    As angry as he was there, he doesn't deserve any more time beyond the four years we initially gave him!

    Absolutely not. Of course, Dems will no doubt pick another corporatist war monger to run against him. A polite one, I'm sure. After all, their problem with Trump is his vulgarity rather than his policies. They adopted a rule on Friday stating only registered Democrats can seek the Democratic Presidential nomination. It's no doubt a move to keep Bernie Sanders from seeking the party's nomination this time, unless he's actually willing to register as a Democrat. So while Trump doesn't deserve another term, the Dems just might give him one.

    It is equally interesting not whether he *deserves* a second term, but whether he will get one. I mean, for many he did not even deserve the first one, yet here we are.

    I don't think it's unreasonable to expect the candidate representing your party to be a registered member of that party. Why would you not want to be a registered member if you want registered members of the party to campaign for you? If you don't want to be a member, run as an independent.

    I like Bernie Sanders and he is closer politically to me than most American politicians, although I still consider him to be right-wing when compared with many European socialists. However his supporters, those that supported Hillary, Jill Stein, Gary Johnson and others, have to chose between whether they want Trump to win in 2020
    or to unite around a candidate that will implement policies that will help all Americans and not just the rich ones, and in particular a candidate who will support the poor and the most vulnerable people in American society. The voting system used in the USA means realistically the candidate best placed to beat Trump will be the Democratic Party nominee so people need to get behind Democratic Party or by default they will be contributing to Trump's re-election.

    The two party system has a stranglehold on American politics. The only way an Independent can win is to run as either a Democrat or a Republican. Bernie caucuses with the Democrats and supports an agenda that holds to the Democratic Party's values prior to the neoliberal takeover of the party under Bill Clinton. Debbie Wasserman Schultz also said that the party is designed to keep out grassroots activists like Sanders because they consider them outsiders. They want a deeply entrenched establishment Dem to run, even if they lose.

    While it's true that the best way to ensure Trump loses is to rally around the Democratic candidate, that candidate will no doubt still benefit the rich and the military industrial complex. So we'll basically be trading a vulgar, obnoxious shitty president for a polite shitty president. It's why I remind people of the Democrats who've confirmed torturers and crony capitalists to Trump's Administration, as well as Dems who've voted with Trump to increase the military budget, illegally spy on Americans, and deregulate the banks. We were in more military conflicts under Obama than Bush. He implemented a right wing healthcare plan, made the Bush tax cuts permanent, engaged in mass deportations, and also increased illegal surveillance on Americans. So if Dems want people to vote for them, perhaps it's time they stop screwing their base and start supporting an agenda that the majority of Americans want.

    I'm not American, I'm British but my opinion is No. His policies or should I say lack of policies regarding LGBTQ people is disgraceful. And that's me being polite. :mad:
