Hello Again..

Well I'm not brand new, but it's a been awhile. Got a Happy Birthday from Political Chat and thought I'd say thank-you -- since a been a couple years since I've been here.

That was a very nice touch. And --- I kinda miss y'all.. At least the ones who were here a couple years ago.

Seems like the general public discussion is pretty intense right now. Not looking for "headline" discussion. More of the "long view" of where the discussions will be when all the shouting is over..

It's just feature of the software, we all get 'em.

The longview? It'll be President Clinton next January and Donito Trumpolini will still be sending angry tweets while ensconced in Trump Towers deciding on his next trophy wife.

.......... and I thought I was special..

You are sticking out your neck a bit here. Most folks think this is a 50/50 chance type of thing. I have no use for either re-tred power whore and will be spending the summer working to get folks from both disappointed parties to consider Gary Johnson.. Could be interesting !!!!

I'm open to advice on "working out".. Does having opinions, principles and years of message boarding hurt my chances of survival?

I haven't got one for years.

I'm good with almost anyone that isn't Trump, a teapublican,ok Jesus weasel, or a Libertarian.
Gary Johnson is a Libertarian, essentially water carriers for plutocrats.

A realistic appraisal...50/50.

I believe the Democrats made a big mistake in the early anointing of the money-grubbing Clinton, and the Republicans are pissed with their leaders.

It's more a matter of attitude than anything, I'd say.

It's an opportunity to perform for the Lib Party this year. To quit the ideology fights and focus on the reality of where we are as a nation. And it's like getting the ball on 40 yard line to have all those #nevertrump #neverhilliary folks out there.

In reality, (and Gary Johnson said this in the Lib debates) -- we support about 50% of what Bernie stands for.. We are Dems with fiscal sanity and Reps without all the moral judgments. Good place to be this year... We haven't changed -- the people have realized that the parties have become the tyrants that we were warned about..
