Bernie I guess wins Nevada.

I really don’t know his position on guns.

I assume it’s full confiscation, but I’m not sure.

I know it full confiscation of money.

His nomination would mean a Trump victory, but it’s kinda scary thinking about if I was wrong.

I think he would definitely do well with the wack job college kids. They have all been indoctrinated to think they want socialism.

Bernie Sanders is scary. He's energized these young kids to have zero ambition in this world, and believe they deserve what other people worked hard to earn. The problem is what will these kids do when there are no more well to do people to exploit. Why don't these supposedly enlightened people pay attention to Venezuela?

I guarantee you those kids are paying attention to Venezuela but they would argue that our version of socialism won't look like Venezuela. It will look like the Nordic countries. They would say "there's no way Bernie would screw it up like they've done in Venezuela. He would do it right like Sweden/Norway/etc." These kids are lazy, entitled fools.

Well, it won't initially since there a few years of wealth saved up to "go around." But in a few years when the only remaining "hunger" come from a growl in the belly, it will be too late... and then they will be caravanning on foot to Canada! :lol:

Bernie Sanders' policies are guaranteed to destroy our economy. He has so many giveaways that the country's debt position will default. He is pandering for votes without any substance.

The fact that so many young people are buying into this is frightening. In my day, the younger generation was taught to get a degree and/or learn a trade and work hard. This generation wants to live off of handouts.

This generation has been taught that a degree is NECESSARY to function in society, and that it is a benchmark of competence. They do not understand work, or that performance standards must be independent of social constructs (race/ethnicity/cultural heritage/gender). They have been taught by people who generally have less than 5 years work history in a non-service field, or academic internship. The social disconnect is among those who have served overseas, and those who have been completing their degree programs.

Sanders on guns...at least what he will publicly admit to wanting to do.
https://berniesanders.com/issues/gun-safety/
Take on the NRA and its corrupting effect on Washington.
Expand background checks.
End the gun show loophole. All gun purchases should be subject to the same background check standards.
Ban the sale and distribution of assault weapons. Assault weapons are designed and sold as tools of war. There is absolutely no reason why these firearms should be sold to civilians.
Prohibit high-capacity ammunition magazines.
Implement a buyback program to get assault weapons off the streets.
Regulate assault weapons in the same way that we currently regulate fully automatic weapons — a system that essentially makes them unlawful to own.
Crack down on “straw purchases” where people buy guns for criminals.
Support “red flag” laws and legislation to ensure we keep guns out of the hands of domestic abusers and stalkers
Ban the 3-D printing of firearms and bump stocks
Keep asking the question, “Cui bono?” (For whose benefit?)
“Disobedience is the true foundation of liberty. The obedient must be slaves.”

If Socialist Sanders wins the nomination, do we continue to refer to his supporters as Democrats or “communist sympathizers”?

I wondered about this. Bloomberg internal poll claims Bernie would sink down ballot Dems. The Beto effect in reverse.

You are assuming that communist countries actually ever admit to anything other than "Absolute Victory and Struggle in Social Progress"...

We would be out of bread and it would never be admitted.

I am sick to death of watching this unabashed communist get interviewed by sycophantic newsfolks who tiptoe around his economic / political philosophies.
I have seen more than once a newsie refer to Sanders as a socialist and he corrects them to "Democratic Socialist" and they meekly apologize.
Would a Communist be better if we called them a Democratic Communist? How about Democratic Slaveholder, that makes it OK, right?

Hey, here's one how about National Socialist?
Nah, no one else would get the reference.
