Bernie Sanders Running Mate?


#1

After Mr. Sanders announced he is going to run for President as a Democrat has anyone heard who he may be asking to be his running mate? I'm hoping for Warren as I'm sure most are who are on the left side of politics are thinking.

I unfortunately think Clinton will get the nod as she will fool the sheeple who vote Democratic. The same sheeple who voted for change the last 2 times. As if letting the worst white collar crimes go without punishment is a real change. First it was for a minority and now for a woman as they believe that is what matters above all. It's what they say not what they actually do.

Maybe Chairman Mao?

Leno’s fruitcake lady

Possibly another communist–but who really cares, Right?

You don’t think it’s getting a little ahead of the game for Mr. Sanders to be trying to figure out his running mate? He has very limited chance of securing the nomination for a variety of reasons. Trying to figure out who Mr. Sanders might have as his VP is a waste of time barring some real political miracles.

He is more of a socialist. There is a difference.

If we’re bringing people back from the dead just go straight to Karl Marx, although i suspect these new liberals would prefer someone with more understanding towards those who are different … so Stalin would be the ideal choice for the modern liberal.

Not really, no there isn’t.

It’s like Bud and Bud Lite. They are both piss, both shit beer drank only to catch a buzz, one just has a different color can, and a slightly less shitty taste is all.

That little explanation takes some serious leaps of faith. It assumes that property rights and freedom of choice in some areas are maintained in socialism, when history has proven that is only the case if the majority allows it. In BOTH the individual has no rights.
