African-Americans for Clinton? You Really Should Read This

If there aren't, then Sanders won't win. The biggest obstacle at the moment is from scared people trying to scare his supporters and undecideds that supporting him is a mistake.

 

I see supporting the system as it exists as the mistake.

 

Sanders wants to change it, Hillary doesn't - no matter how much she bald-face lies about it.

 

I agree with you 100% that Hillary supporters,  especially those at this forum,   use the cowardly tactic of trying to scare Dem primary voters that a vote for Sanders is a win for the GOP.

The truly sad thing was that Supreme Court Justice Thurgood Marshall became ill during Bush 41's administration. He had vowed to stay on the Court, but I suppose he gave up hope that a Democrat would win the White House in 1992. So he decided to step down -- and Bush 41 gave us Clarence Thomas, who's now second in seniority on the High Court. 

 

And totally useless.

I'll vote for my second choice - Trump. I'm pretty sure I've said that a couple of times.

 

You need to say it a few more times. I just don't understand. You're validating Bill Maher's argument that American voters aren't smart -- and maybe that's true for vicarious Canadians, too!   :o

I'm not trying to suggest people should vote for Bernie because Republicans hate Clinton. I was simply stating that, like Bogie said, they won't work with Sanders OR Clinton.

 

Right - they won't work with anybody.

 

The only reason "Obamacare" got passed is because the Insurance Industry knew it was a golden egg and wanted it. Woulda been a far different story if a single-payer option had been voted upon. Corporate Healthcare has made an absolute killing from "Obamacare".

 

We need a new kind of President - and we need more politicians who will follow the lead of that President. We need someone with the courage to shine a sodium-vapor light on all the cockroaches in government who keep selling out the citizenry - like Clinton and the rest of the Republicans.

Canada's a democratic-socialist country and I'm a democratic-socialist inside of it.

 

America's a dysfunctional and increasingly fascistic republic that has killed and ruined the lives of untold millions and has every intention of keeping it up.

 

Bill Maher is nothing but a mouthpiece entertainer. If you're basing your opinions on him, it's not me that's "not smart" between the two of us.

The only way I vote for Clinton is if neither Sanders nor Trump are available to be voted for.

 

If the choice is Trump (or Cruz) and Sanders, that is where Bloomberg comes in. And if he runs, no one really knows what will happen, despite those eager to say he will take from one side or another. He doesn't need to amass delegates, so there's really no rush for him to decide.

Cruz? Not a chance.

 

I'm not sure why anyone would vote for Bloomberg, but I guess you're right that it's unknowable as to how many or few it would be.

I like Maher. He puts his money where his mouthpiece is -- and he wrote a $1 million check to the Obama campaign in 2008.

 

And he's not like me. He regularly has Republican viewpoints on his HBO series. The only thing a Republican can do for me is tell me which way a Democrat went.

I like Maher too. He's often quite entertaining.

 

But he's only right about two-thirds of the time - and probably considerably less than that when it comes to government politics.

However, he would need to get on the ballot in all the states and terrortories, or at least most of them.  He would still have to win the electoral college.  That would take some time.

A snowball's chance in hell is what he's got of becoming President.

A panel of federal judges has declared the NC 1st and

12th congressional districts unconstitutional. The state

is appealing this to the SCOTUS. If the SCOTUS rejects

the appeal, the legislature is preparing for a special

session in order to redraw the maps for those two

districts. The ID voting law is also being challenged in

court. That will likely be decided before the general

election in November.

 

McGovern won the nomination and was slaughtered by

Tricky Dicky in the general election. That loss was almost

worth seeing Nixon getting into all kinds of trouble and

finally resigning.

I remember when there used to be a Democratic leaning district in western N.C.   Gerrymandering and voter suppression took care of that.  Always amusing to leave Greenville S.C. area and actually see bumper stickers and signs for Democratic candidates.   Most of them belonged to white people.

As a Canadian, how can you vote for any of them?

Scalia's croaking is already getting set to bestow its blessings.

Actually my comments have nothing to do with being a Hillary supporter.  I am just expressing my beliefs based on participating in, living in and studying American politics since 1964 (I started young).

I think the tremendous support Trump and Cruz have received and their high poll ratings shows how easy it is to manipulate the American voter.

Sanders positions and comments will offend too many voters in the purple states and result in a Republican victory.  May even turn some blue states purple or red.

Actually I don't think much of Hillary either, but she is the only other choice.

Might be. From what I've heard, if there is a tie,

the ruling of the lower body remains in effect.

 

They can always decide to table a vote if it's signicant enough. Apparently, an affirmative action case in Texas had already been voted on and decided 4 to 3 by the conservative justices. Justice Kagan had to abstain because she had dealt with the case earlier. So it will probably stand.

Read that until the actual decision is rendered at end of term, votes don't count.  Any votes Scalia made will be voided.

Thomas Pinketty seems to understand that a new era is beginning in U.S. politics.

 

 

Mr.. Pinketty had this comment in the article as it relates to the election:

 

"Because he is facing the Clinton machine, as well as the conservatism of mainstream media, Sanders might not win the race. But it has now been demonstrated that another Sanders – possibly younger and less white – could one day soon win the US presidential elections and change the face of the country".

 

Just like those on the far right he will fault the mainstream media if his 'team' doesn't win.   This is the standard operating procedure when either 'wing' loses an election. 

 

While I was a pup when McGroven loss to Nixon I do recall my older brother telling me that even with the loss this election changed the face of the country.    Yea, it did;  The Dem party realized that America was a moderate \ centralist country and moved in that direction.

The "mainstream" media does deserve a lot of blame for not covering issues very fairly or intelligently. There are many avenues they are ordered to not take by their corporate masters.

 

That's why I attempt to even out my news coverage away from CNN, the Times, and the "networks" as much as I can. Mainstream cannot be trusted for honest reporting of what citizens should know.

Wasn't that a guy called Obama?
