So OG. You guys strike me as a bunch of balanced individuals.

tell me, if you had to have a Democrat in the white house (lets just say they won) is Bernie the best of the bunch or the worst for you?

And if Bernie did win what positives could you see from his presidency if any?

This is hypothetical. Obviously.

Postives?

 

Absolutely zero.

I think it would be cool to refer to you all as comrades.

I could quit my job and stop working. That'd be pretty sweet.

Half the people in Bernie's own party disagree with him. That's not even getting to the Conservatives that will surely oppose him. A Bernie presidency is a waste of time. He won't be able to get shit done on anything. Congress will fuck his proposals right in the pussy.

Id prefer Tulsi Gabbard or even Bloomburg at this point.

Beenie is useless. He has accomplished very little in congress and is a communist. No positves there.

I guess he has to print a shitload of money to pay for free health care/university for all and in turn makes your gold, silver and bitcoin worth a lot more.

Hold off on that Medicare For All......even AOC is admitting it can't work...

"A president can't wave a magic wand and pass any legislation they want," Ocasio-Cortez told the website.

If Sanders becomes president in 2020, "The worst-case scenario?" she continued, "We compromise deeply and we end up getting a public option."

She added: "Is that a nightmare? I don't think so."

AOC also said in the interview, though, that compromising for a public option is not the ultimate goal for leftists like herself.

He appears genuinely anti war.

 

Possibly to the fault of appearing weak, so not sure its truly a positive.  I much prefer trump's anti war stance of peace through strength.

Depending on his VP pick, he'd probably die relatively soon given his bad ticker, assuming he actually survives the Trump debates

Well he hasn't accomplished shit since he started, so that will continue. There's that positive...

Has she not heard of executive orders? 

Regardless Bernie is a fan of MMT, his 2016 economic advisor wrote many papers on this...

EOs and laws aside, just the optics of a socialist in the white house would cause a massive sell off in the markets.  Shit youd see that even if he was polling higher in the election is my guess. 

 

IT would be a total economic disaster

Bernie reminds me of the bridge troll on Sunny. 

Democrats had an entire 3.5 yrs to groom and handle a candidate that could win them POTUS. Instead they decided to try to hamstring the president. 

Bernie gets crushed by Trump in a debate. All of the current or future Dem. nominees will get crushed by Trump.

If for what ever chance he is able to pull it off. I think that the only positive out of him winning would be that 4 yrs later the GOP will hold the House, Senate and be primed to put another president in office. Hell that might just happen anyway.

Depends on who his VP pick is.... Because they would end up President after the first year when his heart finally gives out for good.

There would be a lot of gridlock if the Repubs still have control of the Senate.

I thought of a fantastic scam, send associates to the USA to collect $ and send it back to me in the UK.
