    I don’t think so about Beto, he’s already given two terrible answers to two different public challenges this week alone. They were cringeworthy. You had the student challenge him on his lack of charitable giving, his answer was basically I’m here and am running for public office, that’s my charity. Yesterday, I think, another voter just challenged him on his lie that he wouldn’t take any donations from the oil industry, which now his stance is he’s not going to ignore an entire industry. He’s just not adept at maneuvering politically enough. Those were challenges from his supporters, what happens when it’s hard hitting challenges from an opponent.

    Idk I might be wrong but we’ll see

    You left out GilliBrand.

    And Joe hisself left out GaBBard. And KloBuchar.

    (Also left out Castro, Delaney, Harris, Hickenlooper, Inslee, Messam, Ryan, Swalwell and Yang)

    Looks like a lot of Yin was missed for the Yang actually.....

    Bernie is not a "commie" any more than freaking Denmark is-- he's a Democratic Socialist, a characterization co-populated by the likes of Willy Brandt, Nelson Mandela, Jawaharlal Nehru, Jeremy Corbyn, David Ben-Gurion, François Mitterand, Bertrand Russell, Helen Keller, Roger Waters, MLK, George Orwell, Mahatma Ghandi, Albert Einstein, Christopher Hitchens, and the current PM of New Zealand in the news recently, Jacinda Ardern.

    Also notably Tommy Douglas, who got Canadian universal health care started.

    Conflating different terms is dishonest and counterproductive, and serves only to foster ignorance. Intentionally misrepresenting your own (itself incomplete) list erodes whatever claims of objectivity you thought you came in with.

    Haha...that’s quite clever....A ”Democratic Socialist” is a proponent of commie-lite economics. You can’t spin it...sorry.

    Watching you amuse yourself is comedy gold..thanks for that.
    Do you always masturbate in front of a mirror?
    People are not “ignorant” simply because you say they are...you know that right?

    It's interesting, in a psychology kind of way, that when I post about political labels and logic, what you think of is "masturbation".

    You might wanna get that looked at.

    I know that's what you wish... but frankly, anyone would be more articulate than Trump. Trump isn't going to get the kind of passes he got in 2016.
