So you're against large goverment but youre okay with corporations owning and influencing everything including the goverment?

Makes perfect sense.

Where did I say I am okay with corporations influencing government?

Me: I prefer ham to turkey on a sandwich.

F8: So you're okay with cops shooting unarmed people?

While millions of people don't have jobs, have caught covid, can't afford medical debt/insurance, cant pay student loans or rent, you're worried about how boring politics will get.

This is the level of detachment from reality that proves we should never take anything you say seriously because you're a fucking clown.

I think he's more or less saying that he'll go back to not being involved or paying any attention to politics...it's a completely fine stance and the stance of many Americans.

Who are some politicians you admire?  Which ones would you support running for President?

i would have to go thru a list to jog my memory bc i have the memory of a grape. but a few jump to mind

i would adore having susan collins as president. shes super bright, reasonable, strong minded, and wise enough to find wisdom near the middle. theres another republican woman in the senate i like a lot but her name escapes me. shes a lot like susan collins, though

ben carson is a little strange but i greatly respect his intellect and again, his gravitation towards the middle even though he is firmly a republican. i wish he had more balls though and stood up to don more than he has, so it would be a longshot for him to get my vote for president

i like chuck schumer's fiery personality and willingness to say things that need to be said when hardly no one else will say them

i like dick durbin because hes very reasonable and willing to reach across the aisle to work out deals and get things done

i like dianne feinstein who is a little less centric than i prefer but she has a sharp mind and is another one willing to ask the tough questions and say things that need to be said

i like steny hoyer (i think im thinking of the right guy) because when i hear him speak he seems reasonable and respectful of his obligation to work with democrats when things get stuck. i would put richard shelby in a similar category

ive always liked joe biden, but i never really saw him as presidential material. i liked how he made friends with so many regardless of party, but he never seemed commanding enough to hold that big of a job (president). now hes fading and that concerns me, but since he ended up being the ABT candidate, im super glad he won. harris concerns me greatly, i hope she matures fast bc she could be REALLY bad if she doesnt grow up and drop the racist broad-brushing

i used to like john mccain a lot, the version before he ran for president and pandered his ass off. in his earlier years, he was staunchly dedicated to establishing productive relationships with many democrats and bluntly chastised the GOP when they were being dicks

i used to like lindsey graham a lot but hes fallen off my favorites list due to his extreme shift right and his unforgivable flip-flop on the shit king. he used to be a guy that would reach across the aisle and keep things moving in congress, but its like hes been switched with his evil opposite world spock with a goatee self

well that was more than i expected to come up with but its a decent list

And for the past four years you had the Aquarian, who represented all of the above to an idealistic degree.

And although you didn't vote for him, intelligent  Americans (to include myself) did.  We are happy to have gifted you with this golden age.

You're welcome .

Thanks for the reply.  I'm actually okay with a few on your list like Collins and Carson, but pretty progressive for the most part.  Schumer?  Feinstein?  Hoyer?  Durbin?  No way ever for me.  Are there any moderates left from either party?  I keep bringing up Jim Webb.  Why can't a guy like that run for President as a dem?  They basically told him to screw off and go away.  Bill Clinton would be considered a far right wing dem these days.  As rabid and left wing as the dems are getting, I'm going to have to go with what the Repubs put out there.  I can't do crazy or socialist.

well i am a left-leaning centrist and fairly progressive so its no surprise my list would reflect that

jim webb was a good one. so was jon huntsman, who i was very ready to vote for if he won the nomination. of course, he was way too reasonable to appeal to the GOP who were bloodletting to get the half-black man out of office. but i wrote him in anyway bc i didnt think obama deserved a second term

I don’t even think he realizes he does that. Funny, for a guy that thinks he’s smarter than the rest of us rubes.......

I imagine Webb is getting too old to actually run for Prez at this point.  Who out there is fairly similar to Webb?

I was discussing with a business client today on the phone, it's so odd what has happened and how polarized most people are politically....I feel like a lot of people have come out of the woodwork and have completely centered their identity around being hardcore pro or anti trump.  It's just really fucking weird and embarrassing to be honest.

So my question is simple, were you this involved in the day to day, political comings and goings of Washington 6-8+ years ago?

Yes.

I get the feeling he's like 17, so he's at that age where he thinks he knows everything already when in reality he doesn't realize he's just starting and he doesn't understand the complex nuances of things

I didn't mean to imply that you personally did, but the majority of Republicans certainly did. Some of it was outright racism, but a lot of it was just the reality that conservatives like things to stay the same and we've always had white males as presidents so having anything other than that made them uncomfortable and to some degree hostile. It's actually a fear response if you think about it

I find Tulsi Gabbard is fairly centrist, a democrat with some conservative views. Like Webb, she was given no chance.

Yep.  Both got no chance.  Have to be a huge lib or see ya.  Guess I'll be voting Repub as long as that's the way things are.
