It feels like just yesterday when everyone I knew was laughing about Clayton Bigsby, Black White Supremacist. Then I realize, holy shit, that was 15 years ago.

The media is so awful. People don't have opinions any more because they just spit back what the MSM tells them their opinion should be. The photo just proves that.

She also wants to expand DACA and Temporary Protected Status, decriminalize illegal immigration, expand legal immigration, and take 5x more refugees than we do now. I would have to guess her hope is in all those people who don't live there yet.

Candidates tend to lean farther from center in the primaries and then move more to the middle in the general election, but she is so far from the center there's no coming back. I can't imagine most mainstream Dem voters think any of this stuff is a good idea.

These don’t appear to be particularly that far-left positions to me. Maybe “modestly left” and perhaps unpopular.

The wall itself has a 30-some percent approval rating if I remember correctly. So apparently unpopular positions can be floated and people still easily win.
