    To hell with "reaching across the isle" when the other side of the isle is composed of sociopaths who serve only rich corporate donors. Push for things that help regular people, and if the "other side of the isle" won't bend the knee, make that the centerpiece of your campaign and end their careers and leave them in the dustbin of history.

    My unsolicited advice: we can get used to an odd name, but we already have a President combover. Just get a normal haircut and stop coloring. Don’t let your hair be the most memorable thing about you.

    No thank you. I’m tired of people saying they can bring us together. Right now, it’s not possible with republicans. We need someone who will fight for us. I can bring people together all the time because I manage communities. But I don’t feel qualified to run for President.

    he slipped up and accidentally told the truth when he said "environmental industry". the whole green movement is a scam

    • futurestoryteller
      futurestoryteller Hace 4 meses +1

      The funny thing about the idea of it being a scam is that anyone who's not an idiot immediately realizes that "scams" are designed to sleight people in some way, and this sleights no one. Solar panels on my house cause no actual harm. It puts other industries that are already proven environmental dangers out of business. The only people who benefit from scamming anyone in this scenario are dinosaur industries on their last legs trying to convince idiots that their processes, which were provably dangerous from the outset are secretly best for everyone, _and_ the environment.

    The trouble is that 'not getting along' is the Reps whole brand now. Cooperation is seen as 'corrupt' or 'weak', and anyone who does it gets lambasted by their own team.

    I think it's naive to think you can heal the divide with Mitch McConnell in office.

    Presumably by standing aside and letting the frackers punch holes around peoples houses, fill the holes with cesium and then abandon the holes so that the tax payers get to pay to plug them back up. Because it is totally unreasonable of to ask for a deposit to cover the cost of plugging the wells. Ya know, cause jobs or something.

    In a functioning democracy there can't be unity, because unity is deadly for the republic. Only enemies create unity. The ones who call for unity are in need of an external oppononent - that means war. Hence, internal frictions are essential for the well being of a truely democratic state.

      @Bolton That's bias, not rigging. People voted, the votes were counted, the person with the most votes won.
      That distinction is crucial. People need to know their votes are what matter at the end of the day. In 2020, if someone with power is biased against your preferred candidate, and you don't vote because some jackass on youtube said that means it's rigged, we all lose.
      By the way, those "leaked questions" weren't questions, they were topics. She told her someone was going to ask about the death penalty and someone in Flint was going to ask her about the situation in Flint. Who could have seen that coming?!

      Yeah, that's some adorable patronizing you did there, in your fake "corrections" but you still haven't address the very many ways an election can be rigged in another's favor aside from vote tampering. Which is straight up illegal. I suspect because you'd have to address all the ways in which that type of rigging was made transparent by the DNC from the jump. Also, the very existence of superdelegates is undemocratic, and it's otherwise superfluous when you consider calls for them to follow the popular vote regardless, or the fact that you claim they... did anyway... so... dumb argument there.
      You might as well be a republican defending gerrymandering, that's not illegal either and it serves voters in their districts by design. "That's not rigging, it's democracy!"

    • Dorian sapiens
      Dorian sapiens Hace 4 meses

      @futurestoryteller I don't think you understand how primaries and caucuses work. That's nothing to be ashamed of; most people probably don't, either.
      The correlation between primary votes and delegates (which I characterized as lining up "extremely well", not "pretty closely", so that was a mistake on your part that I'm sure was accidental and not due to dishonesty) shows that the delegates (most of whom, by the way, are not super delegates but ordinary people selected through their local caucuses) who actually decide the results are making a decision that agrees with the broader small-d democratic process of primary voting. The delegates decided the way the people voted. That's not rigging, it's democracy.

      John Fitzgerald Kennedy was rich. So was Theodore Roosevelt, and these are two of the most progressive presisents we've had, although to be fair we'd have to concede most presisents have been rich

      I've said it before and I'll say it again, I don't think Yang is going anywhere this election cycle, I think people will stick with Bernie and I think it's probably better if people do. Andrew Yang is the type of person who becomes president when people realize that Bernie's so-called "free stuff" is actually good for the country, and simply democracy in action and their taxes put to good use. That way universal basic income doesn't seem like a pipe dream. Besides which when Sanders is asked about UBI he says that he thinks it's something we need to seriously consider, and he has a political track record that makes it clear he's not kidding. I've got no reason to change my vote. Andrew Yang seems like a future president to me, just not necessarily a future this near

    • futurestoryteller
      futurestoryteller Hace 4 meses

      Look up the ESclips video I referenced and see if they have links. If they don't, find the studies as cited and look those up. I'm not your google machine.

    • rawhamburgerjoe
      rawhamburgerjoe Hace 4 meses

      i have never heard of that research, can you provide a link? and i dont mean a link to a tv show. it is very common for the media to over-extrapolate meaning from studies that were never meant to show what the media says they do.
      heres the thing, if someone is literally screaming at you, the first thing you have to do is get them to stop. i literally use this technique at least a couple of times/week in my work.
      let me give you an example.
      A pt is pissed off because i am late. they have yelled at, and insulted the receptionist, and they are out in the waiting room telling anyone who will listen what a dump the place is. i pull them back to my office for their appointment. Literally the very first thing I say to them is, "ah i see you are upset and i heard that it is because i am running late today". the pt will often then launch into a diatribe- this is the point where you NORMALIZE, "well, anyone would be upset if someone made them wait longer than expected". Honestly, you would be shocked to see how well this often works for calming someone down. See 80% of the time, what REALLY pissed the person off was when the receptionist blew them off when they complained, making them feel embarrassed or whatever. it is only when they have calmed down to the point where they are CAPABLE OF LISTENING that I explain to them that they actually showed up an hour early, so the appointment is actually right on time.
      There is a narrative in politics right now which states that the other side is beyond reason. We are at the point where we're just shouting at each other half the time. In such cases, using the technique outlined above might help. Its not something you do in every situation, only when needed.

    • futurestoryteller

      Can you read? No it isn't, research has indicated that it's a very ineffective tactic, you're basically reinforcing the thought by repeating it.

      Akmal Ibrahim he’s passed the Asset Bill which it gives DACA or undocumented students the opportunity to go to College at a decent rate . He legalized recreational marijuana and made those tax dollars work for the different school districts in Colorado. Has pushed for the red flagged bill which bans individuals from getting guns for a period of time until a judge grants permission when there is reasonable doubt of danger. Colorado has a become one of the most popular states in the US, the economy is booming here and unfortunately we have people moving here from every state.

      Socialism is the seizing and controlling the means of service or production by the community in what would otherwise be a for profit system. This guy is going to block me, but he's such an idiot he doesn't realize that medicare for all is the very definition of a socialist policy. This is what centrism is everyone. Indiffensible, wilful ignorance. His last response is a flag of surrender. Don't socialize everything, but don't demonize the word either. Vote Sanders
