    I believe that like minded individuals should be able to spend as much as they want to support the candidates of their choice. If those individuals decide to band together and pool their money in support of said candidates, that should be ok too. What would you propose as a workable system of campaign financing that you feel would be fair?

    We have been repeatedly told by the left that Al Sharpton does not represent the black community (thank God) yet it has been reported that Bernie is or possibly already has met with Al. Further makes me believe Bernie is not as in touch with us normal people as many like to believe.

    Bernie did meet with Al today.

    Al was waiting to meet with HRC before he announces who he will back.

    Everything. It's all on them for skyrocketing costs once the government put taxpayers in the college funding business.

    Sorry, but Bernie and Al hanging out together is just too funny. Hopefully Fallon and Kimmel are all over this soon. Al should be fine with Bernie because since Al does not pay his taxes anyway, why would he care if Bernie raises his tax rate to 90%???

    Bernie wins by around 20 points and still loses because 6 of 8 Super Delegates were already aligned with Clinton before the first ballot was cast.

    Bernie is disingenuous railing about billionaires buying elections when George Soros and his MoveOn.org are supporting him and running ads for him.

    In fairness Bern wants a 52% tax rate.

    George Soros is not supporting Bernie, he gave another 6M to HRC a week ago. He gave a million plus to moveon years ago. The members of moveon voted online to endorse Sanders. If they are now running ads for him, it is not of his doing.

    From what I've read the super delegate issue is overblown. As one person said, super delegates have never determined the nominee and would never go against the will of the people.

    Article I read said that Sanders had a slim delegate lead in New Hampshire but that 6 of 8 Super Delegates were already pledged to Clinton thus giving her more New Hampshire delegates at the convention than Sanders even though he trounced her.

    Hopefully they do vote to the will of the voters. What's the point in even having Super Delegates?
