what's going on with all these voting purges in upcoming primary states?

the hartmann program was going on and on last week about how people have been taken off the voter rolls. i had problems, now a friend of mine is having problems. is this a trend?

NY Times: To make real change, Bernie Sanders needs his young revolutionaries to run for Congress.

“Revolution” is Bernie Sanders’s go-to word. The candidate for the Democratic presidential nomination uses it to celebrate primary victories and explain losses, to rally his young supporters and, most of all, to answer sticky questions about how he’ll get what he wants.

Asked in Wednesday’s debate how he would address climate change, given opposition by Republicans in Congress, he answered: “I’m the only candidate who says no president, not Bernie Sanders, can do it all. You know what we need? We need a political revolution in this country.”

But, as he seemed to acknowledge, revolutions are typically bottom-up, not top-down, events. Mr. Sanders’s campaign is powered by $30 contributions and an army of young volunteers, but there are not enough elected office holders in Congress or in statehouses to carry out his revolution through new laws or policies. And that’s the big difference between running an inspiring campaign and actually governing.

workers' rights are women's rights. raising the minimum wage is overwhelmingly a women's issue (although I guess minorities can lay claim as well).
i'm so pissed that letting mr sanders finish his effing sentence is considered "sexist". hillary hates me. she will not protect my social security and will not fight for me to get a decent paying job. what has she ever done to fight for the rights of women. her husband is a freaking sexual harrasser and all accounts point to the fact that she helped cover up his worst behavior. this primary is female class warfare: get behind our corporatist candidate, because women. lol no!
