I hear a lot of criticism of Sanders here, but it's almost entirely just empty insults. What has he actually done that merits all the hate he gets?

That's an excellent point. What has he actually done, in his 35 years as a professional politician?

Some of us like America and don't want it turned into Denmark. Specifically, the things that Sanders hates, like free markets and military power, are the exact things that allow America to lead the world.

His stance on Israel's treatment of the Palestinians is very disturbing. It's cookie-cutter zionist claptrap.

The tide looks as if it might be turning. Even some liberals don't like socialism.

Yeah I don't want the government to own the means of production.

As the right defines it, social welfare programs, market regulations, public education are all socialism.

Although I will concede that quoting Jon Stewart isn't likely to swap someone of your views.

Nothing; obviously only an ignorant Koch shill Rethuglikkkan could dislike socialism.
