I sincerely hope the voters overturn Democracy.  If they do, it would be in line with the Founders who had no use for Democracy as they, as you all know, created a Constitutional Republic.  I would be gloriously happy to see Democracy thrown into the dumpster where it belongs.

The amusing thing, the ironic thing, would be the danger the Libtard Leftists would be in if we really had a Democracy where the 51% of Americans would vote them onto a remote island in the Pacific Ocean where they could "celebrate" all the obnoxious things they seem to stand for.

I'm curious to see if Haley wins anything today. Most are saying it will be a blowout for Trump, but I heard Virginia might go Nikki.

I am not looking forward to seeing that crap again everyday. I don't care if you're left or right - if you're gonna be an "I'm moving to Canada!" blowhard, then shutup and just move.

Given the Democrat's control over the elections apparatus in many states, including all of the important swing states, you may be counting your sheep before the are hatched.  Trump's lead in the polls isn't such that it couldn't be overcome by fraud at this point.
If there really was intelligent life on other planets, we'd be sending them foreign aid.

Conservatives see George Orwell's "1984" as a cautionary tale.  Progressives view it as a "how to" manual.

My wife often says to me, "You are evil and must be destroyed." She may be right.

Liberals believe one should never let reason, logic and facts get in the way of a good emotional argument.

I think we're going to see MAJOR fraud, with many of the "voterseses" feeling justified in making sure that "he's worse than a Nazi" isn't elected.
 
They need to serial number, and track, absentee ballots. And they won't.

We need to abolish mail in voting (except for deployed military and a few other special cases).  In person, single day voting only for the vast majority of people, ID/citizenship verification required, dip your finger in indelible ink.

I used to do and liked mail-in voting, but I already started questioning it in 2016 and 2020 was the last straw. I too, say show up except in special cases. I'm fine with coming up with new ways to make in-person voting more efficient.

While I don't have the problem in my rural state, I know in some big cities people have to wait multiple hours to vote. Something should be done to streamline that. While voting is a right and a responsibility, I don't think you should have to wait in line for more than an hour in the USA. Fixing that would remove a large portion of the complaints that have led to widespread mail-in voting.

Meanwhile on Planet Brandon Biden is ranting that he is ahead of Trump in the polls and the press isn't reporting it.

Well, Virginia didn't go for Haley or even get close to doing so. Vermont is actually pretty close. Everyone else reporting in so far has Trump leading by wide margins.

The AK Guy did well enough that he's headed for a runoff with the Republican incumbent.

I honestly hope Brandon wins that. Even if my YouTube will be less fun, CSPAN will be significantly more entertaining.

Now how many states are going to defy the Supreme Court and keep Trump off the ballot?

Bypass the states
And not to keep just Trump off the ballot.

Quote
Calling it "one on a huge list of priorities," Rep. Jamie Raskin, D., Md., announced that he will be reintroducing a prior bill with Reps. Debbie Wasserman Schultz, D-Fla., and Eric Swalwell, D-Calif., to disqualify not just former President Donald Trump but a large number of Republicans from taking office.
Quote
He pledged to reintroduce a prior bill that would declare Jan. 6 an "insurrection" and that those involved "engaged in insurrection."

Has a snowball chance in hell and I would like to see more details on the bill but it does gives a clue in just how far they're willing to go with this madness

Brandon Herrera didn't win, but he forced Gonzales into a runoff.  Herrera would need to pick up almost all of the votes that went to Clark, Lopez, and Avila to have topped Gonzales.  Doesn't look great, but who knows.

I see that Washington state was counting my presidential primary vote for Nikki Haley just as she was withdrawing from the race.

So do you guys think there will be a Trump vs Biden debate before the election? Talking heads all seem to be pointing to "no". Whether it's conservatives calling Biden a chicken, or lefties saying "he doesn't need to lower himself to a debate", the consensus seems to be that there won't be a debate.

I'm leaning towards "no" as well. I just can't see his handlers allowing it. In a live debate, as soon as Trump starts being Trump and throwing "non-previewed" questions at Biden, Biden will lock up, and there's no going back from the optics of that.
