Earlier today, ANOTHER Democrat has announced his candidacy.

Please welcome Montana Governor Steve Bullock to the fray.

Like the rest of the democrat contenders, Steve is running on the tried-and-true "Crush Trump!" platform!

"We need to defeat Donald Trump in 2020 and defeat the corrupt system that let's campaign money drown out the people's voice, so we can finally make good on the promise of a fair shot for everyone...
It sounds like he wants to take the electoral process away from TwoParty control.

Libertarians are with him on that one. He should look around for a libertarian running mate...

These are interesting times, and the 2020 elections will be important.

...And they keep on coming!!

NYC Mayor Bill de Blasio has entered the race. 

Now that Biden has soared to top, many pundits are questioning de Blasio's poor timing.

Even de Blasio's wife Chirlane McCray, joked:    "The timing is not exactly right."  Grin   Grin

A Quinnipiac University poll found that three-quarters of New York City voters don't want the mayor to run for president.

No matter.   Twenty one of the two dozen Democrat candidates have less than a 1% chance of getting the DNC nomination.

Right now, "Creepy uncle" Joe Biden far outpaces the rest.  Bernie is a distant second and Pocahontas trailing way behind.

Hopefully, many more Democtrats will enter the race.  A dozen more would be great.  The debates should be hilarious.

I doubt that. 

They are serious about beating The Donald by running Creepy Uncle Joe. 

If they pick some California wackadoodle like Kamala Harris or ding-a-ling Eric Swalwell then yes, they have probably made a deal with The Donald.

What they are serious about is controlling the government.

Yes - they are envisioning a socialist movement to radically change the way America thinks and works.

To some degree, it is working.

This morning, I saw a show on FOX Business titled "CAPITALISM vs SOCIALISM".

Lou Dobbs, Charles Payne, and Herman Cain debated a panel of devoted, well-prepped socialists in a Town Hall type discussion.

The socialist argued that government should provide free School,  free housing, free medical care, - after all - these things are 'basic human rights'.

The audience agreed.  So there is a very real shift towards socialism in this country.

Trump is doing what he can to fend off socialism, but socialism is quickly gaining in popularity.

Now, there are many Americans who want the government to pay for free School,  free housing, and free medical care.

If income taxes could be doubled, that would really help the government provide these 'free' things.

But then there's UBI, which costs even more. So income taxes would probably need to be tripled.

Those poor taxpayers!  I feel so sorry for them.  They always get stuck with the bill.   I know - I used to be one!!    Grin    Grin

SkyChief, Alexandria "The Great" Ocasio-Cortez won't be at least 35 years of age to be electable in Year two thousand and twenty; I'm sure I've read that the Constitution of the United States requires that the Vice President have the same qualifications as the President; Alexandria "The Great" Ocasio-Cortez could be Speaker of the House of Representatives, and she would be way more beneficial as Speaker of the House of Representatives than "nincompoop" Nancy Pelosi.

You admire Ocasio-Cortez, or are you being sarcastic?   It's hard to tell in text. . . .

I think Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez does have much spirit and that's why I respect her as an elected Representative.  At least she's not afraid to explain to and rally the public about D.C. insiders' legislations.  But her strategy for obligatory investments for USA Treasury could use some fine tuning, though.
