That's like saying a drug dealer only sold 10 pills while his collegues sold 100. He's still a drug dealer, and Bernie's a hypocrite.


Before you equate illegal drug dealing to hypocrisy, how about first proving the hypocrisy?

The Sanders bought a home the shore of Lake Champlain for roughly $600,000. $600,000 doesn't buy much property in Vermont. It bought the Sanders a modest summer home.

To buy that home, Jane Sanders sold a home in Maine that had been in her family a long time. When you sell a property, normally people invest the proceeds in a like property to avoid paying capital gains on money they don't need to meet their living expenses.

Buying a property that you use instead of rent, does not add income to your portfolio. It adds assets. Assets are collateral for borrowing money you may need for other expenses. Like paying off campaign debts, or financing upgrades on other assets you may own.

I wish everybody could afford even a first home when they are 25. Most cannot because unlike the Sanders, they're not in their seventies with accumulated assets, or job opportunities the Sanders and their generation had.

So? A couple in their 70’s, lawfully employed most of their adult lives can't buy a modest summer home without being called hypocrites? Pfffft!!!

The issue of the profit in illegal drugs that is the source of the criminal mayhem in both urban and rural ghetto's can't be deflected by an attempted character assassination of Bernie Sanders or any other politicians.

The very real problems the sale and consumption of the extraordinary volume of illegal in America should be the primary concern of every American and every lawmakers in our country. Why isn't it?

Why isn't it the primary concern of the AMA, whose practitioners are sworn to do no harm, yet are allowed to ignore the enormous health cost born by individuals and our society consuming these illegal drugs? HIV, Hep C, TB, etc.etc. the AMA is a powerful lobbying group, influencing lawmakers 24/7. Why are they not lobbying to decriminalize drug use, and legalize and regulate all drugs?

Why do we continually permit politicians of both major Parties define issues that affect only a small percentage of society, rather than the whole of it? Things like gun control to control urban violence and mass shootings, when in fact it's the illegal distribution and the ease of access of guns, that put them into the hands of gangsters and mass murderers. Not law abiding gun owners.

Why are politicians allowed to focus on gun control, when it's the activity of illegal distribution of drugs that is the core issue. Drug dealing gangsters wouldn't need to protect their turfs if no illegal drugs weren't in demand on them. Drug profits that put money in their pockets. Money used to purchases even more high powered illegal weapons, causing more violence and mayhem.

Why are they allowed to present international terrorism as a bigger threat, than domestic terrorisism experienced in our urban and rural ghetto's every single day and night? How is it that American citizens continue to permit trillions in debt accumulation to purportedly establish democracy in foreign countries to thwart international terrorism, while we ignore domestic terrorism that takes place 24/7 on our own American streets?

Why are people convinced abortion, which affects less than 1% of our entire population is a real issue? Or LBGT issues that affect less than 5% of our entire population as core problems? Or welfare fraud that affects even less? These aren't national issues that should be making national news headlines constantly. They are headlines purposed to detract from the core issue of corruption of the status quo. Purposed to maintain the status quo, not change it.

The way America handles it's problems affects every nation in the world. The corruption prevalent in world wide politics can be taced to our doorstep. Ignoring it, as we have done for decades, will eventually drive all nations back into the mid-evil dark ages.

Sanders votes with the Democrats 80% of the time. He was elected to the Senate on the Independent ticket. Independent's offer both major Party's an opportunity for their support. Obviously Bernie Sander's disagrees with the Republican Party and its platform 80% of the time. How would you expect him not to support the Democrat candidate over the Republican one?
