    Wow. If he isn't good enough, should you not consider moving to another country ?

    There is no chance that a US Senator from any of our 50 states is going to be more progressive than Senator Bernie Sanders. Just zero chance that this will happen any time soon.

    If this position does not make a person a "purity troll", then I have no idea what possibly could.

      What are you, groupthink enforcement patrol? I'm a huge fan of Senator Saunders but what is wrong with asking him pertinent questions on the issue? The comment you are responding to wasn't impolite. He asked the Senator a question, as is his right as an American citizen. And the Senator posted on DailyKos, which last time I remember had a comments section - not a blind adulation section.

      I must have misunderstood what "crashing the gates" meant.

        elsewhere in the diary.  He seems to think that someone appointed him as the spokesperson for Bernie Sanders because he's answering comments that are directed specifically toward the Senator and basically trying to pick fights.

          Perhaps Vote4Obamain2012 is suffering from withdrawal because he/she can't change their name to Vote4Obamain2016?  

          I admire Senator Sanders, and Congressman Ellison who wrote a diary about a week ago.  But, frankly,  I'm a little bit tired of being told what WE the voters have to do when WE just did our job 2 months ago.  WE were very clear as to where we stand on the issues.  

          But I digress.  

          I'm tired of being told what has to be done in Washington when it is the progressive politicians who enable this centrist White House.  

          I'm tired of talk from progressive politicians who preach the right thing to do and then vote with this president.  

          When do they say "no"?  

          When do they stand up to this president?  

          When do these progressive politicians start listening to us instead of preaching to us?  

          When do they look in the mirror and understand they and their votes are the problem?
