For Dems to win in 2018 who do you think should lead them? I liked Bernie, he had some fans over here in the UK like Corbyn. However a lot of people on the far right feel empowered much like over here, plus there is a lot of people not voting so who do you think should lead the Democrats now?

The party’s “leader” in non-Presidential elections is the head of the DNC, which is Tom Perez. There’s some figurehead-leadership positions, and the presumptive Speaker of the House may take a campaigning role (that’s presumably Nancy Pelosi). It’s only in Presidential election years that the figurehead is a strong enough standard-bearer to realistically be called the leader of the party as well. It’s the American system–the opposition party doesn’t usually doesn’t have a leader in the Corbyn sense, someone who’s an officeholder and clear party leader at the same time.

Also, I don’t think Dems winning in 2018 has as much to do with who’s “leading them” as how you define winning.

Under inspired, brilliant leadership, the Democrats will take over quite a lot of state governorships, and maybe a few state legislative chambers as well. They’ll also have a very remote chance of taking the House, and will lose only a few seats in the Senate.

Under lackluster, middling leadership, the Democrats will take over quite a lot of state governorships, and maybe a few state legislative chambers as well. They’ll also have no chance of taking the House, and will lose about six seats in the Senate.

And that’s all assuming voting functions more or less the way it should. As you said, the far-right feels very empowered and has had great success with overt voter intimidation and voting-related violence in the past.

Thanks for this explanation!! Really interesting how it works in other governments. Didn’t realise this is the way it works

Again, just saying “it wasn’t that blue” doesn’t help the project any. Saying that you have a Korean DVD doesn’t mean anything. Also, I fixed the excess of strong cold blues in my latest update, so I’m not sure how it can still be blatently too blue to you.

Sorry dude I’ve missed your test9 photos, yes of course it is looking really good. Actually this is similar to my old DVD… I do appreciate the effort you put yourself in. Especially when checking out Arnies Robot eye screenshot. Yup it does look good

Last web series/tv show seen

Finished watching American God, damn what a headache that was. Never read the books but I enjoyed the movie. Interesting to see how the Jinn was developed, we grew up with jinn stories so always interested in the way this is told from another point of view. My favourite scene which i always rewatch on YouTube is Gillian Anderson David Bowie scene. The whole scene and music just works sooo well. Can’t wait for season 2 now 👍🏽
