That's decriminalization. Bernie is advocating legalization. There's a big difference.

Ron Paul. Not Rand... And he said this way before anything regarding this election started, so Sanders is actually the first candidate who endorses it.

If this post meant "this election cycle only", then that's a criminal misuse of the word " historic".

Ron Paul.

Who was running in 2012 and was still in the race when the bill I sourced was crafted and put forth through committees - https://www.opencongress.org/bill/hr2306-112/actions_votes

So again, no Sanders is not the first and he needs to come up with his own material

It's exactly the same shit as Obama, "He's for change!"

He's proportedly dead against immigration too because he thinks it'll undercut the current american workforce, but he just added an illegal immigrant to his staff to garner the latino vote.

Edit: "He" in the second bit is Sanders

On immigration its kind of a yes and no issue that Bernie navigates carefully (much like gun control). Folks who watch his moves closely would realize immigration policy is something of a blind spot right now that none of the other canidates have had the foresight to zero in on. Even Sanders realizes that his policies are unsustainable with porous borders. The reason I know this is because a majority of the democratic vote in my area is hispanic and I am part of the Sanders grassroot campaign. In the past Sanders has said he would seal the borders, but I have a feeling there would be some amount of compassion and ethical treatment given to those already here illegally, in contrast to the folks who haven't technically been committed of a crime sitting in private detention centers LITERALLY making a dollar a day.

Correct me if I'm wrong, but isn't he supposed to represent what the voters want?

Not if it will burn the country to the ground, Sometimes you have to say no. 2 things that everyone sees as a good thing are actually a wolf in sheep's clothing.

  1. $15 minimum wage, Sounds great right? Well to me it just sounds like an excuse to "offshore" call centers, manufacturing etc. and to automate other jobs like cashiers. Not to mention the potentially devastating loss in purchase power of people on disability or social security retirement.

  2. Free college, another fantastic sounding idea right?. You are just going to turn a 4 year college degree which has questionable value into a high school diploma. Not to mention 4 year college would become nothing but a babysitting service like high school is. What's even worse is he thinks he can easily pay for it, his math is questionable at best and ignores that tuition would skyrocket because of it.

Edit: I guess the point I'm trying to make is when you promise unrealistic things for the sole purpose of winning votes its not representing the best interest of your constituents its pandering to them.

Lol get out of here. There is currently one presidential candidate who has been consistent in his message his entire life, and his name is Bernie Sanders.

Come on Sanders supporters. I know that you're all lunatics, but making things up that are blatantly false doesn't help you gain support for this nut.

I know dude, I never change my mind on anything, because like you I am always right...

I'm not though, people can change their stances; what you have to look out for is people that have no stance, that change their stance accordning to what they think their audience will like ratter than accordning to their own convictions.

To be fair, excise taxes fund a lot of the government. In the era before prohibition government was funded entirely by it. Pulling pot out of the dark alleyways and into the regulated world of alcohol and tobacco not only opens up new taxes, but it lessens the impact of organized crime, and keeps people out of jail. There has been some research that weed could have some effect against cancer too, so legalization would help move these studies forward. So what if it's popular. The reason it is so popular is because it is good policy. Now that Sanders is out in front of this, in one month Hillary Clinton will support a milder form of legalization and some GOP candidates will stake a claim as well based on their "small government" platform.

I think you're misunderstanding me. I am all for legalization for the reasonings of debt issues and lowering prison and law enforcement drain. What I am referring to is the sanders supports who actually believe he is the first to support legalization.
