Megathread: Cory Booker Drops Out of Presidential Race

Westlake Legal Group 9UBbfxJ2jcqyQonM6MCHhkAtusC0mkBcu1BMELkM_2c Megathread: Cory Booker Drops Out of Presidential Race r/politics

This is so shocking to POC.

Watching the media use kid gloves on the well spoken 2 term Mayor while Senators and a former Cabinet Secretary are either ignored, or called “rude” and their comments portrayed as attacks is disheartening but typical.

The sexism and racism that exist even in our party manifests itself in frequent undermining of women and POC.

This whole 2020 campaign has been one based on appealing to Old White Voters who’ve gone all in on the racism of trump and the GOP.

The same thing is going to happen to Warren soon and we’re going to pick from either a young White Male or 2 old White Males.

Westlake Legal Group BH5EnoURTkA6e7G_eRkAuGgnyz0QckN8Gbu-_8Nae7A Discussion Thread: 2020 Primaries and Caucuses Calendar and Registration Information r/politics

Hello r/politics!

We’re less than a month away from the official beginning of the 2020 Primaries and Caucuses! 50 states, 5 territories, the District of Colombia, and voters living abroad will be participating in caucuses and elections between early February and early June as part of the lead up to November in order to determine which candidate will represent the Republican and Democratic parties.

Democratic contests will be held in all 56 locations (as well as abroad), but Republican contests have been cancelled in Alaska, Arizona, Hawaii, Kansas, Nevada, South Carolina, and Virginia.

Registration deadlines, voting/caucus procedures and dates vary from place to place, so we have put together this table to help you find out more information about how, where, and when you can participate. Follow the links for location-specific details and note the information regarding party-switching deadlines and caucus types at the bottom of the table.

And as always, please be mindful of following the rules of /r/politics when participating in discussion threads.

‘Inequality in a nutshell’ — Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez says the Dow’s record high is meaningless for many Americans

Westlake Legal Group PxRemjCF_mJ_Nqg6w20iVagTGw_HZFCYZPemhP0fXFU 'Inequality in a nutshell' — Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez says the Dow's record high is meaningless for many Americans r/politics

I think you can make it more poignant, albeit less direct by framing it in terms of retirement savings.

For all of that bottom 80% and even most of that 10%, the only stocks they own are in tax-advantaged retirement accounts. A 401k or an IRA. Most of them get no choice over who invests those stocks or what fees they have to pay.

Most of that bottom 80% has between $0 and $50,000 in those retirement accounts. The majority of them have zero. They either have no retirement plan or will rely solely on Social Security when they stop working.

Most of that 10% represent various professional class people that actually attempt (and are able) to save for retirement and accumulate six or low seven figures by the time they are retirement age.

It’s only approaching the Apex of that top 10% and the 1% where having “investments” that rival their working income is a thing.

Tell when someone wants to pump up the stock market, ask them how much they have saved for retirement.

Debunking the “abortion regret” narrative: Data shows women feel relief, not regret. In our study we learned that after 5 years, 99 percent of women reported their abortion was the right decision

Westlake Legal Group ft46Fil-NQh6anpKdSfowYduXD3ehUqZbBuweHCRbvg Debunking the "abortion regret" narrative: Data shows women feel relief, not regret. In our study we learned that after 5 years, 99 percent of women reported their abortion was the right decision r/politics

You all do realize that the argument, at least the properly made ones don’t claim abortion is bad because it isn’t taken lightly. The argument is that in non marginal cases(marginal being rape, imminent death), a women’s want to abort a baby does not outweigh the life of the baby. This of course breaks down into the semantics of where the line is drawn about it being considered a life, which philosophy has a lot to say on the matter. But there are countless ways to defend how upon conception, day 1, a clump of cells should be treated as a life.

It seems the left and right conflate two separate arguments, the left says I can do what I want with my body, which the right isn’t disagreeing with. What they are disagreeing with is that fact that the clump of cells inside of you no longer counts as your body and thus you do not have a right to kill it.

The reason getting an abortion feels like a difficult decision is because one must find a way to deal with the fact they are in essence, committing murder. The reason a miscarriage at any point in a pregnancy feels so heartbreaking is because it is the loss of a life. If I was a woman, about to have an untimely baby, I’d probably want to abort it too… but who wouldn’t want to murder someone about to potentially ruin their whole life or at the very least take 18 years off of it?

Andrew Johnson’s impeachment trial had 41 witnesses, Clinton’s had 3, and now some GOP senators want zero

Westlake Legal Group CITWuOfLQkMRWGr-IRi9CiTbB15z9BpgjqUBlNZ-Omk Andrew Johnson's impeachment trial had 41 witnesses, Clinton's had 3, and now some GOP senators want zero r/politics

Once again. Everything the GOP says is projection and double speak. McConnell can’t stop talking about Impeachment precedent and procedure which I guess he applies very selectively and then simultaneously upending precedent elsewhere. The Trump fiasco shows that the GOP has lost all principle. No other person could highlight it in so many facets.

– They’re not really religious.

– They’re not really patriotic.

– They’re not really for law and order.

– They’re not really about interpreting the Constitution conservatively.

– They’re not really for election security.

– They’re not really interested in cutting the deficit.

– They’re not really patriots.

The GOP has become a post-democratic party that is happy with enriching itself as a political class at the expense of literally the rest of the world.
