What about Elizabeth Warren? :gigglesnshit:


I would say that most Hispanic females have some native blood, so it sort of depends on how you define native.

Then there is Tulsi Gabbard. I think she qualifies as native.


So we're lumping Hispanics and Native Americans together now? I didn't know that.


Most Hispanics are part Native American. That's why they don't look like Spaniards. It's really kind of up to the person anymore. Two people with virtually the same amount of Native blood, may identify as different races, based more on how and where they are raised. We even have a small contingent of Black Cherokee, as the Cherokee were allowed to bring their black slaves, when the were marched to Oklahoma.

Americans are getting so blended by race and DNA anymore, that I'm not sure it really matters anymore, unless you want to use it to your advantage.


Are Native Americans in agreement with this view of yours? Generally, obviously you haven't asked them all.



A lot of folks have switched to the phase POC (person of color), as it defines pretty much everyone of mixed race, which is the vast majority of Hispanics, blacks and Native Americans.

One can claim to be Native American, but if you can't prove membership in a tribe, you're not really an "Indian". That membership can require little or no Native blood, yet someone with a great deal of Native blood, isn't considered an Indian, because they don't have tribal membership. It's complicated and confusing, and can be pretty much up to how the person wants to identify themselves.

True!
I bet The Democrats still put up a Clinton(esc) candidate to run against him though. Like in the UK, neoliberals never learn.

The ones with the round ends?

I've got Charles Kennedy emblazoned on my party member badge, far nicer than all of that red shit :snooty:

Didn't a load of kippers and gammons join the LP for three quid so that they could vote in Corbyn and fuck up the party?

I don’t think he should bother to kidnap anyone, his lack of effort with the note will give him away.

Yes but it’s backfired on them, even more people ended up joining thinking lots of the public were joining. So haha, jokes on them! :mrgreen:

According to Trump, he still has to follow the two main rules or not getting wet and not feeding after midnight.

There are also rumours that his last soaking resulted in the creation of Sarah Huckerbee-Sanders.

He said, ‘It wasn’t a sign of disrespect, but any sort of liquid on my person and mini-Trumps would have come shooting out of my back.’

‘Bear in mind that they would have all been even eviler than me as well. Very evil. Totally very evil. I can tell you.’

And hope trumps fear... How about Healthcare for all and an end to America's shocking lack of workers rights? The Socialist Democrat candidates did well yet like in the UK neoliberal millionaires are terrified of the little people getting a piece of their pie.

Alexandria Cortez for President! :twirl: Or if she's too young Bernie, who would've whooped Trump's arse in 2016.

She's too young (has to be 35).

She's also far too stupid. One can have leftist views like her and not be stupid, but she really is not very bright. Her stupidity helps create about a meme a minute over here.


If you are interested in a female, from the Dem party, Tulsi Gabbard is a far better candidate. She is bright, articulate and well informed on issues, unlike Cortez. I think people may like the idea of Cortez, but no honest person can watch one of her interviews and say she is not very lacking in knowledge and answers.

She's not stupid & the "leftist views" she holds are mainstream in most western countries. If you believe your country can't afford healthcare for all and statutory sick pay you've been hoodwinked spectacularly. I wouldn't dream of calling you stupid though.

Her age makes her inexperienced so that could be an issue but tbh, she's had more life experience than alot of world leaders I can think of. I'll look up Tulsi Gabbard. :thumbsup:

I was reading a piece earlier, and they think Clinton will run again. I'd love her to, it will split the Dems in two :yess:
