The DNC apparently tried passing a resolution that would require Sanders and King (the other independent in the senate) to be be democrats in 2018. It was an interesting move..almost seems like they're trying to gear up (or are just afraid and want the D in front of his name) for Bernie being the front-runner in 2020.

Mark Cuban would run for president as a Republican in 2020

 

https://www.msn.com/...ID=ansmsnnews11

 

Introduction:

 

Billionaire Mark Cuban thinks he could be the next President Trump, and says he could use the commander-in-chief's own party to do it.

 

The Dallas Mavericks owner and reality show personality told Fox News Sunday night that if he runs for the White House he would do so as a Republican.

"I think there's a place for somebody who's socially a centrist but I'm very fiscally conservative," he said.

 

Cuban, who has evolved into a frequent critic of his fellow billionaire now in Washington, confirmed that he is looking into the idea of going into politics, and said that the chance he does so is about a four out of 10.

 

"We're going into an era where people want someone who comes up with solutions. I think we're going into a time where you need somebody who can connect to people and relate to people at a base level and appreciate what they're going through - and I think I qualify on each of those."

I guess he's a republican in the same way Trump was a republican before he got involved in politics, i.e. he may have funded some republicans (and probably some democrats) at some point, but has mostly not followed any specific party line. Don't know much about him though. 

 

I would imagine most billionaires who enter politics would do so as Republicans, as that's the party that is more likely to let them lower taxes on themselves and their friends.

Here's an interesting fact about a younger Trump.

 

Trump was a registered Democrat from August 2001 through September 2009.

Funny how he was a Democrat during the 8 years a Republican was president and then a Republican during the 8 years a Democrat was president.

Yeah, it's as if he is compelled to assume the role of being the opposite or antagonist regardless of the overarching issue at hand - I guess it's part of his persona. No wonder he's been clashing with anybody he encounters.

 

There's actually a psychology-profiling diagnosis for this type of personality - High Conflict Personality.

I guess Sessions has been just too busy on issues such as ending local control of marijuana use and making sure needed farm workers get deported to give a damn about protecting the integrity of our electoral system.

 

Sessions Admits He Has “Not Followed Through” on Pledge to Protect Elections From Russian Meddling

 

http://www.motherjon...ssian-meddling/

 

Introduction:

 

 

 

(Mother Jones) Attorney General Jeff Sessions said Tuesday that he has “not followed through” on a vow to review how the United States can protect its elections from future Russian interference. In a congressional hearing in which he was repeatedly pressed on his claims that he did not recall details of his own contacts with Russian officials and those of other Trump campaign surrogates, Sessions’ most striking lapse may have been his inability to identify any specific actions he and the Justice Department have taken to stop the Russians or other states from meddling in elections next year and beyond.

 

More than three hours into Sessions’ testimony before the House Judiciary Committee, Rep. Brad Schneider (D-Ill.) pointed out that Sessions had told Sen. Ben Sasse (R-Neb.) at an October 18 Senate hearing that protecting election integrity required “a real review” of how the department can help police election infrastructure. But, Schneider noted, Sessions had said earlier in Tuesday’s hearing that no review is taking place. “Specifically what steps have you taken to protect our elections next year?” Schneider asked.

 

“You raise a good point,” Sessions said. “I have not followed through to see where we are on that, and I will personally take action to do so.” Sessions said that the department is busy on various agenda items, but he added, “This one is important. And I acknowledge that. But I should be able to give you better information today than I am.”

 

Sessions’ response will do nothing to alleviate widespread concerns that the Trump administration does not take Russian efforts to interfere in US elections seriously. President Donald Trump has refused to accept to the US intelligence agencies’ consensus view that the Russians interfered in the 2016 election to help him prevail over Hillary Clinton. This weekend, during a trip to Asia, Trump told reporters he believed Russian President Vladimir Putin’s denials that Russia meddled in the election, while disputing the US intelligence findings. (Trump later sought to clarify his remarks, saying on Saturday, “I’m with our agencies, especially as currently constituted with their leadership.”)

so just in the united states? which leads to a reduction of the human population/? and since more people are opting out of child care, it's going to be a slow road to recovery.

I'm surprised this slipped me by for so long, but apparently Zoltan Istvan is running for president in 2020 as a libertarian. I never knew he was a libertarian. He also has the least terrible idea I've seen for a basic income.

 

Leasing out federal land could provide free money for all Americans

 

The US government owns over $150 trillion of federal land and resources. Most of it is unused and sitting idle. If you divide $150 trillion by America's 325 million citizens, you get nearly a half-million dollars per person.

And as usual the nobody cares about blatant disregard for the integrity of this representative democracy. I still don't think there's solid proof of Russian hacking, but that doesn't change that precautions should still be taken as well as follow-up actions by the justice department. Beyond that some less violating forms of meddling are apparent.

 

This is the type of thing that makes the United States a flawed democracy.
