20. Why does Rice play Texas?

Your comment about rational discussion insinuates Bernie supporters are irrational. One of the points I am trying to get across is that many of his supporters are extremely rational. Thus given the choice of Hillary or Bernie, the choice is Bernie.

I lived through Bill, thus have a damn good idea what will be accomplished IF Hillary can hold the Blue Wall and pick off a couple of swing states. Based on the current state of her firewall, along with her meltdown in 2008, I have serious concerns.

Again, this isn't just about this election, it is about long term wins. We have two choices, both quite a bit older than me. The young vote has broken Huuuge for Bernie. Either choice is going to have to battle the establishment Repubs, and in a switch, likely a young Republican named Rubio.

A fight is eminent, I'm ready to brawl and am going into battle with the youth. My other option seems to be to go into battle with the possibility of taking a shiv in the back.

For what it is worth, I supported Obama early in the 2008 cycle, way before he even announced. For this cycle I just broke for Sanders last month. I finally figured it was going to be a brawl either way so do I want to fight for the status quo or do I want to fight for change? Made my decision easy, dare I say rational.

Really friggen hard to get motivated to fight for the status quo, get all damned bloodied and bruised for nothing.
