    Or else you get this for at least four more years:

    Trump Praises Brutal Dictator


    Do you really think Trump is going to win in November ???

    Your problem is not political, it's economical.

    5 million Americans lost jobs to robotization. There are car factories bigger than football stadiums that don't employ any humans. Another many millions of Americans lost jobs to globalization, to China, Mexico, India etc. The new GPT-3 AI algorithm, sponsored by Elon Musk, is going to replace both journalists and programmers (like myself).

    Of course, all these people who either lost jobs or whose jobs are under a threat will be radicalized.

    You need to create a new economic and social model, that can function without friction with robotization, globalization, and AI.

    Blaming it on immigrants might make you happier, but it is obviously not going to solve it.

    Trump WILL WIN election in November, because he'll do whatever it takes.

    What are you talking about, Dejan? The crushing economic fall-out of robotic automation is a global problem, not a US problem. The UK and the other industrialized nations are getting devastated by the economic impact of this, just as we are. The only difference is the size of our population. So it's not a problem for the US to solve - it's a problem that the developed world must solve, or we'll see calamitous economic/political/social repercussions all around the globe.

    Frankly the only solution I've seen is the UBI - universal basic income. Which would have to be funded by taxing the crap out of the multinational, automated, corporations. But since the corporations now control all of the governments in the developed world (and most of the undeveloped world), there's a roughly 0% chance of that ever happening. Ergo, the world will soon go up in flames as people revolt against the poverty they've been forced into and the corruption that now controls the world.

    And I used to think that Trump had his re-election in the bag, but with >160K dead Americans at his feet due to his incapacity for anything even remotely resembling leadership in the face of this global pandemic, there's probably a slightly greater than 50% chance that he'll lose the election to a corrupt Washington lifer with advanced dementia and a creepy habit of sniffing young girls.

    It's darkly amusing that in a nation of 330 million, the best challenger that can be put forward against the awful Donald Trump is Joe Biden.

    Exactly!

    Why both EU and China, for different reasons, are hoping that Trump nightmare will go away after November.

    I think Trump's going to win, using the same methods as Putin and Belarus Luhkachenko.

    But, when everything is said and done, Trump was really a "fun" president.

    It's astonishing that's the best the Democrats could come up with to challenge Trump, the Libertarians chose a better candidate than the Democrats...

    Biden is steered by Sander. Bernie the Marxist/communist and Caca-Kamala will drive it through if Biden wins.
    We must see to it the Marxism virus does not win.

    Of course Andrew Yang had a solution to this very problem but he's a liberal Democrat Asian-American, so it doesn't matter if what he says is on point and ahead of the curve, he gets 5% max and the Gaffe Machine is propped up against the Lie Machine that everyone will follow no matter how much he lies, distorts the truth, and does dumb sh*t.

    The guy who's gotten them all right says Propped up Biden over Don the Con.

    *My ideal ticket would have been Tulsi-Yang.*

    Imagine how sh*tty of a candidate and candidacy you must have to lose to such a corrupt barely awake creepy man with dementia like Joe Biden?

    Oh yeah Donald J. Trump. Unless he pulls off some bigger voter suppression, I don't see it. People are p*ssed.

    Bill Maher has revealed himself as "Q" the mastermind behind the movement. And he says to boycott the election.. But if you go, pull the lever for the one man who can make America great again - Kanye West."

    I grew up in a communist country.

    Bernie is not a communist, he's social-democrat. In the EU that's a soft leftie. Biden, by UK standards, Biden is conservative, at the best.

    If Bernie was a communist he would be running clandestine cells. organizing union straiks and holding secret meetings. That's what communists do.

    He'd make an interesting mayoral candidate for New York. If there's anything left of it after DeBlasio that is.

    Soul-Drifter I dig your profile avatar, but I had to log into the site when I read this just so I can reply to.

    The reason why Biden got into the race was because of the Sanders threat of gaining majority in the first round and nomination. The reason why Michael Bloomberg got into the race and spent 500M was to crowd the field and prevent the same - a Sanders victory. No they are not steered by Sanders or Marxist/Communist ideology - they are actually opposed to it. Biden is a conservative or centrist maybe - not a progressive at all and definitely not a Marxist.

    The Maoist/Marxist radical lunatics destroying property, looting, and tearing down statues are another matter. These are not Democrats either - or should have their own party at least. A highlight of the ridiculous situation the archaic 2 party system creates with these lunatics bunched into one same party, dividing up the country and further weakening it.

    Kamala is pro law and order, and at max applauded a 10% defunding of one police department, far from what the mob wants. Biden wrote a popular 1994 crime bill and supports same - law and order and police. That's all. If you're trying to scare people for not voting, at least use real stuff (dementia and other things). What you wrote doesn't reflect realities with a feel of desperation.

    The thing I've been Tweeting the most out of every political message is to make election integrity the #1 priority - where everything gets bottled up.

    1. Get rid of the "winner-take-all" electoral votes that eliminate any third party voice (read link below, don't need to kill EC just tweak!) Unconstitutional in current format argued too.
    2. In big elections implement RCV. Trump or Biden are pathetic options, and Libertarians or Greens (nivek's choice looks like) vote ultimately is a "throw-away vote" for. With RCV he should be able to get a 2nd option in.
    3. Eliminate or minimize both voter fraud and suppression (too much to list here and it's a wack a mole)
    4. Update DNC primary - an archaic process of "caucusing" 4 SAME STATES early decide who the nominee is every election - actually DNC already picked their nominee before it started. Rigged. And way too many "debates" - after the first debate 95% of the people already are decided, they just repeat themselves week after week after week - so annoying.

    Winner-take-all for Electoral College votes is unfair, unconstitutional
