  1. Maybe using fear is not the best way to make decisions.

  2. Bernie Sanders stabbed me in the eye with a corn chip.

  3. Yes, the frontrunner of the race is totally the leader of a radical cabal which doesn’t represent the will of the common people in anyway. Citizens have not been saying for years that they are disillusioned with media and politics, and ESPECIALLY not the intersection of those two things. The last election was a sweeping victory for the milquetoast centrists, and we should be clamoring into our shelters until this threat of change passes, the system can take root again, and another moderate can ascend to office!

    Wait… that’s NOT how it happened? whoops

  4. “And yes, Trump would call any Democrat an open-borders socialist”

    Are there any Democrats that don’t support open borders?

  5. If he gets the nomination, I’ll support him. I’ll hope he moves towards the center and doesn’t throw the capitalism baby out with the bathwater. Not that he’ll have free reign to do as he pleases anyway.

  6. From Wikipedia on Jonathan Chait the author of the above rubbish, https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Jonathan_Chait:

    * Chait was an initial supporter of the 2003 Invasion of Iraq.

    * In February 2016, Chait argued in New York Magazine that “Liberals Should Support a Trump Republican Nomination”, predicting among other things that a Trump presidency would develop similar to the governorship of Arnold Schwarzenegger in California (who like Trump was a celebrity who became a Republican politician without prior public service experience).[24] In 2019, The Outline selected this piece as one of the “worst takes of the 2010s”, opining that “Chait’s immensely confident take […] is a humiliating crystallization of the wrongheaded thinking that propelled [Trump] to the White House.”

    * Jonathan Chait has written extensively in support of charter schools.[26][27] On January 14, 2019, he accused Senator Elizabeth Warren of selling out to “powerful interests” for her opposition to an initiative which would have expanded the number of charter schools in Massachusetts.

    He seems to be just a fucking asshole who is fundamentally wrong.
