Fake money!

Well that and the five emails and texts I get every day asking for more money.  But I intend to keep giving until November to Biden and other Democrats.  Can't forget the Senate and House.

He did a tele town hall with Obama that brought in mega bucks, he needs to "keep his mouth shut" more often.

Combine that with the fact that Trump siphoned off a whole bunch of campaign dollars to pay for his legal team for the last 3 years, and he's been constantly using his family and friends to grift off millions of dollars that just "go missing" and it should be fun to watch his entire campaign run out of steam coming into November.

He can always fall back on foreign money, the GOP senators have made sure of that.

I am right there with you.  I give to Biden every month and now that Colorado has decided that Hick is the choice to take out Cory Gardner I will donate to him too.  Hell, now that the Repukes have nominated a complete loon for the 3rd district I will donate to the Dem nominee there as well in hopes that she will actually have a chance.  I estimate I will donate 10X the amount I donated in 2016.

Small donors can make a difference.

[Citation Needed] that America wants liberal candidates.

In districts the Democrats already hold by a lot and which have a moderate incumbent, yeah, maybe there is some room for a liberal to beat the moderate in the primary.  This is how AOC won her seat, for example.

But in most moderate, swing districts, the exact opposite is true-a moderate can win but a liberal will lose.  That's because, um, they are moderate districts, duh.

Look no further than Kentucky; my home state.

I really like Booker.  I donated $50 and watched the race closely, but I thought he might lose because outside of Louisville and Lexington, support for a black progressive candidate from the big, bad city would dwindle.

That's exactly what happened.

A registered Democrat in Seattle is a completely different person from a registered Dem in Paducah.  This is still the norm.

Biden is doing lots of (mostly virtual) campaign events.  It's just that the press doesn't cover them much, mainly because there's little actual news made in them.  He does rarely give actual interviews for whatever reason, which is an issue.

Yes, but what do they want?  It's a mystery why anyone would give money to Biden without a Quid Pro Quo!  Like, do they want someone who won't screw up a pandemic and kill hundreds of thousands of Americans?  Pashaw. Maybe they want someone who will read their intelligence briefs and care about Russians giving money to kill our soldiers?  Impossible. Maybe they want someone who doesn't invite foreign governments to interfere in our elections and try to bribe them for fake investigations?  It is to laugh.  Personally, I'd give $500 easy, if it meant I never had to hear about another Trump tweet where he displays his ignorance and mental unbalance.

Believe it or don't, money doesn't matter much on a Presidential level, either in the primaries or general election.  Sure, you need $X to play the game, but having $2X or $10X or $100X doesn't help you much if voters don't like you.  Jeb! found this out real quick in 2016.

Remember, this is how Biden won the primary: White people couldn't decide in the first three contests, black people liked Biden in the fourth, Biden won the nom.  Biden was farking broke when he won South Carolina.

Biden won the nom despite having no money, because African Americans in South Carolina liked him a lot.  He did not win the nom because some sort of secret group of insiders gave him a bunch of money; exactly the opposite is true.  In the Democratic Presidential Primary, Black Lives really do Matter.

People are not used to a campaign season in the age of Covid 19.  No more rallies and stump speeches at every major city in order to drum up interest, which means it's a lot quieter than we are used to.  And tweeting a hundred times everyday never makes sense.  Trump does it only because he has major emotional and personality issues.  Normal people do not do things like that.

I'll vote Biden but let's stop pretending that voting for Biden is going to fix a lot.

Democrats aren't there to REVERSE terrible Republican laws, they're there to MITIGATE them.  To sell them to their supporters.

Again, look at Obama.  Did he reverse the Bush tax cuts?  Nope, made 'em permanent.  Did he rein in the intelligence communities?  Nope. gave them more power.  Did he stop the imperial wars?  Nope, expanded them,

So to review: you're a dope.

Yeah, he's very fortunate that Trump is such a fark up at this point that giving interviews is just an opportunity to interrupt his opponent while he's making a mistake.  But one of the reasons Clinton lost was because Trump constantly phoned into morning news shows and Clinton rarely gave interviews.

The state of Colorado added 380,000 people to the medicaid rolls due to the ACA.  None of those people are rich donors.  Many, including people I know are alive today because of the ACA.  Obama had his flaws but to claim nobody but rich donors benefited from his presidency is nonsense.

Oh, and as I stated above I am one of those people funneling money into his coffers.  Reality is that it takes money to win an election.  Thems the rules of the game.  If Biden doesn't play, Trump wins.  I would love to see a constitutional amendment to limit campaign spending but we don't have that so he has to raise money.

Your concern is noted, and it will be mocked.
