After that giant fiasco in Iowa where they choose Ted Cruz and Hillary using her typical mafia like tactics to win one thing is clear....

It's going to take a huge presence in order to get Trump or Sanders in the race.

Honestly at this point I don't care who wins as long as one of them is on the main stage shaking things up.

I really like Bernie and after going back and forth between him as Trump what made me make the switch was when he said that the only way to get anything accomplished was by getting Wall Street and the mega corps out of the pockets of congress.

So let's do it people. I'll be at the California one.

Some states have caucuses, while others (most these days) have primaries. Some have combinations. A primary is more of a straight up open vote.

This is a list of all such events this year as pertains to the presidential nominations and election.

Sadly, by the time we reach June and it's California's turn to vote in the primary, we will likely already know who the presumptive nominee of each party is or is virtually certain to become. But I still plan to vote, provided my candidate hasn't dropped out.

Peace.

I think that the Bernie momentum is just beginning!

After the debate last night it is clear the Hilldog has nothing to run on.

The only votes that she can acquire are from the sleeping sheep and fortunately for us people are most definitely waking up!

Here's the thing I don't get, I literally have NEVER personally met a Hillary supporter. I don't talk politics much with others, but I have never met a person that said they are for hilldog and would vote for it.

When we look around the world we see interventions by the west against dictators and criminal corrupt leadership.

Why does hillary rotten Clinton even get a single vote?

The crimes she has been linked to is frightening. Do the American voters not educate themselves on who is their possible leader or is this a case of deny everything as conspiracy and propaganda.

If I was an American I would be out drumming up as much support for annnnnnyyyyone but clintons.

Can any American voter tell me why Clinton is even in this race never mind leading it.

No, I can't other than speculating it's all rigged. I seriously haven't talked to a single person that would vote for it.

Honestly this is why I see Bernie actually standing a chance!

His campaign rings true to everyone who has been disillusioned by the system. All you need to do is look to his entire speech/voting history and see that he has been carrying the torch for a long time.

Add to that the millenials are immersed in the new tech that is starting to seep through and you can see that we have a whole new future a head of us and being ruled by a rich elite is simply not an option!

I'm excited that I will be attending my first caucus, all because I'm rooting for Bernie. I wasn't going to attend but after what I saw happened in Iowa I need to be there.

Several reasons...

1. Momentum. She was married to one of the most popular presidents (among Democrats) in recent history and involved in his presidency. Democrats love Bill Clinton. They see Hillary's presidency as a continuation of his. The Clinton Presidency: A Historic Era of Progress and Prosperity


Longest economic expansion in American history, More than 22 million new jobs, Highest homeownership in American history. Lowest unemployment in 30 years, Largest expansion of college opportunity since the GI Bill, Lowest crime rate in 26 years, Enacted most sweeping gun safety legislation in a generation, Smallest welfare rolls in 32 years, Higher incomes at all levels

For a Democrat, what's not to love? If I thought she would be as successful as Bill, hell, I may even support her!

2. Status-quo. Believe it or not, many people want things to continue as they have been. Many of the people who supported Barack Obama now support Hillary for the same reasons.

3. "Socialism" fear-mongering. People don't know WTF a democratic socialist is and use the word to scare others. (See #5 below about "self-education").

4. History. It would be another historical election for the Democrats. A woman president may even more "historic" than the first black president.

5. Political ignorance. So many voters have no clue about politics. They don't follow it any more than to see who's running. They couldn't tell you who contributed to Hillary's campaign, nor do they care. It's more "comfortable" to just stick with what you know, even if you don't know very much... Self-education is hard and takes time. People have more mundane things to be worried about.

I could probably think of a few more, but I'll stop there.

Go Bernie!!!

Actually it's the ones that believe she has committed crimes that need to educate themselves in the truth, not republican propaganda. That aside I back Bernie. It's about time something is done

How can someone go back and forth between trump and sanders????
I'm actually curious because they are diametrically opposed on their ideas of governance...

One is an avowed socialist and son of an immigrant whose platform is at the very least Marxism light....

Trump wants to halt Muslim immigration, accuses debate moderators of menstruating, and plans on re-building the us armed forces while instituting a kind of forced diplomacy(pun intended)....

Again, how can anyone vacillate between those two....

I couldn't support Trump in a million years, but I can understand how someone might vacillate between the two to a degree... They're both "different". True, they're very different from each other, but they're also different from the status quo. Every other candidate is in the pocket of big business and their behavior will benefit wealthy corporations. Yeah, Donald isn't beholden to big business, but he's not beholden to the people, either. He'll do what HE wants, not what the people want.

Bernie Sanders is a tax and spend liberal, albeit an extremely honest one....while it's refreshing to hear a liberal own up to his dreams of taxing us into oblivion, it doesn't change his platform...
With sanders we have a new delivery of the age old Marxist message....honesty....I guess that makes him better than Hillary who undoubtedly aspires to tax us into oblivion but has the political sense to hide that fact(remember Mondale took sanders tact in 84 and lost every single state save Minnesota if memory serves)

Sanders is a big government tax and spend liberal/progressive/socialist.....he just does a better job at being honest about it than his liberal predecessors....either that or people have become ignorant of the past...

All those "reasons" make me want to throw up.

If she gets the nomination over Bernie there will be absolutely no doubt left in many minds that the voting & political system is a scam. I would hope for rioting in the streets over a Hillary presidency.

I'll take a tax and spend Liberal over a make more bombs, planes, and guns while cutting taxes on the wealthiest of US citizens (and corporations and financial organizations that are too big to fail) and cutting social programs (cuz they're the leaches) conservative ANY day.

This whole process is stupid. It should be standardized and done either on the same day nation-wide, or over the course of 2-3 days.

It seems Iowa and New Hampshire use this whole thing as a way to boost state revenue...instead of looking for new, innovate and creative industries...they just sell themselves to politicians.

Bernie is STILL an Independent in a donkey suede jacket due to the fact that it was necessary to don to get his message across on a national level.

He voted against the Patriot Act.
He voted against attacking a country that had nothing to do with 9/11 and ended up being a twelve year quagmire.

Those two things alone show the guy has reason beyond everyone else in Washington.

Go Bernie.
