Revolutionary Socialist Media (2 года назад)
You want to know what is wrong with the USA? Just look at the telephone numbers for Democrats and Republicans, there you have it. The whole media is based on these two parties. Do Americans hear candidates from the Green Party? Socialist Party? Constitution Party? Libertarian Party? participating in mass debates on CNN, MSNBC and Fox News? The American capitalist media only gives time to candidates from these corporate parties. This is why the two party system is in fact a single ideology system. Because neither the Democratic Party or the Republican Party reject the dictatorship of the markets and capitalism!

well said Bernie I agree. the only lobbist that congress should ever hear from are the American voters from the state and federal government only. not corporations or banks or private prisons or foreign countries.

Bernie explains why publically funded elections are needed, yet the SCOTUS sees fit to mock the democratic process, to mock our President and to mock WE, The People For Bernie Sanders.  This is why we need the People's Revolution of 2016.  The revolution will not be televised, Brothers and Sisters.  The Revolution will be Live!

I love Bernie! I may dislike his economics policy and wish he'd meet halfway between our typical capitalist free market and his controlled socialist market, but he is a good and honest guy which is surprising to say the least. Like I said, I want to be able to have youtubers make a living still, and the ability to open my own business if I choose, which would be questionable if he had his way.
Dikran Tawitian (3 года назад)
+Christian Matthew I dont think you should be afraid of such things. This guy is idealist, and he wants good. He is not some kind of crazy revolutionary. I think you guys are lucky, as he is driven by good intentions, idealism and has something super rare these days integrity. As an outsider i dont agree on his foreign policy, but i can see he wants to do best for USA citizens. And damn, i have to respect his stance. I am sure you woudl get a lot of respect from the wolrd if you choose this guy. But sadly your electoral voting system might be a problem. I mean, you guys live udner impression of livign in best democracy ever, but in reality its just WRONG and unrepresentative in so many levels.

I believe in what you say about the nuclear deal, Health Care, and Voter Suppression, but, Bernie Sanders you are walking trash and too stupid to know it. GET OUT OF AMERICA, and go to a socialist country where you belong. Democracy is capable of aid to it's people, without being called Socialism. It is a voted on decision. If you are a Socialist, GET OUT. If you are calling a Democratic decision to help it's people, which is necessary for GDP, then you are too stupid to be President.

ADVICE TO YOUNG BERNIE SANDERS SUPPORTERS FROM A 40 YEAR ORGANIZING VETERAN. SHARE THIS WIDELY! I've been an organizer for 40 years. Here's my advice to young Bernie supporters. Spend little time talking to each other. Use your Internet time to:  1) Get youtube of Bernie wanting to expand social security, and post that youtube link on all senior FB, Twitter, sites you can.  2) Get youtube of Bernie on Free University eduction, and post it on every university page you can. ... you get the idea.  Do not waste time talking to each other, and don't waste time arguing with Republicans.  TAKE BERNIE'S MESSAGE VIA YOUTUBE AND SPREAD IT WIDE AND FAR "OUTSIDE BERNIE CIRCLES" NOT WASTING TIME PREACHING TO THE CHOIR ... THE MEDIA WILL DISMISS BERNIE, BECAUSE THEY ARE CORPORATE MEDIA ... WE MUST BECOME THE MEDIA.  SHARE THIS WIDELY ON ALL BERNIE PAGES AND SITES. AND DO NOT WASTE TIME ATTACKING HILLARY. BERNIE'S MESSAGE WILL WIN. DO NOT GET IN THE POLITICAL SEWER WITH THE OTHER VIPERS.

+David Adkins So of course, we should let them buy our government and commit us to policies that we are not in favor of?    It is fine that they give to charities and institutions of higher learning but you do know that they get tax write-offs for that, don't you? Their environmental policies are all about we need to make as much profit as we can, environment be damned.

Décio Arruda (3 года назад)
This guy has been right before I was even fucking born. What took America so long to listen to him?
Décio Arruda (3 года назад)
+Edward Ashton You know what, I actually agree with you. This generation does have it better, Vox, NYT, etc... are very good at what they do. However, people don't really tune in to them as much as they do to celebrity news which is a big waist of time. I'm a music producer, or trying to be one and when I see that musicians are made famous by whom they had sex with last rather than their latest single, that bothers me a lot because it's unfair to all decent people who happen to be musicians I think. But the number of youth not interested in politics is definitely worrying, I'm surely informing my friends, but still I'm only one man...
Edward Ashton (3 года назад)
+Décio Arruda Well look, I would say two things: first of all regardless of why you're into politics, it's good that you are, and I hope you'll encourage your friends to be engaged as well; secondly, the "shit media" is definitely shitty, and it's definitely what comes on the TV at a very loud volume, but in this age there are so many excellent places to get news—it's just a question of filtering out what's real news from the stuff that is essentially conspiracy theories and whole-cloth fabrications, which have become all to easy to spread via social media. Still, there are sites like Vox and Slate and so on, and I take home delivery of the _New York Times_ (plus online, of course), because I'm a newspaper journalist and really love having a real newspaper on my front stoop every morning. Anyway, I'm not sure that I accept your premise that there's a bipartisan opinion regarding what should be done—if anything—about the media. But if you can substantiate that, I'd love to see it. Part of the problem here in the US is that the older generations have been conditioned to consume garbage television news for such a long time, so that will just take time to reverse.
Décio Arruda (3 года назад)
+Edward Ashton Thank you, but sadly the reason why I'm invested in politics, is because I was born in a country in which political scandals and news take precedence over the latest celebrity couple and such... And I took the time to formulate my ideals and such, my family's all super conservative, I'm not because I bothered to take time out of my hands to think about it, other people from all ages need to also. But when this shit media in this country keeps putting Trump on and not even talking about his policies and bad stuff but rather his latest celebrity insult... Something has to be done to the media, and I think that's a bipartisan opinion
Edward Ashton (3 года назад)
+Décio Arruda May I just say, I'm very glad to see someone as young as yourself taking an interest in politics—and getting interested in politicians like Sen. Sanders to boot. It's very encouraging. We're going to need you and your generation, so don't let people get apathetic and drag their knuckles on the ground; take your friends out to the polling booths!

Dear the next US President Don't leave us to die at the a captivity in Saudi Arabia, if they suspended my program, search for me & my family I will give you whatever you want for our rescue There will be a conspiracy's because the terrorist the Saudi royal family has been already committed a terrorist act in my family + the criminal Barack Obama & his evil wife have been commit a crimes in me & my family so both of them have huge interest morthen ever to lock us, at the a captivity in Saudi Arabia, so they can kill our cases against them + they can easily steal all my money at this so corrupt country The reason for Barack Obama conspiracy From the beginning of his presidency he now very well through the devil that I don't want his black daughter and they will never remain with me when, I will reach America so decide to ignore the American great promise for me & work to lock me with his black daughters in Saudi Arabia Note, under torture at 2010 six months devil torture sessions (which the Americans called Benghazi attack), he said to me some time you will remain in Saudi Arabia if my daughter will not become your favorite Recently the a conspiracy has become worse, it come to me attention that it's still up & running by his evil wife the criminal Michelle Obama The Criminal Michelle Obama is convincing some elderly evil women from the United States to lock me with the terrorist's elderly women in Saudi Arabia  or at least she wants to lock me with her prostitution company where she plan before to have a baby from me then murder me by using her partner kin from Raytheon. Note she want before to inherit all my wealth My work plan against their a conspiracy I will continue my program until I will reach the next US President & I will refuse even with this poverty to go to the Criminal Michelle Obama prostitution company + I will demand from now to meet the most beautiful girls who I love & already elect before for marriage Note I get tortured by devils day and night to change my elections, 2010 torture sessions & its corruption is happening once again, I wish there is no devil on me or at least the terrorists & the white House will be outside this horrible & inhumane communication (Save me before I will get crushed by their witchcraft & change my elections)

Bernie and Elizabeth warren are the only people i know of who aren't bought out and who i can trust to stay uncorrupt when they get into office. Bernie has been fighting for the regular folks all his career, im sure some people have tried to throw money in his face on many occasions but from what we know about him today hes managed to stay uncurrupt. Hes the only person i could possibly vote for now. Hilary is just a bought out fem-bot once she gets into office her liberal mode will be switched off and shell be signing off to proceed with the keystone pipeline along with many other things shes promising not to do  right now in her campaign.
