Bernie Sanders message is rather stark. America is victimized by the rich, who buy political power and use it to maintain their domination of the finances of the society.
A lot of young people like Sanders, meaning they buy Sanders message. The Nevada voting for the Democratic candidates is taking place today, and I hear one report that the over 45 vote is splitting roughly evenly between...

Bloomberg in 2012: ‘I’m a big fan of Donald Trump’
Via: Donald J. Trump fan 1 • 6 comments • 15 hours ago
The democrats are right to pounce on little mike, the evil misogynistic racist Bloomberg for his past. He is a hypocrite of the first order. Trump is right to call the intolerant arrogant jerk Bloomberg out for betraying friendship for political expediency. There’s not enough detergent in all the world to clean Bloomberg’s dirty laundry.
Feb 22 3:51pm@3He is running to satisfy his ego and because he is jealous of Trump, in my opinion

I have begun my research in earnest in regards to the candidates. I like to gather as much information on all the contenders and pretenders. I still have not found anyone I can throw my support behind completely. I am tired of the "lesser than 2 evils" approach that has become our Presidential Elections.

New group for Trek fans
By: Dignitatem Societatis • 102 comments • 13 hours ago
Just a quick FYI.
If you're a fan of any Star Trek show or film, then be sure to pop over to the new group and join.
If you'd like to migrate any Trek-related articles or seeds over, then please feel free to do so, though I just discovered that migrating seems to wipe out an article's up votes for some reason.
Anyway, there it is.
Live long and prosper.

Sen. Elizabeth Warren, D-Mass., is facing backlash over a story she told where she said she accepted a campaign contribution from a college student who only had "$6" in her bank account. Appearing on MSNBC following her devastating fourth-place primary finish in her neighboring state of New Hampshire on Tuesday, she was asked about whether she was confident that there would be "some kind of...

The D field is pretty messed up. Bloomberg, as a candidate, still seems to have the best chance of defeating Trump. But he has to counteract:

FOR THE FIRST TIME IN US HISTORY A SENATOR HAS VOTED TO CONVICT A PRESIDENT OF HIS OWN PARTY

It is the first time in history a senator has voted to convict an impeached president of his own party.
In effect, Romney implied the evidence was overwhelming.

Chuck Todd told a Biden surrogate that if he doesnt finish in the top two in Iowa tonight , his campaign is in trouble. Todd told a Sanders surrogate that is he doesnt win (come in first) in either Iowa of New Hampshire Sanders is toast. People like Todd say there are a limited number of "tickets" out of Iowa and if you dont win one of those tickets you might as well fold.
