Some think so. I don't. Some think Joe Biden will fix things, I don't. There were candidates who wanted to fix things, Democrats picked Biden.

The one candidate who wants to keep things the same.

True that, but that's what our fellow Dems want. I would like to see at least some movement to the left. smile

Yeah, okay...it doesn't solve ALL the problems, but it solves ONE BIG problem. The rest we are going to have to solve in a more direct fashion anyway.
This is a lot like switching to a new school when you know the school you're at now is dangerous.

TrumpCare..it's a lot like Trump University, except you DIE.

I'm not a Democrat. Near as I can tell Democrats hate me.

But they insist that I should vote for their candidate.

No matter who...

I think what you meant was the one candidate who wanted to return to "normal".

When a piece of apparel has a tear in it, you can throw it away and get the more expensive (and maybe better piece) replacement or mend the one you have. First order of business is to fix what Mr Trump and his Republican conspirators have ripped apart. VP Biden can do that. I suspect he would only hold office for one term and would step down for a younger more forward looking Democrat.

First things first

Meanwhile in other news, Hungary's parliament has just granted Viktor Orban full dictatorship powers a la an "enabling act"...it's the END of democracy in a European country.

Creeping Authoritarianism Has Finally Prevailed

It's clear that Trump is studying the methods of brutal dictators in an effort to fashion his own, and a compliant media operation that spins phony praises that are easily debunked in a free country is essential.

This is the Hungarian version of "The Enabling Act".
And right now it looks like Trump is firmly headed in Orban's direction, and the part that should make millions furious is the fact that if and when Trump DOES do the same thing, if he succeeds, Trumpers will agree that it was necessary. Think about that...so called "conservatives" will CHEER at the death of the democratic process and applaud Trump ruling by decree.

Now watch as dozens of them will jump on the thread to make snide comments and claim that "it can't happen here"...until it does.
Again, when it does, they'll call it ice cream and cheer for Trump even harder.
Who needs democracy? Democracy is something Democrats like, and everyone knows we're all secret communists. Or worse, according to Joe Rogan - NEOLIBERALS!!

"Three cheers for dictatorship!!!"

But God forbid we kick him out of the White House - because Biden isn't perfect!

As Trump supporter Aunt Lydia is literally the one who had Janine's eye removed.

And Republican voters would just go along with that? You gonna tell them to vote blue no matter who too? Democrats have made it pretty clear that forward thinking candidates are not welcome in the party. Younger candidates haven't fared all that well either.

Normal, my friends, is gone. Gone with the wind, gone like yesterday.

Biden is not going to make America great again.

Oh, kick him out by all means! I'm not telling you who to vote for or why. I'm just saying that Biden will be a failure and will be replaced by a Republican in 2024.

If Trump is re-elected he will be replaced in 2024 by a Democrat.
