Re: “We Broke the Machine: The 2016 Election and the Flailing American Experiment

Indy Week - do you still feel as smug now about your Hillary endorsement? I blame you and the legions like you for this. You not only condoned corruption in the Democratic Party, but you laughed it off. It had real consequences.

Re: “Your Participation is Mandatory: The INDY’s 2016 Primary Endorsements

I realize the Indy believes that HRC is the "safe" pick, even though she's uninspiring and has no real intention of driving actual progressive change. However, the counter to that would be the clusterF that is the GOP. With that much disarray, now is actually the best time to put up a real candidate. Bernie is unassailable from a personal standpoint, as opposed to HRC. This makes the Trump-Sanders debate much more winnable.

Re: “Your Participation is Mandatory: The INDY’s 2016 Primary Endorsements

DNC Chair: Super-delegates (as opposed to Pledged delegates) "exist really to make sure that party leaders and elected officials don’t have to be in a position where they are running against grassroots activists."

Currently, Clinton has a 577-394 lead in pledged delegates, mostly thanks to southern states. North Carolina has 107 pledged delegates, which would close that gab substantially. Get out there and vote. If we can get to Democratic convention with a draw in the popular vote, if nothing else we’ll have the ammunition needed to do away with the very un-democratic Super-delegate system.

News media keeps showing Clinton’s lead with the total delegate count, but super-delegates don’t vote until July. If they split it out the pledged count, it would actually help Sanders (which is likely the reason they don’t).

Go vote!

Re: “Your Participation is Mandatory: The INDY’s 2016 Primary Endorsements

At this point, perhaps Bernie should consider stooping to Hillary's level. She'll spend her first term much like her husband's last... defending one scandal after another. Bernie should mention this. Also, she's proven she's ready to play dirty. For example, in the last 10 days there have been articles, missing references, calling Sander's economic plan unworkable. However, an economist (and Clinton supporter) ran it through a standard economic model. The results? It would work. However, the press parroted the unfounded criticism verbatim. One of the critics actually recanted once he ran it through the economic modeling himself. Here is a good summary of the hit: http://billmoyers.com/story/the-sanders-economic-plan-controversy/

Re: “Your Participation is Mandatory: The INDY’s 2016 Primary Endorsements

Indy Week's tagline on google includes the word "progressive". Here in the Triangle, apparently even progressives are conservative. Sanders does well in actual progressive areas. Where does he struggle? The south. If you were truly progressive, you'd be for something other than a 1% deviation from the status quo. This endorsement is unfortunate and somewhat fearful.
