You can probably buy all the calculators in the state of Texas for the sum it costs to keep someone in prison for two years.

The justice system in this country is shameful. It's unfair, it's ineffective, it's costly, it punishes the poor and minorities. And nobody does anything about it because somehow it means you are "soft on crime".

I think that's a great alternative

Sanders now leads in Iowa...but we all could have predicted this would eventually happen by the time the caucus rolled around...once people make the decision to support Sanders which is pretty much always done based on the issues rather than the personality, they unsurprisingly stick with him and it leads to him constantly gaining on Clinton everywhere the closer we get to these election dates. The big questions of course are still whether he has enough time to flip more states and not lose so badly in places of South Carolina and just how many black supporters will come around to the guy (I think latinos will be a little more open minded since they aren't constantly saying "But Clinton served the black President!" in their heads).

Also, O'Malley might not make the next debate.

Quinnipiac poll: Sanders surges to retake lead in Iowa | TheHill


And, not surprisingly, Sanders fares much much better in both state and national matchups against Republicans than Clinton does as evidenced in all of these NBC polls from a few days ago...she has far more baggage.

I hate how quick people are to accuse someone of racism when they bring up identity politics...Clinton served under the Obama administration and that has brought her practically the entire support of this country's black populace at the moment. That's all I'm saying. I personally believe that if Obama had just cast her adrift and not hired her that she wouldn't have that advantage at all with the community and might even be worse off right now given the racially charged moments of her '08 campaign...

The way you stated it was not about identity politics or support. You basically said they won't think for themselves because she served the black president.

And I meant it. Not for everyone, as more educated voters are always going to base their decisions on the actual issues. I'm sure most of the people heavily involved in the Black Live's Matter movement will also be taking a closer look at things before making their decisions.

But in general? The least educated group in the entire country and the only core constituency that still gives Obama insanely high approval ratings supporting Clinton simply because she worked for the first black President? Yes, I believe that's the case. And no, it isn't racist to think so.

Other than Clinton trying to call Sanders weak on guns because he came from a rural state and opposed one significant law, where else does she actually offer more to America's most screwed over community that Sanders doesn't? Nowhere.

It's similar to Lena Dunham recently claiming that she supports Clinton because of the issues and not because she's a woman. And what issues exactly would that be, Lena? You're against Medicare for all, less foreign intervention/drone strikes and stiffer Wall Street regulation? Her support is entirely because Clinton is a woman.

Thank goodness we have a man to clear this up for us and for Lena.

Until Lena actually says what the "issues" are that gives Clinton the edge for her vote, I will be correct in my assessment.

Brought to you by the woman who made up a fake college rape and blamed it on someone with the same real life name, encouraged people to vote like crazy for Obama in 2012 even though she didn't vote in the mid-terms, calls Woody Allen a child molester and pens an editorial about it because she's friends with Ronan Farrow (when the only one proven to have inappropriately touched a young girl is Lena herself) and writes a television show dedicated to showing men as being awful in the sack as much as possible. Yes, she clearly as her issues.

Least educated part of the populace? Fact.

Cite Hillary working for Obama as a key reason for their support as written about in various newspaper articles so far in the campaign? Fact.

America's most screwed over community? Fact.



So, where exactly did I say something untruthful or racist?

I'm just wondering what group you side with in the identity politics game? We've learned women will like music if it's sung by someone overweight, black people group think, and women voting for Clinton don't know the issues. So I'm curious what's your group?
