Personally though, I think she's one of the biggest evils in the race, with a proven track record of failed foreign policy, but hey...


Trump and Hillary are two evil:The difference is she already has proven it and she has had her chance to do good and hasn't. She is the establishment,more of the same, lobbyist wh0rE, full of political scandals and currently under FBI investigation for at minimum bad judgement.

At least with trump their is a .1% chance of some changes in the right direction where she has proven their is none with her.

Yeah it's really embarrassing when your chosen candidate sweeps five states in a single day. Oh the humiliation......NOT

Putin, Castro,Chavez,Hussein have swept their whole countries with 100% of the votes. Hitler got majority as well. Its what happens when the system is corrupted and they want the most corrupted to win.

So what was your justification again to vote for a family with a proven track record of lying even under oath, has been impeached, has been in politics for numerous decades without fixing one thing, and is taking millions from the same people who she claims to have taken on like (Energy,Healthcare,Insurance,wall-street) which are all still cluster F$%$ ?

You sound like you should take a break from the keyboard for a bit. Or maybe politics as a whole.

You're a hypocrite because you say Trump killing and torturing is wrong, and then call for his murder. That's a fact.

If you can't make that connection and accept your own hypocrisy then you have much bigger problems than anyone here can help you with.

Best of luck.

So , what? We're supposed to wait until he starts murdering people (like he makes it clear the US will) before we do something about it?

That will just make his following love him more.

He is a terrible guy and needs to die if he's elected. He will ruin this country, and the world potentially.

I'm not trolling, you are if you believe that its actually hypocrisy.

Uh, the Clinton's have left a trail of bodies of dead associates for decades. No deaths have been attributed to Trump.

Assuming that this entire voting process isn't 100% rigged, I find it ridiculously embarrassing that Americans would be so willing to prop up a political dynasty. How far we have fallen...

My facebook feed Is vomit inducing. And the Bernie fans can't get enough of calling everybody else racists over and over, You make Bernie the last person on earth I want to vote for when you talk like this.

Trump Gets my vote because Democrats hate him. Jesus freak Republicans hate him. Sounds like my kind of guy

That is why I want to see Bernie win it , he is the best of the B$ candidates we got.

He might be the nicest, but when considering his economics, he is the worst candidate we've got. His policies, his class warfare, his idealism, and his bureaucratic tendencies are the last thing a country in close to $20trillion in debt needs. If you're a libertarian you've probably read Hayek or Friedman, and Bernie should be opposed for the very same reasons proposed in their work, or we'll be on the road to serfdom.

Corporate taxes in America are some of the highest in the world. The 1% also pay the most taxes. Yet Sanders wants the US to be more like Denmark, a country with no minimum wage and much less corporate taxes than the US. It's hilarious.

The reason I prefer Bernie over the rest is because he is the only one that is primarily putting focus on corruption and conflict of interest. He will also likely have a lame-duck congress so the socialist thing doesn't scare me.
a reply to: interupt42

Bernie, is not someone who wouldn't negotiate with congress. Not only that, I think more representatives in congress like Bernie. Cruz is the most disliked in congress and I think Trump has already made enough enemies against him in congress.

Trump would have gotten my support if he showed some intelligence on the issues, and didn't retract his lies every two days. His personality is obnoxious.

If Bernie didn't come out and declare he was a socialist democrat, I think he would have had a much better chance on defeating Clinton.

I like many others Americans would have liked to have seen an intelligent, business minded, issue oriented, a good communicator, against political and corporate corruption, is honest, respectful, well liked and above all someone who could relate more to the average hard working American. Unfortunately, Trump is not that non-establishment candidate.

Unfortunately, every election we're faced with candidates who are rich millionaires. They're established politicians, and do nothing but tow the party line. The reason we get this poor selection of candidates is because of the money and political connections needed to launch a campaign. The media also gives little air time to anyone who is not recognizable or part of the political system.

If Trump is elected president, I hope in the end I'm proven wrong.

I love all the accusations by the right here that the Sanders supporters will come out and defend Hillary if she gets the nomination.

It's true, everyone I know (in real life) would vote for Hillary over Trump. As said before, better to kick the can down the road then kick a dynamite-loaded can off a cliff.

But I don't see anyone who was in the Bernie camp turning around and promoting Hillary as any sort of savior. Or even as being a representative of the left.

And I don't see anyone stooping to the level of voting for Hillary for the reason that half the people voting for Trump are... just to piss off the other side. Voting out of spite or just due to misplaced anger is shameful.

There is a lot of confidence that Trump is going to steal from the left in the general... with people like Palin campaigning for him? Unlikely. There is going to be an unprecedented amount of anti-Trump voting. But I will say that without Bernie, getting the youth out is going to be a bit tougher.

Today I was listening to NPR "Here and Now" - they talked a lot about the Tuesday results.

Bernie is NOT DONE. And they acknowledged how his participation is influencing Hillary....and his intention to keep doing so - she needs the pressure.

They also talked about how he's not out of the race yet as far as chances to win the nomination. There are REALLY IMPORTANT Western states coming up, and southwestern. She has already used up her "shoo in" deep-south and now the real contest begins.

Missouri was still not declared as to who won this afternoon. Considering Obama is a Chicagoan, and she and Bill and they are so "tight" - it doesn't surprise me that she squeaked by there in Illinois.....but then again, the Bernie supporters were the ones who are being blamed for Trump's rally being cancelled.

Don't write Bernie off yet - we still have a long way to go - and those "superdelegates" can change their minds at the last minute.

As for Cruz, well - not gonna happen.

The GOP in general, however, is doubling down on "anyone but Trump", and many of them are also "anyone but [the universally despised] Cruz"......

It will wind up being down to Kasich and Trump; and the GOP won't allow Trump. Or they are talking about putting Paul Ryan (of all sleazeballs) in there as the "brokered" candidate.......

The implosion of the GOP that I foresaw back during the Midterms is coming to fruition......
the GOP is going down. Down. Not only at the Federal Level in DC, but in the states, too......Kansas is in chaos.....

These upstart young guys (Rubio and Cruz) are going down. They were given a fair enough chance. We are now done with Floridians, and the vast majority of Evangelical voters (except perhaps in Idaho). From here, we go west.....
Bernie already won Colorado. Trump isn't stopping.

Buckle in, folks. It ain't over til the nomination song is sung.......

Because Hilary is and always will be constantly attacked pretty much weekly on this site. I can think of two members who love to post anti Hilary threads so they got us all covered.

Why do other attack Trump so much? Because he's new to the political arena and he's polarizing the population with his flip flopping and outrageous comments. Basically, he's making himself an easy mark and that's exactly what he wants. But for every Anti Trump thread there are two Pro Trump threads (and 99% of my statistics are based on perception).

I really don't understand Bernie supporters who say they will vote Trump over Hillary.

First off.. Bernie and Trump are complete opposites. Bernie despises Trump.

Secondly.. Bernie and Hillary's platforms are nearly identical outside of 2 or so issues. Read them on their websites.

Thirdly.. Sanders supports peace and fellowship and love. Trump preaches fear, hate, and aggression.

Lastly... Hillary has been there and done it before.. she has experience in high level politics.. and when her and Bill were in the whitehouse.. our country was doing great.

So why would you vote for Trump? He's the antithesis of everything going Sanders believes in..

Sanders himself with throw his support behind clinton.

He will probably help Hillary run a stop Trump campaign

Trump is getting record amounts of dems switching over because of her. I said it too, Bernie fans are wasting time with Trump, Hllary is his immediate threat, why don't they shut her down ?

Bernie is an independent caucusing with democrats. Trump is an independent caucusing with republicans. Neither take money from Goldman Sachs, they both have free will, Hillary does not. Besides, the racist remarks she has said over the years are all compiled on video and going to the kkk directors funeral was disgusting and being under fbi investigation doesn't help. Sometimes its not about the person but the idea, of course some people love Trump but most of his voters don't, they love the idea of having a president that isn't commanded by her backers.

Good OP, you're very correct.

For one, here's how the media that supports Hillary, treats Bernie:
How the 'New York Times' Sandbagged Bernie Sanders

The New York Times ran a piece about Bernie Sanders Monday, a sort of left-handed compliment of a legislative profile. It was called "Bernie Sanders Scored Victories for Years Via Legislative Side Doors."


Now, Steinhauer's piece wasn't all flattering. This is, after all, the New York Times, which has practically been an official mouthpiece for the Clinton campaign this election season.

Though we both operated on the same set of facts — i.e., that Sanders had an extensive history of building coalitions to pass amendments — Steinhauer implied that Sanders often acted as a kind of lefty obstructionist, using Republicans to thwart more centrist initiatives. "Mr. Sanders is not unlike Tea Party Republicans in his tactics, except his are a decaf version," she wrote.
