I did not watch the debate but I have one question: For the candidates who are proposing big changes, how many of them have experience implementing ideas and actually solving and dealing with problems?

Translation: Which ones are not academics, lawyers or both who have never run a state, a business or a large organization?

Academics and lawyers, unless they ran something big in addition to being a lawyer and/or academic, can be impressive when they talk. They know stuff/are subject matter experts. They learn to communicate. They're good at criticizing the do-ers of the world and making speeches. What they aren't good at is taking what they know and putting it to work in the real world or dealing with problems that come up along the way. They CHOSE careers where they wouldn't have to deal with implementation and solving problems that impact a lot of people. As politicians in the House and Senate they don't have to put their ideas to work or be responsible for what happens after legislation is voted on.

You vote for lawyers and academics for Representative and Senator and then complain when they don't DO anything. Based on their resumes, what did you expect? Don't promote them to President unless they go home and run something big, first.

Even MSNBC says D Policies are not popular and will lose the Election.

Watch the video.

They are called Rolling Blackouts and they happen in in the middle of the summer.
CA has had them for years mostly in Southern CA / LA area.
CA just cannot generate enough electricity in the heat of the summer to meet current demand.
Plug in 40 million people using electric cars and you'll have a severe shortage.
The gas you don't put in the tank will be used to generate power in the transmission line.

You can read about them here. But I first heard about them maybe 15 years or more ago.

NYC has had them during peak hot summers a few times also.

She talked about making DC worry about social well being and not just increasing GDP and economic growth.

The left for decades has been trapped explaining why tax and spend increases private business activity. Now they can move beyond tax and spend to structural reform on how capital is managed and by who.
Have you checked out Andrew Yangís proposals? One of his ideas is to redefine GDP so it includes a measure for quality of life instead of simply measuring the wealth of a society.

Dem Debates last night just a few days after Mueller testifies and not a word about Russia, Mueller and his testimony.

Isn't Impeachment Issue Important to the Democrats to be elected ?

No, it's a dead issue you say.

Seeing all the videos of what was said last night was more than enough to me.

There are enough videos to watch the longer versions to make sure the edited version is not biased.

I do have to say that one of the moderate Democrat made the most sense to me although I still do not agree with most of his stances.

President Trump won another debate!

Last night was the end of the progressive agenda. Most of the Dems don't want single payer except kooky Bernie and Liz, and a couple of fringe candidates, and they have no idea how to pay for it, it's embarrassing to think those people are elected officials.
