Bill and Chelsea talking in Iowa

behind them is a banner that states "We will maintain". Is there anything more obvious than that? Maintaining the status quo will kill the party and hurt everyone, even the wealthy. But, by God, let's not strive for anything better.

Disgusting!

They are standing in front of the Iowa state motto:

Our liberties we prize and our rights we maintain.

4. What horrible idea

We know why. They are and their friends are making like bandits in this system.

http://www.democraticunderground.com/12511097029

Politically speaking this is horrible strategy. When only ~15% of the population shows up in a caucus, they don't who show because they want to maintain the status qua. Even if you convince the voters that this is the correct path, most will decide not to show up.

8. Back in the late 60s and early 70s, "maintaining" was something

you did after smoking some on your way to visit your parents. It was important to "maintain" in those circumstances. Same thing if you got stopped by the Highway Patrol for driving too slowly on your way to your parents' house. Maintaining was a skill one learned.

The definitions of words tend to change over time, I guess.
