Platitudes Be Damned – The 2020 Election Is About ISSUES

Platitudes Be Damned – The 2020 Election Is About ISSUES



In the coming days, we're going to see Democratic
candidates for president dropping like flies. The first rounds of debates are over. We've seen who has risen to the top and who
has fallen off the map. And again, we're going to see a lot of campaigns
end within the next few days here. But here's what I liked so far about this
entire process that really began in earnest this past January and it is the candidates
who have nothing to offer but platitudes and you know, some cliched talking points, they're
not doing well. And that includes Joe Biden, Joe Biden, when
he finally announced after a few months of teasing along with Beto O'Rourke who did the
same thing. They didn't have plans, they just had, well,
let's get back to normal. Oh, Republicans will start working with us
once Trump has gone, oh, we need to come together as a country and love I. Those are great and wonderful messages, right? You know, it's perfect for a hallmark card,
but unfortunately that's not what the country is anymore. And the candidates who have consistently been
rising in the polls with each and every passing pole are the ones who have been laying out
policy after policy plan after plan with detail after detail. And there's actually only two of them who
fit that bill, who have not only been laying out constant policies, but have also consistently
since the month of April been rising in every single poll. And those two people are Bernie Sanders and
Elizabeth Warren. And I know I've mentioned that before about
them rising in every poll, but that's why it's important because right now we can't
look at individual poll numbers and say, Oh, okay, this person's going to get it. No. Instead you have to look at trends after all. Uh, here's a little bit of history for you. On September 5th, 2015, Carly Fiorina was
actually at the top of the Republican polls. Carly Fiorina was winning in both Iowa and
New Hampshire in Sept on September 5th, 2015 when those polls were released, they thought
she was going to sweep those and then take it all. By September 30th of that same month, she
had dropped down to either third or fourth place. And then of course as we all know, stumbled
and never got back up. And the reason I point that out is because
individual polls don't mean anything this far out. Trends on the other hand who is consistently
rising, that does matter and that means everything. And it's not a coincidence that the only two
people who are consistently rising instead of ups and downs and further downs and a little
up and down is because they're the two putting out the most detailed and elaborate policies
to help American citizens. And I know there's a lot of people on the
left who are attacking Elizabeth Warren now, which I feel a lot of it is way out of line. Yes, she has been wishy washy on Medicare
for all and that is cause for concern. Even I, and not happy about that. Just as I'm not happy with Bernie Sanders
vote to give the gun industry immunity from lawsuits, that's a big black mark on his record. Neither of them are perfect, but they're both
leaps and bounds better than everybody else running for president on the democratic side,
and I don't buy into the weird argument that some on the left, they're trying to make that
Elizabeth Warren is somehow some kind of secret, secret corporatist establishment type. Literally nothing in the woman's history that
would suggest that she's going to be a corporatist or somehow be soft on Wall Street. That's insane. If you're out there making that argument,
you shouldn't be allowed to make arguments anymore because it's stupid. But back to my original point, which I have
somehow veered way far off from their rising because they're talking about issues. They're rising because they have plans and
they have ideas. Hopefully when all of a sudden done, when
we hit that 12th democratic debate, hopefully at that point there's only two people left
on the stage. Bernie Sanders and Elizabeth Warren, they
both have some incredible strengths. They both have a couple of the weaknesses
and yeah, I do agree. I think Elizabeth Warren has more weaknesses
than Bernie. Bernie is the person to beat right now. And polls also show Bernie's the person to
beat Trump. So if you want to talk electability somebody
with ideas and plans, somebody who actually attracts the young generation. Bernie checks all those boxes. Elizabeth Warren checks most of them, but
no other candidates currently running. Even come close to checking as many of those
boxes as both Bernie and Elizabeth Warren. And it's because they're out there talking
about issues and not delivering stupid talk in the form of platitudes to try to make us
all feel happy. That's not what this election is about. And as long as Democrats focus on the issues
beating Trump, he's going to be a piece of cake. But you know which candidates to choose if
you want to go the issue policy beating Trump route.

  1. repub sanders needs to drop off and let a real dem get closer to the ticket, not sure how people don't think that biden wont be the elect, he jumped in and im sure he will be the one when all is said and done

  2. Yes,yes,yes……I really wanted the two of them in 2016…Hopefully, one will be President, the other Vice in 2020…I'm with you…you are always "right on"!!!!!!!!

  3. I still remember Warren saying that if she's the nominee than she would start taking corporate cash. Not saying she's a corporatist but its just a red flag that raises concern, along with a few more inconsistentcies.

  4. Bernie is awesome and he's been a consistent progressive for decades. He still has a D- rating from the NRA.

    Warren hasn't fully supported Medicare for all and she is willing to take corporate money in the general, which are deal breakers for me.

  5. I think Joe Biden, like Hillary, feels he is the next heir-apparent to assume the Democrat candidacy to the on-coming federal election. Like Hillary, he seems to want to sleep-walk into the presidency. Joe is a good guy and so much better than Trump but someone is needed to fire up the base and he's just not there.

  6. I thought i heard circus music dearing the debates. With all these clowns running i also thought i heard the song tell me lies playing also.

  7. Let's hear some more articles on Mitch McConnell. People need to be more aware of how much of a dirt bag he is. I do NOT want to see him in office for another six years.

  8. Hahahaha it doesn't matter Baldie Farron. Did you watch the debates? None of these Democrat clowns can beat Trump 🙂

  9. but according to the sitting president, issues are BORING!

    trump is such an a-hole (and not an admirable like some a-holes but as terrible as an a-hole can be)

  10. Bernie the communist senders, has the best chance of winning against God emperor, Farton said. If truly Farton believes that he is the smartest of the dumbest.

  11. I'm not voting for no one if they doesn't support reperations for the ADOS (American Descendants Of Slavery)I don't care if Donald J Trump win the election or not. The Democratic party have failed Black Americans once again! ☹️☹️☹️☹️

  12. No one on that stage didn't talk about reperations for ADOS (American Descendants Of Slavery) or the concerns of black people in this country. Liberal medias like, Ring of fire TV, TYT are trying to avoid this Extremely important subject. I Thank God for Jesse Dollemore talking about that subject many times. Ring Of Fire please do a story about Reperations for the ADOS if you want to talk about important issues. Because right now everyone is failing with the black Voters, Democrats core supporters. No one is talking about the, ADOS Movements around this country that's growing very big by the day! The Democratic party's will lose most of the black votes if they don't do anything about the subject concerning reperations for the ADOS…

  13. Meanwhile, mainstream media keeps going on about a candidate’s electability (which has nothing to do with policies). Morning Joe and Chuck Todd are the worst.

  14. Told ya berine the one that can beat Trump not Biden Biden not the one to beat Trump if Biden gets nomited we will lose in 2020 my friend Biden the one to beat Trump but I disagree my friend is wrong I said Bernie the one that could beat Trump I was dead on 🔥 not Biden will be another Hilary if notmatied

  15. I'm amazed that the US puts itself through this process ever two years or so, how anyone can sustain interest in an electoral process for some 18 months before the actual election. Here the process is around 100 days from the dissolution of the old & the seating of the new Parliament & I find that exhausting. Hopefully if Bernie or less optimally Elizabeth is elected & enjoy a cooperative Congress what comes first of the big two Climate or Medicare especially since the latter will face massive opposition & legal challenges from powerful & politically connected vested interests let alone trying to reverse & relieve the massive damage done by Donald & his cronies in every sphere of American society.

  16. My prediction:

    It will come down to:
    Elizabeth Warren
    Julian Castro
    Tulsi Gabbard
    Bill De Blasio
    Bernie Sanders
    Kamala Harris
    Pete Buttigieg

    After it comes down to those candidates the two that will be left will be either Bernie Sanders vs Kamala Harris OR Bernie Sanders vs Elizabeth Warren.

    Bernie will be the nominee and pick Nina Turner as his VP. Bernie will have Tulsi be either the Secretary of State or Secretary of Defense.

    I also hope Bernie has people like Warren, Marianne Williamson, Mike Gravel, Cornel West in his cabinet.

    Oh and Bernie and Nina will have two terms.

    After that, Nina Turner will run for POTUS. She will pick either AOC or Ro Khanna for her VP and they will get two terms.

    Thoughts on that prediction?

  17. My biggest fear about Warren is that Trump would be able to successfully attack her. I hope she learned something from the DNA fiasco.

  18. I'm on the same page I want Bernie but I would be happy with Elizabeth to We need a serious change a Progressive One💪
