    Apparently Trump has more than doubled Obama’s war chest at this point in the game for re-election.  That’s a lot of funds to do some damage. Luckily for the Dems they have the media make up for their lack of funding. Although, you can make an argument the media helped Trump last election. They are worse than they were in 2015/2016, so 2020 is going to be very interesting. I’m just happy I am overseas and don’t have to see a lot of the bullshit.

    vacationing or working?

    Indeed. And as he alluded to earlier, with the current shitshow going on, this would be the PERFECT 3-5 years to do so.

    So Joe Biden's campaign got a website built in order to court the Latino vote. Turns out they didn't finish all the paperwork and sign on the dotted line because... Trump bought it.

    Are we in a sitcom?

    Laugh out loud at Elizabeth Warren’s Medicaire for all plan and her claim that no one in the middle class will pay a penny more in taxes.

    Medicare today is going bankrupt, so let’s multiply that by 10 for Medicare-For-All.   

     

    Makes perfect sense.

    We need to start asking people "are you really going to fall for that line again?"

    And, yes, yes they will.  I guess the economics being taught now omits the part about "no free lunch".

    Beto is dropping out of the Presidential race that he was never in to begin with. Also supposedly not running for Senate.

    All the NRA needs to do to stop any sort of gun seizure or buyback in its tracks is brand the program as "stop 'n frisk".

    I think Pete consolidates a lot of the "not-for-Biden, not-for-crazy" votes as people drop out.

    Biden is done, or should be done because of Hunter and the obvious pay-for-play scheme.  Warren should be done because of her ridiculous healthcare plan - a quarter of our economy on gubmit, and another quarter on healthcare....are you fucking kidding me?!?

    As long as Bernie and Warren can split the commie vote, then Pete has a chance.  But at some point, it's gotta be a two-horse race so the non-crazies don't split the vote and give a plurality victory to Warren or Bernie.

    I know that the Libertarian party won't make much noise next year, if any. I don't keep up with all the politics within that party as much as some people on here do. So, for those who DO follow it closely, can anyone explain to me what's going on here?

    Earlier today, I made a unilateral decision to rescind the invitation to Maj Toure as the Keynote Speaker of the 2020 Libertarian National Convention. I called him and informed him of this. I did so without a formal vote of the Convention Oversight Committee, which I chair.
