The 5th Democratic Debate begins tonight at 6:00pm PST/9:00pm EST and PlanetPOV is hosting a live chat during the debate. Hope to see you here!
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?
Despite All His Troubles Trump is Still Likely to Win Reelection….here’s an example of a case that is being made……. Whats at the Heart of the Trump/GOP Re-Election Script Ignorance (the voters overall just don’t know very much about almost everything that...
The 4th Democratic debate takes place tonight in Ohio and as usual, PlanetPOV will be hosting a live chat to accompany it. Everyone is invited to join in and share their thoughts throughout the debate.
Democrats need to stop running against Trump, and instead run against Trump AND the Republican Party as well as Republican voters. That will sound harsh to most Democrats, but Trump is not the problem, merely a symptom of the problem.
This wasn't the straw that broke the camel's back, it was a two ton girder of betrayal and abuse of power that squashed the camel flat. The American people, were so outraged that Trump's continued freedom to destroy our democracy unfettered and the status quo that Speaker Nancy Pelosi has tried to sustain to avoid impeachment, were no longer acceptable.
This issue isn't just about whether anyone can prosecute criminal behavior by a President while in office, it's about Trump using the Office of the President to help himself politically in what may constitute dereliction of duty and treason.
The lesson from 2016 should be, nominate someone who is inspiring to voters and brings with them too little baggage to be buried under.

Nominating and electing a 77 year old man who will be 81 years old when it's time for re-election is not long term thinking. In 2024, Republicans will have the anti-incumbent momentum and likely, a younger and more energetic candidate. As bad as things are now, they could be even worse under a Repub (Don Jr. or Ivanka?) in 2025.
