Why? Because receiving medical care can never possibley be a right. Instead, it must be regarded as a privilege earned from having the money to pay for it.
It's not his medical care stance that scares me - at least I can see logic behind that. It's his "we're going to prosecute executives for x,y, or z reason that I just made up". No laws. No due process, just "I don't like them, so I will use the system against them". You can't say stuff like that. That's some late Roman Republic bullshit where you prosecute your political enemies. And his attitude and campaign have engendered Bolshevik-style followers that even fight with others on the left for not being 'true to the mission'. Buttigeig, Biden, hell even freaking WARREN, the other leftist has complained about the Bernie Bros. You're blind if you don't see the danger that he represents.

He even says he wants a revolution. I bet you do, too. And I'll bet you've never read about one, let alone lived through one. It's a fucking terrifying nightmare where people justify the worst behavior imaginable because it's all for the cause. This is how governments fall: it's guys like him.

Che Guevara is a prime example. And people wear his likeness with pride. That monster would be the head of state in cuba if the cia hadn't got him.

So if we print up a couple million T-shirts with his picture on them and give them out...think he might go away?

Bye, bye Bernie the MSM,Deepstate, Soros, Clinton bunch have decided and you are a goner. They are behind a brilliant, dynamic young outsider, a man of integrity who can’t be controled, the conquerer of CornPop, the father of a successful international business man and Naval hero.Bernie your skin is just too white and the chosen one is truly a man of color, so take the $$$$ and get behind the chosen one.The Ruling Class has no clothes.

I find it amusing to see Dems and their media allies going out of their way to insist the DNC is not screwing Bernie...and on the flip side seeing Reps and conservative media insist that they are. Dems are terrified that the Bernie Bros will stay home in November while Reps are hoping they do.

The Dems are pretty screwed either way. Bernie Bros will always think he was screwed if he doesn't win the primary so will be less likely to vote and show up for Biden. If he DOES win the primary then his extreme socialist policies will likely scare off a lot of the moderates and any independent voters they could have gotten if they had Biden as their candidate. The question for the Dems is 'Which one loses us the least amount of votes'. That answer is likely screwing Bernie over again.

What I find amusing is the discussion of ending the primaries and debates, because Biden clearly has this thing won. What is amusing is the previous outrage and cries of voter suppression on super Tuesday because some folks had to wait in line to vote, and it was intentional on the part of Republicans.

Can't vote early, cause your guy/gal might not still be in it when the day to vote comes. Well, what about the folks in Nevada that voted, should they now get to go back and cast another vote so their vote counts? Can't vote early, my candidate might not still be in the race. What a load of horse shit. If your candidate isn't still in the race, he was gonna lose anyway and your vote would have still not counted.

It sure appears to me that cancelling primaries is absolutely voter suppression, and the only party that can cancel the Democrat Primaries is the Democratic Party. Once again, guilty of what they claim others of being guilty of.

She's. You left out the she's.

Probably just an oversight.
