Well, here's some news:
According to Jeff Weaver, 2016 campaign manager for Bernie Sanders, the Vermont senator "is considering another run for the presidency."
The silver lining of that: it's a potential "teaching moment."
The entirety of Bernie's political philosophy, if we can call it that, is: "We want X; therefore, the state should violently distribute X."
And if you oppose this juvenile ideology, you "hate the poor."
Even though every last thing Bernie favors would make the poor less employable and give them fewer options.
