Adoring this policy and pushing the senate (if Dems win, of course) to adopt would greatly help Sanders be an effective president.

Also you're kidding yourself if you think Dems wouldn't mostly fall in line behind a Sanders presidency.

I got this text today:

Quote :
"This is (name) with Bernie. He just said he's running for PRESIDENT and asked us to text previous supporters to ask if they're in. Are you?"


I said:
Quote :
"I'm not sure yet."


He said:
Quote :
"Ok, I understand and thanks for letting me know! Have a great day."


Surefire way to NOT earn my vote is not take the time to try to convince me when clearly I'm at least open to it. That's not Bernie's fault of course, but come on guy.

Bad response, but it's not like they're personalizing them. It's some low level aide just clicking a button or checkbox.

If you say yes they ask you for money.

Also, PRESIDENT in caps like that reminds me of baller = you.

I actually think Bernie’s response was about as perfect, politically, he could have done. It was measured and careful not to imply anything.

Between this and his forceful acknowledgment about some of the complaints about his campaigns mistreatment of women and minorities I think he has had an excellent roll out for 2020.

the tulsi gabbard faction of the left have been completely duped when it comes to russia and have just decided to dig in their heels and ride the sinking ship all the way down

"Short-sighted politicians & media pundits who've spent last 2 years accusing Trump as a Putin puppet have brought us the expensive new Cold War & arms race. How? Because Trump now does everything he can to prove he’s not Putin’s puppet—even if it brings us closer to nuclear war."

That whole faction is just bizarre. They completely take away any Trump agency. All his shitty decisions are simply reactions to MSNBC. They force him to increase the drone war, put pressure on Venezuela, etc. I guess it’s a defense mechanism because a lot of these same people were writing “a left defense for trump” pieces in 2016?

Also, saw a sweet chryon from FNC last night. Laura Ingraham and Glenn Greenwald split screen with chryon that read “Putin Collusion with Nancy Pelosi.”

this should disqualify any candidate
Beto O'Rourke Says He's "No Longer Sure" Single-Payer Is The Best Way To Get To Universal Health Care
"Over time, I hope Medicare has the investment and buy-in necessary that people choose to leave employer-based insurance instead of being forced to," O'Rourke said in Iowa.

Yang's platform is 1000 for everybody each month?

Sure ok. How we payin for that?

Beto - seems like a slimeball from what they've been able to dig up on him so far. Prove me wrong. I'll just feel the Bern at this point.

^^ don’t give corporations a huge tax break when they are already sitting on record breaking hordes of cash.

Done. Plenty of money left over for other shit too.

"how we paying for that" is generally a bad faith question coming from a conservative considering all the deficit spending and tax breaks they love when in power....


BUT universal basic income would carve out a chunk of the current social safety net as it is meant to act as that safety net, so there is a chunk that already exists. UBI would also replace alot of the red tape involved in applying for some of those programs, so there is a lesser but non negligible chunk. Then, half the country would turn around and pay at least 20% of that back in taxes.

Finally, tax the rich, tax wealth, tax Bezos.

^This. Exactly this.

I am open to Harris convincing me she's actually changed her views, and the same for Gabbard, but not enough has been done yet and either will have an easier time convincing me 4-to-8 years down the road when more time has passed between the terrible things they've advocated for and actually doing things in Congress to go the other way.
