in most politics it's all about your story and storytelling skills

it's an emotional sales job (usually fairy tales* for socially trained/conditioned adults)

just have a good sales pitch that appeals to the masses and the approval of corporations/tribes (media, unions, industry, welfarians, etc.)

once elected you can do almost anything as long as you grease/reward your voters (it's mainly about the short term)

you can borrow and spend into oblivion with reckless abandon, murder innocent people with flying robots, etc. doesn't matter

as long as you smile, look good, speak well and payoff or promise to payoff the people who vote

same stage, same basic framework with different characters


*Fairy Tales are stories involving fantastic forces, usually good versus evil, most originating in folklore, mythology, and legend. They feature fantasy beings like dragons, dwarfs, fairies and talking animals. They aren't just for kids. In fact, many are complex morality tales; some are graphic or morbid, and shouldn't be read to children at all. We recommend previewing stories before reading with your children.
i've noticed that those paying proper attention the general thought is politicians are full of poop and have little or no credibility

politics has a huge credibility issue

not sure where i'm going with this

please help...

 

You do not need any.  Sounds like you summed it up quite accurately and succinctly. It's not cynicism if it's true.

I know what you mean; it is healthy when members stir things up in their own parties.  Sometimes it doesn't work out so well at first for some people but generally it is best to make the "old guard" uncomfortable.

Well, within reason, I guess.  Any party could do without someone like Roy Moore as a member.

I'm tired of the olds.  Warren is 70 years old today. It's time for some younger people. Hell, I'm oldish and I'd be thrilled to have someone with my basic generational view in there (Obama almost qualifies, but he's still technically a boomer).   

Let go. let some new ideas in. It's time. 

 
 

My guts keep telling me about TULSI - not the divine herb considered sacred in India - but The D representative from Hawaii.

Yep.  I called that a month or so ago.  As it stands now and back then, she will be the nominee.

There is some more than noise about Hillary running again ... she sure sounds like she is thinking about and is still PO'ed about 2016 once again calling Trump illegitimately elected.
