Democrats need to think about the vote of Independents
If all the primaries had been open (or at least semi-open to allow independents to vote), Bernie Sanders would be faring much, much better right now. He is usually winning the independent vote 2:1 to 5:1 over Hillary Clinton. In November, we cannot win with Democrats alone, we need to think about which candidate has the strongest appeal to them (and third party voters, eligible voters that rarely vote, and millennials). That's Bernie.

Register new voters. Some critical deadlines approaching:  
How to register to vote for Bernie 
How to vote for Bernie in each state

USA Today revealed on April 19th that U.S. air forces have been operating under looser rules of engagement in Iraq and Syria since last fall. The war commander, Lt Gen McFarland, now orders air strikes that are expected to kill up to 10 civilians without prior approval from U.S. Central Command, and U.S. officials acknowledge that air strikes are killing more civilians under the new rules.

Idealist, free thinker, I am a leaf on the wind.
Information and Indian Food Addict.  

Have interests in architecture, science, activism, photography, art, charitable groups, politics, education, gaming, world events, and many other topics.

If you circle me what are you going to get?
A lot of news and stories on issues that interest me from the categories above.  And an occasional light or funny post interspersed. 

Stay on topics, and try to keep it relevant the majority of the time.  I'll try to be respectful, and welcome respectful responses back, even if I disagree with them.  I will challenge your views if I disagree though, but I will try to keep to the topic and not make it personal.  I expect the same from comments on my posts.  Keep it friendly.  That doesn't mean you can't disagree with me, that just means try to do it politely.  

I'm not religious, but friendly to those who are who are open to other views.  Those that try to push or force their views will get challenged back. So if you can't handle that, you might not want to circle me.

I'm not perfect and don't expect anyone to be perfect either.  People make mistakes, I know I do.
