If I had to pick a politician who I think can actually make a difference, and knows what he wants and how to get it I'd be inclined to choose Richard Ojeda.

He seems to enjoy bucking the system, and genuinely cares about the issues he fights for. He's a military man through and through, so I think he can disrupt the current GOP stranglehold on our armed forces. He is a true populist with more moderate views, and a fervent anti-lobbyist who is big on holding our government accountable.

As it stands now, there is no true democracy, and equity is an illusion. I've never before advocated for a president who I believe has the ability or intention of fixing this mess. The only reason I'm so passionate about Trump is because I fear that the damage that can be, and has been, inflicted by his policies and derangement have the potential to be catastrophic.

I've always thought it was kinda cliche when people said that they fear for their children, but I really am worried about the future for my kids. Maybe my slightly nihilistic nature is wrongly affecting them, but I'm starting to sow seeds to make them think seriously about not having children (they're young adults now). As much as I'd love to have grand children to spoil some day, it seems more and more like a selfish drive. I'm not blaming Trump for this, but he has exposed a dark underbelly that has left me even more shook than before.

Zeous icon NEW: Disagree with this: "she doesn't lie everytime she opens her mouth, she speaks coherently the majority of the time". She is an attractive, charismatic, young woman. She's similar to Trump, just from a different vantage point.

480ute icon NEW: Are you saying she lies everytime and isn't generally coherent, especially when compared with Trump (as I did)?

Zeous icon NEW: I don't know if she is aware that she says factually incorrect things or generally believes everything she says. She probably sounds good to those who agree with her though, just like Trump's fans.

Zeous icon NEW: I agree with what Cuban said as well, for the record. United we stand, divided we fall.

o NEW: I don't think anyone is dividing us intentionally. I think it's worse, a system that we have created and allowed to flourish. There is no cabal.
