Of the dem candidates, which one do you prefer the most?


If we are going to have a dem POTUS, I prefer a really crazy one for entertainment purposes. So my choice would be Warren. She is a flat out loon and would provide AOC level entertainment with wacky, absurd statements.


Joe is a little boring. He would be politics as usual, but would provide a lot of good gaffes and enough hair sniffing to be interesting, but not as much as Warren.


Sanders is a true loon as well, but he is old hat and we have heard all his crazy statement already. I would really prefer new entertainment.


Anyone else?

Warren would be the easiest win (for Trump) in so many ways...

- Open borders w/ free healthcare to illegals
- No nukes unless used first upon us
- Killing private health insurance and all those jobs
- Killing most of the energy industry and all those jobs
- Abusing minority benefits to get her ahead in life
- Reversing tax cuts and adding additional tax increases
- Pushing the Green New Deal

- I’m sure I’m missing more, but the point is we are talking radical change and if the economy is still good during election that will be a tough sell. Biden on the other hand would bring us more toward Obama days, which isn’t fundamentally changing any industries or anything. Biden would be able to get a lot of moderate votes and Midwestern votes.

She is really crazy, so she is my first choice. She checks most of the far left boxes, which makes her very popular in that group.


I really think that Liz would deliver AOC and Omar quality lunacy on a frequent enough basis to make her a really good dem president and her public speeches would be priceless.


It would be great if she built a tepee on the White House lawn and would have dances for a good economy, global warming, ect........ Imagine the fun.

LOL omg I forgot about her (Williamson) yeah I mean honestly she would be the worst candidate for Dems, she would have inauguration day start by praying to the mystical spirits and have everyone repeat I'm sorry I was born white and I'm thankful for everyone born black and f*** any other minority race but then again she has no chance... we are realistically looking at Biden, Warren, Sanders

One problem. I think you'd get tired of hearing her voice go on and on. She's like the crazy local cat lady who goes to every city council meeting to berate everyone, holding the talking stick 24/7.

In any case, hang onto the Senate in all cases. The crazy runs so deep that there'll be outrageous payback if POTUS is a Democrat.

Trump 2020: Grab one or be one.

Not a terrible answer. Mostly you'd just get status quo.

Having said that, one of my favorite things is checking out all the over-the-top outrage over Trump when you consider how little he has changed practically anyone's daily life. Both the media and internet forum rage is created in a kind of echo chamber of overreaction.

As something of a single issue voter, on the country-killing potential of mass immigration, it's hard to get too worked up about everything else. The thing is, even truly existential threats like that take some time to occur, you're looking at a 50 year rolling disaster. It's not dissimilar to human-caused environmental issues in terms of time frame.

Probably Joe.

Thought I'd never say this, but I'd prefer a boring one over a crazy one. He's predictable at least.
