@30 - I've done the relaxed, calm, rational approach for months, and it didn't help a lick because the uberleft won't listen to rational arguments; it's always about how Hillary isn't quite good enough, never about voting strategy or her actual progressive record. And I'm tired. I'm tired of people being shit fucks toward me simply because I support Hillary. I'm tired of stupidity ruling the day. I'm tired of the discourse. Pardon me for getting mad and succumbing to the vitriol. But here's the deal: if y'all uberlefties can't accept the fact that protest votes will help Trump win, then you really are stupid. Undeniably. So, I guess I could frame that in a nicey-nice way. But I'm done with that. Because when I do, some fucker gets up in my shit about "should have picked Bernie because he'd win when Hillary won't". That exact comment proves my point that the uberleft will be the reason that Trump wins this election. It's not that Bernie would win, its that the uberleft would actually vote for him. If the uberleft won't budge, they WILL lose this election for progressives. Period. Most people will vote for Hillary, some of us even think she'd be a good president. But if you absolutely WON'T vote for her for not being left ENOUGH, it ain't me that's losing the election, it's you. And if you think Johnson supports anything left in the slightest beyond legal drugs, you most certainly haven't done your research.

The repetition of "Hillary isn't good enough to win" by the uberleft is getting old and is abhorrently stupid and, if it continues, will leave us with Trump as president. Fuck all of you that keep perpetuating the idiocy of voting for Johnson or Stein. Get a clue and vote for the only viable progressive candidate - unfortunately for you she happens to be an old lady that you don't like all that much. Suck it up, use your fucking brain, and vote for the candidate with the experience and ability to actually push liberal agenda items into reality. Stein has no experience and would be horribly ineffective. Johnson's positions are antithetical to liberal values. It's not that hard.

At first I thought it was dangerous for him to keep stretching it out. Now, I think it is just sad. If it helps adjust the Dem platform in good progressive ways and keeps his fans in the mix, great. If it increasingly becomes some old dude wagging his finger in the wind and keeps his maniacal fringe people all lathered up, knock it off.
Jun 16 paulus22 commented on Wait. Where Was Bernie Sanders (D-Vermont) During Yesterday's Fillibuster?.
Bernie's gun record is one of the reasons that I didn't get all Berned up over him in the first place. Odd to be so uber-progressive but not in the realm of the 2nd amendment...
Jun 16 paulus22 commented on Watch the Powerful End to Democrats' Filibuster for Gun Control.
It is strange that I perceived this filibuster as such a brave, bold action when it was over such a minute addition to gun control. The fact that just seeing congress talk about this is so shocking is seriously disturbing to me. I hope that the NRA and Republicans will start to hear it from their constituents in such numbers that they cannot continue to support such idiotic 2nd amendment positions any longer.

Extremism in all aspects seems to be on the rise worldwide. Our 'smaller' world seems to be amping up allegiances and tribalism/nationalism/fundamentalism in many ways. Even much of the rhetoric being screamed from the extreme left in our primary season would count as extremism in my opinion. It seems like our new ego-focused social media makes our personal views seem more important than they are. Was Islam/homosexuality/guns/self-loathing/etc a factor? Yes. But any one of those things didn't make this happen. It is the willingness of 'normal' people everywhere to think their own shit don't stink and everyone else's reeks beyond belief that perpetuates all of this and disturbs me most.

We need to come together now. Hillary peeps need to not gloat, Bernie peeps need to bend a little. Everyone has something to do to improve the discourse. Me included.

@25: Fuck you. Either listen or don't. But don't tell us to shut up after we had to listen to fucking Bernie-tinged bullshit on repeat for the last year and a half. Much of that bullshit is why people like you won't pull your head out of your fucking ass and see truths that are plain in the record. I will never argue that Hillary is a perfect candidate. But I will argue that she is the best choice in this election to move progressive agenda items forward despite her flaws. Voting Green or write in just won't do that. If you can't see it, fine. Don't try to stop the conversation. We don't have an internet for silence, you fucking fuck fuck.

@16 - Do better research if you disagree. It's true. No lie necessary.
