    I know all kinds of folks who have thrown common sense to the wind and then just bag out of conversation because they can't back their positions.

    A real skeptic can make his own argument and also that of the opposition. That's the only real way to know how secure their own position is.

    People are too afraid or too lazy. Or maybe both.

    I've been watching this thing develop between Gabbard and Clinton. Here's my assessment.

    Gabbard is a classic bitch, it seems Clinton is being bitchy.

    But I suspect Clinton is stating what 'inside sources' have stated and I'm relatively certain it is true. But Gabbard is not at fault in this and it shouldn't be perceived as such. But Gabbard has taken on the mantle as if she was...and how could she do anything but that.

    Gabbard represents a position that is wholly beneficial to any would be despots, that is the conundrum and actual reality of world politics. Take it or leave it. The extant global reality is one of a strategic game and balancing act that transcends any analogous game of strategy. Why can't we just see the forking world as it is. In simple terms, we can't frame a would be future that is predicated on what we as individuals find most desirable. Humanity hasn't risen to that level and as long as we have people that are functioning on the lower levels of 'humanness' our perception of Utopia will be nothing more than a distant dreamscape.

    Not likely. Perhaps you don't know this, but most folks in America are Dems or lean Dem. They just don't get out and vote like the Republicans. But when they get active, as they are now, they vote. You may be surprised at the numbers who come out next year but you shouldn't. Just like with Obama, the raw numbers are there if they vote. Enough numbers to overcome the gerrymandering and negative politics.

    Republicans are energized too, but they are not the majority and haven't been since the Reagan years. Plus, Trump is losing the independent and swing vote. That's why he has to cry foul and fake, because he can't win for real.

    He lost the popular vote by a good margin. He barely squeaked through the electoral college. I don't even think the foreign interference will be enough to help him. But I doubt Putin cares that much. He's already received a windfall.

    Bernie is going to make it Aianawa, though he isn't my type anymore than Gabbard would be. I like Elizabeth Warren, intelligent, educated, tough, and civil...The Perfect Storm...

    Apparently she would be our first Native American president as well.

    Now so far as Tulsi Gabbard goes (who is not a fake minority like Warren). Strategy wise, Hillary may have just given the Gabbard campaign an early Christmas present in October. How best to catapult a struggling campaign onto front page news? With zero evidence, triple down on the already debunked, and paranoid McCarthy era like Russia hysteria by publicly accusing a sitting congresswoman, and decorated war veteran, of being a Russian asset.

    Brilliant!

    The Clinton corruption, DNC corruption, and Military Industrial Complex may now be on public trial if Tulsi plays her cards right with this new and unexpected spotlight on her.
