    Cruz really went downhill. Lee is up there with Rand most of the time, but slightly less liberty-oriented.

    I won't categorically vote for a Democrat but I would vote for Tulsi Gabbard. Otherwise I will probably vote for a 3rd party. Maybe the Republican candidate will not be Trump too and that's the only way I'd have a chance of voting Republican. We really don't know much yet.

    He was the last great one of the old guard, staying in past even Ron Paul despite his failing health. RIP Amash is doing a great job in there but he needs some more support.

    I trust nobody, but Trump has been a liar his whole life and would say conflicting things about foreign policy (a lot of pro-war stuff that people just conveniently ignored). So I knew never to trust him. The media fawned over Obama and his brand of "anti-war" which is basically just being against failed Republican wars in speeches.

    Gabbard calls out the MIC, which is one of the reasons why she's hated so much. With the will, you can end the cycle, but most of these politicians only provide lip service to being anti-war while calling for increased military funding or regime change. Bush's wars were unpopular so Democrats pretended like they'd stop it or that they would've done differently (Gore would've been just as bad as Bush probably). Then as good controlled opposition, the Obama administration continued the same pro-MIC policies. These same Obama/Clinton Dems all are running scared of Gabbard.

    Swordsmyth I've been trying to understand the disparity between her voting record and her public statements (which both seem to be consistent within themselves, but not with each other). What it seems like, to me, is that she supports the idea of continuing to be an influence and taking an incremental approach to getting our military out of harm's way, rather than what most of us here at least used to favor which is immediate withdrawal. I personally trust her judgment on these things, given the independent work she's done to try to figure stuff out and I think ultimately we're in the same scenario: 1. Make the mess (already done, can't change it) 2. Heal the mess 3. GTFO, and don't make new messes She brings up things that I find sensible such as that if we are to just abandon the Kurds in Syria it'd not only be morally bad but would send a bad message of untrustworthiness. And I think similar is the case for most places - we started messes by intervening, but could even bring bigger messes by immediate withdrawals. So yes, I am fine supporting such a vocal opposition of regime change who wants to incrementally withdraw, and I think the treatment she's getting is pretty good proof that she's driving the neocons/neoliberals insane with her vision. And even those who may not share my same general optimism of what she's about, I think you should be able to see how she isn't as bad as the Democrat mainstream Clintonites who are trying to smear her dishonestly for "loving Assad" and stuff like that.

    What's her voting record like? I believe her rhetoric has been pretty consistent over the years, and while I would prefer people to take the Ron Paul/Amash approach of voting against bad crap that has 420 votes already, perhaps not being that lone dissent yielded other (non-self promotional) benefits. She's putting her own political career on the line by doing what she's doing now anyway, and that makes me think that she'd do the same as President. She also seems very open to cutting down the warfare state which already makes her more fiscally responsible than Trump and most Republicans. Even if she's not ideal, she could be the best of options we've got by a long shot.

    You can watch it here, and I think she did a great job handling these vicious people. You could see Kasie Hunt's vicious bulging eyes trying to please her masters with her "gotcha questions", trying to pigeonhole Gabbard as some sort of friend of Assad. https://www.msnbc.com/morning-joe/watch/rep-gabbard-assad-is-not-an-enemy-of-the-us-1438093891865 Related: NBC News, to Claim Russia Supports Tulsi Gabbard, Relies on Firm Just Caught Fabricating Russia Data for the Democratic Party At the moment, it seems she is the only candidate making any coherent arguments against the endless war machine. It'll be interesting to see how the DNC and their propaganda outlets try to smear and black her out like they did with Ron Paul.

    US Political News is fine. Strangely I don't see the MSM giving any attention to this.

    Only a few Democrats have any guts to oppose this anti-free speech disaster of a bill. I wonder why this one isn't getting much coverage... https://www.bloomberg.com/news/articles/2019-01-30/israel-boycott-fight-divides-democrats-on-free-speech-concerns Edit: oops I can't delete this, I accidentally posted in the wrong forum.
