    Sad that you need mainstream media opinion writers to decide your future. I think for myself and it's pretty obvious that were better off with the outsider. Let Biden in and raise taxes on us though. I guess u wont be affected??

    so raising taxes on small business owners post-pandemic is a smart move? how would that not indirectly affect the middle class?

    Why did you lie and call Biden a "Segregationist"?


    Trump is the only modern politician to use Segregationist rhetoric.

    Having a plan for the pandemic and post pandemic and a means to fund it will help small businesses a lot.


    They are currently dying under Trump's stupidity.

    Biden clearly is the most race pandering between the two. His record also proves that. But how is locking the country down a plan? Biden wants us to live in fear and surrender. Which has proven to be a bigger problem to the economy and mental health. How will raising taxes on small businesses help them " a lot" . Long term we need someone who has a good track record on the economy. Name one accomplishment Biden has in 47 years??

    Just because Biden isn't racist, doesn't mean he is race pandering.

    Hong Kong is a very densely populated region that is very close to the origination of COVID19. It would have been a likely hot spot for the disease... but they immediately issued a mask mandate (that was followed at +97%) and used technology to test and track for the infection.

    See the difference?

    Trump has the literal worse track record for the US economy... and Biden was apart of the Obama/Biden Administration that recovered the US economy after the Great Recession of the Bush years.

    So, we are in agreement. We need Biden to beat Trump for the sake of the economy.

    Biden has a lot of historic and great legislative victories he can be proud of... legislation that helped end genocides and gave power to 9/11 victims among them.

    I don't understand how anyone who's actually paying attention can want 4 more years of Trump, he's been horrible for this country in so many ways. People really get misled by conservative media places nowadays, I dunno how else they could be so misinformed and actually think Trump is good.

    I'm also kinda sick of hearing people talk about how boring Biden is, or they don't like Biden or whatever...honestly who cares what you think of him at this point, fact of the matter is if you care at all about the future of this country, this planet, democracy, healthcare, the economy, dealing with covid, race relations or just about anything else, Biden needs to win. So people finding him 'boring' or whatever doesn't really matter in comparison.

    Also I'd love to go back to a president who is 'boring' and you don't have to constantly be watching the news in fear of what's next, or don't have to worry bout being laughed at by other countries.

    Other counties dont laugh ar us, they fear us. Remember when Trump killed the world's top terrorist when Obama and Biden refused. Maybe that's one good reason we think hes more of a leader? I dont think Biden would be boring at all. Especially to the military industrial complex. Who you guys think Biden will be forced to attack first? Iran or North Korea?

    That happened under Obama and there really isn't much evidence it happened at all. Several military officials will say Trump is way tougher on Russia then Obama.

    I’m so confused as to why people view what the DNC as corrupt. That’s what political parties do. They coalesce behind who they believe is best fit. Buttigieg, Kobuchar etc. didn’t have a pathway to the nomination so they dropped out & endorsed the candidate they liked most. Maybe they would have endorsed Sanders if...you know...he was actually a democrat or worked within the framework of the Democratic Party more often. This is what makes AOC so remarkable because she understands this. She doesn’t s--- on Democratic leadership 24/7. She acknowledges that she won’t get everything she wants but she can still slowly pull the party to the left.

    regardless of all that though, it was no secret that Sanders, historically, has struggled in polls with minority voters. It should shock no one that he lost the states with more racially diverse populations.

    To be fair I don't think I called them corrupt. I think the whole thing was orchestrated by Obama and Jim Clyburn and although it was extremely machavellian(nothing wrong with that btw) there was nothing "corrupt" about it.

    no, i do know lol. both anecdotally and based on like 10 verifiable links i shared. but hold on, so you're playing the 'lol we Cant Determine Anything' card, a classic, and yet

    ? like cmon, i know this is tongue n cheek but ur hurting the children lol.

    heres the thing... it does lol. read each link, each one is a diff kind of outlet w a diff kind of story, all true, all facts.

    yah but not all opinions are created equal. stupid ppl can believe stupid s---, but that doesnt mean it cant be disproven or discounted.
