What is at Stake for America in Bernie vs. Hillary

Bernie Sanders is no more authentic than Hillary Clinton and she is no less radical than he is. Both her attempts to appear mainstream and his efforts to seem radical are political poses that they deploy to bring in money and support from major blocs within the Democratic Party. Underneath the theater, Hillary Clinton is a longtime Alinsky fan while Bernie Sanders stumbles trying to update his views with the current obsessions of the radical left on everything from immigration to gun control to race.

The real struggle isn’t over beliefs, but over tactics.

    Given the choice I’d go with Bernie simply because he is not an entitled idiot. Loon? Well yes.

      All I’m saying that if either of these doddering fools gets the nod. they had better have a viable pick as VP because I doubt neither of them will be alive in four years.

      If these are the choices there isn’t much point in taking part in the political process any more. It’s time to check out and go your own way.

    • Hopefully Hillary will be wearing stripes soon. That will give Burnie a boost in the polls.

      But in the election, it’s a big brash Trump promising to “make America great again” or a whiney Bernie Sanders promising “socialism”.

      Has the left so destroyed the American dream that a whiney socialist will win? I doubt it.

    Bernie has two big advantages over Hillary. He has kept his nose clean and his interpersonal approaches are far superior.

    I’ve a soft spot for Sanders. Living in Montréal, you’d see him on T.V. a lot. He’s an interesting character and he comes across as authentic. A lovable, good old fashioned Bolshevik. He did a great job of revitalizing Burlington’s waterfront. It’s picture post-card perfect. I hope he blows Hillary right outta the water.

      “A lovable, good old fashioned Bollshevik.”
      How is that any different than an affable smiling Nazi?

      Albert Kesserling for President!
