    Nobody is denying anyone the right to vote. C'mon. This is exactly what you accuse the republicans of doing - spreading fear and misinformation. You can still vote and your vote counts exactly the same. Accuse republicans of undermining the president and democracy after you spend 4 years waging a non-stop war against Trump who was fairly elected? What was that? supporting democracy by repeating that he was elected with foreign intervention, is a puppet president, the election wasn't legit etc.? If you had any serious issues with those things, you would not have them them yourself. You complain about insurrections, but you supported insurrections against the state for the last 4 years using the BLM proxy to throw the country into chaos and terrorize people into submission by proclaiming that some odd 10 officers out of a 800.000 people police force are 'systematically racist'. That's like calling a skyscraper fundamentally unsafe because one floor is missing a light bulb.

      @Michael Wojcicki then you’d obviously see that Bernie isn’t a communist. Like are we still in the Red Scare??? The biggest threat to the American way of life right now is nazism and white supremacy.

    I’m glad Sleepy Joe did the smart thing and brought in so many of the other smart and talented people who competed for the nomination, as well as those who served under Obama. Cheeto Jesus claimed he would only hire the best and brightest, although many of his choices weren’t either of those things, then he ended up firing them for disagreeing with him or throwing them under a bus when there was a scandal. I wish the GOP would find the REAL, true Jesus, because the Cheeto Jesus just makes them crazier by the day. Instead of love for all their fellow man, all they have is hate in their hearts; instead of seeing the truth, their vision is obscured by webs of lies; instead of peace, their minds are full of vengeance, grievance and pettiness. I’m no holy roller, but the sickness within the GOP is directly correlated to their fealty to Cheeto Jesus.

    It is absolutely amazing that Sanders and the MSM continue with the charade of the "Big Lie"! The fact that dems cheat in elections goes back 150 years, they are the party of corruption going back to Tammany Hall, and the evidence from 2020is overwhelming...just no court would take the time to look at the evidence! Let's wait and see what the audit in Arizona finds...

    HAND TO GOD🙏🏿, this morning 5/5/2021, with my UBER driver we got into a current events discussion that culminated into his opinion that the POWERS TO BE WERE TOO OLD TO PROPERLY RUN THE COUNTRY. He ran off a list of who was talking about and yes we all know the names anyway, he got to Bernie Sanders and in my mind I switched to him remembering the conversation I had with my child at a stop light while she was driving me to work some time after the 2020 election. I cant quote it but I said, yada...yada and Bernie Sanders said yada,,, yada my CHILD "what, what what did UNCLE BERNIE SAY!! I'm looking at my child like she had 2 heads. " what do you know about Bernie Sanders? She runs off yada, yada and by the time we got to the next stop light my mind went to OBAMA'S DROP THE MIC EXIT BANQUET. During that he committed about family relationships and he stated and no I can't quote it but his oldest child STEPPED to him over a concert she wanted to go to which he disapproved of. Anyway , apparently she got the courage to do that from UNCLE BERNIE and OBAMA knew it. Barack relayed this incident and turned the evil eye on Uncle Bernie because his child said , I'm Sick of Presidents Running My Life!! where did she get that from, UNCLE BERNIE and he sat at his table with a grin from ear to ear and eyes sparkling like SANTA. So we get to next red light and my child looks at me like I'm the one with the 2 heads, "SERIOUSLY, SERIOUSLY, MA YOU DON'T KNOW WHAT UNCLE BERNIE IS ABOUT" . Well of course I do but let her ENLIGHTEN ME. Anyway those were my thoughts until my UBER driver stated "Bernie Sanders, really not only is he old but he is loud and belligerent and SERIOUSLY, SERIOUSLY WHO CAN HE RELATE TO HIM". I stated the ," YOUTH " . What?? According to my 27 year old daughter Young People Love Uncle Bernie...... Well now we know why. Bernie Sanders realizes that young people know what they want and know what changes have to be made to protect their future and he LISTENS to what THEY HAVE TO SAY. He respects their opinions and Apparently Draws Motivation from Them. He brings fresh, youthful ideas to address age old problems to the table then slices through the Bullshit and gets right to the heart of the problem. YOU GO UNCLE BERNIE!!!👍🏾👏🏿

    The elephant in the room isn't Reublicans like Cruz or Hawley, it's "Democrats" like Manchin and Sinema who gleefully vote down an increase in the minimum wage and stand in the way of increasing taxes on the rich, who have been positively raking it in during this pandemic, to pay for the economic recovery. If you haven't, watch the video of Kyrsten Sinema almost DANCING as she votes down the minimum wage increase. Sickening.
