I really wasn't planning on spending my senior years under a new form of government-

namely Corporatacracy. It appears we may well be headed bullet-train speed right into it. Whatever it is, I DO know that we aren't the same country we used to be, the one I was born into over 50 years ago, the one I was raised in.

Something happened along the way. And while many of the things happened before 9/11, many many more have happened after. Egregious things.

Whatever we are, we are not a democratic republic, of, by, and for the people any longer.

Citizen's United was just one of many bad decisions handed down by SCOTUS that set parts of the founding documents on fire.

I expect my leader to fight it with the ferocity it needs, regardless of whose feeling are hurt. It is that important. It isn't my fault that some don't understand. It says more about them than it does me. If you don't understand, then pick up a history book, a civics book, any government textbook and read and reflect until you do understand.

We have that leader already, but he is being hobbled by a self-appointed one who still can't close the deal. And a complicit news media. And of course by Debbie-gate, which was never fully investigated- the collusion was covered up in the truce deal that was made.

Yep. Quite a primary show this year. Can we stop this madness yet?

Wow. Tweety is upset about the Sanders campaign. It is evident. He is grilling Weaver like a prosecutor.

This is an actual, verifiable quote. It has been so verified. It was said in public.

You can find reference to it on reputable internet sites of renown. There is no legitimate reason to dispute it.
I will take his advice and counsel over yours.

This trumps any economic issue- (it's impact on Unions notwithstanding, for reasons that the SCOTUS has affirmed those rights over and over again).

Alert abuse continues! I'm watching the HRC group! Berners, log in please!

We need as many logged in as possible at all times to help weight the juries! As it stands I won't get called to jury. My 100% transparency is 0 now after the Great Alert-abuse Juried Submission Plan worked. Remember this...we all need to at least be logged in through to convention whenever possible. This abuse is stifling debate, dissent, discussion and ideas. Not helpful.

Call for 'Revolution' Still Reverberating as Sanders, Clinton Head Neck and Neck Into Indiana

Call for 'Revolution' Still Reverberating as Sanders, Clinton Head Neck and Neck Into Indiana

"This is the beginning of the revolt against the establishment, not the end," political analyst says

byAndrea Germanos, staff writer

Days ahead of Indiana's May 3 primary, a new poll shows Democratic presidential rivals Bernie Sanders and Hillary Clinton neck and neck while observers foresee the Vermont senator's impact being felt long after the nomination is secured.

According to the NBC News/Wall Street Journal/Marist poll, Clinton leads among likely Indiana primary goers 50 percent to Sanders' 46 percent. But that lead is within the poll's margin of error of 4.6 percentage points for Democrats.

The poll also shows Sanders with a greater edge over Clinton in a hypothetical general-election match-up against Donald Trump. The Republican front-runner has a seven-point lead over Clinton in such a square-off, but just a single point lead over Sanders

Also on Sunday, the Sanders campaign announced that it had brought in $25.8 million in April, with the average donation being just under $26. And while the amount is far less than the $44 million haul in March, or $43.5 million in February, the campaign still touted it as surpassing the average monthly total of $17 million.
