Bernie had a shitload more individual donors than Buttigieg, even though Buttigieg raised more. I'd say that speaks more to Bernie's popularity and support than Buttigieg's. I'm curious to know who donated to his campaign and by how much.
Yep, that is fair. :thumbsup

He's definitely more corporate-friendly than some of the rabble rousers on the stage. Easily qualified for both the debates as quick as anyone else did, though. A lot of people don't know him yet, but a lot of people who hear him speak, like him. He's basically the anti-Trump. Everything Trump isn't, Buttigieg appears to be.

I'm not sold on him 100% gung ho for everything he says, but I don't expect that from any candidate. His demeanour, the way he carries himself and his resume are all very impressive to me, though. He's my favourite of the field (that does not mean I make him the favourite to win :lol:)

:hat

Thought I was on ignore, Rudder? To address your Idiocy, yes they do. Especially when Democrats will confiscate and redistrubute their constituents and everyone elses monies via higher taxes, but not that of their contributors.

Why not just shoot them on sight? You already have the kids locked up in cages so they can't run away, why not just tell them they're getting showers and then pump some poison gas into their cage? Problem solved, right? MAGA!

You don't have to shoot them on sight if the wall keeps them out.

And yes, do shoot anyone trying to dig under or fly over the wall. That works. At some point you need to send the message loud and clear that breaking immigration law will NOT be rewarded.

Migration Studies of New York released a report highlighting current trends in migration statistics. The report, US Undocumented Population Continued to Fall from 2016 to 2017, and Visa Overstays Significantly Exceeded Illegal Crossings for the Seventh Consecutive Year, shows that the majority of illegal immigration is attributable to persons who overstay their visa versus those who cross the border without a proper entry process and inspection.
Visa overstays exceeded illegal entries as the source of undocumented migrants for the seventh year in a row. Illegal entries across the southern border also decreased in 2017. Mexican nationals accounted for less than half of these entries, though individuals from Mexico accounted for more visa overstays than any other country. This study shows that the majority of these individuals arrive into the US via air travel.




The wall would do nothing towards illegal immigration. Nothing but allow you to get your rocks off at the torture of little babies you sicko

That statistical change is recent and may well be an anomaly. Especially with the business at the border in 2019.

Either way yes people who overstay visas should be deported. Enough is enough.

Anyone who doesn't support Yang through the primary season will be permabanned...from the internet. We will be using the @Bart files and the worldclass connections of @Jay to ensure these consequences. Your arguments do not matter. Your feelings do not matter. You will all join the YangGang.

Billionaire Tom Steyer throws his hat into the ring. Running as a Democrat, I wonder if he'll speak to wealth redistribution? Maybe you could start with your own, Tom, instead of the working and middle classes? Oh, and impeachment. Please mention impeachment.

Steyer, a former hedge fund manager has funded political projects and Democratic campaigns for years. He has also become one of the most outspoken advocates for impeaching Trump. Launching Need to Impeach in 2017 to rally support for bringing impeachment proceedings against the president.

Sanders and Warren would make a great tandem...

And these time constraints are already annoying. The candidates would have more time to speak if there were less of them on the stage.
