None of these candidates alone has the personality to defeat Trump alone. I think all four of them will be publicly promised some position of power well before the election. That way the Democratic voters won't feel like their man or woman was completely cut out and sent to retirement (or in Pete's case to a media position).


I understand your reasoning, but I'm not a fan. I don't like, "Playing politics," so to speak, because some things are better left to the supposed professionals. My thinking is that I don't go to the ballot box in order to vote against who I want to lose, I'm there to vote for who I want to WIN, and that's why I Grabbed The Johnson (voted for Libertarian candidate, Gary Johnson) in 2016, even knowing it was hopeless.

They say to those who don't vote that they, "Must accept the results because they didn't do anything about it."

I think anyone who willingly lets it boil down to a, "One or another," type thing is accepting that one or the other mentality. And, I promise you this, BOTH major parties want it to be and remain that way.

I do not accept.

If I was a Trump hating Dem, I'd
be weeping like a baby at what
the debate stage looks like
tonight. Not one of them has
a chance in hell of beating Trump
and they know it.
If you take a risk, you may lose. If you never take a risk, you will always lose.

How would you quantify, "No chance in hell?" What kind of odds are you going to lay me on Trump v. Literally Anyone on Stage Tonight?

I know, you don't gamble by this means. I also know you did not mean literally NO chance, just couldn't pass it up.

I would give you odds of 100 to 1 but you can only bet up to a buck two fifty.

I maintain that a society with a high abortion rate is a society in irreversible decline.


I would maintain just the opposite. Why would we want to bring more people into this crappy world that we are destroying? I think every woman should have to pass multiple fitness tests to not have an abortion.

It's very very hard to beat the
incumbent. One that has a roaring
economy, forget it. It's a stage
of old tired bozos, Commies,
fake Indians, Gay small town
mayors, and some rich guy
nobody ever heard of. You do
the math.

I tend to agree. I am looking to bet more on Trump, despite having thousands on him already to win in 2020.
