I have no idea why anyone is talking about Donald Trump like he's the president.  Would have loved to see him run in 2016, compare with what Hillary has done to the country over the last four years.  Disgusting.

Can I use this thread to just express my extreme hatred for the EC? Utah WILL vote for the dumbass. I want my vote to count for a win or loss for POTUS with ALL citizens. Not just Utah brainwashed garbage voters. Grrrrrrrr

Kill the EC please!

I wonder what lengths the Grand Ol' Lemon Party will go to in the next 9 days to try and fark up the election process in their favor.

Keizer_Ghidorah: Th entire reason Moscow Mitch is rushing ACB into the SC is so they can contest and throw out the results of the election if Trump loses, claiming widespread rampant Democrat voter and election fraud. Buses of illegals with fake IDs being driven around the country, people putting multiple ballots in, Democrat ballot counters no throwing out all the fraudulent votes, etc. Trump and all of his sycophants and cult will bay for blood on November 4th, and the Supreme Court and his domestic terrorists will be happy to oblige.


Then we burn down the Supreme Court with Mitch bound and gagged on a pile of firewood.

yukonexceptionialism: if Trump loses you're going to find a lot of people who voted for him the first time, and no one who voted for him the second time.


I have a solution for that.

Too soon to celebrate. The date of casting votes has become a partisan issue. Republicans have rejected early voting, and will vote en masse on Election Day. We really don't know yet how that's going to play out.

No.

There was an interview with that asshole I caught on my newsfeed today.

It is solely because "they can't undo it." McConnell was gloating that everything that's been done the last four years will be undone pretty quickly, but "they'll be stuck with this [Barrett] for the next 40 years."

I've never heard anything like that from McConnell before. He openly said the only reason for Barrett was to stick it to the libs. And for no other reason.

He knows Trump is going to lose, he's going down too, and this is just a last mean fark you to America.


I guess when you're an unremarkable anus, you'll do anything to make sure history remembers you, even if it's as a gaping asshole.

Election day should be a national holiday. Not one of those jammed against a weekend so all the morons drag out their jet-skis holidays, but, mid-week (maybe a Tuesday). Absentee voting if you really need it. Enough polling places where anyone can vote in 10 minutes. (My own polling place, I've never even had to wait in a line. Not once in 25 years.)  

I haven't voted yet because I don't trust the mail-in system. I trust the Post Office - they're cool for the most part - except for the occasional missing package that vorps itself into someone's bag at the dizzy center. I'll vote at the poll on tuesday. 

We really need a national voting standard. Some states use punch cards, some use paper ballots, some use electronic, fark it wouldn't surprise me if Rhode Island was still using the old lever machines. 

In SF, we have paper ballots that are scanned by a machine. In a world where digital farkery is all too common, this is a pretty good system. You can always go back and count them by hand. (Assuming there's a verified provenance.)

And we need to teach Americans that maybe not every election can be settled the second the polls close on the east coast. Farkin football fans, "BUH WHO DONE WON?"

Give it a few days. Let the poll workers do their thing. 

I don't like early voting. I think it breaks more things than it fixes. Well, in most years. This year with the pandemic maybe it's ok. I don't know. But if a site like Fark that's filled with wacko gun nuts is tilting overwhelmingly to Biden, well, maybe we have a chance. 

Vote, lefties. 

I was motoring back from seeing some relatives out in the east bay a few weeks ago. Not more than half an hour from San Francisco. There was a group of people on a freeway overpass flying Trump flags. I rolled down my window, amongst much honking, and flipped those farkers the bird, at the exact same moment another guy in another pickup truck ahead of me did the same thing. 

It gave me hope.

But god damn. Bay area Trumpers. Th' fark are you thinking?

The day was chosen so that land owners to get on their coach after Church on Sunday and still go vote.  It is gross.  The fact the most power democratic nation in the World has a one day election on a non-holiday Tuesday is because the only people the rule were written for were white male land owners.  No one else got a vote back then, no Black, no women, no poors.

Yeah, won't happen to Trump party members.  You see, us in Trumplandia don't wait in elections.  Ever.  There are plenty of polling stations, all well staffed and efficient.  The voting machines are always in good condition, so there are never any problems.  Waiting is for, well, *those* people.

I'll go early in the day of the election.  I won't wait more than 5 minutes, guaranteed.  I never have


Yep. All the Podunk towns have shiny well-kept signage pointing the way to the voting precint. Every other part of these towns is in disrepair.

yukonexceptionialism: Trump has likely irreparably damaged his chances by attacking mail-in voting. Trump was the underdog during the last election and Americans love to cheer for an underdog. His campaign is running the same playbook but even his dumbest supporters know that Trump is not the underdog anymore. The closer to Election Day, the more chances his voters will decide he's a loser. Americans don't vote for losers. On Election Night, the Republican votes are just going to fizzle. I'm not expecting a huge shift to Democrats, rather the votes just won't be there. As it's been said many times before, if Trump loses you're going to find a lot of people who voted for him the first time, and no one who voted for him the second time.


You won't find many people who voted for him the first time in a decade or so. They will claim support for virtually anyone in 2016 except Hillary and now, Trump. They're shameless but they don't like being unpopular.

Your CA property taxes are fixed under Prop 13, and state income taxes, local sales taxes have nothing to do with Trump. Chances are you're actually getting screwed under the tax system that Trump has passed. 

And as far as "socialism" goes - you're already paying for it. Through taxes and premiums payed by yourself or employers - but you're not seeing the benefits. All that money is just getting funneled out of your pockets into the ruling class.

...

You're aware that immigration has been an issue that Trump has expounded on a great deal, that they built new facilities specifically to house all the children they've kidnapped, and you wonder if perhaps Obama - who never did any of that - might have kidnapped more children than Trump. Trump who has openly admitted to deliberately walking in on naked teenagers and has no particular empathy for others.

You think Obama might have a worse record on imprisoning kids than Trump?

I was asked why I was voting for Trump and I explained it's strictly for financial reasons.

Someone mentioned kids being separated from their parents and I replied that according to NPR there is a girl that's been separated from her parents for 6 years. I hope you can do the math. I don't have data on how many child separations occurred during the Obama administration vs the Trump administration.

I'm okay with either one winning. I just prefer to protect my finances if I can.

I'll add that my stocks have done well under Trump. My vote is strictly for financial reasons.

So racism, misogyny, us being a laughing stock on the world stage, kids being separated from their parents and now we can't find them and so much more is cool with you so long as you get a tax cut and your 401k improves?

You are disgusting.

Kids we're separated from their parents during to Obama administration. There is one case where a girl has been separated from her parents for 6 years, as per NPR.

/I don't think Trump borrowed Obama's time machine.

Do you genuinely believe that false equivalency? I want to know if I should farky you as evil or just stupid.

Well I don't know the Obama's administrations numbers so I'd like to see actual data.

...

You're aware that immigration has been an issue that Trump has expounded on a great deal, that they built new facilities specifically to house all the children they've kidnapped, and you wonder if perhaps Obama - who never did any of that - might have kidnapped more children than Trump. Trump who has openly admitted to deliberately walking in on naked teenagers and has no particular empathy for others.

You think Obama might have a worse record on imprisoning kids than Trump?

I have my answer.

I was asked why I was voting for Trump and I explained it's strictly for financial reasons.

Someone mentioned kids being separated from their parents and I replied that according to NPR there is a girl that's been separated from her parents for 6 years. I hope you can do the math. I don't have data on how many child separations occurred during the Obama administration vs the Trump administration.

I'm okay with either one winning. I just prefer to protect my fin ...

By the way, those tax cuts are instant gratification but they increased the deficit by a significant amount, which is economic stupidity in a growing economy. That money WILL need to be paid back and will be a drag on our overall economic recovery from the recession we are now in. That may directly or indirectly have a negative effect on your personal finances in the long run.

If you REALLY are interested in long term financial protection it is more complicated than "TAX CUT GOOD! ME LIKE TRUMP!" The very wealthy have the ability to overlook this, if you are very wealthy then you may have a point. If you get a pay check you are probably just the type of voter Trump wants.

Seriously, you should look into this.

The same reason that Orcs support Sauron.

Actually, I agree with you. It's another thing I can't stand about the Republican Party. They scream about the deficit and then spend like crazy when they're in office.

However, I still think I can do better with Republicans. I'll try to collect gains while they boost the market (Tesla and Apple pre-split) and when it crashes hopefully can pick up bargains. I did great during the housing crisis and would take advantage of that opportunity again.

I agree that money will be need to be paid back which is why I'm trying to secure a nice retirement. I'm not convinced social security will be there for me (maybe a minimal amount?) even if I live long enough to collect.

It may not count but it says so much about the person you are. I do pretty well financially, but there are more important things to vote for than making sure my well off ass does better.

Agreed. Not only greedy and short sighted but cant see a difference between Trump abd Biden?

That is either trolling or willfull ignorance.

Fair enough.

I was actually semi-impressed with Biden during the debates. He got his message across and was completely lucid.
