After May 30th,

Last edited Sun May 17, 2015, 09:43 PM - Edit history (3)

and after Martin O'malley declares (and he will) — I really believe that the Democratic Primary will get very interesting.

Right now, when we look/listen to the MSM, it seems as though all eyes are on SoS/Senator Clinton.

Senator Sanders is getting very little attention. I believe that with O'Malley entering the race people will start to pay attention to the fact that the Dems are actually going to have a real primary. They will stop focusing on Hillary Clinton all day every day and will have to pay attention to the candidates that are running for office.

I think it is a good thing for all Dems. I think it will be a good thing for the O'Malley campaign. 14 days, and the race for the democratic nominee begins.

Against the TPP.
Against the death penalty.
Supports the DREAM act. (Maryland was the first state to pass the DREAM act)
Supports comprehensive immigration reform.
Against detention camps for immigrant families. (Hat tip elleng)
Supports Stem cell research.
Supports abortion rights.
Supports Middle-out economics as opposed to trickle-down economics.
Against School vouchers.
Supports giving educators what they need.
For public financing of elections.
Pro Gun control.
Supports the ACA and wants to make it stronger. link
Supports increasing funding for the National institute of Health.
Believes that our first responders are the first defense in the United states to protect citizens from terrorists attacks. (see other links I have posted in this group)
Formally recognized the Piscataway tribe
Supports Marriage equality.
Supports raising the minimum wage.

ETA:
Supports re-instating Glass-Steagall and Tougher Wall Street reform (Hat tip to Jim Lane)
Supports reducing Student Loan Debts and has a solution to do so.
Supports investing in infrastructure. (Hat tip to Koinos )

I can go on… He is on the record for all of this. Add more and I will update this list!

That said, I want to let him sing for himself, and this is a great rendition of this song!



We are all in this together!

1. HRC is my back pocket choice.

If she emerges victorious, I will of course support her as the Democratic candidate.

Until then, I welcome the debate, and the opportunity to support any alternative... any alternative to the left of her.

Hell, I'll support any alternative to the left of Benito.

4. K&R. Thanks for posting.

I didn't know about the Piscataway recognition. I met a large group of them years ago when my company was doing a project in Accokeek, Maryland. They were trying to get Federal recognition. Guess I know who they'll be voting for.

The article's subtitle: "Can former Maryland governor and 2016 hopeful Martin O'Malley gin up interest in tougher Wall Street reform?"

11. Thank you.

I have been researching O'Malley and can't find anything to disagree with. It is almost surreal. And he has been believing this stuff for a long time. It is not just a "new suit" he is putting on to to win an election.
