    I was there in the audience! 🙂 Great episode to be at as a Bernie Fan!

  3. Mad Hatman says:

    So basically he’s going to tax wall street and stop the tax loop holes that
    the rich use to avoid paying taxes like Cayman accounts and making sure
    they pay 30% income tax not the 15% like Mit Romney does.

    Where’s Bernie’s neck?

  5. acuras4ever says:

    Well i love what bernie is trying to do and all his ideas to make the US a
    better country. But his ideas are all good for the poor and middle class
    people in America and not the US in general. We’re the most powerful
    country in the world and with russia and china right behind us I’m afraid
    we need to focus more on ruling the world and staying the most powerful
    country while focusing on becoming a better nation with less prisoners and
    more educated people. And while i trust bernie can achieve the latter as a
    president he doesn’t seem like the right choice to keep America in the lead
    worldwide. All the top socialist countries he’s talking about are much
    smaller and less powerful than the US in a worldwide scale.

  6. Tom McCall says:

    “As the result of its systems and of its efforts, it would seem that
    socialism, notwithstanding all its self-complacency, can scarcely help
    perceiving the monster of legal plunder. But what does it do? It disguises
    it cleverly from others, and even from itself, under the seductive names of
    fraternity, solidarity, organization, association. And because we do not
    ask so much at the hands of the law, because we only ask it for justice, it
    alleges that we reject fraternity, solidarity, organization, and
    association; and they brand us with the name of individualists. We can
    assure them that what we repudiate is not natural organization, but forced
    organization. It is not free association, but the forms of association that
    they would impose upon us. It is not spontaneous fraternity, but legal
    fraternity. It is not providential solidarity, but artificial solidarity,
    which is only an unjust displacement of responsibility. Socialism, like the
    old policy from which it emanates, confounds Government and society. And
    so, every time we object to a thing being done by Government, it concludes
    that we object to its being done at all. We disapprove of education by the
    State—then we are against education altogether. We object to a State
    religion—then we would have no religion at all. We object to an equality
    which is brought about by the State then we are against equality, etc.,
    etc. They might as well accuse us of wishing men not to eat, because we
    object to the cultivation of corn by the State. How is it that the strange
    idea of making the law produce what it does not contain—prosperity, in a
    positive sense, wealth, science, religion—should ever have gained ground in
    the political world? The modern politicians, particularly those of the
    Socialist school, found their different 22 The Law theories upon one common
    hypothesis; and surely a more strange, a more presumptuous notion, could
    never have entered a human brain.”-Frederic Bastiat

  7. João Marques says:

    Wow Bernie Sanders sure seems wildly popular in America… His ideas are
    quite mainstream, at least in Europe.

  8. PhukObama says:

    What a fucking hack. I work for my money, I could give a shit less if yall
    are dying in the streets. You want insurance and to go to school? Get a
    fucking job and pay for it just like I do.

  9. MrJamesLongstreet says:

    Bernie Sanders will never ever beat Hillary Clinton, she is unstoppable on
    the Democratic side. Bernie winning the nomination = Never gonna happen.

  10. SavageHenry762 says:

    Bernie Sanders… the guy in the creepy old van with free candy painted on
    the side that has the support of adults with the minds of children willing
    to go into the van with him to get the free candy with no concern about
    what will happen to them once they enter the van.

  11. bballercheetahfan3 says:

    Bernie needs to make Americans understand all the socialist programs we
    already have. Just say this when ever there’s a question brought up on

    I hate socialism. But I love:

    Social Security
    Public Parks
    Public Schools
    Public Golf Courses
    Public Swimming Pools
    Dedicated Bike Lanes
    Public Water Service
    Flood Insurance
    National Highway System/State&local roads
    Air Traffic Control
    The military

    But I really, really hate socialism.

  12. gene says:

    If it’s sold here it must be made here. And workers must be paid a decent
    wage. Inflation must be stopped by law. Profit % by corporations must be
    lowered to compensate for the higher wages paid…. which translates to
    favoritism to the working class away from the ownership class. Like Bernie
    says we need to come down on corporations that charge way too much for
    their product. And for God’s sake, why don’t we just write a check and pay
    off the national debt, then close down the Federal Reserve. If we need more
    money we should just make it. That’s no problem if we have a law to stop
    inflation. Listen, the system is rigged and we are the suckers. Wake the
    heck up America!

  13. CommonSense says:

    Bill Maher’s starting to look nervous, lol.

  14. El Ateo says:

    The greatest politician in the 21st century!

  15. S3V3N13TT3R5 says:

    People don’t understand that free healthcare means u pay taxes instead of
    paying insurance, when summing them you pay less. i.e. 300 insurance
    becomes 150 tax, for better quality healthcare.

  16. ryusanbusa says:

    This was good practice for Bernie if he wants to be able defend his ideas
    on the big stage in the next Democratic Debate.

  17. Tatiana Mira says:

    Sanders is closest to the “solution” of almost every economic issue in this
    country…KEY WORD: CLOSE. What I like about him is that he is really
    pushing for community involvement and that he can’t do this all by himself
    because if he gets elected, he has a group of conservatives that may not
    agree with him. For those that are already making the comparison between
    him and Obama (our current president) is that they make promises that can’t
    be made….Do you guys not notice that they can’t make decisions on their
    own? They have to fight a group that disagrees with them in order to get
    shit done. It seems really tough.

  18. d gon says:

    lol its over taxes will never stop its always more more more because these
    retards can’t control there spending so they will always ask for more
    look at 6:56 “we may have to go down a little bit lower then that”

  19. Zurassh says:

    How can ANYONE be against free health care and free education? C’mon,
    people. FREE education and healthcare is a fundamental RIGHT!

  20. Reck Tominvayed says:

    Socialism doesn’t strike me as something negative. Maybe I’m ignorant to
    the history of it. But it’s ideas/points make sense to me.
