I think it was Aaron who changed my mind about getting all money out. I think PACs must be dealt with separately from campaigns trying to elect candidates or pass bills. Look at it this way: on their salaries, both Mitch McConnell and Nancy Pelosi are both multi millionares. That should not be possible. This is something that must change.
There is still a lot of should
in that sentence. People have to have a reason to do their jobs. And the level of public scrutiny and/or notoriety that comes with these positions is not in anyway worth it if there is not substantial compensation for it. Would you
be a Senator for a salary that would not make you a millionaire?

I will say that given the amount of voter fraud 45 is attempting to encourage, you would be a fool to assume an obviously bogus result would somehow not be contested and eventually overturned. For that reason, there will not be any concession speeches that night, and that includes from 45. But you, of course, knew that.
This statement makes no sense. I am not talking about extremists I am talking about moderates. I don't see many Bernie Bros being kicked out the Dem party. They all believe the same thing. 70% taxation. open borders, no guns etc.
Ok, you need to work on forming your thoughts more coherently. You will never make any progress here —or anywhere, really— when your definition of 'moderate' is a normal person's definition of 'right wing extremist'.
So firstly, no, it makes perfect sense. But if you are a right wing extremist and/or an Alt Right sympathizer, then, no, you would not be able to have gotten anything from that.
Next, again no, you would not see Bernie's supporters removed from the Party. This is because there is no reason for this. The DNC has adopted approximately Ninety percent of Bernie's planks. Study up on Kamala Harris' play to what was once considered the further reaches of the Left Wing to see this.
Now if you are a Democrat that believes in fair taxation and common sense gun reform where we can still own guns like Joe Manchin you are not being represented by the Dem party and you aren't a wacky extremist. In fact you make up 50% up the electorate.
You do not know this, because you are not a Democrat, and thusly have demonstrated that you know very little about the DNC. This is understandable since your opinions are typically to the right of David Duke or Sheldon Adelson.
Most Democrats do have —and vote for— fairly reasonable taxation policies. Our goals center more around tax payers getting something out of the deal. Clearly, you do not favor that, but that does not make the DNC's general position unreasonable.
Gun reform is something we are also in line with about 90% of the general electorate on, so no controversies there either.
The people that have left the DNC are typically extremists in ways you not likely be able to recognize, leave alone meaningfully discuss. Ditto the garbage you guys throw out of the GOP. In fact, I would look for the latter to become more extreme as the GOP takes the upcoming loss as opportunity to Clean House of a lot of the MAGAs littering its ranks.
So again, if those are the 3rd parties you want, they do exist, and you will have the opportunity to vote in that direction.
