"If we're going to bring about real change in this country ... we need fundamental change. We need a political revolution," Sanders told host Chris Wallace.

Anyone who has visited a DMV office does not want the government running vast segments of society - unless they fancy themselves are being in control (like Bernie).

Bernie did himself in with younger voters, when he allowed himself to be bought off by Hillary Clinton. He has become a joke to them. I have heard many previous Bernie supporters make fun of him. Millennials may be an intellectually-challenged lot, but they can recognize a hypocrite. My guess is that Bernie and the DNC know this, and that he is in the race to make the other socialist candidates look less socialist.

Bernie has railed in the past, that this is the most wealthy country in the World. He's right! It became wealthy by using the idea of capitalism. It did not become wealthy because of socialism. Also, workers can vote on publicly traded corporation board's dicisions. Buy some stock. Oh, oh, that's Capitalism.

Have to hand it to Bernie. He's out there and in your face saying what he would do, counting on people being dishonest, stupid, and ignorant enough to fall for it. Be concerned about people that don't tip their hand, and believe the exact same way Bernie does.

Revolutions, when succesful, always ALWAYS lead to civil war. The revolutionary factions inevitably fight over who's in charge. Any "revolution" in the US must be stamped out. Preferably aborted before its born.

Bernie, crack open a history book or two, in fact keep reading until you find an example where someone achieved a political revolution and the established political system simply rolled over without firing a shot. You are calling for war so don't be surprised when you get war. The blood will be on your hands comrade. This time the Kulaks are armed and it's going to take more than 25,000 to get us.

We are having a revolution. It is called Trump cleaning out the Swamp Bernie. The kind of revolution we can live with. Unlike your socialist garbage. So are you going to tell your supporters again how you think they have way too many choices in the marketplace, and that you don't think people should have stores full of stuff to choose from? I still remember that Bernie. If you want that for yourself, go south to Venezuela.

No, what we need is to not listen to old fools like you. You're a has-been, and you have no record that demonstrates that you know anything about managing an economy or anything else of value. Like all leftists, you're all talk. And, you're freaking wrong about everything. And, like all commies, you won't take to the streets for a revolution. You expect lemmings (perfect word for dem-rats) to do it for you, while you take the credit if all goes well. People like you are despicable human beings. You love baby killing and destroying everything good and right. How miserable you must be, and how do you freaking sleep at night? Drugs?

I will post as intended, despite #24 admirably covering the main point I was about to make. We are the revolution. We took the conservative movement back from professional pundits who had been opportunistically selling themselves while selling us out. We took the Republican Party back from indolent incompetents who had spent decades conceding our country to its enemies while enriching themselves in the process. We are taking our country back from federal agents who flagrantly abuse their powers, journalists who abet the dishonest narratives that cloud the minds of our fellow citizens, and bureaucrats who govern us all without our consent. And if think for one minute we are going to let you talk your failed and genocidal ideology back into power by promising other people our stuff, you are as insane as your politics.

The play is the third Scott Rudin production of the 2018-19 season to move up its closing date following soft ticket sales.The Broadway production of Hillary and Clinton will close one month early. Producer Scott Rudin on Monday announced that the Lucas Hnath play, which stars Laurie Metcalf and John Lithgow in the title roles, will have its final performance Sunday.The early closing date for Hillary and Clinton is due to underwhelming ticket sales. The play, which cost $4.2 million to produce, began performances in March and drew mixed-to-positive reviews, but has struggled to fill seats, reaching only 36 percent of its gross potential in the last two weeks.

Stephanie Grisham, spokeswoman for first lady Melania Trump, is emerging as the top candidate to replace outgoing White House press secretary Sarah Sanders, according to sources familiar with the selection process. Grisham, a former Trump campaign aide who has served in the White House since Trump took office, is known as a shrewd tactician loyal to the first family. But significantly, she meets President Trump’s top criteria: that Sanders’ replacement be a woman.“When he says he wants a woman, he wants a woman,” a source familiar with the selection process told the Washington Examiner.

At issue in the Alabama dispute was whether the "dual sovereignty doctrine" -- which allows a person to face both state and federal charges for the same offense -- violates the Fifth Amendment's Double Jeopardy Clause. On Monday, the Supreme Court ruled it does not. "Although the dual-sovereignty rule is often dubbed an 'exception'

Um, capitalism by design is extractive and in order to generate profit in a capitalist system, something has to be exploited, that’s land, labor or resources And I think that we’re in late phase capitalism and we know it doesn’t work and we have to move into something new.
