    Sanders does, he's running as a Democrat. He could have ran as an Independent candidate or elsewhere. It should come as no surprise the Democrats favor Democrats, hence the Hillary support last election. Like I said he does nothing for them, just wants to take advantage when it suits him. I always felt we should have more (strong) parties, he could have been the catalyst for that. If he doesn't trust them, doesn't consider himself a Democrat, why does he keep running as one. It's for the reasons I stated in my last post.

    Glad your still active in the thread but I'm going back to my wine and my company. What about all the other points in my reply? As for "independent", the only independent ever elected president in our history was George Washington...do the math.

    You mentioned something about regime change. If Sanders becomes President, it's not like we're going to pull out of all those countries. We have strategically placed bases all over the world. Of course, less interference in other places is good but it's not like problems aren't still going to happen. There might be times where he has to take action.

    The rest of your post, still no numbers. Again, people are going to want to see how this actually affects their pocketbook. Sanders is a gift to Trump.

    As far as Independent, yes, he could have ran as one. He could have built something instead of basically being a sort of parasite.

    Constant leaks about Russia, Russia, aimed at Trump and Bernie. IC and media are trying to manipulate us.
    They don't want Trump and know Bernie can't win.

    They should have done this a long time ago...
    Britain announces immigration policy barring unskilled migrants

    Britain announced an immigration policy Wednesday that would prevent unskilled migrants from entering the country, requiring migrants to be English-speaking and have a job.

    Home Secretary Priti Patel said the new policy will make it easier for “the brightest and the best from around the world” to enter the country, calling it a “historic moment for the whole country.”

    The plan, which is intended to go into effect Jan. 1, 2021, aims to reduce the country’s reliance on “low-skilled” migrants and push companies to develop technology and automation.

    ADVERTISEMENT
    It is encouraging firms to recruit foreigners “with greatest talents,” such as “scientists, engineers, academics and other highly-skilled workers,” according to the government's description of the policy.

    “We need to shift the focus of our economy away from a reliance on cheap labor from Europe and instead concentrate on investment in technology and automation,” the Home Office announced.

    Patel asserted in various TV and radio interviews Wednesday that businesses need to focus on recruiting “economically inactive” British-born adults between the ages of 16 and 64, instead of bringing migrants into the country.

    The Home secretary requested firms dial in on the British natives and “up their skills and make their skills relevant,” according to The Guardian.

    The immigration policy will overhaul current rules and create a “points-based” system, in which migrants need to meet a threshold based on their skills, qualifications and potential salaries, according to the government policy paper.

    In addition to speaking English, migrants need to prove they have a job offer from a known employer with a minimum 25,600 pound (about $33,000) salary.

    Which doesn't change anything in my post, Sanders still a parasite. And I decide who I vote for, not a corp.

    I know Trump wont try and dismantle the constitution or the republic of America, i don't have a choice as to who to vote for. Joe Biden, Amy Klobuchar and Michael Bloomberg are the only Democrats i truly trust, per say that Biden,Klobuchar or Bloomberg won the presidency, i would feel pretty safe with my beliefs, but with Sanders, Cortez and i think their are socialist moles hovering around the democratic party, and that spells danger to me.

    So i have one choice = Donald Trump

    Everybody is better off financially except for one group down at the bottom. Democrats. When everybody else is making money, they are going broke. And by a large margin. This explains quite a lot. Teach a person how to fish, they learn how to catch more fish. Teach a Democrat how to fish, and they starve. And then they demand your fish.

    Same with the college graduate numbers, only +2%.

    Wow, Clint jumping off the Trump Train.

    -------------------
    This tweet from Sanders is such a problem:
    I've got news for the Republican establishment. I've got news for the Democratic establishment. They can't stop us.
    @BernieSanders

    He's sounding more like Trump. Leader of some revolution type stuff. Let's say Biden gets the nod, well then Biden would be considered part of the Democratic establishment and Sanders voters will stay home. And that's not what I call unifying type talk. It's me or nothing type talk. Sanders is screwing this all up.

    ------------
    Side note, will Trump go after Clint now? That would be something. He usually goes after people in these situations. I don't think Trump has the balls to go after Clint.

    Just thoughts...

    If Sanders wins the nomination, democrats may stay home to try again in 4 years.

    If Bloomy wins the nomination, they may hold their nose and vote for him just like conservatives did for Trump.

    Sanders is going to win this one.

    So we have South Carolina next Saturday, could be Biden's first win. If he loses SC, he may be toast.

    Then the big one Super Tuesday on March 3, 10 days from now. 14 states

    https://www.270towin.com/2020-election-calendar/

    Yep, they may sit home, some may even vote for Trump to insure we don't go full blown Socialist.

    Then if it's somebody else, Sanders supporters will stay home.

    This is looking like another 4 years of Trump.

    Quoting a comment:
    "After endorsing Mitt Romney and famously delivering a speech at the 2012 Republican National Convention to an empty chair that represented Barack Obama, Eastwood never officially backed Trump. In a 2016 interview, he expressed displeasure with Trump and Hillary Clinton, saying there’s 'much funny business on both sides of the aisle.'"

    How is this ditching Trump? Seems like he never supported him.
