Best reply to a question I've seen on this forum in quite a while.Quote: RonC
What are you looking for in a candidate? Do her positions fit what you are looking for better than her opponent's? You can make arguments for her getting your vote based on experience, her positions, etc., but first it helps to know what you want in a candidate.
I may break this off to a new thread if it gets a few more replies, but I think the most important part of voting is to know what the party intends to do if they get in office. And then vote for what's important to you. Because the candidates are each only one person, and they take their positions from the party platform.
Another way to see this election is on a referendum on the DNC position that we should have no choice, other than neoliberalism, mass incarceration, perpetual war, etc. "...
Rig... I appreciate you weighing in, but I don't understand what you said here. I don't know what the term neoliberalism means (new dog whistle maybe)? Mass incarceration and the private prison system (worth 10s of billions to the contractors) is largely Republican legislation and lobbying. Perpetual war is Republican Hawks and the defense industry, also mostly Republican controlled. So how are you throwing that stuff at the Dems?
The Trump International Hotel in Ireland applied for a permit to build a seawall on its golf course to prevent erosion. Politico reports the permit application included an environmental impact statement that explicitly said the wall would need to be built to combat “global warming and its effects.” The golf course is located at Trump International Golf Links & Hotel Ireland, in County Clare.
Trump's achiellies heal might be his Tax returns.
