Please describe how it is that Biden merits the same descriptors as Trump.

During the debate, when Trump was asked if he would condemn white supremacy and right wing militias who are causing problems at protests, he didn't do it. The best he could do was tell the proud boys to "stand by." The two sides aren't the same.

I can feel America's humiliation from 6K miles away.  What a shltshow.  Even after this sociopath is dragged screaming from the White House and into prison, America will never live this down.  And we don't deserve to.

Andrew Yang made an astute comment what Trump accomplished tonight:

Down ballot republicans will be hurt by the debacle and could give control of the senate to the Democrats

Control of the senate is going to be totally dependent on how successful Trump is at stealing the election. There just isn't enough ticket splitting these days for the Rs to keep the senate if they lose the White House - they're vulnerable in too many races.

Senate races and other contests down the ballot will be affected by republicans who can no longer support the Liar-in-chief and simply stay home.

I was struggling with what I was going to do in the House of Representative race in my district.  In 2016 I voted for Don Bacon, voting for him wasn't option this year.  Kara Eastman is well to the left of what I would be comfortable voting for and she was the reason I voted for Bacon last time.  I've been struggling with voting for a Libertarian or Eastman and the Proud Boy comment just assured that I need to vote for Eastman even if I don't like her at all.  Luckily my mail in ballot arrived yesterday so I'm going to will it out and drop it off so I can't change my mind.

Letter to the editor in this morning's paper:


Exercise your right to vote

About 40% of eligible voters did not vote in 2016. That means that four in 10 voters left it up to the other six to determine who would run our country. You have to vote! You can't just abstain because you don't like either candidate, because that leaves it up to other people to make the decision for you.

Think of it this way: A vote for one candidate is a vote against the other one. Hold your nose while you cast your ballot if you have to, but vote for the person you dislike the least. Sometimes you have to choose between the lesser of two evils, if you will.

Yes, but it's also a product of stupid people watching and believing Fox News.  And Facebook.

People like to think of voting like you are getting married... its more like  being on public transit. Just because there isnt a bus that gets you to your destination doesnt mean you just stay at home. you take the one that gets you closest to where you want to go, and work it out from there.

Is trump that person for you? i hope more people answer no to that.

I really don't think that works for conservatives. 

I'm going to agree a lot more with Republicans and Trump on issues than I am going to with any of the Democrats.  The issue has to be that Trump is a line that cannot, should not be crossed.

NBC just announced that Trump has tested positive for Covid-19.
