    Well the scary part is it's this close with Trump. Yes, we can comment on Trump voters but imagine getting someone like Trump who is competent. By competent I mean somewhat intelligent and not a moron where he can be a despot dictator, bigot, racist and support white supremacy w/o saying all the stupid crap. Staying off Twitter and not admitting in every interview that he is doing a crime.

    Republican Twitter can go eat a dick for all I care.

    You'd think it'd be the deaths, the unemployment, the recession or the socialism.

    Someone like Tom Cotton? That man sounds like the next guy up for the GOP and he scares me.
    The MF has been impeached. Now he needs to GTFO.

    Based on both states' recent announcements, we should see both MI and GA today.

    Honestly?

    I think it’s because he has an R next to his name.

    What happens for Senate majority if both Georgia seats go into a runoff? Does the majority leader change again when that election is decided? I would assume so, but.. can't find anything on the procedures. Is the leader appointed for an entire session?

    The republican base doesn't want that though.

    They want 100% prime Angus beef crazy.

    The candidate that will say out loud all the crazy racist uncle things they want to hear.

    Runoffs happen before the January swearing in IIRC

    Well it would be but they're being primed by their dear leader to go after anything connected to the vote.

    From what I can find, the runoff is January 5th, and Congress seats January 3rd.

    do you even know the definition of the words you write?
    Since we learn about our history here in Germany instead of repressing it (*cough*), I know a lot about fascism, yeah...
    We Germans were pretty much the first that told you about how eerily similar Trump's administration is to the first years under Hitler, because we know a lot more about the Nazis than you do.

    Could be, but i think the pissing off the libtards plays up to trumpism that I'm not sure someone not bombastically tweeting up a shitshow or daily calling into fox with wild shit would capture.

    I know @cubby is going to come here and scream at me again, but if the primary numbers were indicative of voting, then why the fuck was Harris the VP nom and not Sanders or Pete or Warren, who all had more delegates than Harris who had none?

    Biden may still pull this out and hopefully he does, but regardless, Dems better change their fucking strategy going forward.
    You have no idea why Biden won the nomination. Not going to scream at you here, but come on - it's beyond ridiculous to claim any one reason gave any one candidate the nomination. And further beyond ridiculous to say you know why.
    #TRE45ON - Trump's idiocy is refreshing its duration, but it doesn't stack.
    Edit: I think it's stacking now.

    Biden can win with Wisconsin, Arizona and Pennsylvania - call it the WAP coalition

So some real fundamental changes on the way the gain is distributed to non-stock holders and few billionaires is needed, otherwise as I said there is no incentive to pay high taxes for an average Joe.
    The incentive is not to go broke when your medical bill is in the tens of thousands. Or you're still driving through collapsing infrastructure. Or the air and water you breathe and drink aren't clean. Or your chance at getting a quality education is simply out of reach because you can't afford it.

    I will never understand how paying a little more in taxes (if that even was what would happen) is the worst thing ever. I mean, if we're all paying it, it's all relative and at least you gain way more than you are currently getting now.

    But again, people would rather light themselves on fire than to get a better life, I guess. And then still complain that their life sucks by voting for the people who keeps them in eternal misery.
