Diversity?

    Harris' 2020 exit leaves potentially all-white debate, causing consternation among Dems

    A couple of things come to mind.
    -If the "diverse" candidate cannot maintain a position to be elected, there could be a question about suitability as a candidate. After all, no support must mean something.
    -If what little support there is fails to go to the polls, it has to mean they don't care to be represented according to their wishes. License to riot? NOT protest, not demonstrate, not interfere; these days, those are simply euphemisms for riot.

    Votes matter -
    "At the bottom of all the tributes paid to democracy is the little man, walking into the little booth, with a little pencil, making a little cross on a little bit of paper --- no amount of rhetoric or voluminous discussion can possibly diminish the overwhelming importance of that point."
    Winston Churchill, House of Commons, October 31, 1944

    If those that figure themselves disenfranchised by a candidate's failure to thrive in the arena, I have to wonder why they didn't support the candidate when the chance came up. I MUST think a wish for magic, or divine intervention, or some other interjection will take over and put their choice, (if they even have one) in place to carry them.

    Diversity should mean the acceptance of others different from you. It should mean we don't care what sex, color, religion, orientation in terms of opportunities and that an outcome is based on the actions and not some sort of intersectionality of protected classes a person has. IMO even having protected classes is offensive to true equality.

    There are blacks, hispanics, asians, etc. that I would vote for, but I would not vote for them for that reason. The same goes for women and any other group you can think of. I vote based on their ideas, political philosophy, and track record.

    Diversity is a turd with sprinkles to make it look more appealing. The root of "diversity" and "divide" are the same. This is how the progressive left uses diversity. We were better off with the "melting pot" where everyone added to out culture as a whole and adopted the best of cultures new to them.

    Today's Diversity would have prevented jazz and rock music from all cultures except for black culture since that's where they originated. Whites would have been accused of cultural appropriation had they dared to play that music. No Elvis, Rolling Stones, Beatles, or Queen for a start. At least we would have been spared Kenny G...

    Hey! I like Kenny G. - well - at times, like standing in an elevator... :)

    Diversity in this country is nothing more than a Race Card being played by whichever politician, individual or organization that can benefit from it. It's lost its true meaning in this country.

    As for me, I would vote for whoever I consider to be the best and that might be Black or White, Man or Woman, Jew or Gentile - it truly matters not to me.

    BTW - great posts...

    Diversity in our politicians? Come on, this isn't about race or diversity, or anything else but putting the best candidates forward for the elections and hoping your horse wins by a nose! K.H is a WHORE, a crack pot race card playing wannabe who couldn't get elected junior dog catcher, AND she slept her way to every position she has held past primary school. That woman litterally f^%ked her way to the top, so the big question is...................Now What!

    Honestly, I believe this was all a sham, a side show so that Ol' MIke Bloomberg could slip in after the really nasty debates and go un challenged until the very end so that the people will choose him! This was all by design from the beginning!

    I admit I have his Christmas album and will be playing it this year at the big to doo at our house for the relatives. I figure it will help to put the belligerent drunks to sleep before they destroy the furniture.

    The only diversity I look at is WHO WILL PUT THE USA AND ITS INTEREST FIRST. Don't care if that person is purple with pink stripes if I believe they will Govern by the constitution and place The USA, the American Citizens and the National interest above all else. I don't believe for one second that is Donald Trump but DT is a damn sight better than the clown and freak show the DNC has rolled out for the 2020 election. As it stands I will vote Trump 2020 for the same basic reason I did last time..... Trump ain't Hillary.

    If that criteria is met, we don't need no steenkin diversity. To me, the interests of the nation trump the interests of splinter self interest groups of whatever stripe

    “Mayor” Pete has zero support among blacks and will not be President without it. Liberals try to deny it’s because he’s gay, but it’s because he’s gay. He won’t fair much better with Hispanics. These two groups are not “woke” on the matter yet. Given that black and Hispanic unemployment is lower than its ever been, Trump will pickup a lot of voters that have been historically Democrats. My opinion only.

    I get a kick out of all the white politicians that bash white people. If they really felt that way, shouldn't they step down? I guess they just want credit for good intentions, but it comes out stupid.

    That's one of the reasons the Democrats are hell bent on getting Trump out of office - can't have the black folk getting all uppity and leaving the Plantation for freedom. I think it's going to blow up in the Democrat's faces as we get closer to the election. Once awareness has started (and it has) it will continue at an exponential rate. I wouldn't be surprised to see Trump get a majority black vote in 2020.

    Won’t Putin have fun with this boy if he is elected. Sorry, I’m old enough that this still repulses me.

  17. I guess I have to agree with T. Rileys post. (Yeah I'm old too) Even though I have worked with and socialized with non-heterosexual persons, the thought of two men(?) kissing is revolting. They look as if they enjoy flaunting their "diversity". Yep, I edited my post.
