    Oh stop. This is the US. You act like if someone is for any of those things, we’ll end up communists. May as well shoot for single payer and settle for fixing Obamacare. Get investment in higher education. Voting rights for convicts after they’ve served time isn’t even close to radical. Packing the Supreme Court? After what McConnell and republicans have done?

    There’s a lot to see here. A lot that makes sense once you get past your unrealistic feat.

    He actually agrees with a lot of what Democrats say. He’s just afraid to say so.
     
  3. Wrong

    Wrong :))

    McConnell didn’t “pack” the court, he picked judges. The left is a tyrannical bunch of fools.

    Quit trying to Jedi mind trick me.

    Think of me as an Obama Democrat. Someone who would have been considered your average Democrat just a few years ago before all the squealing butthurt over Trump started and the Party ran to the hard left. I'm simply keeping a realistic eye on the prize because I want Trump voted out too.

    Lol. No. He’s done it within his constitutional power by gerrymandering, winning elections etc. But that’s not to say that it’s been “on the up and up”.

    Nor is it to say that packing the court would be unconstitutional. There is nothing limiting the number of justices the nation can put on the SCOTUS.

    I consider myself an Obama Democrat. But if you start negotiating where you want to end up, you’ll never get close to where you want to be.

    How did he gerrymander a senate seat?

    Well now that you’re here, yes.

    Look at this dribble.

    “I don’t care I want my way and I want it now.”

    Is not the kind of rule this country was set up to have. Go live in a dictatorship. Get out.

    The Democratic Presidential Candidate who runs hardest to the left might win the primaries but they won't win the Presidency. The Country as a whole is more moderate and general election voters won't stand for a lot of the stuff they're pushing.

    If I don’t agree with you, you tell me to get out?

    Lol. You deserve this president.

    The ones running farthest to the left won’t win the nomination but the moderates will give nods to some far left ideas as having some merit.

    The only dribble I see is what you failed to swallow.

    Who's the moderate who could win the primaries if it's not Joe?

    I think Harris can. But why not Joe?

    Joe is looking pretty tired and maybe even a little confused at times. And we're still over a year out from the election. If he were in good shape I'd be all in.

    How could Harris ever be considered a moderate?

    I’d say her personal politics probably lie a little right of Obama’s. I think you’re viewing Obama the president rather than Obama the candidate. That’s not really a fair assessment. Obama the president was far more progressive as a candidate.

    The RS Politics 2020 Democratic Primary Policy Guide

    Rolling Stone wrote this article on where the Democratic candidates stand on each major issue. Harris is by no means a moderate.
