Election 2020 (6 месяцев назад)
Bernie Sanders voted for the Iraq Liberation Act of 1998 which declared that it should be the policy of the United States to seek to remove the Saddam Hussein's regime from power in Iraq and to replace it with a democratic government. He also voted in favor of H.J. Res. 114 which authorized the use of United States Armed Forces against Iraq in 2002.

Definition of consistency. It's a shame that the American electorate--in its infinite wisdom--thought that Hillary and Trump were better fit to lead the most powerful nation in the world

I am not knowledge in this area , but I assumed the five prediction Bernie made come true? 1) A lot of people died 2)People now disliked Bush and some say he was there just for the oil 3) A lot of terrorisms happened all over the world 4)The great recession 5) I am not sure of this but the failure of the Iraq war has helped created ISIS

Why in the LITERAL FUCK did this man not get on the road to the Presidential election? It's sad how broken the system is. I wish that America could be put under some sort of mass hypnosis during election day. I'd make them all vote green party just to give a great big middle finger to both major parties, the wealthy financial donors, and all the slimy, crooked politicians. It's obvious at this point America has Party 1A and Party 1B. They are both morally bankrupt, corrupted by power and money and both willing to abandon the American people at the drop of a hat. Both of the major parties need to be destroyed for the democratic process to function.

Justin (1 год назад)
You are not required to vote for Hillary or Donald. You should consider the alternative such as writing him in, third party, or abstaining. Hillary and Trump both do not deserve to be president. This two party system is nonsense. Yeah, you could consider it a wasted vote. But, guess what? At least it's another vote for third party or something. It's better than giving a vote to two neocons whom do not deserve your vote.

I've already knew that Bernie Sanders is a smart man but after watching this video. I'm more confident than ever before that if Bernie Sanders becomes our president. We would see America grow like it has never seen before. We NEED Bernie Sanders as our president! Not Hillary Clinton or Donald Trump. He knew the errors of the the Iraq War before it actually shown it. He knew invading the turf of Iraq was a big mistake and look what happened to America since the American military went over there in 2003. Hell, we've almost had a depression in 2008 or 2009 which meant that America's stock market pummeled so bad that it almost crashed. Bernie knows that war isn't the answer and it it's not helping us in anyway but make us live in fear/despair and lose our money. Bernie Sanders knows the truth to help America become what it should be. United States of America: The home of the brave and the free where all are welcomed. I'm starting to believe that MAYBE Socialism is the answer to America's problems and NOT capitalism that served almost no good for America's citizens. Only gave us lies, deception, pain, and suffering. People say that free health care and free college tuition will make America fall? I don't think so! I think if our American tax dollars being spent on things that can help make America grow bigger, better and stronger. We can create new jobs and opportunities for people who wish to achieve the "American Dream". I feel more jobs, better opportunities, a better and smarter government, a better education will create more a more intelligent, safer and stronger America. I don't agree with people that say our money is going to stuff like Medicaid/Welfare and it's ruining America badly. When it has been around for many years and it never was a major problem before like in the 90's for a example when America wasn't in no major conflict with foreign countries. It's "War" that is killing the American culture not welfare cases. Keep thinking Bernie Sanders is a communist or that cute nickname "Commie Bernie". Real adorable! You'll end up with a corporate liar, thief and a cheat in Hillary Clinton. or a REAL communist type guy in Donald Trump.

He and Ron Paul on back-to-back days that year predicted exactly what would happen! They both voted no! God bless those 2 men! Any person who is anti-war automatically has my respect!
Dawn Renee Skaien (2 года назад)
This speech was actually the first time that I saw/learned of U.S. Senator Bernie Sanders. I agreed with him then, and have watched him since. And for our last election, I wrote him in as my choice for President. Although I do not agree with everything that he supports, I do believe that he has the best interest of the American people in mind. His courage to stand up and speak his mind, respectfully and thoughtfully, throughout this very difficult time has been encouraging for me.
pahtar (2 года назад)
When I first heard the idea floated of the US invading Iraq, while the fight still raged in Afghanistan, I thought it an absurd idea. Senator Sanders soon voiced many of the concerns I had in this speech, yet his words went unheeded.

Dear Bernie supporters, don't be so emotional and sentimental that to write Bernie's name on the ballot. Please have a second thought, if you write his name on the ballot which his name is not available there will be a chance Hillary Clinton will steal your vote. Vote for the 3rd party to show our support to Bernie's policies. His lose is not his fail but the DNC, he's won millions here and overseas. Thank you!

What would i not give to see this man become the president. I'm saying this when i am not even a US citizen but an Indian who may never even step foot in the US, nor do i care too much for any country but mine, i'm pro humanity though which leads me to support people who'd help us be a better race(species or whatever else you'd like to call it) . But it's so clear to me from whatever i could read over the past year or two that he's so much better than any alternative in the presidential campaign. I would just love to see the good guy win for once. Anyone from the US who reads this please make it a point to vote for him, the world will bless you for it.

+ananya bhardwaj good good...nice to hear.
ananya bhardwaj (2 года назад)
+MrInuhanyou123 it's not a big deal really. I haven't experienced it first hand. It's mostly political agenda and mostly made out to be a lot more than it really is by the media. The problems that you may have heard exist in rural areas to some extent but people in big cities like me never see it happen around them
MrInuhanyou123 (2 года назад)
+ananya bhardwaj do people...largely follow the code there or is it more of a political thing? I don't know if you would know, but i hear a lot of reports about famiies doing really horrible things just because of that system, so i was wondering if it was as serious as reported outside the country
ananya bhardwaj (2 года назад)
+MrInuhanyou123 something we could do without surely. It originated many hundreds of years back to provide structure to the society and its existence made sense then. Now it's just something which brings inequality into the system and the politicians use it to their advantage by divisive rhetoric that gets them votes

Those who truly studied it saw the ramifications, those who governed chose to ignore them. Bernie wasn't so much of a genius in stating it, but he did prove himself to be a man of principle, dedicated to the well being of the both America and the world rather than blindly following popular opinion or being bought out by big money. That is rare today.

This is such an important speech. Not only does it show his careful thought process, uninfluenced by vindictive patriotic fervor, his care for our troops and sympathy for people abroad, and his judgment and bravery to stand up at a time when questioning war was an unpopular position; it also shows he's been addressing income inequality as the most important issue our nation is facing for years. He's truly a champion for low and middle class Americans.

"I agree with Brent Scrowcroft , republican former national security advisor for President George Bush Senior, who stated and I quote: 'An attack on Iraq at this time would seriously jeopardize - if not destroy - the global counter-terrorism campaign we have undertaken." Bernie Sanders, 2002, quoting Brent Scrowcroft.
Cat 52 (2 года назад)
He voted against this, he gave his reasons why he was against this and he was right on everything sadly, yet he was largely ignored. He new the whole "yellow cake" was a lie and that Bush and Cheney were just looking to manipulate people into going into war for profit. He was right on this as well. We are today still paying for this war and it only made terrorist organizations like Al Queda and ISIL strong and now we are playing "whack a mole" with them in the middle east. All we have done is destabilize these regions of the middle east which has given rise to more terrorism. In addition we continue to give strength to these terrorist organizations by continually bombing the people indiscriminately with devastating consequences to untold hundreds of thousands of deaths to innocent women, children and men.
