    I like the field. It is difficult though because many candidates have announced their support for many of the same policies that Sanders ran on in 2016.

    For me, I want more of a focus n the Policy of each individual. Some are better than others, and others tend to Hedge on something most people agree with.

    Her platform includes proposal for free public college, universal health care, Medicare for all, a green new deal and $10 billion per year for slavery reparations to be paid over the course of a decade.

    “I believe $100 billion given to a council to apply this money to economic projects and educational projects of renewal for that population is simply a debt to be paid,” Williamson said.

    Mike Gravel is in, and I'm intending to donate to him, so he can get on the stage.
    He by far has the most Progressive Policies of all the candidates so far.

    Here's his platform. Gotta say I like his ideas.

    hSen. Gravel’s platform is the most progressive of any Democratic candidate.

    I'm a very liberal Democrat.

    I want climate change addressed in an ambitious way.

    My other interests are healthcare, college tuition, a living wage, and fighting voter suppression.

    The most important thing we need to do in the 2020 election is vote Trump out of office!!!

    Every major Democratic candidate is terrible, some are just less terrible than others.

    Bernie is probably the best but will still vote with the right if there's a big consensus on the issue. Plus there's little to no point in having a social democrat as President when you have a GOP majority in the Senate and Supreme Court to veto every welfare project he proposes. So it's probably best he comes a close second this time and gets more people organised on the left than to win.

    Mike Gravel is 88 years old now. He would turn 90 by the 2020 elections. With advanced medicine and human knowledge of better nutrition, he can last a little longer.

    Mike Gravel was a US senator for 12 years but he is out of office for 38 years.

    But Mike Gravel is a very promising contender and has interesting ideas on the government policy.

    I'm loving that Elizabeth Warren found out how the Tax Prep Corporations were trying to screw us, along with help from Republicans AND Democrats.
    But she, Bernie, and Booker, and AOC are like NOPE! I appreciate this on all levels. This is how you fight back.

    Whether it's in the party or not.

    Elizabeth Warren is at odds with Richard Neal over a bill banning the government from offering free tax filing
    "Congress should be making it easier – and less expensive – for Americans to file their taxes."

    Well, there's always the hope that Democrats can take back the Senate or at least get a 50/50 split, in which case his (or whomever the President ends up being) Vice President will be the deciding vote. At any rate, having a social Democrat as President is far better than having a conservative under these circumstances because at least things wont get any worse! A social Democrat won't nominate any more conservative Justices. A social Democrat will veto any messed up legislation that somehow passes both houses of Congress.

    The balance of power will change if the Democrats win the 2020 United States Senate elections. Including the special election in Arizona, Republicans will be defending 22 seats in 2020, while the Democratic Party will be defending 12 seats. Most of the Republican seats scheduled for 2020 elections are in the red states.

    I hope Pete isn't being seen as someone who has two faces. I watched his Vice Interview and Wasn't impressed with him. Then I saw this article on Buzzfeed, so make of it what you will. I think he comes across as Progressive ( I think we need a new word now.)

    But this doesn't pose well.

    What Happened When Pete Buttigieg Tore Down Houses In Black And Latino South Bend
    "Everyone wants to find a villain," a South Bend politician said of Mayor Pete Buttigieg's housing program. "This is just how economic development happens."


    Pete may be more Centrist than I like, but I hope he gives more Policy specifics down the road. We need a concrete idea of where he wants to take us.

    Wayne Messam has a radical plan to solve the student loan crisis.

    I wonder if it is doable, achievable or workable?

    I know it's a very crowded field already, but is there anyone you'd still like to run in the Democratic or GOP primaries?
