    Robert Reich

    What amazes me, frankly, are the crowds. Not since Robert F. Kennedy sought the Democratic nomination in 1968 has a candidate for the nomination of either party generated such large numbers of people eager to see and listen to him. None in living memory has summoned such crowds this early, before the nominating season even begins. Even Sanders' advisers are amazed (I spoke with one this morning who said they never expected this kind of response).

    What's the explanation? It's not his sense of humor. It's not his youth. He isn't a demagogue, bashing immigrants or pandering to hatred and bigotry. It's that he's telling Americans the unvarnished truth about what has happened to our economy and our democracy, and he is posing real solutions. And it seems that America is ready to listen.

    What do you think?

    I keep my fingers crossed.
    Gov Kasich enters tomorrow on the Republican side.
    He's the one that scares me the most, he would be the toughest competition.
    Moderates would go for him, not the radical right wingers
    But not likely he will even get noticed in the clown bus.
    It's so early that by this time next year we could be looking at a totally different race

    Historic records show that your way doesn't work, and never worked.
    make people compete, or loose the #1 status.... which we already are sinking (Shhhh...talk about Trump being a jerk)

    I'll have more later..let the vicodines kick off first (if I don't nap..I'll add somE vAlue to the convO)

    as opposed to a gop " taker" ? to quote ben carson and donald trump " we can make america great again " obviously our candidates play their cards close to their vest and all know how to make this country profitable. Sorry if i cant answer your question because our candidates are not telling us in detail how this is going to happen ?

    Kasich is a ronald reagan koolaid drinker and that alone is going to sink his own ship ! i saw his speech today and it was all about his days with old dutch. I didnt know weather to laugh at or cry for him ? it was also said that kasich has very limited pac funds ( around 300 million ) that isnt squat compared to the avg candidate expected to spend 1 billion by election day

    Yes but he does pay more attention to the poor than any of the others, sure talks alot about his religion that make me nervous but he seems to walk the talk more than most do.
    I watched way too much of Trump in SC today
    OMG he is so in love with himself it get sickening to watch. He must be the greatest man on earth to listen to him.

    kasich like many others con people into thinking anything they want. As i said previously kasich learned what he knows from reagan who pulled the same stunt then turned the tables on the middle class. I dont trust this clown and wont be voting for him & as expected his pac fund isnt exactly giving him a blank check either

    No Woody. Us middle class folk will pay Bernie's taxes for those rich folks through higher priced merchandise that the rich produced. The rich don't pay taxes. The higher percentage only looks good to the jealous folks on paper. It gives them a chubbie to see the rich being taxed at 90%, but the fact is, the rich don't pay it.....we do.

    Money doesn't do the voting, ignorant citizens do. There is more than enough opportunity to get in front of the cameras to get your message out without have 10,000 commercials with your face on them the day of the election.
    An educated citizen doesn't let the money get in the way of the message, but that's our entire problem.

    They don't pay it, you don't pay it, who pays then?
    If you don't tax the rich dude what happens?
    He sticks more money into his pocket.
    If he pays tax he has less to stuff the wallet
    just like you

    The country needs money and who do you get it from?
    Willies Sutton the bank robber was asked why do you rob banks. he said because that's where the money is.
    The government has to get it from somebody who can afford to give it.
    Can you?

    The country doesn't need more money, the government does, because they spend too much doing things they shouldn't be doing in an innefficient manner.

    The govt has brought in record tax revenues thus far this year
    The projected deficit will be almost 1/2 a trillion dollars
    The is a spending problem not a revenue problem
    The govt needs to stop spending with reckless abandon
