Is Former Texas Governor Rick Perry the first candidate to fall?

Indicted Rick Perry Quits Paying His Staff Because His Campaign Is Going Broke

Quote:
Most Perry staffers are soldiering on without pay, determined to keep the struggling candidate in the race. While the campaign’s funds have dried up, a pro-Perry super PAC is still flush with cash and can compensate for some of the campaign’s shortcomings. The super PAC however cannot coordinate efforts with the Perry campaign.

The only current candidates, with any percentage in polls, to not obviously bought and paid for are Trump and Sanders. ALL the others, to one degree or another, have their super pacs, and millions from large donors who, as Trump has said; "are expected to perform for those giving the money". I listen to the talking heads and not a one of them have even mentioned this simple fact yet they continue to wonder why so many candidates are not polling well. I would suggest that people are simply sick and tired of all the ranked candidates being beholden to whoever.

In the same vein I would also suggest that the two major democratic senators; Menendez and Shumer, voting against the Iran deal are more interested in their cozy relationship with Israel than an interest in what makes sense. These two should be unelected and encouraged to move the the country that actually has their loyalty.

How about this: http://www.washingtonsblog.com/2015/08/3...-iran-deal.html

Bernie not only does not accept corporate donations, but he won't sling mud at the other candidates-A man who will run on the issues!

YAY! Someone finally speaking the truth. ThumbsUp (I meant, of course, Bernie) not the Palin.

The mudslinging and bad behavior has already begun.
No, not the mudslinging between the candidates, the mudlinging between the various supporters on social media.

Already liberals are demonstrating how easy they are to beat by exhibiting behaviors not previously seen in right wing groups, threats to stay home and not vote if their candidate doesn't get the party nomination, threats to vote for Republican candidates...
Hillary people are bashing Bernie people, Bernie people are bashing Hillary people and all this despite the fact that Bernie has publicly stated that he will not play the negative card on his female opponent.

I had to leave the Facebook "Bernie Believers" group for just that reason.
I got tired of being accused of being a Hillary mole and tired of the constant whining.

Jeffery~You are correct. Although I have seen some ask that we do not bash Bernie, Hillary or each other, I do not see a lot of cooperation. I actually had one group say that if Hillary doesn't get the nomination he will commit suicide, and he said he will blame all those who vote for other candidates in the Democratic Primary. rolleyes A lot of people then told him he was playing right into the hands of the GOP. He then changed his tune, but I thought he was an idiot.

I think we could stand the loss of one vote, if it removed such an idiot from the gene pool. There is such a thing as "common good" that helps both Democrats and Republicans. Everything is not a zero-sum game.
