    Bernie will drop dead from a heart attack before the gen election.

    And Hillary will die of a pulmonary emboli secondary to all the phlebitis and varicose veins in her fat cheesy legs.....
    Trump will die also soon, smothered by his wifes affections (for his money, of course).
    Optimistic, ain't I??

    I'm still kinda disappointed that Lincoln Chafee had to drop out so soon. And what ever happened to Jim Webb?

    nothing better than watching 2 old white people playing a game of who loves minorities more just for some votes. Bernie's a whacko and Hillary will be indicted. GOP circus will be rounding up soon.

    I've never missed an election since I turned 18. But I can count the number of major party candidates I've voted for on one hand.

    I'd like to see about 30% of the popular vote go to a third party candidate... that would send a message. Then again, so does not voting. The problem is the no-vote vote that's done to send a message can't be distinguished from the lazy Americans who just can't be bothered to get off their arses, go to the poles, and actually cast a vote. A vote for a third party candidate says, "NOT YOU" to both the Jackasses and the Elephants.

    True. My point is this - if elections become "choosing the lesser evil" by voting, one is still voting for evil. You can count me out; it isn't worth missing a day at the beach. Both sides of evil will fuuck the country up, each in their own way.
    And yes, a 3rd party would be nice, but it will never happen. Your political choice is not decided by a vote--it is decided by which 2 candidates to whom the "media" gives more coverage time. Period; no exception. Trump knows that--it is why he does ANYTHING to get the cameras on him; it sells!! And the nations electorate buys in....hook, line, and sinker. On that note, I prefer to go fishing or surfing, rather than voting.....
    To each his own, I suppose.

    It would not be the first time. I voted for W once (oh the shame and regret).

    Agree with Bernie or not he is the only honest candidate. I don't think he will be able to do a lot of what he wants but at least he seems to be for working people not billionaires.

    LB I would love to see a viable 3rd party but I think barry is right in that it isn't going to happen.

    This would seem like a huge improvement, if only to mitigate this awful practice of both parties trying so hard to appeal to the extremes in the primaries, and then try and rapidly broaden their appeal in the general. This strategy seems like it might be less necessary if there were a viable candidate(s) staking out more independent/centrist positions all along.

    "During the 20th century, socialism emerged as the most influential secular political-economic worldview. While the emergence of the Soviet Union as the world's first nominally socialist state led to socialism's widespread association with the Soviet economic model, many economists and intellectuals have argued that in practice the model functioned as a form of dictatorship"

    You may be right about him being the "most believable" but I just can't imagine all the Free Stuff. There is no talk from either party's candidates about our national debt...Kasich maybe? I don't have a good feeling about any of them...can't really see anyone emerging as a third party that is viable (would really only strengthen one side or the other depending on third party candidate's "leaning")

    Sure fun to watch. With Trump looking to run the table and dems/repubs worrying about their realities getting turned up side down by this guy is good entertainment. This is the epitome of reality TV. What a sh*^ show our political system is.

    I'm just pointing out a good reason to think before you vote.

    Need a reason to vote for Trump?
    Here's a real good one.

    This woman could be our First Lady:

    That' good enough for me!
    It would sure be a positive change.
