The one thing politicians on both sides of the aisle seem to forget is regardless of party they are there to represent ALL of their constituents and tend to not be mindful that a win by a handful of percentage points does not constitute a mandate.  The vast majority of elections seem to be won with a very small margin.

Respect everyone, yes, but do not draw battle lines based on identity.  That goes nowhere good.

Yes. That is my point. I do not believe that Identity Politics will win the 2020 election for Democrats. The idea of Identity Politics is too limited for the big picture of the total American nation.

Ok, so I didn't want to spend too much time on this cuz I already know pretty much how my neighbors feel about AOC and I didn't want to stir the pot. But this minidoc is so precisely accurate that I am compelled to share. I don't know who this narrator is, but it doesn't matter to me cuz I had already acquired on my own 98% of the same info. I DO think that Cenk is still very much at the base of the JusDems's power, and do not buy the BS that he (and Kyle Kulinski) quit--just days before the 2018 election filing period began because of past misogyny statements. And I know Cenk has denounced his past denial of the Armenian Genocide and hired Ana Kasparian, but I think that's for show. You can tell I don't trust TYTs.

The narrator gets a little exuberant about Saikat's money transfer scheme. I was a bit lukewarm about it myself, but since Saikat is so creative, I won't put anything past him.

It is not conspiracy theory. (I am softer on her as the "actress" as she does have experience with Bernie and Kennedy and Marxist ideology. I also think Riley Roberts should get credit for marketing her.) I honestly came to the same conclusions on my own.

Enjoy.

Doesn't everyone have mentors and people behind the scenes working for them? Do any politicians work in a quiet room with a solitary desk?


I'm not going to get into a back and forth but most of the things she says I want to see happen. Sorry but it's just a nothing video and I am not happy with the country right now.

Line by line, everything this guy says is so provably wrong that  I just can't believe anyone would give it credence.

THIS WAS NOT "RANDOM" POLITICAL COMMENTARY. I am reposting below as I am trying to help decipher when AOC's in the area, when she makes public appearances & how to attend them, and to what issues her office responds to. All concerns previously expressed on this forum.

I removed my reference to a certain clip so as not to upset some folks.

This was a Town Hall, tonight in Corona. https://www.c-span.org/video/?c4820911/representative-alexandria-ocasio-cortez-town-hall-meeting-paul-eliason

Still don't know how one finds when/where these THs are going to happen.

EDIT to ADD: AOC posted an announcement 1 hour prior to the event, did not specify location, but did advise that the TH was full. I suspect now that she has been majorly trolled, things will get even tighter.

she has already won 2020, judging by the amount of fear and consternation she's generated among the 19 percent that voted against her last time, and the amount of support she's generated among the majority.

I'd bet $5 that Pelosi herself would vote her out if she could vote in this district.

I'm pretty certain AOC is one and done.  If you listen to her interviews  she is not impressive at all but I do give her a lot of credit for winning her election.

She largely ran on the basis of the part of the district that's in the Bronx that was mostly ignored by Crowley over the years.  I guess it depends on whether the buyers' remorse in the Bronx is greater than the satisfaction in Jackson Heights.

the people who know Crowley best -- Woodside and Sunnyside -- went for AOC by a huge margin.

Is there satisfaction in JH?
