    it doesn't matter when fucking NY people went Hillary smfh
    Besides, there was a lot of serious rigging going on in NY. ... independents not being able to vote,... It's all a setup,.

    I remember in my political science class in high school, my teacher explained how the voting process worked in our state (NY). One thing that he emphasized was that when registering to vote, even if you do not back either of the 2 main political party's, you should register as one of them so that you can vote in the primary.

    So I did.

    And for YEARS, I've been telling friends, family, and acquaintances who registered independent that they are making a mistake; that someday you are going to want to vote in the primary and you wont be able to, and also because my city/district is so democrat-biased, that the democratic primary might as well be the general election in a lot of local races. They all brushed off my warning, likely because the Republican and Democratic nominees for the POTUS are usually decided before we get to vote in the primary (and the POTUS elections are all most people care about).

    And NOW THEY WHINE, because they couldn't vote for Bernie Sanders. Hate the system all they want, but they were fucking warned. It wasn't rigged in this regard, those voters fucked up and should take responsibility for it.

    Period.

    Hold on to your butts, boys:

    Ohio Gov. John Kasich will suspend his presidential campaign on Wednesday, a senior campaign adviser tells NBC News.

    Kasich cancelled a press conference in Virginia earlier in the day and announced he would make a statement in Columbus, Ohio, Thursday afternoon.

    The decision comes one day after Kasich finished a distant third in the Indiana primary. Top campaign aides vowed that the governor would stay in the race, even after Ted Cruz, who formed an informal alliance with Kasich, suspended his campaign.

    Kasich will end his run with just one primary victory in his home state of Ohio. He remained in the race long after he was mathematically eliminated, arguing that no candidate will gain enough delegates to secure the GOP nomination ahead of the convention in Cleveland, Ohio, this summer.

    But Donald Trump's commanding win in Indiana on Tuesday paved the way for him to earn a majority 1,237 delegates, making him the party's likely nominee. Party leaders like Republican National Committee Chair Reince Priebus called Trump the "presumptive nominee" even with Kasich still in the race.

    "You embarrass me," said Shadow, smiling. Then Shadow took his penis out and picked Cream up. "Let me charge up for a super ejaculation!" Shadow laid Cream down on the ground and then took his penis with him, which was already huge and shaking with sex energy, and found Cream's Piggy Bank, which was full of coins and dollars and things to save up for money, so she could buy what she wanted when she had enough inside it. Shadow took it and using his muscular penis, smashed a hole right through the piggy bank so now it was sitting on top of his penis like a hat. Shadow's penis looked like it belonged in a fashion show.

    All this hope for bernie sanders is hillarious.

    Dude is fucking done.

    If he runs as a indepenent, the democrats are gonna flame him alive for "breaking" his promise when it comes to supporting Hillary. In fact, the democrats are depending and eying the people he has brough into politics.

    Something along the lines of

    He's built a very valuable base of over 2 million donators to his campaign. And brought in a lot of young voters along with white males.

    If that doesn't convince you the insidious nature of the democratic party, then you deserve to fucking get got for being that stupid.

    I fucking dream of a Sanders Trump campaign now. I can only imagine that shit now. America would accend to greatness and leave all these fucking loser countries in the dust.

    LOL, he said this guy is the equivalent of muslims who join isis, and she says yes, exactly. This is why i hate americans. He just drew an equal sign to your protesting nephew to a group of sociopathic, murdering, raping, terrorist, and you just say, yeah sure. No, running on stage to try to grab the mic and have a moment, or back flipping and landing on his head is not the same as anyone in isis.

    Trump supporters never cease to be anything other than useless humans. I love it though. I love that america finally got exposed for the amount of stupid assholes it has living in it, and why things dont progress, or progress slow as fuck in this country.

    Bunch of entitled, stupid, crackas that couldnt even take advantage of a "system" that had their backs every step of the way decades. So now its everyone elses fault they cant make fisher price toys in bum fuck alabama, because the jobs went to china. Its black peoples fault that white people are racist, and in fact black people are the most racist people in america. Its the mexicans fault for taking all their farm and landscaping jobs, and if we just got rid of the mexicans, they could cut grass for 8 dollars an hour again in 98 degree weather. Its the muslims fault for terrorism, regardless of any western nations involvement in middle eastern politics that led to the rise of said groups.

    I'm not sure you're right on that. There seems to a belief that Trump supporters are poor white people, but exit polls don't line up with that statement. Trump supports earn above the average in America, and earn more than Hilary supporters on average.

    Rather than being poor white people, it seems Trump supporters tend to be male, white voters who don't like the direction America is going, and are attracted to Trumps alpha male personality and his complete lack of PCness.

    It is entertaining watching the left try to paint Donald Trump as a sexist and a racist even though that can't point to a single example of actual sexism or racism. If they kept shouting it long enough it'll magically come true I guess.

    The overwhelming amount of violent crime IS committed by blacks and hispanics. https://www.fbi.gov/about-us/cjis/ucr/crime-in-the-u.s/2012/crime-in-the-u.s.-2012/tables/43tabledatadecoverviewpdf When you look at the stats that the FBI have bare in mind that black people only make up 13% of the US population while white people make up %60. Telling the truth is not racist.

Telling the truth is not racist.

    The number of white people who sell drugs and the number of black people who sell drugs is roughly the same, but a black person is almost 3 times more likely to get arrested. http://www.brookings.edu/blogs/social-mobility-memos/posts/2014/09/30-war-on-drugs-black-social-mobility-rothwell. So the criminal justice system is rigged against black people, but you wanna use those stats to say that "LOL NUMBERS, PROOF THAT THEY'RE CRIMINALS!" when in reality, white people can be just as criminal but they don't get punished nearly as often.

    Also, the data from your source, regardless of the fact that there's more whites than blacks still supports the theory that white people are committing the majority of crime.

    I'm sorry, what does that have to do with black people committing the majority of violent crimes in major cities? So, you agree that Trump told the truth and didn't make a racist comment? Good to hear.

    See, I knew inbreeders such as yourself were stupid, so I can't even be mad at your lack of reading comprehension. Again, whites are just as likely to commit drug crimes, but blacks are arrested more. On top of that, your data only proves that WHITES are the criminals the majority of the time. So for you to use these mental gymnastics to trick your pea brain in that neanderthal skull of yours into believing that people have a predisposition to committing crime just because their skin is rich with melanin. You're a fucking twat.

    For the record, I don't believe that whites are innate criminals for being white. Anyone can be a criminal, but it just so happens to be the case that white people commit more crime.

    Let's recap. You said Donald Trump was a racist because he made a true statement. You were shown proof of his statement. You attempt to change the subject to something that has nothing to do with your original statement instead of admitting you're wrong. Once that fails you decide to hurl insults. I can see why you are anti-Trump.

I can see why you are anti-Trump.

    Let me destroy your shitty argument:

    1. Donald Trumps statement is false, based off the evidence YOU provided in addition to mine.
    2. Your proof further validates my point, which is that whites commit more crime, not blacks or hispanics. You tried to justify how stupid your use of your source was by saying that there are far more white people. My source states that whites are just as likely, if not more, to commit the crimes, but blacks are more likely to actually get punished for it.
    3. I'm not changing the subject at all, and if you think my source has nothing to do with this argument then you're an even bigger retard than I imagined. I'm not going to "admit I'm wrong" if YOUR OWN SOURCE proves you're wrong.
    4. Of course I'm going to insult you. You're a fucking loon. If you want to cry about it, then that just shows how much of a pussy you are. What happened to being anti-PC Mr. Trump supporter?
    5. If none of this makes sense to you then I can see why you're a pro-Trump supporter.

    Sarcasm aside, the simple fact that he says the overwhelming majority of crime is committed by blacks and hispanics despite clear evidence that that's not the case (which was referenced earlier) is at the very least willful ignorance based off of prejudices in his mind. If his tweet isn't an example of even slight racism, then I don't know what qualifies as racism anymore.

    what has trump said that is racist or sexist?

    Hillary got scholonged? LOFL please
    Mexico is sending us their worst? Listen to what Vicente Fox and Pena Nieto say about the flux of migrants
    Majority of violent crime in urban cities done by minorities? That's a fact, nobody is talking about rural areas
    He wants to deport illegals saying america is for americans, that's not racism that's nationalism

    Trump is a lot of things, racist or sexist are not and those things are the least surrounding a trump presidency.

    Rocket, the keywords are "violent crime", and "major cities". It's true, if only because he's being kind of narrow in the scope of crimes referenced. You're reading it as "The majority of crimes are committed by blacks and Hispanics", which strips all the qualifiers.
    Trump's not a problem because of racism or sexism, honestly. The thing is, he's WILDLY inconsistent, shows little regard for rules and structures in place when they don't help him, and distorts reality until he's right, case in point having all those qualifiers in that statement.
