    I am not attacking you, but this is a straight-up myth. Hillary got almost 66 million votes in 2016. The only candidate in history to get more American votes was Barack Obama (both in 2008 and 2012). She received more votes in that election than Bill Clinton did for either of his Presidential runs, or George W. Bush.

    Hillary's flaw, and it IS a real one, was that she spread her operation too thin trying to sweep Georgia and Arizona. She should've focused on the Blue Wall state of Wisconsin, Michigan, and Pennsylvania.

    So can we stop saying she didn't inspire people? A lot of women were inspired, and crushed the day after the election. Let's not discount her completely.

    She couldn’t even fill a high school gym while Sanders was filling arenas with overflow crowds out and around the block.

    Pete got completely shafted because of the debacle in Iowa. Had he been named the winner that evening, he would've had stronger momentum heading into New Hampshire and beyond. He ran an extremely competent and disciplined campaign. Very similar to Obamas in 08. It's such an eye roll that people were complaining that we was 'ripping Obama off' in his speeches and how he was running his campaign. I would've ripped Obama off too. BECAUSE HE WON. Twice. 

    Now they're all coalescing around Biden. I just can't fathom how anyone can see him as a strong general election candidate against someone like Trump. He's about as inspiring as a doorknob and has no true following outside the Dem elites. Say what you will about Bernie, but he inspires PASSION in his followers. Clearly, Dems  learned nothing from 2016. Just unconscionable that they're rallying around, basically, a male Hillary.  

    More like a “democrat” drumpf. They’re a lot alike in that they can’t finish a complete sentence and keep forgetting people’s names and can’t remember where they are at any given moment.

    Democratic socialism is a tough sell in the US because there's almost no sense of community there. It's all about ME ME ME and at most your 'nuclear family.' So how do you turn such an individualistic society into one who cares about, well, society?

    Exactly.

    Bernie all the way.  I love him, love his policies and passion.  A true alternative to the status quo of "Republicans lite " .  Far too many politicians  today talk of being " in the middle"  which is not much different to the corporate politicians and press that truly run things. 

    I love Bernie too.

    Agreed! #BernieBeatsTrump 

  6. Anyone else a political nerd like me and watching any of drumpf’s Impeachment Trial? It’s turning into a freakin circus. Last night at least 12 GOP Senators left the chamber! At the start of the trial, the Sergeant At Arms said no talking and everyone must remain seated throughout the trial, unless during a recess, “under penalty of imprisonment”. Some more GOP and 1 Democratic Senator left. Nothing done about it. Chief Justice Roberts just sits there. Why have rules when none are followed? 🤬

    The economy is doing well under Trump because Obama set him up for success. I can't begin to imagine the state of this country if Trump had been handed the mess Bush left behind. The economy stayed on a pretty steady incline during the entire Obama presidency. Trump should bow at Obama's feet (where he belongs) because "the economy" is the only jewel in "his" crown.

    It's funny because I never hated Trump before this. His rotten, selfish attitude was perfect for reality TV....I found him quite funny actually. Too bad he didn't stay in his own lane. Politics isn't (well, wasn't) the place for that type of nonsense. 

    The Federal Reserve may be using quantitative easing to pump up the economy too.

    There are factors extrinsic to Obama explaining why the Trump economy is so juiced, but they're not particularly good news, as they're measures the government usually keeps in its back pocket for periods of recession, like enormously increased amounts of deficit spending for stimulatory purposes and interest rates kept incredibly low rather than slowly brought back up to levels befitting a stronger economy (and public harassment of/threats against the Federal Reserve chair to keep it that way, along with a stated desire by Trump for negative interest rates at this point in time).

    Treat a recovery period like a recession and the next recession will be delayed, but magnitudes worse and more prolonged than otherwise because the tool box has been emptied out rather than resupplied.

    Quantitative easing by the Federal Reserve is a fake fix that will collapse at some point. Basically fiat currency money from nothing...and chicks for free......

  9. These koalas bears struggling and dying are too much. A billion animals dead. It’s just beyond any words I have. Tears and emotions overtake everything. It’s unimaginable people just make this a political thing. It’s the environment, stupid! Climate change is now and these bozos are denying it because some idiot on TV tells them it’s “arson” 🤦‍♀️

    Lies lies, excuses

    Killing a foreign high ranking official abroad, with zero legal international mandate constitutes in fact a declaration of war. The UN is officially dead. Iraq part Deux, Libya, Syria etc etc have taught nothing to the mighty West have they. Keep machoing and butchering your way through the world with ZERO second planning whatsoever

    Iran was on the cards just like all the other Middle Eastern countries attacked unilaterally and illegally by all International standards (with the occasional help of the UK) long before 9/11 even "happened"

    Meanwhile, keep pouring money into sick Saudi Arabia, Israel, the US and the UK that is. It's just crazy

    UN has been impotent for a while.
