#1 She's anti-war. We can't insist on purity for all candidates. Stopping the wars all over the world is good enough.

#2 She isn't very bright, either.
Still, it's nice to hear a DC politician calling BS on the Shitshow.

#3 In any healthy republic, a sane and civil opposition is necessary. She represents to me, what the Democrat party should be like. Left, liberal maybe but also deserving of a voice and not militant or insurgent like the current DNC.

#4 She seems way to honest to win Dem (or for that matter, Rep) elections. She seems consistent in what she says, and has said. She is not stupid. She is not painful to listen to (or to look at, for that matter.) Would that more candidates were like her so that we could actually have substantive discussions on policies - where I mostly disagree with her.

Not if taking Second Amendment rights away from law-abiding Americans is part of the "package deal." Not if foaming-at-the-mouth socialism is part of the "package deal."

#6 Stopping the wars all over the world is good enough

How, even if one was to exterminate humanity, chimps fight wars. Ants fight wars.

#7 Fortunately we're not chimps, and there are no existential threats to our existence. We can wind down all of our wars all over the world, and make a better America instead of spending our money on worthless military adventures.

The point is that Gabbard is a sane Democrat, even if we disagree with her. She's on the same page as far as being pro-American. A rare quality in either party, frankly.

Arrogant & delusional.
Also, "existential threats to our existence"?

#9 When we've turned away from physical conflicts with irrational misanthropes by acknowledging they're all really in our minds, we can get down to battling the real threat of a planet increasingly unable to support our whimsies. eg: watching an F1 race surrounded by tropical forest.

#10 Thank goodness we'd never act chimpy,
Form up in an impious impi,
Inhumanly feudin',
Stone throwin' or shootin'...
Those monkeys must sure think we're wimpy!

#11 So, peace, pace Fermi!
Stop tryin' to scare me,
And shaddup and watch Ren and Stimpy.

#12 Ren and Stimpy

Now that brings up memories.

#13 Nice - another F1 fan (I hope!).

#14 OK, I'll bite: what are the threats to the existence of the continental United States?

Iranians going to put landing craft on Miami Beach?

#15 #7 - I'm beginning to think you're simply arguing withdrawal to the point of unilateral disarmament? Is there ANY conflict that would EVER justify US intervention in your little mind? I doubt it. Troll

#16 Nice - another F1 fan

Have nothing against it. Just stopped watching after Ayrton Senna died.

I do find the globalist facade of curbing developing economies' fuel and coal consumption in the name of saving the environment hypocritical. While motorsports must waste I don't know how much fuel.

#17 When Jimmuah Cahtah was prexident he had an aide ask the people who run the Indy 500 if they would shorten the race as a feel good gesture of saving gasoline during the oil embargo. The administration was informed that Indy cars don't burn gasoline.

#18 Last election she supported Bernie Sanders and she believes only the military and cops should have weapons. The fact that she looks good compared to the rest of the Clown Car just indicates how bad they are, not how good she is.
