your 100 percent correct. I'm not watching anymore debates. fuck them all. cnn helped Trump win in 2016 by having surrogates lie for Trump everyday 24 hours a day. now they are insuring he wins in 2020 the first thing Trump will do is put brakes on the first amendment, calling it something else.

Her point about fixing roads so we don't pay as much for replacing tires is such a red herring. It sounds like she just wants to maintain the status quo. I'm all about infrastructure investment, but not if its going toward feeding auto dependency, suburban sprawl, McMansion style development and all the social ills that stem from these poorly conceived planning policies--obesity, racial segregation, inequality, environmental degradation, greater tax burden, etc. Basically, her point is meaningless to me unless it coresponds to greater structural change.

It's difficult to weave your story into a convincing narrative without a central idea to your character. If Harris doesn't believe in anything concrete, then she may as well be in it for herself only. Why should we trust anyone who doesn't believe in anything larger than herself?
