Corporate tax cuts for corporations that don't need them, like the ones that just past the Senate, is socialism.

At least Bernie is up front on how and where the nation's money should be spent ... whereas the GOP simply lies.

The country's most popular politician deserves a grammy. The country deserves a Bernie Presidency.

What part of free tax-payer money given to corporations already making record profits do you not understand? That is socialism.

Not too bright.

More appropriate than obama's Nobel Peace Prize because, Bernie actually did something to be nominated.

It only goes to prove, Bernie is a better liar.

Now if he was to win a Nobel prize like Gore, he would be a world class liar.

Here are your liars ... www.drudge.com

While I don't consider myself much of a liberal or a democratic-socialist, the one thing Bernie stands for is fairness for all Americans.

Redistributing tax-payer money toward corporations that are already making record profits is, what's the word ... SOCIALISM.

I don't make exceptions. As a class, politicians are world class liars.

You people try too hard to believe these liars.

Whatever you want to call it, politics is driven by money. It's something voters don't have.

Are you a millionaire or billionaire? Do you own a giant corporation?

You're condoning the lies vomited by Trump and Republicans, while disparaging efforts from politicians like Bernie.

Also, the average donation (by average Americans) to Bernie's 2016 campaign was something like $30 ... so unless you're posting on the DR from your palacial estate on The Hamptons, you're voting against your own interests.

I thought I was clear. As a class of subhumans, ALL politicians are liars. Bernie is no exception.

So why are you arguing on a political message board?

And more pointedly, why are you arguing on behalf of right-wingers?

Shouldn't you be playing backgammon or three-card monty?

If you're retired and set for life, good -- now go troll somewhere else.

How can I be a right-winger if I don't vote and I call ALL politicians liars?

And a middle finger to you too.

Because you're aguing on their behalf, troll.

You don't vote and you say all politicians are liars, yet you spend an inordinate amount of time voicing political thoughts ... that makes you a troll.

The late great George Carlin said he never complained about politicians because he stopped voting ...

You don't vote and troll political message boards while complaining about politicians ... well, complaining about left-leaning politicians.

At least Carlin connected the dots as to why politicians say the garbage they say -- you just argue on behalf of right-wing claptrap while saying you have no rooting interest.

You're confused. I've been tell you and all the rest of you libs, not to believe these people. This is a liberal website.

That's what Carlin was doing.

complaining about left-leaning politicians.

Apparently you don't know what ALL means.

Wrong

Carlin connected the dots.

Here, it's only 3 minutes in length ... youtu.be

I'm not much of a liberal, and Carlin was as far away from being a conservative authoritarian as on could ever get.

The reason you're not dropping Carlin quotes to bolster your arguments is because you're a right-winger arguing on behalf of far right-wing ideology, and you'd be called out if you did.

I highly doubt the person from whom wealth is taken to be redistributed to those who didn't earn it thinks it's fair.

And that's the problem with your thought. It's always "fair" when it's not your money being taken.

What this scenario ignores is wealthy people are generally responsible for distributing the money in the first place. And if you believe they're not unfairly distributing funds. You're being naive.

So. To have external forces balancing the distribution of wealth does actually end up making wealth distribution more fair.

This is our current system and what Bernie wishes to end. We currently redistribute from workers that earned it to owners that did not. Federally we also redistribute wealth from GDP growing states to economic failures like Mississippi.

Republicans have a different definition of "earned" than what most people would think. They equate "owning" with "earning". How much money do shareholders "earn" if the workers don't work?
