I do think we're on route to elect Elizabeth Warren. I am concerned by that of course because she's a worse candidate, but REALLY because I do think she has a much worse match up against Trump than Bernie...
[half sarcasm] If we make it so all voting and polling is done by mobile app, then the country will definitely go in the right direction. [/sarcastic because that would definitely not be democratic but seriously you know in your heart it’s true]

Her recent appearance on the Rubin Report was pretty disgusting honestly-- broke my heart...
Wait, so you're open to Single Payer socialized medicine, transition Off Fossil Fuels green program, Launching a Study for Reparations to the Descendents of Slavery, and ending the regime change wars/scaling back military in order to pay for these things-- just so long as we say political...
