US Domestic Politics

Discussion of US politics and their world impact.

Bottom Line, Trump can beat Hillary, He Can't Beat Bernie

This is the bottom line, and the polls show it. If Hillary is the nominee, Trump can beat her simply by playing the "I'm not bought by lobbyists and Hillary is" card and by going after Bill Clinton's scandals in the dirtiest way he can. It could work for Trump. People are fed up with the status quo, Even liberals are angry about the selling out that Obama did. Some liberals might even break for Trump over Hillary just to shake things up.

Difference in foreign policy between Clinton and Sanders

I know Bernie voted against the Iraq war, and Clinton has a solid record of Imperial sin as Secretary of State, But what about the differences in the visions moving forward from here? Bernie says he does not want to see america be the world policeman. That sounds good but then it sounds like all he is really saying is he wants more involvement form the Saudi's or whoever to create a stronger imperial team overall. So please tell me what about Bernie's present visions imply a significant break from the constant warfare state?

Help MoveOn endorse Bernie Sanders before Sunday 3rd!

Hi Guys,

A new petition is currently running asking MoveOn to call a membership vote to endorse a candidate before the Iowa Primary. On the Run Warren Run website MoveOn state:

“We'll consider potential endorsements later on in the cycle if it appears MoveOn members might coalesce around a particular candidate. As in any election, if we do ultimately endorse a candidate, that endorsement would follow a MoveOn member vote.”

Bernie attacking trump, but trump doesnt really fire back???

The past couple of weeks Bernie has been attacking trump, but the only response i have seen from trump is a tweet that said

.@BernieSanders-who blew his campaign when he gave Hillary a pass on her e-mail crime, said that I feel wages in America are too high. Lie!

— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump)

That was in response to Bernie saying trump wants low wages

Obama might well have stunted the emergence of a rightwing populist movement if he had pursued an aggressive populist strategy of his own, one that demonstrated government could effectively challenge giant corporations and unbridled private greed on behalf of small business and the average family...

Bernie Sanders Tweet

Bernie has confirmed for all to see that he is truly an economic ignoramus with one tweet. The scary part is he based his entire campaign on the economy and he is even worse on foreign policy. WOW. Although Bernie has proven time and time again that he is a total dummy, he is still just a little smarter than his supporters. So, he does still have that going for him.

In case you missed it:

"you have families out there paying 6, 8, 10 percent on student debt but you can refinance your homes at 3 percent. What sense is that?"

Rumination of Ruination

The abomination [aka cable news] of worst-cable-news of 2015.

A panel discusses whether women should wear leggings and because they aren't pants are they good or not? The fox panel is all men.

Schlong Don

Rember Clarence called himself Long Dong Silver in front of Anita Hiill? Well Trump likes schlong and it rhymes with Don somewhat. DONALD'S PORN SCREEN NAME MAYBE?

Muslim/Arab public relations gambit

Since Arabs in general and Muslims specifically are feared, a major multi-pronged pr effort is needed and cannot hurt.

How fossil fuels and the shale boom saved the United States.....for now.

Bernie Sanders and others talk about "investing" in Green Energy Projects, Translation (bend over tax payer) Solar and Wind can't began to compete with fossil fuels even as heavily subsidized as it is. Maybe someday it will be competitive but for now it's not even close. Like it or not the US uses over 800 million gallons of oil everyday. Since the Shale boom energy companies have driven down the price to a point where it's saving Americans 1 Billion dollars a day that they can spend other places.

The Problem of the Establishment

One thing that both parties have in common in this primary season is the fact that there's a sharp divide between "We, the People" populism, and the rich and powerful Washington establishment.

On the Republican side, Donald Trump is leading the race by running on a populist platform based on the fact that he's not beholden to the billionaires or lobbyists, and that he's never been part of the political establishment.
