    Republicans don't have an electable candidate, so its either Hillary or Bernie. Hillary is stronger and will probably get the nomination

    Hillary won't be able to recuperate from the honesty issues. The party won't want the natural frontrunner in Bernie being too independent from the party at large, they will push Biden in only for him to lose to the (hopefully not, but most likely) Bush or Trump opposition.

    I wanted Rand but that's not gonna happen. The best possible candidate at this point is Carson, but even he's iffy.

    Bernie is too liberal/socialist, he'll scare off some of the more moderate democrats. It's gonna be Hillary.

    Bernie himself saying "I Am a socialist"



    Also on Wikipedia

    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bernie_Sanders

    "A self-described democratic socialist,[6][7][8][9] he favors policies similar to those of social democratic parties in Europe, particularly those instituted by the Nordic countries."

    Still fairly radical compared to Hillary. A lot of people don't want That much change.

    Carson is the least douchey GOP candidate, but the last debate proved that he's no longer a real scientist and has become a politician. Didn't have the spine to show any teeth in front of Trump over the vaccine issue, and was silent when they discussed climate change.

    Because neurology is practically the same thing as climatology and immunology.

    He's saying that the candidate in question was a Neurologist so the questions about climate change and such were not his area of expertise. One shouldn't expect a scientist to know all branches of science in other words.

    It shouldn't need to be, especially regarding vaccinations.

    Trying to speak your language bro. Whenever a scientist takes a skeptical position on politically charged subjects like anthropogenic climate change or vaccinations, and their field is not within or related to those fields, this fact is quickly seized and used as a weapon. Now, not only skepticism but failing to clap is being attacked, even when the failing to clap is for the same reason that the skeptics were attacked with.

    At some point the pretense of "science" is going to be ditched for the simple chant of "one of us", and all failures to clap will once again be subject to being disappeared.

    ... :rolleyes: typical left-wing jargon, as expected from you. Like i said, about as dense as a piece of cardboard.


    ---------------------

    Anyone that seriously thinks Sanders is a legitimate candidate needs to have their life reevaluated. That man is not fit to be the POTUS.
