What’s wrong with Sanders?
You mean other than he's not a Democrat? He's a Socialist. And has NO WAY to pay for anything. I also find it interesting that last week it came out that the Soviets were throwing their support behind Sanders, similar to what they did with President Trump. But nary a peep from the Democrats or MSM (or even our local liberals in here). Bernie Sanders honeymooned in Moscow. Did you realize that in Sanders' looooooong history in the Senate he has NEVER voted for sanctions against Russia? But crickets.

Sad to see Mayor Pete go, but there was no path for him to get the nomination anymore. I expect Warren and Klobuchar to follow suit after Tuesday. That will leave the so-called party of diversity with 3 remaining candidates - Sanders, Biden and Bloomberg. All old, rich, white guys!

Honest question for you. Do you live, or have lived in for a while, a very liberal state like New York or California?

I think that Tulsi will be the next to go.

No I have not. But I have lived in a very liberal city like Madison, WI. And Madison is just as liberal as California. Why do you ask?

With your rather big hatred (if that’s a good way to describe it) towards extreme liberals (which, as a regular one myself, I don’t blame you) it just made me wonder if you lived in an environment where you were exposed to a lot of extremely left-leaning people who protest a lot/stop you in the middle of what you’re doing to see if you agree with their views, etc. since I find real life experiences can certainly have a play into how one feels on something. But fair enough

I don't have a big hatred towards extreme liberals so I guess that's not a good way to describe it. I don't have a lot of tolerance for either extreme actually. The extreme right are just as bad. But I do find that liberals IMHO seem to have a double standard. OK, both sides have a double-standard when it comes to defending their side (human nature). But liberals seem to always be crying how the right has a double standard much more when in fact both sides do. And as far as Bernie goes, yes I have no love lost for him. Hatred? No. But I'm a realist. His plans are not affordable or realistic. Even half the Democrats in the Senate agree. I actually think he's the most likeable of all the candidates. But his plans and promises are irresponsible without coming forward with how he is going to pay for them. He is being dishonest with the voters there. So when someone asks, what's not to like about Bernie? Well, plenty.
