    Obama's already laid the foundation of mistakes, we have another chance to not follow again. Shapes of bad directions, African't zoo immoralities, worsening racial-tensions, misuse of taxes and resources, and tank the DJI stock-market numbers.

    Poll from South Carolina Host says: "Actually has Biden's lead down, H-h-he's Still Leading, by 7 points in that state.". CBSN Host still hopeful about Biden's chances, by reassuring everyone that 'H-h-he's Still Leading though!!!!', 'By 7 points!!!!'. So don't panic everyone, because Joe's Still leading!!!!! DON"T PANIC!!!!!!!! Everything is OK!!!!

    Every last one of them the Democrats are liars and fakes. If they want to show support they would have been doing their jobs. All of them want to tax that working class and take their freedoms, rights to choose and put through big government Socialism. Not good for any workers.

    The Dem's are not doing it to show solidarity, wake up! The best way to show they were there for the people is to show up, show what work was done for them and how the policies put in have had positive effects for the people they have said they would represent. But since the Dem's have done nothing for their constitutes, (or anyone other then their own self serving interest), and the only policies they have is impeachment, division, and trying to derail anything the current administration puts forth, no matter who it would help, they would be destroyed just showing up. Anyone who has seen the Democrat debate among themselves show what an utter disaster and disappointment the whole traitorous party has become. Can they claim to be liberal anymore, not many if any. Sad very sad.

    The food service workers on strike can't get benefits because so many illegal immigrants are willing to work for low wages under the table. This is the world the democrats are creating.

    Trump could be beaten in 2020 but not by any of the Democratic candidates. Impeachment looks really flimsy. Democrats aren't attracting any swing voters. Swing voters decide elections. The base is not enough. We're heading for four more years.

    Please Vote Andrew Yang for 2020 President! He plans to make large Corporations such as Amazon (who makes over billions in profit) pay taxes since they paid $0. Companies like Amazon puts markets out of business, increases unemployment, and leaves the middle class to pay the taxes for the country.
