Lovable how? Beach house Bernie came to DC to do good and he has done very, very well for himself. His wife defrauded a bank with a loan application falsely claiming the college she ran had more pledges than they did. But just like Hillary the well connected Democrat operates on a different set of laws from the rest of us.

The 77-year-old Vermont independent senator, who started his political career as a gadfly perennial candidate, remains a pacesetter of progressive politics in America, helping to craft a liberal agenda that includes everything from Medicare for All to a $15 minimum wage to free college tuition.

Yippee, Socialism all around, it will a utopia. Peace, Prosperity, and no gun violence, just like Venezuela was...I repeat....WAS!

The socialist government of Venezuela convinced its citizens to give up their guns in 2012, promising them it would mean peace, prosperity and a sharp reduction in violence. Fast forward six years and the nation has some of the highest murder and gun crime rates in the world, worse than many war zones, and Venezuelan citizens now regret giving up their right to bear arms in the face of a government that has turned tyrannical.

Socialism.......

A Bolivarian Republic, Venezuela turned to socialism in 1998 when Hugo Chavez was elected president after two unsuccessful coup attempts to oust his predecessor. The new regime brought not only a new constitution, but higher oil prices as well. The following year Chavez passed laws redistributing land and wealth, which he followed in 2005 with a land reform decree that would eliminate larger estates to the benefit of the poor in rural areas.

In 2007 the government took control of important oil projects in the Orinoco Delta and later expropriated two U.S. oil companies, furthering Chavez’s nationalization plans

Here is what Bernie will get you.


By Reuters
January 12, 2018



Hungry mobs ransacked a food collection center, and a supermarket in Venezuela’s western Andean state of Merida on Thursday and reportedly even slaughtered cattle grazing in a field as unrest over food shortages spread through the country.

An opposition lawmaker from Merida, Carlos Paparoni, said four people had died and 10 were injured in the chaos over the last two days, but he did not specify the circumstances.

Four years of recession and the world’s highest inflation have plunged millions of Venezuelans into poverty, and President Nicolas Maduro’s authoritarian socialist regime faces mounting unrest.

I think he knows he doesn't have a shot...

But with a presidential run, he DOES have a platform which will force the rest of the Democrat candidates to lurch even more far-Left...

This conflict with the Democrat Party's actual position...

From June, 2018...

DNC panel adopts rule requiring candidates to run, serve as a Democrat


Quote:
The Democratic National Committee (DNC) adopted a new rule on Friday aimed at keeping outsider candidates like Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) from trying to clinch the Democratic presidential nomination in 2020.

The new rule, adopted by the DNC’s Rules and Bylaws Committee, requires all Democratic presidential candidates to be a member of the Democratic Party, Yahoo News reported.

A presidential candidate running for the Democratic nomination must be a member of the party, accept the Democratic nomination and “run and serve” as a member.

Sanders, who has maintained his status as an independent, fought a tough primary race for the Democratic nomination against eventual presidential candidate Hillary Clinton in 2016.
According to the DNC's own rules, Sanders CAN'T "enter the crowded 2020 Democratic presidential field"...

Well we know the DNC will decide who they want before they rig the primaries, so it really doesn't matter who runs. The left does not believe in fairness or democracy when it comes to elections.

That would be a mistake. Extreme candidates aren't gonna beat Trump. They gotta get the moderate voters on their side and not gonna do it with far-left ideologies.
