  1. Progressives for a Democratic Republic

    The Political Revolution is on a mission to defeat the establishment wing of the Democratic Party that no longer represents the people.

    • TELLEMENT2000

      Tax cuts did nothing whatsoever to stimulate the economy?  and your evidence is?  (HINT: all serious economists credit the Trump tax and red tape cuts for the current strong economy.)

    • … Cortez + Old Clown will turn USA to Venezuela ……………. Venezuela politicians were telling the same stories to the poor = now the don’t have money for toilet paper

    • A Johnson

    • Ann Linley

      Tito Tim’s Videos France tried every policy Crazy Eyes Cortez is suggesting and the end result: the middle class taxed into poverty and are rioting in the streets.

  4. Song Master

    I love these two, perfect DNC candidates for President! That will absolutely lock up the election for any Republican, lol

    • Shade Bleu

      King Coyote How many people live in Scandinavia?

    • Shade Bleu

      thosetwodudes Hillary steals election from Bernie.

    • thosetwodudes

      Well no, she did not steal it, the DNC felt like it was her turn. And they should have known that when it’s somebody’s turn, like Ross Perot, John McCain, Mitt Romney, they lose. Plus the whole Russia helping Trump thing hurt her too, right?  But yeah, Bernie would have beaten Trump in 2016, and we’ll see about him in 2020 – I think he’ll win but no sure.

    • At PNguyen

      America having right now a lot of great thinkers & great patriotic lawmakers like Bernie Sanders, Kamala Harris, Elizabeth Warren, Kirsten Gillibrand, Kyrsten Sinema, Stephanie Murphy, Alexandria Ocasio Cortez, Sharice Davids, Tulsi Gabbard, Ilham Omar, Joe Kennedy and more …

    • 2 communist SNAKES sitting side by side.

  5. Sheri Townsend

    Americans aren’t against socialism.  They’re against the Right-wing definition of socialism.  Health care, social security, welfare, medicare,  Medicaid, subsidies,  unemployment benefits,  free school lunches are all socialist type programs. This is what the Republican party is working to cut and eventually do away with.    How is socialism worse than living in a oligarchy?  If  America is not an oligarchy now,  we’ll soon be one.   It’s the oligarchs who rail against socialism.  If Americans understood who truly has the power in this country, they’d understand why.  Americans  better wake up!

    • Fritzie Wusthof

      +Tear n Bump – Regarding the statement “Medicaid, subsidies, unemployment benefits, free school lunches are all socialist type programs,” you answered like this: “None of those things are in the bill of rights. I wonder why? Im against all those things because i know how they get paid for, by redistributing wealth. Too hard to get ahead on your own?”

      How about roads and bridges, Tear & Bump? Are you against them? Can you build those on your own? How about policemen and firemen, who pays for them? Would you rather fight the fires yourself? Carry a gun much? Should all schools be private, and if somebody can’t afford ’em, tough luck? Because all the really GOOD people are already rich? Nobody worth anything ever started out poor? Sure of that? How about Science? I guess it shouldn’t be funded through taxes (“redistributing WEALTH”), according to you. It’s the selfish Ayn Rand school of hard knocks, for you, eh? The lonely road, dog-eat-dog.

    • Willie Pierce

      @Sheri Townsend, I’m right wing, and I’ll define Democratic Socialism for you. It’s COMMUNISM. And you liars won’t admit it.

    • A Johnson

      America is definitely oligarchy with the amount of money in politics by billionaires.

  6. William Schutter

    Bernie, you had the ideas and worked your tail off and Hillary made sure you failed.

    • Buliders OTW

      +Angelina Gia WOW! YOU HAVE ALOT OF “HATE” sounds like maybe you should pack your bags and head for another country maybe the middle of the ocean where you can drown yourself…

    • Fritzie Wusthof

      +Jules198 – Can’t believe 8 people voted your RACIST diatribe up. Anyway, it’s all wrong.

    • Fritzie Wusthof

      +S. Labouisse – You’ve been bamboozled by Alex Jones (and probably Rush Limbaugh and Annnn)

    • Cecil Treadwell

      Hillary stole the primary against Bernie Sanders and got the general election stolen from her.

  7. Robert Blount

    Working people from all ethnicities across America will support her because she is speaking to the authentic struggles of the American citizenry – a living wage, health care without bankruptcy, education without crushing debt. In the wealthiest country in history, no one should be too poor to live. Yet, across all ethnicities, there are way too many working American citizens too poor to live.

    The money to do these things IS ALREADY HERE. And it is our money. It’s called our TAX MONIES, monies that the American citizenry pays into annually. Many have been conditioned to believe that it is not their money. The growing majorities are not fooled by talk of freebies anymore. That guilt trip doesn’t fly. IT IS OUR MONEY because we put it there to be used in a way that is going to benefit us, the American citizenry – not an elite few.

    The problem is that OUR MONEY has been misallocated to favor the top percentile. How did this happen? Our legislators (both parties) are bought by the top percentile. They have legislated the present system into existence. Trump is right. The system is rigged. And he has continued the rigging by stripping away protections (deregulation) every chance he gets.

    We need UNBOUGHT LEGISLATORS TO RE-ALLOCATE THE TAX MONIES THAT THE AMERICAN PEOPLE PUT THERE to address the authentic economic struggles of the American citizenry!!!

    • trell0123

      What ever.. lol Denmark, Norway, Finland, Sweden .. You do more research sir..

    • Sith Lord Reign

      No we won’t, only the unaware working class support these uneducated fake illogical political promises.

    • Sith Lord Reign

      Vote for me here’s a bunch of free stuff‼️ Sad that most can’t see there simple ploy.

    • … Cortez + Old Clown will turn USA to Venezuela ……………. Venezuela politicians were telling the same stories to the poor = now the don’t have money for toilet paper

  8. Aubrey

    I LOVE Bernie! And I love Alexandria! I feel so excited about these two candidates!

    • Magnus Andersson

      +Carlos Dominguez “Once again” ^^ You my friend are grasping at straws, do you really think you can get at me with your ridiculous assumptions, are you projecting here? Poor Carlos, you are obviously not a snowflake, far right dont have any of those, so stay strong, tough guy!

    • Carlos Dominguez

      +Magnus Andersson Look who pretends to be all high and mighty, when he was the one to immediately resort to name calling with nothing of substance. The hypocrisy is just laughable.

    • Magnus Andersson

      Carlos Dominguez, are we projecting again Carlos? Name calling? You mean troll? I bet you heard worse from your mother, am in right?

    • you’ve showed enough stupidity! go crawl back to your safe space.

    • Just some guy

      Your an idiot lol Go give all your money away. I’ll keep what I earn thank you.

  9. Bernieeeeeeeeee 👈❤️❤️❤️❤️

    Alexandriaaaaaaaaa 👈❤️❤️❤️❤️

    • Rick McGrath

      Sounds like you don’t have a job.

    • Brovahkiin

      +Karl Ryan if that means I don’t die because I have an injury, I don’t have to paya quarter million dollars to go to college, and everyone is guaranteed to have a living wage, I would gladly pay 40-50% on part of my wage (if I would be in the upper middle class, where that tax rate would be).

      Especially because you already give 35% to pay for tax cuts and military spending that is not needed

    • Karl Ryan

      +Brovahkiin Good for you.

    • Brovahkiin

      +Karl Ryan good for anyone that’s can’t a afford a ride in an ambulance. Good for anyone that can’t go to a normal college because they don’t have the money. Good for anyone whose entire existence is threatened because they had a cancer diagnosis, and they won’t be able to work through chemotherapy.

      You don’t like taxes? Good for you, go to Kenya, Albania, Hungary. Or maybe Ukraine? Those pay less taxes, see how they’re doing. (Frankly, most still better than the US)

    • At PNguyen

      Many said – Idiotic fear-mongers made Alexandria Ocasio Cortez A Great Socio-Politico- Humane Americanist – also called A Great Patriot of American Democracy ?… If you (guileless followers) like punning ?

  10. Carmenza Anton

    alexandra praying for you I know that you will win and do great in Congress. So proud of you how can I help How can I send money for your campaign?

    • At PNguyen

      – if you guys want “Politico-Terminology” We will coin new words for “political Idiots”, twice to remember, not Words created us (mankind) – We might name Alexandria Ocasio Cortez a Socio-Capito-Humane Americanist – God loves Cortez – She is one of the greatest patriotic lawmakers who always work for public interests, for 99 % of the American people…

    • At PNguyen

      Broken Government – Author John W. Dean, Legal Adviser of the Republican President Richard Nixon …The Republican agenda has proven itself to be an agenda of special interests rather than of the public interests, the scheme of a party whose primary aim is to maintain its power whatever the cost … Washington Post remarked, “At its core, the book argues that the growing power of social and neo-conservatives within the Republican Party has created an army of guileless followers…”

    • At PNguyen

      November 6th 2018, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez to be youngest woman ever elected to Congress… She became one of the greatest Idols of American politics (GWO) – Dem Cortez won 78% of votes – GOP Pappas just got 13.8 % of votes

    • Delta Dawn

      You’re gonna send that tranny your hard earned money? Foolish!!

    • The blind ignorant sheeple being led to the slaughter…

  11. wayne montgomery

    she will win on her message… but to not take corporate money/ wallstreet money is a strong case to vote in most anybody …. we must get money out of politics and change election finance laws back to the population … corporations are not people ……

  12. Victor Santana

    Alexandria and Bernie are the kind of minds that our country needs so desperately, It’s not only about political parties, it’s about the strength and the future of the people and the working class.

    • Fritzie Wusthof

      +Abominable Snowman – Ever hear of taxes? That’s how we finance certain social needs in America. It’s also how we finance WAR. It’s a matter of priorities.

    • Abominable Snowman

      Fritzie Wusthof How much do you expect everyone to pony up for these programs? I don’t think the economy can sustain the amount that’s been bandied about by various news agencies financial experts.

    • Aubrey T. Copeland

      You do realize that AOC is dumb as a rock, right?

    • .. THE DUMMIES THINK SHE WILL TAKE FROM RICH AND GIVE TO POOR ……. CAN YOU SEE HOW THE PEOPLE ARE STUPID and NAIVE?

  13. Nogui Aramburo

    Sanders / Ocasio-Cortez 2020

    • marc griffith

      Nogui = proof Americans are as dumb as the rest of the world thinks

    • rcisneros310

      She would sink any chance Bernie had. Did you see her accuse Shapiro of sexism (catcalling) because he offered to debate her? That kind of attitude IS drowning the democratic party and will continue to do so. She is kryptonite. Hilary ran on sexist nonsense (vote for me cuz I’m a woman) and it didnt work. It wont work for Cortez either. It’s gotta be about personal merit. Not sex, race, religion, etc.

    • 118Columbus

      Nogui Aramburo he was born in Poland and she was born in the Dominican Republic. Neither is eligible to be President.

    • Anna42132

      Hahahahahahahaha that’s a joke!

    • Ann Linley

      Nogui Aramburo You have to be 35 years old to be president.

  14. Horny Fruit Flies

    If I had one request, it would be that you stop calling yourselves socialists or democratic socialists. You are not socialists. You are social democrats. Actual socialists want to abolish capitalism, which you don’t want to do.

    • Shawn Mercado

      It was the right who rebranded social democrats as socialists and communists. People I think used to try to say “I’m not a socialist I just want X and Y” but eventually they gave up and just owned the label since it was going to be put on them anyway.

    • Fritzie Wusthof

      +Carlos Dominguez – Who told you that? Do you think they are “honest?” That’s an old character trait that died out recently in some circles.

    • Carlos Dominguez

      +Charisma Fries Please enlighten me, lefty.

    • +Jacob Fisher Unfortunate how people are so willing to voice strong opinions without doing some basic research, isn’t it?

    • Liquid Tension2

      Hes said in the past that he thinks of socialism as more of an ideology.

  15. Ivan Shivolski

    Burnie was black balled by the DNC. No one has cheated the voters more then the democrats.

    • Didn’t a whole congressional race in NC get recalled because the GOP is corrupt?

    • Rikane Jose

      +Ivan Shivolski You are so dumb. Go back to school you idiot.

    • … Cortez + Old Clown will turn USA to Venezuela ……………. Venezuela politicians were telling the same stories to the poor = now the don’t have money for toilet paper

    • Katie K.

      @Zr M didn’t socialists inform you yet. It’s somehow America’s fault.

    • Intelligence? Bahaaa!

    • Fritzie Wusthof

      +Ivan Garcia – you must have missed it

    • Ivan Garcia

      Fritzie Wusthof Maybe…Some people are dumb enough to assume AOC is smart but, I still have some faith that
      people still carry rationality. Makes me uncertain, hence why I said “I hope” because, I’m unsure. Plus, this is old news. Beyond me why you think this is relevant

  18. phatty ofurniture

    Ban low IQ cortez!

    • +Rick McGrath lmao ok, you dont know how unemployment rates work, gotcha

    • +Tony Roman im smart enough to know that radical left wing socialist policies don’t work

    I am sure Bernie knows the US is also guilty of interference in other countries elections.

  20. Magnus Andersson

    Cant tell if the comment section is full of bots or if people are so out of touch of reality.
    The amount of misinformation people/bots are trying to push is mind boggling, but I wouldn’t be surprised if some actually believes the crap they say.
