So if you're a democrat and support Bernie Sanders, whatever. You need to pick up an economics textbook but fine. But how can a democrat support Hillary Clinton who violated federal law and is as visibly corrupt as can be?

I hate the Democratic Party (and understand economics, yes) but I think Sanders will be a decent choice. I dislike how he had to pander to BLM but it's not like he had a choice with a question that loaded.

When it gets right down to it, they all agree on the same things, but Hillary gets the crowd because she's

A. A supposedly strong woman
B. Related to Bill.

the democrats are in the process of turning on their white male electorate (not their politicians mind you), the edgy teenage white liberals of today will find their party will openly despise them when they reach voting age.

This is evident in their attempts to not only demonize the white man, but to also encourage non white growth and animosity between sexes. They won't need white males when they have a nation of Juans and Zoes.

He was in the Navy, yet also a marine?

Also I'm going to need a source, this sounds like a fabrication and is contradicted by wikipedia. I know that sourcing wiki is stretchy but I find their articles on major public figures somewhat reliable.

"During the 1960s and '70s Sanders was active in several peace and antiwar movements. He was a member of the Student Nonviolent Coordinating Committee and the Student Peace Union while attending the University of Chicago. Sanders applied for conscientious objector status during the Vietnam War but his application was turned down, though by then he was too old to be drafted. Although he opposed the war, Sanders never placed any blame on those who fought and has been a strong supporter of veteran's benefits."

Democrat debate so far.

- Sanders sounds like a rambling grandpa

- O'Malley is a cunt
- Webb is the best Democrat, but not a good speaker

Who is Chafee and why is he there?

Webb is really aggressive and isn't given a lot of time to speak. I want to hear more from him, honestly.

O'Malley's voice is annoying and he's pointing fingers because he hasnt done anything to be called out on.

Sanders is surprisingly silent, and his most viable stance is the opening 2 minutes. He doesn't seem to have a foreign plan, and seems weak on gun rights. Because of this, he is easy piclings to the debators.

I don't know why, but I feel like Hillary has barely gotten called out on when she honestly should have. Also, the questions don't even seem like they're even digging deep into her ideologies unlike the rest. I'm not conspiring anything, but she holds the advantage because she hasn't been dinged yet.

So it's finally time for the Democrat Debate today, Hillary shills can no longer hide.

The candidates will be: Clinton, Sanders, O'Malley, Webb and Chafee.

Here's my thoughts on the candidates:

- Clinton is probably the most skilled and experienced debater of all of them, however she will be facing the toughest battle. She is fighting against negative media, dropping polls and four candidates who are staunchly anti-Hillary and are likely going to attack her record. One wrong step and it'll damage her.

- Sanders has probably the biggest advantage in this debate. More popular than the minor candidates and not faced with the bad reputation of Clinton. Plus with the fact that progressive/populist talking points are likely to dominate (BLM, Minimum Wage, Criminal reform, TPP) it'll show his strong points. His archilles heel however might be his inconsistent stance on gun rights which is likely to be discussed.

- O'Malley is a minor candidate but more popular than Chafee and Webb. O'Malley has the chance of making a sudden rise in the polls in this debate a la Fiorina. His strongest point is that he can portray himself as a more moderate mainstream Sanders especially on gun control but his biggest weakness is his questionable governor record especially regarding police brutality.

- Webb is the most conservative Democrat running, and this is what will likely make this debate very difficult for him. His most notable difference from other candidates is his pro-gun stance and with the recent mass shootings being a Democrat for gun rights is like suicide.

- Chafee is the worst polling candidate between the five and for a good reason. He's uncharismatic and has pretty much nothing whatsoever to make him stand out. His biggest attempt to stand out was being anti-war but it's no different from the anti-hillary candidates. His biggest selling point might be being a former Republican

That's pretty much what I was figuring.

Bernie Sanders gets a chance to be heard by the mainstream Democratic base. Also since he differs with the other candidates on quite a few issues, he'll probably have a lot of focus on him. If he doesn't have any major gaffes, the night should go well for him.

Martin O'Malley will probably have a great breakout if he stays solid, especially if he can differentiate himself from Hillary in any way. I'd expect him to gain a lot from Biden supporters who are starting to cast doubt on him running.

If the Anybody but Hillary attitude persists, Jim Webb and Lincoln Chafee may be able to pick up some steam.

I can never watch democratic primary debates, I remember during last years election cycle I looked at the crowd and they were all exactly what you'd expect from the democratic voter base, and they would all scream and clap at every stupid talking point the candidates vomited out. Meanwhile I was waiting for someone to call them out on bullshit but none of them did and that was the worst torture.

It's like a cringe challenge for me.

I met someone who actually thought communism would work and that the only reason it is not the system right now is because white males are preventing it from happening.
She did not know china was communist until i told her so.
God damnit i hate normies. Why the fuck do these peoples votes count as much is mine do?

On a related note, how about we made a scantron-test on the backside of each ballot, quizzing the voter on facts regarding economics, sociology, science, education, etc, and then use the % as a proportion of 1 vote?

Voting based on testing can be flawed for a number of reasons;
1. For every given nationalized test, there is the requirement to define arbitrary fields the test will expound upon (see; the SAT, ACT, AP, and IB examinations). These fields will be covered on with numerous books and guides that are sold or demonstrated through pay-for-tutoring programs, the majority of which teach you how to get the highest score based on method of taking the test due to its design, rather than learning the full context behind the information. This in turn means that whoever has the most money to access these resources will be more likely to have the higher score, which isn't complimentary to the belief of a equal opportunity.
2. Deciding the test format. Mathematics is not a field that's favorably covered via scantron, but rather open-ended format, to demonstrate knowledge of exacting at least some of the necessary methods to solve a problem instead of being totally disadvantaged for not recalling one part of the method (knowing a method but forgetting how to translate a trigonometric identity, for instance).
3. Relying on the education of the public schooling system. This is ultimately the main driving factor to such an idea. You can't include fields that aren't covered in every single school. Not every school is funded the same way; some have more money and therefore more opportunities for learning than others. Should one populace's voting power be drastically less than others due to lack of funding - a factor that is easily manipulated from a politician that knows how to play the demographics? In my senior year of high school, I was able to go to a sociology class only because one teacher had pushed for it, and he was also a coach and a history teacher, and he also was in charge of the AP US History and AP English Language Composition. My senior year was the first year that those two classes existed; had I been born a year earlier, I would only be able to complete two AP classes (Chemistry and Physics) with college credits instead of four + sociology (which did not come with college credits regardless). Meanwhile, there are town districts around that have even more funding and even more AP class options and opportunities for a headstart in university.

The main idea is that a nation-wide voting test is greatly hampered by the aspect of a opportunity inequality. Schools that are more funded will likely correlate have stronger voting power populaces. Schools with less funding will correlate the reverse. If you make the test stupidly simple that anyone can succeed, then you end up creating a complicated process of assigning testing locations, scheduling, grading processes, and printing and all the money it costs, for nothing.

If you consider small scale communes reliant on the outside world as communism. But by that definition, there is communism in China too, although just in one village. www.theatlantic.com/photo/2012/10/the-last-maoist-village-in-china/100378/
Although several economic reforms happened and are still happening all over China, I don't think the class character of the state has changed significatively. And economy-wise, 5 year plans are a very big part of the chinese economy.
