Bernie was booed by house establishment democrats pissed off that he wont suspend his campaign....

Precious.🎇


...it will be an honor to cast my vote for him in the fall😊

That's called a full throated conscious clear, principled vote which separates us from those democrats who will be secretly or openly voting for trump---- trumpheads.

Oh, you think you're principled. Bless your heart!

So, I changed my registration to No Preference and grumpily concede that I am no longer represented by either party. I guess I'm a Kennedy Democrat, or maybe a Kemp Republican. Sad times.

Well, function follows form, in this case. With our system of governance (first past the post, federalism, Republic, Presidential), we are doomed to have a two-party system. If you look at history, you can see that there are brief period where there is a partly-viable third party that either gets destroyed, subsumed in another party, or becomes one of the two parties (the current GOP). That's it- there's no way in our system to have more than two for any sustained length of time.

Given that, we all must map our interests on to the party that is least offensive to us, I guess.

To quote HRC's airplane-visiting hubby, "I feel your pain."

I was a registered Democrat for 20 years. At the time (mid 90s) I felt that my political views were more in line with the Democrats. Not totally in line, but more so than the Republicans.

Over the last 20 years the Republicans moved ever further towards over-delivering for the Chamber of Commerce/National Review types while simultaneously pandering to Evangelicals, NRA members, etc. It was a weird mixture of bedfellows that I never felt comfortable with.

The Democrats, OTOH, moved in some ways politically right (neoliberalism, interventionist foreign policy) while doing their own pandering to obnoxious politically correct "activists" (ie; rich kids from Dartmouth who like to lecture you about income inequality) and playing identity politics to the hilt.

I never liked this combination either.

So, I changed my registration to No Preference and grumpily concede that I am no longer represented by either party. I guess I'm a Kennedy Democrat, or maybe a Kemp Republican. Sad times.

As I've said before, I'm not a Clinton fan. In fact, the legitimate criticism from Comey was well deserved and illustrates why I'm not a Clinton fan. All politicians lie, but she does it clumsily.


You know, it's a weird thing. I'm not even so much of a Democrat by desire, as much of a not-Republican by circumstances. A Rockefeller Republican that, by default, has become a Democrat (although still registered as an Independent).

And when it comes to Clinton, I'm really meh. I could not be less enthused - although she was a better choice than Sanders, but only because Sander was only ever a protest candidate. The scary thing, though, is that there isn't a large number of prominent national Democrats to choose from. Seriously- I still couldn't pick out O'Malley in a lineup.

Warren? Booker? ummm....... See what I mean? The scary thing isn't that Clinton is the nominee, or that she is so uninspiring, it's that I have a hard time picking a better person for this cycle. *sigh*

Loki, by now we know that Cinnamon never lets facts get in the way of a good story.

Clinton is destroyed, just like Nixon: Except that every single major poll shows her ahead of Trump by 5-10. When she wins in November Cinnamon and her types will start talking about the inevitable impeachment because she failed to screen her phone calls or something.

As I've said before, I'm not a Clinton fan. In fact, the legitimate criticism from Comey was well deserved and illustrates why I'm not a Clinton fan. All politicians lie, but she does it clumsily.

What I don't get about the Cinnamons of the world, though, is the rabid nature of their anti-Clinton sentiments. When you get to the point where you think she's actually worse than Trump, or that the outcomes under either administration would be interchangeable, then you've left the world of reality and have camped in the world of personality-driven emotional outbursts.

I'm not happy about my choices in November, but if it is actually a close election I'm amazed, AMAZED, that a Sanders supporter would throw away a vote that could be used against Trump. Sanders himself has said that defeating Trump is the #1 priority.

Lol, James comey and the FBI have completely destroyed hillarys credibility.

You better read what he said-- I've been telling you what they would find for a while now and i am vindicated.....i dont give a shite that Obama is not going to prosecute.

I accepted that trump would be president a long time ago.

I still will write in bernies name for president.....its about principle.




Clinton is finished.

Truth and facts hurt dont they?

This has been such fun. ;)


Keep posting though lol....you are a fun punching bag.lololol

Qui, moi? I don't need to bother refuting your points- they refute themselves! Seriously, you've been banging this drum that blah blah Sanders will win the nomination blah blah Clinton will be indicted blah blah Trump won't win. And, as everyone else already said- it doesn't matter what happens, you'll just move on to the next point. I'm quite sure that next year, after we have President Clinton, you'll be saying, "Ha, that's what I always said, but I've got my popcorn ready because of (whatever, we're laughing at you)."

Seriously, u mad bro? Clowned again? Just to think; by gracing us with your presence, you have deprived some poor village of their idiot.

Now I will write in sanders name in November...hopefully trump will only get one term.

Cinnamon Troll's stages of popcorn-

1. Denial. But Sanders is still going to win! I don't understand math, so ... delegates? California?
2. Anger. But Clinton is really Nixon!
3. Bargaining. Despite reality, something something Sanders will still win the nomination.
4. Depression. Where is my popcorn now?
5. Acceptance. Boy, I hope that Trump wins!
