Bernard "Bernie" Sanders, born September 8, 1941 (age 74), is a United States Senator, representing Vermont. Sanders identifies as a democratic socialist. He calls himself an Independent but always caucuses with Democrats. Previously, he served in the House of Representatives for eight terms, after serving several terms as mayor of Burlington. Sanders has a 100% pro-abortion voting record. Sanders is also a film-maker, having made a documentary about Eugene V. Debs in 1979.

At a press conference on April 30, 2015, Sanders announced that he is running for the Democrat nomination in the 2016 presidential election. He held an "official launch" on May 26.[1]

Sanders has a devout following, made up of many of the same people (mostly millenials) that voted for Barack Hussein Obama. He tickles his supporters' ears with all the usual Marxist claptrap; America is bad, banks are bad, equality, the middle class, minimum wage, free healthcare, free college, a government so big it will be like living in a utopia.

2016 Campaign

Sanders calls himself an outsider and anti-establishment. He has spent the last 40 years in politics. He is in fact an insider and the establishment.

Sanders does take pleasure in creating the same straw men as Obama. Specifically, the GOP war on women. Calls to defund Planned Parenthood is an opportunity for Sanders to denounce the treatment of women. He would kill a child in the womb for any reason and at any term but the GOP is extremist. Sanders will say the GOP wants to deny women's health services. The facts are that 13,000 women's health centers are available that are not owned by Planned Parenthood. He supports babies chopped up and sold for parts. No concern for underage victims of rape not being reported. He is indifferent to the fraudulent billing of the US government.

Class warfare is favorite theme for Sanders, pitting rich against the poor. His Marxist lynch pin is the argument that the banks are too big. He also claims that billionaires are hurting the country, citing the Koch brothers over and over. He believes that America needs to spend another $18 trillion dollars despite being $18 Trillion in debt. He has also made claims supporting single-payer healthcare, free college tuition, etc.

In one rant, Sanders claimed that Americans needlessly have too many choices when it comes to deodorant brands, noting that he counted 23 different types of the product for sale. Somehow he tied the story into feeding the poor. produced a satirical video mocking its absurdity titled "The Bernie Sanders Save The Children Fund."

He has said that America is racist, and he puts down America almost daily.

Sanders is the author of "Rape Essays," a 1972 text on sexual behavior filled with lurid sexual language. Because he is a leftist, he was able to explain the text away without the media hounding him over it.

Sanders uses Christian socialism to further his campaign, citing Pope Francis. However, Sanders cherry picks what elements of Christianity he agrees with and ignores the rest. He told a crowd of 300 in Alabama that Jesus was a socialist. [2]

He openly wants to tax the top 1%, 90 percent of their income.

Controversial votes

In all of his years in politics, Sanders never authored a bill that made it into law. Conservative Review has compiled a Liberty Score on Sanders. He gets a F at just 16%.

Sanders headed the Veterans Affairs Committee. Under his purview; waiting list deaths, destruction and manipulation of medical records, whistleblowers punished, opiate abuse, fraud unpunished, mismanagement rewarded with pay raises, wait times to see a doctor has never been longer. Sanders has done next to nothing to fix these issues. Even today while he campaigns, he is still a member of the committee and has no plans to turn the duties over to somebody that will give it the time it deserves to fix.

During Bernie Sanders 2006 Senatorial campaign, it back. Republican opponent Rich Tarrant made an issue over Sanders 2003 vote against the Amber Alert. Which is a notification to the general public, by various media outlets in Canada and in the United States, when police confirmed that a child has been abducted. The bill passed in the House of Representatives 410-14. Every United States Senator voted for it, including Vermont Senators Patrick Leahy and Jim Jeffords. He was also one of only nineteen Congressman to vote against the Women's Rights HIV Testing –Passage. Which would allow sexual assault victims to find out the HIV status of their suspected assailant.

After countless stories of election fraud by the group ACORN, Bernie Sanders was one of seven Democrats that voted to continue funding ACORN. The vote failed and ACORN was stripped of funding in the Senate [3] Bill Wilson of Americans for Limited Government said, "The ACORN Housing Corporation has long been pushing the very loose-lending policies that helped destroy the housing industry. And now it has been exposed for working with prostitutes, as well. Yet, these seven Senators [Sanders] have knowingly voted to keep sending taxpayer money to a highly corrupt organization of pushers and pimps," [4]

Eugene Debs Documentary

In 1979, Sanders wrote, directed, and lent his voice for Debs' dialogue[5] in a documentary which shows a long-standing respect on part of Sanders for what Debs stood for.[6]
