Now corporations will have less of a say in our daily lives with the quisling Republican Lite types out of power. This heralds a turning in the tide of American politics. The whole country decides to throw the corporatist GOP party under the bus and the democratic voters throw out the corporatist leadership of the party, all in the same election cycle. I call that a bloodless revolution - only in the USA.
Answer the call for unity. Answer the call for change. Answer the call for victory in the White House, the Senate, the House, and in State Houses all over America. The progressive left is the future in America. The youth have thrown away the old paradigms as obsolete. They watched as we were lied into war and >1,000,000 civilians died. They watched as New Orleans was washed into the gulf and how a conservative administration responds to its citizens NOT in the top 1% SES. They see how our generation handled an imperial president and are dissappointed. The past is being put behind us by our children and young adults. My 14 y/o daughter is involved, paying attention and livid she can't vote this year. The writing is on the wall. We can fight it, or guide it. The country is evolving and we can adapt or become obsolete ourselves.
For better or for worse, Hillary represents our past, Barack our future.
The train is leaving and we all have tickets! Climb aboard and we'll have one hell of a party on 11/4, TOGETHER!
kept track of. In TX you just show up and vote for the party primary you care to vote in. TX does not keep track of who is in which party. And, as for GOP votes for HRC, at least here in TX they are mostly in spite, they are laughing at her, not with her!
I am a Pct Chair for Collin Co. That night I was the election judge for our side at a polling place covering 4 pct's. It was a long day, starting at 6 AM. MANY of my known rethuglican neighbors signed in at my table. The GOP crossover was significant in the day voting. They did not stay for caucuses. The 4 different Pct conventions went smooth enough with only one getting a little rough from some disgruntled HRC supporters because there was no Pct Chair and the BHO folks actually ran that Pct convention. I helped supervise all 4 Pct conventions and made sure the rules were being followed, then took the poll lists around and made sure all the voter reg ID#'s were on the caucus rolls. I left to take my poll materials to HQ at 11:15 PM. There was NO fraud in my sphere of influence and because of the late night many went home before being able to be selected as a delegate to the county convention.
Even at the county convention there was attrition. We started out the day with a full slate of delegates and each candidate caucus lost 33-50% of its delegates before the vote to send someone to state (that occurred at 11:45 PM, the convention ended at 0730 AM the next morning.)
I'm not trying to discount PJ's diary, I'm just saying that the discrepancy in TX between Primary and Caucus returns in my opinion was directly related to Mr Limbutt's request 4 days prior, to have the GOP come out to cross over; and that there were plenty of area's around the Co. that had relatively smooth if not protracted caucus evenings.
