    The more part... by adding a gradient, you are expressing another layer of bias. It would be a mistake for me to imply that, without such an explicit confirmation.

    But, how does lying on a poll, instead of selecting what makes you happy... make you happy? Remember, you are trying to prove a greater point than already expressed in polling... for whom? It can’t be you... you already know it’s wrong.

    Ugh, why GA? I suppose those poll workers deserve some rest...

    ...but that was what I was looking forward to all day. The question now is whether I sleep or wait for PA?

    I'm interested in playing enough of them to get reelected. I do not see politicians (of any side) as the most unselfish people....

    They should have people working in shifts for this shit, honestly. I know they're in a tough spot because the Republicans made this all an ordeal.

    You hold a view that they are callously manipulating the masses for personal gain, rather than entering into public service out if a genuine desire to do good work?

    Why would I try to make it more accurate, when I have the desire to make people not trust them.

    That’s projection on your part.

    Others aren’t as terrible as you are and that’s something you people need to learn.

    Oh there may be a few that are not in it for power, but I am not convinced that is the majority.

    I get being frustrated at them, but... remember, they have a super repetitive task that there’s a good chance they’re volunteering to do on an enormous backlog that decides the fate of the United States and in many ways, the world, all while being hounded by the media and not-so-subtly harangued by the trumpkins.

    Because you just said you have a desire to make your self happy... that’s putting on a show for others, instead of seeking your individual desires.

    I'm going to disagree, at least initially.

    I don't think people get into politics out of a desire for power or wealth (with some exceptions obviously), but I'll concede that a great many can be corrupted over time as they seek to maintain the power they never sought, but now have.
