    The GND would be outlandishly comical . . . if only there weren't so many idiots out there who eagerly lap up anything people like AOC, Sanders and Warren say or do. The left has gone full-on socialist and there's no stopping that train, I fear. We'll hold it off for awhile, but ambition and self-determination are giving way to generations of voters who think they shouldn't have to lift a finger to have everything they want and to be able to live a care-free life at everyone else's expense (especially those eveil rich people).

    This country is going the way of CA and NY and once that scale tips competely, it's going to be a disaster.

    You're welcome.

    I like the last sentence -
    eventually everyone quits
    .

    Under true socialism/communism there is no point in working hard or inventing new things because the state will steal the products of your labors and gift them to some worthless trash, after the state takes its cut for initiating and managing the thievery.

    Under true socialism/communism "quitting" is declared a crime against the people and "quitters" are executed or exiled to the gulags.
    Modern liberalism is based on the idea that reality is obligated to conform to one's beliefs because; "I have the right to believe whatever I want".

    "Everything the State says is a lie, and everything it has it has stolen.
    -Friedrich Nietzsche

    Hickenlooper will run for president, but realistically he's probably going to be aiming for an appointed position like Secretary of State.

    AOC is a thorn in the side of the establishment dems like Pelosi, but it doesn't matter because the old line establishment dems will probably not have control of the party for more than a decade at most. On top of that, she's got plenty of funding and, more importantly the media is behind her, especially the Young Turks/Buzzfeed/Vice/Vox/Slate types.

    To make things even more worrisome, the fact that she's an imbecile with a 430 credit score, a lukewarm IQ, two apartment evictions, and no sense of responsibility doesn't matter because the people who voted her into office are exactly like her and see these things as a point of similarity.

    She may be an idiot, but the machine behind her is not, and they, and the press, will continue to give her a pass on her moronic foibles as "oh, look, she's not an experienced politician, so of course she's going to have gaffes, it's no biggie."

    In short, "she's an idiot just like me" is the new "he's a candidate I could sit down with for a beer."

    If there's nothing wrong with having to show an ID to buy a gun, there's nothing wrong with having to show an ID to vote.

    Adherents need a suave nickname, kind of like "Tea Baggers". I'm thinking "Green Blumps". Or is it Blumpers. I forget how that works.
