All of you imbeciles who don't agree with Bernie Sanders may as well go drink bleach since you seem to prefer electing your inevitable demise over electing a candidate who actually cares about this country, wants to restore it to prosperity and has solid, proven solutions on how to do so. Trickle down economics do not work, have never worked and have ruined our economy; the Republicans want to eliminate social security, medicare, medicaid, the VA, the EPA, the concept of minimum wage and give more tax breaks to large corporations who already pay close to nothing in taxes as it stands. What the hell is wrong with some of you? stop supporting politicians who don't care about you and have no interest in anything other than feeding their greed by accepting bribes from big companies and the wealthy. Don't vote for sell outs!

Elizabeth Warren needs to endorse Bernie Sanders already. They obviously have the same political views. It's the obvious thing to do.
