Supreme court to reexamine union fees.

Last time the SCOTUS looked at this issue they were deadlocked 4-4. Now Gorsuch is on the bench.

Remember the democratic party is not the end goal its a means to the end goal.

The democratic party is vehicle that we are using to get us to the desired destination. We have a set of ideals and policies that we stand for and use the party to come together in strength to accomplish these goals. We don't blindly follow the party because sometimes that will lead us incorrectly. We need to be true to the ideals we care about - let those be the guide and we won't fail. So if Bernie is a way of implementing the ideals - yes, I will support an "independent" to accomplish those ideals. Use the tools that are available to accomplish our goals the best we can.

The "I stand with Bernie" thread!

It seems a lot of trolls are trying to tear him down. But I'm here to say I support Bernie 100% and will not let the infiltrators take that away from this community. Who is with me?

We need to get away from executive orders (DACA)...

because what one president does the next can undo just as easily. We need to pass real legislation so the president can't just scrap it! When we controlled all 3 houses we passed ACA, but why didn't we pass DACA?! Seriously why?

So if Irma destroys Mar-a-Lago...

I'm sure tRump will make sure he gets large amounts of government assistance. Isn't that a conflict of interest?
