  1. Nothing like supporting a candidate who wants to create a federal gun registration system, wants the government to run healthcare, wants to pass reparations, and has no regard for religious liberty.
  2. Well, the DNC is very political when it comes to choosing the polls they consider valid. Gabbard should have qualified for the last debate occurring to reliable pollsters' data. However, she wasn't because of the DNC's picking and choosing which polls they would accept. However, I agree that this is a desperation move. She's looking for headlines and will probably show up anyways.
  3. Kucinich is probably the best Democrat on the list. His domestic policy mostly sucks, but he is good on foreign policy and on his mistrust of the deep state
  4. I mean, he claims to be libertarian but loves Obama and FDR. So, who knows if he even knows where he stands.
  5. That was actually an idea debated during the constitutional convention. I find it intriguing as it would provide voices from different regions of the country (which the federalist system was designed to do in the first place). This would also make it more difficult for the executive to assume power over the other brances (especially Congress).
  6. Reinstitute the checks and balances laid out in the Constitution by reigning in the power of the executive and the courts
  7. N/A Don't know enough about the parties besides the Greens and Libertarians. The Greens suck on almost all of their policies, and the Libertarians are a dumpster fire with no real electoral prospects.
  8. You make an excellent point which exposes interventionist Republicans. If the US is going to "free" people around the world and take care of the world's citizens, then they have weak arguments against intervention on the Homefront.
  9. 😂 The best part is the one liner from Harris
  10. Means hardly anything. McConnell is a tactician and knows that there is no chance of conviction in the Senate. It would come up and Trump would be acquitted (with maybe the majority of the chamber against removal). It would also put red and swing state democrats in a difficult position.
  11. He has held rallies throughout his term as President (especially during the midterms). They are also attempting to build a massive ground game operation (which greatly benefitted the Dems in 2018) in order to compete as best as possible in the swing states.
  12. You make a very good point on the comparisons that many on the left like to make to Trump. By associating him with many of their comparisons, they are actually saying that Trump is some super genius who has developed a master plan to consolidate power under him and is actively undermining American political institutions without anyone catching on. That is a LOT more than I would give him credit for.
  13. What about Harry Reid? Bernie and Schumer don't surprise me too much (due to them only really becoming relevant recently). But, I'm kind of surprised that McConnell and Rand (especially him) don't have more notable actions. Since Rand is one of the most rebellious members of the Senate, I'd thought there would have been more actions considered major.
  14. Rand Paul Mitch McConnell Chuck Schumer Bernie Sanders
