    Bernie Sanders, Surging: Our Goal is 'Transforming the Economy and the Government of the United States'

    Bernie Sanders, Surging: Our Goal is 'Transforming the Economy and the Government of the United States' | Breitbart

    BERLIN, New Hampshire — Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT) told a packed breakfast crowd at the White Mountain Chalet Caterers that the goal of his campaign was “transforming the economy and the government of the United States, so that it works for all of us and not just the one percent.”

    Sanders spoke just moments after a new Gravis poll suggested that he had taken the lead in what is largely a three-way race in the Granite State, surpassing former vice president Joe Biden and Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-MA).

    Sanders’s line recalled a promise made by then-Sen. Barack Obama (D-IL) a few days before the 2008 election, when he declared that his goal was “fundamentally transforming the United States of America.”

    The socialist senator from neighboring Vermont told the enthusiastic crowd that while many of his ideas would be labeled as radical, many of them were now being adopted across the country.

    He cited his proposal, four years ago, to provide free tuition for community college, which he noted many cities and states were now considering. He said that now other candidates were adopting his proposal to cancel all student debt.

    “If this campaign is about anything, it’s asking people to ask the simple question of why not — why can’t we do it? Why was it acceptable for the Congress — against my vote — to bail out … the crooks on Wall Street in 2008? But when it comes to young people today who are struggling … ‘Well, we can’t do that, it’s too radical.’

    “What this campaign is about is asking the American people to consider: why not — why can’t we do it?” he repeated.

    Likewise, he said, it should be possible for the U.S. to “guarantee health care as a human right.”

    Sanders repeated a line he has used at other events, labeling President Donald Trump as a bigot: “I never, ever would have believed that we would have a president who is an overt racist, and a xenophobe, and a sexist.”

    He also told supporters that his campaign was best-placed to defeat Trump, adding: “We need to transform the economics of this country and the politics of the country, and we think we are the best campaign to do that as well.”

    Echoing the slogan of the “Occupy Wall Street” movement, Sanders declared: “In the end, they are the one percent, and we are the 99 percent, and 99 is a lot bigger than one.”

    On recent mass shootings, Sanders blamed Republican leaders for stopping gun control legislation: “You have a Republican Party intimidated by the N.R.A. — that’s it, end of discussion.” It was just one more example, he said, of a powerful, wealthy special interest group standing in the way of change.

    One woman asked Sanders about the Trump administration’s recent overhaul of the Endangered Species Act. He replied: “My God, we are losing specie after specie [sic], it’s a terrible thing.”

    A left-wing Jewish supporter from Vermont asked Sanders what he would do to end the Israeli “occupation.” He said that the U.S. should use its financial leverage over Israel to oppose its “racism,” though he also said Palestinian leaders were “corrupt.” He said the U.S. should “use our clout to bring people together” for peace in the region.

    Asked what he would do about jobs in the private health insurance industry, Sanders acknowledged there would need to be a “transition,” and that the focus would be on training people to deliver actual health care, rather than administrative functions: “We don’t need more people sitting around a desk” evaluating insurance claims, he said.

    One supporter asked why Sanders had supported Hillary Clinton after a corrupt Democratic nomination process — what he called “one of the biggest stolen elections in our political history.” Sanders said that he did not see it that way: while the superdelegate system was corrupt, he said, there was a binary choice between Clinton and Trump.

    Asked why he was not “calling out” rival Democratic candidates who had borrowed his socialist ideas, Sanders said he was “proud” that his ideas had spread.

    McCarthy was right. He might not of gone about it the right way but 70 years ago he saw what was going to happen to the U.S. And now they're running for President.
    What is the lake of fire? What is it's purpose? Is the lake of fire eternal hell? Is there any hope of escape for those cast into this lake?

    Sad part is, he has a huge following...
    A socialist will trample over one hundred poor people just for the chance to throw a rock at a rich man.

    “If this campaign is about anything, it’s asking people to ask the simple question of why not — why can’t we do it?
    He who asks the questions controls the conversation. If you fall into his trap, you start having to defend a position rather than holding his feet to the fire with regard to his own. If you ask someone like Mr. Sanders to explain how he might accomplish something, and refuse to accept an answer which is not on point, it becomes pretty clear after only one or two exchanges that there isn't any substance to what he says, and then he looks as foolish and incompetent as he really is. Unfortunately, most people have lost (or never learned) the skills of good conversation.

    Bernie is an old school class warfare type Communist. There is plenty of data to support the belief that the Fed has promoted policy that favors the 1% and drains the wealth of the middle class. As more people move into the lower class and have difficulty maintaining their standard of living, as younger people become mired in debt, as older people see a shakey future for financial independence from their pensions, the more the siren call of promise of a "fair and equitable shake" and security in being taken care of beckons with allure.

    The new socialists add the dimension of identity politics with the common enemy not as class, but as white privilege.

    Socialism does not work and Americans have watched it on the boob tube for years....

    The clash of the leftist socialist communist liberals with conservatives has been underway since 2016 and it is turning violent....

    Dayton - El Paso - Threats Against Walmart and the list goes on and on....

    Hundreds of murders and even more individuals wounded by gunfire in Chicago, Baltimore, etc....

    This is coming across all of America if socialism wins in America....

    Vote and stop this....

    Otherwise find a deep hole and crawl in....

    How conveniently he "forgets" the fact that the banks bailed out with TARP funds actually repaid the treasury. Forgiving student loan debt with taxpayer money is an entire different thing. To accomplish that taxes for everybody would have to go up - and the money just goes to the bloated "institutions of higher learning". Bailouts for universities - ie - using our money to spread more socialist drivel to our kids while we're forced to work harder to pay for it! No thanks Mr. Sanders!

    Magdalen --- you're so right! I turned to CNN for a short while just to hear their spin and it was so easy to see how Don Lemon's questions to his guests gave them the lead in to respond in exactly the manner that he wished them to. Every single time. "Do you think Donald Trump's racist language is leading to more white supremacist violence"? etc.... Only an idiot could miss the framing and direction --- sadly though, there are a lot of idiots around that watch that crap and get to vote.

    We can vote ourselves in to communism, but we’ll have to shoot our way out of it.

    Did the banks do that? I was not aware of that. How complete and on-time were their repayments?

    Re the student loans, most of them are going to be writeoffs; NWIH minimum wage workers are going to touch the principal on even 4 digit loans in most cases. I figure most of them should come out of endowments, especially for the principal and for non-STEM majors or for tuition that at the time was above state college (preferably, community college) rates. The interest is just made-up beyond using current prime rate to calculate the time value of the money, and that's a fraction of the interest on most student loans.
