  1. Knocked it out of the park Bernie! You have my full support.

  2. Bolshevik Bernie is washed up. It's just that his puppets don't realize it yet… Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-MA) has overtaken Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT) for second place in the race for the 2020 Democrat nomination, according to a poll released Wednesday.

    The poll, conducted by The Economist and YouGov, shows Warren (16 percent) edging out Sanders (12 percent) for second place when respondents were asked whom they would vote for if their state’s Democrat primary or caucus were to be held today. Former Vice President Joe Biden, the current frontrunner, led the pack in first place with 26 percent

  3. This speech about made me cry at times. I stand with you Bernie!!!!!!!!!!!!

  4. This man will do something that US presidents should have done decades ago… he will direct the US spending from the foreign policy (that mostly used to destroy other nations and only benefits the oil and weapons corps ) to the domestic spending in education and to fight poverty… YOU MUST ELECT a man like him.. it's time for US citizens to awake you have the most powerful country you should stop a small group of ignorant voters from bringing a fool like Trump to another term.. The US is a great and wealthy country but your government spend your tax money in wars for the interest of oil and weapons corps…. STOP this you will see how great your country is..

  5. Bernie… One question. Why now? You have been in government since 1991 so why is it tacking you this much time to propose changes to help the lower wage earners? Tell me WHY…

    Ask the same question on everyone running for President, including Trump.

  6. The DNC, the 1% owned left media and Wall Street have one goal stop the only person that WILL end GREED running America.. its Bernie time! 100% true people champion.

  7. I wouldn’t think we should have a socialist country because yes you do have free healthcare and education but you want everything equal right?? Well if everything is equal well say before socialism you are a doctor and you treat like 15 patients a day and you get more money then a person that treats lets say 5 people, when socialism happens since everyone is getting the same amount of money then the person that is treating 15 people are now treating 5 people cause everyone gains around the same money, so then since your working and getting the same as a lazy person then you wouldn’t wanna work anymore and soon enough everyone will be lazy and will be living off of food stamps. That’s my opinion on this.

  8. Bernie 2020 all the way

  9. Epic speech, laying out a strategy to complete the unfinished work of FDR’s New Deal. Bernie’s never been more overtly progressive, or more presidential.

  10. You Bernie Fans do know he owns 3 homes and was paid off by the Clinton campaign?

  11. what a saccharin jerk this gold-digger is. phoney-sweet, will eventually cripple you *barf*

  12. As a Jew I find this man repulsive. He spent his honeymoon in Moscow. He is a Soviet and needs to be brought up on treason charges. All commies need to die for treason. This commie is the enemy to the Constitution he he swore to uphold it. He is a commie and needs to be tried for treason

  13. We NEED Bernie!!!! Not Biden

  14. He’s fake! He’s for gorge soros

  15. Around the European Globe of The World "Feel The Bern", And it's "Contagious", But a good sensation one at that.

  16. Bernie is an idiot, he will say whatever you want him to.

  17. Bernie Sanders is trying to "Avenge" of what FDR was trying to complete, Bernie Sanders want's to continue to further FDR pursuit.

  18. If Bernie Sanders becomes President by 2020 I truly hope by the Grace of God in Jesus Christ, He said that he would create a modern day 21th Century Bill of Rights bill, But from a economic view for all average americans, In response to say that he will be trying to bring back into "Redemption" of the Bill of Rights of what Franklin D. Roosevelt was trying to pass in order to complete, Before his death.

  19. 👏💞 Bernie IS the man !!

  20. "Oligarche"… Next this old pink is going to star ranting about the "proletariat and the bourgeoisie."

  21. Where is the CNN coverage? They jump up and down to coverage Biden, but never cover Bernie.

  22. Why the dark tint USA Today? Not needed and for sure is not what it looked like on other cameras directly by you. Cut the crap anyone with a brain sees the corporate media for what it is and the constant games and little bit of BS you do to hurt progressive candidates is just annoying at this point.

  23. I'm glad our country has wealthy people. They do not hurt me at all, in fact, these are the folks that create businesses and provide jobs. It's who we are in capitalist America. Socialists should move to Venezuela.

  24. Reminds me of Venezuela

  25. Democrats choose to believe lies. Socialism is Cuba and Venezuela, the Northern European countries are not socialist but rather free market nanny states.

  26. The most important speech of the 21st century to date. The oligarchs are going to the dustbin of history.

  27. Biden is the successor of Obama Administration. His Brain is programmed for Obama Era. During the time of President Obama, my health insurance premium went up by 15%. This is mainly to subsidize Obamacare. As a middle class, did my life or earnings changed? Absolutely not!!! I instead i lost my sleep over the bills. What did Obama do for private student loan? Nothing!!! Does Biden have anything new in his campaign? I love Bernie…point Blank. Joe Biden is sponsored by the pharmaceutical industries so that medicare for all cannot come into play. Because of Joe Biden, votes for democrats will be divided. Even though i am a registered Democrat, i wont vote for Joe Biden. So Trump will come again for sure!!! Biden is no different than Hillary. Same game over and over.
