And like I explained these were voters who couldn't give a **** about the Democratic party so why would they be registered dems prior to knowing someone worth it could win

You are basically saying that Bernie supporters didn't support Bernie until they saw that he had a possible chance of winning.

So they didn't really give a **** about Bernie or his policies then.

Replace "liberal independent" with "black person".

I'm not sure how you get from A to B here

I'm a communist but I couldn't tell you the name of the communist parties candidate in the US this year because he/she didn't have a chance

I think you quoted the wrong post.

That's not even remotely the same. It's not like he was running for some tiny party like the constitution party.

elphenor 01-16-2017 03:40 PM

Yeah but he was an independent from Vermont prior to running

I just can't fault people for not knowing about him until mid primary I think you're being absurd

For a lot of people the first time they were hearing him speak was when he showed up in their state

Connect the dots people.

Quote:

1. Trump's debt load has grown dramatically over the last year, from $350 million to $630 million. At the same time, he’s been blackballed by all major US banks.

2. Post-bankruptcy, Trump has become highly reliant on money from Russia -- most of which has over the years become increasingly concentrated among oligarchs close to Vladimir Putin.

3. Paul Manafort, Trump's campaign manager and top advisor, spent most of the last decade as top campaign and communications advisor to Viktor Yanukovych, the pro-Russian Ukrainian Prime Minister and then President whose ouster in 2014 led to the on-going crisis and proxy war in Ukraine. Yanukovych was and remains a close ally of Putin.

4. Trump's foreign policy advisor on Russia and Europe is Carter Page, a man whose entire professional career has revolved around investments in Russia and who has deep and continuing financial and employment ties to Gazprom, which, in turn, is part of Putin’s financial empire.

5. Over the course of the last year, Putin has aligned all Russian state controlled media behind Trump.

6. The Trump Camp was totally indifferent to the Republican Party platform, with one exception: They changed the party platform to eliminate assistance to Ukraine against Russian military operations in eastern Ukraine. Not incidentally, this is the single most important issue to Putin.

7. Trump is also suggesting the US and thus NATO might not come to the defense of NATO member states in the Baltics in the case of a Russian invasion -- another important issue to Putin.

Nah. If you criticise Bernie supporters for being too lazy to figure out how to vote then you should also criticise poor blacks for not bothering to register.

elphenor 01-16-2017 03:53 PM

Old people make the rules purposely obtuse so that only retirees have the time to figure it out this is all well known

It's actually hilarious how much of the voting populace is ancient

Oh I didn't know you considered yourself a poor black.
