Posted on 09/01/2018 6:22:31 AM PDT by Libloather
Levi Sanders, son of Sen. Bernie Sanders (I., Vt.), said that if he's elected to Congress he won't support House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D., Calif.) keeping her top spot in the Democratic Party.
The younger Sanders is running for the Democratic nomination in New Hampshire's 1st Congressional District where, like his father, he supports far-left proposals, including Medicare for all and free public college.
Sanders announced that instead of supporting Pelosi he would support Rep. Barabara Lee (D., Calif.) for the top spot among House Democrats, CBS News reports. Lee, who was co-chair of the Congressional Progressive Caucus from 2005 to 2009, is considered a staunch progressive and announced her candidacy for Pelosi's spot in July.

Why Doesn’t he support Pelosi. Isn’t she far enough left for him?
Give the kid a break, he's just getting started. /S
That limp wrist “not fall far from the tree” moron will say whatever silly thing needs to be said to be elected. He will change positions in a heartbeat, just like a certain McButthead (may he rest in excrement).
I’m glad that he announced he’s supporting Lee. At least he has the balls to saw who he’s supporting. But I would prefer that he support Maxine.
Barbara Lee is an unapologetic Marxist. It is about time we started calling these so-called Socialists what they are. For that matter, you cannot take Marx from Socialism.
I’m surprised that young Levi doesn’t want to pack up and move to somewhere more to his political likings, such as North Korea or Cuba or Vietnam or Laos.
Don’t worry Little Nikita you won’t have to make that choice.
He looks like a bigger goof ball than his Dad.
Leeching from the taxpayer seems to be the family business for the Sanders. I wish the Founding Fathers had thought to make five years of experience as a business owner or wage earner in private industry a mandatory requirement for Congressional office holders - we would have a better Congress, with fewer taxpayer parasites like Obama and Bernie Sanders. These people have never done anything in their adult lives except find ways to consume taxpayer dollars.
Misguided, low-information Democratic and RINO federal politicians dont seem to understand that the states have never expressly constitutionally delegated to the feds the specific powers to regulate, tax and spend for things like Medicare and free public college.
Things like Medicare and free public college need to be established by the individual states, depending on what the citizens of a given state want.
Congress is not empowered to tax for those purposes which are within the exclusive province of the States. Justice John Marshall, Gibbons v. Ogden, 1824.
"State inspection laws, health laws, and laws for regulating the internal commerce of a State, and those which respect turnpike roads, ferries, &c. are not within the power granted to Congress [emphases added]." Gibbons v. Ogden, 1824.
"... the care of the property, the liberty, and the life of the citizen, under the solemn sanction of an oath imposed by your Federal Constitution, is in the States, and not in the Federal Government [emphasis added]." Rep. John Bingham, Congressional Globe (See middle of third column.)
From the accepted doctrine that the United States is a government of delegated powers, it follows that those not expressly granted, or reasonably to be implied from such as are conferred, are reserved to the states, or to the people. To forestall any suggestion to the contrary, the Tenth Amendment was adopted. The same proposition, otherwise stated, is that powers not granted are prohibited [emphasis added]. United States v. Butler, 1936.
This is why patriots need to support Pres. Trump in the 2018 midterm elections by electing new state sovereignty-respecting patriot lawmakers to Congress who will work with Trump in surrendering state powers that the corrupt, post-17th Amendment ratification feds have stolen from the states back to the states.
Bernie Sanders raised a misogynist.
Another dynasty idiot
Another elitist democrat dynasty/ruling family member.

As you can see from The Green Pages info, he is not winning the money race on the dem side.
There are six Republicans and two Libertarains. The primary is Sept 11. There are two indepedents but they have not filed with the fec.
Barbara Lee gave him more money and promised a better job in the Congress, if they win.
We gotta make sure that the Democrats DON’T WIN!
