    Does anyone know someone who will be voting for Bernie Sanders?

    I do. I have had several I'll describe as tense conversations with someone I sometimes have to work with. It is obvious that he is an avowed socialist that wants the government to own and control everything because "it helps the middle class."

    First tense conversation went like this. Myself and 6 of my coirkers were traveling down south in a van, trip takes 8.5 hours. Naturally plenty of the conversations amongst us revolve around work, problems and solutions. Komrade asks me about going to full time status with the company, he was part time but working full time hours and was offered full time status. I was in the same situation by choice previously and after my parents passed, I went full time status. The difference is very little, a few more paid holidays and paid time off days and eligibility for the company healthcare plan in exchange for giving up the option to opt out of certain work assignments, but FT also moves you into a status of being selected for work over a PT employee lessening the chance of you filing for UC benefits when work slows down. The conversation went like this, I gave my opinion that it was a good move for me as I leveled out my work schedule, more consistent when times were slow, and got onto the HC plan vs paying out of pocket 100% for a plan that had less benefits. His response was "oh, I don't have to pay for HC, it's free." I said "free?" "What's this free shit?" His response was "well I don't earn enough money, so I qualify for Obamacare subsidies, it's free." I said "free?" "Nothing is free," I began pointing, "him and him and him and her and him and him, we all paid for YOU to have free HC, nothing was free." His response was, "well, I did not have to pay anything for it."

    Today was conversation 2. He is all thrilled Bernie is leading in the polls over Hillary. His response was that Bernie is for the middle class. When I explained he was going to take his house, he said "take it, I rent." His kids all moved to Oregon to live in another communist haven state, he is not far behind.

    Who? Please stop all the career politicians. And let's vote for a person who really wants to bring industry back to America. We don't need no more community organizers. And I hate going shopping I spend hours trying to find something made in the usa. Please vote for Donald Trump. Please try to help real industry have a come back in America. Everyone is trying to get fast food and other jobs to be paid 15 dollars an hour. Are they crazy? My first job paid 2.10 an hour. Flipping burgers is no career. Working for one of the big 3 auto makers was at one time. Till we allowed them to get taxed to death. Now they have a lot of stuff made and assembled in Canada and Mexico. Let's stop driving industry elsewhere. Let's have clothes and other products made in America again.

    Let's give our children a chance at a better life. And get all the drastic changes Obama did reversed.

    Let's vote for Donald Trump.

    every free loading democrat who claims to be intelligent will vote for the socialist. they would have voted for the hildabeast but she is in so much crap right now that people do not want to be associated with her. in other words some voters dont want to be labeled as a supporter of a corrupt candidate. But like most free loading democrat, they are all willing to trade their liberty for the promise of security and social programs (handouts) from the govt.

    Personally I endorse trump, but he needs to start changing his tactics and he needs to watch what he says. He needs to start acting presidential if he is to win this election. starting fights with women will eventually catch up and hurt his campaign if he keeps running his mouth in a negative way.

    Ben Carson is catching up on the polls, nice guy and very smart but I dont think he has what it takes to stand up against china and russia. he is too nice to be a president.

    Well I prefer him to Hillary. He can win the Dem nomination and the reps will put up a nobody and win the general election. Bernie appeals to people that have a hard time remembering to vote ( not a bad thing).

    He will appeal to the people that are turned off by the hildabeast debacle. However, those people are still the ones motivated simply because the want free stuff from the people that actually work and put themselves in a position to succeed. Time and time again socialism has been proposed as the great societal equalizer and time and time again it fails. It simply does not work. They run out of other peoples money.

    There are a lot of Dems that won't vote if he gets to be the nominee, just like a lot of Repubs that wont vote if Trump gets the nomination. This election is going to be like all the others in the recent past a choice between bad and worse.
