So I guess, as you have stated in other threads, all of the smart people are voting for Bernie, right?
As far as Facebook, it is where the majority get their news. A government backed propaganda machine. To put on the blinders.
This is not a blind infatuation like Obama.
How we won in 2012 is beyond me. The country was asleep.
You should care more about the meaning and content of the sometimes simple words someone can say instead of analyzing it for grammatical errors.
People who talk with SAT words all the time are pretentious. Lighten up. Relax. Bust some balls....

The last nail in the coffin of democracy would come from republicans. "Polarization" is just a substitute word for forcing your will on others usurping the vote. Can you not take responsibility for the failure of your philosophy and move on?
Last week, Survey USA released an eye-catching poll showing how Donald Trump would fare in head-to-head matchups against potential Democratic nominees Hillary Clinton, Bernie Sanders, Joe Biden, and Al Gore. The most shocking result was not that he beat all four of the candidates. What made everyone’s jaw hit the floor is that he received more than 20 percent support among African-American voters in every matchup.
Would you rather the man whom Fidel Castro supported in a 4 hour speech about how wonderful it is that America will become a socialist country under Sanders?
I will stick with someone who will at least keep America, America,
but I'll stick with this nation and not try turning it into a socialist state.

I'm a socialist. Of course I would.
Better pull up your bootstraps. Us socialists are making a comeback.
And we will fight you tooth and nail - in America the majority enjoys freedom.
We have seen socialism fail time and time again in practice.
We will have none of it. But this does explain why you hate Trump so much, he represents freedom, and you do not.
But you want to impose your views on the majority so how is it any different?
This is why the special interest folks are going crazy right now. No one is talking about gay marriage or abortion or budgets like you would normally see during this political season. Those are usually the 'big arguments' when it is not even a POTUS issue.
A person says they do like like a manger scene. It is removed.
Does not matter if it was there for years or a tradition, remove it.
This however is why you have local and state politics but again, that big government you want to continue to have has slowly taken over every part of our lives and current have 100 million on the welfare payroll. Socialism will not save that.
With no taxes all of your dreams turn to dust
Sorry, the majority of the country it would seem is too 'smart' for socialism...
You write at about a 4th to 5th grade level so I am OK understanding your diatribe here
Small bits of deflection while assuming that your view is the best because it is your opinion?
The US is already dangerously close to being the Progressive Socialist utopia the DNC and the GOP are fighting for. One where they can fight over carving up Federal monies. Both sides want it.
There was a time that this happened. A time when a president stepped in and did not just threaten to shut it all down if he does not get his way. He busted big balls that day and got away with it...
