She also just tweeted her concerns about Agenda 21, aligning herself with the extreme right-wing John Birch lunatic fringe.
Come on. If she tweeted out something about the gold standard or black helicopters or sovereign citizens, would you think she was placing herself in opposition to the right-wing fringe?
read about UN agenda 21-this is the real stuff that ALL campaigns should be discussing.
She wasn't trying to raise awareness of the extreme right fringe and its impact on our culture, politics, etc. She wants people to think Agenda 21 is real, validating the Birchers. Anyway, Jill Stein has this nomination wrapped up and is worth talking about, unlike Agenda 21 or a stunt campaign by someone prone to delusional thinking.
I'm a fan of anyone with the common sense to point out how insane our drug laws are, but I think Gary Johnson has a much more impressive resume as a politician if drug law is an issue of chief concern for you.
Proposing to forgive all existing student loan debt is pretty much a joke.
Which makes for a President Romney, if memory serves.
From her own website: Obama and the UN: Agenda 21 Revisited linking to conspiracy theory pages.
You can pretend that the tweet was ambiguous, but it wasn't even close. The are only two types of people who would ever bring up Agenda 21. The certifiable and those of us worried about the impact on the far-right, especially at the local level and especially in the South where this thinking is shockingly strong. Roseanne is pretty clearly not in the second category.
It would be, if the Dems weren't so convinced that they'd rather have the votes of people to the right who will never vote for them instead of the votes on the left.
Democracy is messy and has a lot of flaws. the way our Democracy works is really (sadly) that we vote for the least worst candidate. It is frustrating and maddening, but it is the only functional way to vote currently.
Do minorities deserve to have restricted voting privileges? Do gays not deserve marriage? Do the sick and injured not deserve help for their?
The public option had support of at least 80% of the Democrats in Congress. The fact that some conservative Democrats and all Republicans did not represent their electorate is less Obama's fault than Lieberman, Snowe, et al.
It's the green party! I laugh at them! And then I hate them when I remember how they fucked up the 2000 election and forced us into this alternate history timeline where everything's going to shit!
40-50% of eligible voters aren't going to vote at all, so it's already pretty clear ... Unless around 50% of the population are real Leftists, no Democrat is going to run on a Leftist platform
This is like the scene in Jason X, the Friday the 13th sequel set in space, where a doomed scientist chirps, "it's okay, he just wanted his machete back," seconds before it turns out that giving him his machete back does not resolve the issue.
Romney wants to become President. He does not want to institute positive health care reform.
If Elizabeth Warren were running for president, I wouldn't just be voting for her, I'd be organizing for her. Just listen to her speak .
because some folks out to the left of the mainstream have been grinding their teeth about how disappointed they are in Obama since before he even took office. It's incredibly tedious to listen to
Al Franken might prove a realistic Democratic candidate, or running mate, several years down the road, after the Republicans further trash the economy. I'd happily vote for Roseanne Barr on the marijuana issue right now though.
Reminder, comparing things to Nazis immediately undermines your argument,
How is refusing to vote strategically short-term and put in the effort for the long-term being moral or ethical?
