Good for her. She's not off-setting all the losses the GOP has due to Trump, which will be evident when we lose the Senate and Trump gets sent packing.

Bravo. All you need to do is turn off your emotional brain for a few minutes and think.

But, didn't Biden just tell us that everyone in the black community is the same, that they can't think for themselves? Or wait, per Joe the person in the video isn't actually black. Sure glad we have Joe to keep it all clear for us.

Must be faulty thinking. Maybe she's one of those black cocaine junkies?

It comes down to people taking the time to look at the issues. Conservative policies will always win.

Somehow Trump team has to break thru the media/academia wall of lies to reach voters such as this one.

conservative policies NEVER win, ultimately.

The arc of history bends towards liberal policy in every case, even if sometimes very slowly.

- Trump has it right regarding China.
- Low skill workers see a $500 billion transfer of money to immigrants/illegals.
- Trump's economy was historic before china virus.
- Prison reform.
- Requiring our allies to pay their fair share.

Contrast these with democratic run cities and states. Homelessness and debt.

Facts do matter.

Nope, "she ain't black". She's just another one of those un-woke white privilege people that should be paying reparations to the black community.

I think every American should make one of these, and we will count them. Safe, Covid free way of voting.

Aren't anecdotes great?

we didnt' get information at all? no empathy? Joe Biden doesn't care about his family and isn't going to take care of him. Joe Biden has never built an economy.

define "liberal" policy, I might agree with you. Conservative policy just means slow to change, reverence to tried and true methods.

100% serious question. By what metric would you say justifies the claim, “greatest economy in history”?

A sampling:
- Unemployment rate lowest in 1/2 century.
- Record lows for unemployment rates for african americans and those without a high school degree.
- Poverty rates for african americans hit a record low in 2018.
- Net wealth of bottom half has increased by more than 3 times the top 1%.

Pretty much every long term advancement of the human condition originated from liberal thought.

Representative government. Eliminating slavery. Women's suffrage. Equal rights laws. Trust busting. Free public education.


My guess is universal health care will be the next.

So are you saying all liberalization is good? Should government take over the means of production then? Should we establish a wealth limit as AOC has suggested? Defund the police? Restrict religion as we see in China? Implement a social credit system to make sure society is not "damaged" by individual rights? Conservatism has served to improve the human condition by opposing these things and championing faith, family, hard work, security.

Liberalism doesnt easily apply to dem/repub in the issues you mentioned if that is the point you are trying to make.

There is a need for being open to appropriate change but need to be careful not to throw the baby out with the bathwater.

Interesting that you failed to answer the question, and included a mix of policies from very different political philosophies.

Those are all true, but it’s also a garbage fake economy built on a paper foundation, and it is not sustainable.

What you're describing is the larger classic liberalism and much broader than just U.S. political parties. The centrists in both parties generally follow this with moderate Democrats traditionally emphasizing the social aspect and Republicans emphasizing the economic aspect. Both are needed for a functioning government. You will argue with me, but I personally feel the DNC has been moving significantly away from the economic aspects of classic liberalism, and maybe even the civil liberties, which is why my my voting has shifted away.

I disagree. Less regulation, lower taxes for corps and a greater emphasis on the return of the US manufacturing base. All steps in the right direction.

Swamp critters for Biden!
She was working in the private sector when the Trump administration hired her and then promoted her. Weird how many Swamp Critters they hired and promoted.

Remember: when random Democrats decide to vote for Trump, it's noteworthy and indicative of a broad movement. However, when Republicans who held major elected office decide to vote for Biden, it's because they're members of the Swamp and can be ignored completely

Actually, you accidentally got close to truth there. Political R's became #neverTrump because they ARE swamp members and on the DC gravy train. While they are prominent and known in a lot of cases, the number of people they represent, people who actually benefit from the swamp dealings, are few. They get a lot of publicity.

By contrast, the number of people on the street who are switching is going to surprise you. You are going to see 15-20% of black people who vote, will now be Trump voters. Think about that. 16.5 million blacks voted in 2016. Trump got 8%. That means he got 1.3 million and Crooked Hillary got 15.2 million. That's a whopping 13.9 million edge for Crooked among blacks.

Let's go with the low end of 15% black vote for Trump (every poll seems to validate this as a floor). If we again have a 16.5 million black turnout, Trump now gets 2.5 million and Sleepy Joe gets 14 million. That's an 11.5 million edge for Sleepy. Still huge but a net gain of 2.4 million for Trump!

#NeverTrump? Before the 2016 election that was a pretty substantial movement. A lot of Rs really doubted that Trump was going to keep his promises or be conservative. In the past he was a Democrat.

Then, to the surprise of many, even Trump voters......he kept most all of his promises! The #never Trump movement could fit on Bill Krystol's sinking yacht these days. The corrupt Rs have been mostly revealed and vanquished: McCain, Flake, Krystol, Rick Wilson. Romney is still around but he has been fully outed and shamed.

Finally, there are a lot of moderate Dems and certainly independents who have woken up to the fact that the media is lying through their teeth on behalf of Sleepy Joe and the Dems and that the hard left (the Squad plus) have taken over the Dem party. They are going to vote Trump. If there are people out there who are undecided, that means that they DO NOT have TDS, which you are badly afflicted with, and they are almost certainly going for Trump in November as a protest against the totalitarian left, Hollywood, the media and our woke athletes who hate America.

Oh by the way, Snyder, has signed on to teach at far left Harvard. No way you get a job there now without a #never Trump resume. Snyder was a whipping boy of the left for not allowing Syrian refugees in Michigan in 2015 and for the water quality scandal. Glad to see he is your new "moral compass." LOL!

Give up booze before election day. I don't want to see you become an addict when Trump loses in November.
