Man, I guess Bonespurs is going to coast to an easy win! I mean, look at his rallies!
Don't label me, bro.
A landslide victory for sure!
You -"It's sad how some people feel a need to brag about Trump's crowd size".
You're the guy who calls people 'Nazis', right?
I didn't call anyone here a Nazi. I've merely pointed out Trump being a Führer, which he clearly is.
Elizabeth Warren - and I hope Trump shows everyone what he is by calling her Pocahontas all campaign.
So you don't know that 'The Fuhrer' was the head of the Nazi Party and was referred by his followers as such. At his instigation a World War was begun in which at least 25 million people died, as well as six million Jews. The followers of 'The Fuhrer', or Donald Trump if you will, were Nazis and therefore, by implication, his supporters are Nazis as well..
Just out of curiosity, where did you receive your education?
I consider America's political system almost hopelessly broken and corrupted -- and American politics to be hostage to certain political interest groups whose reach extends to both parties. The Republican party (minus its isolationist wing) has basically be run over wholesale; the Democratic party's main power centers are under the control of these special interest groups regardless of greater discord among the rank and file of the party. In that sense, I guess you are right that I hold the Democrats to "impossible standards", but not in the sense you imply.
In the particular context of what I had mentioned, I was basically voicing my disappointment that even against a clearly challenged incumbent such as Trump, the voices that have emerged on the other side are hardly anything that would be considered charismatic, inspiring, or in any sense visionary. This is all the more disappointing since it is one thing beating Trump (that shouldn't be too difficult a challenge given his negative ratings), but an entirely different thing to lead the US with a clear mandate and messages that allows a lot of the mess left by Trump to be cleaned up after him.
Oh that likely won't be a problem.
What do you feel are her greatest qualifications to be President?
She actually wouldn't be my first choice but I think she would stand the best chance of beating Trump - especially if she can goad him into acting out his worst instincts - which likely won't be a prob as you have noted.
Elizabeth Warren's policy platform:
That was interesting, Thanks, but do you think those proposals will have the support of the electorate?
When you receive praise from Iranian Monitor when referring to Americans and their President as "Nazis", Durandal, then you know you've arrived. High praise indeed.
Some have come out of the closet, but it seems most are too ashamed to do so. The stigma......
You are the one playing politics by inventing a 'moral standard' you only apply to people you dislike. Trump supporters and right wingers making death threats or behaving violently apparently doesn't concern you. No one is surprised.
Polls? I love polls. Let’s talk about polls. Are polls nearly 99.99% certain Trump will lose reelection yet?
How’s Hillary’s presidency doing, by the way?
‘Cos they may get punched in the teeth by all-loving, all-tolerant Liberal pollsters.
Point out death threats made by Republicans and I'll condemn them but, as mentioned, you have nothing.
I did. You pretended they didn't happen. As expected.
Then you should keep it handy because there'll naturally be a lot of cynics.
Still waiting for your condemnation of those death threats and your acceptance that 'the right' has a 'morality' problem too.
Funny coming from you, calling Germans in 2019 nazis as well.
Aside from the obvious, e.g. Timothy McVeigh, here's just one sampling--and Tucker Carlson is a dipshit:
Intelligent, moderate, articulate, mature. All the elements currently missing from the current White House.
Now this is just sad - he's bragging about a 51% approval rating. He's actually Tweeted this!
