Bernie Sanders ✨ Surges in Latest Polls

By Jon Queally  — New findings indicate that the Vermont senator has pulled ahead in New Hampshire and is closing the gap between him and Joe Biden nationally. ... ...

Notably, as CNN points out, Sanders enjoys the trust of most voters when it comes to the key issues of the climate crisis and healthcare:
Quote
On health care, 28% say Sanders—an advocate of “Medicare for All” and the elimination of private health insurance—would best handle the issue. That’s about even with the 26% who choose Biden, who has argued against moving to a completely government-run system. Another 19% say they prefer Warren’s approach, which ultimately results in government health coverage for all, while 7% choose Buttigieg, and no other candidate has the backing of more than 3% on the issue.

Sanders leads the way more clearly on handling the climate crisis: 27% favor his approach, followed by 21% who prefer Biden and 15% Warren.

Of course Bernie is surging--checkout is campaign rallies on YouTube (since they never appear on mainstream media news) you'll always see thousands showing up passionately in support of Bernie's platform. It's really a diverse group of supporters it's NOT just the young. The audience is packed with college kids, millennials, baby boomers, and minorities. Working-class people of all ages want real change. Bernie's platform focuses on critical economic issues tormenting millions in the US: healthcare, affordable housing, student debt, medical debt, climate change, prison reform, and political corruption, etc...

Eighty percent of Americans are living paycheck to paycheck most don't have $400.00 to pay for an unexpected emergency and 87 million lack adequate access to healthcare. The government can keep pissing away money on more needless wars or millions can organize in a grassroots movement and demand that tax dollars being stolen by war profiteers should be reallocated to the rebuilding of the US infrastructure. Bernie 20/20

The record stock prices touted by Trump are, in fact, a measure of the increased economic exploitation that has produced the fall in life expectancy among workers."

For decades enormous wealth has been transferred to a tiny percentage of the US population. It's a simple equation-- owners and investors profit through worker exploitation. In other words, one person gains through another person's losses. That's really what the stock market represents. High dividends means LOW wages for the working-class. To accelerate profits industries must eliminate jobs, suppress wage growth, robotize manufacturing plants, or find wage slaves in other countries.

"Real average wages in the US (that is, the wage after accounting for inflation) has about the same purchasing power it did 40 years ago. And what wage gains there have been have mostly flowed to the highest-paid tier of workers."

Towns that were once thriving communities look like an apocalypse movie set. This is especially the case for deindustrialized towns in the midwest like Ohio and Pennsylvania as well as parts of the south like
West Virginia, Alabama, Kentucky, Maryland, Mississippi, and Tennessee. While the "affluent" coastal states are inundated with thousands of homeless. If the homeless are lucky they're sleeping in their cars rather than in cardboard crates or a tattered tents. Their cars have become their "official residence." They sleep in their car and then drive to a full-time low-paying job and then drive back to their "homeless community parking-lot."

Three people own more wealth than the bottom 50% of the entire US population. "The three richest individuals—Bill Gates, Warren Buffett and Jeff Bezos—collectively hold more wealth than the bottom 50% of the domestic population, a total of 160 million people or 63 million American households. Roughly a fifth of Americans have ZERO or negative net worth."

Warren Buffett, takes great pleasure in f--king over the poor. His company Clayton Homes operates the two biggest mobile home lenders, 21st Mortgage Corporation along with Vanderbilt Mortgage. Clayton finances more mobile home loans than any other lender by a factor of more than seven. CultureBanx noted that in 2105, 72% of black borrowers got their loans from Clayton’s Vanderbilt Mortgage and 21st Mortgage. To put it simply Buffett capitalizes on trailer debt. Once the unsuspecting desperate poor get sucked into these loans their indebted for the rest of their lives.

It should be noted, Invitation Homes owned by the Blackstone Group is even more predatory than Buffett's enterprise they've thrown millions out of their homes. If you have a chance read "Homewreckers" by Glantz. Oh, by the way the Blackstone Group posted a profit of $779.4 million, or $1.15 a share, compared with $442.7 million, or 64 cents a share, in the same period a year earlier. The value of Blackstone's main private-equity portfolio rose by 2.6% sequentially during the quarter.

Psychopathic Anthony H. Cordesman of the Washington think tank Center for Strategic and International Studies has the audacity to say that: "The US does not face any foreign threat as serious as its failure to come to grips with… the rise in the cost of federal entitlement spending.”

I would say, the greatest threat to the US is its hyper-militarism compounded by its political corruption inevitably leading to its own SELF-DESTRUCTION.
