Might as well...i swear i saw on SP the other night that Caitlyn Jenner and Mr. Garrison were running on the GOP ticket. That would be a step-up over TRUMP! and Cruz666

Ha, this reminds me of an article I read during the last US election cycle trying to explain the US system for an Australian audience, which explained why US politics is so awash with cash simply by attributing it to "a cultural quirk that associates political donations with freedom of expression".

I'd say donation and spending limits actually promote greater freedom - that no person with shitloads of money can monopolise the field - but perhaps that's just a "cultural quirk" too.

Do your religious values inform you to support someone positively at this point?

I must say that this is actually a pretty good debate. Sanders and Clinton are having a good back-and-forth on some of these issues.

Why? I don't think she's going to be indicted in the end, but it doesn't mean it isn't true.

There are plenty of reasons why Hillary isn't an ideal candidate beyond the email thing. They just aren't as pithy.

I feel bad for the Bernie supporters. Despite Bern cleaning her clock by 20% in NH, that witch if making off with more delegates from the contest. She has the backing of more super-delegates by a margin of 6-1.

It seems someone read a UsUncut article and thinks he knows something about party politics.

Not any more or less than a weather person might go into your wardrobe and pick out what you should wear.

Well Trump has the endorsement of David Duke and Neo-Nazi groups, and Cruz has the endorsement of this asshole:

I still have a hard time backing any candidate.

And honestly, closed primaries in my state are a big reason as to why I don't feel a desire to choose.

I back Sanders and Im confident of my decision; however, this weirdly heated "who's better?" type of arguments amongst Democrats is kinda making me alienated.

Unless he changes his tune Sanders won't offer the GOP anything that could lead to a compromise. With a GOP majority in Congress that would lead to a complete standstill. A standstill the GOP would be able to justify.
While Hillary has many flaws, she does know how politics work. She will be aware she will have to move to the left for the starting point in 'negotiations' to end somewhere in the center.

I think her supporters would probably applaud Hillary slightly moving to the left. I don't think Sanders would feel the same if he would move towards the center. I think they would feel quite betrayed.
