Oddly enough, doing this with Clinton is much harder. I am not making this a slam about her changing positions, but you really have to ask - when?

Yea, like gay marriage would be Con 10 years ago, but idk now. She's just a follower. Changing her position to appease the establishment. Not an honest politician.

That's because Sanders is the Dem's version of Trump; not afraid to clearly express how he feels and believes about issues. Clinton is the Dem's version of Jeb!

Sanders is for an estate tax, with a 65% top rate.

Amen to that

Since you blocked me and I cannot communicate with you any other way, I shall just post it here.

I would like to debate you on something, as in Capitalism vs Socialism, minimum wage, nationalized health care, taxes, etc.
