    That’s perfectly fair. But if you feel your candidate was blatantly ripped off and you decide not to support a fucked up election system, that’s fair too. I just don’t agree with the pressure the “vote blue no matter who” people put on other Dem voters, as if it is their civic duty to partake in something they don’t agree with.

    I'd vote for Sly over Trump and that's saying something.

    After that last incident with you, I told you to leave me alone. I meant it.

    You are banned from me. Don't quote me or try to contact me, ever.

    He had trouble in debate when challenged by other Democrats who didn't scream, lie, insult or call names. The occupant of the white house will do all of those, can he hold his own?

    The fact that Pete is backed by so many billionaires should be a red flag for anyone considering him.

    Mine too, but I'm not bothered by having anybody having laugh at his expense. Hopefully he'll have the last laugh.

    Still don't accept why some think just because someone is very rich, that arbitrarily makes them a bad choice for POTUS.

    In this case it has more to do with the precedent of buying elections than it does the specific person. Bloomberg isn't all that bad in general.

    I like Pete also. A Pete / Amy coalition would be cool. Im not counting Joe out just yet as super Tuesday could rejuvenate the old guy!

    We need change. We need a drastic shifting of mindset and an empowerment of the people. We also need someone who is well versed in the politics of DC who can cut through the bullshit to push progressive agendas to move the country forward.

    That ain't Pete. Dude can't even win his own state.

    I want Bernie/Yang. That needs to be the ticket.

    The socialist tag is such a farce. He's not a commie for Godsakes just because he wants people to be able to pay for healthcare and students to have education opportunities without breaking the bank.
