

The 2 Progressives in my office are 100% full on 9/11 truther conspiracy kids. They hate Hillary and support Bernie all the way.

"Besides being a puppet for ZION...she isn't nearly Progressive enough" for them.

This is the future of America.

I don't know if this is so as the momentum of the DNC is to the left.
Link Posted: 7/2/2015 9:16:39 AM EDT
I googled him this morning and see many articles that are trying to convince
that he is not really a socialist.

He is getting a movement behind him, I believe they can see that Hillary is toast

What's sad is that Bernie might finish a close second to Hillary, but either one will smoke the R candidate by 5-8 million votes

This.

When these guy talk about taking from the rich, the people think they are talking about the super rich. What they do not realize is people like Bernie and others are talking about them too.

That sounds like another strategy similar to arming the Taliban... If this guy keeps gaining ground like he is now, he wont need our help to dislodge Hillary.

Very important distinction.

Looking at the last election poll numbers it is Madison/ Milwaukee vs the rest of the state.
