No, I don't think I have to ask the Government permission to exercise my 2nd amendment rights. As long as you are going to put some restrictions on my Constitutional rights why don't we add some to abortion rights and gay marriage? Feel like compromising those?

Now you know how I feel.

Don't let these types of reports fool you. Superdelegates don't count until the actual Democratic Convention. They can and do change their allegiances before the convention (or at the convention, like in 2008). So none of the Superdelegate "counts" should be taken seriously right now.

Here's a pretty good vid I saw that explains it a bit better.


edit: She's off on the total number of delegates & their percentage though.

The common citizen vote was never meant to decide much in America in the first place. To me, the sad part is that people do not understand how little their vote matters in large elections.

Getting involved in local and state government will do more to help clean up the federal government than any vote cast for clowns and demagogues in the race for President.



This is true - I came to the realization about a decade ago that the more local the election, the more it matters, at least as it affects my life and my surroundings. National stuff has bigger impacts, but the differences in what happens based on different potential office holders are very small, and my vote/influence an exceedingly tiny fraction of a percentage (1 in over 200,000,000 of voting age nationally, but 1 in about 30,000 of voting age in my town.)

No no no she's not currently being investigated by the FBI.
Her stint as SOS was less than stellar? You mean you couldn't find anything to criticize so you're going to invalidate her successes.

Let's look at what the CIA said when Sen gowdy sent him that letter demanding an investigation of Hillary for endangering lives.

I think many are probably rethinking their comments about Hillary, since they'll be voting for her instead of Trump/Cruz/Rubio in the general election.

It'll be amusing to see her defended against the GOP.


oh man.. it's all bad. Someone Tell me how Cruz or Rubio are better than Hillary. I see all three of them as being the same...slimy. Trump, with the things he's saying. I'm not sure how I can vote for a guy that makes fun of disable people, insults other candidates based on their looks, not their policies. Lord give me someone else!

Nope.

These are the people, out of 320 million, these people are the ones. . . again, out of 320 million, that were chosen to be voted upon by us to lead us.

Out of 320 million.

These are the ones.

Out of 320 million.

Sanders deserves it based on the content of his character and individual merit.

Too bad progressive socialists don't reward character and individual merit. Identity politics trump everything.

That's funny.

I do work for many different people and that includes both political parties.

Jeb did not drop out "on schedule" because he was supposed to be well-funded until the convention, leaving options open for a GOP brokered convention, but he had some very big-money supporters drop-out since the first of the year. The SC primary was the final straw.

China is hesitant to inject money in to this election cycle after certain connections were revealed between them and the Clinton Foundation. But that is not the only connection they have.

Turns out China and Israel are buddies when it comes to throwing money at certain candidates.

You know, it's funny.

The left says that Bernie couldn't bring socialism to the US, yet one GOP president will bring a theocracy, end all abortions, kill puppies, and take away pot.



Bernie cannot bring socialism to the US because it's already here. Has been since the founding of this nation.

As far as the GOP wanting to ban abortions and take away pot, that is not an unreasonable assertion. They Right Wing would love to ban both and if a GOP president is elected, as well as the Right keeping congress, they very well could try to go after those individual freedoms.


OMG! the end of the world, i tells ya!

I want to drink raw milk, straight out of the cow, without owning one.

will hillary or bernie relax that law?

Hillary would give you Monsanto and what their lobbyist want!

The Clintons and Monsanto have a cozy relationship, just like like a bunch of GMO peas in a pod.

I had copied this from a poster here a while ago.
I'm sorry i didn't get the posters name but someone can claim the credit.






Many people who may vote in the democratic primary election, if there is one and the general election in 2016 have no real knowledge of Mrs. Clinton or her accomplishments. As a public service, I thought I would provide some input regarding her triumphs for consideration.
When Bill Clinton was president, he allowed Hillary to assume authority over a health care reform. Even after threats and intimidation, she couldn't even get a vote in a democratic controlled congress. This fiasco cost the American taxpayers about $13 million in cost for studies, promotion, and other efforts.

Then President Clinton gave Hillary authority over selecting a female attorney general. Her first two selections were Zoe Baird and Kimba Wood – both were forced to withdraw their names from consideration. Next she chose Janet Reno – husband Bill described her selection as “my worst mistake.” Some may not remember that Reno made the decision to gas David Koresh and the Branch Davidian religious sect in Waco, Texas resulting in dozens of deaths of women and children.

Husband Bill allowed Hillary to make recommendations for the head of the Civil Rights Commission. Lani Guanier was her selection. When a little probing led to the discovered of Ms. Guanier’s radical views, her name had to be withdrawn from consideration.

Apparently a slow learner, husband Bill allowed Hillary to make some more recommendations. She chose former law partners Web Hubbel for the Justice Department, Vince Foster for the White House staff, and William Kennedy for the Treasury Department. Her selections went well: Hubbel went to prison, Foster (presumably) committed suicide (Really LOL!), and Kennedy was forced to resign.

Many younger votes will have no knowledge of “Travelgate.” Hillary wanted to award unfettered travel contracts to Clinton friend Harry Thompson – and the White House Travel Office refused to comply. She managed to have them reported to the FBI and fired. This ruined their reputations, cost them their jobs, and caused a thirty-six month investigation. Only one employee, Billy Dale was charged with a crime, and that of the enormous crime of mixing personal and White House funds. A jury acquitted him of any crime in less than two hours

Still not convinced of her ineptness, Hillary was allowed to recommend a close Clinton friend, Craig Livingstone, for the position of Director of White House security. When Livingstone was investigated for the improper access of about 900 FBI files of Clinton enemies (Filegate) and the widespread use of drugs by White House staff, suddenly Hillary and the president denied even knowing Livingstone, and of course, denied knowledge of drug use in the White House. Following this debacle, the FBI closed its White House Liaison Office after more than thirty years of service to seven presidents.

Next, when women started coming forward with allegations of sexual harassment and rape by Bill Clinton, Hillary was put in charge of the “bimbo eruption” and scandal defense. Some of her more notable decisions in the debacle was: She urged her husband not to settle the Paula Jones lawsuit. After the Starr investigation they settled with Ms. Jones.

She refused to release the Whitewater documents, which led to the appointment of Ken Starr as Special Prosecutor. After $80 million dollars of taxpayer money was spent, Starr's investigation led to Monica Lewinsky, which led to Bill lying about and later admitting his affairs.

Hillary’s devious game plan resulted in Bill losing his license to practice law for lying under oath to a grand jury and then his subsequent impeachment by the House of Representatives.

Hillary avoided indictment for perjury and obstruction of justice during the Starr investigation by repeating, “I do not recall,” “I have no recollection,” and “I don’t know” a total of 56 times while under oath.
leaving the White House, Hillary was forced to return an estimated $200,000 in White House furniture, china, and artwork that she had stolen.

What a swell party, ready for another four or eight year of this type low-life mess?
Now we are exposed to: the destruction of possibly incriminating emails while Hillary was Secretary of State and the “pay to play” schemes of the Clinton Foundation – we have no idea what shoe will fall next. But to her loyal fans – “what difference does it make?”

A big win in NH, a within margin of error loss in Nevada and a coin flip in Iowa.

Did I also hear she cut hi card , too?

The delegates thing is what matters, shes 'winning' there too, imagine that.

She won't win a popularity contest. To bad the people's vote hardly matters anymore.


It depends. She was given the super delegates by default, but they can and will change sides if Sanders shows up strong. Once you exclude the super delegates as none of them are actually committed yet Sanders is leading the race.

Just some food for thought:


After Super Tuesday, 19 states are expected to lean heavily Sanders while only 5 for Clinton. There are bound to be some surprises no doubt, but that is huge Sanders' home court advantage. The election will be won in the remaining 11 toss-up states.


It's a good read, super Tuesday is not the end.

When aborted fetuses start rising from the grave to seek human flesh and gay marriages cause volcanoes to erupt in major city centers, I'll get back to you.

But regardless of that, the GOP is already f*cking with abortions a hell of a lot more than the Democrats have f*cked with guns. Bill Maher explains it well.
Oh, and to anyone planning on going "waa waa Constitution second amendment", the 4th wants to have a bit of a word with you.
