4. Most places they do

In my home state

It Wasn't Just Sheriff Joe: DPS Troopers Are More Likely to Search Latino, Black Drivers, New Times Finds

Racial profiling on the highway is a widespread and persistent problem in Arizona. Traffic records show DPS officers searched black and Latino drivers at more than double the rate of white drivers, according to a Phoenix New Times analysis of four years' worth of data from Stanford Universityís Open Policing Project.

Despite the search disparity, state troopers found contraband at approximately equal rates, regardless of the driver's ethnicity.

In Maricopa County, the sheriff's office has drawn attention for racial-profiling abuses. But DPS troopers search Latino motorists in this county at a much higher rate than whites, and at the second-highest search rate in the state. Only African-Americans in Navajo County were searched at a higher rate. (See graphic below.)

Here, Latinos were searched during 10 percent of routine traffic stops, African-American drivers were searched about 8 percent of the time, and white drivers were only searched during less than 4 percent of stops.

5. Truer words were never spoken.

I was drafted in 1967 and lost two years of my life for an
oil war. No wars have been necessary since WWII. We practice
birth control and outlaw abortion.

As Democrats we abhor Republicans but act just like them and
this cost Hilary an election because she fell into the mold.

There is a difference. And if that is so, we arenít ďjust like themĒ.

10. Just follow this D.U. Board

More than half the respondents sound like self-serving Republicans.

The Democratic Party has a big tent. We are for our country.
all of us. We are Union, we are non-union (but not anti-union).
We are for equal rights. I cannot get into races or religions because
we are together. We are not supreme. We welcome Socialists because
we are socialists.
The D.N.C. and Hillary treated Sanders like like an alien. That was
wrong. And, Wall Street is not our friend and Hillary worked for
Wall Street,

11. Gotcha. Economic issues. So I'm in agreement

re: the differences in the recent past have not been great as far as results for average Americans. Overall, the parties are not the same. Anyone who votes 3rd party or doesnít vote in 2020 based on the notion they are is dead wrong in my view. At the same time, Iím thrilled that Bernie and Warren are at center stage this primary.

Bernie has done more than just about any federal legislator to daylight the gross economic inequities of our corporate economy in the past 30 years. I proudly voted for him in the 2016 primary and he is among three I am considering this time around (none on the Dem right). But Iíll vote happily for whoever our nominee is because the two parties are not the same in most ways.

9. I saw a tweet the other day that was so true.

It said "Other countries in the world have guns. Only one has a political party that's dedicated to putting them in the hands of idiots."

So true.
