    Or, they're hoping to screw the election, win by pure fuckery, and then just get a pardon.

    I had become too accustomed to the pseudo-Left new style, whereby if your opponent thought he had identified your lowest possible motive, he was quite certain that he had isolated the only real one. This vulgar method, which is now the norm and the standard in much non-Left journalism as well, is designed to have the effect of making any noisy moron into a master analyst.

    Oh yeah I forgot the whole added dimension of European tankies spreading agitprop because they think the US collapsing into fascism would stop it from being imperialist. Somehow.

    The latest poll has Biden ahead in NC by three.

    538 has had Biden ahead in NC for months now, but +3 is about as far as he's been. While 270towin still has NC as a tossup (+3 is a small gap) they have Biden with 290 right now, and NC would be +15. Again, that would give Biden more EC votes than Trump had in 2016.

    NC would be a hard target. True, heavy Democrat campaigning in NC would have the side-effect of also hitting SC as well, whose race is as tight as Graham's butthole right now. And it could spill over into reinforcing Virginia's Biden lead as well. That could make it yet another "troll target" forcing Trump to spend time and money on a state he should already have locked up (SC) and one he desperately needs just to stay alive (NC). Trump took NC last time.

    Trump is on the defensive. He can't be everywhere at once. Forcing him to take a day or two to rally in NC or SC would be a boon for Biden.

    #BREAKING; An accidentally cut cable has caused the entire Virginia voter registration online system to go down on the last day to register to vote before election day.

    Here's what we know so far ⬇️

    WASHINGTON — An accidentally cut cable has caused the entire Virginia voter registration system to go down on the last day to register to vote before election day.

    The Virginia Information Technology Agency tweeted that a fiber cut near Route 10 in Chester, Virginia is to blame.

    "Due to a network outage, the Citizen Portal is temporarily unavailable. We are working with our network providers to restore service as quickly as possible," the Virginia Department of Elections posted on their registration website.
    So WTH is going on? Yes a coincidence of an accident or feeding into the hysteria, a holy crap moment.

    Obviously, all change is to be enacted solely through waiting until things are bad enough to warrant violent uprising to overthrow the bourgeois and seize the means of production or whatever. That’s how you ensure a more peaceful and prosperous world; periods of intense, bloody conflict punctuated by power-grabs in the vacuum of power. But as long as the rich aren’t able to fleece the little guy, pile the bodies high, right?

    ...he won’t be doing any of that violent uprising himself, of course, and of course whatever aftermath we just assume will be good and decent, right?

    If not, then another violent uprising is sure to set things straight! And if that one doesn’t work, well... third time’s the charm, surely!

    Coincidence or not, extending voter registration another day or two to compensate would very much be in order.

    Members of anti-government paramilitary groups discussed kidnapping Virginia’s governor during a June meeting in Ohio, an FBI agent testified Tuesday during a court hearing in Michigan.

    Special Agent Richard Trask was part of the investigation that led to six men being arrested and charged last week with plotting to kidnap Michigan’s Democratic Gov. Gretchen Whitmer. Seven other men face state terrorism charges.

    Trask did not name Virginia’s Democratic governor, Ralph Northam, during his testimony in a federal courtroom in Grand Rapids. He said members of anti-government groups from multiple states attended the meeting.

    “They discussed possible targets, taking a sitting governor, specifically issues with the governor of Michigan and Virginia based on the lockdown orders,” Trask said. He said the people at the meeting were unhappy with the governors’ response to the coronavirus pandemic.

    Trask did not discuss further planning aimed at Northam.

    The rise of dangerous, extremist right-wing domestic terrorism under Trump is unprecedented. He must be removed so we have a president who takes this threat seriously rather than plays to their votes.

    Oh yeah, and the Klan is making a comback under Trump, I guess. They're leaving "social visit" cards at the homes of Biden supporters.

    Because of course they are.

    Some people in Georgia waited 11 hours to vote.

    Georgia Voters Face Hours-Long Lines At Polls On First Day Of Early Voting

    One voter named Viola Hardy told the 11 Alive reporter: "I think people are just really ready to vote, and it doesn't matter how long it takes — we will stand in line to vote. ... We're voting like our lives depend on it."


    My hats off to them.

    Texas early voting starts today. Them voters are lining up already. Whether they are for or against Trump, the turnout is crazy.

    Do pray tell how voting for Trump or third party (which only helps Trump) is going to help "fix climate change" at all?

    The Democratic Party is not and definitely Biden is not going to bring any solutions to currently ongoing modern day issues, beyond removing Trump from office (if he wins the elections). It is going to be the continuation of the old status quo that saw people like Trump rising to power and liberalism lose it's support among the voter-base.

    Biden is de facto the choice of kicking the can down the road and hoping that someone else will pick it up another day.

    List of issues Biden is going to change or has a plan to solve:
    - Climate Change: No.
    - Police Brutality / Police Reform: No.
    - Worker Rights: No.
    - Healthcare: No.
    - Corona: Maybe, but probably ineffectively.
    - Wealth Inequality: No.
    - Corporatism and Cronyism: No.
    - Mental Health issues in the USA: No.
    - Drug usage: No.
    - Immigration: Maybe, if allowing more cheap labor into the country and more refugees in is the end goal.
    So, operating from one single source, Joe Biden's actual platform page, let's proceed; https://joebiden.com/joes-vision/#

    - Climate Change: https://joebiden.com/climate-plan/ and https://joebiden.com/clean-energy/ and https://joebiden.com/environmental-justice-plan/
    - Police Brutality / Police Reform: It has an element in here; https://joebiden.com/blackamerica/ but is primarily here; https://joebiden.com/justice/
    - Worker Rights: https://joebiden.com/build-back-better/ and https://joebiden.com/racial-economic-equity/ and https://joebiden.com/empowerworkers/ , over and above the various anti-discrimination platform points.
    - Healthcare: Yeeeep. https://joebiden.com/healthcare/
    - Corona: You said "Maybe, but probably ineffectively", which is both wrong (here's the "yes, definitely"; https://joebiden.com/covid-plan/), but also weasel-wording a refusal to admit that he's got such a plan.
    - Wealth Inequality: https://joebiden.com/infrastructure-plan/ and https://joebiden.com/two-tax-policies/ and https://joebiden.com/smallbusinesses/
    - Corporatism and Cronyism: https://joebiden.com/two-tax-policies/ again, https://joebiden.com/smallbusinesses/ again, https://joebiden.com/empowerworkers/ again (many platform elements speak to multiple issues, when they're related).
    - Mental Health issues in the USA: Literally a tentpole element here; https://joebiden.com/healthcare/
    - Drug usage: Yup. https://joebiden.com/opioidcrisis/
    - Immigration: And there we go; https://joebiden.com/immigration/

    Literally every single one of these issues is specifically dealt with, often in multiple ways, just in the official platform. You either have not even bothered to check Biden's platform before relying solely on your imagination to make up this bullshit, or you're deliberately lying about the facts to sow discord and chaos into the election for your own personal goals. You are not participating in good faith; you're pushing dishonest propaganda to mislead and disinform. There is no possible way what you said was a reasonable, good-faith opinion.

    If Biden wins, his first act should be to indict Trump.

    Obama messed up by not launching an investigation on the Bush administration.
