You Really Perceive Bernie Sanders As Weak
August 18, 2015 7:42am CST
He is a mild mannered man. He is definitely no Donald Trump. He is not going to push people around to get his way. All he is going to do is try to explain. Does need to insult. Does not attack your weaknesses. He is going to show you your weaknesses. Only in hopes to make you a better person. His weakness is people perceive him as someone who gets pushed around. Like when the the Black Lives Matter Women took the stage. Left the perception that he was being pushed around once again. Kind of funny people look at it that way. What should he have done? Look more like a security problem than anything. They should have never made the stage in the first place. That is just my opinion. How do you handle a situation like that? All unexpected. Donald Trump seems to know. Good for him, but Bernie Sanders seems to want to show anther way. A lead by example kind of way. Yet, they still took his stage away from him. In the end everyone lost. The women look bad for doing what they did with how they did it. Bernie looks weak and security can't do their job. Sometimes it may be better to look weak than look strong. How so, because it is a no win situation. He pushes the ladies off stage. How does he look now? A man putting hands on women. He yells over the top of them and degrades them. Looks like every other politician. That to me is how I know Bernie Sanders is a true leader. The problem is the this country in this time does not seem ready for someone like him. He is just more evolved than most including me. The funny thing is what he has been saying and doing the same thing for the last 30 years. Saying the opposite of what every other politician says. That is more dangerous than you think. That gets you fired. That gets you hacked in this time. That gets you threatened. They do not try to silence you. They try to destroy you. Go against the giants and see how strong you really are. Bernie is still here telling us how the system really works. That does not sound weak to me. Sounds like a warrior who is mild mannered. Policy and the way his mind works is different. The country may not be ready for him. Not because he is weak, but because they are not strong enough including me.

I haven't seen anyone trying to destroy Bernie Sanders, even though it was his remarks about Vermont independence that led to a secession movement in the state. I don't see him as weak, but I don't think he's a sumo wrestler, either. I don't see him as a civil rights champion, he comes from a nearly all-white state. I see him as the socialist that he says he is, and that's not my brand of democracy. In fact, it's not democracy at all.

The police state we have now is not democracy either, and buying elections is not democracy. If you do not have a certain amount of money in your pocket is not democracy. Who says it all has to be capitalism? Who says it has to be all socialist? A total capitalist society leaves nothing but rich and poor people. No more middle class. A total socialist society means there might not be wealthy people anymore, but we know their would because people at the top would rig it that way. Why not a hybrid system where socialism balances out capitalism and vise versa. What is so bad about that?

@Rollo1 No, because Jeb is bought and paid for and agrees with the political system as is. Also has a dangerous foreign policy outlook. Just because Bernie is a self proclaimed socialist does not mean he wants the whole system that way and the system would not let him. I am pretty sure Vermont did not let him. They definitely seem to like the compromises he came up with and how he does not obstruct their lifestyle while helping people who need it.
