Why are we fighting for a Secular government of Rights of Choice? We should already have that. Its crazy and wrong.

The "government of the people" needs an IQ test if they want to make political decisions instead of personal emotional ones.


Hear, hear! I support a citizen's right to choose whether or not to buy insurance, or buy a gun, or marry whoever they want, or get a vaccine.

Sign me up! Right to choose for all!


Not having insurance and not having vaccines for commutable diseases affects everyone.

But, that is not on topic. Please discuss elsewhere.

Dont you just love how all the most partisan left wingers on this forum "aren't political" and just now chose their party?


I never said I "wasn't political"... I said I wasn't a "political party member". You know... Democrats and Republicans. I think I'm one of the most political posters here... I'm VERY interested in politics. Where you been, son?



Not only that, but your support is for someone on the FAR LEFT. Not political, but now you're a socialist?


Again, I didn't say I wasn't political. I don't know where you got that idea. And I'm not a socialist, but in a minute, I'm gonna be a Democrat.

So, Right to Choose only applies to abortions and gay marriage. That's disappointing. I was so ready to jump on the bandwagon.


Which candidates support everyone's Right to Choose? I like for people to be able to make choices even if I disagree with them.

I suggest you start a thread if this is what you want to discuss.

I know Bernie will have my vote. I know the main stream media is pushing for Clinton and claiming Bernie can't be a legitimate candidate, but the more they say that the more I hope he gains in popularity. Bernie comes across to me as a sincere and honest man. Our corrupt system needs to be shaken up by someone who isn't a millionaire or billionaire like most of the other candidates. He's not being supported with PAC money, and he's addressing issues that affect the vast majority of Americans.

I'll repeat what I said in the other thread here since it belongs here more.


I'm not sure I'm at THAT point yet, but I imagine that I may end up doing that too if the Republicans continue to carry on like they are doing. I really don't like Hillary either. I didn't like her in 2008 and I can't find a reason to like her now. Heck I stopped being a fan of her when she moved out of the White House to New York state during her husband's Presidency all so that she can be eligible to run as a New York Senator as soon as Bill left office. The struck me as a VERY shady tactic to gain power at any cost.


The idea of registering as a Democrat or a Republican is disgusting to me...


I share your point of view, but at the same time I think there's certain people that are worth registering for in order to get them through a primary.

Sanders is one such person.

I am shocked, *shocked* I say, to see socialist/progressives saying they will vote for Sanders. Inconceivable!

You were the one that brought up "Right to Choose."

After the Supreme Court upheld the debt slavery program known as Obamacare, I made up my mind that I would speak up whenever someone said that Democrats support someone's "Right to Choose," whether it's "on topic" or not.

If someone wants to say Democrats support a woman's right to choose to have an abortion, fine, that's accurate. If someone wants to to say Democrats support a woman's right to choose appropriate medical decisions for her own body, no , that is not accurate.

If someone says Democrats support gay marriage, fine, that's accurate. If they say Democrats support marriage equality, no, not until they fight as hard for polygamists as they did for homosexuals.

And if someone says that Democrats support a person's "Right to Choose," I have no qualms about calling that person a damned liar. It's the least I can do for the future generations of insurance company debt slaves.

I get why Bernie Sanders is popular amongst many, I too will vote for him in the primaries but I know he won't get the nomination. I will have no problem voting for Hillary in the general election against whichever insane person the GOP nominates.

Too much at stake to throw a temper tantrum because my choice didn't get the nomination. The next president will most likely appoint a new Supreme Court judge and a few more.

I will vote for Sanders in the primaries, just so the old hag doesn't get in. Other then that I'm open.

Bernie is a Bolshevik if I ever saw one

Supporting Bernie is like supporting Lenin

Seems like a good idea until you realise most people won't follow the self imposed rules only a few intellectuals tinker with.

It doesn't work

Capitalism works if it doesn't become too big to fail

It's a great thing to exercise a freedom. To join or not join a political party. Too bad we don't have the same freedoms when it comes to healthcare. But good for you for exercising a right.

You have to join a political party to get healthcare?

News to me. What country do you live in?

Can't say the responses in here surprise me. Supporting a known socialist....now I totally get it. Now I understand the twisted logic used by so many in these forums. Now I understand why you folks defend that which shouldn't be defended. Now I understand why folks you spend post after post taunting and so-called debating other members, wearing them down with facts, sure, but also with a pompous and arrogant attitude that somehow yours is the only opinion that matters on these boards.

I'm taking the George Carlin approach this year and, most likely, for the rest of my life. I'm not going to vote. I don't support any of these bozos and don't feel the need to all of a sudden get excited about someone just because there is an upcoming election. It's already a done deal. A winner has already been chosen.

I'm not a big Rush Limbaugh fan either, but I do listen to his show when grabbing some lunch. I did like his commentary how everything in Washington is scripted. Paul Ryan was probably chosen weeks ago!

The thing that drives me nuts about elections is watching ordinary people turn into stark raving loons about "their candidate." You see those shots of them at the conventions...you know, the ones wearing the Uncle Sam glitter hat and waving red, white and blue pinwheels! Then some arrogant dude or dudette, puffs out their chest and pledges 'x' amount of delegates for the great state of "x, y, or z." Blech.

When the election is over, they crawl back into their hole, not lifting a finger to help normal folks with their problems.

I figure you can tell the state of a country by the candidates it chooses to potentially run it. My opinion.....WE SUCK.

I refuse to contribute to the problems this country faces by voting (like it really matters anyway) for any of these imbeciles. I'd rather see us implode, most (o.k. all) of these folks disappear and then maybe we can form up a government that really cares about people again.

Good luck with your voting.....I hope you feel better about yourselves when this all over and the can has been kicked down the road even further.

You're merely repeating the ridiculous, low-information cant of partisan politics.

For one thing, the word socialist describes a person who believes in a certain economic system.

The word Democrat describes a member of a certain American political party.

You're conflating platform planks for social welfare with an economic system you apparently don't understand.

Once again, social safety net/government regulation of business/equal rights DOES NOT EQUAL socialism.

Sanders is a Democratic Socialist. That means something. Why not look it up?
