Justice Democrats (US Politics)
Seems like a reasonable centrist platform with the sensible approach of working to re-balance the existing system rather than getting a new party going from scratch.

A few tweaks:
- For trade, the focus should not be on the individual deals (e.g. NAFTA and TPP) but on the international Leviathan for trade i.e. ISDS. But there doesn't seem to be the same insularity that concerned me about Bernie's platform (see Mercantilism).
- Similarly, the counterweight to corporations is consumers (shareholders are influenced by their profits) ... I'd like to see something about encouraging international Consumer Unions (e.g. BankExit) to institutionalise ethical consumerism.
-The gun policy seems too 'blanket' by ignoring the different social structures relating to population density.

Other than that, it's a decent centrist stance that taps into highly popular (rather than populist) opinions across the US.

Which of you are going to step up and run for office?

My 22 yo son is quite political. I could probably get him to run on the 420 platform in Maryland. I'll show him the video.

I dunno man. My gut tells me it's gonna weasel towards money once more, and we get the same thing.




But maybe that's the deal. Get new young people to kill the old party from the inside. Won't be the same party anyways.

I'd be more likely to expect to see them run Hillary again in 2020.......

Par the course, and all that....

Do you really think they're that clueless? Consider

I'm surprised. I'd have thought that you'd like the part about slapping the authoritarian-left regarding denying freedom of speech on campuses.

I liked that bit.

Yes

I only watched about 15 minutes. I couldn't handle all the talk about taking my money.

We only want the money that you obtained by defrauding the US people during the banking crisis that you've got stashed away in your Cayman Islands accounts.

Oh! And that second billion of yours after you die.

You're worth billions of dollars and keep your money in off shore accounts to avoid paying taxes?


But as if to knock me down, reality came around
And without so much as a mere touch, cut me into little pieces
