107. Use a calendar.

In 2018, there is no presidential election. Telling Gillibrand that we don't want her for president has no effect on 2018 elections. It won't harm 2020 either. She would be a poor choice to lead a ticket. As would any of the politically inept who took part in that stupid debacle. Are you saying that there are not intelligent, savvy Democrats who can run for president?

And yes, we are completely fucked as long as we think any Democrat will do. Suppose Sarah Palin put a D by her name and ran. Here in Texas we used to have a whole legislature filled with bigots and reactionaries with D's by their name. If the party doesn't stand for anything but winning, why would anyone vote for one over the other except for selfish reasons. As a white male, most of what I vote for works against me financially. If I didn't care what a party stood for, the republicans would do better for me. Why do you want too stop trump's judicial nominees if you don't care what the party means?

This is not a distraction. This is what elections are about.

And again you ask to just move on. Should we move on from racism. Tell all of the black people to just forget about all those police shootings. And Viet Nam. Just don't think about it. It is too distracting. So move on forget it.

We do not agree on this. You are making a decision to ignore candidate's actions. Screw that. The republicans did that and got trump. I bet they said that they should just move on from each of trump's abominations. Just move on, they said. Just think what we can get if we don't care what we get.
