Hey, kalmie, why don’t you find an article about the soul-crushing, idea-killing effect of the Duopoly on American politics?
Listen to the Jimmy Doré podcast. Or this interview with Mark Thompson.

Voted Johnson in 2016.

I think the Democratic candidate is better this time and the Libertarian is worse. Change my mind.
The only thing better about Biden is he’s NOT Hillary. He’s mush. Gonna be “handled” by the deep state or dead in a year.
Do you have an organization chart for the Deep State - so we can keep trac of the players?

IMO, the strength of Biden's candidacy depends on his VP choice so it's premature to try. Until then it's like comparing a ventriloquist's dummy to a thinking human. :D

Yeah, what could possibly go wrong with forced mail in ballots. :coffee:
In the City Council election, 16,747 vote-by-mail ballots were received, but only 13,557 votes were counted. More than 3,190 votes, 19% of the total ballots cast, were disqualified by the board of elections. Due to the pandemic, Paterson’s election was done through vote-by-mail. Community organizations, such as the city’s NAACP chapter, are calling for the entire election to be invalidated.

I held on to the both sides suck concept as long as I could and I can still understand a third party protest vote but anyone considering voting for Trump over a roadkill raccoon at this point is stupid and/or out of their fucking mind.

:nod:
One side is criminally insane (D) and the other side is criminally stupid (R).

Trump only looks somewhat good because the Donks have decided to embrace the opinions of a bunch of woke windsocks and follow their lead. :ohno:

Based on what little I know about Tammy, I like her. But will the woke left support a war-mongering Vet who lost her legs spreading US imperialism?

Nah, The Squat and the blm crowd will never stand for it. She might get a prime-time convention speech, though.

I think that your incel-like fascination with them leads you to attribute greater power and influence to them than they actually posess. Biden, and the handful of corporate persons funding him, desperately want to avoid having Stacy Abrams as VP, and theirs are the voices that matter in the Democrat party.

I'm surprised that her name wasn't in the mix from the get go, she's clearly ambitious and I don't see any boxes she doesn't check

This is an idea I can certainly get behind - the Atlanta Hawks are going to be opening their arena as a polling place for November's election, and help to staff it with workers from that arena.

IMO, I think this is great. Whenever there are issues with polling places and long lines, it's almost always due to not having enough venues to host polling spots and not having enough volunteers to man the polling places - i.e., it's almost always a local issue. Hopefully this helps to foster more interest and participation locally for folks, especially the younger generations, to get off their butts and start helping civically. :thumb:

There seems to be some Internet buzz now about a
“Unity Ticket” featuring Andrew Yang and William McRaven in the top slots. Theory is that those two would exchange ideas and swap spots every 4 years for 16 years. Supposedly a center-left/center-right alliance that is big among “ranked choice voting” supporters. Problem is that the train has pretty much left the station this year in terms of ballot access.

Did you miss where I bolded 'local'? Yes it is almost always a local issue. Almost always a local donk issue. Its not something of concern in conk run districts.

Yes, I’d take that in a fucking heartbeat over a Biden (or a Trump) presidency. :nod: :nod: I was referring more to the “changing positions every 4 years for 16 years), like we’re going to rewrite the constitution in the next 4 months. :lol:

Edit: Although, for clarity, I don’t look at anyone who’s primary campaign plank was Universal Income to be “center-left”. :roll:

Oh, and I can assure you that all the BLM/Antifa/Rioters/Protesters/Karens/AOC’s of the world won’t settle for a ticket like that either. :suspicious: :suspicious:
