I find your lack of faith disturbing

Interesting choice of slur...

Clearly conservatives are truly awful people.

Democracy is PROBABLY DOOMED anyway, BS supporters need to get over themselves

What can one man possibly accomplish against the massed might of the Borg and Sauron?

Make it so you fools.

If you are going to vote for the establishment candidate why are you on Democratic Underground?

The name Democratic Underground has two components, Democratic and Underground, a certain group always wants to only mention the Democratic part and forget the Underground part.

If this is just another establishment-supporting website then a lot of us have been in the wrong place for a long time because the establishment is and has been an ongoing disaster for America and the American people for at least the last thirty years.

After being here in 2002-2003 and reading the despair and anger over the Iraq war I have real trouble understanding how any DUer can vote for someone who touted, supported and voted for that war over someone who correctly voted against it. Cheering for war is the establishment position, standing up against war is the Underground position.

"Well, you should have spoken up"

That's what will be said about ten nanoseconds after Sanders fails to get on the ballot in New Hampshire due to his supporters following instructions to calm down and relax since Sanders PROBABLY WILL get on the ballot.

If a week is an eternity in politics?

Then how long is three months?

It ain't over til it's over.

Will gun control be as big an issue in the general as it is becoming in the Dem primary?

I tend to think we'll hear almost nothing about gun control in the general except of course in a negative manner from Republicans but I'm interested in what DU thinks about it.

My neighbor had hip replacement surgery a week ago, I went over to keep him company a bit today

So we were sitting there with the TV on but down low and discussing a pile of books he had on his coffee table for entertainment while he's laid up, his wife was in their computer room with the door closed talking on the phone with one of her friends when I hear her hollering "I'M FEELING THE BERN!". The husband looks at me funny and kind of wonders out loud what the hell that was about and before I could answer he says Bernie Sanders and I nodded.

Now this is a sixty one year old white woman in the deep south who I was positive would vote Hillary because she's a nurse and pro choice largely because of what she's seen. I was actually surprised she even knows who Sanders is then I realized she watches Ellen and spends a lot of time on Facebook.

Yeah, I know, anecdata but it brightened my whole day.



Why have Democrats enthusiastically disenfranchised their most loyal voting bloc?

The statistics are damning...

http://www.democraticunderground.com/10027307522

According to US Bureau of Justice statistics, between 1980 and 2013, while blacks were 12% of the population, blacks constituted 30% of those arrested for drug law violations and nearly 40% of those incarcerated in all U.S. prisons. Thus some 20,000,000 African-American men have been sent to prison for non-violent “crimes” in the past forty years.


And the Democratic establishment has cheered the drug war, voted for it and made it their own.

Imagine what twenty million more votes for the Democratic party would have accomplished politically, why would any political party want to throw away that sort of voting base?

All for what turns out to be a "big lie" based almost entirely on racism.

One of the reasons I prefer Bernie is that he, unlike the vast majority of Democratic office holders, is not a drug warrior, he wants to end the insanity of the drug war not for political gain but because it's the right thing to do.
