    Interesting, didn’t the DNC stop him in 2016? Are you saying they won’t be able to do it this time around?

  • bruh if i have enough money to buy a $200 coffee machine I shouldn't be forced to use a $20 Mr. Coffee just because my neighbor can't afford a nice machine, people shouldn't all be held to the lowest common denominator

    im not sure how you can compare a $200 coffee machine to owning 3 houses and flying around first class.

    That doesn’t sound like socialism to me

    Bernie is not advocating for socialism in the original definition. Bernie is advocating for what he calls "democratic socialism." This is essentially a hybrid system with capitalistic and socialistic elements. Capital and wealth building still exist and flourish but the social safety net is significantly enhanced to give more people in the middle and lower class the opportunity to achieve wealth themselves.

    First class flights are not hypocritical to this ideology. We do not want to eliminate first class but rather we want more people to have the ability to fly first class.

    You are using straw-man arguments by not outlining this clearly.

    If he has the money to fly first class, why shouldn't he?

  • tl:dr OP and the white dude in the tweet have no idea what they're talking about in relation to socialism

    Most of the Bernie bro’s in here are more communist than socialism. So it’s very interesting to see communists defend capitalism. I personally have no problem with Bernie owning three houses.

    Doesn’t seem like a one time event though. Are you defending it?

    That makes sense. Interesting to see how Bernie transitioned from Communist to what looks like capitalism the more he has aged. Really makes you think.

  • Bernie did help fund the F-35, which is one of the biggest military fumbles and expenditures.

    i think I see your game OP and in an underlying sense I agree with you, but your profile pic, avy, and banner makes me think that you're just trying to troll rampantly.

    I like where this convo is going, please continue.

  • If better worker rights and stronger unions and stopping corporations from evading taxes will hurt me then I'm ready for that pain. Strive for it. If the working class finally realized profit is theft and it ends up "fucking everyone" who is the rich, I'm ready for it cause I ain't f*** in a good week or two.
