    Poor Dems...

    Brought this chaos on themselves.

    Hussein and Hillary have brought out the worst in everyone, its the direct result of the relentless blaming, anger and vitriol being spewed at Republicans.

    Fasten your seat belts it's only going to get worse.

    The bottom line is if the Democratic establishment and blind blue voters are dumb enough to vote for yet another crooked corporate sellout, they deserve a president trump.

    As they say, people get the government they deserve...

    Anecdotal evidence? I see you're putting all those big words you learned here on the forum to good use. :p

    No...but seriously....your party isn't even a threat this year. It's just humorous. See you in November. Clinton Sanders 2016!

    Kentucky still too close to call .. wonder what is going on in the back rooms... chair throwing, Clinton thugs holding Bernie delegates hostage, Bubba campaigning in the middle of the delegate count, a Hillary democratic board coup??

    Hillary's hair turning into a writhing mass of snakes and her eyes weeping bloody tears while her pupils transform into vertical slits. And flying lamps. Lots of flying lamps.

    I don't really have any defined numbers and am not an economist. I majored in PolSci and am a lawyer - vague generalities are my trade.

    If I was pinned, id say 5, 15 and 25+. The point is that a uniform system can devote significant resources to accomplishing a task in a way that a democracy, with independent elements, cannot. However, those same independent elements are freer to innovate than those in a planned economy.

    To be blunt, his true colors have only been coming out more recently. I myself once considered voting for him too.

    Ahh, yes. His "true colors" of not just sitting down and falling in line like every other fake corporate hack politico in this country.

    His "true colors" of standing on a picket line with real hard working Americans while other candidates sit in a board room speaking to a bunch of suits for $225,000.

    I'll take Bernie every day of the week. I've heard stories from two of my best friends who live in the Burlington area who have met him and know people who worked directly with him. He actually cares about doing the right thing and helping working people. Something that's very rare in today's politics.

    Verizon? Not a snowball's chance in hell that he would have been there if not for campaigning in NY, though I did appreciate the attention and optics it provided. But Hillary was there too. http://www.reuters.com/article/us-usa-election-idUSKCN0XA222

    I believe he cares, I just believe that he often goes about it in a jackass sort of way sometimes.

    What about Verizon? One picket line? Hillary was there for the cameras.

    Meanwhile Bernie has been walking picket lines for 40 years. Here's a couple of them.

    Over all those sorts of timescales China has outperformed the West however.

    Yes, so was Bernie. You don't really think Bernie would have been in NYC on that picket line that day on his own do you?

    And it's great Bernie has been on picket lines and met with labor over the years. I think that's awesome. But so has Hillary. For both candidates I think there is genuine caring, but also for both I think a lot of these things have been used as photo ops. You can try to paint the picture he is different, but when it comes down to it, Bernie is still a politician.

    Ok. How about decade, generation, multi-generation?

    I'll eventually support my hypothesis. That's how (soft) science is supposed to work, isn't it?

    If long term is multi generation no democracy has been around that long. Britain has only been one for 100 years. I don't know when the US gave everyone the vote.

    Besides changing the timescales to fit the facts is fairly ridiculous.

    A bit over 200 years ago when the constitution was adopted. Although I'm pretty sure the state legislatures were elected before that.

    I thought initially only landowners could vote.

    Then going by that we still haven't since there are groups of people like ex-felons who can't vote.

    There always have been, and there still are rules about what classes of people can and can't vote.

    The headline implies sympathy.

    The stuff in the middle implies something far more interesting but not surprising given previous turnouts in certain cities.

    The tagline implies theatrical hubris, albeit not created from idle fantasy.

    But then, if it's true everyone says Hillary is a closet Republican, then it's obvious with a capital "D-U-H" that Democrats would be increasingly apathetic. Why would voters believe that about her? She seems to be in various directions based on individual issues. Which is good. What's interesting is where Trump comes in on certain issues.

    But as we all know the stereotype, politicians are never ever sincere, right? Is that why more people vote in American Idol, because of sincerity?

    Fine by me. Apartment dwellers have no responsibilities... ask a few and those who used to be.

    With or without a helping hand?

    A couple of examples, how many can you find? ;)

    etc

    And despite piracy, for which they all claim to hate, which is 4x worse than in the US (90 vs 22% respectively, as of 2005 so the numbers might vary a little since... but I doubt China's has gone down to 0% out of gratitude for, what did the commie say, buying the rope the capitalists sold them?)

    I think people are starting to realize that Hillary Clinton has a LOT of political baggage to deal with. Even many of the aspects of the Whitewater scandal from 22-23 years ago are still not resolved even now.

    And now, we're starting to find out the financial shenanigans at the Clinton Foundation--issues that could land the Clintons in trouble for violating international finance laws and national tax laws.

    The entanglements are many related to that shrew. It cannot all be a coincidence.
