A Democrat to vote for
« on: November 13, 2020, 10:58:39 AM »
Since I've left the Democrat side, I find most of them very quite crazy. However, there is one that seems like he's still sane. That is Joe Manchin from WV. He's against the crazy, harmful things like packing the Supreme Court, the Green New Deal, defunding the police, etc.

This is actually a Democrat I would vote for. He's not trying to force his opinions on people. He also wants to support the working class (which the Democrats have rejected since they hate them now). Since he's still around, there is at least a little hope for the Democrats.

I thought Andrew Yang was a pretty good candidate as well.  Not enough politico experience, but that may be a good thing!  Cheers!

Yang I like but is a hair too aggressive on some of the issues. Manchin is good, I agree.

Tulsi was pretty solid as well. Seems honest and anti-establishment from a party perspective.

Tulsi and Manchin are terrific people - that's why they will never go anywhere with the Squad running the show.

I agree about Manchin, and Tulsi... even she's quite liberal.

The poor way (imo) how she managed the dispute with Hillary Clinton probably destroyed Tulsi Gabbards political career.

Steve Buttigieg is a rising star and imo will get a post in the Biden administration. If he earns some chops there, he can go very far.
