    Kind of like Metta except he doesn't regurgitate solely from gay sites?

    Awesome!! He obviously is an issue candidate who knows he can't win but is hoping to pull Hillary leftward/towards the progressive side of things.
    When was the last time we were surprised in politics?? I view this as a good thing. It makes things interesting instead of being merely a coronation for the dems.

    He could make things very difficult for the hapless Hillary ho which would be good for the democrats because he is much more qualified to be President than that aging, power hungry whore.

    The "Woodsmen" is simply a copy and paste sales rep for The New York Times. You will get no intelligent response from the "Woodsmen" at all.

    He sometimes does more than cut and paste. He will change the title and even source material if it furthers the point he wants to make. Completely dishonest but he made an excuse for doing it. They all do.

    According to the above article he became independent. He is as independent as Bernie Sanders is independent.
