We need to level the playing field across the parties so new voices can make a legitimate impact.
But politicians, theoretically, aren't indebted to companies involved in Super PACs, so it's still a monster step in the right direction.

And even if Nader didn't cost anything, it doesn't change the fact that Bloomberg poses a threat to the Democratic nominee, especially if it's Bernie.

He is not going to win. His potential candidacy concerns me,

And I strongly disagree that the Democratic nominees are jokes. But then I'm a life-long progressive, so that shouldn't be surprising.

You have a socialist, who has zero chance of winning a national election. The other candidate is involved in an active investigation by the FBI.

On the other side we have a reality TV star with a history of bankruptcies and overstated real estate holdings who's offered literally no plans on how he is going to accomplish things through a year of campaigning, and Ted Cruz, a walking bucket of slime.

Oh yea. This is America's best hope.

FDR got a third term. So should Obama.

Repeal the 22nd amendment! But just for this year!

Why? Because you know Hillary is a terrible candidate who will probably get beat in November?

I'm for no limits on campaign finance as long as they don't come from overseas entities. In my view it violates the 1st Amendment caveats of Freedom of Speech and Association.

And on the right you've got an egomaniac of unprecedented proportions, and also Donald Trump.

The rich should have more free speech than anyone else, just like the founding fathers wanted.

Oh please, this election is just a formality; God has chosen his candidate and our country will be blessed again.

I think it is more to do with evey current candidate being a disaster, on both sides of the aisle.

Jesus came to me on his brontosaurus and told me that Ted Cruz was the chosen one.
