Notorious RBG - Get Out And Vote
Republicans and gender
Trump couldn't see this coming...
The news lately has been hilarious.
a lot of people were upset about Bernie
A lot of people still are.
I remember people being turned away at the polls for wanting to vote Bernie, it was insane
You should have called the police. Interfering in the right to vote is a crime. Even if you're planning to use a write-in... it's none of their damn business what you do with your ballot behind that screen.
they did call the police. it was wild.
I can't fathom someone being that stupid to think they have a right to stop someone who's registered from voting just because they disagree with their political choice.
Technically they were preventing people from registering to vote because they were they had a different political opinion.
I live in Las Vegas, friend of mine had decided that he was going to support Bernie. He went to register to vote as soon as he made his decision and well before the caucus took place. When he arrived at the voter registration table they asked him who he wanted to vote for he said that he was wanting to vote for Bernie they turned him away saying that this isn't the area where Bernie voters can register. He then contacted the authorities and people were brought in to ensure that people were allowed to register. Unfortunately my friend was not the first person in line and was in fact probably one of many people who were turned away and one of the few who actually contacted the authorities.
I don't think it made that big of a difference though, because ultimately the the caucus decided that all the people who decided to register to vote after a certain date should not have their votes counted. Bernie would have won in our region if they had counted the votes but because they decided afterwards that these votes should not count after particular deadline of being registered then they had to cancel all of their votes. This actually caused a huge uproar that has since then been pretty much ignored.
FYI I am using talk to text so many of this maybe full of typos. I'll go through and edit later.

And Clintonites still insist it was a fair primary.
People believing the above is true is what the GOP wants.
I mean, he's not wrong.
He's 100% wrong. Voters didn't choose Bernie in the primary. So they ran Clinton.
No one knew Bernie at the start. Clinton so had the DNC’s help.
This is 100% true
It's really no mystery that American politics is so fucked. You people have no clue how to run a country.
Clinton gets more votes in the primary and you insist that the loser should be the candidate instead. Then Clinton wins more votes in the general election and the LOSER is made president.
What part of voting do you guys find to be so confusing?
I never said he should’ve been the candidate nor my political affiliation.
Clintonites are almost as unbearable as Trump supporters
What does it matter whether you like Clinton or Trump supporters? Also, nice equivalency. You're definitely "above it all".
1) I’m not equating the two candidates, just the levels of annoyance their supporters express when presented with facts.
2) I’m not above it all, I did support one of these candidates. I just haven’t stated it because it doesn’t need to be when expressing factual information.
That's what I said. You're equating their supporters. Nice false equivalence.
I don't deny that Clinton won the primary, and I begrudgingly voted for her in the election, but it was pretty obvious that the DNC was not giving Bernie a fair shake.
Am I bitter about it? a little. but it's not going to keep me away from voting.
Why should the DNC give Bernie a fair shake? He isn't a member of the party. HRC has been since the 70's.
Bernie was hobbled by the DNC support of Hillary against him. The vote was influenced by the DNC’s unethical behavior. The DNC chose Hillary over Bernie and that all but forced the voters to do the same. He wasn’t even on TV or in the news when he was in a debate, they just pretended he didn’t exist because the DNC pretended he didn’t exist and so he had almost no chance.
Yeah, surely that's why carpet bagger Bernie didn't get votes. Because the voters take all their cues from the DNC. XD
I think he is wrong,
In general the Democratic party is worried what'll happen if they go too progressive
There's SO much hate for Trump, the argument is if Dems maintain status quo it'll be easier to absorb more power
If the Democratic party and it's canidates all go Elizabeth Warren it'll generate so much hate in the middle too many people might stick with the devil they know.
Keep in mind for most Democratic Voters that's why they picked Hilary over Bernie, Hilary seemed like a sure thing. And Bernie seemed like a big risk
The Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee is taking fire from the left after months of relative peace, thanks to a document put online the night of Feb. 22 — a collection of opposition research on Laura Moser, a progressive candidate in Texas’s competitive 7th Congressional District.
This is true, but Jimmy Dore is a fucking moron.
Less funny but more fact
Oh man, this guy is a trip.
