Which is why we need to track down the injured beast and put it out of its misery.

The 2 losers should run as independents. Shit can the electoral votes and go by popular vote only. I think Bernie would kick ass.

Ted Cruz is just so deeply unlikable and it really boggles my mind that there are people who are actually excited about his campaign.

I mean have you seen his family? They look like the munsters.

Everyone votes on one day.

Two years in a four year cycle is exhausting even to view.

These aint even the big one. This is just the round where we get to see crazy up close and personal. The general is in November, where 18% of white America gets to decide on which candidate they would like to see run the country and then the powers that be will install whichever puppet best suits their agenda...

Some day campaign finance reform will happen -

what we need is a system where you have public financing of elections, but there has to be some clever way to make it so that you only have a handful of people, in the end, but at the same time you have to allow people to support a candidate (with donations) ... in the early stages, so that the people who get to the final rounds actually have popular support.

But once each party picks a candidate (or maybe the top 2 from each party) (but then what to do about the smaller third parties) and those top people get the same amount of campaign money from a taxpayer funded pool - this would require some serious limits on PAC spending- and would require new laws that would alter but not completely remove the Supreme Court's decision in citizens united- the whole point of that decision is that free speech should not be limited- so , how to not limit free speech, when the people who tend to speak the loudest have the most money, and drown out the others who want to speak just as badly.... tough questions, and as much as I love to think that Bernie would actually fix it... Im pretty sure Obama said the same stuff when he was running, as did Kerry, as did McCain... so every single person says they want campaign finance reform, until they are elected.

The thing that Bernie did imo was to really make it mainstream accepted that campaign finance as we know it is one of the biggest problems and perhaps THE problem with our current system... its why people only grudgingly support Hillary - because she is basically owned by Goldman Sachs so how can she be for the little american worker? But the reality is, they all have this same problem, and unless the public finances elections I don't see how to change it.
