61. 1 good thing, as he flipped on the 4 year tuition free public uni

 

We could pay the tuition for all 15 million public community college and public university students for around one tenth of what we spend on the military/war/surveillance/security state each year. That is hardly 'pie in the sky', and it certainly was not considered pie in the sky by Biden himself when he proposed it in 2015. The ROI on that would be massive, it would drive the economy at a supercharger level from a multiplicity of data points. It also would free up the debt slaves that are now millions of student loan holders to spend money on tangible goods, (hell maybe even buy a house) instead of enriching rapacious banks and lending institutions. That would further drive the economy.


Because I took a swipe there, I will be fair add a big positive and say I do trust Biden in terms of temperament to run the nation in a calm manner (not just in comparison to that fucking monster Trump, I mean in any case).
If I were to vote in a presidential
primary today, I would vote for:
Joe Biden
