I love how Bernie wants everyone to live a socialist life yet he has three houses and is a millionaire - what is stopping him from opening the doors of his homes to homeless or the less fortunate - he can even continually add names to the deeds so that everyone owns the homes, not just him

He could also voluntarily give the government almost all his money for redistribution

He talks the talk but doesn't walk the walk

My answer: I am not proposing any of the socialist policies Bernie is)

Heís the typical socialist lib. Demands you pay more and live with less but greedy and selfish with his own money.

I wonder if he will promise to work for free like Trump?

This is such a nonsense talking point.

How much has the Secret Service had to pay into Trump properties when Donny stays at one?

Oh yeah, the administration is blocking that information from being released.

Forget Trump entirely, Sanders has been a 40yr politician currently making ~$170k a year and recently sold a book for a million dollars, not to mention a few pensions from previous government work. Add that to his "many houses", (in affluent suburbs, no less) and dude is worth...***drum roll***... less than three million dollars. You know, exactly what one would (and I daresay SHOULD) expect from a lifelong civil servant.

Thanks for the highlight, ace. Doin' the Lord's work.
Be bold and risk defeat, or be cautious and encourage it.

It would take 33 years of Trump donating his salary to pay for his golf trips to Florida. And those are just the expenses we know about. Remember golf? The thing he said he wouldn't play if he won? The thing him and people like you criticized Obama for when he played golf DOWN THE STREET from the white house?

Trump working for free....MUAAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!

It's Friday. Thanks for the laugh.

Doomberg stood there at the debate
with either a deer in the headlights
look, or a smirk on his face. His bid
for the WH might have ended that
night.

If you take a risk, you may lose. If you never take a risk, you will always lose.

Has nothing to do with it. Obama bragged how rich he was yet didnít work for free. You can be sure no lib will promise to give their salary back.

Not necessarily. I can see Steyer or Bloomberg or even Warren making the same gesture Trump did. It is really irrelevant. The day after you are President you can have a book deal in the 10ís of millions. And speaking engagements for hundreds of thousands per, if not millions.

I do think Sanders has an optics issue owning 3 houses. I think his wife has been involved in some shady things, and will come under the microscope if Bernie gets the Democrat nod. I think Buttigieg has the least in his closet to be afraid of, except Chasten who is of course out of the closet.

Isnít it sad that 3 of the candidates (Trump, Steyer, Bloomberg) are billionaires? And Trump, Bloomberg, Biden, Sanders, Warren are all old?

Question for the forum.... if Bloomberg gets destroyed on Super Tuesday, and has to drop out, does he use his money to help another Democrat? If he had to endorse one of the 5 remaining, who does he endorse?
