    Forgive my ignorance, but why the lovefest for a populist Democrat from the right leaning folks here? Is it her anti-interventionism, or her calling it The dnc stuff in the last election? She doesn't seem particularly aligned with positions some of you guys have put forth.

    Love the anti-interventionism policy, especially from someone who has a military background. Only-Nixon-could-go-to-China type of thing. Also, yes, I did greatly respect her calling out at the DNC and the Clinton cabal. It was very early in the primary race and it looked like Clinton would win in a walkover. She had the moral courage to speak the truth that the fix was in. If Clinton had won, her political career would have been over but she did what she thought was right. Her economic policy is problematic for me, but I supported Sanders last time because of this anti-military adventurism policy even though I find his economic policy to be laughable. Never going to get everything you want in a candidate (especially as a weirdo libertarian) so I guess I am prioritizing the integrity and the isolationism.
    Edit to add: I do think she is jumping the gun here a bit. I was hoping she would run for Gov of Hawaii in 2022 and get some executive experience and then run in 2024 or 2028.

    Good points, nots. I get it. I admire her integrity too, and also agree she may be jumping the gun. But maybe not. We live in an age when being a political novice is not a disadvantage.

    Her anti-war cred will certainly have me listening.
    If DMT didn't exist we would have to invent it. There has to be a weirdest thing. Once we have the concept weird, there has to be a weirdest thing. And DMT is simply it.

    The question I have is whether she is actually running as a Democrat.
