A bit of an expanded version of what Sanders said (and I agree with):

As a guy who never had a job and is pontificating from his 3rd home, I bet he really is in tune with the working class.

The Democratic party isn't just failing to connect with the white working class, it wants to stamp it out of existence.

That, and Christianity too.

if you actually knew your bible youd be aware that exodus could not be referring to jesus here

As someone from Vermont: Yes, he is. I have seen it myself how he was discussing politics with random travelers in the Burlington airport plus the guy at the food stand. And that was a few years back; way before his nomination campaign. Btw. No detail (assistant, bodyguard etc) whatsoever.

Here is an article how he ran his senate campaign (which was not that different from his usual approach in connecting with voters): https://www.thenation.com/article/how-does-bernie-sanders-do... Just two paragraphs from the article:
Quote:
 So Sanders took the money he raised for his re-election campaign and put it into an energetic door-knocking project that began long before other candidates were running TV ads. The point wasn’t to build name recognition; through forty years of losing and then winning elections, Sanders has been to virtually every town in the state. At the roughly 20,000 doors knocked on by the legions of Sanders volunteers during this campaign, the “ask” was for a lot more than votes. Vermonters were urged to come out and spend a few hours—yes, a few hours—with Sanders at their town halls. “We’ve organized meetings in towns of 300, and more than 100 people show up. They stay into the evening, talking about saving post offices and getting people dental care and bringing troops home from Afghanistan.” ....

Personal Democracy Media co-founder and editorial director Micah Sifry, who has followed Sanders and Vermont politics for years, recalls: “Visiting hunting lodges to talk about protecting natural resources for hunting and fishing and establishing a connection with [hunters] was one of the ways that Sanders managed to earn the trust of the predominantly conservative and working-class Northeast Kingdom section of Vermont, which regularly gives Sanders, a self-declared socialist, its hearty support.”

Not made in America?

Once Trump makes America great again, buying Taiwanese wallets will be so onerous due to protectionism that your wallet will be made in America and cost $300*. But it will have a picture of sweet eagle on it.

*Unless America is really great and we get rid of those pesky child labor laws, back when America was REALLY great

Leviticus 25:14, "If you make a sale, moreover, to your friend or buy from your friend's hand, you shall not wrong one another." How did God know that our friends would only be American? Mysterious ways!

1. That refers to swearing falsely in court by a Divine Name.
2. No human being, even J-boy, is G-d.

They don't connect with the "black working class" either. All they support is gays and women. They connect with corporations that line their pockets and victim politics. The working masses get shafted routinely.
