  4. Are we seeing the beginning of LGBTQ privilege?

  5. I'm waiting for someone to say; "Why isn't there a straight forum?"

  6. "Youre a lovely woman" –Joe Biden 2019 absolutely disgusting!

  7. Science says there are only 2 sexes.

  8. wow, from what I've seen,dems don't have a chance in 2020. GO TRUMP!!!!!

  9. Most of the videos exposing "pedo Joe" are unreliable and outright lies

  10. The point is the constitution says ALL are created equal and ALL have inalienable rights. ALL means everyone, not those you deem worthy.

  11. Tulsi Gabbard ❤️❤️❤️

  12. Biden comes from the Clinton era of Neoliberals.  The stuff with Ukraine, I give this about a 98% chance of being true, but they will probably cover it up.  His son was involved with a Ukrainian natural gas company and apparently Joe as VP was responsible for American Ukraine foreign policy at the same time. This is exactly what neoliberals do.  That being the case, what do Democratic voters want, they apparently want to vote in more neoliberals. I can only guess they do not truly understand what they are voting for.

    The only ones running who aren't Neoliberal are:

     Bernie Sanders, a Socialist pushing for progressive change. 

    Tulsi Gabbard, a Democrat who also pushes for progressive change,  has a great climate initiative that is already working it's way through Congress called the OFFAct, but most importantly, has a leading priority of ending our failed foreign policy initiative that has had us in endless wars. She is the only one who will end these foreign regime change wars and not get us into another one.  She is a strong peace candidate and a strong Democrat, the likes of which this country hasn't seen in decades. 

    I urge you, if you haven't checked her out yet, head over to her YouTube page, watch some of her videos , her town halls, and listen to what she is saying.  The establishment has been trying to hide this candidate from you.  I think the people of this country should be giving her a close look, she is the best candidate for the people of this country.  You make your own decision, but at least take a look.

  13. A few big differences between Warren & Bernie:

    Bernie has been committed to Medicare for All from the beginning. Warren only recently declared she is fully supportive of Medicare for all.

    Unlike Warren, Bernie is committed to small donor fundraising even in the General election. Warren has said she would only do small donor fundraising in the Primary, so Bernie won't feel any sort of pressure to bend on his policy stances once elected.

    Warren originally planned on voting for Ben Carson as Secretary of Housing, but then flip flopped when she was criticized.

    Warren worked with republicans to repeal the 'Medical Device Tax' which would have helped defund the ACA, in order to appease the Medical Device Industry in her state.

    Unlike Warren, Bernie has a long history of progressivism dating back to the 60s. Warren was a staunch Republican up until the late 90s.

    Bernie has also been one of the longest serving members of congress, he was a mayor in Vermont, and has a lot of experience in governance compared to Warren.

    Warren voted twice to increase the Military budget brought forth under Pres. Trump, which appropriated over $81Billion for purchase of Aircraft, Weapons, Missiles, and Combat Vehicles. On top of that it appropriated several Billion dollars toward other parts of the DoD.

    Bernie wants to cancel all student debt, Warren wants to implement a means-tested solution. A Means-tested program will likely further split people into the "haves" vs. "have-nots" and are easier to attack, dismantle, and weaken. Take a means-tested program like Welfare vs a universal program like Social Security as an example. Welfare is very unpopular whereas Social Security is very popular.

    Why the Differences Between Sanders and Warren Matter

    That Time Warren Cheered Trump. Well, this was disappointing… Elizabeth Warren gives standing ovation to Trump's promise that "America will never be a socialist country."

  20. Thank you Democrats for helping getting Trump re-elected.

  21. I used to be a Democrat! But I realized Democrats are a bunch of liars! look at the Pocahontas cirques Warren brought about! Just to be embarrassed by facts! Look at Nancy Pelosi who criticizes Republicans about many things while she gets campaign contribution from those many things she complains about! THE MOST IMPORTANT THING THAT WE NEED TO BE CONCERNED ABOUT IS THE TERRORIST REGIME OF IRAN WHICH SENATORS WARREN AND SANDERS ARE IN FULL SUPPORT OF! Can you even believe this?! A terrorist regime that Mr. Joe Biden and his Boss, Hussein Obama gave trillions of dollars to THAT HAS KILLED MANY OF OUR BEST SOLDIERS! ARE THESE TWO CLOWNS and Biden FOR OR AGAINST AMERICA AND OUR SOLDIERS? PLEASE LOOK AT THEIR ACTIONS AND THEIR VOTES!

  22. Why do they cater to 1% of the population? We are all AMERICANS

  23. Joe Biden IS UNELECTABLE!
    It's not JUST about the 1994 Crime Bill – it's that the argument Trump and the Russians put forth against Hillary Clinton back then and Joe Biden now WAS THE TRUTH!
    Bill Clinton and Joe Biden ARE responsible for the US mass incarceration AND the prisoner slave labor issue AND the unbelievable growth of private prisons! … and MOST OF THE VICTIMS OF OF THAT POLICY WERE BLACK MEN!
    Joe Biden is unelectable and will lose to Trump!
    Bernie Sanders or Elizabeth Warren or God Knows ANY DEMOCRATIC CANDIDATE BESIDES JOE F**KING BIDEN!!!! in 2020.

  24. No Andrew Yang nor Bernie. They were right to avoid this shitshow.

  25. Why do you Trumpers care about this? Do I go on Fox news and call out the liar?

  26. Bernie 2020 for real democracy

  27. Homosexuals want special privilege.

  28. Matthew 7:15-20 King James Version (KJV)

    15 Beware of false prophets, which come to you in sheep's clothing, but inwardly they are ravening wolves.

    16 Ye shall know them by their fruits. Do men gather grapes of thorns, or figs of thistles?

    17 Even so every good tree bringeth forth good fruit; but a corrupt tree bringeth forth evil fruit.

    18 A good tree cannot bring forth evil fruit, neither can a corrupt tree bring forth good fruit.

    19 Every tree that bringeth not forth good fruit is hewn down, and cast into the fire.

    20 Wherefore by their fruits ye shall know them.

  29. Pete Buttigieg is exactly the right person we need to be President in
    2021. He is brilliant, empathetic, courageous, humble, prepared on every
    issue, inspiring, authentic, steady, focused, highly educated and
    achieving, and kind. And he speaks about and for the future. Vote Pete

  31. lgbtq is SO important…let's focus on it and nothing else…

  32. wow many dislikes. i thought conservative love "freedom" , yet they try to supress freedom to love whoever you want, be whatever you want to be

  33. Chang is now the front runner. $1000 a month for everyone. 🖕

  34. Do you honestly want to force someone to bake a cake for you when the bakery across the street will do it gladly? I prefer not tasting spit when I eat. We need to become less vindictive and controlling in America, regardless of what we believe.

  35. I was a Buttigieg event in Iowa the other day and his homosexuality is toxic. He was on his phone the whole time using Grindr to swipe on gays. He grabbed a few guys' crotches too. Vote for someone normal like Warren or Bernie
