ocumentary filmmaker Michael Moore said late Tuesday that Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) won the first Democratic presidential debate.

“Chris Matthews nails it: Sanders won,” he tweeted, echoing the MSNBC anchor’s assessment of the event in Las Vegas.

"Never be4 @ a mainstream debate has a Prez candidate dared 2 question the core system of wealth & power,” Moore said of Sanders’s performance.

“History was made tonite: A conscientious objector running 4 Prez, who believes in democratic socialism, stood & spoke & was wildly applauded,” he added.

Moore praised Sanders’s handling of both fiscal and racial issues.

“Thank you Bernie for just saying it: Black Lives Matter,” he wrote. "And for mentioning Sandra Bland – killed in a cop’s jail in Texas.”

“Quote of the night – Sanders: 'Congress doesn’t regulate Wall Street, Wall Street regulates Congress,” Moore said. "Huge applause.”

Moore also charged that Democratic presidential front-runner Hillary Clinton’s is not capable of resisting wealthy special interests.

“Well, any of you with a good sniffer knows what I know from what we all just heard: The banks are going to love President H. Clinton,” he said.

“Clinton said she told the banks to ‘cut it out’ – yeah, that worked,” Moore then quipped.

Moore additionally charged that the GOP presidential field lacks the substance of their Democratic counterparts.

“Get ready for something we’re not used to in a 2016 presidential debate: Decency. Smart people. Facts. Tons of facts,” he wrote of the Democratic contest.

“Parental warning to Republicans watching this debate: These people believe in evolution, science and a woman’s right to her own body,” Moore tweeted.

“These are candidates who know the USA is nearly 75 percent women, people of color or young adults,” the “Fahrenheit 9/11” director added of the Democratic contenders. "They know that’s the only way to win.”

Clinton and Sanders met former Sen. Jim Webb (D-Va.) and former Govs. Martin O’Malley (D-Md.) and Lincoln Chafee (D-R.I.) during Tuesday night’s event. The next Democratic National Committee debate is scheduled for Nov. 14 in Des Moines, Iowa.

" A conscientious objector running 4 Prez, who believes in democratic socialism"
yes the system works - like in Finland - free education, healthcare - quality and affordable.
"Health care in Finland consists of a highly decentralized, three-level publicly funded health care system and a much smaller private health care sector. Although the Ministry of Social Affairs and Health has the highest decision-making authority, the municipalities (local governments) are responsible in providing health care to their residents.

Finland offers its residents universal health care. Health promotion, including prevention of diseases has been the main focus of Finnish health care policies for decades. This has resulted in the eradication of certain communicable diseases and improvement in the health of population.

The quality of service in Finnish health care is considered to be good; according to a survey published by the European Commission in 2000, Finland has the highest number of people satisfied with their hospital care system in the EU: 88% of Finnish respondents were satisfied compared with the EU average of 41.3%.[1]"

And, thank you Activista for pointing out this truly accurate info. on Finland, and thank dear St. Michael Moore, the Irish devil (takes one to know one), for his soooooo truthful and accurate coverage and conclusion.

On a personal note - I stopped first at the local Dem. headquarters, as I'd been invited to do, and found only a small handful of people present to watch the debate. I then very quickly left for the Bernie Sanders supporters' debate watching gathering, which I'd also been asked to attend, and found approx. 80 folks present.

The claps and shouts for what Bernie had to say was intense, while the grim plus faces, with head shaking 'no's', was what prevailed when Hillary spoke.

Following what I learned in New York, while on the plaintiffs' legal team at the Hedges, et. al. v. Obama, et. al. trial, re. the Clinton Foundation's and Hillary's corruption, I do believe that the 1%ers and their puppet cronies are doing all they can to make certain that Hillary is the Dem. nominee, and Trump or Jeb is the G.O.P. nominee.

The 1%ers must vomit at the thought of Bernie Sanders getting the post-debate overwhelming approval he got online, following the debate, and the vast numbers (1 mil.) of 'small' donations that came to him, from his ever growing numbers of regular supporters (myself included). All the while, as the 'mess' media declared Hillary Clinton to be the 'debate winner'.

Agree Michael Moore. The powers that be, aka the Wealthy who own this nation, want Hilary or Jeb! or Trump. They want no part of Sanders. My gut feeling is that TPTB feel they can turn an O'Malley, Webb, and Chaffee into an automatons they can be easily control. Just like Obama has been easily corralled.
