    Because this race is so much closer than it has any right to be. I went to sleep fairly unsatisfied last night I'm hopeful now, but I have zero faith the American people will do the right thing at this point. There is nothing wrong with being worried.

    Again, the idea is popular. When you start getting down to brass tacks of how much it will cost etc., that popularity drops significantly. See Elizabeth Warren: Her M4A plan rollout gutted her campaign.

    Never said it was? Just that it was the most progressive state, which is largely is. That doesn't mean it's universally progressive across the board, it's not and never has been (remember Governor Schwarzenegger?!).

Gutting labor rights for the promise of slightly cheaper rides.
    The NAACP, sure. Again, I'm with you on that, and she needs to be replaced as the head of the CA chapter.

    But MADD? They've never been "lefties" or really, partisan at all. They're a single issue group: They want drunk drivers off the road, and they don't give a shit how it happens. They'll support liberal policies, conservative policies, corporate policies or anything else if it accomplishes their stated goal.

    Look at where we are not compared to pre-ACA

    Pre-existing condition coverage went from a rarity to a mandate, and enjoys massive support.
    Tens of millions more Americans have health insurance now, getting them into the system and ideally getting them politically engaged to improve the ACA.
    Annual/lifetime caps are gone, and that similarly enjoys massive support.
    Keeping kids on until their 26 is now universal, and enjoys massive support.
    Expanded coverage for reproductive health, minus religious institutions, also is a big improvement and enjoys majority support now.
    It caps insurance company profits and requires rebates after a certain threshhold, it just requires an executive branch willing to enforce it.

    What would happen under Biden? Look at his plan, which works to expand access to the ACA to even more Americans and improve the quality of coverage they have while working to reduce costs for drugs etc. That's another step closer to M4A, with an expanded government run insurance program, and the more comfortable folks are with it and the more they see it won't lead to "SOCIALISM!!! DEATH PANELS!!!", the more likely they are to support actual M4A proposals.

    Which they aren't doing now. They're only supporting the idea of M4A.

    Giving money to Republicans, ever, means you are helping Republicans win elections. Do you disagree with that? Would you ever give money to Republicans? Why not?

    With MI now called, all Biden needs is one of NV, PA or GA. That's it.

    The Lincoln Project was not running for any office and they didn't support any Republican candidates.

    It's literally been on the front page of every news website in the world on how it works. You fucking hover over it and it says stuff like "dis place is worth 10 of dem points" Don't play the victim card here.

    Heck, a lot of them are probably liberals, given that classical liberalism is right-wing conservativism.

    Their short-term goal was defeating Trump. Sharing that goal justifies aiding them in achieving it. It doesn't mean you support their long-term goals.
    This. Defeating Trump is priority number one. I would give up Senate and House to ensure his defeat. A shitty congress can only do so much damage. A completely unhinged lawless presidential administration headed by a would be dictator could destroy the rule of law and equal protection under it. Fuck, Trump made major headway towards that in just four years.

    Btw, NBC just called Michigan for Biden.

    Unless GA surprises me I don't think we will have a winner until tomorrow.

    Not quite, they're still counting (well, at least Washoe county is) but will only release the results tomorrow morning.

    They literally just said they're gonna use the money to resurrect the Republican Party, ie. on Republican candidates and their campaigns.

    If not that, do you think they will just pocket it? That's even worse. What do you expect them to do with all those millions of dollars they now have lying around that they got from Democratic donors?

    Yes.

    1> You're confusing "people who are actively representing the Republican Party as a candidate or working for said candidates" with "people who have traditionally voted Republican in the past but aren't going to be in this election". The Lincoln Project are the latter; describing them as "republicans" is reductive and misleading. They endorsed Biden and I'm sure most of them, if not all, voted that way. Political affiliation isn't a permanent thing.

    2> It really depends on what they're going to use the money for. If it's not in helping Republican candidates win elections (and the Lincoln Project was not spending their money there this campaign season), then no, your money is not helping Republicans win elections.

    Would you ever give money to Republicans? Why not?
    Nope. Because I'm Canadian, mostly. They're irrelevant, in the same way the rise of the Nazi Party in Germany was irrelevant to the average Polish guy at least. Until it suddenly wasn't, obviously.

    Am I right saying that based on remaining votes and lead sizes:

    Biden is guaranteed to win Michigan.
    Trump is is guaranteed to win everything else except Nevada
    Basically whoever wins Nevada wins the white house.
    Nevada is still totally up for grabs with 2/3 of votes yet to be counted and only 7k difference ATM.

    ?

    At which point Biden should take a play out of Trumps playbook that they already normalized and put in "Acting" roles for them bypassing them entirely.
    Since we can't call out Trolls and Bad Faith posters and the Ignore function doesn't actually ignore it. Add
    "mmo-champion.com##li.postbitignored"
    to your ublock or adblock filter to actually ignore ignored posters. Now just need a way to ignore responses to them as well.

    No. PA is absolutely on the table, and so is GA to a lesser extent.
