    2020 Democratic Primary

    I hope you are right on this. As I see it, Sanders energizes people who don't vote to vote. Biden is boring and doesn't really inspire anything. I see Biden vs Trump as 2016 all over again. But it looks like the DNC has made its choice. It damn well better be right. We don't really have a...

    Dems Need To Learn From the UK Election to UNITE under one message: GET HIM OUT!

    There is a growing Liberal wing among young democratic congresspersons currently led by Alexandria Ocasio Cortez who is the up and coming heir apparent to Bernie. Young millennials are much more liberal, diverse, and non-religious than their conservative parents, just like in the UK. Also like...

    Brexit.

    I'm inclined to think that barring some global catastrophe, UK will never rejoin the EU in most of our lifetimes. What will almost certainly happen at some point is that UK (or what's left of it at the time) will rejoin the customs unions and free trade block, aka the Norway/Switzerland...

    Trump found not guilty

    "Hard Brexit" is likely going to trigger a global recession. Right now it's scheduled for January 2021. Any chance BoJo will move it up to help out the Democrats?

    Dems Need To Learn From the UK Election to UNITE under one message: GET HIM OUT!

    This article from Politico says what I've been saying: GET HIM OUT is the winning strategy. Policies just muddy the water. Getting Trump out is the only issue that matters. https://www.politico.com/news/magazine/2020/02/06/rachel-bitecofer-profile-election-forecasting-new-theory-108944

    Dems Need To Learn From the UK Election to UNITE under one message: GET HIM OUT!

    Name one that is more important. I guarantee that anything you name will have "get him out" as a prerequisite. There is no saving democracy, or justice, or truth without "get him out". Trump must leave! Our country depends on it!

    Arizona, Colorado, Georgia, and Maine are all definitely flippable. Alabama will probably flip back to GOP. If Dems can flip the Senate, then it will deny Trump the ability to pick more lackys to the Cabinet or the Courts if he happens to win again.

    IMHO: Candidate who would make the best President: Bernie Sanders Candidate who would least likely make a good President: Michael Bloomburg Candidate who would have the best chance at beating Trump: Pete Buttigieg Candidate who would have the least best chance at beating Trump: Joe Biden...

    Cadet Bonespurs starts a war with Iran

    Trump is responsible for the airstrike that took out the leader of Defense of Iran, escalating a conflict to all out war. https://apnews.com/5597ff0f046a67805cc233d5933a53ed If this escalated to WW III, it will be the entire world, except maybe Israel, against us.

    Here in Arizona, Buttigieg is leading polls and leading in head to head vs Trump. But because we are not Wisconsin, Ohio or Florida our vote doesn't matter.

    WTF This scares the hell out of me

    The stupidity in my eyes is the view that opposing the neo-fascist government in Israel and their treatment of Palestineans is considered "anti-semitic". In my eyes, the biggest anti-semitics are the mostly American Christo-fascists who are egging on Israel to make war with its neighbors in...

    Brexit.

    Based on the outcome of the election yesterday: 1. England wants out of the EU 2. Scotland wants out of the UK and to stay in the EU. 3. Northern Ireland wants to unite with the rest of Ireland. 4. People prefer BoJo over Jeremy Corbyn. This show is just getting started. The next 10 years are...

    Anyone else getting seriously worried Trump will win in 2020?

    I'm convinced Trump will lose the popular vote by a landslide. 5 to 6 million at least, but still could win the Electoral College. There is hope. Dems could take the Senate. Dems will likely flip Maine and Arizona, but the GOP is likely to flip Alabama. Dems just need a couple more, and there...

    Brexit.

    Why cancel? Have a "debate" open to all the party leaders, and if Johnson doesn't want to come, that would actually be a good thing. Get Corbyn and Swinton, and Blackford and someone from Northern Ireland on a "debate" discussing Brexit, second referendum plans, the problems with the Johnson...

    Brexit.

    Looking at the set used in the debate and the way the moderator was dressed, did anyone get "The Weakest Link" vibes?

    Brexit.

    I agree. The ultimate outcome is going to be the UK (or what's left of the UK) back/staying in the EU. Even if the "old" people get their Brexit, the young people will rejoin -- probably adapting the euro to do it. And if there is finally a second referendum that favors remain, there will be...
