Be Afraid Republicans As Bernie Sanders Is Set To Strike In Red State Louisiana


After drawing tens of thousands of supporters in red states Texas and Arizona, the presidential campaign of Bernie Sanders has announced that they will be rallying in Louisiana this weekend.

The Sanders campaign announced, “U.S. Sen. Bernie Sanders will travel to Louisiana this weekend. The Democratic Party presidential candidate will hold a rally in Kenner.”

The Louisiana campaign rally comes on the heels of Bernie Sanders setting a new 2016 record by drawing 11,000 to a rally in Phoenix last Saturday, and 13,200 to rallies in Dallas and Houston, TX on Sunday.

Sanders is drawing massive crowds in states that are thought of as Republican territory. The number of people turning out to support Sanders suggests that his economic message, which is similar to that of the Democratic Party, resonates very well in states that have tons of first-hand experience with disastrous Republican trickle-down economics.

Gov. Bobby Jindal has virtually destroyed the economy of the state by using his position as a platform for his 2016 Republican presidential bid.

When Jindal took office in 2008, the state had a $900 million budget surplus that the governor managed to turn into a $1.6 billion deficit through trickle-down tax cuts. He has doubled the state’s unemployment rate while refusing to raise taxes. Jindal has become reviled in his state by slashing funding for education and healthcare. Gov. Jindal tried to replace the state tax with a much higher sales tax, but he had to pull the plan after both Democrats and Republican rebelled.

Bobby Jindal is so disliked in deep red Louisiana that President Obama has a higher approval rating than the Republican governor.

After experiencing the damage caused by Jindalnomics, Bernie Sanders should find a very warm and welcoming audience for his populist economic message in Louisiana.

Sen. Sanders is storming the South, and destroying the myth that there are no liberals in red states at each stop along the way.

Republicans should be very afraid. Bernie Sanders is bringing liberal policies to their red state territory, and the people are liking what he is saying. Sanders is building a nationwide political movement that is on a mission to take back America from the Koch brothers and corporations.

  1. Take the journey with Bernie! He is the only voice that is telling the absolute truth. He has the history to back up everything he is saying. He has always been on our side. Who is afraid of socialism? Wall St. bankers, corporation CEO’s and greedy capitalists. Hmmmm. Certainly not me.

  2. I don’t understand why Politicusa thinks the GOP should fear Bernie. Yes, he has had large turnouts in Red States, which is good
    But, they are Red States, and in the end, a Republican will win them come election night, November 2016

  3. I shall wait, and see.

    Just about everything built in America- is socialist in nature.

    Because technically- none of us can do anything alone.

  4. Good news for all of us:
    Really good news: Some of you know that we are screening a work-in-progress of THE BRAINWASHING OF MY DAD at Michael Moore’s Traverse City Film Festival on July 29!

    But new better news!: Since Traverse City sold out the first screening, they added a second screening on August 1. And, holy moly – that sold out too!!!

    Little by little we’re getting there. Thanks to all of you for your support!

    Here’s the Movie Trailer:

  5. If Hillary wins the nomination I would agree with you. Bernie is another matter. He has a far broader appeal than Hillary and most republicans.

  6. Yes.
    Finally the dems are coming down south. Whomever the Democrats candidate is.
    southern votes are needed to win the presidency. Kennedy, Carter, Clinton, Obama all won southern states.


  7. there isn’t ONE tea bag/repub who can compete with Bernie’s record or his stance on the issues.

    Bernie is talking about solutions to our problems. Hillary is also doing this, except she has wall street with her.

    All they can do is sling mud at president Obama even thou he isn’t running, they rarely if ever talk about solutions.

  8. Why do the republicans think this is acceptable??

    Republicans love running state deficits.
    New Jersey – $7.25 billion deficit
    Wisconsin – $2.2 billion budget deficit
    Florida – $1.3 billion deficit
    Louisiana – $1.6 billion deficit
    Wisconsin – $2.2 billion budget deficit
    Pennsylvania – $1.8 billion deficit
    Kansas – $1 billion deficit
    Arizona – $1.5 billion deficit
    Alaska – $3.5 billion deficit
    Alabama – $950 million deficit
    Alabama – $700 million deficit
    Michigan – $454 million deficit
    North Carolina – $445 million deficit
    Oklahoma – $600 million deficit
    Maryland – $1.2 billion deficit
    Texas – $27 billion deficit

  9. One of the greatest things about Bernie Sanders is he is not afraid to say what is not “politically correct.” Whether he is speaking in Madison, Wisconsin or Phoenix, Arizona his message is the same. The bonus is, people across America are having the same reaction. Go Bernie

  10. Compare Sanders’ senate record vs. HRC’s senate record here:

    Note that Bernie’s ‘score’ is closest to Blumenthal, Merkley, Whitehouse. HRC’s is with Feingold, Akaka, Feinstein, Kennedy.

    I’ll be voting for Bernie in my state’s (CA) late primary, but will support and vote for whoever the Democratic nominee is in the general.

  11. CA’s is in June with largest # of registered DEMOCRATIC voters.

    “The share of voters registered with the Democratic Party (43.4%) is down slightly from 44.5% in 2010, as is the share registered with the Republican Party (30.8% to 28.4%). The percentage of voters without a party preference is up from 20.2% in 2010 to 21.2%.”

  12. Yes, and California’s presidential primary still falls under the ‘party preference’ system, unlike the ‘jungle primary’ without party labels for all other political races.
    The Democratic presidential primary allows ‘independents’, what are termed ‘Decline to State’ to participate along with registered Democrats. Republicans do not allow this.
    This means that 65% of eligible voters in California could have a BIG impact in the outcome for the Democratic presidential 2016 nominee.
