If we in fact had less spying, less authoritarian security measures, a more restrained foreign policy, and ended the war on drugs, we'd be well on our way to cutting 43%.

I don't think its denial. I think they just don't care. Or they care more about making money than they do about the country their grandchildren will have to live in.

What early exit polls are showing today? Who won all the primaries?

This is the crux of the climate change problem. People won't save for their own retirement, but we expect them to fork over more money to subsidize technologies and regulations that are aimed at preserving the planet someone else will inherit 200 years from now. Good luck.

The real problem with libertarians is they are the same as vegans or crossfitters. It's all they talk about and they try to convert people with down talking.

Riiight.

didn't Ross Perot give a similar excuse when he first stepped down in the 92 elections ?

Looks like Trump is going to win Michigan and Mississippi. Cruz and Rubio falling further behind.

We'll see what the delegate count is for these states.  Trump has about 1/3 of what he needs and about 1/3 of the total delegates have been pledged.  The big ones will be IL, FL, and OH in the short term because they're winner take all/most.  CA is another one that has an insane amount of delegates in a winner take most scenario.  If Kaisich can win even a couple of these Midwest states, we're headed for a brokered convention I think.

GOP Super PACs are coming up entirely empty this election cycle.

Delegates won
1,237 needed for nomination · 1,459 available
Trump 446
Cruz 347
Rubio 151
Kasich 54


Trump needs to win 54% of remaining delegates to brake the 1237 and even then 10-20% of delegates may simply abandon him at convention. Third party run is imminent. Clinton will be the next president . Thank you GOP idiots.
TERM LIMITS NOW!

The real story here is that there are enough morons sharing this image on FB that it's become a problem.

The article says the "artist" keeps reposting the picture herself. For that she receives short-term suspensions of her account.

If it'd been a picture of Obama she'd have been banned permanently, immediately, I expect.

I think that's possible, but don't forget that several large states such as CA, IL, and FL are winner take all or most.  So if if he wins all of those, that's like 400-500 delegates just from those states.
