Sound familiar?
Seems you advocate that. See the first post where you jumped in. You made a totally unsubstantiated, opinionated statement not supported by any facts.

So you vote based upon (1) rank speculation with no factual support; and (2) a vague sense of whether you think a candidate wants to make our country a better place, untethered to specific policy? The road to hell is paved with good intentions.

So you are self-diagnosing with some strange form of TDS? I obviously can differentiate between policy and intent. Can you? You make many self assured sounding posts which are rarely, if ever, backed up with any source material.

An intelligent reply to my original post might have explored why I wouldn't trust Sanders or Booker as compared to Warren and the others. Instead you went for character assassination. My bet is that you are an attorney.
