  1. ^ That a good one. Biden is the most moderate of Democrats and Wall Street shouldn't fear him. Obama was more liberal (yet still moderate by our country's standards). Biden is not going to usher in socialism. Now, if he picked Warren as his VP and something happened to him, that might be a different story. I think it's going to be Kamala as VP unless they uncover something in her past when she was the Attorney General of California.
  2. I am in denial because of 2016. I can see if there is a rapid V-shaped economic recovery and a vaccine found for COVID-19, his numbers could recover enough to win by a slim margin. Not likely, but a possibility. Also, with so many people on the left calling for de-funding police departments, there could be a backlash against Democrats in the swing states. Although, if you look at the numbers right now, he and the GOP are going to lose in a 2008-style wave. But we're still 5 months away and lord knows NO ONE has a memory anymore for past events beyond 10 seconds.
  3. I hope hackers blow the case wide open, if it's true. All these bastards need to come down in flames.
  4. Our Republic needs to be saved. Can it be? I honestly don't know anymore. It feels like the end.
  5. Don't get to down, everyone. It's still possible that Donald botches the COVID-19 epidemic so badly that even Biden can win. Never underestimate the anti-Trump vote... https://thehill.com/homenews/campaign/485994-democratic-turnout-surges-on-super-tuesday In Virginia, the fourth most delegate-rich state to hold a primary Tuesday, more than 1.3 million voters cast ballots — a nearly 70 percent increase over 2016, when about 783,000 voted in the Democratic presidential primary. That surpasses a previous record set in 2008, when just under 1 million voters turned out. In North Carolina, turnout was up by about 17 percent over 2016 levels. And in Texas, at least 45 percent more voters went to the polls on Tuesday than showed up four years ago, according to an analysis of vote returns. Both VA and NC are swing states (VA less so in recent years), and Biden won both. I am not saying he'll beat Trump, but there are glimmers of hope here. If Democrats can sustain that enthusiasm then even down-ticket races will be affected and we REALLY need to win the Senate (maybe more so than the Presidency) if for no reason than the Supreme Court.
  6. And yet she still had more votes at the end. Arenas don't mean shit if those people don't go to the polls. Look at this year's turnout. Sanders is getting fewer voters to the primaries than he did in 2016, yet they still go to the arenas. Young people simply don't vote as reliably as older people. It's a mathematical fact.
  7. I don't think Biden OR Bernie bode well for Democrats' luck in November. God, I hope I am wrong. This is not an attack on Bernie as I would happily vote for him in the general election, but his voter turnout thus far in 2020 has been less than his 2016 showing and his supporters have even more reason this time to rally. But they're not. He can fill stadiums but not ballot boxes, even among young voters: https://www.usatoday.com/story/news/politics/elections/2020/03/04/super-tuesday-bernie-sanders-youth-votes-fell-short-compared-2016/4947795002/ Even Sanders’ home state of Vermont showed a lackluster turnout of young millennials and 'Gen Zers.' Only 10% of the state’s electorate were under 30 compared to 15% when he ran against Clinton, according to exit polls. And a similar trend was playing out in Texas where 16% of voters were between 17 and 29 compared to 20% in 2016. The common theme in all six states: Sanders fared worse this year than he did when he faced eventual nominee Hillary Clinton four years ago. I refuse to say that Trump is a shoe-in for re-election, and I hope people rally around Biden if he's the nominee, but this really does not look good.
  8. Nothing Bernie is proposing will happen, even if he wins. He'd need 60+ Senators and the House to get it passed, and the ONLY time we've gotten those numbers was after a huge financial crash (2008) that came right at the end of 8 years of Republican rule, so unless that perfect storm comes together for him, we will all keep dreaming. Not saying I won't vote for Bernie if he wins the nomination, I am just a realist about what's really going to change in this country. If Bernie won and we also got 51+ Democratic Senators, we would at least get a Supreme Court justice (and we NEED that now).
  9. I think it will actually take a major economic calamity for Trump to lose, and I say this as someone who thinks he's the worst person to sit in the Oval Office in my lifetime. Democrats are very fractured, and to date, I don't see an "Obama coalition"-style candidate among the current crowd.
  10. I agree. And I am starting to believe everything is being rigged. I actually think the polls are correct (or moreso than the results). How can this be happening so many places? I smell Putin.
  11. There isn't. People don't care. Well, enough of them anyway. This is America and this is how it will be until enough of us die.
  12. I think if the economy tanks, Trump's done for. However, with election security clearly not being addressed, who knows? I am not getting my hopes up again for a Democratic win. I can tell you if Trump wins in 2020, it's going to be a complete meltdown on the liberal side. The likes of which we have never seen. The Supreme Court will also be gone for our lifetime (if it isn't already) unless something radical changes and we add more justices or some of the conservative ones leave unexpectedly. I predict a great social rebellion in the mid 2020's if Trump is rewarded with another term.
  13. Amazon is destroying retail stores. I am not sure that's where people are getting most of their clothing, but brick and mortar is dying. Even lots of malls in the U.S. are becoming empty shells.
  14. I love how everyone thinks Bernie would've won against Trump. It's certainly possible. However, he couldn't beat Hillary. And then people say, "But the DNC sabotaged him!" Do you honestly think the GOP would've been fair (or their Russian bots)? If you can't beat the Clintons, you probably can't beat the GOP. Look at Obama, he knew how to do both. Bernie is a poor strategist. He barely spent money in the southern states during the primary which allowed Clinton to rack up delegates. He couldn't even win one of the most liberal states in the country - California - which voted close to dead last in the primary calendar. He had plenty of time to make his case, he failed. I'd also add that Bernie faced very little negative advertising during the primary (since Hillary was trying not to offend his supporters), the GOP would not have been so kind. Anyway, I hope he's learned from his mistakes in the 2016 primary. I guess we'll see. I am voting for whomever the Democrats nominate. Even if it's a ketchup bottle.
  15. I am not attacking you, but this is a straight-up myth. Hillary got almost 66 million votes in 2016. The only candidate in history to get more American votes was Barack Obama (both in 2008 and 2012). She received more votes in that election than Bill Clinton did for either of his Presidential runs, or George W. Bush. Hillary's flaw, and it IS a real one, was that she spread her operation too thin trying to sweep Georgia and Arizona. She should've focused on the Blue Wall state of Wisconsin, Michigan, and Pennsylvania. So can we stop saying she didn't inspire people? A lot of women were inspired, and crushed the day after the election. Let's not discount her completely.
