  1. My vote in November is only and only based on :
    HELSINKI.

  2. America is not a Trump casino!
    Remove Trump!
    Vote Blue 2020!!

    • @Jesse Raza My taxes have gone down.. I don’t any anyone in the 1% to confirm any further but if you recall Clinton was using the same tax breaks as Trump before he was ever in office.

    • @Jesse Raza I thought they called it progressive now? I recall they ran a poll and found that Americans actually don’t support socialism so just like Warren they had to find something else to call it.

    • @Jesse Raza BEST COMMENT EVER, THANK YOU 😎👍🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸💣💣💣💣💣💣 tick tock traitors

  3. Increase spending, cut taxes, break the economy, lose elections and let the Democrats fix it. Come back after it’s fixed. The Republican formula for governing.

    • You left out blame Democrats and the ” others ” for it !!

      Mark Bullock that’s false. Last 2 dem presidents reduced deficit handed to them from last 3 republicon debt gorging presidents.

      THAT IS CORRECT ! They have done it consistently along with blowing up the deficit too which then a Democrat pays off. Their policies caused the Great Depression, when FDR and the Dems did any programs to help the public and the economy , the right of course screamed “socialism”- hey , beats being antisocial, LOL, tanked it during Nixon but even the Recession Carter left on was less bad than the one Reagan left on, plus Ron caused the debt to soar with the start of their dumb Nordquist pledge and trickle down economic theory crap – which doesn;t work, never did, but they still cling to it- it is like the definition of insanity, which is doing the same over & over again and expecting different results- then Bill C paid off the GOP debt and even left a surplus which GW Bush blew and raised the debt with his dumb go no where tax cuts for the top & corporations that didn’t really do anything for the economy which was propped up mainly by that Wall Street and mortgage crap – a phony economy basically and I said that back then too. The economy crashes because of no regulation on derivatives and other factors (fraud) leaving a mess and huge deficit for Obama to clean up, stabilizes the economy and pays down half the GOP caused deficit to have idiots elect another Republican, and an even BIGGER one than they have ever elected in tRump too ! ETC., ETC., ETC. IN 2008 Greenspan, and that moron Larry Kudlow (has no formal economic degree or qualifications either- consider that too) who tRump appointed to be Director of the United States National Economic Council in 2018, both said in 2008 that the economy was fine right before things started crashing !!!!!!!!!!

  4. It’s a GOP Kleptocracy, they are stealing all they can.

    • @Mac Mcleod well mid terms are much different from General elections. Your 2 problems are who will the Democrats pick to run against Trump and if it isn’t Bernie how will Bernie’s supporters feel about that?

    • @Alex Hamilton I am concerned that Democrats will become too divisive and snatch defeat from the jaws of victory to the tragedy of our nation.
      When you view what mr. Trump additionally did today with his pardons I hope you can see that there is a significant risk that the rule of law will no longer exist by 2024 if mr. Trump is re-elected.

      2020 could be the last fair and free election we have. So it’s critical that the Democrats remove mr. Trump from Power. So it’s critical that they run an appropriate candidate who can win and that the candidates don’t turn to negative and divided Democratic voters by making them angry and bitter.

      Any candidate who clearly no longer has a chance should step down and support the remaining candidates and ultimately the candidate of the party as Mr Sanders did and the 2016 elections when he worked hard to see Hillary Clinton was elected.

      If the DNC obviously changes the rules and doesn’t give mr. Sanders a clear chance of being elected then I fear too many Sanders supporters will remain home or worse vote for mr. Trump as 450,000 bitter Bernie voters did turning the election in those three states.

      YUP !

  5. *NO MATTER WHO, VOTE BLUE!*
    A steaming pile of dogcrap would be a better president than The OrangeAnus (R – Impeached).

  6. Current USA Economics are being driven by the creator of Trump University…Enough said

    • wandering spirit | February 19, 2020 at 6:26 PM | Reply

      I am up 38% since Trump was elected. My 401K is up $400,000 in three years. So far,so good.
      BTW, there are more 401K millionaires now than ever before.

      Come on , they have people like Larry Kudlow, who has no formal degree in it or qualifications other, than I guess being on FOX’s business shows (LOL) as an advisor. Kudlow (along with Bush’s Reagan throwback, Alan Greenspan) assured the public that the economy was doing “great” in 2008 right before everything hit the fan too !

    “Nobody is a fiscal conservative anymore. All this talk about concern for the deficit and the budget has been bogus for as long as it’s been around.” – Rush Limbaugh 7/16/2019

    Amazing how he stopped caring after his guy got into office.

    • but Rush is a liar so he meant the opposite of that

    • CCJJ160Channels it’s amazing how it doesn’t matter when the voters don’t care and the politicians they vote for don’t care. When politicians begin talking spending cuts
      you start hearing from the voters ,. Cut anywhere but from my perks.

    • Randall P. McMurphy | February 19, 2020 at 5:37 PM | Reply

      Rush will be cold meat soon enough! Hey Rush, want a nice fat cigar?

  8. Why waste time talking about the debt when both sides have proven that they don’t really care. Everyone wants to cut things that they don’t benefit from. They never want to cut their own benefits.

      Suzy Q and all…when a bully (or troll for internet intentions) spurts their words, best thing to do is ignore. Bullies only have power when you interact with them. Same point. Redirect to your good intention.

    • Alexandra Sweet Lol!

    • Randy Sanders We know China isn’t going anywhere!!

  10. Correction: *THE GOP IS DRIVING THE COUNTRY TO FINANCIAL RUIN!*

    • @Robert The Bruce who gives a fudge about a tweet about who to credit for whatever….the bigger issue is the mess In the WH and the traitors currently in it…shesh

      @sugarmilk28 nobama is gone, now the corruption is out of the white house. #trumppence2020

    • @Robert The Bruce 😒😒 typical. #trumpinjail2020

    • @Robert The Bruce The facts are easy to find (just google it) unless you only believe FOX news (hahahahahahaha BS) America has been on a economic recovery for the last 12 years, what you see now is a slow down of that effort, under Trump. Obamas figures were much more positive (truth, the figures are there). Maybe research before you comment, I know this and I live on the other side of the world……

  11. For those of us who don’t own shares, yesterday the markets were worrying about the supply of IPhone. Meanwhile there are millions of people in this country who can’t afford their medications. Wake Up those Americans who need 2 more jobs to make ends meet Vote Bernie Vote Blue 2020

    • Alexander Hall | February 19, 2020 at 7:00 PM | Reply

      I agree with everything you said except the “Vote Bernie” part. Replacing one reckless spender with an even more reckless spender isn’t the solution. What we need are people, most likely Democrats, who understand economics and economic policy and will put forth sane REALISTIC economic policies that will help ALL Americans, not some voodoo pie-in-the-sky nonsense that Trump and Bernie have been pushing for. Donald Trump definitely needs to go, and some time last year, and I really can’t wait to vote against him, but I will NOT be voting for Sanders. He will make the problems Trump has created worse.

      @Alexander Hall every American indicator is improved over the previoys administration!

      Your rhetoric is dumbfounded, gonna ruin it for the rest of us!

      This is the best its been for nearly 75 years! I beg you to get over Hillary losing 2016, take advantage of this golden era!

    • cough

  12. Tell me, when did republicans balance the budget? When? I will tell you: THEY NEVER DID

    • megahappy2beme | February 19, 2020 at 8:17 PM | Reply

      @Robin S It is decided ahead so I would give him that year too. Bush blew the surplus Clinton left him.

    • megahappy2beme | February 19, 2020 at 8:18 PM | Reply

      @johnny walker And ceremoniously blew it with his stupid tax cuts.

    • megahappy2beme | February 19, 2020 at 8:19 PM | Reply

      @Borvo It has long been said the economy does better under Democrats than Republicans and anyone who knows history knows that to be true.

    • @megahappy2beme I think that’s the cash the Bush cartel stole on 9/11. It could be a different $2 Trillion, which is scarierr yet.

    • @Goldenhawk H Yes, and he also used the Defense budget to build the Interstate highways and he still had a balanced budget!

  13. Physical responsibility will START with military spending!

    Audit the DOD, you’ll find a trillion in WASTE!

  14. Trump is running America into the ground the same way he did with his businesses. Get ready for the bankruptcy!

  15. I think it’s more accurate to refer to them as, “the party formerly known as the GOP”. I don’t think it’s a cult, but it looks a lot like one.😬

  16. Conchetta Harris | February 19, 2020 at 12:58 PM | Reply

    How is Mark Sanford going to say anything about the left? Obama had brought the deficit down after Bush raised it. I’m tired of white people.

  17. It’s the Republican’s strategy to financially destroy the country, then use that as an excuse to destroy entitlements and safety net programs.

  18. “It may be midnight in Washington, but the sun will rise again!” -Rep. Adam Schiff

    🇺🇲 Get out there and VOTE! 🇺🇲

    • Suzy Q Interesting that Captain Corruption has been hinting about insurrection for the past year or so. The man is a psychopath, with a pet AG and who knows in the military. The sun could rise with a white, blue, red flag with no stars, given Captain Corruption’s love affair with Vlad.

    • Suzy Q You’re in sad shape when you’re quoting Schiff, the most corrupt politician in the country!

    • @Rod If he is a “corrupt politician” then he is way down on the list. Trump and his cronies are on top of the ever growing list. You obviously have not researched or you would know otherwise.

    • Nice quote. Remember to research your information before posting so you can back up your words. Knowledge will always win over evil. VOTE 2020 VOTE

  19. Has Mark forgotten that it was a democrat that halted the 2007/2008 mini depression and turned it around so that by the time he left office we were once again doing well???!!!!!!!

  20. Republicans cannot be trusted with fiscal responsibility. In fact, at the moment: Republicans cannot be trusted with ANY responsibility!

    • So ya, let’s just open up the borders and let the whole world come in, then make taxpayers pay for their welfare, get rid of oil and gas and spend spend trillions on Bernie’s ‘green new deal’, make all medicare free for all AND illegal aliens, make college free for everyone, well free for illegal aliens, and then increase the taxes on all American citizens, etc., etc. Do you guys really believe everything the MSNBC morons say?
