Bit of an extreme comparison don’t you think?

Yeah, only 17 died at Parkland.  This bill will probably kill thousands maybe millions.

It will be a lot of fun to watch the meltdowns all over again, X2.

Wow. And you didn’t think to share that stuff here where some dudes said stuff about a guy. That stuff sounds riveting.

So Kamala last night said she is for Medicare for all, and wouldn't mind getting rid of all insurance companies... Some old prosecutor videos came out of her also, basically bragging about trying to charge poor people whose kids were truant. I can't imagine the left would be as fine with it if it were a white male.

Elizabeth Warren (worth millions) took to twitter to complain that Dan Snyder bought a yacht, apparently his earned money should be taken from him and given to students to pay off their loans, not sure where she was going with this. 

It is one thing to dislike Trump and believe in more "welfare", but the left is leaning awfully left these days. Is there anyone running as a "moderate"?

I don't think so. They're going after millenials and the college/Berkeley crowd, so there's no room for it anymore. They know that the boomers are dying off and the Gen X'rs are part of what they call the "exhausted majority". So they're catering to the fresher faces in the hopes that they can grow a voter block to last for some time.

You're right, it is extreme...but in the opposite way. One killed 17(I think?) and another kills around 700,000 per year.

 

We are killing over 15% of our babies per year through abortion.

You weirdo conservatives and your obsession with abortion is creepy. I’ll bow out of this one.

I am not that passionate about this topic (I personally tend to lean that it is fucked up), but I find the opposite of what you stated.  I think the obsession this country has with abortions in general is fucking creepy and weird.  Most other countries are not obsessed with abortion and think its completely odd that people here celebrate it.

Ok, hard reset. 

As this is the 2020 thread, let's see officially who is running. 

For the Ds: 

  • Elizabeth Warren 
  • Kamala Harris 
  • Kirsten Gillibrand 
  • Julian Castro 
  • Pete Buttigieg 
  • John Delaney 
  • Andrew Yang
  • Tulsi Gabbard (announced she is looking into it, but that is it so far) 

Said he is looking into it: Independent Howard Schultz.

Others that are most likely going to run for the Ds: 

  • Cory Booker 
  • Joe Biden 
  • Bernie Sanders

All others are possible runs and includes like 10 others.

Saw on Twitter that Kamala Harris is being dragged for having an affair with a married man and getting plum positions (jobs) because of it. In today's climate people don't really care if you traipsed around with a cheater. For me it is her California ideology that will block me from voting for her. 

From looking at the list of names between dems and reps I am inclined not to vote for anybody. Much like I was in '16, but I voted for Johnson instead. I don't see a Johnson to vote for this time around so I might leave that box alone.

And I don't think I'll be voting for Nikki Haley if she does run:

In my quest of getting acclimated to normal life, the challenge is real. When you get in an elevator and you wonder why it is taking so long to get to your floor, it helps if you hit a button. #PayAttentionToDetails

Nobody gives a fuck about this, but both sides pretend they do.

On the R side, I hope, I really hope Hogan or Kasich challenge Trump. 

I say Hogan has a better chance than Kasich as Hogan's record is more down the middle than Kasich's. Hogan also can show he can work with Rs and Ds in a very blue state. Hogan knows how to work with a D legislature.

But, I know the odds are slim for that to actually happen.

Yeah, obsession with killing a baby...and I am not a conservative, I am a libertarian.
