2020 Democratic Primary Race

Unfortunately social security isn’t being used today as it was originally intended.  They will never get rid of it now because so many people depend on it when they shouldn’t. Now we’re just paying to appease and keep the status quo. 
 

In fact when I was younger I repeatedly applied to work for several railroads because I didn’t want to pay into SS. 

 

Medicaid isn’t as terrible but just like anything the government runs has a lot of abuse and fraud. Just can’t trust them to do anything right with your money. 
 


 


 

 

Because there is no waste or nepitism in the private sector :yao:

the builder that my company sub contracts for wastes probably millions of dollars in construction meterial a year and based on what my friends and family tell me of working in a more corporate, office type scenario, they're not exactly efficient either. Also, people are tried and convicted for embezzling from companies literally every single day. Lol

I am stunned at how badly the Dem leadership has "read the room" on this one. The top two trending hashtags on twitter are "People vs Pelosi" and "People vs Schumer." If Trump pushes through temporary UBI and the Dems try to stop it, he will win the 2020 election "bigly."

Never said there wasn’t and sure there is plenty of all that. But in the private sector I can inform myself and choose who with and what to put my money into. I find that to be the biggest selling point as to which is preferred. 
 

As far as embezzlement and fraud goes, I’m glad to see that they’re convicted however those crimes are just as, if not more rampant in government and I’d wager far less of those individuals are ever found out or tried.

Only thing I’m worried about now is that the means testing is too restrictive. We shall see how it plays out in Congress though

Tulsi just suspended her campaign... AND ENDORSED JOE BIDEN. Because Bernie is an asshole.

It's over. I'm still really disappointed that she would endorse Biden. Bernie should have had her back since November but he's obviously too weak for this fight. It should have been Tulsi the whole time because she wouldn't have let Biden off the hook. Still very very disappointed. Fuck this, man.

Another thing with UBI, who stands to really benefit? Why do you think people like Bezos and Musk and Branson etc etc. Silicon Valley in general is such a huge proponent? 
 

Because they want you to willingly go along with taking away their jobs and further monopolizing themselves. They want their workforce nearly entirely automated. When those menial jobs are already figured out, some of which have already been, who’s going to pay those people? Not them. The government and the people whose jobs can’t quite be automated, yet. They will certainly try to get the technology caught up with all of us though.

There's no stopping automation without outlawing it lol. So much for small government.

That's why we need a functioning government where peoplr actually vote in ligitimate elections to stop them from stealing all the benefits of that technology that they didn't even create. They just funded it. Money is not real dawg. It's imaginary. Human beings, resources, the planet on the other hand are real.

It’s not an issue government can or ever will solve. Government can’t fix human nature. All that government controlled shit is going to come eventually, I just hope it’s not during my lifetime. After that, I don’t have it in me to care.

Bernie ignored her campaign practically the entire time and she was arguably his most ardent support no matter what or who threw trash at him. I am not saying endorse her or go campaign for her, obviously he has his own ship to run, but he is quite simply an ungrateful prick who seems more than a little entitled. He has some good ideas, but he isn't worthy of the support he has.

Tulsi's brother said on facebook she has tried to drop out numerous times and endorse Bernie and he refused her endorsement.

they should be coughed on and if they get corona, they don't get medical treatment. Sounds reasonable to me.

It really soured me on Bernie. You can't do anything in politics if you refuse to compromise at all, all you're left with is feel-good sounding principles that your base likes but it never gets passed.

The President of the United States now thinks he can give people medical advice. Please do NOT take Hydroxychloroquine and Azithromycin together. First off, Zithromax is an antibiotic and there is no evidence it would affect COVID19. Nor should it, COVID19 is a virus. Secondly, Zithromax increases the effect of Hydroxychloroquine, (which I guess is why he suggests taking them together), the issue is taking both of them together can cause arrythmia of the heart. It is rare, but its more likely in older patients, exactly the kind of people who would be most likely to follow his advice.

A doctor can determine if the risks outweigh the effects, the issue with Trump tweeting it is people taking their kids z-packs, a common RX for fighting bacterial infections, when they're already on other drugs and they really shouldn't be doing so. It's a fairly common prescription and odds are quite a few people have some laying around the house.

Rand Paul was swimming in the Senate swimming pool, (didnt actually know they had one), the same morning he received word he had tested positive for coronavirus. Thus, given the 3-5 day testing wait time, he was tested sometime on Thursday or Friday at the latest, and kept interacting with Senators, including Mitt Romney, whom he sat next to and so has exposed to it. Romney's wife has MS and coronavirus would be extremely bad for her. So now Romney has isolated while awaiting test results.

Rand Paul is a fucking idiot. 

Also this is a week after Ron Paul said we should ask ourselves whether the coronavirus is a hoax. Just lol.

Trump was told Romney was in isolation and responded "Gee that's too bad," with a little smirk on his face. What a fucking asshole.

And then there's a city councilman in Oklahoma telling people the virus first goes inside people's nostrils because that's the coldest part of the body, (?) before going to the lungs. He then goes on to claim the virus can't survive 136 degrees, (??), and the way you can get your nose to 136 degrees is by holding a blow dryer in front of your face and inhaling. And that if you do this, you will kill the entire virus before it can do anything.

This man is an elected official.

The socialist lunatic Bernie is out.

me getting ready for the Trump-Biden debates

The debates will absolutely be appointment television. Biden might just off himself after he gets absolutely abused and humiliated by Trump.

I will never vote for Joe Biden and i'm going to make that as clear as possible online and in real life. I hope it's possible to go to the convention but i really want to try and make it out there. I wanna focus on trying to organize but i have no idea where to start. Trying to get people to help my organize a rent/mortgage/credit strike. It's a college town with tons of young people. It's a pretty small town too. The real estate is mostly owned by this company called Zukin too. Fuck this. Time to make a stand. This election is a farce.

Biden is going to get annihilated by Trump in the debates. A very large part of me will greatly enjoy that. The Dems are fucking idiots. They would rather have Trump than Sanders, they made their bed, they can lie in it.

Biden has a credible rape allegation from Tara Reade as well. I'm not voting for the better of two rapists.
