Who hates us?
(Like I demonstrated before in the video; Bernie is not only a JEW himself
Why does that matter?
but is pro-Israel). I don't want a war; but self-defense must be considered as our priority. Bernie wishes to lessen Military spending.
The idea is to NOT go to war with Israel. Because it is futile. And another war in the Middle East is only going to destabilize the region even more. Aside from the fact that ISIS has arisen during the previous Bush administration, everybody seems eager to forget him and blame Barack Obama. As for the reason for America's support of Israel, there are a number of factors. First and foremost, it is to protect Israel as "a legal nation on legally acquired territory
surrounded by other nations committed to its destruction". But it is also more than that. Supporting Israel is an effort to promote peace, internationalism, human rights, progress, and also to fight injustice. Antisemitism is disturbingly popular right now (as I'm sure you're well aware of, since you took the time to point out Bernie is Jewish), and the goal is to eliminate, or at least reduce, prejudice. Not to fan its flames.
Besides the fact that Christianity has a lot to thank Judaism for, the latter which happens to be the roots of the former.
But your missing the main point of my Argument. In my PERSONAL opinion; I think Donald Trump is the best choice. HOWEVER he is not the only option.
Fair enough. In my personal opinion, I think that Trump would be a big mistake. Fortunately, yes, he is not the only option.
The Argument I'm making is that Bernie Sanders is not the "Socialist Hero" peo ple seem to praise him for; neither do I think he should be voted for; considering the current circumstances.
People aren't praising him for being socialist, they're praising him because he shows that he cares about the rest of the country struggling under the rich and powerful. That is the topic he has focused on the most.
I understand your frustration but True Peace is wishy washy at this point considering everything we've done in the Middle East so far. Obama was supposedly a "Peaceful Hippie" when he was first voted into power and withdrew our troops from Iraq; but now just look at how much things have changed for the WORSE since his rise to power? The Middle east is becoming a Hell-hole. At this point; everyone is after our heads. We need a leader to lead the country into Economic growth and Military enforcement for Self-Defense.
The hell-hole occurred due to natural accumulation of tension. The Middle East has had its fair share of trouble AGES before we took a step in. Our hand in helping Israel just made it harder to wage war and terrorism on its people, which means that Israel's enemies have to try harder to bypass our defense to inflict damage. And trust me, we don't need more military funding. We lead #1 in military funding. We have more money going into military than a handful of the next few runner-ups (almost all of whom are ALLIES).
You seem to have a west-centric view of the world. Really, not many people in the world care about us. Most of those who do, who are in the middle east, are west-hating, Christian-hating radicals. I challenge you to travel to the Middle East (or even around the world) and learn what their cultures are like. Ask about America while you're at it. You'd probably be surprised.

I see you're still struggling to be relevant.
