Will Tulsi boycott the coming debate?

Tulsi has sent out a message to supporters and interested parties to solicit input on whether or not she should boycott the coming debate to draw attention to the ways the DNC is subverting democracy (my words).

I wish FDR hadn't run for President

It was really irresponsible of him to run when he had polio.

Lesser of two evils. Oy veh! What a choice: will you take hemlock or arsenic, Socrates?
