Re: “The INDY Endorses Kay Crowder for Raleigh City Council District D

I'm glad we have at least one knee-jerk anti-development Democratic city council member. We need more!!!!

Re: “The INDY Endorses Corey Branch for Raleigh City Council District C

You endorse Branch because he's African American yet won't do the same for Francis for Mayor?

Re: “The INDY Endorses Dickie Thompson for Raleigh City Council District A

Dickie Thompson won my vote the way he responded to my complaint about neighbors getting parking tickets from Raleigh PD after a bomb scare at Millbrook HS. Especially in light of the crappy way city staffers initially handled the matter. He's a class act

Re: “The INDY Endorses Nancy McFarlane for Raleigh Mayor

New blood is needed in Raleigh. Homeless people, 1st responders and folks tired of a 1-hour bus ride anywhere can't wait two more years for economic progressives to takeover.

Re: “The Case for Bernie: 5 Reasons the Vermont Socialist Deserves Your Vote

Forgetting that the caucus process was and is a process that could be manipulated by insiders - and there is evidence this was done by both Republicans and Dems.

Forgetting also that the whole party establishment has been rigging everything including the debates for Hillary since June 2008 - and we aren't supposed to care about that . When this issue is raised, the response is redirect to ask if you will vote for Hillary if she wins. Because the only reason the party exists is to vote for Democrats - even when they act like Republicans.

Then there is the SC touchscreen voting machines which gave the 2010 US Senate nomination to a guy who hadn't done any campaigning whatsoever. The other guy won 80% of the absentee paper ballots, but got creamed on election day - and there was no forensic audit done because the flash cards had to go right back into service for the runoff in another statewide race. How many other primary elections will be determined by unverifiable touchscreen voting machines?

Re: “Raleigh one of nation's most affordable cities, say people who've never tried to buy a house here

Housing in Raleigh is not cheap. Ask the people who aren't STEM grads or who don't work in tech or finance. Ask the new teachers or other state government workers if they can afford to buy a home in Raleigh - or in Wake County - or like my friends moved to Franklin County because they could buy the home they need (given some health issues) and work in an adjacent structure for HALF the cost of building in Wake County
