    Default The 2020 US Election Thread, Born Anew (or was there one?)

    So, 2020. Conventions behind us, debates ahead, election about two months away.

    So, for those who've been following - what are you thinking? Biden? Trump? Who do you prefer? Who do you think is realistically most likely to elect?


    I'll post my answers later as it's been a long day and can't be bothered right now. All I can say is I'm pretty sure the forecast will be clearer after the debates.
    In 20 years, YouTube, Twitter, and Facebook will merge together into one super big time-wasting site called YouTwitFace.

    I vote for the candidate who will send us twirling, twirling, twirling towards freedom.

    I'm voting for a candidate who can trump Donald. That candidate is the one and only Joe Biden (as far as I'm concerned about Trump, I cannot stand him at all, and I've had enough of his BS. It's time for him to face reality; fake news is gonna give way to real news if Trump loses the election).

    In a nutshell, I hope Trump doesn't get another 4 years as president of the United States. If I get another opportunity to visit the United States someday (the only state I've been to is Maine), I hope it's when Trump is no longer president (and the sooner that happens, the better).

    That makes two of us. I also hope there are cops waiting to arrest him when he leaves the White House in January for all of the crimes that he has committed.

    I'm afraid Trump can't buy the entire Canada to join the USA. He did attempt to buy Greenland from Denmark though. I could have swindled him for some money because my surname is Finnish for Denmark, we all know about Trump's knowledge on Finnish names.

    I am in Canada, yes. I'm just saying that if I could get in a vote, it would go to Biden hands down.

    I am voting for the turd sandwich, because we tried the giant douche and that was a colossal failure.

    Kind of a mess. Trump was constantly interrupting, not allowing Biden to talk. At one point Trump was even arguing with the moderator, which is unheard of. Trump answered non of the questions and even refused to denounce white supremacist, when he was given the chance to do so.

    For me, the highlight of the night was when Biden told Trump to shut up. It was about time someone stood up to him publicly and told him off to his face, which Biden did do a few times during the debate.

    Oh, that's Trump for you...once an idiot, pretty much always an idiot. But I'm satisfied that Biden put Trump in his place when he told Trump to shut up. It's a shame that the Trump Donald game (the one where you use a trumpet to mess with Trump's hair; it is sooo funny!) was taken down though (has anyone here heard of it?); I can't help but wonder if Trump himself wanted it taken down to stop people who dislike him from mocking him?

    I never heard of that game but making fun of his hair is a fairly common thing to do.

    Do you honestly just log on with the sole purpose of saying stupid shit nowadays?

    The country has seen over 228 thousand deaths and a catastrophic spike in the unemployment rate due to a lack of a competent response to the pandemic.

    He has repealed laws on gun restriction for the mentally unwell, while also applauding the actions of police officers that resort to lethal shootings as a means of deescalation.

    He has empowered neo-fascists to parade his statements as a slogan, while in the past declaring others of their ilk as "very fine people".

    He has demeaned women, defined fallen soldiers as losers and compared himself to America's most celebrated presidents.

    This is after winning an election with fewer votes, following a campaign trail that should not have even survived past this bullshit in the first place.

    Looks like Biden won. I'm happy with this outcome.

    It looks like Trump plans on doing everything in his power to de-legitimize the results with various lawsuits and spreading conspiracy theories.

    I honestly think I would have made a better president than both of these losers, so I'm gonna run for president in 2024, and I'm hoping to get ALL the votes!
