Despite Pete's sexual preference?  Just curious.  His 'centrist' position has strong potential appeal for swing voters.

That said, I believe the USA should focus on single payer health care and should increase consumption taxes to finance it.  Starting with excise taxes on dirty fuel which at the federal level have been steadily declining in real terms over the last almost 3 decades.

 
What is it with you and consumption taxes ?  These kinds of taxes hit the poorest and those on fixed incomes the hardest, period.

One of the biggest keys to economic prosperity is low energy costs.  Our, the USA's, energy gets cleaner and cleaner by the day.  New technology keeps coming online regularly.  We are just a couple of breakthroughs away to major energy source changes.  Don't bankrupt the country and prevent the development of these potential breakthroughs from happening due to a lack of financial resources that result from counterproductive artificially high energy costs.

Moderates and independents are imo usually the most sophisticated voters and have absolutely no consideration for or opinion of sexuality, color of skin and so forth.  That is usually the fodder of staunch liberals and conservatives who are obsessed with identity politics.  If you only watched the media and did not actually spend any time amongst real Americans this is a fact that would surprise most outsiders. 

 

As for the second bolded, that is a losing hand in the general right there.

Correct me if I am wrong, but I think most women know the difference between a goofy pantomime of a grab-ass and an actual, unsolicited physical grab-ass.

 

Indeed. Thnx for clarification.

You may have to clarify that, I am pretty sure grabbing one's ass unless it is playfully grabbing your partner's is not even remotely ok.

It sure looks like they are trying to get her out of there asap.  She is the most important and dangerous candidate to the party and that is really saying something with the "er interesting" candidates they have fielded this go round.  Go Tulsi!

Really? Everything that's wrong with the Democratic Party? That's a bit of a stretch.
 



Ryan Grim is the author of We’ve Got People: From Jesse Jackson to Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, the End of Big Money and the Rise of a Movement

Dear reader.  Here is an excellent example of the infighting that you can expect from the Democratic party going forward.  Including Trump-style rhetorical excesses.  


P.S. Not a fan of envy-driven politics.   Too many societies have been destroyed by it, the most recent high-profile example being Venezuela.   Envy-driven politics is also infecting the movement to combat global climate disruption in the form of polluter populism.
