Apparently that's what Democrats want. To be like Republicans. Fine. Ya'll go on without me.

So what might you propose? To make it all better......

To start? Nominate Warren or Bernie.

Does that even have the vaguest chance of succeeding? Talking about the general. Given the EC and all.

That is the greatest trick of all. In the general getting through to the folks in the “heartland”.......us coasters by design matter not a smidgeon.

That hurts.... but it is the way it is.

I'm trying, just like a gazillion others are.
We might get lucky and he might win, or we might not get that lucky and another candidate might get the nomination.
Sorry, if we're not lucky enough to put Bernie or Warren over the top, I do not see that as justification for staying home and letting Trump get another four years.

I hope you don't interpret this as a slam but in my sixty-two years I've learned one thing: Those who really intend to burn it to the ground never utter a word about it. You just wake up to the smell of burning tires and tear gas and the sound of bullhorns and sirens one morning, and you realize "it's on like Donkey Kong."

The ones who utter those phrases the most are the least likely to take up a position at the barricades.

I'm too old and my wife and kids are too vulnerable to be able to afford "Life During Wartime". Had you asked in 1995, I probably would have jumped at the chance if it was "reelect Trump 1996".


Pretty much this. I've seen breakdown of society, civil war, and what it does to a people. Anyone wishing for that is ignorant, or satanic.

If by "rock bottom" you mean "a thousand years of darkness", then yes.


I don't know if it would take us a thousand. We'd have the rest of the world to keep technological knowledge, etc., alive.

Very plausibly we'd lose about 2/3rds to 3/4ths of our population, though. We'd cease being "the United States of America" for some time.

Assuming the resulting economic devastation doesn't drag everyone else down with us.

Best case scenario.

Oh, everyone else would face economic disaster as well. Simply not likely civilization-ending as what would be occurring here.

Depends. We grow lots of food in this country, and many people would likely be able to flee to neighboring nations.

Warren or Sanders might or might not win. Biden might or might not win.

'Bout a 50% chance all the way around. 'Bout a 50% chance that a thousand years of darkness are headed our way if we don't start taking global warming seriously. Extinction is looking imminent. The Doomsday CLock was just moved forward by scientists.
The President has just asked the world to pay no attention to the prophets of doom, speaking specifically about the children of the world begging for leaders to do something about what appears to be impending disaster.

Even the children can see it coming.

Nominating Warren or Sanders would be an indication that enough of society cares about where we're headed to begin electing leaders who might begin to mitigate some of the problems. An indication we might escape extinction.

Doesn't matter how much food there is, if it's 400 miles away and unable to get to you.
