    I'll start the GoFundMe. The fact that you're even worried about the greased palms aspect tells me you're the right person for the job.

    There are and I hope the majority support the eventual nominee, Bernie or not. But the ultra-vocal "Bernie or burn it down" portion of his following is selfish and abhorrent.

    The latter confuse me. I just saw one on Twitter that I immediately suspected was a Russian bot until I looked at her feed and saw that she wasn’t, and that she’s just ... stupid. She was going on about how they were gonna BURN DOWN THE TWO PARTY SYSTEM ... while campaigning for a guy who’s using the two-party system. Okay, Karen.

    Blocked.

    I think it's a mix: A. those still feeling aggrieved from the way things shook out in 2016, B. fakes / bots planting seeds of discontent, and C. naive idiots easily influenced by A and B. What percentage of each?..no idea.

    I'm not giving them any ad revenue but based on the title of this...I think it's really funny they think they're breaking news when we have years and years of evidence that Bloomberg thought racial profiling was just policy. He admitted and 'apologized' for it because his strategists and managers told him he had to not because he had some epiphany.

    I'm laughing because of how fractured the democrats are for candidates vs. how lock step the republicans are behind Trump.

    I'd like to remind you that Al Franken resigned after ALLEGATIONS of sexual misconduct, while any Republican with a proven history of assault is still welcomed by the party.

    Allegations of misdoings can absolutely sink a Democratic candidate. I'm not saying it *will* (I haven't even listened because I honestly don't care; I doubt he'll get the nod and if he does he's getting my vote over Trump). But to think that Democrats and Republicans are held to the same moral standards is hilariously misguided.

    I think it has more to do with the fact that we already know who Bloomberg is. This shouldn't shock anyone.

    Democrats hold themselves and others to this higher moral standard.

    Republicans claim to be the party of morals, but they actually have none.

    Perhaps Democrats need to ease up on strict purity tests, lest they hand the Presidency to the most evil prick of them all.

    I think part of the issue, for many Democratic voters, is that any Democratic candidate has really big shoes to fill when compared to President Obama. I still see people CRY when Obama appears anywhere. This is likely, at least partly, due to who’s in the office, now, in comparison.

    Voters concerned after Nevada Democratic Party hires former Buttigieg campaign staffer as its new Voter Protection Director.

    You would think after the connections between Pete and the app behind the clusterfuck in Iowa that they would care about the optics of this. Emily Goldman worked as an organizer for Pete from October 2019 until February 2020, where she then became Voter Protection Director of the Nevada State Democratic Party in February 2020. After this was discovered, she locked her Twitter account and scrubbed her employment history from LinkedIn.

    https://news3lv.com/news/local/voter...tigieg-staffer

    P.S. Troy Price, the chair of the Iowa Democratic Party and another one who brought us the clusterfuck that is the Iowa caucus, was a Senior Advisor for Hillary Clinton in 2016.

    Guys get back on ETS tone police approved topics, like bashing Bernie supporters exclusively by perpetuating mainstream media "Bernie Bros" smear narratives.

    11/3/2020 - President, Senate, House, LOCAL

    I must be missing the deeper meaning behind breaking into name calling and insults. Why is that necessary to the discussion?
