"The Democrats ARE the unions. They won't do anything unions don't approve of." Agree

"If Republicans had their way, there would be no unions at all." Strongly I DISagree.

Show us ANY evidences of trying to get rid of ALL unions.

I AGREE in there should NOT be public employees unions.

I was a non-public employee union member. Was even a union Steward.

I was also in management.

I worked for Uncle Sam, so I have experience in ALL facets of unions.

What is YOUR VAST union experience?

then Obama donated billions of dollars to Iran the greatest state of terrorism on the globe!!!!


Al that was overlooked by the media and dems.


TG looked and sounded like a total fool, hypocrite and shallow political hack.
Tusi Gabbard is keeping the conversation current. Trump surrounded himself with pro-war advisers and secretary's after kicking out the guys that know the toll of war and how to be smart about our intervention.

The terrorists that attacked us on 9/11 were from Saudi Arabia and we are still fighting that war.

Tulsi Gabbard is on Fox more than CNN and was blocked by Google after the first debate shows me how the democratic party is playing favorites. Gabbard is a right leaning moderate with war experience, young and level headed.

Of all the candidates polling in single digits Gabbard was the strongest and I want to see her in the third debate.

Too bad so much of this has to rely on debating skills.
Well unless your wife or kids smell good. Then he gets all sniffy. Up close sniffy.

He's buying votes.

Vote for me and I'll send you $1000 a month.

Just another Democrat giving away stolen money.

Personality-wise, you mean? Yeah, I'd prefer Andrew Yang myself.

But This is not a middle school contest. It's policies that matter. And I am not voting for someone who says he wants to give $1,000 a month to everyone.

The US produces the lions share of healthcare advances and the world takes advantage of that by mandating low reimbursement rates for advances.
1. Nobody's going to "use whatever they want because it's free." I think most people will avoid receiving medical services if it's unnecessary. I don't know a single person that receives unnecessary medical care. It's an incredible waste of time going to the doctor for something unnecessary. You know who currently does waste people's time and money? People in the medical profession who profit off of unnecessary care. I visited an allergy doctor and he likes me to come in every 6 months as a check up? Why - I have no freaking clue medically. So I can blow into a tube and pay like $100 for it and be there for 10 minutes and learn that my lungs are functioning fine. It's a total waste. I'm saying this as someone who's run a marathon in just over 3 hours while not being on a single allergy or asthma medication. But hey, he needs customers to stay in business. Or how about the physical therapist who gets a $45 copay every time I walk in the door even though I can do the same exercises at home.

2. President Trump likes to talk about how we subsidize everyone else's share of the lack of funding they pay to NATO, yet he prefers a system in which U.S. citizens pay more for medical care per capita than the rest of the world to fund these advancements, to the point that people ration prescriptions or avoid going to the doctor sometimes for necessary care if they don't have sufficient insurance.

Sometimes you must take a step back in order to move forward.
Comparing how we funded our government over 100 years ago when only a handful of countries were industrialized and it took several days to travel to another continent is silly.

Adjustment is needed for trade. I'm not sure you get there by starting a trade war. We won't win a trade war with China right now.
