Trumpism is ugly, and Leftism is absurd
Does he stick to his principles and nominate another True Believer?

Or does he bend over for the party and nominate one of those moderates he doesn't like?

It would be fun to watch, that's for sure.

I don't think we'll get the chance to find out. DNC will cut him out like they did in 16

I think even if it means conceding the election it’s for the best of the party

What? To keep him from the nomination, steal it from him and give it to who? Biden??? Bloomberg??? Warren??? Or any of the less popular candidates? If he's the frontrunner, running on their ticket...….then he does deserve the nomination. IF the DNC didn't want him to represent them, they should have prevented him from running as a D.

If the DNC does nominate Crazy Bernie, Crazy Bernie has indicated he would want a female, so that could mean Crooked Hillary, or Micheal Obama even!

If Bernie is going run as a Democrat, it has to be a half Puerto-Rican, half black, atheist, socialist, lesbian with a disability and six toes on one foot, in order to respect the party's platform.

The ramifications of Bernie becoming the nominee will hurt the party and country for years to come. Might as well steal it from him again.

Tulsi Gabbard backed Sanders in 2016.

She supports the Green New Deal.

She supports reparations for slavery.

She wants a $15 minimum wage.

She believes college should be free.

She supports closing down all existing nuclear power plants.

She supports a ban on assault weapons.

She supports Medicare For All.


Healthcare For All

People Before Profits & Politics "People Before Profits". An age-old socialist slogan.

Racial Justice

Hold Wall Street Accountable
“We must break up the big banks, reinstate Glass-Steagall, and get our economy back to working for the benefit of all Americans.”

Second Amendment Rights & Gun Safety
“We don’t have to wait for answers to these questions for Congress to pass legislation already supported by a majority of Americans, like universal background checks, closing the gun show loophole and reinstating a federal ban on military-style assault weapons.”


Here's a bill cosponsored by Tulsi:

H.R.40 Commission to Study and Develop Reparation Proposals for African-Americans Act To establish a commission to study and consider a national apology and proposal for reparations for the institution of slavery.


"I'll usher in a Green Economy":

Tulsi Gabbard would be great!
That actually would be a formidable pairing.
Commie and Commie Lite?

Bad Commie, Good Commie?

Scary old white male curmudgeon Commie and fluffy lovable female Commie?

"I'm gonna take your money" Commie and "Please give me your money" Commie?

"I hate the military" Commie and "I served in the military" Commie?

And you wonder why Trump is going to win the Presidential election. :laughing0301:
