Name a Democrat That You Think Could Beat Trump is 2020?

 

There is NO DEMOCRAT that immediately comes to mind - None

 

Oh Sure - You All Have Your Favorites - But we are talking a - National Stage

 

The Populist Front-runner isn't even a Democrat

 

Both He & The Leadership of the Democratic Party are too old and lack the Stamina for a 2 - 3 year long grueling campaign....................

 

In another Post I outlined over 138 US Government Policies - Trump & The GOP Quietly Implemented - most of you never heard of any of them - WHY?

 

2 Reasons - They Either Benefited Democrats in Congress & Their Donors - or the Democratic Leadership was AGAIN too Inept at motivating their base to get out and make some noise

 

The Largest Delegation of Protestors Against The GOP Tax Bill Were All Handicapped Americans

 

Able-bodied grass roots Democrats were AGAIN - MIA

 

WHY - NO COMPETENT LEADERSHIP

 

Just like in the 2016 Presidential Election - The Democratic Leadership and the Drag on the Party - Hillary - Thought all they had to do was sit back and Americans were smart enough to not only make the correct choice but get up and leave their TV's Computers & Cell Phones long enough to Go Vote

 

They misjudged badly and if you look back at 2017 - once again the Democratic Leadership doesn't think it's necessary to HARP on the obvious - they have learned nothing

 

They have NO VIABLE NATIONAL CANDIDATE

 

Here is the only list of potential candidates that have any kind of even a Local Presence - unless they pull another Obama out of a HAT & that only happens at most - once a generation

 

Sanders - Gillibrand - Biden - Warren - Harris - Booker - Murphy - Merkley - McAuliffe - Bullock (not Sandra BTW) - Klobuchar - Cuomo - Ryan

 

GOOD LUCK

 

Trump has already Defined many of them in the minds of Voters and it ain't Pretty

 

 

 

 


You're right.  'The donald' and his RRRR base have been able to focus attention on irrelevant shenanigans to the exlusion of seeing the real issues

 

That is not a new ploy. It is what a con-man does when he runs a scam. In this case, Political Stability and the National Welfare has been put on the back burner.  That burner isn't turned on. 

 

The media has been complicit whether or not they wanted or intended to be. They've been had and it's questionable if they can recover.  When they are no longer useful they will be disposed of if at all possible.  It's in progress.  The same goes for Institutions that could or would thwart the drive toward an authoritarian autocracy with plutocratic, theocratic overtones.

 

We have no real alternative to show the disgruntled citizen when, as the bumper sticker says...........'_ _ _ _ happens'. That applies to both candidates and policy.

 

A viable third party would be a start.  That would allow coalitions of rational people of different political persuasions to form a coalition in the National Interest.  We're close, but we aren't there yet. That is anathema to the two Parties. Complete Campaign Funding Reform would help solve that issue.

Just as an aside -  since I am NOT a Democrat, - thank goodness
Many disabled people liked the tax plan because the TCJA expanded the ABLE Act.
