Re: Whose side are you on?

You cannot be for the drug companies and senior citizens and veterans. You cannot be on the side of workers and support those corporations that have thrown millions on the street.

Re: We Need More

You touch on an ironic reality of US politics. If you think that the average citizen is going to "get the money out of politics" by refusing to contribute to any candidate you are sorely mistaken.

Re: Voxplaining Liberal Smugness

that the style?

Whoops. "That the style of argumentation in politics matters as a general principle." I must have accidentally truncated my post.

Re: Voxplaining Liberal Smugness

But more importantly, why does the reason for the disagreement matter to the style of the argument? Tell me - What difference does it make if I assume that the GOP believes what they believe based on moral difference and policy divergence instead [more]

Re: One way Trump's better as the 2016 Nominee

The most likely second ballot winner is Cruz, who a member of the GOP establishment just called Lucifer. You really believe Paul Ryan or Mitch McConnell would get a warm welcome from this crowd?

Re: GoT - S6-E1 ..

The issue is more that, Dorne is written quite well in the books, but the HBO writers are slashing massive amounts of that story-line, which forces them to change much of it.

Re: Sanders' missed opportunity

He could have begun with subprime and plausibly traced all the way back to 40 acres and a mule, explaining the modern problem of wealth inequality as (among other things) a still-extant failure of the Civil Rights movement, an ancient wrong still [more]

I don't see Kasich beating Cruz next time. And if not him, then who?


Oh, I think Kasich will do better than Cruz, if he could survive whoever wins Iowa and South Carolina. I don't think it will be Cruz. Cruz is now a spent [more]

Re: One way Trump's better as the 2016 Nominee

DH and I were discussing this last night. We really really don't understand the votes for Trump.

It's not that hard to understand, I think.

Re: One way Trump's better as the 2016 Nominee

Because that means Cruz will be the clear front-runner in 2020...

Oh, I doubt that. This campaign is illustrating - abundantly - Cruz' failings as a candidate. Whatever the opposite of charisma is, Cruz has it by the bucketful. Cruz: [more]

Obama is trying to make some modest improvements in Medicare to lower drug prices. Pharma-funded DEMs are pushing back big time.

Never mind that the answer plays into the right-wing narrative that the Democrats have bought the black vote with 50 years of handouts that really haven't accomplished much beyond institutionalizing a culture of entitlement.

Re: Sanders supporters: Look to the general

Point being, my reasons for supporting Bernie Sanders are primarily based in his laser focus on separating big-money influence from politics.

Re: Three-way race

What a funny political system we have. The party in control of the House could game it by running three regional candidates, none of whom strong enough to win nationally, but strong enough to deny the other party 270 EC votes.
