Default Where are the capable dem candidates?

Why haven't there been any good dem candidates for prez? There are plenty of strong dem governors and other credible public figures. Repubs had 16 or 17 come out of the woodwork for 2016. I don't think there have been any solid dems for 2020.

i believe there is a deep malaise, a spiritual funk, if you will, that infects almost all politicians, and even those who are not overtly political, who go to live in the environs of d.c.. the dems are the primary human source of this spiritual ailment, because they have, by a vast majority, rejected anything to do with God and His ways. what's scary is that the church has been asleep in the light for so long that it looks like it will take a major movement of the Holy Spirit to correct it! these movements are marked in history by periods of deep, dark human depravity, necessary for the human heart to see it's condition, follow by massive revival. we haven't seen that level of depravity here, yet, but it appears to be growing. to use the title of an old book, satan is alive and well on planet earth, and he will use anybody who is foolish enough to not have their hearts guarded by God and His Holy Spirit! sorry if this started to sound like a sermon, but it is what's in my mind concerning washington.

Yang and Gabbard are both serious and capable. I donated to both to keep them in the race because they are not complete wacko's like the rest of the field. I disagree with them but they are more equipped to do a job then the others and strike me as people that would at least listen to opposing views and consider them. If you do podcasts check out both of them on JRE.



When was the last time you saw a candidates platform like Yang's talk about Thorium Reactors?

I've not come across a capable dummycratic. However, one could compile a sizeable list of "culpable" dummycrats.

The entire party lost any credibility, so far as I am concerned, when it turned it's back on the Constitution, embraced socialistic ideals, openly admitted to planning on disarming America, pulled a kangaroo court on the POTUS...... need more?

There must be some competent Democrats out there..but at the moment I can't think of one !

If there are some out there, I believe they are staying low in the bushes, figuring no Dem is going to beat Pres Trump..

All the Dem candidates are capable---capable of turning a good country into a third world outhouse.

That answers my question. I was just thinking of another kind of capable. Silly me.
