Changes in the democratic primary system?

I often wonder if a person's views change with the candidate they support. My opinions transcend the candidate I support. Every thing I'm posting here I not only believed before this primary but I believed long before the 08 primary. If TPM had saved it's reader's blogs discussions much of this post could be found there from ten years ago.

if we want to stop mass shootings we must call them crackers

I hate to say it but Trump has a point. If we want to stop mass shootings by Muslims we must call them Radical Islamic terrorists.  If only Obama had done this the Orlando shooting would never have happened

We must face the fact that most mass shootings are committed by white men. The only way to stop this is to call them Cracker terrorists. Or perhaps Trailer Trash terrorists. It's the only way to stop it.

Bernie calls for a revolution

America is broken. The problems are numerous. Banks, Wall Street Bankers, Hedge funds, big banks too big to fail, corporations, and rich bankers. Business as usual will not solve our problems. We need a Revolution. A Revolution of The People, The People who are democratic senators. The People who are democratic representatives. The People who are democratic governors and democratic mayors. The People who are democratic super delegates.

A Pragmatic Approach To Elections

When forming opinions about the flow of campaign events and deciding how to cast my vote there are three standards I look at.

A democrat must win.

I want liberal values and ideas to be debated and I want the party to move to the left.

I want the candidate to hold as many liberal views on the issues as is possible to win.

Hillary eats food and drinks too!

I've been reading a lot about Hillary's trip to Chipotle and some have criticized this as a foolish focus on the irrelevant. I disagree, though I do think most of the writers are missing the real meaning and nuance of the story.

More Than Fifty States?

As I'm sure everyone knows five Colorado counties have voted to secede from the state of Colorado. We're about to see a 51st state! Its a logical reaction to the partisan split that's overtaking the country. But its not as simple as it sounds.

Connections Between Social Media and E-mail

Given time restrains I didn't intend to blog here atm but I had an  experience with my Hotmail account that may have some interest to people here and apropos as we are now discussing internet privacy issues.
