    Is this true? If so, he's done in Washington. Maybe he can get a job under President Trump helping out with the wall.

    I don't blame him. The DNC is as corrupt a clusterfuck as you could assemble in one building and they undermined the legitimacy of the primary elections by conspiring against him. I wasn't going to vote for him, but I like Bernie and respect his positions even though I don't agree with them. And he had a LOT of supporters. He was the true people's choice for the Democratic Party IMO but was steamrolled by The crooked Clintons.

    This will give his supporters another reason to stay at home and smoke weed on election day instead of backing Hillary

    He probably doesnt have many years left in life anyways why not go out like a boss

    Anyone think his mark on politics is a net negative?

    Small fish donated alot of money to get their anti establishment point across and he capitulated to the poster woman of establishment.

    Wouldnt you be LESS likely to donate to a similar cause with the knowlege that even the most seemingly steadfast candidate can fall to the machine?

    He should of went out with some balls but i guess hippies arent meant to run the land of the free and home of the brave.

    They were talking about it on the radio earlier, so I typed Bernie Sanders into google and that site was the first thing that came up. I don't know if it's true or not, I truly don't know what to believe from the media these days regarding politics.

    Bernoe Sanders has never been a democrat. He has always been an independent who caucuses with the Democrats. He became a democrat to run for President only. He will return to being an independant who always caucuses with the democrats.


    Seriously, how did you guys not know this?

    I knew he used to be an independent, but I know I'm not the only one that thought joining the Democratic Party meant joining the Democratic Party.

    Nope. And people wonder why the democratic leadership wasn't rooting for him.

    The DNC "wasn't rooting for him"
    That's an interesting way of describing what they did to Bernie.

    Politics is cut throat for both parties, you can't win unless you are part of "The Crew"

    We know hes an independant at heart if anything that would make him more likely to grow a pair against hillary, even when his supporters begged him not to, and bood him when he was about to.. he still capitulated.

    He only became a Democrat to obtain a bigger platform stage and funding - then got screwed over and in turn, screwed millions of people out of their poptart and chocolate milk money.

    Morals of the story - DNC is rigged and investing money with old guys named Bernie won't pay off for you.

    More Wikileaks is proving that the DNC was against Sanders, Bernie fans are already looking at Jill Stein instead of Hillary Clinton

    so he's back to being an independent. Nobody in Washington gives a fuck. He's an idiot, had a good chance to upset the Hildebeast, but was too much of a gentleman to call her on her lies.

    This is kind of a non-story, he only switched from Independent in 2015 to run for Prez.

    Now that that's over, well...

    Bernie Sanders is going back to the Senate as an Independent — not a Democrat

    July 26, 2016

    Well, it was a good run. Self-described democratic socialist Bernie Sanders tossed his hat into the ring for the presidency as a Democrat, but he now says he will resume being an Independent when he heads back to the Senate:

    Bernie Sanders tells @bpolitics breakfast w/reporters he'll return to the Senate as an Independent, not a Dem: 'I was elected as an Ind.'
