Presidential election.
#31
RE: Presidential election.
This election cycle my wife and I requested an absentee ballot. They both arrived and we filled them out that night. Complete with 2 first-class postage stamps each, my wife dropped them off at a post office 2 towns away from our residence the following day. Two days latter the postal service delivered them back to my house in the daily mail. I then took them to my local post office and spoke with the post master there. After explaining what happened, she made a disgusted looking face and said that she had some others that needed to go to the election's office as well. This time they made it to the proper destination. I am now believing that we don't need any corruptness, we have enough ineptitude to screw things up all ready.

RE: Presidential election.
Being disabled, I signed up for the permanent Absentee ballot option. This was the first election doing so. I had to buy my own stamp, but it beat standing in line. Absentee requires you to ID when requesting it, and FWIW I got a voter acceptance email about 2 days after buying the stamp at a local post office and the clerk dropping it in an outbound mail tray.

Unfortunate, I think whoever wins the Presidency, America loses one way or the other. If Trump is re-elected, we have 4 more years of Democrats attacking the President and Americans in general. If Biden wins, we may lose rights and freedoms currently held and enjoyed, and may never get them back.

You overlooked several things we will have to endure if Trump wins. Four more years of a president who puts feeding his ego and consolidating his personal power ahead of the welfare of the people. Four more years of a president who is a compulsive liar. Four more years of outrageous behavior that is an embarrassment to the entire country. Perhaps four more years of mismanagement of the worst threat to our welfare in a century, the covid 19 pandemic. (I say perhaps out of hope that an effective vaccine or therapeutic will be developed. I have no hope that Trump will listen to experts in medical science.)


You worry about loss of freedoms under a Biden presidency but what greater threat to freedom could we have than Trumps’ attempt to prevent the counting of legitimately cast votes?


I held my nose and voted for Trump four years ago because I believed him to be the least of two evils. I’m not thrilled with Biden and am worried about a trend toward socialism but I worry more about a president who would like to be the American Putin.

RE: Presidential election.
I’m much more worried about Harris. She will be president in 2 years. Why 2 years?  Th 22nd amendment limits the term of the President to a total of 8 years (2 terms). BUT there is an exception - IF the Vice President becomes President after 2 years they can run for 2 more full terms. That would be 9 years and x number of months. 

She is the MOST LIBERAL member of the Senate.

I agree with you.... There was lot of critism about SNL and John Mulaney monolog, but he really didn't say anything, that's not true about the US political system:

The monolog referenced start around 04:19. He's right, nothing will fundamentally change, regardless which old man gets elected.

RE: Presidential election.
I have come to the conclusion that the deep divisions in this country that are blamed on Donald Trump, are actually the product of the media. Half the country sincerely believes what they read and hear from The NY Times, Washington Post, MSNBC, CNN, ABC, CBS, NBC and the social media feed and entertainment industry.  The other half is reading WSJ, Fox and a handful of other media outlets that still verify their reporting. We are divided by what we know and believe. Too often we judge those we disagree with rather than blame the agenda driven media that wedged us apart. Those that disagree with us see our news as fiction. Your reality probably depends on where you get your news. I am really tired of hearing Trump so badly misrepresented by the narratives I know to be false. Half of us don’t agree there is any truth behind it. Please respect that we will not agree.

Until the media is recognized for what it is we will continue to fight among ourselves while the billionaires and politicians that created this discord, abscond with the nation’s treasure.

RE: Presidential election.
I'm relieved to know that Kanye West has conceded the election. Now that he has, we can all once again focus on Trump and Biden.

RE: Presidential election.
I'm in agreement with Sleeprider about the media being the problem.

This is not new info. We no longer have mainstream media that reports news and just leaves it that. The media has to inject their opinion, and even replace truth and news reporting with projecting their Utopia hard left liberal, socialist agenda as news. Even Fox news is on the liberal side of center. I believe they called this Arizona election for Biden early and did intentionally impact their election results.

There are more freedoms to lose, and I'd rather handle COVID handling as Trump has than ones like my own dope Governor Wolf. Do you want to be told to stay in your home and/or wear masks everywhere permanently, like it is now? Mask wearing that we know does not help anything. And while the Liberals do not wear masks, gather in large groups, etc. The Liberals do not obey any restrictions they tell us is necessary to prevent virus spread. If it were real, why do they fearlessly go about without masks, etc? Fauci cannot even do social distancing or wear masks at times. He's on record of lying to America about masks, supposedly to preserve them for medical staff.

The Democrat Governors were the ones that shut the states down not Trump. The Democrat Liberal Governors made businesses like restaurants close, some permanently. Deaths in the nursing homes are the fault of Democrats like Wolf and Rachel in PA. Trump did not cause this mess, but Democrat Governors did this to Americans. Trump did not divide America into white vs black or male vs female or rich vs poor. Liberals and the media did that and are still doing it. It's a socialist plan to divide us into smaller groups, stir up our emotions, and then erase these groups' influence and turn us into attacking ourselves instead of the real problem. Liberals deflect blame back to Conservatives. Liberals break laws and no charges, but Conservatives are/were in jail for not breaking laws.

I'll go out on a limb for this, I do think there was/is a virus that is a form of flu, or pneumonia, or something else that was called flu, pneumonia, etc. until this year. Now we call it COVID. And the virus got politicized by Liberals and the media. Further, I think some time after the election is over, "COVID" disappears and flu, pneumonia, etc instances go up, or more likely are going to be mentioned again as in the past.

Similarly, where is the Russian scandal, the supposed need for impeachment? Trump did not do what Liberals accused him of. They made it up in an attempt to steal the presidency and erase the vote of the people. Russian scandal like what Vice President Joe Biden actually did, bribing Russians to not investigate his son Hunter is real but let's not investigate. Instead, make up crimes about Trump and arrest innocents, but no investigations and no arrests for those that really did break laws. This is an ongoing opposite day that will destroy America, it's still going on, and it's not Trump or Conservatives that caused it. The media and Liberals/Socialists did and are still doing it.

Last comment, I do not look to any politician as my moral guide, that's the role of my pastor and the other saints I serve God with in fellowship. That does not mean I condone sinful acts by any elected official. Even so, when it comes to the choice Trump or Biden, I vote Trump every time as long as he stands for what he does now. Binden is a socialist puppet and as soon as they can get away with it, if the liberals win the presidency, they will throw Biden under the bus, Harris and crew are in charge, and America as we know it is gone. They will not play by any rules or laws. I'd be surprised if the US Constitution is even still around within a month of them winning if they do. It is that serious.

Hate me for saying all the above, as I really don't care what people think about me when it comes to things like destroying American rights and freedoms. And the same feeling of I don't care what others think applies also when it comes to my religious beliefs about God, the Bible and truth.

RE: Presidential election.
Dave, I for, don't hate you. We have strong disagreements withe respect to Trump but from what I see of your efforts to help others on this forum I believe you to be a good person for whom I have respect. One of my my best friends who is a person of the highest integrity is a Trump supporter. We have agreed to disagree and it is has not effected our friendship. I have not been personally offended by anything said in this thread and hope no one has been offended by my comments. Our nation can only survive if we respect one anotheras' differences of opinion

RE: Presidential election.
I wasn't directing any of my "Hate me for saying all the above..." to you Melman. In fact it's not directed to anybody specifically at all. Just a generic passerby-ish if someone "despises Dave's comments" thing. We each can vote for whomever we choose, and even if it's not who I voted for, I will fight by your side for your right to vote and for every other right as well. In fact I did sign up to fight for all our rights in 1986, but my back injuries even then prevented me from actually doing so. So you'll have to trust me, no part of my comment was directed at anyone in a personal manner.
