Democrats don't keep losing based on being too centrist. The electoral system favors rural over urban. It comes down to having a candidate who has a message/platform people can believe and trust in. Trump's platform? Take on politicians and pander to people's base instincts-and his base is still lapping it up no matter how much he lies 100%

In response to a confession. People can vote for whomever they choose. It's none of your business. Welcome to democracy.

I wasn't a fan of Biden before, but he can go jump in a lake after saying he'd bring back Obama's penalty for not having insurance and that he'd enact healthcare for illegal immigrants. I had to pay that fucking penalty two years in a row. I was working at a job that didn't offer insurance and the ACA was over $500 a month. I couldn't afford insurance and had to take out fucking loans to pay the penalty. But sure, let's give free healthcare to people who are in the country illegally. I hate Trump, but he was right to remove the penalty. People don't NOT have health insurance because they're being flippant and irresponsible. They can't fucking afford it!

Have you ever considered the possibility that the Dems courting the center is why we keep losing? Gays + Feminists = almost half of the population, and young people are swinging *way* more progressive.

In response to a confession. A lot of those scum were children. I was in college during those years, studying sociology. We did an in depth study about unmanned drone strikes and, sorry, but you're wrong. Many of the people who were killed were never verified as the enemy. I'll never forget the interview we watched with a soldier who was ordered to strike, and seconds after he followed through with the order, 3 kids ran around the side of the building. They were killed. He eventually killed himself. As for the cages, they've existed for years. The migrants have been traveling here in caravans since around the Bush admin. It's a protest for how the USA has destabilized their countries. Children often travel alone, or are brought by gang members/drug runners to help with entry. The kids were held in these same facilities and the numbers have always been high. Not saying any of this to excuse trump, who obviously is a racist, but none of this is new. It's just more televised. This has needed fixed for a long time.

Amazing to see but Trump actually made a accurate fact based tweet today. Never thought he had it in him.

In response to a confession. Gays make up at best 10% of the population. So maybe 9 million out of what 330 million is low. But that still makes them fringe. Sure go ahead and get every feminist vote but at the expense of how many other votes.

Fun fact: AOC, in her district, won by a margin slightly higher than the 70,000 popular votes spread over three states that swung the Electoral College in favor of 45 (despite his overwhelming loss of the total popular vote). Looks to me like one is doing a lot more to "represent" than the other.

Homosexuals and feminists are not "fringe." MOST women consider themselves feminists according to a Washington Post study (70%). A Gallup poll found that nearly 9 million Americans are gay, roughly the population of New Jersey. The only reason people THINK they are fringe is because they are so underrepresented in politics. If you look at Congress, you would think that anything other than old white man is a fringe in this country.

In response to a confession. Because that is all the other side is going to see besides her total lack of qualifications. The Democrats have got to stop to appealing to the fringe. If people get convinced the Democratic Party only cares about gays, feminists and radicals like AOC, hello 4 more years of Trump.
