Third Democratic Debate Review

Hello everyone!

Bernie Sanders was awesome, Elizabeth Warren was awesome, Andrew Yang was awesome, & Cory Booker was awesome! There were quality comments from the others, especially from Amy Klobuchar and Julian Castro.

Based on record and platform, I certainly thought Bernie was the best with a model distinction between democratic socialism and authoritarian socialism, as well as sticking to the best healthcare plan and best foreign policy record; that being said, Warren did fantastic in this debate, with a charismatic and endearing (comforting) approach. Yang and others should have had more time, though he did well and had some wonderful positions & rhetoric (interestingly bold to bring in UBI as a campaign tactic), as did Booker who empowered the brighter parts of his record and highly impressed me.

Klobuchar has inspiring experiences and a mostly civil approach, and Castro has decent positions on the issues, and had some extremely bold one liners! I will look forward to hearing more from Kamala Harris, Pete Buttigieg, and Beto O’Rourke, who also had some good moments.

I love some of what Joe Biden did as VP, including being an integral part of national marriage equality, though I cannot abide with the centrist platform for the primaries.

Your thoughts? Who won, who lost? What issues should’ve been addressed, and who do you want to hear more from?

As for me... Bernie Sanders 2020 ✌️

Stay groovy,

Tell Publix: Drop Plastic Lobbyists

People nationwide have fought plastic pollution by helping to pass single-use plastic bans. But in Florida, paid lobbyists extensively bankrolled by Publix are working to undermine these efforts. 
Publx has excessive amounts of single-use plastics in its stores, has refused to take bold leadership, and actively works with lobbyists like the Florida Retail Federation to stop you from protecting your community 
against plastic pollution. HERE

Noam Chomsky on Bernie Sanders

 Noam Chomsky was asked about Democratic presidential candidate 
Bernie Sanders.
He considers him more of a “New Deal Democrat” than a radical extremist, as some have portrayed him. 
Chomsky said Sanders’ positions on taxes and healthcare are supported by a majority of the American public, and have been for a long time.
Sanders has “mobilized a large number of young people who are saying, 'Look, we're not going to consent anymore.’ If that turns into a continuing, organized, mobilized force, that could change the country. HERE
Tampa Berners it's showtime!

Florida GOP War On Hillsborough County Voters

It takes some nerve for the Republican meddlers in the Florida House to seek to overturn the will of Hillsborough voters who overwhelmingly supported a one-cent sales tax for countywide transportation improvements. The House’s intervention in a legal challenge is an overreach legally and politically, and it’s an insult to residents. It’s also further proof that Tallahassee knows no limits when it comes to ignoring referendum results and interfering 
in local decisions. HERE

Florida DNC Exposed

"Guess who got a full list of how every DNC member voted regarding the resolution to hold a climate
 change debate?
Only two Florida DNC members voted in favor of holding the vote. Thank you 
Ken Evans and John Ramos.

So disappointed to see our own chair Terrie Rizzo voted against 
the debate." HERE
And of course Hillsborough's State Committeewoman Alma Gonzalez voted not to hold the debate. Even though people of color and marginalized communities are the most "at risk" communities.
Please note that a "no" vote is in favor of a climate debate and passing the resolution, while a "yes" vote is opposed to the climate debate and killing the resolution.
