    Bernie called out the bs anti-LGBT laws that are actually being passed into law in the south since March 23 (KS - college trans individuals, then NC - everything, then MS - even more everything with "religious freedom" bs on top, then TN - mental health) without even being asked about it in the debate. :thumbsup:

    God, it's already been almost a month since these laws got passed...bs.

    Andrew, I'm sorry but I'm beginning to think you don't know what you're talking about. Ginsburg is about as old as Bernie would be if he served an 8 year term, and she's alive and well doing one of the most important jobs in the country.

    Maybe he won't. That doesn't mean I can't like and support him all I can.

    Wow! Beat me to that comparison. I really didn't even read your comment when I posted my response. :lol:

    Ok so to be in reality I'm totally messing with all of you haha. I'm sorry but I'm so sick and tired of all this political crapola that I just have to give you guys a little tease. Even if it does make your systems implode. :slight_smile:

    I believe Hilary Clinton is going to be the next president. I do not want her to be the next president but I think she is going to be the next one. I don't really want any of the current running candidates for president but I do believe Hilary is getting the election and I'm 99% she will be the nominee.

    Which is probably true. If Sanders's momentum picked up just a month or two sooner, then he would probably be the nominee. Recent polls are showing he has passed Clinton in national support, but it may be a little too late.

    It is too late! She's getting the nominee and she'll get the election because of the delegates votes and she's got $83 million dollars more raised for her campaign then sanders does for his.

    Money isn't always enough to win. Bush was getting a ton of money, and after he dropped out they started donating a ton to Rubio. The only reason she has money is because of superPACs donating a ton to her. Most of Bernie's money comes from individual contributions, which is a very hard source to rely on as a presidential candidate.


    But don't forget the Republican candidates that can beat Clinton. Kasich would dominate the election if he was against her. Cruz stands a chance, but not as strong of a chance.

    I don't believe Cruz will win as the only people that seem to like him are the bible thumping Christians if kasich some how managed to be the nominee I think there is a possibility that he could beat her but I couldn't say for sure.

    Don't count Bernie out just yet. Hilary is out of Southern states.

    All Bernie has to do is keep the New York primary close. Even if he doesn't win, if he can keep the count close than it's smooth sailing for him through the rest of the primaries. Most of the states left support Bernie way over Clinton and he's been gaining on her overall for awhile now. Don't forget he's on a winning streak.

    Hil might win if the system is corrupt enough, but the Bern is killing it with the amount of momentum he's gaining. A year ago I didn't know his name, and now he's got enough grassroots support to contend with a Clinton, who is basically political nobility.

    Yeah I know, right?

    If he'd gotten off to a stronger start there'd be no question who would win, but unfortunately it took a lil while for him to pick up momentum.

    even if he loses this time though he's in a really strong position for dominating in 2020 on an independent run.

    Yeah she's definitely most likely to win. It's okay, I didn't want a functioning country anyways...

    We get a once in a lifetime candidate running, and the people choose 'more of the same' anyways...I hate America.

    I don't get how one can not like Hillary Clinton but continually blast "she's gonna be the nominee." Yes, many of us actually do live in reality and can do simple math and realize that she is likely the nominee. It doesn't mean there's no chance for Bernie to catch up, though, and it doesn't mean we shouldn't support him. I'm not really sure what the point of parroting the same thing is... It's hardly even relevant. This topic is about the debate.

    I do have to say I like Sander's ideas, but I've watched quite a few debates, and if you've seen one you've pretty much seen them all. It was pretty boring... I understand that they have to repeat themselves though to get their message through and to reach new viewers, I guess.

    Some comic relief:

    Also, Hillary Clinton will be 69 before Election Day. Bernie Sander's will be 75. It's not a huge difference. I'd argue that Bernie Sander's seems healthier than Clinton... He seems to have more energy...
