    I think this is a damn good thing. Bernie's got principles.

    Some might argue that he "lost fair and square."

    Yeah well, I disagree with that sentiment. But, it's been discussed ad nauseam at this point.

    Dont his sons not even address him as father? because he was never the "administrative type"?

    sounds like he doesnt believe in family in general

    Sometimes, it's fun to just the grenade out there to see what will happen.

    LOL. Me and Jack have been round and round on that topic already.

    Good effort though.

    Bernie Sanders is a moron, but everyone already knew that.

    Communists believe children belong to the state not the parents.

    He deserved to lose to Hilary, one of the dumbest politicians I have ever seen. He's more like a salesman selling a dream that could never be delivered.

    I don't know anything about Bernie's girlfriend's son or his politics, and I doubt that I'd be a fan of his. But for the sake of argument, suppose Bernie Jr. is objectively better suited to a career in Socialist politics than is Bernie himself. Why shouldn't Bernie support his own son in that situation? Isn't blanket opposition to "dynasties" a little... well... arbitrary?

    Wouldn't arbitrary be supporting any dynasty while you're talking about the fact that one of the biggest problems with modern American politics is dynasties that, by definition, violate the principles of a nation ruled by the people?

    That man has honor.


    Honestly, I don't understand how fucking brainwashed Americans are to support Dynasties.....We had the Clintons, Then the bushes.....and now people want Ivanka Trump and Mitchelle Obama to run? I understand people are lazy so this a good shortcut to vote for somebody but come on.

    It seems to me, Americans are full of fucking slaves who want so king/queen.

    I didn't know a Michelle Obama or Ivanka Trump candidacy was popular? Where are you getting these statistics that suggest that they would be?
