It's kind of funny the thee standalone threads we have are for the white male candidates... 👀

I started all of them. If there is a particular candidate you want to start a thread on have at it

I haven't read through this entire thread, but is it common knowledge that this Beto guy was a member of the hacker group 'Cult of the Dead Cow'? Or just something in the tech circle for now?

Damn, apart from him as a candidate, can the dude get any cooler? He's like all the cool Gen X stereotypes came to life.

Says a lot about us doesn't it?

Not really imo. Since I've started all the standalone threads I'll explain. 

 

Warren is a weak candidate, Harris is a little out there. I've spoken highly of klobachar but no one else seems to much like her and I've frequently stated my side eye about booker. 

 

The ones that are really intriguing me right now are Beto and Buttigieg and klobachar

 

Actually I take that back I think it Does say something about us. 

 

There is a Harris standalone - it's an ugly one saying she f***ked her way to the top started by tuxedo. 

 

There's 9nines standalone making fun of Warren about the native American thing. 

 

And then one about klobachar being a big meany. I think this is all pretty telling.

Two things with those numbers:

 

(1) Beto had a very good list already before entering the race, but then again so did Bernie. Money doesn't equal votes, but folks that donate are obviously hardcore and are going to get out the vote, so it certainly is indicative of support at the polls.

(2) While Beto is one of the most exciting candidates, I think the huge numbers, overall, reflect the excitement and energy on the Democratic side in general.

 

But yeah, at the end of the day, cash is king. Not only does it indicate you deep bench of excited supporters, but of course a lot of money early on allows a candidate to spread a message further, earlier.

 

Beto's got about as good a head start as anyone. Let's see what he does with it.

Damn, no wonder the GOP is going after Beto so hard from the jump.

I am relieved to see so far they've dug up a DUI from 20 years ago, and some rambling poetry and crazy writing from when he was 15 or 16. If that's the worst there is, seems like he's in pretty good shape.

Asked about the Green New Deal, O’Rourke says, “I haven’t seen anything better that addresses this singular crisis we face — a crisis that could, at its worst, lead to extinction.”   The clown doesn't have a chance.

Don't be so harsh on Trump. I'm sure he'd put up a reasonable fight by your standards.

Maybe you should have paid attention in class then? Because what you call Marxism 101 is not found in anything Marx wrote. 

 

Other than that, spot on. 

Try reading the book you certainly agree with it. It is about conflict and identity politics is the bastard child of his ideas.

The reality is Marx did not write one single thing remotely similar to what you claimed in your first post. You could backtrack and say you misspoke but I know you won't do that. Likely the response to being exposed will be more anger and petty insults. It's ok, we've come to expect it.

Something odd about a guy polling at around 5% out raising everyone else.

I want to see the average donation size... and his actual policies. His website doesn't even have a policy section.

Not really - polls are pretty meaningless right now

You notice that Bozo's wife never says anything? Good old fashioned libtard there. Perhaps he is trying to impress the Muslim men out there.
