  •  We absolutely need a populist. (0+ / 0-)

    The mistrust regarding the government is extremely well-justified, what with the imprisonment without trial, the assassinations by drone, the NSA spying on everyone, etc.

    It would be really awful if that got seized on by either a complete fraud (a Scott Walker-style Republican like Cruz) or a goldbug who would wreck the economy, like Ron & Rand Paul.

    We need someone who can honestly advocate for staying out of people's personal lives, ending the mass imprisonment and spying and similar abuses,... AND jobs and food for everyone.

    Unfortunately, Whitehouse doesn't seem to me to qualify.  He voted for imprisonment without trial, so unless he can prove that he's had a "come to Jesus" moment on that stuff...
