I have had to deal with union bosses over the years and I grew to dislike them immensely, but I must confess I have gotten to point where I have to admit America needs the unions to step up. They are going to be instrumental in moving the country to a more equitable environment and a reduction of the insane wealth of the Kochs and The Waltons et all who accumulated their wealth off the backs of their staff they pay 7-10 dollars.

it is very serious the Koch brother agenda, they want to provide funds for people to join politics as "their representative" effectively making the senators or congress men and women their employees.
This is not an exaggeration. They are moving the staff who get elected to run the country to be their personnel, not the representatives of their constituents.

So as much as I want to poke some unions in the face, they saved the newly developing world back in the day, and they have to try do it again. Albeit they have to sort out some policies to be more embracing of win for both employees and employers.

LOL I can't believe I just wrote pro union, but it's gotten that bad america.

In my state (MA) I can be and am Unenrolled, I can vote for whoever I want regardless but if were registered to the Republican Party I would have to unenroll or switch to Democrat before the primary to vote for a democrat and vice versa.

Not all states have the same voting rules though.


That's just stupid! Who gives a flying fornication how you are registered when it comes to voting? That is another dumb ass rule that shouldn't be....It is in place obviously to keep people from voting or changing to vote different....I hate some of our "rules"....A joke really

It is hard to believe that party pre-enrollment is a thing here....

The last time I voted for Hope and Change I got fisted by the U.S. Government instead.

I reserve my judgement. An idealist isn't always the best presidential choice. The last 8 years have proven that, and I voted for the guy. Twice.
And your other choice was...

I agree, but the wool was pulled over many peoples eyes because Obama was bankrolled by the Big Wall Street Banks.

Sanders has 0 donations from the Big Corporations and Banks that own our government.
Having said that. I still think you are right.

If Jesus was president, he would be labeled Satan in the Media by the Big Corps and Banking Heads that infest DC.

As long as this problem exists, nothing is going to change:

He's just another herder looking for his sheep. He will definitely find plenty of them on this site. There hasn't been one politician in office in my entire lifetime that wasn't a scumbag and only looked out for themselves. Until that changes, screw voting!

Bette an Idealist than an outright crook...like Bush for example. Or a corporate whore, like Romney. I'm not sure how I feel about Hillary. As of now, I'm definitely thinking of voting for Sanders.

In one sentence, straight off of his campaign website, I will never vote for Bernie Sanders:




KEY ACTIONS
Introduced the gold standard for climate change legislation with Sen. Barbara Boxer to tax carbon and methane emissions.

Why is that? We know Climate change is real, most of the scientists in the world are telling us that. Google it. That gives me even more reason to vote for him. He believes in Science.

No politician is going to convince me to vote for them in 3 minutes.

Not a chance in Hell.

I will look into all of them as closely as I can, or as I can stand, then make my decision. That'll take more than 3 months, much less 3 minutes.

Sorry.

I'm kind of surprised you take it so literally.

Because carbon tax is (to me, obviously), a stupid idea. Climate change is real, has been happening for billions of years. Do I think humans have caused it? No.

I guess I should clarify. IMO the jury is still out on whether or not humans have significantly contributed to climate change.

Meh, by the time the next election rolls around I'll probably be a Japanese Citizen anyway.

I do hope the U.S. gets it right this time around. Democrat or Republican, I don't care. I just want to see America prosper again.


America is prospering just fine for the corporations thanks to both the DNC and the GOP, its the individual Americans and citizens of the world that are getting screwed.

Unfortunately, no candidate that is endorsed by the GOP or the DNC will change anything as they will be bought and purchased by big CORP.

Ron Paul , was a perfect example of a candidate that was sabotaged by his own party because he actually had the record to match what he preached: smaller gov't , less taxes, more individual rights, and more state rights. All things the Republicans claim to want and when they get a guy who implements those things they say he is crazy and a radical.

If Bernie gets endorsed then we will know he was purchased by big corp, if he gets thrown to the wolves by his own party .than we will know he was the real thing. Not good either way but that is what the reality appears to look like.

Whether it takes 1 second to select a candidate or whether it takes you 6 months to properly research it in the end it won't matter.

Just wanted to explain why they have "closed primaries". Only Dems can vote in the Dem primary and only Republicans can vote in the Republican primary. Because if a Dem voted in the Republican primary, they might vote for the worst candidate, to give their (Dem) candidate a better chance at winning the general election. The aim of closed primaries, of course, is to maintain the 2-party system and not give us a real choice.



Open primaries pave the way for "crossover voting," in which voters of one party may try to influence the nomination of an opposing party.

I prefer how Washington and California do it. They have one primary election with ALL the candidate's names on the ballot, and you can only vote for one. But that's far too progressive for both dominant parties and doesn't give them the control they want.
