Default She's Back....Tulsi Gabbard returns to JRE

Brand new one (two days ago)....I just started it this morning so no opinion from me yet.

I want to hear her out. While she won't get my vote, I still consider her one of the more reasonable Dems (ie... she's not bat **** crazy).

No matter how sane she may appear.....just remember, she still represents the evil that is the democratic party. She may shine and come out ahead in the primaries as you stated, she isn't as bat **** crazy as the rest of the clowns running...but make no mistake, as a democrat, she is still out to take away your freedom, take away your livelihood, and destroy the country.

No shes not. She just has a different opinion on things than you do, and since you cant understand that you demonize it.


I have a long drive today, looking forward to listening.

Working at home today... she's on YouTube on the big TV right now.

If you haven't already checked out Lex Fridman (AI expert) from a week ago, do that. He's such a well rounded, normal, smart dude. He even rolls. I enjoyed.

Early on so far she's all about ending regime change wars and the "military industrial complex".

This isn't far from candidate Trump really.

This is what attracts me to her. But I'm guessing she'll fall off the rails soon on social stuff. She can't compete with the crazy dems being normal...

Her logical approach automatically disqualifies her for 90% of democratic voters. They want emotions to reign supreme over thoughtful consideration.

Exactly. In the end....she won't get 10% in the primary. She needs much more crazy in her to compete in that zoo.

I'd pay for PPV to watch her debate AOC....that would be some damn good entertainment.

I do understand your concern. Any Democrat in the White House being cheered on by a bat **** crazy Dem Congress is a scary thought.

Of course, that is the same fear D's had with Trump and an R Congress.... and why we no longer have both.

They are talking about the military industrial complex still... and now just played Eisenhower's speech from 1961 as he was leaving office. He could have spoke of anything. He chose to speak of the military industrial complex. This isn't tin foil hat stuff. It's real.

She talks a good game but when you look at her voting record shes just another gun banning, more government is better, environmental whacko Democrat. Shes just smart enough to run towards the center when trying to con people into voting for her at the national level.

Strike One.

more government is better
Strike Two.

environmental whacko Democrat. Shes just smart enough to run towards the center when trying to con people into voting for her at the national level.
Strike Three.

Like I said, I ain't voting for her. I just want to hear her out. Here's a decent article on her positions (her website doesn't talk about ****....is just there for collecting money)..

Which Republicans ever shrank government? All these ****** politicians are about money and power. You don't get either of those by shrinking the scope of your own authority. Same pigs wearing different outfits. You just stay distracted with debates about abortion and trannies while these ******** enrich themselves.

I like what she has to say about foreign policy, I like her policy and she is not preaching healthcare for all or open boarders. She might shine once the other 23 candidates fizzle out and die on the vine

Not yet, anyway. With 22 or so other dims trying to buy votes anywhere and everywhere they can and crowding the field on the extreme left, somebody has to appear to be a moderate and somewhat rational. If by some miracle she gets the nomination, the leopard will change its spots in a big hurry.

Finished it.

Industrial military complex and regime change definitely dominate this one.

Definitely some of her socialism and Orange Man Bad along the way....but at a much lesser scale than her competitors.

She's very calm, logical, and easy to listen to and follow. She's very likeable. But she needs to fix her socialist tendencies. And she keeps talking about her military experience as her qualifier. If that's the case, there's a few million other veterans just as qualified.

Bottom line... she's still too young for the job. She still needs to grow out of some of her positions.

In the near-zero chance she gets the dem nomination, I’ll vote for her.
