Dems know that you can't have 60% against a Hillary nomination. Democrats know what's best for our proletariat.

Actually - I think it's pretty sad and why I moved away from the party. No one listens to what the people want - it's what the establishment wants. And unfortunately - people like you allow them to walk all over us. These politicians do not serve us - they serve their own interest - and you will continue to have more money and rights taken away by them - not because it's in your best interest - but because it's in theirs.

Maybe in your mind - bu I don't drink the Kool Aid that you do. It's too bad that people can't think for themselves and need someone else to mother them and tell them what to do. My prayers are with you that you find the strength to take that step and use that brain God gave you. You may end up staying with the Dems and that's fine but your statement " Dems good - rethugs bad - shows just how controlled you are.

Because at the bottom of the Democratic ranks, there remain a 10-20% that are too shallow, short-sighted, and just plain stupid to understand that the economy and the political process can't support the dream-world they want, and that there is no contingent of "rich Republicans" sitting on a pile of money that can pay for it.

This collection of ignorance is the foundation upon which the Democrats, and all Leftist parties build their coalition, I wish them no harm, and they might be useful as a counterweight against some of the excesses at the opposite pole, but they also represent one of the largest impediments to human progress along many paths, and have occasionally participated in some of the worst examples of man's inhumanity to man.

They are not much different, and no more realistic than the most dogmatic of the Bible-thumpers against which the Leftist contingent at this site rants constantly.

The system has been designed this way for many many years. If you don't like it then ask Bernie Sanders to exit the race, stop whining and all these bickering.

Rethugs spew that Trump is winning their nomination so far. They'll spew their spew.

Trump is a perfect example of why the Democratic Party has Super Delegates.

The Trump candidacy exposes the fact that anyone with enough money and a resonating message, regardless of how irresponsible or contrary to the a party's principles can enter the nominating process without the slightest allegiance to the party whose banner they are running under. I find that to be a fundamental organizational flaw regardless of what party we are concerned about.
