Look, this is just reality. Your party is trying to overturn our democratic government any way it can. They want to take us back to the days even before the New Deal. They tried to overturn a fair election. What's next? They aren't done. You can pretend all you want, but that's the reality we face.

We have had this discussion. It’s getting somewhat tired.

Not my party. I don’t own it, speak for it, claim it or control it anymore than I do those things for the Democratic Party.

Your opinions of what their “underlying evil schemes” involve and who supports what, belong to you. I don’t control what you think or believe nor am I here to change it. They are just talking points to me. You are welcome to them.

That’s the reality.

Your denial is your reality. It has nothing to do with what's actually happening in our nation today.

Being an extremist, you vote for the Republican party’s policies and its most extreme politicians.
That’s the reality.

I have what I need. But thanks for your concern.

As I said earlier, the electorate will get to weigh in on all this in November. Who knows how it will go? They will make up their mind who has what and who‘s got nuthin. I’m okay with that. It’s what elections are all about.

You sure have changed from predicting the election was already over a few months ago.

Oh. I still look at the polls. I haven’t changed my mind but all I have is an opinion. Not a crystal ball. But I’m just a single voter. What counts is how everyone votes on Election Day. Lots of stuff could happen between now at then.

You just quit bragging about it and laughing at us over it.

And considering what the Supreme Court and the Jan 6th Committee is finding, you shouldn't be betting on it. Things are in quite a change of flux.

Of course, there's nothing that the GOP and the Supreme Court could conceivably do that would EVER change your vote. You'll always vote GOP.

I got nothing to bet. No reason to bet. I’m perfectly fine with whatever the people decide. I understand my role. I’m just a single voter. My whole life isn’t about politics. There’s other things to life. Politics is and should be a small part of it IMO.

Not really. But believe what you want. Nobody other than you really gives a shit how I choose to vote and I fail to understand why that has you so concerned. Why the obsession? I personally could give a shit how you cast your vote. What you should worry about are the 140 to 150 million people out there and how they are going to vote.

Let's be clear: First, you have no idea who you're voting for, what their names are, what their record is. All you care about is that they have that (R) next to their name. And there's NOTHING they can do, nothing whatsoever, that will cause you to vote against them.

So all this stuff about what you believe in doesn't matter, because you're voting for the Republicans, no matter how much they want to do that's against your beliefs.

But I do see dark clouds ahead for the GOP this time around that could come together for the perfect storm against them. Oh, you'll whine about inflation and gas prices, but if you guys took complete control, you wouldn't do a damned thing about it. The first thing you'll do is impeach Joe Biden and Merick Garland. They don't know the reasons they'll give yet, but they'll make it up with the time comes.

But things are going to get worse for Trump, and everyone's going to have to take sides. And I think these troubles are going to hurt turnout, and we have lots of reasons to turn out heavy this time around. But we'll see. Lots of football left to play, and you have a tiny playbook with no options.

How the Supreme Court could radically reshape elections for president and Congress

The U.S. Supreme Court announced Thursday that it has agreed to hear a case next term that could upend election laws across the country with the potential endorsement of a fringe legal theory about how much power state legislatures have over the running of congressional and presidential elections.

The case, called Moore v. Harper, is centered on newly drawn maps of voting districts for North Carolina's 14 seats in the next U.S. House of Representatives.

Says the man that voted against a GREAT Democratic Senate Candidate. Instead you voted for a candidate that 100% supported Donald Trump in his criminal actions, and supports him to this date.
