Well unfortunately, this election is no longer about the issues, it’s about getting Trump out and restoring order, and quite honestly, I do see the value in stopping the bleeding and getting us back on track before we start making these grand sweeping changes. Read more

I think that attitude of “oh, so you want people to die” comes from the feeling that the problems we’re facing are very real, imminent, and that lives are genuinely at stake. Read more

Very interesting that you started this lengthy comment by noting, accurately, that whether to publish this book is “entirely their choice,” and somehow ended it by bemoaning people who “want to control what gets published or not” and hoping “the publishing world is as free as possible,” and presumably don’t realize Read more

For me, it’s not that all people who don’t like Warren are misogynistic because they don’t like her. It’s the continual refrain that “I like her/her policies, but I don’t think she can win because she’s a woman, so I can’t vote for her in the primary.” It is a misogynistic narrative that I’m just sick of. Hillary won Read more

Nothing you’re saying arguing against this particular situation is relevant to what I’m saying. I don’t have beliefs (???) about this situation; I have opinions that I stated and I only said what I said. You’re throwing in a lot of padding about what you think I might mean or feeeel or believe or have emotions about be Read more

New and young voters need to be more engaged, for sure, but let’s also not pretend the closure of literally hundreds of polling places and hours-long waits in so many ST states clustered where Sanders’ supporters were most likely to be found didn’t have more than a little something to do with turnout there. Democrats Read more

Books don’t deserve to be published just because someone wrote them. That’s why everything on earth ever written and submitted has not been published by a major publisher. Read more

Its not just people on the internet. I live in Hawaii. I work with tons of Bernie zealots. I debated with them in 16 and this year. In 16 they thought Hillary was an actual murderer and child molester. They believe all the Republican lies and spread them. One Bernie zealots actually said Hillary killed JFK. I Read more

A small contingent of Bernie supporters are very vocal, and Sanders and his campaign aren’t really doing a great job of discouraging them for doing this. Read more

This right here. I’ll just sit here very patiently waiting for extremely online Warren supporters move to support their most idealogically similar candidate, Sanders.

A ranked choice primary election on the same day nationwide is the only way to manage this fairly and democratically.  No single state can or should dictate the will of the others.

I was always a toss up between Sanders and Warren and said I'd vote for whoever had the most delegates, because I care more about the policies than the person implementing them. Talking to Warren voters, your demographic data completely tracked, but I also noticed kind of a lack of ideological consistency. I talked to Read more

The delegate gap between Biden and Sanders is far from insurmountable.

The DNC strongly favored Biden from the start, and it’s all the more clear now when you consider that the delegate count between Biden and Sanders is not all that far apart. Now that their favored candidate finally had a good day, we’re all supposed to give up and just “accept the inevitability,” even though over half Read more
