"I wish more people were high information voters"

According to this Washington Post editorial, "Ted Cruz’s campaign is fueled by a dominionist vision for America"

https://www.washingtonpost.com/national/religion/ted-cruzs-c ... 9_story.html

Here's the wiki entry on Dominion Theology:

Scary stuff & anti-American (separation of church & state).

Oh, bookfan, I learned all about this the other day! From the fabulous Samatha Bee (reporter extraordinaire!)!

Before giving up on Bernie, read this:

http://m.huffpost.com/us/entry/20-reasons-sanders-voters-are-justifiably-angry_b_9544744.html

This makes me furious. Bernie is not that far behind in reality. All he needs is to be able to convince a reasonable number of the Democratic superdelegates to support him. That is far from impossible.

For those who can do so and are so inclined, please consider chipping in. California is an expensive place to work in.

Bernie has been so shortchanged by the media.

Maybe #BirdieSanders will break through the media wall! :-)

It has certainly broken the internet!

Haha! Not completely. ;-)

Bernie is ... how to put this? Less anti-2nd Amendment than Hillary is. Vermont is a rural state with a lot of hunters, sport shooters and responsible, careful gun owners. He will not want to hack them off too badly; he cannot have afforded to do so up to now, if that makes any sense. I agree with many, if not all, of his other policies.

I do not like Hillary. I don't hate her, but I won't vote for her unless she ends up running against Cruz, who I do hate.

Maureen Dowd of the New York Times called Cruz a "brilliant reptile", and that is exactly what he is. Trump is not the megalomaniac in this race. Cruz is.

Politics is a dirty game and always has been. Fine. DON'T, however, try to hide your power hunger behind a mantle of devout faith and the Bible. I am not a Bible scholar but I believe there's a word for that and it's not a compliment.

I also hate Cruz. If I had to choose between Trump and Cruz in the general election, I'd choose Trump.

I love Lindsay Graham's statement that if you murdered Cruz and your trial was held in the Senate, you'd never be convicted.

Just found this thread. So glad to see so many Bernie supporters. My mom is mad at me for supporting him over Hillary. Sorry, but just because I'm a woman, I don't have to vote for Hillary. The November election scares me. The way this country is going, I've got one foot in Canada already. I'm hoping people aren't as stupid as they seem. (Fingers crossed)

Yeah, and then Graham went and endorsed him. Sorry. Graham was my favorite in the race 'till he left, but he is now on my s**t list. I would've been okay with Jeb, too, but then he left.

Given a choice between an energetic blowhard and a malicious, malevolent viper, I will take the energetic blowhard. He is at least honest and doesn't try to misrepresent himself.

Trump is a blowhard. He is also a liar. He is at least as dishonest as all the other "lying politicians" (however you want to qualify lies; some are worse than others). He's being sued for a completely bogus "Trump University" - nothing but a scam from start to finish. He misrepresents himself ALL. THE. TIME. The things he says, like getting Mexico to pay for a giant border wall, are complete fantasies! He wants more waterboarding and torture!

Cruz is very scary and has some pretty frightening views. But don't be fooled that Trump is somehow less scary. The fact that he has neo-Nazi and KKK endorsements is bone-chilling. He actually encourages, in addition to shrugging off, violence perpetrated at his rallies. He has a weird "Trump salute." Just because he isn't a mainstream politician doesn't mean he isn't dangerous.
