    Cap-and-trade as well as carbon credits.

    immigration

    The more the merrier, we should be making it as easy as possible.

    The only 'strain' is getting people to put aside the preconceived populist notions they have in their head. Ideas like immigration being harmful or climate change not being real. Everyone seems to thing they know more about immigration's impact than an economist or more about climate change than a climate scientist. Making people realize their own ignorance and to shut up and listen to experts who have dedicated themselves to studying these matters is the real challenge.

    Trump should be a wakeup call, and should be inspiring hard-left movement, in all elections

    But he isn't. Just because people don't like Trump doesn't mean they must like the thing that is as far away from Trump as possible. There is no reason why there shouldn't be any turn to the far left. I wouldn't call Beto a "short reprieve from things getting worse" and I would be thrilled to call him president.

    only a leftist movement can fix the problem

    Bullshit. Don't state your political leanings as universal or fact.

    Fantastic! I really hope he can carry momentum forward and be a real competitor while maybe taking the lead come debates. I'm glad we have someone in the race who can bring a voice for the moderates of the party.

    Finished Akame ga Kill! this weekend and by the end of I just felt like I was watching out of obligation to finish it. The formula became predictable and who was going to die became obvious after the first few times it happened. Really became Death Flags: The Anime by the end. First half was well done but it didn't feel like it had anything interesting to do or say by the second half.
