Socialism fails because of humans, not because of Socialism.

Ah, Capitalism is awful as well, by the way. I hate both of them. And Communism, before you get into that.

How do you feel about an anarcho-syndicalist commune where we all take turns to be a sort of executive officer for the week?

Might be interesting. Depends. Would we lay down simple ground rules for the executive officer (who I am essentially imagining as a dictator with a time limit) before commencing the cycle?
Such as more refined versions of:
No torture.
No extending your week.
No weakening the power of the executive officer.
No transferring the power of the executive officer.
No modifying the system whence the executive officer is determined.
No executions.
So on and so forth.

Of course, it would be a human system, and therefore it would still fail. All the limitations, clauses, and regulations in the world will not stop that.
It is human.
It will fail.

That does not mean, however, that it would be worse than whatever it is that we have now. Perhaps it would be better. Perhaps not.
I think whatever it is that Sanders will do is better. That is why I support him.

Ted Cruz squeeked by in Texas I see. I was hoping he would lose his home state. That would've been hilarious.

Bernie didn't do to bad for basically running as an independent, since we all know who the DNC actually supports.

Texas had electoral fraud. He cheated.

I am just stunned, absolutely STUNNED, there are people who will actually vote for Hillary Clinton! It just floors me!

I don't care what political persuasion you are (republican, democrat, independent, etc.), that people will actually vote for such a dishonest, deceitful person of such questionable character, a person who has absolutely no compunction what so ever to say one thing and actually do something completely opposite, a person who will do or say absolutely ANYTHING to get elected, is truly shocking to me. This person has absolutely "zero" intention of representing the people who would elect her. I just can't believe there are people out there who can actually identify with her so patently obvious charade.

I just can't believe people can't see through her façade and see her for what she truly is.

I don't know who I will vote for, but I do know this; Hillary Clinton is the last person in the UNIVERSE I would ever cast a vote for! Attila the Hun would be a better candidate. Unbelievable!

I could have written your exact same post, except insert Donald Trump's name.

Doesn't mean I don't agree with you on Clinton, but it's the exact same situation with Trump.

What is wrong with people?

Yet some would also replace Clinton with Sanders.

We are all trapped within the illusion of this reality. I am picking Sanders because he is the correct choice when viewed through mine own eyes, but others see differently. For a myriad of reasons, economic status, upbringing, age, sheer stupidity, the exact causes I cannot really say I know. But they are different.

The one thing I can say I know is that we are all attempting to attain a better future, though our methods and ideology may differ, we are fighting for the same thing.
I may be wrong, but I hope I am right. I believe in my own decisions, so I will stand with them.

Very eloquent post. I almost thought you were TrueBrit, though you did not conduct yourself quite so... Flamboyantly, as he is wont to do.

I also share your persuasion. Since the beginning of the race, there has been something about Clinton that disgusts, repulses, and horrifies me. My intuition is something I trust, and my intuition tells me that nominating Clinton will lead to, to steal game terminology, an "Bad End." There is something deeply wrong with that woman, and it scares me that even I do not know what it is.
I would have to say, that given the choice of either Clinton or Hitler, I would have to seriously ponder my selection. I would, perhaps, even err towards the latter.
All I can really say is that I believe that if that woman becomes president, bad things will happen, like you could not imagine.

Except Sanders has never been investigated or interrogated by a senate committee, he has never been caught taking money from big banks/wallstreet for "speaking fees", he has not been proven to be inconsistent with his ideology. Love him or hate him for his ideology, he is not a suspicious character the way Hillary and Trump are.

I could see why some people would vote for Cruz (super religious) or for Carson or for someone like Ron Paul, even though I don't agree with their ideology or views. But to make a conscious decision to vote for someone proven to be dangerously inconsistent/without scruples and/or a suspected con man - it just amazes me.

Those are all well and good until Arthur, King of the Britons shows up and we get repressed.

I think the most shocking results from yesterday's Super Tuesday numbers is that Ben Carson got 3 delegates! How did that happen?!!!

Wife and two children. The thought they were voting for his Orangenish but hit the wrong buttons.

Oh, I agree with you. I'm just pointing out that we can never be sure. I find it extraordinarily unlikely that Sanders is dishonest on the level that Clinton and Trump obviously are, but I do find it possible.
There's really no reason to vote for Clinton over him (aside from her being a woman, which is a stupid reason to begin with and I honestly also think that's a strike against her. I would assume the American people want the first woman president to be awesome, not Clinton.)

Her supporters claim she'll be able to "get things done", but really, she won't. She doesn't. She'll fail. She just sort of... Sucks.

You mean write up something like the bill of rights?

Hopefully something with a bit more power that the executive officer won't simply be able to look at and say "ehhh, but I'd really rather not listen to what it says", but yes. Something similar to the bill of rights.

I don't really agree with this. Trump has clearly been dishonest in his past, however he is certainly more up front than Clinton. Take Planned Parenthood as an example. It would be easy for him to come out strong and call for them to be investigated, have all their funding cut and for executives to be put in jail. That is what the Republican establishment seem to want to hear, but he won't say it. Right or wrong, that takes at least some conviction and shows he won't go to any extreme to mislead people to get votes.

Clinton will literally say anything and even goes as far as to change her accent depending on who she is talking to. She is a honed political animal, and I mean that in the most unkind of ways.
