This shows that Clinton is winning in the Primaries so far only because she is being propped

up by the DNC. The Democratic Establishment people want her, but the majority of the
American people prefer Sanders.

Both the Republican and Democratic Establishments are under the influence of Corporate

America's bribery and corruption. This is why our nation is morally and financially in the
gutter. Our GDP is up, but the profits are going mostly to the 0.01% of the super-rich
elites. The Average Joe is paid the lowest wages possible, and can barely make ends
meet without a second job.

Originally there were 17 Republicans and 6 Democrats running for the office of
President. Of these 23 candidates only 4 remain, and Bernie Sanders is the only one
who is actively fighting against this corrupting influence of these Corporations. He is the
only one with the honesty, integrity and guts to do so. What does that say about
the moral integrity of our politicians? Will the rest all be hoping to be in on the take
should they succeed in becoming president?

Well, yes. And Cruz's supporters are pro-Republican Estblishment, which means pro-Corporate

Business. And these latter are preparing to replace our democracy with an oligarchy. They
are already more than half-way there.

I tend to think Trump is for Trump only - and no one else. After his term of office, it's not
likely that he will have established a long-lasting movement to continue his policies. The
Republican Establishment will move back in again.

The problems Sanders has with the Democratic Establishment is matched (if not overmatched) by

the problems Trump has with the Republican Establishment. And both Establishments have been
losing large numbers of members. The Independents, on the other hand, are growing in size --
it has become larger than either of the two Major Parties. People finally are becoming fed up with
the feckless Establishments, and are leaving them. Enough is enough. This is also a part of the "math."

I don't know who is worse, Trump or Cruz. Both are dangerous -- Trump is more

in the open, Cruz is more sly.

It's a guess of who is better at outsmarting whom.........

1. Success of Pres. Obama's idea depends on the Republicans' stated option of not
evaluating any candidate picked by him. So he picked a Right Winger for them
to "obstruct," and also show their stupidity. This is the situation we find ourselves
in right now.

2. Other Republicans, like George F. Will, are protesting this Republican option. McConnell
might let this arguing back and forth go on for a long enough time to make it look good,
and then finally "reluctantly" gives in. And voila, we'll continue to have a Right Wing
Supreme Court for the next 10 years!

If it should happen as described above, the Republicans will have outsmarted Obama. Obama was taking the greater risk. It's McConnell now who has the real freedom of choice.

Of course Obama could still change his mind, and appoint a Democrat, waiting till the last moment (when McConnell announces that the Senate would interview the appointee). Do you think Obama would do this last-mentioned? It would make HIM (Obama) look not too good!

Yes, we can not only drink the water, we can also write with it.

I can give you a couple of examples: 1. DWS's crooked way of helping HRC by having very few

debates. They didn't want to give Bernie more exposure. And DWS chose most of these debates
to take place on weekends and before holidays, so that as few people would see them as possible.
2. Attempt at cheating during vote counting at Polk County. Are you going to deny these?


She's ahead of Bernie only because of all the unfair help she is getting. The Repubs. prefer Hillary

because they know she is easier to beat come General Election day. The Dem. Establishment
want her to win the Primaries because they believe in maintaining the political status quo the
way she does. They don't want the change Bernie has promised to bring about. And both of
these institutions have no qualms about using all the dirty tricks they can think of to defeat

Change is the last thing both of them want, and change is exactly the thing that the vast
majority want. Hillary may win the Primaries because of dirty tricks, but she will lose in the
General Election. The majority of the American people will be voting against her.

If Hillary wins the Primaries, the gain will go to the Repubs., and the loss will be ours. I
would love it to be wrong about this, but I don't think I'm wrong.

I think the biggest role in keeping the American people misinformed about Nordic countries (as well

as everything else) is played by the 90% Republican-owned (Corporate) news media. They are
probably the ones who came up with this line of reasoning, and they have been very successful
in having the people fooled, so that corporations can continue to rob the American people blind
with our present system of doing business.

Americans are an isolated people. Our closest neighbors are Mexico and Canada. For most people
both are too far away. I've lived many years in Europe. All one needs is to drive a couple of hours
and one is in a different country, with a different language and some difference in customs. Because
of this constant exposure to foreign influence, one can't help but become more open and accepting
of differences.

It would also be more difficult for people to become brain-washed news-wise, since one can listen
to and watch news from foreign countries just as easily as from one's own. It's not uncommon for
Europeans to speak a second or third language, which is quite uncommon here.
