Hey @6...by your language it's clear you're not a Democrat. So thanks for the advice, but we'll figure this out on our own. And unless you backed Trump, you likely didn't win either. So on what pedestal are you elevating your theories of political strategy?
commented on Kshama Sawant Provides an Excellent Assessment of the Political Situation in the US
I am a liberal progressive Democrat. I previously supported Sawant to move our joint goals forward. But no longer. If Sawant is unable to see the benefit of a coalition, then I have no interest in helping to building the platform on which she attacks my party. And really, on which she attacks progressive values; progressives have to make progress to be progressive. Sawant sits in her City Council Seat with support from a majority of Democrats who elected her. I will make the case that it's now time to remove that support.

@5...OK. I don't consider you an honest interlocutor. The idea that Clinton needs to reveal every detail to you is simply a notion I don't ascribe to. And I doubt you really do either; this was just another moment to ding her.
& re: trump? The medical records he has released are a joke, and nothing like the medical records HRC has released. But then again, I don't buy that you actually care to have a logical discussion about this.
commented on The Election Is Tightening—Don't Waste Your Vote
@73...I've engaged Stein (and Sanders b4 that) voters in plenty of serious discussions about deep policy issues. Spoken at length about serious topics. And have just come to the conclusion that they really aren't interested in having an actual dialogue. They tend to like their outsider tribalism, their purity of position, and their tantrums. I'm simply done catering to them, because this meme of "just treat us nicely! or we'll take our toys and go home" is boring, old, and I now believe, simply untrue. So you go ahead and continue to play their game. I'm going to just call them idiots.
