Oprah to run for president 2020

Could you imagine the SJW Queen as POTUS?! She would be worse than Trump.

http://www.smh.com.au/entertainment/oprah-for-president-winfrey-fans-urge-white-house-run-after-metoo-speech-20180108-h0fcz4.html

But I think she should run. And get beaten. Show these bloody bleeding hearts there is a practical limit to how much support you can give to their various causes.

There was noticeably less laughter at all the Trump jokes during the Golden Globes this year, the body language was completely different. There were many forced smiles.

If Oprah gets the Dem nomination, she will definitely win the election.

She's incredibly popular and has no skeletons in her closet.

Would she make a good President. Who knows. Anyone who thinks they can answer that question about anyone before the person has served and finished their term is just blowing smoke.

Heck maybe Sarah would have been a good President.

Hey if a person who gets paid to play a rich guy on TV can be President, why not a self-made billionaire who gets paid to play a humble public servant on TV?

Oprah's definitively better than Hillary.

I heard they no longer had "angels" to deliver the envelops containing the winners. Now they are called ambassadors.

"Hey if a person who gets paid to play a rich guy on TV can be President, why not a self-made billionaire who gets paid to play a humble public servant on TV?"

That makes sense to me.

I'd probably vote for her if her platform was decent and she was able to keep up with the stress of campaigning.

If Sanders gets the nomination I might vote for him too, assuming they come clean about the shenanigans his wife pulled at that college she destroyed.

Most likely it'll be a shitshow like every election is, neither of those people will be running, it'll be two lunatics and I'll have to choose between the Libertarian and Green candidates.

It's true that Oprah is an actual self made billionaire whereas Trump in all likelihood is worth less than the 200 million he inherited from his daddy. So all the dipshits like Wildriver that think being rich means you can manage the economy should really get behind her.

Her "rape is bad" message probably won't play well with the misogynist foreveralones here though.

I get so tired of all these bullshit Democratic "candidates" and "phrases" -- black lives matter, Oprah for President.

Then, when push comes to shove, and it's voting day, it's all "Democrats shouldn't take black votes for granted!" -- as if Democrats EVER took black votes for granted.  Yet that phrase is used to support perfectionistic demands by a small segment of African American voters -- who then don't come out and vote anyway.

And so we're left with people like Trump.  So the perfect is the enemy of the good, and so Trump's policies of cutting education funding, increasing privatization of schools, increasing the divide between rich and poor, cutting social spending, cutting Welfare training, wind up winning.  Yay, you won, you can sling slogans like anything, but goddamn it if you can get Democratic policies that actually SUPPORT your race into power. 

When it comes to that, you bail.  I'm tired of it.  One distraction after another, but when it's critically important you do nothing.

It sounds like you are arguing that blacks who voted for policies you don't agree with are race traitors and Uncle Toms.

Fair enough. But what makes you the spokesman for what black people need though? Are you always looking out for the welfare of your blacks. Do people just not understand the special relationship you have with them?

This argument that people should vote along racial lines rather than for policies and candidates they support is interesting.

Are white people who voted against Trump race traitors as well?

"cutting education funding, increasing privatization of schools"

Black performance in public schools is absolutely terrible, nationwide. Not only that but there is a documented inverse correlation between spending and outcome. Districts that spend a fortune on education do worse on average than those that spend less.

Black performance at charter schools, private schools, and homeschools, all are significantly better than performance at public schools. In fact black private school performance often outpaces white public school performance.

So... Trump killing the Department of Education and slashing funding will almost certainly result in better educational outcomes based on what we know.

This kind of shit really needs to go, along with the sexual reduction and fetishization of persian girls we saw in the thread where Shylock had nothing sensible to contribute so he tried to pivot the whole thread to talking about how persian girls were easy and he liked to fuck them. Disgusting how certain people are so insanely misogynist that women are nothing but holes to them.

No, I'm saying that blacks who parade around saying "Black Lives Matter!" and "I can't Breathe!" -- and then don't vote -- are shooting themselves, and the rest of progressive America, in the foot.

And then blaming Liberals for the results, and enabling Republicans to fuck them and their children over.

It's all a question of Effective Action.  Bullshitting with slogans for two weeks, then NOT following through with their votes, is an ineffective Action.  Like pissing yourself in a dark suit, it gives YOU a nice warm feeling for a bit, but nobody else notices.

2016 overall turnout was 61.4%.

Black turnout was 59.6%. Higher historically than in all other elections in the US, with the only exceptions being the two elections in which a black man ran for President and won.

Who do they vote for? A known hard core racist like Hillary and her husband?

Or a reality star who has tons of close black friends, but whom a bunch of white people are telling blacks they shouldn't vote for him, they should vote for racist Hillary instead.

Maybe the turnout would have been higher if not, but it seems unlikely.

That's not Trump's policies. That's the policies of the people working behind the scenes for the GOP. Like the Koch bros, and Roger Ailes - who created Fox Noise. The gerrymandering is also done to keep blacks out of power because they firmly believe that only white power can save capitalism.
