Who says things like that? Politicians playing on the ignorance and gullibility of the people they are seeking the support of. Nothing of substance. Nothing real. Nothing worthwhile. Just pap.

Hitler no doubt said things like that. Lenin no doubt did the same. And narcissist political candidates seeking to gaun support by suggesting not another candidate is for the people like he or she is, which is ridiculous.

I hate senseless, empty, stupid, mindless campaign rhetoric.

And you listened to him, you're still listening.

Beware of candidates who say they're gonna' give you "free" stuff like "debt-free college," but what would one expect from the junior senator from one of the farthest left counties, (Alameda) in the state of CA.
She called border security a human rights abuse.

I don't vote for people based on their Identity.

I am not personally impressed with Ms. Harris. I did not like her actions during the Kavanaugh hearings, and I don't know much that's she's done up to this point to make her Presidential material. I guess we'll see as she campaigns what she thinks she can bring to the table.

Meanwhile, IMO she is going to depend heavily on the fact she is a woman and Black to get herself elected, much like (again IMO) Hillary was depending on the fact she was a woman and "it is my turn" kind of thinking when she ran.

I know how you feel, the president makes me feel that way too every time he opens his mouth. Like the other day declaring victory in the rose garden. A campaign speech.

Despite the fact that she is a far left socialist, and even before I learned of her vision for the country, I ruled her out after the Kavanaugh hearing.

Such high drama walking out of the hearing...and her heinous line of questioning Kavanaugh as though he were a felon pleading for parole, turned my stomach.

Yes. He does the same thing. That does not make empty rhetoric any less disrespectful toward the listeners just because Trump practices it also.

My question for Harris is: If you are "For The People" then please explain how you will be for Americans who are for the second amendment, pro-life, against big government, against government run healthcare, and other such conservative ideals. If you are going to represent these people and be their president then what policies will you favor that represent them? Hillary had a campaign slogan of "Stronger Together" but all that really meant was that liberals were stronger together. Everyone else was a deplorable, racist, bigot, and misogynist.
