Bernie Sanders has no religion

Bernie Sanders when asked about his religious beliefs:

…Every great religion in the world---Christianity, Judaism, Islam, Buddhism---essentially comes down to: “Do unto others as you would like them to do unto you.” What I have believed in my whole life---I believed it when I was a 22-year-old kid getting arrested in Chicago fighting segregation---I’ve believed it in my whole life...

This is the ecumenical answer by someone who isn't really interested in religion. Even a political candidate advocating a social revolution can't bring himself to say that. But Cuomo's question specifically included whether he believed in "a higher power" ruling the universe, which Sanders didn't answer. 

All religions, by the way, are not the same.

Sanders seems to be a secular humanist, not a religious believer. I don't care about his religious beliefs or lack thereof any more than I care about Hillary's. I'm going to vote for Hillary because I think she's the best political choice for the country.

Trump and Mussolini

Okay, I know it's a cliche and a low blow when liberals compare American conservative politicians to historical fascists. But in the video above Mussolini even looks like Donald Trump without the hair. And there's the air of Trump-like self-satisfaction as he basks in the adoration of the crowd.

Trump's disingenuous response to David Duke's endorsement makes calling him a fascist not such a low blow.
