Not surprised about your statement, coming from you. Base on what?

She will of course face all the "socialist" BS from the GOP, but in the end her message is the one that resonated in 2016 (unless we want to believe it really was the bigotry).
Yeah, she is the true communist. Bernie is a fake one.

What a great platform!
You should see Trumpís ad last night. It was spot on. He now can use these idiots and run more ad about these debates.

I thought they were going to drop that talk, but instead they double down on it. Itís very discouraging.
What I didnít hear mention is to tax these education institutions, I think they are a scams, yet nobody mentioned it.

She does worship Modi a bit too much. Maybe she wonít think straight when it comes to India.

I like the brutal honesty of Gabbard. However, she is extremely vocal against the military industrial complex, and therefore will never ever be the nominee.

Nominees over promise and the winner under delivers.

So much to read, I have only skimmed. But my quick 2 cents is this: it goes without saying that everyone debating hates Tr***. I don't want only hate talk. I don't even want some hate talk. I want what is positive moving forward. The ones who did not dwell on hate are the ones jumping ahead for me.

I want a woman sssoooo badly. I think the US needs a woman- are we not the only country in the first world who has never had a woman?

I am a very educated and professional white woman from an oil and gas family. I am married to a black man from a very educated family, all going to HBCU schools, and living on the "black" side of town. I asked him who would be more repressed in today's world him or me. Even he said that I would be the more discriminated against.

Sad state of affairs in which we find ourselves.
He maybe saying what you want to hear.

"So I decided I was going to start prosecuting parents for truancy." ...... Kamala Harris


https://www.washingtonexaminer.com/n...rry-about-that

Quote:
The policy Harris crafted as a San Francisco district attorney threatened parents with a misdemeanor for truancy, penalized by "a fine of up to $2,500 or up to a year in jail."

She liked the policy so much back then that when she became attorney general in 2011, she took the policy statewide. In her 2019 book The Truths We Hold: An American Journey, Harris said that "instituting a statewide policy on truancy was part of the reason Iíd run for the office in the first place."
