Bernie would have won.

No kidding. Bernie won in the some of the reddest areas of this country in the 2016 Primaries. 🙂

Paul ADK

And Progressives will win again, in those same reddest areas of the country. As soon as we get our collective heads out of our butts and form a viable party without the corporate Democrats. Clinton and the DNC stole that nomination. She made the fatal error of thinking she could win conservative votes, if she dropped the left. That’s never happened, and it never will.

Well, she and Bubba sure weren’t progressive. They were GOPuke Lite like a lot of DNC. When Raygun was elected in 1980, GOPukes started leaving their Party. Guess where a lot of them ended up? The Clintons may not have been among them, but they were neoliberal conservative to the core.

Hillary was actually a Goldwater Girl, way back then. So in a way she led the pack.

There were a number of reasons why I couldn’t vote for her but that was way up there.

i’m sure most of you heard the La. law about the 10 commandments to be hung in all schools.
Well with schools out right now the kids wont have numerous questions like a 3rd grade teacher getting asked what adultry is. You know how the GQP hates discussing that(sex). Cult 45 has ripped to shreds at leat 7 of the 10 probably all of them. At some point it will go to the USSC, it will be interesting to see if the follow the constitution on this? Waiting for the church of Satan to want their tenants posted as well.

thanks, benny! music always fun.

RT news has a piece on AIPAC going after Jamaal Bowman (I was going to say tonight, but it’s 2 a.m. in Moscow). Bowman even was talking to a crowd about the propaganda about Hamas–pretty brave. I’d link, but it just links to the news and by the time you get there, it might not have it.

If the eligible young folk in his district will “kindly” do their civic duty in a Primary Election, Bowman wins. It’s that simple.

@Paul and jcb, what are you two picking up through the NY voting grapevine? Bowman is in a different district from where you 2 live.

Paul ADK

Very different, for me. I’m way up here with Elise Stefanik, and I really do wish I could say there was a way to unseat her. The deal here is you can’t eat the scenery, and every year this area loses the best and the brightest to greener pastures. The result of decades of brain drain, and building prisons, is Stefanik’s safe district.

I used to have a bead on city politics, but since I’ve been up here I’ve really lost touch. All I can say is moneyed interests can spend and influence, but they only each get one vote, and there are way more of us than them. As always it depends on who turns out to vote. I guess we’ll know Tuesday.
