Bernie won this debate hands down!

I agree we need to stop the big A Pacts and Citizen United from buying our politions.

Hillary is supported by big money big lobbyist and the A Pacts. You will not see any changes if she becomes President.

Bernie on the other hand can make changes he owes them nothing.

Hillary is already playing the "woman" card . . .


I think the opposition plays it more.


Indeed they do, but I cannot stand the idea that she would use it as well. Hillary, as well as any democrat, must stand on issues to be elected. Playing the same game as the Republicans is a recipe for disaster.

Just look at what it's doing for the Republicans.


Republicans play the "woman" card?


They play it in negative.


yeah, negativity and fear

It's a statement about the tactics themselves, not necessarily about women.

I'm a bit confused.

The commentary after the debate is propping-up Sanders.

Why are you confused? I mentioned that's what they would do before the debate was over. You can tell because they were "propping him" during the little "rocky" montages during ad breaks. The media decided they wanted him awhile ago.

Hilary sounds shaky and ridiculous.

While the others are developing, she appears to becoming untied.

Has the establishment found a way to endorse Bernie while keeping the corruption from unfolding?

They keep mentioning the Caymans, like there aren't any more places where a squirrel hides their nuts.

It is a Christian, white-mans country, but I would like to think that we could get beyond that.



So the hell would I

Forgive me if I am not convinced that is the case.

I thought Hillary was the chosen-one. That has been the rhetoric since this campaign began.

That's honorable, but maybe that's just a part of the plan. I feel like the establishment wants to go socialist, he would be the guy to make that happen under the guise of it being 'democratic'.



He never has, that's the thing. He's been an elected politician for a long time and he's been anti-establishment the whole way. He has never taken money from bankers, Super-PAC's or from Wall St. and has always spoken against the corruption that doing so causes. That's not going to change if he becomes President.

It's the people that see the benefit of moving in that direction (as if we don't already have plenty of social programs interwoven into the way our country operates), not the establishment. The establishment is bought and paid for, due to unregulated capitalism. They (the establishment) are not going to advocate ripping away from the hand that feeds them. It's going to take the will of the people to do that.

And even Bernie doesn't want to "go socialist", this meme is part of the scare tactic.

Well it became the most evident in this debate in particular.

1.) By ignoring O'Malley openly and unabashedly they basically decided that it needed to be a 2 person debate.

That brings us to Sanders and Clinton.

2.) Everyone knows Sanders is more popular among younger voters, and so they take a crap ton of questions that are likely going to be softball questions from his likely supporters on youtube. (Youtube is way more popular among the young than the old, so that automatically tilts the questions to Sanders supposed strengths)

3.) In between the segments they show sanders as fighting and overcoming the "establishment" to make him look like a winner before answering questions.

If he wins, I think it's time to start a campaign to get signitures and unite the people under a banner, "Real Citizen's United." Where we all sign and make a pact to not vote for any politician who accepts a Super-Pac.

It would mean of course voting in some weird people for awhile til they learn their golden goose has flown, but the time would be ripe for it.

Best way to defeat Citizen's United, make using it and instant loss.

Oh? did you notice that during the last montage when they were showing the candidates? Notice how they showed a bad quality video of O'Malley singing a song, then makes note that he had a 0% popularity in the polls?

Hillary is clearly fading. Right now, absent someone else in the race of substance, the media has to try to drag Sanders over the line.

Whom else are they going to champion? A Republican?

If we get rid of it, then we better cut out unions on all levels too. They're exactly the same as any pac or corp under Citizens United.

Oh, and we better not allow the government to ban political speech it doesn't like which was why the case was lost you understand.

The government argued it could ban books it didn't like that made political statements. Digest that for a bit and then read the 1st Amendment again.
