This week's Tele-Talk question was: If you were one of those who saw Bernie Sanders at the North Conway Community Center, what did you think of him? Responses are as follows:
Bernie Sanders, the one thing that I can say about that man is he's totally honest. You know that he is for socialism, just like Obama and Hillary are, and he'll admit it. But, my God, he is so wrong with that. Look all around the rest of the world. Those places are going down the toilet, and everybody knows the problem in this country is people need to get off your lazy butts and work. I'm sick of taking care of people all the time. You know they came up with this great thing years ago, it's called work. Get out and do it; the government shouldn't have to take care you. Keep popping babies out, doing drugs. I'm sorry, it's not my fault. It's called personal responsibility.
I completely have decided now I feel the Bern. I was very impressed with his humility, his intelligence and concern and multiple ideas presented about so many areas that are broken in this country. And people that suggest, "oh he's too socialist." There are already things in this country that are socialist, and people should do some research and also know the term "democratic socialism." He has got lot of integrity. He's a man of his word, and he knows his stuff. Anything less at this point would be just a complete disgrace to vote otherwise. He has definitely got a lot of younger people and all different age groups pumped up. He is the man for the job. He is leading the way in Vermont with GMO labeling being mandatory. And the rest of the country should be appalled that we're not doing all that as a country. He speaks volumes to a lot of people. He is an extremely intelligent man and I am inspired, and I couldn't support a better person for the job. Donald Trump and Sarah Palin are like a stand-up "Saturday Night Live" show. People who are pushing for them should really check themselves. Scary times with clowns like that that want to represent our country.
I went yesterday just to see Bernie, and I was very impressed with everything he had to say. I live in Bartlett, and I will be voting for him.
Bernie Sanders is a person who represents the true values of America. He stands for the restoration of the middle class. He refuses to be bought like other politicians. Sample: state reps like Karen Umberger and Frank McCarthy who voted against their constituents' wishes to support a constitutional amendment to halt the influence of big money on politics. Bernie Sanders cannot be bought. He wants to eliminate the greed of private insurance that preys upon our health care.
Is it true that if he wins, Bernie will plant trees that will sprout money with which he will pay for all the things he promises?
Saw him today. Well spoken, articulate, to the point, honest and my next president!
I don't live in North Conway anymore, but I love him.
My co-workers and I conspired ways to get there, but none of them were feasible.
It was great to see such support for Bernie. He is the one candidate that will improve the lives of the middle class and everyone. The wealthy business folks who do not pay their share of taxes should be ashamed. Get out on primary day and vote for Bernie. He has the plan for this country that all others are lacking. It takes a village to make improvements for the middle class. Let's not let the 1 percent run this wonderful country. Barbara, Center Conway.
After watching and listening to Bernie Sanders Friday morning, I've come to the conclusion he is a brilliant practioner of the politics of class envy. As usual, the Democrat electorate ,which has IQ somewhere between dirt and lint, ate it all up, Bernie Sanders, who looks like Dr. Emmett Brown from "Back to the Future," believes in a far worse ideology. As mayor of Burlington, Vt., he had a Russian communist flag behind his desk. He called the city The People's Republic of Burlington. Bernie spent his honeymoon in Moscow and was great friends with the Ortega brothers who were the communist rulers of Nicaragua. Bernie said President Ronald Reagan was a terrorist. Bernie may call himself a progressive socialist, but he is actually a communist. He is a believer in an ideology that is directly responsible for the deaths of close to 200 million human beings! If Bernie is elected, he will be a fitting successor to Barack Obama, the most incompetent and anti-American president in American history.
Bernie Sanders comes off as honest and sincere. While Hillary may say the same things as Bernie says, she comes off as too well-scripted and insincere.
Bernie Sanders is a rare politician. He speaks the honest truth about what has happened in our country as the wealth and power has shifted upwards to the wealthy and powerful , turning our democracy into a plutocracy. It seems the Republicans, with their only priority being money, have won and ruined so much of what we used to have, and if someone doesn't stop them now it will be too late. Bernie represents our one chance to bring democracy back to the people and give us a true and expanded middle class again. We are being destroyed by private health care costs (insurance, drugs, hospitals). With a public health care system for all (as a right) we would save thousands of dollars individually. Publicly funded college would save thousands more dollars. The tax increases he proposes would be a drop in the bucket compared to the personal savings from the elimination of private insurance and college costs. Alan Phenix from Chocorua.
His nickname is Sandy because he's abrasive. Get it? Hee hee!
