I don’t understand why the Democrats insist on alienating the progressive wing. They’re the ones still holding the torch for the policies the Democrats are supposed to be about. Something changed when Hillary ran. A black sore was exposed in the party. There are Democrats now that are totally conservative. Suddenly, I’m an extremist…. according to them.
I don’t know how many times I’ve seen #HRC supporters post or #Tweet some version of the idea that #Bernie supporters are exactly like #Trump supporters. These two couldn’t be more different.
One talks a big game, Trump. He’s an embarrassment and a failure. I thought he might be s real job creator. To be fair, there’s still time for him to get it together on an infrastructure bill. I hope they pass a real meaty bill that modernizes airports, rail, etc, creates jobs, connects rural communities with the rest of the country, and creates good high-paying jobs. If that happens, it could improve Trump’s poll numbers and get him reelected.
The other works tirelessly for everybody. He wants everyone to benefit. He doesn’t see the need for a divide.
We all want our kids to have a good education. We all want to live a healthy life and not have to fear getting sick. We all want better wages. We want mom and pop shops, with unique local products, to thrive.
(Wal Mart has destroyed that option. So, we need to figure out a work around. Local is usually better.)
We all want an honest president.
We all want our farms to come back. Because we want healthy fresh food.
We want our wildlife left alone. We want chemical companies to stop destroying our rivers, lakes, and waterways. (they should have to pay for restoration themselves. And if they can’t operate without destroying the planet, then they shouldn’t be allowed to operate. Yeah. I said it. It’s time to get hard on regulating or ending big time polluters free reign to destroy the planet )
Most of us want peace. That’s not always our choice. But in the last few decades, we’ve been pretty aggressive. That money could fix several problems in this country at once.
Must of us think corporations, casinos, all should have to pay their fare share. They shouldn’t be able to buy politicians that wrote laws that allowed them to rip off the country. Forget the defense spending Trump was comparing about. About how some countries aren’t paying their fair share. Our own corporations are doing just that very thing.
If they threaten to leave, let them go. But, they can’t do business here either. They made it because this country had a system that helped get them there. They should want to pay it forward and back. But, since they’re greedy, we’ll just have to do what we have to to take care of the majority.
(If they threaten to leave, and stay to, we should freeze their accounts until the lawsuit we bring against them, for back taxes, and all expenses they got out of because this country wanted them to succeed. We assisted them. All the tax breaks were with an understanding that they would do business here, create jobs here, and serve the community they’re based at.)
INFRASTRUCTURE. That’s something I hope Trump will take care of. I do support it. And I hope it includes new highways and rail to connect every community in the country to a local central city that offfers arts, culture, diversity.
Trump told cops to get rougher. You’re innocent until proven guilty. It was irresponsible and stupid
Bernie has openly talked about ways to reform the system, because it is systematic,… Through better training and not allowing dirty cops, trigger happy, racist, criminals to serve.
With all that, the Democrats don’t want us. In fact, they’re vehement against this whole thing. They think corporations should rule the world.
They didn’t learn anything from this last election. In fact, they’re doubling down on their mistakes. And they’re talking about throwing up Chelsea C. for the Senate. Jesus. That family can’t take hint.
I hear the Kennedy family are going to be out there as we get closer to 2020. They may have two family members running for President. Just rumors.
Bernie isn’t a realistic choice in 2020. The man had a lot of energy. But, he’s be pushing into his late 80s,right . Maybe it’s mid-80s. Nina Turner, who I love, has been declared the enemy by the corporate Dems. She’s out there quoting Howard Zinn. She’s strong. Shes got the right ideas. Shes black. Her only issue will be the sense one Bernie faced, lack of support from her own party.
Tulsi Gabbard seems like the real thing. She’s a veteryof Afghanistan. She’s attractive. She’s smart. She’s a part of the Bernie wing. Id like to know more about her
So far, other than Chelsea and that guy from New Jersey, the one who staged a winter dog rescue.. and is so obviously phony, it’s ridiculous… There are some positive choices, exciting possibilities for the next election. It just depends on whether or not Pelosi is still there. Because the candidates need support. And Pelosi is terrible.
If a Kennedy runs, I think that’ll fire up the Democrats that’ll lead to a win. The Republicans want to go back to pre-Kennedy era. They hated the 60s.
So, get involved this time around. It’s a great way to meet people, do something positive, that really is rewarding.
I’m already shooting off 2018 if the Democrats are going to dig in on their corporate designs.
