She's a conservative.

No, she's a Democrat liberal and a liberal of the highest order. 

I guess because not only do Americans drive on the right, but after years of conditioning, they tend to think on the right, too... it's easy to get confused. Anything vaguely "left" or centre of ultra conservatism is dishonestly labelled "socialist" or "far left".

What?

This painting of B&H as far left is not going to fly with anyone but the most ignorant or poorly educated.

It's already flying and flying fast. 

Harris co-sponsored the unhinged $93 trillion Green New Deal, voted against the middle-class tax cuts, and opposed the U.S.-Mexico-Canada Agreement (USMCA) — a groundbreaking trade deal that protects the interests of American workers.

“After careful study and consultation with environmental and conservation leaders, I have concluded that the USMCA’s environmental provisions are insufficient,” she declared earlier this year, essentially arguing that the trade deal is not radical enough to earn her vote. In 2018, Harris publicly stated that America needs to “critically reexamine ICE [the Immigration and Customs Enforcement agency] and its role and the way that it is being administered and the work it is doing,” adding that the country should consider “starting from scratch.”

There is absolutely nothing conservative or even conservative leaning. She wouldn't even punish illegals that enter the country illegally, she wants to defund the police, abolish the EC and wants to eliminate Private insurance. Look how that's working out for Californians....

Far left? You Americans don't even know what that means... In any European country the Democrats would be regarded as a centre RIGHT party. Whether you agree with their policies or not, likening these people to communists is ridiculous.

Trump and his allies are slinging mud in desperation.

All this election shows is how even Democracy eventually eats itself.

Of course she was picked because of her color, nothing more, sad, but true. They weren't going to pick Warren even though she resonated with a lot of liberal women or even Klobacher was an even bigger star than Warren and Harris put together, Not Bernie who was popular with the left and the socialists, she had to be black and Harris is the perfect choice, NOT just black, but asian, far, far left and hates the 2nd amendment

Are you ok, in there, fella?

I think we all know why she was picked:

Non-white, non-male, hates the 2nd Amendment etc....

Oh, I think we can all see through that kind of statement.

Just like the narrative that she's far left etc. She's about as Marxist as you are.

"I believe he is going with the parents not American born." Like his father and wives, you mean?

4 ( +4 / -0 )

“nasty,” “horrible” and “disrespectful," Demonstrating once again that Trump has "the best words"... and that 300 of them comprise his entire vocabulary. Or is he maybe just projecting again?

@ mocheake

I believe he is going with the parents not American born.

Kamala's running mate just called for mandating masks for everyone in the country for at least the next three months. And they call Trump a dictator.

-9 ( +0 / -9 )

@Mickelicious - Yeah, the Donald only has a few Trump cards he can play because the economy is in the dumps and the coronavirus is raging, so it's either you're not American-born or you're disrespecting the flag or you are 'nasty.'

"She was nasty to a level that was just a horrible thing the way she treated now-Justice Kavanaugh, and I won’t forget that soon," Trump said.

Says the gentlemen who regurgitated the birther venom yesterday:

"But that's a very serious... you're saying that, they're saying that she doesn't qualify because she wasn't born in this country."
