276  Presidential Elections - Analysis and Discussion / 2016 U.S. Presidential Election / Re: CLINTON EVISCERATES TRUMP on: June 02, 2016, 11:20:28 pm
The majority of this speech in a nutshell: "Hey! At least I'm not that crazy guy, Trump!"
Seriously though, still can't stand her and her center-right talking points. Worst nominees in a generation.
Is calling America an exceptional nation a center-right talking point? Seeing the importance of a strong America on the global stage is a center-right talking point now? News to me!

Yes, propping up American imperialism and global dominance as some bastardized force for security is common tool by the Right and has been for some time.

278  Presidential Elections - Analysis and Discussion / 2016 U.S. Presidential Election / Re: Bernie or Bust, or we will de-register from the Democratic Party on: June 01, 2016, 07:54:55 pm
It's funny because the whole point of the Sanders campaign was to (as has been done countless times before in the Democratic Party) rally previously-apathetic young people and those more politically left-leaning back into the Democratic fold. Not until he starting doing much better than people thought he would would this ever have been an issue. If this sticks, then talk about a backfire. Looks like Sanders did -too- good of a job convincing his supporters that Hillary and the DNC are paid-off by the doner class.

Trump could perform a live abortion on cable news and Clinton still wouldn't win Texas.

I don't know to what you're referring; he clearly fought for the North in the Civil War...

LOL

This board would have a 40-reply topic if Sanders was caught picking his nose.

I believe that honor goes to "liberal"
283  Presidential Elections - Analysis and Discussion / 2016 U.S. Presidential Election / Re: Bernie now dictating to Hillary how to pick her VP on: May 29, 2016, 06:26:52 pm
As somebody who's backed Bernie since May of 2015, he should let the presumptive nominee do what she wants.

This. In fact Hillary should pick a mainstreamer like Booker or Kaine or Hickenlooper.

Best tactic to get a Trump presidency 10/10
284  Presidential Elections - Analysis and Discussion / 2016 U.S. Presidential Election / Re: Bernie Sanders also clueless about VA hospitals on: May 27, 2016, 11:16:36 pm
Sanders' response is valid. Instead of making the healthcare system stronger, the hosts of this program seemed to be in the nutcase-rightwinger mindset of abolishing government health programs all-together, and using their case-study examples to claim that providing healthcare to all is the wrong thing to do. Sanders responded with Wall Street because the alternative to the VA is a private, for-profit service: thereby turning patients into consumers and increasing the power of Big Pharma/Medical.

The bigger question was about the role of the federal government. The hosts were insinuating that private companies would be more efficient than the government while Sanders believes it is the job of the federal government to protect the people and rein in private juggernauts like Wall Street. Came across pretty clear to me as a standard liberal-vs-conservative match.

Not surprising that the biggest coward in the race backpedaled again. What a joke.

Nader, no doubt.

288  General Politics / Individual Politics / Re: Best/Worst governors in your state since 1900? on: May 26, 2016, 01:47:52 am
Best: FDR or Dewey
Worst: Probably Spitzer by default. Otherwise Pataki or Cuomo.

lol @ the Hillary people furious with Sanders for this. Honestly quite sad.

It'll be entertaining to watch this place go into meltdown when she can't keep up with Trump in her own 1-on-1 later on. I'm sure you'll all find a way to blame Sanders for her failings then too.

Indoors, absolutely due to negative health effects. Outdoors, not sure.

The police protect a fascist, FF protesters fight back.
Trump and Clinton are both going to have a very cynical public to persuade.

For Jill Stein.
295  Presidential Elections - Analysis and Discussion / 2016 U.S. Presidential Election / Re: Bernie fans: if he were more conservative than Hillary, but acting the same... on: May 24, 2016, 05:24:12 pm
I believe it is a healthy precedent not to take money from big doners and a healthy precedent not to succumb to party bosses who demand you drop out and endorse their chosen candidate. There is no law that demands a candidate drop out to "unify" the party. Apart from that, anything that threatens our two-party duopoly is fine by me.

That being said, no, I don't believe very many Bernie fans would approve of him if he were running on a platform of healthcare privatization and spending reduction.
This isn't about policy.

This is about Sanders (a minority) trying to decide things for the whole party that the majority has rejected.

Considering how ready and willing Hillary is to compromise with the Republicans, there is no reason she shouldn't be leading the effort in the party to compromise with Sanders and allow him to have a voice. That's how you get some semblance of political unity.

His betrayal of the LibDem voting bloc basically paved the way for SNP, so in that regard, FF.
Otherwise, bourgeois scum.
