It's not happening.

Or another idea: Go out and find a candidate that can win in flyover country. Obama did it twice, B. Clinton did it twice.

I am a moderate as my "byline" says. I voted for Obama in 2008, Jill Stein (Green Party) in 2012, and Gary Johnson (Libertarian) in 2016; and I think Trump might possibly be the worst POTUS in history.

That being said, if Trump's runs again in 2020, and his opponent says that s/he is in favor of supporting those who are UNWILLING to work, I will be voting for Trump. I am for the person who promotes the interests of the working- and middle-class majority of U.S. citizens, which is comprised of people of ALL races, sexuality, etc. I am against anything that supports the "takers" of society, which includes politicians, the very wealthy, and the lazy poor (as opposed to those who are poor through no fault of their own).

I am against anyone who wants to penalize (through increased taxes) those who have worked for what they have to support those who are unwilling to work. (See the last "sub bullet" under the second bullet under Overview in the link below.)

P.S. Btw, I just watched Moore's Fahrenheit 11/9, and although I liked his previous films, this one was horrible, imo. In fact, I thought it was so bad, I no longer have nearly as good of an opinion of him as I once had.

Well, according to Moore in Fahrenheit 11/9, moderate Democrats are just as bad as Republicans (unless I misunderstood him, which I don't think I did).

This thread was discussing that very issue, yet was locked for some reason;

Why has the Democratic Party gone mad?

It has prime examples of how the Democrats have gone hard left, thus very few moderates are left in the party.

Sorry, but with a voting record like yours, you can hardly be considered a moderate (nor very wise with whom you choose to vote for, two of those three are kooks).

Michael Moore is a nutjob, and a fraud. Not only does he play the working class hero and SJW anti-Wall Street crusader, but he lives like a king on his multi-million dollar compound, based on his ideological rhetoric the fools pay for.
I was watching a talk show hosted by Bob Costas, and Moore was being interviewed. He blurted out that president Bush had Osama Bin Laden captured, and was just waiting to spring it on the public as an October surprise before the election.
Costas said, "you are joking , right" but Moore went on to say he was being kept in a secret facility and the word was getting out.
Costas who is more of a sports guy (not a political talking head) had this look on his face like you are bat crap crazy.

So your diminishing opinion of him is well founded.

Not happening.
Actually that's not true. This would be an an agreement by specific states to award all their electoral votes to the candidate with the largest national popular vote. Other states can do as they wish.
