Seventeen candidates remain in contention for the 2020 Democratic presidential nomination. Today Beto is out https://www.nytimes.com/2019/11/01/us/politics/beto-orourke-drops-out.amp.html?0p19G=3248
Here is where his run ended O’Rourke answered, “Hell, yes, we’re going to take your AR-15, your AK-47.” 9/12/2019
This guy was a terrible speaker and when he veered into speaking Spanish in the debates it was just weird, but when you make that statement on the national stage you are just plain stupid. Not even the most liberal candidates stand behind that. The minute he made that statement I looked at my wife and said he is done.
Nobody would argue, at least no sane person that these guns are really unnecessary. You do have the right to own them, we all know about the second amendment but the logical question is, do you need them? Nobody needs them but nobody should ever confiscate them either! That is a slippery slop giving to much power to the executive branch and once they get a nibble there is no going back.
Not sure where my vote will go yet (I know for sure it is not going to the orange guy) but just for fun I’m leaning toward Warren with The Chinese guy as a running mate. Hell if she pays off my daughters college loans and that cat gives me and my wife a 1000.00 bucks a month each I think I can parley that with my social security and 401k right into retirement!
