Hillary was the one that ran negative ads on Bernie and lied about him and his record but Bernie hates Trump? that makes sense.


endorsed the person that attacked you for months and lied about your record over and over but hate the guy that never talked bad about you? liberal logic!

All the illustrious credentials in the world cannot take the place of wise and responsible leadership.

It's not just about what one accomplishes, it's also about who gets them there and their values.
No one achieves anything on their own.

Bernie fell in line w/ the party, like he said he would do, so I don't think that necessarily means he thinks she's great.

You have not been listening.



Don't you worry. Trump will fix it all.
I don't find anything that Trump says to be racist and I have listened. People like to twist words to make something out of nothing. Only when you listen will you hear what people are really saying.


Bernie and Hillary are like the odd couple. You cannot oppose things one day that you are against to the core and then support them the next. It makes you a sell out and therefore should not be taken seriously because you are now showing that what you fought for in the beginning didn't really matter as much to you as you said it did. Bernie was everything Hillary was not when he was running, he was very much anti-Hillary and should be running as an independent if he really wanted to practice what he preached. Its all a game. I think Trump should run be running as an independent as well for that matter. Political parties divide the nation instead of bringing them together.

I will say that I don't quite understand why some of the Bernie supporters don't vote Trump. After all, he is an unknown quantity and has never run for political office before so I can't imagine it will be business as usual in Washington with a private sector guy at the helm to shake things up.

I was really hoping that Trump might go out on a limb and pick Ron Paul or a libertarian, but it doesn't look like that is going to happen.
I think alot of Bernie supporters will--some of them just aren't open to talking about it and getting ridiculed.

I'll vote for the candidate who's most likely to stop the US from being the rest of the world's *****.
So status quo is the way to go is what you are saying? I believe the Libertarian platform would help, but not solve the problem you point out, which I agree with. However I don't want to see government setting prices, that isn't right either. More transparency in healthcare everywhere is needed though so we can understand the actual cost and pricing behind what we are paying for, and that is part of what Gary Johnson is talking about.

See, I disagree with this. Trump, though certainly not your mainstream refined politician, is about as close to the political establishment as one can be without being a Clinton, Bush, or other household political name. He works the corrupt parts of the system for his own personal gain like few non-politicians can and he prides himself on this. He is the epitome of the 1% and yet somehow he's convinced many working class people that he is their leader and that he gives a single crap about them; he doesn't. All he's done is acted the part like a professional and painted himself as the leader of the working class, despite nothing in his history or his agenda actually showing this.

Trump is not an unknown, Trump is an impending disaster. The only thing more worrisome than the known financial corruption, sweetheart deals, and intimidation tactics of a Clinton presidency would be the financial corruption, sweetheart deals, and intimidation tactics of a Trump presidency. I say this because, even though I don't like Hillary Clinton, I will admit that her proposed social agendas align with mine. In addition, I think in that cold heart of hers, she does care about the American people. I believe some of her accomplishments have shown this. Trump on the other hand is a megalomaniac who sees others as nothing but objects to use for his own personal gain.

The two may not quite be different sides of the same coin, but they are different sides of similarly minted coins.

Default The way Clinton sqeeezed the endorsement out of Sanders has to make Sanders supporters cringe

Exactly what kind of an endorsement was it? Four words?

As they did during the whole primary, the DMV Totalitarian Party finally got what they wanted. They got the four words. Meaningless. Empty. Like beating a prisoner to get the words "I'm guilty".

Sanders didn't have to relent, but what kind of Party is this? What kind of candidate is she? Is this a victory for Clinton or is it just one of the worse moments in democratic history?
