3. Though I don't support her candidacy at all, I'll definitely give Williamson props for the phrase

"dark psychic force of collectivized hatred that this President is bringing up in this country." And with that idea in mind I'd like to see more discussion in tonight's debate of exactly how much Trump has debased and damaged this country's soul. "Vote for me because I'm not Trump" isn't enough, but I'd really like to see them stop making angels dance on the head of the health care pin and speak out about having a positive, healing vision that's the polar opposite of Trump's "dark psychic force of collectivized hatred," and talk about big picture policies and how they differ from the GOP's and not from each others'. At this point I don't care whether Bernie's or Warren's or Harris' MFA idea is better or if improving the ACA is a better plan than MFA; I care about how nobody should have to do without health care for lack of money. The GOP doesn't want that - that's the dark force. I care that everyone should have access to the education they need and want, whether that's achieved by some "free" college (nothing is "free," btw) or all free college or student loan forgiveness. The GOP doesn't want an educated population except for those who can afford or cheat their way to it - more of the darkness. All of the candidates support women's reproductive freedom, a regulated but humane immigration system, immediate action to combat climate change, policies and programs to support racial equality, serious efforts to prevent foreign interference with elections, the restoration of good relationships with our traditional allies, and many other things Trump and the GOP oppose - things that if not dealt with will maintain and worsen the darkness Trump has brought and the GOP enables. That's what I want to hear tonight.
