Anyway, I appreciate your posts because it helps me better understand that there is a left wing bubble that's just as impenetrable as the right wing bubble. Right Wing media was light years ahead of Left Wing media starting in the Clinton years and up through Bush 2. There's now a much more successful left wing echo chamber able to spawn left wing true believers. I guess that's a good thing.
That's a nice Centrist echo chamber you've got going on here. I guess that's a good thing.

He lost control around 2010 and since then can't pass significant legislation. There's nothing that's hard to understand about this. If Republicans control one or more of the two houses of Congress, there's zero chance you can pass left-leaning bills. They are entirely the reason why we have gridlock.

Again, the same fate awaits Hillary or Sanders. But Hillary will actively screw over the American people like Bill did by working with Republicans on legislation. Much rather have Bernie sit in there for eight years and basically wait out the clock for more Republicans to die until we can take back Congress then have someone fuck over the American people just so the history books can say Hillary "increased military spending 50%" or "deregulated the banks even more"



We disagree on what "significant" means.

I also am opposed to your total opposition to the GOP. Don't be like them.

I have no time for any Republicans anywhere anymore.

None.

I don't see anything wrong with total opposition to the Republican Party. Likewise with the Democrats.

Someone has to be an adult and govern. That means working with people you don't necessarily like or agree with.

Exactly. Otherwise you're just a child; and it doesn't matter if you're a child on the right or a child on the left, you're still a child.

I can do this.

But I refuse to vote for them.

Can we go back to talking about Woodie Allen being a child molester?

This whole Hillary-Bernie discussion has glossed over some of the real, legitimate issues with Hillary Clinton that has caused some of us to support Bernie Sanders. I'm heading to sleep, but I hope to expand on my thoughts soon.

I hope you do. I am looking for more information because I really haven't decided yet who I would vote for if my primary vote counted.

I don't think you're voting for Sanders out of a desire for political attrition warfare that only ends when the olds die off.

I'm delighted to be called a centrist. ;-)
