Nineteen Democratic presidential hopefuls descended on Las Vegas Saturday and made their case directly to union workers for how they would fix an economic system that caters to the rich.

Over the course of seven hours at the University of Nevada, Las Vegas, candidates from former Vice President Joe Biden to long shot Washington Gov. Jay Inslee took questions from public-sector employees about how they would rebuild unions, provide affordable health care to more Americans and undo the policies of the Trump administration.

America today faces a two-headed problem: economic inequality and housing inequality. The former has soared to heights not seen since the Gilded Age. The latter, as home prices spike in coastal superstar cities and lag in much of the country's middle, has become a main feature of our divided, winner-take-all geography.

The Democrats abandoned unions along with Republicans, after the unpatriotic, immoral, unethical Ronald Reagan fired the union FAA Air Traffic Controllers; that encouraged CEO's to off-shore/out-source American manufacturing to China. To hear them bloviate how they will "help" unions in the next election is utter BS!


The Democrats, like Republicans caters to Wall St. demands, having suckled the financial tit for so long they all bleed "Soylent" Green, toxic private Federal Reserve Banknotes, not worth the ink printed on them.


Believing the candidates promises pie-in-the-sky programs is not the answer to the self-created problems the country needs to resolve. Rectifying alliances while reminding adversary's there is a means to peacefully resolve difference so all benefit. Promoting fair/free trade where a responsible Soci[-Capitalist system provides responsible grown/made products are available at reasonable costs that shares the profit equally throughout the supply chain; where everyone benefits and not just a chosen few.


The only Democrat that seems to gain any traction is Pete Buttigieg. He has some impressive credentials that the current Socialist POTUS can't measure up to. Kamala Harris used her office to personally smear others while shagging her way though the California political system. Biden is too old and Sanders rolled over too easily for the Kill... er Hillary machine in 16.


Plenty of time to see what develops and other political parties Green/Libertarian etc are viable IMO.

'He pulled the wool right over our eyes and he's still doing it till this day," says 58-year-old Susan Cropper, who worked at a Carrier plant in Huntington, Indiana, for 31 years before the plant closed and she was laid off along with over 700 employees.
