    It is true there are some men who will never vote for a woman. But I think most of those men are among Trump's "deplorables" and will also not vote for a man running against Trump either. Trump is their perfect candidate and no one can change that.

    But please remember that Hillary won the popular vote by nearly 3 million votes and Jill Stein got another 2 % of the vote, so it is clear that most of the country will vote for a woman.

    The bigger issue IMO is whether the Democrat's candidate can stand up to the extreme insults and lies that Donald Trump will certainly unleash at whoever runs against him. I think Warren has shown she can do that. The real killer, however, is Kamela Harris. She clearly has not lost any of her prosecutor's chops and I'm confident would not be intimidated by Trump's disrespect, lies and bullying.

        None of the candidates is making any proposals that can be considered Communist. Some of the Democrats are making proposals, especially on health care, that can be regarded as Socialist. If you are going to throw insults at others, you might at least first learn the difference.

        As for Communist gun barrels, there are very few in the US. The most dangerous gun barrels in the US belong to white nationalists and neo-Nazis, IMO. If I were black I'd put the police on that list too.

        With respect to the "Medicare-for-All" proposals made by many Democrats, I do NOT favor that. Many people like their private insurance and no one should try to remove that option. I do favor "Medicare as an Option for All" which would operate alongside private insurance and be priced so as to recover the government's costs in offering it to those under 65. It would be a low cost option for those not yet 65. It should be an option on the ACA (Obamacare) exchanges and would be subsidized for the poor and near poor.

        Democrats who promise to replace private insurance are making a fatal mistake. The country is no where near ready to accept that.

          I agree that strategically Dems should offer Medicare for all as an option. The problem is that it's such a better deal that private insurance will wither out fairly quickly.

        And yet most of the "shooter" incidents in this country over the past several years have been from white boys. You might also learn the difference between Communism and Socialism. That's what the GOP is counting on - that their followers paint others with a broad brush, that ol' black and white thinking with no room for understanding in between.

Government programs have used blue state dollars to build their roads, electrify their towns, and subsidize their farmers. Most red states and counties are on the government dole.

    Trump has shown that a businessman can be a complete idiot about how economies work. For example, virtually all real economists know trade deficits are unimportant to a nation's economic success. The Trump/GOP tax cut law from 2017 has increased the nation's deficit to more than $1 trillion PER YEAR. All sensible economists know that deficits should decrease during good economic times because they will necessarily increase during bad (recessionary) times. Trump has turned that tenet of good government on its head all to give a tax break to the very rich. In short, Trump is an economic moron.

    As for Obama being a failure, the current economic recovery and success in the United States started in Obama's first term and has continued without significant change through Trump's first two years.

    Trump has embarrassed the United States by giving aid and comfort to our enemies (China, Russia and N. Korea) while insulting and creating separation from our allies (NATO, Canada, Mexico, Taiwan, Australia, Germany, France, to name a few).

    It is true that Trump was never a SUCCESSFUL businessman (6 bankruptcies, plus several failed enterprises that skirted bankruptcy (e.g., Trump University). It is also true that Trump is not a self-made rich man. First he is not nearly as rich as he claims as documented in Forbes and several books. Second, he inherited his wealth from his father. Analysis shows that if the $400+ million he inherited had been invested in simple mutual funds, Trump's wealth would be about the same as it is today. Third, much of Trump's wealth was transferred to him through illegal tax avoidance schemes that are unfortunately beyond the statute of limitations. He has also benefited from loopholes in our tax laws that allow real estate developers to shield much of their income from taxes. Trump was born rich and has managed to stay rich despite being a terrible businessman.

        Try Googling Trump's Lies. Washington Post keeps a running list which I think is near 8000 since inauguration.

            No. I read the Washington Post daily and do not recall any accounts of Trump's lies being retracted.

            Of greater concern to me, Trump continues to tell the same lies even when called out on them. Obama quit saying "You can keep your doctor" once it was clear that that would not be the case 100 % of the time (even though it was true almost all the time).

            You really need to get out of your Fox News bubble.

      If you own a holding company that owns hundreds of subsididiaries and real property ventures and only have 6 bankruptcies you are not a failure or bad business person.

      Even Warren Buffet has made some bad investments. That's what happens when you take risks, sometimes they pay off, sometimes they don't. Only a hater would focus on the failures without acknowledging the successes.

        Trump has not only had bankruptcies, he has also been forced to close businesses shown to be fraudulent (e.g., Trump University). His Foundation was closed because of fraud. Trump is well known to stiff sub-contractors on his projects, which is a form of fraud. No US bank will lend the Trumps money because his history of defaults is so bad. Businesses have a credit rating that is on a different scale than the one used with people, but Trump's is reportedly 19, which is 30 points lower than just average (I think that is from Woodward's recent book).

        None of these things has ever been said about Warren Buffet.

        Trump is a terrible businessman and it has been well documented in books and news articles. Those books and articles are based on public records and court transcripts from the many times Trump has been sued. Soon the House Democrats will have his tax returns and then we will have even more evidence.

        And, really, after 2 years on the very public stage of the presidency, how can anyone not realize that Trump has no idea what he is talking about when it comes to business or the economy? His own Cabinet officials and senior aides point out his stupidity.

        You might feel differently if you were a small business contractor and Trump reneged on your contract. Which he did, thousands of times. Sorry I agreed to the cost of putting in the landscaping but it seems like too much now. I'll pay you for half that (and you'll have to let staff go to accommodate as well). What am I saying? Trump would never apologize; it's just "the art of the deal." Who cares about the collateral damage to lives and livelihoods.

        How has it come to this; that exhibition of a noble deed has fallen into such disfavor? Who would have thought in the years of famine and drought that an act of survival would come to suffer revilement and condemnation by both the great unwashed and the cognoscenti. While those who claim righteousness as their guiding principle scream from the gutters of the forum where are the voices of those who have tasted life anew resulting from their will to survive? If we do not survive to eat, how can we eat to survive? If this statement causes you some confusion I refer you to the doors of death.

        While nowhere is it written that we must survive, if we survive not then who will do the writing. Who indeed will pen the noble words for other men to live by, to read and cherish, take to heart and be informed of their duty? If duty exists not, do we then exist not to do? What sensible kind of life is this? These ideas are curdled from the fermenters of useless elixirs who strive to enrich themselves by plucking caloric enrichment from your larder. The chosen are few, the masses are many. Who among us can count the numbers rightfully accorded survival by starvation? If no one can eat anyone, can planet overload be far distant in a bleak future? I say nay, doom and peril loom ever nearer if we do not consume one another in holy rites of suppertime: to argue against the praiseworthy practice of self consumption is to scream heresy to the universe. Either we will survive consuming each other or we will perish with nothing but a carrot in our mouth.

        Go forth and eat.

          Kamala Harris showed her true spirit while interrogating Judge Kavenaugh. Had she ever heard of innocent until proven guilty? No evidence, no proof. She was rude and insulting and instead of asking questions to get answers she was all about you're guilty no matter what you say. There is no way I would vote for her, bring on a Margaret Thatcher and I would consider voting for a "qualified" woman. I am a woman by the way.

            That is not how I saw her questioning of Kavanaugh. Kavanaugh was being evasive in his answers and Harris responded by being tough. There was (and is) credible evidence that Kavanaugh engaged in sexual assault in his high school and college years and Harris was trying to get to the truth. That was her job as a member of the Committee. It was not the Committee's job to approve Kavanaugh; it was their job to determine if he deserved approval.

            A Senate hearing is not a trial. It is an interrogation. Harris is a good interrogator. Under the circumstances Kavanaugh was not entitled to a presumption of innocence. No one was threatening his freedom. There is no Constitutional right to a seat on SCOTUS.

            The presumption of innocence is for proceeding in a court of law. It has absolutely no bearing on a congressional hearing. This is really basic stuff, good luck getting up to speed on 10th grade civics.

            I think we can tell what kind of woman you are. There are lots like you behind Trump - those who get their politics from their husbands and are resentful of intelligent, educated, free-thinking ones. Kavanaugh was being evasive and disrespectful, but I guess in every scenario one brings his or her own prejudices and experiences to the situation.

        But look at the bright side, I’m sure you will receive your money through the trickle down effect.

          In a couple of years more of your refund will disappear. While the wealthy keep there tax benefits. That trickle down thing is you are getting pissed on.

            Trump to El Paso for a rally. Nobody wants to hear more BS from the worthless clown. We are sick and tired of his bull *bleep*. His credibility is a zero. His administration sub zero.

            The average refund is down 8% this year. It would appear most didn't understand they had to change their status and many will be owing. It's equal parts funny, ironic and sad.

        Because I'm also guessing they didn't get around to changing their status. So, you spent that money already.

Trump first

Why would you put Trump first on the list, it is a parlor trick to get the result you want, Trump is the worst thing to happen to America, since Abraham Lincoln was murderd and the traitor Andrew Johnson replace him.. Shame to you all.

Trump is going to sign the compromise bill. NO WALL!! Of course, the easiest thing in the world to predict is that the usual sycophants and Russian Useful Idiots (a.k.a Trump voters) will try and tell us that he actually won. Just wait. It will be fun to watch.

Truck Fump. A criminal, liar, fraud, traitor, he should be in prison.

Wow, I can't believe how many ignorant morons still support Fump. He is f-ing you in the bu_t, and you just smile and say "give me more Donnie baby"! Wait until you see your tax returns, then go watch your fake fox "news" so they can lie to you about EVERYTHING! I'm not sure the I.Q. of fump supporters on here would reach a 3 digit total if you added them all together. Vote to save Democracy, vote Democrat!

    Yeah, and Trump is incredibly stupid too. I honestly don't think he can read above a fourth grade level. He had the gall to dis Obama for reading off the teleprompter, now he does it himself, only he sounds like he just learned how to read and speak english. Remember when we all thought Bush was a dummy? Trump makes him look like Einstein.
