I'm very bad at predictions, but I predict that within the next 10 years people will begin to vote based on rationality and policies rather than emotion and whether their lust for being pandered to has been sated.

Also I predict that the Browns will win the pennant this year. They're due.

Flipping states Blue is Trump's secret plan for eliminating Covid-19 altogether.

No Red States, no Covid-19 victims to count.

Actually, he's saying that they need to be wiped off the face of the earth.  Because they're vermin in his mind.


Conservatives are awful, but I just can't think of them as vermin.
Actual "vermin" have a productive role in the ecosystem. Actual "vermin" would in fact be missed if they were all suddenly exterminated.

LordJiro: Christian Bale: Texas will be soon, and after that the GOP doesn't win the presidency

Which is why Republicans are so hellbent on making sure they don't have to worry about little things like 'voters' anymore.

Power at all costs. That's all that matters to Republican filth.


With Ginsburg gone, even if Trump can't replace her in the next couple of weeks, it's still going to be a heavily right-wing Court that will hear all the lawsuits surrounding the election. If Biden manages to take office despite GOP attempts to steal everything in sight, and if the Democrats also take the Senate, then two things need to happen: (1) Expand the Court by six new Justices, and (2) declare the Republican Party a clear and present danger to the Constitution and outlaw it as a terrorist conspiracy.

I my area of Wisconsin there are more Biden signs than there were Clinton signs, but holy hell there are a lot of Trump signs.


That is so baffling to me.  What does he have to do to get people to realize that he is a terrible person and unfit for any kind of public office?

BrerRobot: "Ever think that Republicans might be scared of votes being manipulated because they do it to each other all the time? From what I've experienced, they are always trying to one up each other with power plays. If they can't even build a platform big enough for all conservatives, how the hell will they ever build a vision for our future that is truly inclusive?"

Biden keeping it close has coattails.  He's hired a few more people in these parts and I see his ads on TV.  I think his main focus should be on PA,MI, WI, AZ, FL, and NC, but if he has the resources, a little attention to TX is good.

NeoCortex42: DrD'isInfotainment: It seems to be true of New Hampshire as well. Everyone thinks it's a GOP State but it has gone blue since Obama in 08 and has stayed that way.

It's a purple state.  In 2016, it was a very slim margin in favor of Clinton.  It currently has a Republican governor on pace to get reelected and while it currently has 2 Democratic Senators, that could easily go either way in a given election.


it's drifting Blue regardless of Sununu, who's governing a lot like the Dems. Just look at his agreement with all recommendations for police reform. Sure , Rubs can win but their days as the dominant party are over.
