Tulsi Gabbard is to Ron Paul as Nachos is to Cheese

Apparently, all you need is a good foreign policy to please Ron Paul. Tulsi is impressive but Ron Paul ran on a good foreign policy and that didn't get him anywhere. A good domestic policy wins more votes.

Climate change: Mandate an end to the use of fossil fuels for electricity by 2050. Ban fracking.
One of the most aggressive pieces of climate change legislation in Congress, Gabbard's "OFF Fuels for a Better Future Act" would mandate a dramatic move away from fossil fuels. The plan would require electric utilities to use 80 percent renewable resources by 2027 and 100 percent by 2035. In addition, it would set similar goals for car emissions, mandating zero emissions by 2050. Finally, it would end all subsidies and tax breaks for fossil fuels and it would ban fracking.


What about the importance of natural gas and clean coal? Is she that stupid?

Education: Tuition-free community college for all and tuition-free public university for most families.
Gabbard backs Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders' proposal to cut or eliminate higher education tuition for most Americans. She would make community college tuition-free for all Americans, and four-year public colleges tuition-free for students whose families make $125,000 or less per year. The plan would pay for that tuition by imposing a new tax on stock and bond trades.


Free college will only create more unemployed college graduates. Quality education isn't free.

Guns: Ban assault weapons and require universal background checks.
In Congress, Gabbard has co-sponsored bills that would ban assault weapons and require background checks for all gun purchases, including closing what is known as the "gun-show loophole."


Coming from ex military this surprises me but she's a liberaltarian. :doh:

Health care: Create "Medicare for All," a universal, government-sponsored health care system.
Gabbard co-sponsored a bill to create a government-run system to provide health care for all residents of the United States. That bill, "The Expanded and Improved Medicare for All Act," would pay for health care by increasing taxes on the wealthiest 5 percent of Americans, create a progressive excise tax on payroll and self-employment, tax unearned income, and also tax stock and bond transactions (not just the gains from those transactions).

Social Issues: Protect abortion rights. Ban discrimination based on sexual preference, identity.
Gabbard believes that abortion should remain legal and accessible. She voted against a proposed ban on abortion after 20 weeks of pregnancy. She supports the legal status of same-sex marriage, opposes attempts to bar transgender Americans from the military and supports laws to ban discrimination based on sexual preference.

In both of these areas, Gabbard has changed her position since she entered politics at age 21. She was initially anti-abortion, or opposed to increased abortion access. In 2004, she opposed a bill allowing civil unions for same-sex couples in Hawaii. Hawaii's LGBT caucus withheld their endorsement from her in 2016. She has said that her time in Iraq sparked soul-searching and led to changes in her beliefs.


Where's her flip flopping calling card? Extremism at it's worst. Nachos is to cheese... :quesexclaim:

The Obama,s just gave what will be the classic proof of "Global Warming" by buying an ocean-front mansion for $52 million. I couldn't make the point any better then they do!!!!
