Americans, do you really need the electoral college?

Hi there, Romanian here. The whole caucus-process is beyond my reasoning and seems to be extremely inefficient and unfair. Also, the whole "race to 271" seems extremely un-democratic to me, as an example 49% of Florida's voters could've stayed at home because their votes didn't matter at all in the end.

How about – Only primaries. – No threshold for delegates. – More votes, more delegates. – No exact number of delegates needed for the nom, just having the most. – The candidate with the most votes during the election wins.

I really respect the US and we admire your economy, but elections just aren't democratic imo.

Canvassing in Rural Areas

Donate and support us on Patreon! https://www.patreon.com/bePatron?c=1785147

Hello! I live in Wyoming and am from South Dakota. I want to reach out to people in the rural areas (pop. < 100) but I feel as if there's safety concern with this approach and I'll be perceived as too naive (I'm a 20 y/o college student). To others that have canvassed in rural areas, what were your experiences? Also these are far redder states compared to what we've won so far and Wyoming and South Dakota will certainly go to Trump in 2020.

Thanks 🙂

I'm fortunate enough to have a decent income. I want to do my part to help get Bernie the nomination and ultimately the Presidency. I believe that this man cares about us, and will FIGHT for us. I want to help him help us!!!

Why tax the billionaires?

Donate and support us on Patreon! https://www.patreon.com/bePatron?c=1785147

One argument I rarely see is that the billionaires build their wealth over a social structure that was not constructed by themselves, it was constructed by the people and ultimately by the state. This social structure is a leverage to anyone of us but money and the inherent power it brings acts as a force multiplier. This is why the rich can make more money easily than the rest of us, because the have a larger multiplying factor. In other words, multiply whatever you like by zero, you will get zero.

This is why we as a society need to level the field or the society will degrade and no longer be that leverage to wealth. We can level the field by taxing and redistributing or we can level the field by imposing investment in some sort of wealth cap, above a certain amount all the capital must be invested in new developments, in higher salaries, etc.

If we think, allowing the rich to become richer and the poor to become poorer is the same as destroying the social fabric, redistributing wealth that was generated using the social fabric is maintaining the social fabric to continue to generate wealth and opportunities.
