Just saying Obama, Bide, or Hillary would have never done this in 1995 or even 2005.

 

 

Just voted for Bernie. Early voting in my state but was a ghost town in there.

The only conservatives I’ve seen who would vote for Biden over Trumps are the group that call themselves “never Trumpers”. Mostly people who just don’t like Trumps personality. Probably a very small percentage of voters. 

Yeah 99 percent of Republicans in states with a general have voted for Trump. It's kind of strange how Republicans hate Obama so much when his crown achievement was a Romney healthcare plan

These clips are daily, and the Democrats are going to run a campaign saying it's acceptable for the role of president. It's reckless and hypocritical, and they should know better.

 

It's like how in Hollywood agents and managers make old celebrities perform well after they should be retired because there's money in it.

Because, Sanders has been weak and cowardly on important issues. She, is the one who has my vote, and my support. As far as to why Tulsi, is still in this ...

You can definitely criticize Sanders from the left. I'm just saying he's 1000x better on those issues than the rest of the Democrats and Tulsi has no chance.

Trump is not helping himself politically with the public panicking and downplaying. For once, the responsible course of action is actually in his best naked political self-interest, but he's not able to see beyond the short-term news cycle.

I’m honestly OK with, “you’re full of sh*t,” but the finger pointing a couple inches from the guy’s face? Nope. We’ve seen this before from him. 
 

 

He also threatened to slap the guy. WTF lol

If Hillary ever did that...

 

hysterical how it’s gone from “Hillary had a layup and screwed up” to “It’ll take incredible strategy to beat Trump” - after he has been abysmal. Excuses for the dudes already..

 

Anyway, Bernie should drop after tonight, if poll results are correct. I doubt he will though. He’s likely to continue to use his staffers to lie about Biden’s “dementia”

LMAO at Tulsi coming in sixth - when there are only three Democrats running - in Michigan. 

 

 

Well … keep laughing honey, cuz guess what?  Trillions of YOUR tax $$, keep going out for the powerful elite,  not to mention the many, many lives lost, that we are KNOWINGLY funding!!  So, yes … let's continue THAT, while our country is falling apart at the seams, and the entire world, is looking upon us, as the worlds police.  The ONLY candidate, that was willing to take that on, was ghosted & smeared. But, by all means …. keep laughing, because the joke, is on us ALL

 

As for myself, as a lifelong democrat, I will be leaving the party, and like most of the country, will become an independent.  Or, if Tulsi, begins a new party, I will join that. The war mongering, deception & corruption, of the DNC & MSM, is not something I want to be a part of, or contribute to. And... I will  write Tulsi's name in during the General Election. Even risking, the re-election of the worst president, I have ever seen.

Game over. Definitely disheartening for people like me who rarely see candidates with their ideology stand a chance (I’m slightly left of Bernie on most issues). 
 

Hopefully Joe is able to win in November. 


To the left of Bernie? What does that look like? Communism? Just curious.

Just on specific issues I’m to his left. I wouldn’t consider myself a full blown socialist as I don’t want the government to take over coffee shops and mattress stores, but I do have some “radical” ideas (for the US anyway) in regards to taxes on the super rich, drugs, prostitution, and etc...

If you were in charge, would Bernie be able to keep all three houses?

 

Anyway, I’m convinced that guy would be a full blown Communist if he thought he could get enough support to get re-elected.

I didn't respond to your earlier post, but considering this one is very similar - let me say, I agree with you in regard to our overseas altercations that have lasted longer than many people turning 18 have been alive. That's perhaps my greatest area of agreement with Tulsi and that's why I have enjoyed her presence in the race and on the debate stage. I also agree with Bernie Sanders that income inequality, lack of affordable health care, housing, etc is a massive issue. All that said, the math is the math. Bernie underperformed his 2016 run, which was surprising to me and I wouldn't have predicted. Why that is, whether some of them back then were anti-Clinton votes, I'm not sure. But it's now clear that Biden will be the nominee. The states that are yet to vote all look favorable to him and the public has decided that defeating Trump and righting the ship remains the most important thing this time around. 

 

I've supported Democratic candidates and Republican ones. The majority of the time, my original choice hasn't prevailed. Your responsibility as a citizen isn't to throw your hands up and refuse to make a decision, or writing in a name. Because by doing that, you are making a decision. You're saying that four more years of President Trump is fine by you. Let me also say, I've also been there. Joe Biden wasn't my original choice in this election (Mayor Pete, then Bloomberg, now it's Biden). That said, if you look at the numbers, he's able to turnout white working class voters and African Americans that didn't show up in large enough numbers last time. He will serve one term, put together a competent team, choose a running mate that's capable of running the country and move to pass the torch to the next generation. I would just say, consider carefully before you decide to throw your vote away.

☹️ No choice but to vote for Joe in November. I live in ground zero for climate change so its important to get someone in there who will at least take quarter measures insted of actively try to make it worse.

 

Plus we are on RBG death away from abortion being illegal in like 2/3 of states. And if that happens everyone knows those on the right have no plans to combat the poverty and other dysfunction that would ensue.

 

It is obvious that we need a viable third party though. Because on the majority of issues Dems and Republicans play for the same team.

Yes. Nothing wrong with being successful or having money. My issue comes from people who are so rich that they hoard wealth while we have kids going hungry and veterans sleeping on the street. 
 

I’m of the belief system that there can be haves and have nots, but on a much less extreme scale.

I appreciate what Tulsi is saying now but tbh she voluntarily joined the military after 9/11 when we attacked the wrong people and made a mess. In a way, she is also involved in propping up the war machine system.
