  • I was very disappointed when Biden won the nomination. I really thought it would be an era of restrained centrism and neoliberalism and have been so pleasantly surprised with how relatively progressive Biden's legislations has been. Given the scale of the havoc wrecked by the pandemic, Biden has the chance to be one of the most influential presidents in American history. I suspect and I'd like to think that his progressivism is an influence of Bernie. To Biden's credit, his team courted and collaborated with Bernie and gave his ideas the attention they deserve. But if at all my hunch turns out to be right; if all Biden leaves an indelible mark on how America progresses in the 21st century; I hope history does not forget the contributions of Bernie to that legacy. The man is extremely underrated and I will forever be heartbroken that a man with such morals and integrity never sat in the oval office.

  • GQP "Ideas" : Make it legal to horse whip poor people at will if you make $200,000 a year. Bernie is greatness, he has almost single handedly moved the Overton Window in the US to the left which was desperately needed. The Overton Window in the US had been so far right that not only could real, needed solutions not be discussed, the real problems couldn't be discussed.

I'm going to tell you something that is going to matter to you, Stephen Colbert. "The world is how you dream it". "El mundo es como uno lo sueña". And one last thing. "There are some people so poor, all they have is money". and thats from the old bedroom wall. Sincerely as fuck, Ana Gabriela Jackson Chaves. check out my twitter.

    • 100%. Even as Dems claimed the majority of voters wanted someone more moderate while they coalesced to push Bernie out, they know that's completely untrue. That we want progressive change, real-people centered policies, to come into what the US is really supposed to be. It's a carefully mastered plan to keep the pissed off calm & comfortable

I'm not religious, but I always imagine that this is what it's like to see an angel holding a flaming sword aloft; the rage at injustice and unfair treatment, a being that simply wants to make the world a better place for all people who has now has to resort to anger and violence and all you can do is pray that they have the power to make a change before it's too late

Looking Forward To Your Honest, & If Need-Be, Covert Response. 💃🏽

  • USA 🇺🇸 prays for UBI ( Anti - Poverty Bill ) Of $3,000/Month tax free for life to all poor citizens! The first $36,000/Year is tax free to lift everyone out of poverty and eradicate homelessness and labor exploitation! Flat tax of 3% after $36,001 and up to $100,000. Flat tax of 7% of $100,001 and up to $400,000. Flat tax of 11% of $400,001 and up to $1 million. Flat tax of 15% of $1 million and up to $11 million. Then to eradicate and punish greed; a massive tax of 55% anything over $11 million! Goal is to purge extreme greed and greed will increase UBI structure 😇

For starters, if we don't remove corporate lobbying money from politics, it will very difficult to affect any significant changes. Keep in mind that just 1% of Americans have more wealth than 50% of all Americans. Do you think they're going to go down without a fight? Let's see what happens in the next 4 years. I wouldn't hold your breath.

Some have no teeth, their children don't have the necessary parent involvement in their schooling because they are not educated. They live in conditions that are beneath the minimum. They are poor.

We need solid fact based and science based and logic based government from top to bottom now, and for the future, or we are sunk. It is literally reality or the Rapture Right. So, please, let's work on building truth and justice, making things fair, but real, and learning to actually get along. Our best non-scarce resource consumption is education and learning about each other. Next best is getting back to using manual labor and livestock to make our food and our homes.
