There's got to be a black guy around here somewhere who he can blame

He could try and save human lives.. eh, no.  He can't.  He literally can't.

If you live in a swing state, might I suggest that you vote as if it might matter. It probably won't, but it'll at least make his foreign backers have to work for it.

He was out of frame on the shot that went viral. Look at his face as he tries to make up for not standing and applauding in a timely manner. Has look on face like glorious days of Stalin; never be last to stand, never be last to start applauding, never be first to stop applauding, never be first to sit. Probably in Gulag now. Knew risks. Let crash.

Were you not here for the umpteen zillion Democratic primary threads? If there was an approved set of views that were disseminated by every Farker present, I never got the memo. We're good enough at cannibalizing each other that I don't think "echo chamber" is a fitting descriptor.

Does it get a little crass in here from time to time? Yeah. But this is also an Internet rest home for nerds, alcoholics, the maladjusted and people here for the squirrel balls and stories about Florida Man and his wacky bath salts shenanigans. I feel like we punch way above our weight in the general level of discourse here.

To people with a deference-based political philosophy (e.g. American conservatives), any failure to defer to them is felt as an unfair and irrational insult. Equality for others is seen as oppression of themselves. Tolerance of others' beliefs is seen as intolerance of their own beliefs. Others' right to disagree with them is seen as censorship of themselves. If their boot is taken off your throat, you're tyranically taking away their right to stand where they like.

Having known a few people like Trump - you know, self-centered assholes - the fact that he is even sort of, maybe, possibly acknowledging that he isn't as popular as he thought is HUGE. People like him never, not for an instant, have a moment of self awareness. 

God, if my ex-father-in-law ever had a moment where he understood what people thought of him, he would have an aneurysm then and there.

Dammit.  I made a pact with myself a few years ago to stay away from the Fark politics threads.  I got sucked into this one because I found it on the Commented tab.  Stupid me, I wasn't even considering this would end up on the Politics tab.  That's my mistake, I should have seen it coming.  It could not have been more obvious.

Please forget my previous posts.  I do not want to have anything to do with the Fark politics tab. You are all doing such a bang up job without me.  After all, it's not like we've seen the rise of the single worst political figure in American history despite universal disapproval from the Fark political commentators.  No, you are all doing the Lord's work here.

Let's see, going back away, there were those on the Right who hated Pelosi and on the Left there were those who claimed she was equivalent to the Right. There were often debates about why she wouldn't go ahead and impeach Trump, and debates about why she was rushing it. There weren't many that were defending Trump, however, there are reasons for that outside of this being an "echo chamber". It may have been because there is really no way to intelligently defend his actions.

Unfortunately he probably is on a glide path to re-election. Not because he's popular or successful but because the Republican Party will do everything they can to prevent a free and fair election.

2016 showed how little it takes to swing an election and now the republicans have the entire power of the federal government at their disposal.

Election fraud, voter suppression, rigged electronic voting with no audit trail. As long as they can keep the vote within a few percentage points in key states Trump is back in office. Republicans don't lose close elections.

The only hope of preventing this is to make sure trump loses by such a large margin that it would take more manipulation of the counts than could be concealed.

That means every single person that doesn't want to see another four years of Trump has to vote and they have to vote for Biden. I don't care how hard you have to hold your nose to do it. One of those two men is going to be the next President of the United States  and there is really no rational argument to be made that, of the two viable choices, Biden isn't clearly superior.
