  • OMFG! The Democrat Presidential Debate disaster

    CNN just held the latest round of Democrat Presidential candidates debate. What a complete waste of time that was. The CNN panel asking questions asked such leading ones, for the most part, that it hurt just watching that. Worse, the various contenders answered with their pat lines on Socialism, big government, tax the rich, etc., that I wondered how the hell anyone in their right mind would vote for any of them.

    I was surprised that one guy on the stage tried to actually be a moderate. That was John Delaney. He has no chance of winning the nomination, but I was actually impressed that he tried to be a reasonable moderate. At several points the other candidates, particularly Pocahontas (aka Lizzy Warren... sort of like Lizzy Borden... ) got major butt hurt over his positions. It was clear to me from their responses to him that a moderate has no place in the Democrat party on the national level anymore.

    With the exception of John Delaney, these were the talking points of the candidates.

          Not if your 'well connected'

          Pendley’s legal ties, as well as his policy positions, have attracted scrutiny. Environmental groups are pressing Interior to formally recuse Pendley from any involvement in a court case in which he is still the counsel of record representing an aging businessman, Sidney Longwell and his small company Solenex.

          Solenex purchased a 6,247-acre lease in northwest Montana in 1982 during the Reagan administration for about $1 an acre. Longwell wants permission to build a six-mile service road and bridge over the Two Medicine River on lands considered sacred by the Blackfeet Tribe. Interior wants to cancel the lease. He would use the road to bring in drilling rigs and other oil exploration equipment.

          “The Department’s career ethics professionals are working closely with Mr. Pendley and will advise him as necessary,” an Interior official saidthe Washington Post

                Gabbard, Delany and Biden are the best bets so far. Especially Gabbard..she could win huge support from Americans conservative and liberal alike.

                  None of the Democrat contenders are worth a vote. Trump isn't either, but I also know that he-- based on accomplishments to date-- won't raise my taxes, ruin the economy, take away private choice on a wide range of issues, won't massively increase government and spending, and basically try his damnedest to ruin my life which is precisely what every Democrat on that stage with one exception said they would do from day one in office.

                  What possible reason do I have to vote for those running on the Democrat ticket? I can live with Trump being a total @$$ and a troll. I'm not electing him as a popularity contest. This isn't one of those idiotic reality shows. This is real life, and my life. I want a thriving and growing economy. I think low unemployment is a good thing. I think telling people from other countries that if they criminally enter the US they're going to get caught and deported is a good thing and they won't have it all that great while they wait to be deported makes it even better.
                  Further, I think that politicians proposing wealth redistribution schemes can take those and shove them where the sun don't shine sideways. I don't buy their victim mentality and dislike intensely the idea that somehow just because you happen to be living and breathing you deserve a whopping big pay check.
                  Every one of the Democrat front runners has made that their platform in a nutshell. Well, they can keep it and they won't get my vote. I'll vote for Shrek... err... Trump and the continued reduction of taxes, government, and a better economy in which individual responsibility is put first.

                    There are many Democratic candidates and they have a multitude of views. The whole raise the tax that some dems want is meant for the rich and wealthy which I disagree with. Btw Trump has been accused of giving tax cuts only to the rich. Trump still needs to do alot for the middle class, the steel and auto jobs that Trump said he would bring back and he did bring some of those jobs back but many more are needed. Thats why I have always said the USA of the 1940s was the best of all...in those days and even up until the 1990s one was guaranteed good work right out of high school if they wanted or they could go on to college.

                    Andrew Yang is wrong to support giving every American 1k a month or w/e it is....but that is not how VP Biden feels. Biden has the draw of Northern and Southern people, I heard it right on Patriot radio the other day from a republican lady in Iowa whom felt bad for how Booker, Harris, and De Blasio mistreated Biden...she said Biden reminded her of Eisenhower. Biden is a riser opponent for the GOP because Biden is the type that said if this was high school, I would beat up Trump. And if Trump and Biden were to debate Biden would be on Trump more so then Bush or Rubio in 2016 thats for sure. And Biden is no pochahontas, Biden is a carrer political and his experience in the political arena.

                    Gabbard is also someone to consider supporting, she is not afraid to criticize our allies that have intolerant laws...and Gabbard served in the military, and to be honest is young and good looking and someone to watch out for.

                      Trump is attacking his base.

                          In Arizona it's Native Americans and Hispanics but also the more rural areas of the state in general

                            Point I was going to make is if a large (or the greater) percentage of the recipients were black, then Trump was not "attacking his own base."

                              Native Americans and Hispanics tend to vote Democrat, particularly the Natives.
