Me and you have a lot in common! I love the concept of socialism, and I think that a basic safety net of socialism such as medical, unemployment and retirement should be in place. Indeed as you say though, the youth of today, and the lazy wealfare minded older generations exist to ruin this country. Anyways, If there were such a thing as responsible capitalism, then we'd hardly need these safety nets, but capitalism is largely cut throat anymore.

The politicians as you say are all crap except for possibly Bernie Sanders. This guy is at least principled in the sense that he really does want to help out the small guy, and force the wealthiest elites to pay their fair share, but ultimately, I don't believe he can deliver, but only because the wealthy would do everything in their power to sidestep doing what's right. Though I was never fond of Reagan back in the day, I believe that he was a far cry from the polarizing idiots, blood sucking leaches we have in office today. Then there's the democrats.........

Cant have anything to do with Sanders because it is known that he was and probably still is a card carrying member of the communist party. He is pure, unadulterated, crap. Besides that, he has shown himself to me to be a too old "soft turd" of a lying ******* to be president. Can't stand the way he looks, sounds, or carries himself. Besides, I was raised up in the cold war era and old sayings comes to mind like "Kill a commie for mommy" or "Better dead than Red". Sorry that's just the way I feel.

Also, I have been self employed and in various business near my whole life. Now that I'm 60 YO, and have invested well for retirement or latter life income, I am not willing to entertain anyone let alone a possible president to "redistribute" a single penny of my meager wealth. I would consider such a forced policy as elderly abuse. No one gave me a leg up throughout the years, and I don't intend to start helping others who won't or can't help themselves at this stage in my life.

OK should go back to just posting the goofy political posters with silly sayings and leave it that.

See, you got it all wrong. First, Bernie is not communist, he's a socialist. There is a difference! Second, he's not interested in people like you, he's after the Walton family of walmart, people like Donald Trump, the Koch brothers and so on. In other words, people who have made a killing by paying little to no taxes, and non realistic, non living wages, that force people to have to get assistance from the government such as food stamps. These people, I'm sorry (actually I'm not) need to be shamed, and forced to pay their fair share. Under Eisenhauer, a republican, the extreme wealthy paid 90 percent to taxes. I think that's a bit much, but the honeymoon Reagan gave the wealthy, in the form of tax breaks, while we middle and lower class folks carry this country, which has been slipping in to 3rd world status, needs to be shaken up. Bernie speaks to those such as myself, who aren't paid what we're worth, and it's getting harder and harder for us to survive. Unfortunately, Bernie doesn't have a chance because people don't understand the difference between communism and socialism, and what Bernie Sanders really stands for. This is a fellow who really does understand what it's like to scrape by. No disrespecting you, and this isn't directed at you, but this country is so full of ignorance, stupidity greed and selfishness, at all levels. All you have to do is look around and you can't avoid it!

No, your incorrect, Sanders was a member of the American communist party in the 1980's and through some of the 1990's. It is correct that he says he is a socialist democrat, but, he was a communist and I believe that he still is, no matter his current political affiliation. Kind of like Rand Paul who, like his dad, was/is a libertarian, but, changed up to Republican. Rand Paul is still a libertarian regardless of his current affiliation. Just the conclusion I've come to by the old theory that a "Leopard doesn't change it's spots."

Secondly, he is interested in me and will come after my capital assets in the form of more taxes applied to the income they cast off. You know I only make average of 4% Net. I'm lucky to make even that and it will only become less in time as expenses to hold such properties goes up including inflation.

Well, I know that the republican party is the greatest spin machine in existence. Look at poor Obama. You guys have him as a native of Kenya (not born in America) Eamined the ink in his birth certificate and determined it was fake, paint him as a Communist too. Heck, let's let the pictures tell the story...........



I wouldn't worry about your money. We are in the same boat you are in terms of assets. In reality, we're small fish compared to who Bernie wants to go after. I'm serious.

No, I knew this about Sanders back in the 1990's. I rarely watch TV news, it's all putrifying rot. I vote for the best scenario I see that may benefit me. Registered Republican, but, side with no political party which means I've voted for Democrats as well a Republicans. Actually, even though I'm registered republican, there is no political party that represents me. As far as Obama goes, I cant stand him on just the way he looks. Same goes for Sanders and Cruz. Trump is a bit of a goofy looking bastard too.

Yes, and lets not forget treating the falls (River) like it was their own personal sewer.... dumping their waste chemicals into the water. Another thing the environmentalists and after pushing them.... the government put a stop to.

Well, I don't believe that Sanders was a communist or ever was. Socialist certainly, and the right wing which is really crafty at fabricating fantastic stories that catch on, such as the whole birther thing, have attempted to pigeon hole anyone they don't agree with but frankly.......and please swallow before I say this.... but I'd trust the communist party more than I would the NRA, or citizens united or any like group / lobby. I'm no communist myself, but I do love peering in at the Rev left forum from time to time!

Uh oh, I NRA life time member and shoot NRA 'F' class rifle matches. Been shooting center fire rifles since I was seven years old. In my younger years, 16 years old till about 30 years old, I belonged to team that shot trap and skeet. Shot for Del Paso Shooting Club. Now shoot with Sac. Valley long range rifle team. Can't help it because shooting things just comes natural to me.

Now, I don't like some of the newer NRA rules that have evolved over the last 20 or so years regarding their sanctioned shooting events. They have become too restrictive and too "politically/socially correct" in regards some aspects of the shooting sports. They also scalp too much in the form of fees they tack on to the entry fee's. Also, to be able to shoot/compete at these private ranges you have to be a NRA member to join let alone be able to compete for cash.

Oh, and Sanders has been arrested for protesting during the civil rights movement as far back as 1963. He has had several arrests during the 1960,s and aside being a member of the SDS and a proclaimed socialist, was also known by the FBI to be a member of the American Communist party as well. Also, I'm afraid to say, that in his now twilight years and befuddled mind that he is most likely re living the follies of his distant youthful past as a white civil rights protester. Sorry the guy is a total Scheiße-Ferse bum in my book along with all the other candidates running for nomination this time around. Anyhow, some your little posters with their titles I do find humorous.
