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."

Immigration and refugees we are having are because of our failed or lack of foreign policy. She is the only one I see keeping the focus on the issues and trying to not alienate herself from talking to the adversaries if she gets elected. Everyone else running their mouth just makes it harder to negotiate with them later.

This is an underrated fact.

No worries. Gillibrand likely won't make the third debate. So I doubt her comments about white privilege and Biden not supporting women working outside the home will go much further than they have. She's running a one-dimensional campaign.

Itís going to take the same kind of tap for the best shot at beating Trump.

I trend moderate.
There weren't that many moderates in the '16 Republican field of 17 candidates.

-I count Jeb, Kasich, Christie, Lindsay Graham, Pataki (had no shot), Gilmore (had no shot). Rubio was only moderate regarding the income tax plan.

I think younger voters in general enthusiastically do not want Trump to be President.

I will not back down from my assertion that the puppet masters will not allow a woman to be POTUS. They're the most misogynistic people on the planet. But they may want her as a VP if it helps their chosen POTUS balance out the ticket and be more sellable. Booker is another Obama, a sham candidate who they created and fabricated and helped every step of the way. A gay POTUS and woman VP, that would sell. Booker and Harris wouldn't sell that well since both are black. And that leaves Warren out, they'll never let her get the nomination.
But looking into Gabbard's past I see the same tell tale signs of "help" that we've seen with Obama, Booker, and others. Meteoric rises to fame and achievement everything seems arranged to help them succeed. So there's no doubt they're owned and controlled. Watch the next generation of puppets being groomed and readied for stardom. One is David Hogg the little brownshirt Nazi from Florida. He's gotten into that diploma mill Harvard as have some other young activists.
Harvard and Yale, nothing more than clown colleges now.
The only people propping up Gabbard are Republicans, Breitbart, Daily Caller etc. who want it to look like Democrats like Gabbard.

The DNC doesn't like Gabbard. She resigned from her post in '16 to call out their BS and back Bernie. She is suspect given her meeting with Assad. There's a reason she hasn't polled that well.
