The Ultimate Bernie Sanders Thread...

Currently polling a long third, can't see him winning.

I struggle with Bernie Sanders a little.

Lauded / Reviled as a socialist, it seems that the US politics are weirder than even ours at the moment.

Sure, his politics around things like Universal Healthcare might sound hugely revolutionary in the US but to me (and I suspect a very significant number of Europeans) it is just "well, duh, of course it is a good idea. Dying because you cannot afford insulin in the richest country on earth seems like a problem that should be able to be solved". At most he is keen on the Nordic model of social care and taxes - and last time I looked they weren't exactly a hotbed of socialist revolutionary zeal. He accepts the facts on global warming. Again - this shouldn't really be earth-shattering news.

On the other side, he out-Trumps Trump on trade and international relations. He seems to want to scrap nearly all US trade deals including NAFTA. He blames China for a lot stuff. He is isolationist.

I struggle with Sanders supporters more. When he lost the race, a significant number of his supporters had to have swapped to vote for Trump. How in the name of all that is holy does that work? As I say US politics. Weird.

After the spoiled brat Trump it would be nice to have a more mature person in charge.

Could the oldest person ever to become US President be about to lose that record?

Was it just me that had the video with Hebrew subtitles?

Anyway about Bernie, is he even a Socialist? I guess to an American he might be, but to a lot of the world he is fairly central.
