What we need is a "21st Century Full Employment Act for Peace and Prosperity" which would make it a mandatory requirement that the president and Congress attain and maintain full employment.

Is Bernie Sanders just one more stalking horse for the Democrats?

We can't make decisions based around any of these politicians. They all play games.

We need to continue building organizations and movements around solving our problems and out of these movements and organizations we will find people to run for office that we can rely on.

I like Bernie Sanders. But, we don't know what the heck he is going to do. Are we supposed to wait for him to make up his mind as to whether or not he feels Hillary Clinton will take up working class issues, concerns and problems? We know for sure she will not bring forward real solutions although she is likely to sound like a soft socialist in order to get elected. How goddamn gullible do these people think we are that we are going to fall for another charlatan, fake and a fraud like Obama?

And what is with this interview? Bernie Sanders wasn't even asked about all of his votes supporting Israel?

And why is he so hesitant about talking about the need to elect more socialists to the House and Senate?
