Sanders is not a communist and most certainly does not want a weakened America.

It would be nice if you'd try having an honest debate spouting caricatures of the American left.
"A first indicator has got to come from his having opted to honeymoon in the most repressive, criminally evil empire of its time: the former Soviet Union. What kind of American would honeymoon in the Union of Soviet Socialist Republics? Of all the places to choose — Hawaii, the Caribbean, Costa Rica, London, Paris (of yore), Rome, Athens… heck, even the Dominican Republic — he goes to Communist Russia? To the place and government system that gave the world the Ukrainian Golodomor Holocaust, Babi Yar, the Stalin show trials, Khrushchev, Brezhnev, the Gulag Archipelago? A Purgatory in which Christians were begging the world to take note of their plight, and from which Jews throughout the world were fleeing by the hundreds of thousands to Israel and America, this Communist went to the Soviet Union and partied?

Nor was he jolted or stunned into reality by what he saw. Rather, he stood by his praises of Communist bread lines: “That’s a good thing!” Praised the beautiful train stations. Yes, and Mussolini made the trains run on time.

Likewise he praised Castro’s Communist Cuba. He attended the Communist Sandinista celebrations in Nicaragua and praised them. He described the Sandinistas as heroic, encouraging them to keep fighting to victory."

I disagree. He has lots of support. Many might understand or suspect that but a lot dont. He just came out leading CA primary this morning. Almost every teachers union has endorsed him. He has a lot of support.
Sanders gets killed in the swing states. He loses to Trump in Florida, Virginia and Arizona, just to name a few...Biden wins all three...

I'd say we spend too much on our military and not enough on our people.



We could stand to reduce our military spending.

Sad to say it but AOC was saying that last week at a Bernie rally. She was saying the Russia thing was made up by mainstream democrats. She also accused Pelosi of holding the articles of impeachment so Bernie cant campaign and it would help Biden. Thats making some Bernie people mad.
I do not care what AOC said. Bernie has had RUssian connections for years. He spent his honeymoon there.

i can only say AOC needs a History lesson.
