I just donated to Bernie Sanders

That is my first and possibly only political campaign contribution.

I like everyting I've read about him. I definitely feel a lot more groundswell for him than I do for Hillary, although that's admittedly myopic viewpoint. I'm still hoping Elizabeth Warren will pop into the race. Anyone know what's going on with the republicans other than Jeb and Rand? It's kinda insane but I've heard a lot of people talk about what a good president W was. A clinton vs Bush election is a definite possibility, though obviously not ideal. The best thing the republicans have ever done in the past 40 years is kowtowing to the Tea Party so much that a candidate who can get past the primary is unlikely to win the general election.

Incoming galttextwall imminent.

As we've ascertained voting independent is tantamount to voting Republican. Have fun with W's dumber little brother at the reigns.

I'm surprised in you, Geeno. Donating to political campaigns is strong shill tactics.

Same system here. Voting for anyone but the lesser of 3 evils (or two depending on the race in your riding) is a wasted vote.

Or I would vote for the Canadian Action party.


I already know, the federal election in the fall, I'm voting liberal, and it has nothing to do with whether I think the liberals are the best option and everything to do with them having the best chance at ousting the conservative incumbent in this riding.

Imagine if everyone that said that didn't vote for the lesser of 2 or 3 evils. If everyone that thought Ralph Nader was the best candidate and voted for him because he was the best candidate he would have been a two term president. Instead everyone voted for the lesser of 2 evils. Carry on.

Unless Dennis Kucinich or Lincoln Chaffee gets involved I can't see myself casting a primary ballot. Bernie sold his foreign policy soul for the Senate.
