    Don't you think it's a bit biased to throw out insults like that against someone? It comes across to me as if you aren't willing to acknowledge or let her do her story without being biased about it to begin with.

    Why go the extra mile to try and be hyperbolic about a few minor things that don't make her a picture-perfect accuser? That doesn't seem right to me.
    You can't go from Biden to Putin like that, without something being wrong with you.

    Also, @Rochana, have you read Miss Reade's Twitter? https://medium.com/@eddiekrassenstei...n-e4cb3ee38460

    I mean, even her friends are like, nah, she is seeking attention. I mean, she is even praising him until 2017 and 2018. Didn't change her story til Biden announced his presidential run. I mean, she even liked a tweet where Russia voted 380-3 to decriminalize Domestic Violence. She attacked Putin til 2017, then in 2018 attacked the US for their "impealism", meanwhile Russia is still occupying Crimea.

    She is an attention seeking idiot, that has changed her story a thousand times it seems.

    Yeah, I can't see that person's posts unless someone quotes them, but I'm pretty sure I know which of the categories I listed they fall into.

    The truth is either a Biden or Trump presidency will see large numbers of Americans die from treatable diseases and neglect, because of the continued persistence of private healthcare. Millions of Americans will also see their wages decline because of rampant social inequality. That's my only interest in this.

    I don't think people like you are much interested in any of that. I think your sole interest is tribal support for a specific faction of billionaires that actively work against American interests.
    Oh you hit post count 21, how cute, totally new member. I'm aware jonnysesnsible isn't from the US as we've had similar conversations in the past, genius--the difference is, he isn't trying to get Americans not to vote in their own elections. You either know the differences between Biden and Trump, which puts you in the first several categories, or you don't, which puts you in the latter, so either way, you have nothing of substance to add to the conversation.

    If there were any substantive policy differences then you and the other Biden supporters would be telling us what they are. You are not because they don't exist.

    The only significant differences are areas where Biden is more right-wing, such as Afghanistan and TPP.

    I mean feel free to prove otherwise but I've heard nothing about policy from you at all. What I heard from Jonny was some crap about trans people not being allowed to the military, like that matters....
    I'm still trying to figure out how you can say that Trump and Biden are the same to progressives. The data does not agree with you.

    It's odd how many "Bernie supporters" from foreign countries are on here trying to shill for Trump.

    As for the policy differences, that has already been provided by others, and ignored by you.

    Not "Trump is so bad" (we know), not "it is obvious they are different" (it isn't), not "you are bad for suggesting that", an actual substantive poiicy difference.

    Policy. Do you understand? Policy.
    It was literally already provided by me, as well as others.

    I guess reading isn't your strong suit. Hell, you even mentioned one, and then proceeded to ignore it.

    https://www.ontheissues.org/joe_biden.htm

    https://www.ontheissues.org/donald_trump.htm

    And for the party platforms:

    I accept your apology and retraction. Also, I accept your apology for ignoring the previous evidence that was given to you.

    Wow, you sure did a lot of reading in a short amount of time...

    I already did explain, in a previous post... and you ignored it. Don't blame me, because you are pushing willful ignorance in spite of overwhelming evidence.

    Oh, and I'm not a Biden supporter.

    Enjoy that evidence!!!

    So, you are ignoring the evidence? The first two are literally links to their stances on the issues, with citations. The second set is literally the party platforms to their respective parties. You asked for evidence, and it was handed to you. I cannot do your thinking for you, and apparently, neither can you. This is now the second time you've ignored evidence you literally asked for.

    What. A. Shame.

    Well, it's a shame you are unwilling to read the evidence you asked for.

    I guess there's not much that can penetrate your wall of willful ignorance. You are welcome for the evidence.

    broadly, not just with those at the top. We need an economy that prioritizes long-term investment over
    short-term profit-seeking, rewards the common interest over self-interest, and promotes innovation and
    entrepreneurship.


    How is that different from what Democrats believe?

    I could have posted 30 different extracts where there is no difference between the parties. What am I supposed
    to be looking at here?
    Once again, the evidence has been provided for you.

    And here I thought you wanted to talk about policy, and not rhetoric... I guess that was also a lie on your part.

    You just proved my point perfectly: the parties are essentially the same.
    No, you proved you are being willfully ignorant and intellectually dishonest.

    You switched the party, because you are being disingenuous. Once again, this is simply you being caught in another lie.

    All you've linked to so far are vague statements and quotations which mean, literally, almost nothing.

    Joe Biden saying he likes little kittens is not a policy statement.
    That has already been provided for you... twice.

    You are clearly not capable of refuting that assertion. I would quit embarrassing yourself.

    But but but...their rapist is better!
    No, the sources did not prove that, your attempt to lie and edit content proved you are a disingenuous liar.

    If it's your assertion, where is your evidence?

    https://www.logicallyfallacious.com/...urden-of-Proof

    Since it's your claim, I expect you to be able to show that their stances on things such as gay marriage, abortion, marijuana legalization, economic development, environmental regulations, global warming, minimum wage, health care, gun rights, freedom of religion, privacy rights, and immigration are all identical. And, I expect you to cite evidence for this.

    I'll be here, holding my breath.

    If Biden wins, there is no "fighting" him, as you well know.
    There is a progressive wing in the democrat party, there is no progressive wing in the gop. Which is more likely to help progressives?

    Crony capitalism has total control of the American political system. All those people protesting Trump now will go along with whatever bullshit Biden pulls as they did with Obama. Even if Biden does the same things as Trump. It can't have escaped your notice that Democrats are now cheerleading for an Afghan war started by Bush.
    This is lazy bullshit.
    If Biden loses, then that destroys the corporate establishment in the Democratic party and allows progressives to take over and make a permanent change for the better.
    In what universe? This is wishful stuff. Not based in reality.
    This could all be avoided if Biden actually implemented some progressive policies, but there is literally nothing significant you can point to and say "That is clearly better". No, trans people in the military doesn't cut it: no one cares.
    Ill just put the positions he agrees with progessives on.
    raise minimum wage. Paid leave. supports reperations. Against private schools. 2 years free college. forgiving student loan debt. Increase teacher pay.
    Abolish the death penalty. End cash bail. End coke sentencing disparity. Abolish mandatory minimum sentences. End Private prisions.
    Campaign finance reform. End new oil and gas drilling, offshore drilling and drilling on federal land. tax carbon emissions.
    Antitrust enforcement against large buisness. decarbonise agriculture. farm worker protections.
    Assualt weapon byback. Universal background checks. weapon register.
    Incremental ACA expansion. Citizenship via DACA. Increased taxes on the wealthy and corps to pay for infrustructure.
    Scrap past weed convictions. Increase capital gains tax. Wealth tax. Holding social media giants to account for content.
    Supports revised USMCA.

    That will do for now. So stop pretending the white nationalist in the white house who has been brutalising people home and abroad while also fanning stochastic terrorism is 'pretty much the same'. Its cretinous.

    First -- it was bad enough to get you banned and it mod-edited from your post so...yeah, maybe pause and consider that.

    Using a slur like that is not just insulting your target but also insulting an entire group of people. You are basically saying that he's so terrible BECAUSE he's part of that group. It's bigoted lazy school ground taunting and I believe you are both better and smarter than that. So next time, be better ok?

    Unless you are actually a bigot, which I didn't think so....but if so, then carry on I guess?
