    One person-one vote-period. Bae, I think the super delegate is a bunch of crap. Originally there were no super delegates. I forgot what year this came into being.

    We have two blue urban centers and they are q by the red rural dwellers, and the red suburban land.
    so there's that, which is a nice counterpoint t to being a red voter in a neon blue city.

    Yes I have seen that before. I signed a petition as did 4.3 million other people so far. I hope it becomes a movement.

    Well, about half of American adults believe astrology is a science, so that'll end well.

    Some of the social engineering is subsidizing student loan debt for people whose occupations they deem worthier than other people's.

    Maher is right. The backlash did help elect Trump. Thank you for posting this insightful article UL.

    Are you resurrecting every old thread you can find just so you can make yet another snarky comment about student loans and the people who have them?

    Not all student loans and loan holders, only the ones I have to subsidize for people who earn more than me and jet around the world.

    But don't worry, they say they enjoy being spend shamed, and are impervious to criticism since they also state they are superior to other people.

    Are you also outraged about the bank bailouts, the fact that powerful congressmen are able to steer pointless military spending to their districts, farm subsidies, and all the other money that gets steered to one group or another? Or the mortgage interest deduction that mainly benefits upper middle class and wealthier people? Or public schools for that matter. I don't have kids and never will, but I still pay a boatload of taxes towards that giveaway.
