    Disappointing.

    I enjoyed the old thread. Getting a nice cup of coffee and settling down to read the latest comments and mentalness from the day.

    Sad.

    The old thread is my crowning achievement on WC. I made a politics thread that didn't get closed for a year.

    So....

    What do you all think about people calling on Oprah Winfrey to run for President after her Golden Globes speech?

    She would have a really good chance, no doubt. Everyone seems to love Oprah.

    Maybe she'll give us all free cars...

    I thought her speech was powerful but asking her to run is crazy. I would hope that the next US president has a politics or law degree, tbh.

    That said she's a better candidate than anything the democrats are readying (nobody). If the Dems are going to fail into 2020 it's because they aren't offering proper alternatives. All they're doing is saying how bad the other guy is.

    Very poignant point to make, the dems can't go into 2020 and just field anyone because they aren't Trump. That simply won't work.

    I doubt it will happen, but it would be very American for a Presidential election to be disputed between Trump and Oprah. I imagine it would be something that would be studied for centuries afterwards as the dangers of celebrity and populism, or it could shape the way American politics is approached from here on out.

    If I was a strategist for the Democrats I don't know if I would be looking beyond Michelle Obama at this point.

    The frustrating thing with the democrats is they have an ideal candidate in Bernie. He's got people motivated to vote for him like Trump has, and doesn't have the stench of establishment Democrats that Clinton had.

    All I know is I'm voting New Democratic Party in Canada next election. I'm tired of the Liberal/ conservative flip flopping that has plague my Country.

    If Jagmeet Singh leads Canada next election, it will be ground breaking for our nation. He will be the first Sikh as Prime Minister. The guys a lawyer and a martial artist. Hopefully he leads the NDP like Jack Layton did.

    This is him taking care of a racist heckler. Ignorant loser assumed he was Muslim. It's a tad long but you can skip around. Most of it is within the first 5 minutes

    Look at this showoff having reasonable candidates they can get behind.

    Meanwhile in Britain...

    On an unrelated note, I've yet to meet a Sikh person who wasn't chill as fuck.

    Re: The Fresh and Civil Politics Thread

    My gf's ex-roommate and hubby are Sikh. The most amazing human beings I know. Not without flaws, but just truly caring. I love what I've seen from Signh so far. But it will depend on the specific candidates are available and what the party platforms are. It will likely to be either NDP or Liberal for me. I don't love what the Liberals have done in a lot of ways, but its been an improvement from the Conservatives, who quite literally targeted my occupation to be fucked over as severely as possible. So fuck them. Even though the new PC leader is a local boy.

    Oprah is a wonderfully well spoken lady. She's been tremendously successful -- business, writing, television. That doesn't inherently qualify you as being capable of running a country.

    I would love to see Oprah as a cabinet member, but I think to be the President of the USA, someone with a wider variety, and different set of experience is required.

    I'd vote Oprah as president. A successful powerful black woman would be great to see in charge. And she's popular and good hearted.

    She's smart too, and isn't a corrupt politician. Not being a generic politician is what got Trump elected. Except instead of a corrupt politician we got a corrupt big businessman, which is even worse.

    Oprah isn't like that. She's rich and successful but she's good minded. She'd get the votes for everyone wanting Trump out, she'd get the black community, she'd get the females, she'd get the young liberals.

    The only ones she won't get are the racist sexist bigoted rednecks who won't vote anything other than their beloved racist Trump. Plus she doesn't have any dirt for Trump to do the whole smear job on here.

    Joe Biden, Oprah, The Rock. I'd love to see any one of those three in office. In that order.

    Yeah. It couldn't be that they disagree with her politics or beliefs.

    They are obviously racist, sexist, bigoted, rednecks.

    Throwing the racist word around like this dilutes the word and de-sensitizes it to people.

    That word should be used wisely and sparingly.
    ---------------------------------------------------

    I think it would be funny to see a lot of people who put down President Trump for not having any experience but would support Oprah.....without any political experience.

    I don't think the Dems are in too bad shape right now. Obama was a pretty obscure name up until about a year or 18 months before he announced he was running.

    I think Bernie as a candidate would be a mistake because of his age.

    He is still likely to win but you open up that age argument that opponents can use against him.

    Dude is gonna be like 78 in 2020.
