The Republicans really want to run against Bernie. They make no bones about that one. If Bernie gets the nod then the Democrats will have to climb a mountain that will probably be impossible to climb. Given the economy that's just the tip of the problem.

This is just what I believe and there are a lot of others who feel exactly the same way. just saying....


And I really want Bernie to run against Trump. Because he'll bring out the independents and non voters. He'll bring out young voters in droves. He'll bring out people who want change. Even you will vote for him. Because you hate Trump. Black people might have liked Biden but they'll vote for Bernie because they hate Trump.

Everybody and his brother will be storming the polls to vote against Trump. And Bernie is the exact opposite of Trump.

If Bernie manages to clinch the nomination he's our best bet to see the landslide victory we need to shut the Trumpists down.

The best chance we have to flip the senate. And the best chance to enact maybe just a tiny bit of change. Like Obama promised but never delivered. Were you worried about Obama's chances of winning because he was a self-described black man? I'm still hoping for change.

Given the results in the last couple of outings it looks as if the middle tend to have almost twice as many voters. If, for instance, Amy and mayor pete cut a deal (one pres and one vice pres) they would swamp Bernie. Remember too, the Republicans are currently being encouraged to vote in Democratic parties for Bernie. They are freely admitting that Bernie is their candidate choice for the Democrats. By the time they are through with him he will be destroyed if their history is any indication of what they can do when they put their minds to it. Look what they did to John Kerry! (a genuine war hero with the medals to prove it and they convinced large groups that he was a fake and he lost the election). Bernie, for instance, in all the years he was in the congress passed a whole 2 bills, he also carries a lot of other baggage and the title of socialist will not help).

I also think that political druthers is sometimes decided by talking to others who believe the same. This is called wishful thinking. Ya gotta see the whole thing, talk to the other sides and even the stuff you hate to understand it all. I try, and fail miserably. I will vote for Bernie if he runs, but I hope he doesn't because I don't think he can win.

Every time there is an election the politicians always claim that the current election is the most important in the entire history of the nation. I feel this is particularly true of this one. I am not even sure that if Trump loses that he will leave the White House easily and might even start a civil war. I sincely hope that I am wrong!!!

I kinda doubt that civil war meme: He's pissed of the top military brass. They would consider all his orders illegal and the threat of hanging for treason would reach down the ranks quickly.

If I remember correctly the top civil war generals, for the south, were also top generals in the union army?

There weren't a lot of other armies employing local Generals at the time.

But Lincoln did not meet with all his top Generals upon taking office, insult them gravely, and make them all realize he was a moron. Trump did. That's why he got a few of them to serve in cabinet positions: They felt the need to protect America from Trump. They are all gone now.

He may have some supporters in the lower ranks, but the guys at the top are all smart and very well vetted before they get there. They know he's unfit for the office. Hell, most of the Republicans in Congress know he's unfit for the office. Most of them are also very well educated and very dedicated to the armed forces relationship to America. They know their history, and are not going to support a coup for a tinpot dictator. Not at all the Trump supporter-type. They are very good at recognizing illegal orders.

I have not read that much about the civil war. However, that being said, I betcha were folks taking the same line before all hell broke loose. Civil wars, I suspect, are kinda different from regular wars and nobody knows how they really start. We do know, however, that this nation, right now, has a bigger percentage of the electorate (close to 50%) than Hitler had when he took over (only around 30%) and that's just for starters.

Most of us here agree that Trump is a loose leaf loon. Some think he is stupid as well. We are talking about somebody who now literally owns the Republican party and beat all comers with relative ease. He was able to beat being convicted by the senate after getting impeached by (I think) unconstitutionally refusing any oversight whatsoever with utter impunity (because, I think, the Democratic House lacked enough gumption to use their constitutional power to get it done). The man may be an ignoramus but he is canny, clever, and flat out deadly and nobody has been able to stop him yet.

I have heard even Democrats say that he is, without a doubt, the most powerful president in the history of the nation.

Anyway, until he is dead he is a danger to me and mine and I WANT HIM GONE!
