So, you are open to the idea of allowing Trump to change our form of government? I hate to tell you but that will go worse than the wall Mexico is paying for and the tariffs on China that are making us rich.

^This isn't Trump. This is / would be a movement by the states. Personally, I have my doubts that enough states will pass it to where it will have real effect, but still, it's state driven.

And this is now twice in five elections where the will of the majority has been subverted, perhaps illegally. Something has to change, otherwise, let's just make it official, give Trump the title of Emperor, rename ourselves "West Russia" and be done with it.

Of course! When you need some money, just PRINT MORE. DUH.

****

The previous record was set in 2011, when the U.S. was recuperating from the Great Recession.

In total, the U.S. spent $2.574 trillion, which marks an 8 percent increase over last year. The government also ran a $531 billion deficit from October through April. That’s a 38 percent increase over the $385 billion deficit during the same period last year.

The change was largely due to an increase in military spending, healthcare and interest on debt owed, said the Treasury.

*****

Good to see that the completely, totally, 100% non-partisan Tea Party is all over this:

I'm not convinced that Donald Trump suffices as proof that we need direct democracy. While we may have the technology available to allow for greater participation than the Athenians achieved, I seriously doubt that it will make people more engaged. A lot of stuff will still fly under the radar.

"In announcing his candidacy, de Blasio seeks to claim a role on the national stage that has eluded him as mayor of the biggest US city."

"observers said that even if de Blasio's candidacy doesn't catch fire, he'll be able to promote his policies and potentially angle for a job in a future Democratic administration. He is barred by term limits from running for mayor again."

Is this common for individuals to run for President knowing they have no chance, but just doing so to increase their profile?
(Hang on. I think that might have been the idea last time. But that individual ended up winning.)

Trump Faces A Much Harder Task To Win In 2020, Than His 2016 Win, Since Clinton Had The Lowest Public Approval Ratings For Her Personal Traits, Ever Seen With A Democratic Nominee


As a GOP strategist recently said, Trump's re-election fundamentals are not only quite weak for any President to be having, but Donald Trump is the ONLY President of the more than 3 quarters of a century of political polling, who since the day of his BEING ELECTED, has NEVER gotten up to a 50% public approval level in the Gallup Poll. (George Gallup established the Gallup Poll in 1935.)And BTW, many people have said that the Gallup Poll is slightly slanted toward FAVORING Republicans, while its biggest competitor, the Harris Poll, was slightly slanted toward FAVORING Democrats. And that claim about the Gallup Poll tends to be backed up by the fact that in many of our Presidential elections, the final Gallup Poll conducted before Election Day, often showed the GOP's Presidential candidate having a SLIGHTLY HIGHER SHARE of the POPULAR VOTE, than what the Republican actually ended up getting in the election. Anyway, it's sure QUITE POOR of a record for Mr Trump to HAVE SET, for him to HAVE BECOME the ONLY President, since political polling began, over 75 years ago, to have NEVER REACHED up to the 50% approval level, in Gallup's polling.

But a man like Ronald Reagan, whose personality was much MORE POSITIVE than Trump's, including having natural HUMAN WARMTH, which Donald WILL NEVER HAVE, would have been a President Reagan experiencing a 60+% Gallup Poll approval level, if while he was President, America's economy had been AS STRONG under Reagan, as the HOT economy of 2019, that STILL ISN'T managing to EVEN RAISE Trump's approval level up to just 50%, in the Gallup Poll.

And now the obviously QUITE STRONG appeal of Democrat Joe Biden, is really coming to the fore.

Fox News, Donald Trump's FAVORITE SOURCE of information, just released the results of it's latest poll, which should SCARE THE HELL out of Trump and his followers. Fox pollsters asked registered voters to choose between Donald Trump and Joe Biden as their preference of who should be elected President in 2020, and Mr Biden was the choice of 49% of the folks, while Mr Trump was only favored by 38% of those registered voters. And one thing we know about the basically Pro-Trump Fox News is that its pollsters made sure that Democratic voters were NOT OVERREPRESENTED in the questioning of registered voters.

That 11 point advantage for Joe Biden, over President Trump, that Fox News pollsters found, is a VERY POOR SHOWING for a current President.

And Mr Biden is simply DOMINATING the field of Democrats running to obtain the Democratic Party's nomination for President. Mr Biden sure looks like he shouldn't worry much about Bernie Sanders, who's in 2nd place (Well below Biden) because Sanders LITERALLY has NO CHANCE to become 2020's Democrat nominee, since the support Bernie gets from African-American Democrats is at a SMALL LEVEL, while Mr Biden is managing the IMPRESSIVE FEAT of attracting about 50% of the support of black Democrats, just by himself, against a crowded field of 20 other Dem candidates. That field also includes a black woman, Senator Kamala Harris. But Joe Biden is now such a force in the Democratic Party, that polling shows that he has about 5 TIMES the level of support from black Democrats that Senator Harris has.

Mr Biden is so dominant among the Democratic candidates competing for their party's nomination, that the few fellow Democrat candidates who are willing to attempt to mount attacks against him, are even afraid to say Biden's name in their attacks, though it's not hard to figure out who their target is, as those folks make their timid assaults against the man who they won't name.

People in the Trump White House, have told reporters that Joe Biden is the Democrat who worries Donald Trump the most. And Trump has GOOD REASONS for fearing to end up with Mr Biden as his 2020 opponent.

Mr Biden has always been well liked by blue collar folks, and has strong appeal to many people of the 3 critical states that determined the outcome of 2016's election.

Joe Biden's personality actually possesses such natural WARMTH, and just PLAIN LIKABILITY, while Donald Trump is SO LACKING in BOTH of those QUALITIES, that I almost feel sorry for Donald having to go up against Joe in 2020, which is looking more likely to be the 2020 MATCH-UP, with each passing day.

Back in May of 2015, today's STRONG BACKER of Trump, Republican Senator Lindsey Graham, said in a videotaped interview that Joe Biden is the most likable person that Senator Graham had ever met in his many years in politics. Also in that interview (which I've watched MULTIPLE times) Lindsey Graham said this "Anyone who can't admire who Joe Biden is, as a person, probably has some problem, and needs to do some serious self-evaluation." And then Senator Graham actually spoke these exact words: "Joe Biden is as good a man, as God ever created." WOW! If anybody ever spoke to a random crowd of Americans, at some event, like a major league, baseball game, telling the crowd of people "President Trump is as good a man as God ever created", the ENTIRE stadium would ERUPT into a STORM of LAUGHS & BOOS, because 6 in 10 Americans choose LIAR, if asked to name 1 word which gives a good description of Trump.

And IMO, the reason why Joe Biden is now so seriously overpowering his Democratic competition, with no other Democrat candidate making much headway, is because so many Americans simply feel quite comfortable with imagining the reins of power being passed on to a good guy, like Mr Biden.

Because a choice between a POSITIVE individual, like Joe Biden, who Senator Graham DESCRIBED as being as good a man as God ever created, vs. Americans choosing a NEGATIVE individual, such as Donald Trump, who Presidential historians, like Douglas Brinkley, of Rice University in Texas, has DESCRIBED as the MOST COMPULSIVE LIAR ever elected to the American Presidency, is a PRETTY DAMNED EASY CHOICE for people to make, especially for folks who want a person that's TRUSTWORTHY, which DEFINITELY REMOVES Trump from the PICTURE!

Because TRUER WORDS were never written, than the recent statement by English author, Nate White, saying "Donald Trump makes Nixon seem trustworthy, and George W seem smart." Yup, Donald certainly has a POOR combination of personal CHARACTER TRAITS, which anyone SHOULD be ASHAMED to have. So in 2020, most patriots who love our country, and know how to think, should find it to be an easy decision to cast their votes for the man who Senator Graham described, so America can kick aside, the DEEPLY UNETHICAL HUMAN GARBAGE, from New York , who's so DISGRACEFUL, that leaders of nations which are allied with America, are ASHAMED to have to occasionally share a stage with the UNETHICAL CREEP, who defrauded some of our fellow citizens (as well as American banks) out of many millions of dollars.

I see no evidence that the Mueller report did damage to Trump's standing among his supporters. It's like the pot calling the kettle black, as far as they are concerned, and though he may be an asshole, at least he's their asshole.

Barring catastrophe, the number one concern of the electorate will be the economy. Is it doing great, like Trump claims? Nope, but it is probably good enough to keep his approval rating from crashing. So, what's the Democratic game-plan there? Sure, you can hammer on all the promises he failed to deliver on, but what are the Dems actually proposing to do about it?

I think the most important thing for his opponents to grasp is that Trump's personal failings probably won't be the deciding factor. In that regard, it may alleviate your frustration, but if you want to win over people who don't already agree with you then it would be better to drop the name-calling.

^^ "6 in 10 Americans choose LIAR, if asked to name 1 word which gives a good description of Trump"

I'm not going to ask for a source as I assume that's just one of the 86% of statistics that are made up.

^^ Well, he wasn't mocked for his appearance by Pocahontas or Alfred E. Neuman. So there's that.

And he's the only one who wanders around saying that he's a young, vibrant man, which pretty much invites commentary.

Not to mention that every president is caricatured and mocked. You can view Obama as a witch doctor, or with a turban, or a hundred other things, with a simple google search.

"Em
And these comments illustrate EXACTLY why people are not being honest in polls about their intentions.
Just like Hillary's supporters, shouting at people and telling them how stupid they are is not how you convince them to vote for your chosen party

Laura Palmer->Em
But it's not as though the other side doesn't do that. Conservatives love telling people how wrong and stupid they are. It seems that conservatives love giving it, but cannot take it at all.

Les Grossman->Laura Palmer
Yes, just look at all the conservatives here abusing and shaming the left..."

^ From the comments.

"trump has >90% approval rating with republicans. this is not even worth an 'at least he's trying'. it is a monumental waste of time. this guy supported obama over mccain. he is socially liberal. he will probably make records for how poorly he fares."

(I commented earlier about the possible response of Trump supporters if he were to lose the election, so here's a suggestion)
"And still no real challenger to the great Trump. Wonder if the 2020 election will be cancelled and Trump' tenure simply extended by 4 years?"
LOL!

Excerpts from the article:

Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden declared Saturday that the Equality Act would be his top legislative priority, an effort to enshrine LGBTQ protections into the nation's labour and civil rights laws.

The former vice-president shared his hopes of signing the legislation as part of a keynote address to hundreds of activists at the Human Rights Campaign's annual Ohio gala. In a half-hour at the lectern, his remarks ranged from emotional tributes to his audience and their personal endurance to condemnations of FM45.

"It's wrong and it is immoral what they're doing," Biden said of the FM45 administration. Among other FM45 polices, he cited attempts to bar transgender troops in the U.S. military, allow individuals in the medical field to refuse to treat LGBTQ individuals, and allow homeless shelters to refuse transgender occupants.

^^^Welcome back, Flac!

A look at the voting patterns by age in the 2016 general and 2018 midterms, it's been clear for a while that the GOP is pretty unpopular among younger people. George Will, famous conservative commentator and former Republican explains why:

Voting trends from 2016 and 2018 show that the GOP is unpopular among younger voters. And now that the GOP has become the party of Trump, it really has become "the dumb party". Watch any interview with a Trump supporter at one of his stupid rallies and you'll see the sort of ignorance that should make every American deeply ashamed of how our system of education has short-changed millions of people in this country.

^I sure hope so! If the we should see an increase in voter turnout by young people:
In 2016, millennials voted at just about the I do think that more young people will get to the polls because I think they're beginning to realize if they don't elect better politicians (politicians who will look after the needs of younger adults), they could be stuck having to deal with some really serious issues a few decades down the line. Climate change. Opioids addiction. College costs. Environmental destruction.

If I were to hazard a guess, I would say that millennials will vote in even higher numbers in 2020 than they ever have before. There was a lot of complacency among the Democrats in 2016. I know quite a few people who didn't even bother to vote because they assumed Hillary would win. But in 2020, I think most people are expecting a really tight race, which should bring more young adults into the voting booths. And I think the importance of the issues will also help spur more young voters.

Macko69, I'd sure have to concur with George Will's contention that the GOP is unpopular among younger voters, as well as the idea that a majority of young people consider Republicans to be members of the dumb party. Here in Ohio, my wife has a 34 year old niece who works in a bar, has worked in a law office, and also makes trips to events popular with young people like these ComicCon conventions (if I have that name about right.) So that niece, Stephanie, associates with a large number of young people, from different backgrounds. And so, due to the fact that Fox News is so key to getting out, and promoting, the GOP's message, and certainly serves that function for Mr Trump, I asked Stephanie about what proportion of her friends she would estimate to be Fox News viewers. And she simply answered by saying, "Nobody I know, besides my Dad, watches Fox News, because Fox insults our intelligence!" Yup, Stephanie, and the wide range of young people who she socializes with, DEFINITELY consider the GOP to be the DUMB PARTY!

Excellent, Excellent point!! And BTW, while of course we all know that President Obama had a successful re-election campaign, NO ONE can identify any case of Barack Obama, as President, having EVER resorted to using name-calling against ANY politician who Mr Obama disagreed with. But Trump doesn't even restrict his name-calling to just using it to try to demean political figures, who Donald doesn't like. Because as we so recently saw, the President, less than 10 days ago, called the newest English Princess NASTY, & then, was careless enough to make a LYING DENIAL that he'd said that! Which, unfortunately for Donald, was soon followed by NPR, CNN, ABC, and other major American media outlets, having a field day, playing the recording that a British newspaper had made, of its interview with Trump, in which America's President is heard, VERY clearly, calling Meghan Markle "nasty".
Yup, I have no doubt that as we keep moving toward November 2020, Donald Trump's own lying & insulting mouth (and his absurd tweets) will simply continue to be the best advantage that a Democrat Presidential Nominee could hope for, in helping that Democrat find that there simply won't be enough Americans, on Election Day 2020, who desire to experience another 4 years of Trump's ugly nonsense, to enable Donald to get enough votes to even come close to matching a much greater number of Americans who will vote to end this gross & disgraceful Trump era!

And BTW, I hope that current Democratic front runner, Joe Biden, just keeps maintaining the pressure on Trump, by continually identifying many of Trump's false claims, and explaining exactly why they're false. And Biden, WITHOUT using any name-calling himself, such as calling Trump a crook, can simply conclude the remarks that he makes in speeches of that type, by stating something just like this "And folks, that's why we've certainly reached a time when it has become SO IMPORTANT that we bring back honesty & civility to public discourse in America!"

And if Biden keeps up the pressure on Trump, by repeatedly hitting Donald in that kind of civilized way, it's a very safe bet that Americans will witness Trump continually STRIKING BACK at Mr Biden, in a much LESS CIVILIZED way. But since most folks find Joe Biden to be such a positive & likable guy, Trump's attacks against Biden, as well as the name-calling that Donald just won't be able to resist using, will SERIOUSLY BACKFIRE against Trump!

"Joe Biden’s rationale is ... what, exactly? That it happens to be his turn?

Mr Biden really, really likes to remind voters that he was Barack Obama’s vice president. He often speaks of the Obama administration’s record as though it is his own, when everyone knows the American vice president doesn’t actually do all that much.[LOL!]

His pitch essentially boils down to: I was Obama’s vice president. You like Obama, and Obama likes me. Therefore you should vote for me."
[LOL!]

"The Democrats lost in 2016, at least in part, because voters perceived Hillary Clinton as a member of the so-called “establishment”, and saw Mr Trump as an outsider.

Well, Mr Biden is the walking definition of an insider. He has been in Washington for most of the last 50 years"

Donald Trump is fixated on Joe Biden. But is Biden actually a good candidate?
"Joe Biden’s rationale is ... what, exactly? That it happens to be his turn?

1) Is Joe Biden the perfect candidate? No.

2) Is there any such thing as "the perfect candidate"? Again, no.

3) Is he the first candidate to try and ride on coattails? No. Why shouldn't he.

4) Hillary's biggest problems were her unlikeability and her scandals. These are not issues Biden really has to worry about.

5) Trump is no longer an "outsider"; he, his daughter and son-in-law are now all fully esconsced withing The System.

6) "Trump The Outsider" was always a bullshit term; Trump is a gilded-age billionaire from NYC who -- BY HIS OWN ADMISSION -- rubbed shoulders with politicians and donated to them. Now, despite all the "Drain The Swamp" talk, he's given billions to CEOs and corporations while average people got crumbs.

7) His pitch essentially boils down to: I was Obama’s vice president. You like Obama, and Obama likes me. Therefore you should vote for me." Of course, Hillary did the same thing. Did it change the minds of those predisposed not to vote for her already? Nah. As I said previously, if people really gave a shit about issues, Elizabeth Warren would be in the top spot from the moment she announced.

Biden's biggest problem-- if he wins the nom-- is the progressive electorate. Either they're going to have to bend a little, or they're determined to die on Trump Mountain. He also -- and I've said this before -- almost certainly has to have a Black running mate, preferably a woman.

I think Biden's biggest problem, if he wins, will be the composition of the Congress. That is to say, if the Republicans maintain control of the Senate, and/or gain control of the House then none of the ideas, or ideals, you hoped to advance by electing Biden are going anywhere.

^Well that was going to be an issue with a Hillary win too. That's how it was for six years of Obama's presidency. Better than nothin!
