If you didn't feel the Bern in 2016, here's your second chance to catch it.

He's also really fucking old. He'll probably die of a gunshot wound to the back of the head heart attack if he becomes president.
You just made my list, buddy.  >:(

Trump is 72.  Sanders is 77.


And if Trump ain't dead from all the fast food....

Trump's health is presidential. He is the healthiest person to ever be in office. Believe me.

Also, who cares how old Bernie is? If he dies, Ben & Jerry's will just replace him with their next candidate. Most people won't even notice

I unironically donated to a political candidate for the first time ever. 

It's time...

Yeah, good luck with that donation...

In 2018, the DNC said the rules require:

"The Democratic National Committee (DNC) adopted a new rule on Friday aimed at keeping outsider candidates like Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) from trying to clinch the Democratic presidential nomination in 2020."

Please note the capital "I" following Bernie's name...

This will fly like the proverbial lead balloon...

LMMFAO!

Maybe I'm missing something obvious, but how is this incredibly lenient rule going to stop Bernie from running?

Abandon hope all ye who press enter here.

Science is what happens when preconception meets verification.

If you can't demonstrate it, then you shouldn't believe it.

Jesus was about left leaning hippy as you get yet he is loved more by the religious right.  Go figure.

Jesus stopped being Jewish the moment he claimed to be the son of God. Judaism is a religion that, by its very nature, requires its followers to not believe they're God.

Jesus also was busy changing the world in his 30s while Bernie has managed to make it to his 70s having done nothing at all.

Jews are the reason Jesus was crucified. Modern Jews have rejected the messiah and are damned for eternity if they do not repent.

Name a bill Bernie has authored and what kind of impact it has had on America.

What on earth does that have to do with your previous claim? Unless that is really what you meant by it and just didn't say so. If so, that bit about Jesus in his 30s doesn't make much sense.

I'd be happy to go down this road with you. But you should probably first start by clarifying what you actually meant, and then substantiating that claim (or at least substantiate the claim you made, which I quoted). That would be far more productive than whatever you are trying to do here.

Good God. Why is American politics full of geriatrics? Pelosi, Trump, Sanders. Why don't these fossils retire?

Why do I need to clarify? I claimed Bernie has done practically nothing at all during his entire career in politics, then asked for a bill he authored. I figured that was a pretty straight forward request.

I guess this is Rushy clarifying he meant politics, since its the first time this thread he has used that word.  Or the word career for that matter.

Because you made a rather generalized and sweeping statement.

You literally did no such thing. I would suggest going back and reading what you wrote.

...then asked for a bill he authored.
Which I think is a valid topic of discussion. You should have said that instead of saying something else and then pretending like everyone should have automatically understood what you meant. What is more likely is that you just wanted a sick bern (lmao), and are now trying to add context to where there was none before.

I figured that was a pretty straight forward request.
Excellent... So how does that relate to you comparing him to Jesus in his 30s under the same context? Did Jesus author some great legislation prior to his death that Bernard just won't ever be able to compare to?
