                      I'd donate my left kidney if I could get every partisan democrat to watch this video.

                        Biden is the wrong candidate for the crisis of concentrated wealth the nation faces. He received more campaign donations from wall street than any president in U.S. history (sourcepensecrets.org...THE place to find out what large industries own your politicians). The political moment we're in requires progressive populism; another FDR. Not another corporate-backed crony like Joe.

                            Watched it and agree - Biden was one of my least favorite candidates, so was Bill Clinton at the time. However, I don't think that any other democratic candidate in the primary would have beaten Trump. I hate to say it, but I think that Sanders or Warren would have been beaten easily.

                              Have not watched yet but I will.This state of political affairs that threatens our country is so disturbing. I am a flat out middle of the roader. I lean way left on social issues but way right on $$ issues. My focus on conservative financial restraint and zero trust in any, I repeat any government agency to have anything but a self-interested," protecting my job" point of view is virtually total. I love dogs, but you have to cautious around pit-bulls, and the same goes for any and all government bureaucrats. "Frantic Fred" is so strongly committed to a specific ideology that it is sad. I have not much respect for closed minds. We all can learn something. Every single day. To my mind left or right, liberal or conservative is not what is important. Equal rights and equal responsibility and the ability to pay your bills is what i focus on.

                                I strongly disagree my friend. All the polling showed Bernie would have beaten Trump. I knew MANY people on the right that would have voted for him, they're so sick of being lied to they'd rather vote for an honest leftist than another liar.

                                I think the reason many people thought Bernie couldn't win was because our corporate media told us that a billion times. It was a well-orchestrated campaign to stop him and it worked, sadly.
