    Trump 2020🇺🇸.
    These Democratic morons say the same thing, but yet for the past 35 years have done nothing what their promising now. Trump has done more within 3 years than any demirat has ever done in my life. Numbers don't lie.
    Proof is in the cities that they run. 💩🦟💊🗑️🐀.

    Favorite thing about Yang is that he’s one of the few democrats that can admit that government funded anything is wildly inefficient and is looking for innovative solutions to put money into the economy without relying on politicians to handle it for all Americans

      Steven Arvizu he wants to fix the college system by raising the number of faculty per students and a bunch of other things which is good but he's said multiple times during interviews that he is for free college

    • Steven Arvizu

      Bill Johan he’s not for free college it’s on his website he actually wants to cut funding to colleges to force them to bring the cost of schooling down in order to get government grants

    All of these dummies are too stupid, ignorant, or naive to realize that the ONLY reason we've been in Afghanistan for 18-years is for the US military to protect our heroin poppy fields there from the Taliban. They have no oil, so why are we there? To protect SAND PRODUCTION??

      Tracy Sohl I have a theory that he’s letting them talk themselves into a corner, they do t have many thorough plans to solve anything so the longer they talk the more you realize it. The only guy that sounds reasonable is the one that directly answers the question and makes sense rather than just filling 2 minutes about how great America is and whatnot

    Every candidate is giving incoherent nonsense. I cannot support any of the above based on this. By this point you have a responsibility to Afghans. Sanders is an incoherent mass of outdated cliches. Biden is a F*cking Mess. His withdrawal led to ISIS. The part about "Kurds™(not PKK)" and "Shia" is Insane. It neglects the rampant sectarianism of the "Shias" and Iran and Syria (the engine motivating ISIS) and neglects Sunnis and the Christians and gives too much probable power to Iranian terrorist militias. He has not learned from his mistakes and I Can't Even.

    • Hunter Hemingway
      Hunter Hemingway 2 months ago

      I'll also suggest that maybe what needs to be done for the troops isn't in some form of violence. military will progressively become more robotic and troops will need support. immense financial reciprocation and services/benefits.
      so you'll want someone who is empathetic, and thoughtful in their reactions.

    • Hunter Hemingway
      Hunter Hemingway 2 months ago +1

      interesting view of bowing down. the protestors words were indistinguishable. they gave them zero video time. it just made Biden slip up a bit & people feeling some kind of way.
      try...relaxing maybe. also, hope you know how to spell "weak."

    OH hell...Oh Harris. we have tried to talk talk talk talk to our allies and Taliban. It does not work. Harris you do not understand who the hell we are dealing with. I can assure you that at any time and place in the middle east, a radical Islamic terrorist group can form a 2 million man army in under a year. Talks between us and allies will never stop this inevitable problem. Hundreds of Millions of radicals around the world seek to destroy America in there name of there god and there belief. You can pretend its not real because you have your security blanket or you do not wish to learn the truth but it is real. Now if you really think that by reducing military spending down to add a few dollars to your pocket is a good thing your delusional.

      You don't live in the Middle East. If the USA wouldn't have gone there, terrorism against the west wouldn't have existed. America funded terrorism against itself. That's the concensus in Europe, Australia and Canada.

    Joe Biden supported the Iraq War. At a time when Iraq War veterans are still suffering PTSD, permanent disabilities, and staggeringly-high suicide rates, we can't yearn for "normalcy" so badly that we overlook a politician's Iraq War vote. Biden is completely unfit and unqualified to be president.

      @AmooToma for oil security. For global stability especially in the oil industry. The region was already in turmoil. Iran kicking out the USA in '70s (After investment in oil infrastructure and connections with its previous leader who was overthrown in popular uprising). Iran vs Iraq war in '80s. Iraq invading and occupying Kuwait in '90s, which triggered the USA to launch cruise missles and enforce no-fly-zones in the region. Iraq's gassing of its northern Kurdish community, bad intel on possible chemical/nuclear material in Iraq and anger over 2001-9-11 was what made USA invade Iraq for regime change. I may not be accurate on dates and I am not American, but this is my rough picture of the sequence of events.

    • Zach Good
      Zach Good 2 months ago +4

      @AmooToma Unfortunately, we're never really going to know the true reason why Bush and Cheney pushed to invade Iraq, but it likely had to do with personal enrichment. The main premise for the Iraq War was that Saddam Hussein was making weapons of mass destruction, but he wasn't. Cheney and his cronies made tons of money during the rebuilding of Iraq through their company, Halliburton. Oil may have been a factor, but there's no smoking gun evidence to demonstrate it was a factor.

    • AmooToma
      AmooToma 2 months ago

      I’m pretty young so sorry if I’m wrong but isn’t the reason the US first invaded Iraq was for oil? And they used 9/11 as An excuse. Not fully sure but I think I heard about it once

    Bernie Sanders is the only person on that stage who has been right about war. he did not vote for the war in Iraq unlike Biden who comically took Dick Cheney words as gospel to go into Iraq. Warren voted for trump 3 of trumps military budgets the last three years we can’t trust what she says either.

He is not promoting Communisim or socialism! But He is for Humanitarinism! Alaskans whos been getting oil money up to $2000 per citizen for many years they have not turned into communist they have used the "so called handout money" wisely! lets put Humanity first then the rest of the problems will start solve itself!!
