Hillary Clinton received three million more votes than Trump, and he won anyway. That's the reality when you're dealing with a rigged political system.People can either make their choices as it relates to the world as it is or they can hope for a fantasy of the world that they would like it to be. No matter how much they dislike the current choices, the next President will be Trump or Biden and a vote for another candidate is as good as voting for Trump. Like it or not, that is the reality.
The system was broken long before Trump came along, and he was able to exploit it with his faux populism. Biden's moderate Republican policies will make that inevitable yet again.
It is true, and the finger's pointing right where it belongs. Both Michael Torrance and CeeCee72 took shots at voters like me, so tell them to "own it."That's not strictly true. Except, for one throwaway comment by one forum member this thread, everything was about Trump and his suggestion that the election should be postponed. Everyone else was discussing the issue in relation to Trump's motives and how he has tried to overreach power in the past. You chose to shift the focus to an attack on Biden, and that perfectly fine, discussions are allowed to develop and change direction, but own it rather than point an accusing finger elsewhere.
Imagine if this was a thread about a Biden proposal, and I strolled in and said all of you Biden supporters are naive, ludicrous, ignorant, and obtuse. Would that go unchallenged?
I try to stick to discussing the candidates as much as possible, but if people want to personalize their opinions, I'm happy to oblige.
