Come on folks, please?

We have an abundant wealth of talent that is vying for the Democratic Presidential nomination. Huge. Wish we had a few less players as it is getting confusing. They, the unknown will drift away soon.

Fact is we are in a Constitutional crisis. Symone Sanders said the other day on AM Joy, that we are in dark times. She is correct, Symone, well known as a BS spokesperson has become a senior adviser to Biden. That woman kills it on CNN as a known analysis. She is brilliant.

It's time to listen. And a time to cry. It is time that we all stop fighting and learn to rebuild the base we are standing on. Stop tearing down a foundation that has taken years/ centuries to build. Blood sweat and tears to build. Stop tearing out the bottom bricks to destroy the foundation. Just stop! Fact is. If you want a tree to grow stronger you trim the branches to make it flourish, you most certainly do not cut it off at the roots to regrow something that will take hundreds of years to flourish again. Take out a few of the top bricks to make the bottom ones stronger.

Fact is we have a huge foundation with the ACA. Build on it. Stop killing what we already have. Build on it as it was always meant to be.

Women. Build with them. Their rights, human rights, their bodies theirself. Gay, Native American, POC .

Jaysus, this isn't a competition of he said she said. It is our lives and our future.

Wake up.

1. Well said, she!

 



I'm getting quite frustrated to see that some, who purport to be on our side, apparently haven't learned one thing over the past several years.

9. Actually, now is Primary Time. When in the past we did not disagree with...

 

...some candidates and agree with others during the Primary? Remember, even Barack ran against both Joe and Hillary. We cannot expect it to be different now.

12. Hey Joe.

 

Yep. I know it is the primaries. I got that part. Some candidates campaign on tearing it all down. That is not the way to go, IMHO.

We build to make us stronger. Tearing it down does not work and never will.

18. Personally, I want to post good stuff on my favorites, not bad stuff on the ones

 

I don't really agree with.

And I WILL vote for the Democratic Nominee, even if it turns out to be my least favorite. Better the worst Democrat than tRump!!

24. Yes. We need one another like never before. We can't wound our candidates.

 

An overly nasty primary leaves whomever wins with wounds and doubts that will be used in the general. Yes, argue policy, support your beliefs, but we can snipe this thing into the dirt and continue this slide into darkness.

29. Exactly

 

ACA with a public option as proposed by Biden, O'Rourke and Buttigieg is the only path forward.

MfA is good for sloganeering only but it is suicidal in a GE.
