"The more people know about computers, the less you want computers to run the vote" Yeah, when that was said, I knew that guy had no clue what he was talking about. Sure, security is an issue. But everything else they mention has a work around.

this executive immunity bullshit makes no sense.. how is that checks and balances if the legislative branch can't check and balance the executive branch?

This was interesting. I think the candidate closest to Obama as a unifier is Andrew Yang. Also, he has shown to have big grassroots enthusiasm despite low media coverage.

Many of your hosts if not all have a major corporate establishment bias. But NPR is where I get my corporate news and political commentary.

You must have seen a different Amy Klobuchar in the debates than the rest of us.

Didn't mention Andrew Yang once in post debate coverage?! He is THE reason automation is a topic. He got direct questions contrasting himself and Sanders and himself and Warren. He made Warren look silly because she had to admit she hadn't looked at the data on jobs automation even though she has taken a stance on the issue saying it's a good story and nothing else. ... How did you not say his name once?

There is also the irony that Nixon opened the door to China and Trump has started a Trade war there.

Wow really dont appreciate the clear bias against Bernie particularly from Mara... Bernie is fine, the surgery is standard for people his age if you researched at all you would know the recovery time is only days.. He will be at the next debate. I listen to you guys for my corporate bias media because you are generally the least bad of the MSM but keep trashing Bernie subtly or otherwise and I will stop listening.
