His whole platform is what can the government do for you and risks 18 trillion dollars of debt for the US in 10 years. But he not through yet, more to come. The man is just another liberal fool making promises he can’t keep.

account of the audience reaction does not match
what I heard. The audience reaction was
surprisingly enthusiastic and loud, especially
when he spoke about justice and income
inequality. There was not just polite applause,
but quite a bit of cheering.

I am as liberal as they come, so much so that to me Sanders is a centrist, still I feel no need to bash others who are not. We must compare ideas and learn to listen to one another. I do not want Trump as president, but even Trump has something to show us once in a while.

Oh wait, he is!

The argument for greater equality and simple fairness should be made as a civic argument, that we all share citizenship as Americans and we all have the same basic needs – education, medical care, freedom. One doesn’t need to invoke religious authority to make the case. After all, this isn’t Saudi Arabia.
Unfortunately the kids at Liberty are subject to endless indoctrination by carefully selected and screened professors. To call this place a university is a stretch. The Party line rules all.

The students were probably not so into him. And he probably did not go there thinking he was going to win new people. But any candidate who reaches beyond their own base and comfort zone, and remembers to get along with the half of America that hates them…. well maybe you can make from friends along the way. Hope to see more of this stuff. Maybe Huckabee at UC Berkeley? If Berkeley has the nutz any more for wild discordant stuff.
