I'd say its clear that none of these people are role models. But how is someone that sold out their principles for a lake house a role model?
Everyone is a role model. The real question is how good of a role model are they. Bernie is arrogant and cantankerous and he talks out of both sides of his mouth but he' also doesn't throw fits whenever he's criticized or overshadowed and he doesn't brag about grabbing women by the pussy. Bernie's ideas are stale and have never worked on a large scale and he ignores them when his own personal wealth is involved but at least he has principles to sell out. Trump has no principles.

And I'm not advocating for Bernie. As I stated earlier, elections are about ideas and given the choice between Bernie and Trump, I would reluctantly choose Trump.
Fair points. I never grew up looking at celebrities or politicians as role models, but I guess there are people out there that do.

Investment transaction taxes and reducing healthcare costs with the same if not better outcomes has not worked on a large scale? :?

When 30% of our workforce loses their employer based insurance by the end of the year and they have no means to pay for their regular healthcare, not to mention if they happen to get hospitalized with the virus, and the health insurance companies have to start laying off workers due to a loss in customers, and we have to figure out how to keep them profitable while still paying hospitals so they in turn can continue to pay Docs and nurses, get back to me.

He’s got 3 houses. His 3rd home is a lakehouse he bought in 2016 for $575k. But its just a ‘summer camp’ like thousands of orher Vermonters have.. :lol:
https://news.yahoo.com/sanders-summer-c ... 23143.html

Not his most expensive property- his 3 total are worth close to 2 million.
https://heavy.com/news/2019/06/bernie-s ... me-photos/

I don’t care if someone has 3, or 30 homes. But Sanders is a hypocrite who slams millionaires. Good for me but not for thee. In the past has made statements: “How many yachts do billionaires need? How many cars do they need? Give us a break.”
Sanders is as bad as the private jet flying, private yacht riding, SUV riding, mansion owning limosuine liberals who decry global warming.

No, because he railed against "millionaires and billionaires" in '16, willingly bent over to the DNC after getting screwed in '16 in exchange for a lake house...

...then conveniently only railed against "billionaires" in '20.

You question was clown car status, and you know it. :coffee:

So he was given a lake place to remain quiet and strike millionaires from his lexicon?

There has to be some serious thinking about what it will take to move Biden out of the way and insert another candidate (not Bernie) into there. Biden's not been good during the coronavirus stretch here and that has to give the DNC a lot of worries as the days go on. Trump is a buffoon and has misstepped all over the place during this epidemic, but he's still the incumbent and he's still the President during a crisis (no matter how he handles the crisis) and that's a lot of inertia to overcome.

The leaders of that movement already chose to ignore Biden's sexual harassment. More leftist hypocrisy.

I asked you what the legal basis was for your assertion that Trump could somehow stay in office as long as he wants.

Your reply in the form of a question is irrelevant and so are you

Ouch. Anyone that listens to Rogan even occasionally knows his is in the "anti-Trump" camp. That's how bad Biden is.
