What are some things you wish Democratics candidate would say?

I'll start:

Transwomen shouldn't complete in athletics against real women.

Sanctuary cities are a terrible idea.

I'm against reparations.

R1, I think there are a lot of people who would vote for a Democrat who said these things. It would be a huge relief to see a candidate with some sense who isn't pandering to the crazies on the left.

I do not support Reparations. We should concentrate on minority owned businesses, education, and affordable housing.

R21 who is Ivor? I know it’s an old British name, particularly popular in Wales but which Ivor are you talking to? Ivor Novello?

They are only stoning Muslin gays in Brunei. So we can’t send Andy Cohen there. He’ll just broadcast from there. Then we’ll be stuck with Real Haremwives of Brunei.

The Transgender Issue will ensure Trump wins.

School girls walk out in Nebraska over being forced to share bathrooms with boys. Court cases brought by girls about bathrooms are supported by both radical feminists groups and Christian groups. In fact, feminists and lesbians ally with the Far Right to preserve the rights of women and parents.

Liberal white parents in Arlington, Virginia and Latino parents in Santa Ana, California protest transgender indoctrination in grade schools.

The marathons of at least five major cities are going to allow transgender "women" to run as women no questions asked, in at least some cases, such as the Boston Marathon, the transgender "women" will take the places of women.

The Olympics are going to allow transgender "women" to compete as women - that will Peak Trans a huge portion of the globe, just a few months before the US election.

And the Democrats are pushing the Equality Act, which will destroy the rights of women, parents and gays, and open every single female space to men who self-identify as women.

“We should be giving people who DON’T have children financial incentives, not the other way around.”

“Abortion and birth control should be free and legal. Costly fertility treatments should be illegal or, at least, not covered under health insurance plans. Controlling overpopulation will do more to help the environment than banning all the plastic bags/plastic straws in the world.”

Legal immigration only. Stronger more effective punishment for criminals. Free college education with 3.0 or higher. Homeless panhandlers moved out of city limits.

I wish they would tell us why they are running, and what about their platform sets them apart from the other Democratic candidates. When every one of them lines up behind the same policies and talking points (Green New Deal, Medicare For All, reparations), this whole process becomes a clusterfuck. We get it, you hate Trump, but why Harris and not Sanders? Why Booker and not Warren? Bonus points if you can do it without negative campaigning. You can criticize a policy without criticizing the person.

For instance, Yang has campaigned on UBI, and whatever your thought on the policy, it at least sets him apart from the pack.

Another example, Schultz (although if he runs it won't be as a Democrat) has said he's for a national "catastrophic care" insurance coverage to prevent citizens from going bankrupt when medical costs are too high. But not Medicare For All. Again, something that clearly differentiates him from the others.

Or Warren's proposed policy to break up large tech.

Let us know what your ideas and beliefs are instead of just attaching your name in agreement to all the other policies being floated.

OP's phrasing reeks of foreign troll.

by Anonymousreply 54Last Tuesday at 4:30 AM

OP, if you truly believe transwomen not being allowed to compete against cis women is in the top 1000 of the subjects that any politician (democrat or republican) should address then you are completely divorced from reality and should be institutionalized for your own good.

by Anonymousreply 55Last Tuesday at 4:37 AM

The democrats need to articulate. They need firm positions that they can not only defend but sell. The "take more from the uppers and provide for the lowers" message doesn't sell in this country. R's see tons of poor and disfunctional low lifes all around them, and taking from the tidy to give more to the mess doesn't sparkle. The D's need a sellable message.

by Anonymousreply 57Last Tuesday at 8:20 AM

Not sure why most of you haven't figured this out, but OP is listing right wing talking points and doing that old troll trick of saying he wants a Democrat to act like a Republican.

Then when real Dems disagree with him in the comments, he calls THEM Republicans.

This has been a troll tactic since the old teaparty days. Are you really not familiar with it?

I love you DLers but you need to fucking punch and delete these trolls.

by Anonymousreply 58Last Tuesday at 8:27 AM

R36 listed "Stronger more effective punishment for criminals." We already imprison more of our population than most other countries in the world. We give prison terms for many nonviolent offenses and run some supermax prisons that appear designed to drive the inmates insane.

WTF do you want us to do? Floggings? Public executions in the town square? Keel hauling? More severe punishment is not needed. Other countries have more humane systems that result in lower recidivism rates - we should follow their lead. (Our taxes would be lower without our current emphasis on vengeance over efficacy so this is a moral and economic issue.)

I do agree with OP's 3 points, though like many other democrats outside the progressive echo chamber.
