2. We should end the Super Delegate system.

As long as there are Super Delegates, they should all vote with the overall majority of pledged delegates, for the sake of democracy.

3. I never realized how Potemkin Village like the primary process was, I thought it was about making...

a choice, it was really about being rallied into falling behind the national committee choice.

13. We are starting to see who the corporations have their hooks in to.

It's very sad to see people like Barney Frank and Howard Dean sell out. There are others I could name, but I don't feel like fighting today.

People are not stopping to think of the shear power of all of that money. I have watched BP warp everything their way after the Gulf oil spill. Most people think it was resolved with a non-existent 20 billion dollar fund. The Class Settlement paid only 1/3 of the victims anything, usually not even close to what they lost. 2/3rds got nothing but denied.

That's just one big corporation. They ALL THROW MONEY AROUND WASHINGTON! If you have their support you win, without it you lose. The candidates are pre-selected before we even vote so we vote for who they put up. Bernie is trying to change that dynamic. We need to remember who sided with who when this is over. We need our own slate of candidates for the next mid-term election! I did not choose to live under corporate rule!

6. Franken to MN Dems: Screw you. I'll do whatever I want. Your preference be damned, peons!

 

Just remember me on election day and vote for me.

7. Well Al, having voted for you twice I am now questioning your

judgement. All because once upon a time I read you book "Lies and the liars who tell them." Learned a lot from that book. But I see you did not.

9. Wow

I just lost ALL respect I had for Franken.

Regardless of which candidate you support, the superdelegate system needs to end.

12. You piece of shit...

"I think" this and "I think" that the voters elected you to have more to say than THEY do, have I gotten that right, now?

Where the fuck do you think you've come from? Nobody but a giant egomaniacal blow job would admit as much.

14. He has also endorsed Patrick Murphy.

In an email from DSCC (if I recall correctly) his name was on the
header asking me to donate to support Patrick Murphy (R in D clothing).
Same with Harry Reid. Alan Grayson & Bernie Sanders have upset the
Establishment's apple (money) cart.

15. Al Franken...

The people of Minnesota elected you to REPRESENT THEM in the US Senate,
NOT to supplant their decision as to who the next President should be.

Exercise "Your Judgement" with you own vote at the ballot box, just like everyone else,
but a "delegate" is supposed to represent his constituents...

17. Me thinks the good Senator Franken already forgot when HE was an outsider himself.

Intimidated by Hillary much?
