One 2020 Democrat is NOT like the others on the Mueller Report…

Most 2020 Democrats are refusing to even acknowledge that the Mueller report has concluded that Trump is innocent of collusion and obstruction.

But one Democrat, Tulsi Gabbard, is going against the grain. Not only is she admitting Trump is innocent, but tells Democrats it’s time to set aside their partisan politics and move forward.

Here’s what she had to say:



Civil war? Paper ballots? I don’t agree with all of her conclusions, but I do find it interesting that she’s not running to the same place as most (or all) of the other 2020 Democratic candidates.

And this positioning of hers on this issue will certainly set her apart from the rest of the crowd. Whether that goes over well with Democratic voters or not, time will tell. I’m guessing she hopes it will give her more credibility 2020 counterparts, especially given that credibility is virtually non-existent among Democrats right now.

Also, she’s not polling very well and could use a big boost….

Well , taking her at face value, it’s good to see at least ONE Democrat come to her senses.

Is there some ulterior motive (besides getting all the votes she can for her 2020 run) that I’m not seeing?

I’m good with paper ballots, they still use them in my area. Even when they tried the computer ballots I requested the paper ballot. Also, they need to do away with “absentee” ballots or at least limit them to those who are actually going to be “absent” or physically unable to get to a poll on election day. NO to mail in ballots, too. If you aren’t sick, disabled or truly out of town and can’t get your sorry a$$ to the polls on election day, you don’t deserve to vote. Brutal…I know! :o)

Avatarjoyfulgiver I could not agree with you more. I voted absentee for over 30 years while overseas. Since returning I have always managed to get to my allocated precinct. It is a civic responsibility to be informed, and respect the importance of our duty to vote. I have never missed one since I attained eligibility.

A democrat is a democrat is a democrat. I think that she is so far behind that she needed to set herself apart from the rest but I do not believe her. Democrats are for abortion, Medicare for all, open borders, high taxes, etc., they are all interchangeable in their ideas to control us to where We, the People get screwed.

Perhaps it’s a case where she reads the handwriting on the wall. That being as far as the vast majority of Americans are concerned the democratic party is in their death spiral. The leftist MSM is dead to conservative Americans. We are galvanized and there is nothing they say between now and the 2020 elections that will change our minds.

“Securing America’s Elections Act, which empowers every state to use voter-verified paper ballots making it impossible for Russia or anyone else to change our election results…”

That will never fly with democrats, they are busy now passing laws such as “ballot harvesting” in CA and other such methods precisely in order to change (steal) as many elections as possible. If there is anything all democrats agree on, it’s that they don’t want any elections to be fair. There is no way democrats will ever agree to anything that makes our elections “fraud free”, they’ve designed too many ways to steal elections to ever allow voters to decide.

So paper ballots would eliminate Russian interference. But would it stop domestic voter fraud? I’m guessing, no.
Tulsi seems more resonable than the rest, but she’s anti 2A. So she’s just as much of a statist as Bernie, but with better hair.

1) No more early or absentee voting. To give ample time hold elections on weekends Friday – Sunday or perhaps a 2-3 day federal holiday. Then secure each days’ ballots separately. 2) Separate federal and state ballots/vote procedures and track whether a voter has voted federally by updating a national database using social security numbers to end multi-state or ineligible voting. 3) Federal ballots must all have the SAME standards of security and confirmation across all states. 3a) Paper ballots scanned AND stored for verification of electronic tallies. 3b) Electronic counting systems with high level security encryption and no connection ports. 3c) Continual monitoring of all voting machines and ballots by reps from every party on each ballot. 3d) Automatically recount securely stored ballots in alternate electronic counting machines to ensure consistency. 4) Federal voter ID paired with national database tracked via SS#, face/biometric mark, residential address and its associated… Read more »

I think we are talking about two different “electronic voting”. I wouldn’t even call what we have in many states as “electronic”. It’s half-ass electronic. Voting should be like going to ATM. When you verify your info and register, they give you an ATM voting card which can only be used once in an election and only in county it is issued for.

Still eminently hackable.

The one potential way to lessen the hackability would involve blockchain, but that’s still subject to a few exploits that are physically similar to ballot stuffing.

However, ballot stuffing of paper ballots is incredibly difficult to pull off on a wide scale. Whereas in electronic ballot stuffing, the same exploit is instantly repeatable over the entire network.

The problem for Tulsi Gabbard is that despite the fact that most Democrats are still sane they are generally apolitical and don’t show up for primaries. A very loud minority of Democrats have taken over the party. It’s actually possible that she can galvanize moderate Democrats and win the primary (which seems to be her strategy) because she’d be the only Democrat in that lane. She’s going to have to effectively motivate apolitical Democrats who’ve had enough of the radicals though and that is a very dangerous game because the radicals have the media in their corner.

Democrats will never accept results of investigations that do not go their way.

Granted, Gabbard is a rare exception here, but still…

Look at the Kavanaugh circus. Granted, they were never going to vote for him anyway (except Manchin, of course) but they don’t care about evidence. In their world, their accusations should be enough.

Tulsi is a lib Dem, no question. But I saw her interviewed on Tucker Carlson a few weeks ago where she had also stepped outside the pack (and was being slammed for it!). She was grateful to Tucker for allowing her to speak her mind openly.

Here is the appearance, you may agree or disagree with her, but I was impressed with her willingness to 1) sincerely speak her mind, even if it meant criticizing both parties, and 2) going on Tucker’s show, in a respectful way, to discuss it.
