Yes I do not want Donald Trump to be our next president. I believe that there are only two people he can defeat. Joe Biden and Kamala Harris. Currently CNN polls have Trump ahead 272 to 225.

Now I am going to ask you to do the impossible. That being think outside of your closed minded myopic thoughts.

We all know what a vile person Trump is. We all know he was a horrible president. Yet inspire of that Biden is currently way behind in the EC.

What does that say about Biden and his electability

Bullshit.

Again, don’t troll us. We know the LAST thing you want is for ANY Democrat to be elected, and you come here day after day to defend Trump.

You aren’t fooling ANYONE.

You are simply mad because I am not going to participate in your Alabama thread. So you are now throwing a temper tantrum.

Not mad at all. You just prove you’re gutless and that you support anything and everything your party does.

I guess I am wrong why that doesn't sound like a temper tantrum at all.

Just pointing out that you are too scared to stand up for your true beliefs isn't a tantrum. I think it's hilarious how you and Joe run away.

Again you have very little self awareness. As you refuse to give an opinion more than any two people combined. Unless that opinion is we are great and you are not.

Look, you’ve voted for decades to do away with Roe. Now that you got your deepest wish, you want to ignore the consequences.

The total breakdown in rational discussion on this board is indeed exactly why we there is considerable danger that we as a people might stop doing any of the things that this country used to stand for.

The liberals on this board are always fully capable of rational discussion. Our conservatives are not.

You are correct. Unfortunately, their version of disruption passes for discourse in the Boring Twenties.

I say: Maybe we should do something about mass shootings.

They say: liberal liberal liberal liberal liberal keep and bear arms liberal liberal liberal commie liberal liberal liberal

Rinse and repeat. Daily.

I have voted for both Republicans and democrats while you have voted only for democrats. Plus you believe that every democratic candidate in every election for the last 40 years was a better choice than the republican.
Which I find closed minded and bizarre.

Sorry, but not playing your games. That’s all you want to do, is play us. None of us will do that. You aren’t interested in having an honest discussion. When you start with “Biden has extreme dementia” and “Trump is really rich and a very successful businessman” there’s really no honest plane for you to go.

Again, not interesting in your games. Because you’ve proven for YEARS that YOU can’t do it. You’re just here to scream “BIDEN HAS DEMENTIA!” And “TRUMP IS RICH AND SUCCESSFUL”.

I personally believe that you know you can't stand toe to toe most of the time so you simply resort to attack mode. Then when the person strikes back you become the victim. It is how you ran Sam Lefthand off and he was a fellow liberal. But, he only agreed with you about 80pct so he had to be dealt with.
It seems the hard left demands 100pct loyalty 100pct of the time.....just like Trump

This is why Trump is leading Biden. The DNC is only promoting things that people who are going to vote for Biden anyway care about.
It's abortion and now Healthcare. While people are concerned about the border and gasoline prices. The democratic party had better wake up. I only hope the democrats have a huge turnout. Otherwise we are looking at Trump's second term.
