    Ross Perot was not really the same kind of spoiler: Bush would have lost with or without him, according to all of the exit polls. Nader (and stubborn Sanders partisans) will only take votes from the Democrat.

    and maybe the Electoral College will do the right thing and vote in the best candidate regardless of the general election. You know, to make up for the last time the did that and got it wrong with baby bush.

    Really, Bennett? Bush was declared the victor in FL by, what, 500 votes? And in Duval County, the Supervisor of Elections threw out 27,000 votes, half of those in overwhelmingly black precincts.

    In any case, if we didn’t have the vile practice of plurality victories, and simply used ranked-choice voting (not the crippled version that limits it to 3 rankings, but a ranking of all candidates on the ballot), this would be a non-event.

    = = = = =
    They were thrown out for “no” vote, or for “multiple votes.” There has to be a certain amount of intelligence once you are along in that voting booth. If you can’t follow simple directions…..
    I used to live in Duval County. In those precincts, they tell them for whom to vote and drive them to the polls. They just can’t go in the booth with ‘em, and that’s where it breaks down.

    There have been people on the left who would like a much more liberal political system. They have been voting for Sanders and Naders and Kusinichs all along. This hasn’t really changed much this cycle.

    Bernie has made no indication whatsoever that he plans to run as an independent as Nader did. I have no doubt that he will support Hillary or whoever gets the Democratic Party nod. For now he is simply providing a voice for those of us who are tired of always choosing between extreme right Republicans and Republican lite.

    Oh Yes, my brother was very upset I voted for Perot,
    He claimed I caused Bill Clinton to be elected. Just exactly what I wanted.

    Bernie has shown there’s still diversity in the party, but it’s dangerous to turn that totally into destructive division.


    What’s far scarier is the supposed unanimity in the “support” for Trump the media would have us believe. When Republican power players that point out how crazy Trump and his ideas are, get assaulted in the media and threatened with tar and feathers by the minority, where is courage, or sanity?

    As one of the now-banned butt-bag trolls said: “I’d vote for a ham sandwich over Clinton”. The visceral, illogical hatred for the Clintons have been cultivated by the conspiracy-fanatical, pitchfork-waving right-wing media for decades, and this is the result: The very real danger that an immature, quick-tempered juvenile with ADHD will make catastrophic decisions affecting the lives of this nation (and the world) for generations to come.
    .
    And all his followers scream about is how Bill Clinton got a (expletive) BJ and how it makes his wife a “rapist-enabler”. What a crock of s**t.

    What? No — $hillary is Nader — the candidate no one likes, except for a staunch band of long time supporters that can’t see two feet in front of their noses. Bernie has the excitement, the momentum, and the Independent voters to ensure a Democratic victory in November. There’s no way he’s Nader.
