More importantly, someone needs to primary Gabbard.

I'm not against this (obviously) but at least half of the Democratic caucus is more worthy of a primary challenge. She's a charlatan like most politicians but her "public beliefs" are far better than the average Dem. congressperson, even when you take her erratic foreign policy views into account.

McCain has his uses nowadays, so him.

Angela Rayner or Nina Turner?

Supporting an immoral ideology is a grave moral failing. To claim otherwise means to be fundamentally unserious about one's political beliefs.

Of course, everyone has their moral failings and we shouldn't be too quick to judge people for them, but I thought "terrible person" was pretty widely accepted forum hyperbole for someone who does something that's clearly bad and is unrepentant about it.

Came here to post this.

Disappointing compared to your previous signatures. (All of which were classics, BTW)

Freedom and "free" markets are not compatible

Yep. Right-"Libertarianism" advocates for policies fundamentally incompatible with the concept of human liberation.

I would put my money on Angela Merkel, Obama, Roosevelt, or MLK, but definitely not Kim Jong un, Hugo Chavez, or Sanders.

Merkel (?!!!) and Obama? Are you serious?

Beth Fukumoto is also considering running. I would prefer it if she won the primary, she could be Hirono’s replacement in the Senate once she retires, and hold down the seat for decades as is Hawaiian tradition.

I would hope that the bluest state in the country elects someone who isn't just a Republican that thinks Trump is a meanie.

Hawai'i has a pretty long history of having representatives who don't live in their district; for a good chunk of the last decade or so, the two reps have in fact lived in each others' districts. Most of the prominent Second District candidates in the past 20 or so years have lived in Honolulu; heck, the district office for the Second District is located in the Prince Kuhio Federal Building, which is in the First District. The incumbent in the First District, Colleen Hanabusa, previously ran for the Second District seat in 2003 and 2006 and lives in Waiʻanae, which is in the Second, not the First.

So that is to say, a candidate's place of residence in Hawai'i really is not issue as it might be in some other states.

Thoughts on Flawless Beautiful (and yes, he is flawless as well as beautiful) Ing's prospects?

None of us will be around when Merkel finally calls it quits.

Tim Ryan isn't an impressive politician or orator, and I don't see how he's a Working Class Hero when he was just batting for reducing the corporate tax rate like a week ago.

I really don't know anything about any non-Schroeder (too lazy to add an umlaut, sorry) SPD Chancellors so I'm hoping that I gain something from this thread.

Just found on Facebook from June 5th that Jeff Bartos, Scott Wagner's running mate, accused Larry Krasner of winning his District Attorney race using funds from George Soros.

I'm a Krasner Bro but that's not a conspiracy theory at all.

Anyway, I'm more interested in the Dem. primary for LG - Go Fetterman!


I theoretically love Fetterman, but I hear the reason Bernie never endorsed him in 2016 is that Fetterman couldn't pass vetting. Watch him go down as another perpetrator of sexual assault/harrasement.

But the conspiracy nut who challenged DWS passed Bernie's vetting? If that's the case then I shudder to think what would happen if he had to choose a VP.

Hopefully he chooses Warren in 2020. (which is what Hillary should've done last year)

Huh
15  Presidential Elections - Analysis and Discussion / 2020 U.S. Presidential Election / Re: Rasmussen poll on best Dem. candidate: Biden 41 Sanders 20 Warren 11 Clinton 9 on: November 22, 2017, 07:48:35 pm
I actually don't think that Sanders will be the nominee, but it's pretty obvious that inevitable sexual misconduct allegations are going to destroy Biden before he even announces.

That said, the hand-wringing about the old man's chances on the first page of this thread reeks of wishful thinking, IMO. Not only is Sanders in an astronomically superior position in terms of national recognition (and, needless to say, popularity) than he was almost two years ago, he is also unlikely to face a candidate backed by a united party establishment candidate in the form of Clinton, and that isn't even bringing up his residual infrastructural advantage that could allow him to win Iowa and New Hampshire fairly handily. (Though with California moving it's primary up, this will likely matter less than it did in past contests)

god you are the absolute worst

Thank You! It's a compliment from such a person.

Smoltchanov, do you understand why a fourteen-year old sexual assault victim (in Alabama, nonetheless) might not go through with making a public accusation against an assistant district attorney? Do you have any empathy for the experiences of other human beings, particularly traumatized minors who were molested by a person in a position of power?

Maybe it's the language barrier, but half of your posts seems rather deranged and off-base

I don't care about how they seems to other. I wanted to say something, and i did that. BTW, my English was always considered to be good. So, it's not (most likely) a language barrier, it's a different mentality...

Uh, no? Your English is embarrassingly bad, even if one is generous enough to take into account the fact that your native tongue uses a completely different script.

Seriously, what does "I don't care about how they seems to other" even mean? Are you saying that you don't care whether or not other people can comprehend what you say? If so, then isn't the whole point of this whole, you know, language thing rendered pretty much obsolete?

Nope. The ruling class is ridden with sociopaths.

Americans don't realize we are at war with those who want to destroy us. Don't let the liberal media tell you Saddam didn't have WMDs that he would funnel to Al-Qaeda. Listen to Georges Sada and Hannity.

Darryl Worley- Have You Forgotten?

What's the point of this charade? If you're going to play a character on the internet, at least choose one based off a more prescient archetype, i.e. not some neocon weirdo from the early noughties.

You hate Dubya more than Cruz ?

Cruz's political positions are obviously even worse than Bush's (though, needless to say, it's not like there's a good difference between them ideologically - Cruz's True Believer-ism is just a product of his time. If Bush was a modern politician, he'd certainly adapt to the post-2010 GOP landscape with ease) but considering that Bush was able to do the damage that only an American President has the power to do, he's clearly the worse of the two.

I'm honored! Cheesy

Opposition to communism is a justifiable position (and one that I share), obviously. That said, negative distortion of socialist ideas is, unfortunately, one of the few things the American public school system excels at, and most instructors end up explaining communism in the way shown in my signature.

Democratic nominee Meg Whitman is one of the most disturbing things I can think of. God help us.
