  1. You could do both this and fix our own issues. Though I do think this will accomplish nothing, and is mostly just the administration giving an FU to Iran

    The Old Man is Back!!!!!!!

    He also has more appeal to white middle class voters than a lot of Democrats. People think because he's a flaming lefty that he would only have success among uber Liberals. Yet look at the last election and the states that he won. White and rural America is where Bernie was winning and picking up delegates. It was the big cities and states with diverse populations that cost him. He needs to do a far better job with African American voters this time to have a chance though. The South dominates the early part of the primary process, and the Democratic Primary electorate in those states tends to be around 70% Black. That''s where Hillary buried him last time, and picked up a lead that Bernie would never be able to make up. He either needs to get more of those voters or pray that enough candidates split that vote.

    What do you mean by candidates "who have a chance"? He does have to improve with minority voters from last time, however he's going to enter the race with as much name recognition as anyone and already has a solid and loyal base established. On top of that he'll have plenty of opponents splitting the main stream Democratic vote

    John Wayne will not be hosting the Oscars

    Yeah I mean I don't know the context here, if someone actively went out and tried to find dirt on an actor whose been dead for 40 years, then that would be kind of odd. Though if they stumbled across a random Playboy article and decided to share it, I don't really see a problem. Reminding people that we're not that far removed from some pretty +++++ed up views being mainstream does have value. John Wayne being an asshole isn't going to effect my Wednesday afternoon in the slightest

    I mean he does seem like kind of an ass based off of those interviews

    Bernie seemed to appeal to working class white Democrats in the primaries, and he excited the base. I think he'd beat Trump

    Kamala’s presidential run Up in Smoke?

    I'm not sure it matters much to the electorate
  8. Well if you want evidence of wide spread homophobia, I'd look to semi recent bans on sodomy, gay marriage, gay people in the military, etc.
  9. I think 26% saying their number one problem is acceptance from their family and peers is quite troubling. There's a reason why most gay people I know stay in the closet throughout high school and usually don't tell their parents until they move out. I do agree with you that society has liberalized a lot in this regard, but to simply say that 90% of gay people never have any issues coming out, does not seem to be true from the gay people I know. Whether it's with their parents, extended family, friends, etc.

    "good character" doesn't always turn out the base. In fact on The Republican side the opposite proved to be true.

    Yes and the Republican Candidate had quite a few flaws himself (like being the least like candidate in history for one). The difference though is that he had a base that loved him, while Hillary didn't. I had the same attitude as you 4 years ago. I liked Bernie better, but kind of wanted Hillary to win because I thought she'd fare better in the general election since she was more "moderate". Looking back though, Bernie did far better in the primary than Hillary with white, working class males, and he could have gotten college kids to turn out. I think he would have won all the states that Hillary won, and probably would have taken Pennsylvania, Michigan, and Wisconsin as well which would have swung the election.

    We went moderate last time and lost to a guy who bragged about sexual assault on tape.

    If they can get someone who excites the base and someone who isn't being investigated by The FBI , then they can absolutely take down Trump in 2020
