The Democratic Party's 6th presidential debate takes place tonight at 5:00pm PST/ 8:00pm EST. As usual, PlanetPOV will be hosting a live chat to accompany it and you're invited to join in. Hope to see you here!
Are the Moderate Democrats unaware that by being focused on praising and pandering to the "white working class"/"good people on both sides" crowd, they are insulting, taking for granted and alienating the very Democratic voters who are younger and African American that they need to actually win?
Here we are today with only around 3% of delegates decided (yes logicians, that does mean there are 97% of delegates yet to be awarded), and the candidates that are really winning this primary are Chicken Little and The Hulk.
It's Night One of the 2nd Democratic debate and not only will there be so much for them to talk about, there will be so much for us to discuss about them! As usual, we are hosting a live chat to accompany the debate and both begin at 5:00pm PDT.
There is one person who could gum up the works of Trump's dictatorship-in-process. And he's not even in elected office. Yet. Joe Biden has said that this election is a battle for the very soul of America. So right now would be a good time for Biden to really flex on this, step up and fire a loud warning shot across the bow of Trump's henchmen. The Rule of Law is coming back in 2021...and it could be coming for them.
There are many traps for conscientious candidates who run against a sociopathic demogogue who shows no hesitation to damage society or abuse the powers of the presidency to win at any cost. Avoiding them is critical.
With 20 Plus individuals seeking to be Commander in Chief, it is worthwhile to consider what makes one person superior to another in seeking the nomination. Scholars have assembled a number of lists. Here is an essay that gathers a number of them together.
In the current anti-Trump political environment, should Americans go for what they really want, or should they be content to defeat Trump and preserve/conserve the status quo that keeps the 99% in economic bondage?
Looking at the record-breaking early voting and the higher turnout of younger and minority voters, it seems much more likely that Biden over-performs than Trump, winning more than the necessary 270 electoral votes he seems likely to win at this point.
