If we learned anything from the crappy Christmas sweater that was Mitt Romney, the majority of Americans just don’t care for the ridiculously well-coiffed candidates who flip-flop like it’s an Olympic sport.

Bernie’s anti-war (or anti-rational and unnecessary war) activism spans back to the 1960s, and he makes no apologies for opposing needless bloodshed for profit.

But President Obama wasn’t the only man with enough sense to not eat freedom fries and whatever tainted meat Dick Cheney and company were selling. Senator and 2016 Democratic Presidential Candidate Bernie Sanders (I-VT), then a U.S. Congressman representing the state of Vermont, was also a very vocal opponent of liberating
