    Let us wage a moral and political war against the billionaires and corporate leaders, on Wall Street and elsewhere, whose policies and greed are destroying the middle class of America.

    The economy will be so much better once it's run by the people who gave us such monuments to efficiency as the DMV and the Dept of Veterans Affairs.

    And am I the only one seeing the irony in a guy who dodged the draft by claiming conscientious objector status using a war metaphor?

    I'll give it to old Bernie the socialist, though. At least he's honest about his aims.

    And for 40 years his message has been consistent and not changing each time the winds of the polls change.

    If anyone believes unregulated Capitalism is better than regulated Capitalism I gently suggest they read about the Robber Baron era of our history.

    The definition of robber baron sounds very contemporary.

    Capitalism, like democracy, isn't perfect. But it sure beats every other system out there.

    There is a distinct difference between mere regulation and socialism. I trust the market better than I trust the government.

    Oh you mean the same billionaires that are funding Bernie and Hillaries campaigns. Wonder what they will owe them if the win?

    Sanders is an idiot. No surprise you're quoting him.
