I'm thinking the guys running around in Oregon thinking they are a "well armed Militia" aren't all that well armed - and picked a harmless time of the year to get some media publicity...   
If the media ignored them like the Feds... they'd all go away.   It's cold an snowy

We'll see what happens. He raised over $70M so far and that amount doesn't have any PAC money in it. He also had more than 2 million individual donors.

Iowa will be the big test and it's less than a month away.

Gee if Trump had ordered the roundup of all homeless people because it was cold outside you'd hear the media jumping all over him...

=====================================================
Gov. Andrew Cuomo has directed local governments to get homeless people out of the winter cold by will or, if necessary, by force.
The governor signed an executive order Sunday requiring municipalities statewide to get the homeless into shelters when the temperature (including wind chill temperature) drops to 32 degrees or below. If a homeless person refuses to go to a shelter, the order authorizes police to take them off the streets involuntarily.
The order, which takes effect Tuesday, also requires shelters to extend their hours so they remain open at all times when the mercury drops below freezing.

So, you have 2 candidates, one a Democrat and one a Republican and neither have influencing PAC or special interest money to sway their opinion...  But then Bernie is a seasoned legislator, Trump is not....

Every other candidate is behold'in to something or someone....

They Haven’t Been Wrong Since 1975 And They Say Our Next President Will Be…

Even with the lead Secretary of State Hillary Clinton (D-N.Y.) has in the polls, Senator Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) has continued to garner support from small donors at an historical pace not seen in any previous election – even President Obama’s election, which held the previous record.

Could that be why Western Illinois University just gave Sen. Sanders a hell of a holiday gift?

Introducing President Bernie Sanders
Western Illinois University, the only entity that’s predicted every single presidential election with 100 percent accuracy since 1975, just announced that its mock election sent Sen. Sanders and Martin O’Malley (D-Md.) to the White House in 2016 as President and Vice President, respectively.

From Hollywood A-list stars and musicians to millennials, veterans, and even a small-but-growing crop of Republicans with some common sense, supporters #FeelTheBern all over the demographic map. Sen. Sanders is the single “most electable” candidate from either party, even after running a so-called long-shot bid to be nominated as the 2016 Democratic candidate for president.

The university used the same mock election system in 2007 and 2011 to elect and reelect President Obama to the White House, and it’s the same system they’ve used all these years.

From ‘Most Electable’ to President?
According to the latest Quinnipiac Polling data, although Sen. Sanders is still well behind former Sec. Clinton by more than 30 percentage points, he polls better than any of the GOP presidential candidates – including current GOP front runner Donald Trump.

According to Quinnipiac,

“Sanders does just as well, or even better [than Clinton], against top Republicans.”

Sen. Sanders beats Donald Trump (R) by 8 points, Marco Rubio (R-Fla.) by 1 point, Ted Cruz (R-Texas) by 10 points, and Ben Carson (R) by 6 points, according to Quinnipiac.

Sec. Clinton on the other hand beats Trump by 6 points, Sen. Rubio by 1 point, Sen. Cruz by 5 points and Carson by 10 points, according to Quinnipiac.

What’s even more interesting is the WIU’s prior accuracy, despite naysayers in previous elections. The WIU predicted President Obama’s win in 2007, and in 2011, and our current president’s situation was pretty much the same against Clinton in 2007 as Sen. Sanders’ situation is now against Clinton.

President Obama was behind Sec. Clinton at one point by almost the same number of percentage points.

In a December 14 to 16, 2007, poll, Gallup reported that President Obama, then an Illinois Senator, was behind Sec. Clinton by 18 percentage points in a 45 to 27 percent match-up, respectively.

Republicans said he couldn’t win, but the WIU said otherwise, and the university was right. President Obama eventually pulled ahead of Sec. Clinton to gain enough support to earn the primary win, and earn enough of the popular vote to gain the Presidency.

Do you think Trump would work for his own best interest or yours? History shows he works to protect himself, not others.

Is that any different from Bernie, or Hillary, or any other politician running for president?

And the Clinton's worked that into an empire...  of course first they were dead broke (probably paying off Bill's harem)

Bill had other interests besides money when he was in the Whitehouse...  ;)

I'd say Bernie is different. Do you have anything to prove otherwise?

I do think Bernie and Trump have an idea as to how to make America great again.  However Bernie's is let the government take over about everything and tax us all to the poorhouse.
Hillary is only feeding her ego and the Clinton Foundation..

I agree.  We must have been watching the same Fox News segment.  So glad they are around to tell us what to think!
