I wouldn't put much credibility in someone who "claims" he left the Democratic party and now spouts the same nonsense you can hear every day on Fox/ Linbaugh and company.

So that's what's been happening to Rush Limpballs's hair....

:big laugh:

Does beg the question, though: what is an "American name"? (yeah, we know, White European, preferably British--just throwin' that out there)

@TheProctologist, @GeeS, @Teutone: the last few posts have pretty much demonstrated the point. We really do have a lot in common, and we really should be working more closely to fix the political situation in America. I was one of those Ron Paul supporters (among the Republican candidates) who also later supported Bernie Sanders. The same is true of Bob Sarvis here in Virginia during his Gubernatorial run. Gary Johnson and Bob Sarvis are both former Republicans who got sent out to pasture for not towing the Bible-thumping line, so they figured they'd have better success as Libertarians. Ron Paul got a surprising number of young independents for him, due to his policies of basically, "live, and let live". Look what happened to all three; they all basically got run out of the GOP. Hence, the notion that the Libertarians (capital "L") are just Republicans under a different name. But it's not necessarily the case that they're social conservatives, e. g. Gary Johnson. The philosophy, at least for little "l" libertarians and even plenty of Capital-L Libertarians, does appear to be basically, "live, and let live," or as the Wiccans say, "an' ye harm none, do as ye will." We really should work together more than we do.

Among the Democrats, look at Ralph Nader and how the Democrats treated him. Same goes for former Sen. Carol Moseley Braun; they basically ran her out, too, in favour of the Maria Cantwells and Patty Murrays of the world. And of course, look what they did to The Bern. The Dems, too, seem to accept only their Party dogma. Ick.

And that's why we, as voters, need to do something about it. First thing is for us to stop the "divide & conquer" nonsense that we keep letting our politicians and news media inflict upon us. I like the way GeeS put it:

"Let's first agree to what needs fixing before we argue about ways to best go about it."
As legal alien resident I am in the fortunate position to be able to criticize, without being eligible to vote. Right now, that's a blessing :wink

You sure?

My Bernie thread has over 500 posts while you planted 5 temperate post. If you were a supporter you were a very muted one...

I say this because it seems to be fashionable nowadays to claim support for Bernie back then. Almost like he should won by a landslide if true.
Yep, quite sure.

Interesting...I thought you'd know better than to equate thread post count in a specific BenzWorld thread with support of a candidate. If, however, that is your view, then I suggest you listen to my early-2016 podcast episode about Feeling The Bern.

You're right in that he should've won by a landslide. Unfortunately, the DNC powers-that-be did everything they could to prevent that, to the detriment of this country. As you correctly put it, it takes a special kind of person to defend Hillary Clinton.

@GreenT, I just PM'd you with the link. Keeps the forum on topic since it's also 2A-related. :)

minority rights should always be protected but in elections it makes no sense that minority rules-

popular vote will certainly happen
