    Had to listen to the anti President Obama crowd foam at the mouth for 8 years. Now it’s the anti President Trumpers.

    In other words, not even a close comparison.

    I get it. You don't believe the south votes based on religion. We disagree. Move on.

    not so important that Trump gets re-elected now, if he gets a SCOTUS appointment, that's the only reason I prefer Trump over Biden. Either way, they are both buffoons and my vote is going for Jorgensen. 5% in most states, will give Libertarians official ballot status, no more getting signatures to get on the ballot,

    Speaking of wasting votes...

    As always, there will be hard line retaliation for what trump and the republicans are doing. Once the dems obtain control of all three branches, a very REAL possibility, the payback is going to be epic. Trump will shove through his religious zealot, then the dems will add a seat to the court.

    Meanwhile, the libertarians....

    Two seats. And statehood for dc and pr. Four more senators.

    Overdue IMHO. Time to stop being held hostage by the minority.

    Both should become states regardless of the political climate. Long overdue.

    My disgust and utter contempt for libertarians and related ilk has done nothing but increase exponentially as of late.

    The political sideshow that only serves to assist the shittiest candidate.

    That quote did not appear until decades after Einstein died. Your vituperation might be better supported by something he actually said.

    This would be a good one for you to ponder:

    “I prefer an attitude of humility corresponding to the weakness of our intellectual understanding of nature and of our own being.”
    Actually written by Albert Einstein.

    Japanese invaded 12/10/41. There were only about 150 Marines on the island. The Governor, a US Navy Officer, instructed them to surrender the next day out of concern further resistance would lead to civilian casualties.

    The Japanese defended it with a division but it was Liberated from Japanese occupation after invasion 7/21/44. But one Japanese soldier held out until 1972!

    First debate between Biden and Trump is tonight, 9:00 to 10:30pm on many media outlets.

    The Moderator is Chris Wallace.
