    So the results of the primary are a lie?

    @FlamingPie I found a husband for you.

    Check the thread title; Bernie is the most popular politician in America.

    Dwell in the past much, Stinkydigit?

    "Data from Fox News, Mar 2017"

    Is that what you've been reduced to?

    you have it backwards.

    when you count the $2 billion in free advertising trump got, we were outspent 2:1.

    i am all for campaign finance reform, but not for lopping off my right leg before running a marathon.

    You see the source of the data for their "Bernie is the Best" graph in the top left corner?

    SAD!!

    Gutting Citizens United would be nice.

    But you needed Hillary to staff SCOTUS, not the neanderthal that squeaked in there with less votes.

    The collateral damage from this guy will cause problems for decades. We have to keep these people out, not bicker about Hillary's donors.

    If I was running, I'd take corporate money. Then I'd fuck them with policy. It's been done before, you aren't exactly signing a contract.

    You don't actually support campaign finance reform, just like establishment Democrats don't. They only pay it lip service.

    The supreme court route is an unviable option now. Gorsuch will probably be confirmed under Trump giving the court back a conservative majority, so the only way to get rid of Citizens United and the other cases that allow the corporate influence of money in politics is through congress. Can't do that if the corporatists control the policy. So, the only way I see this happening is if these people are removed from their positions and replaced by actual progressives who will support campaign finance reform

    "at least we took a principled stance on campaign finance reform", he utters proudly to himself, as his neighbors are deported.

    Perfect representation of the primary and campaign, Sanders talks policy, Clinton slings back identity attacks because she knows she loses on policy

    You can't explain what kind of campaign finance reform you support.. because you don't. Can't beat em on policy, ^^^


    :rolleyes:

    policy or no policy, the DNC shut berndog down and caused a division within their own party. and then he jumped on for a free ride when he knew he got outplayed. he loves to denounce "rich people" yet has 3 houses himself. he may be popular as a person, so was octomom and mc hammer at one time, but that doesnt mean anything now does it?

    -war on drugs, is generational. as time goes on more and more of the country is against it, hence cannabis laws passing. majority against
    -gay marriage, majority dont care, but also dont want it crammed in their face
    -lgbt rights, majority dont care, but also dont want to hear about the feelings of 2% of the population. feelings arent legislative
    -abortion, majority pro choice, also somewhat of a generational/religion thing
    -infrastructure, majority want better roads, bridges, dams, etc ( but...environmentalists sure dont!!)

    The Chump is a master of media manipulation, there's no arguing that. Shillary was as interesting as gnawing on fenceposts, but that doesn't change the fact that the Chump was still outspent in dollar terms 2:1.

    So what does your idea of campaign finance reform look like?

    Mr Sanders' campaign certainly proved that grassroots finance is a force to be reckoned with.

    Think about it this way; 100 million voters times $100 each still adds up to a $10 BILLION campaign season!

    The only difference is that the Exxons and Sheldon Adelsons of the world won't be able to put their thumbs on the scale and tip the balance anymore.
