    Hawaii Rep. Tulsi Gabbard took aim Wednesday at the Democratic Party establishment, claiming the party is not “of, by and for the people.”

    During the Democratic presidential debate, Gabbard was asked about her feud with former Secretary of State and two-time failed presidential candidate Hillary Clinton.

    “Our Democratic Party, unfortunately, is not the party that is of, by and for the people,” Gabbard said.

    (snip)

    Gabbard said if she wins the presidency, “I will end this foreign policy, end these regime-change wars, work to end this new Cold War and arms race and instead invest our hard-earned taxpayer dollars actually into serving the needs of the American people.”

    BJ -

    Is she not watching what The State Department does when someone tries this?

    “It is a party that has been and continues to be influenced by the foreign policy establishment in Washington, represented by Hillary Clinton and others’ foreign policy, by the military-industrial complex and other greedy corporate interests,” she added.

    Gabbard said she wants to be elected president so she can “rebuild” the Democratic Party and “puts it in the hands of the people of this country.”


    BJ - You may be in the wrong party kid.
    I know Hawaii is a one party state - but still.

    If she believes what she says, then it is gravely dishonest of her to run as a Democrat.

    To maintain any integrity, she must run independently.

    She has literally no chance to be President as a Democrat or an Independent.
    She is one lowly member of the House - sure to be isolated.
    If she really believes that she could be much more effective working in the Trump Admin.

    By noting that you have to be suggesting a third party as there is very little different in the establishment of the (D) or (R) party.

    Let me know when you go to a ball game and hope that a team not playing will win.
    Then the rest of your posts will make sense.

    For the vast majority of games played on any weekend, I do not care who wins. My vote for president hasn't been for the winner in a long time. It has kept my conscience clear for many years now.
